What's a Wreck?

A Cake Wreck is any cake that is unintentionally sad, silly, creepy, inappropriate - you name it. A Wreck is not necessarily a poorly-made cake; it's simply one I find funny, for any of a number of reasons. Anyone who has ever smeared frosting on a baked good has made a Wreck at one time or another, so I'm not here to vilify decorators: Cake Wrecks is just about finding the funny in unexpected, sugar-filled places.

Now, don't you have a photo you want to send me? ;)

Homophoning It In

...and some lost?

(I love that you can clearly tell the W is the "fixed" version. What do you think it said before? "Juan"?)

(Great, now I desperately want to see a "Some Juan Is Having A Birthday" cake. YOUR MOVE, Juans of the world.)


Now is the "Are" of our discontent.


How much you wanna bet the customer actually wanted a picture here?

I guess the wreckerator wanted to keep that visual under wraps.



Followed by the all new Canadian Busy and Irish Industrious!


Thanks to Anony M., Nick N., and John & Kathy F. for the grate thyme.

All I can think of on that third cake is "When Quinn the Eskimo's streaking, everyone's gonna blink in surprise."

Well, I've seen plenty of idle teens hanging around, now that the weather's better; but, DANG, that was a shame with the phyicians' cake...."I'd like to buy a vowel!"

As a decorator, I would 100% do a "Some Juan is having a birthday" cake. Sounds hilarious 😂

It doesn't matter how well they are done, brown roses are never a good look.

C'mon, you all, American Idle is Eric's cousin from Philly.

It's not the ARE of discontent, it's their finest ARE.

I don't know that the Idle cake is a writing wreck. Have you seen 13 year olds?? Many of them are truly idle. Maybe it was a not so subtle prompt to get Sadie off her backside!
