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? ;)

7 Tips For Gifts From The Garden Month

May is "Gifts From The Garden Month", minions, so let's see what garden-themed gifts our BAKERS have brought us.

::head tilt::



::head tilt the other way::



What... what is happening here.


Strawberry? Watermelon? Microbial migration?

The world may never know.


Well, if there's one gift we can always depend on from bakers, it's definitely carrot cake.

Yep, carrot cakes are always recognizable.

Just look for the circle of... fingers.

(Shhhh. There are innocents present.)


Sure, sometimes they get a little cold:

... and lumpy.


But grab them when they're fresh, and wreckerator carrots are hard to beat!

Bet you can't wait to get your hands on these, eh?

(Also now my title makes sense. YOU'RE WELCOME.)


Thanks to Carissa S., Erin R., Michelle L., Emma R., Sarah W., Vicki D., & Alisha M., who report that actually, they CAN wait.

There's baking happening here.
What they make ain't exactly clear.
A baker with his spatula there,
Telling me not to stop and stare.

It's time they stop, hey, is that a cake?
Everybody look, that baker's a flake.

There's icing lines being drawn.
The cupcake cake, it just looks so wrong.
The yellow one is blowin' my mind.
It's not something on which I'd want to dine.

It's time they stop, hey, is that a cake?
Everybody look, that baker's a flake.

What a field-day for these freaks.
Watermelon cake, is that what you seek?
Are those seeds, and is that a rind?
There's no way you can say these are fine.

It's time they stop, hey, is that a cake?
Everybody look, that baker's a flake.

Bad baking runs deep.
Now we have carrot cake creep.
Looks like dongs, that's what we say.
Someone come and, please, take these bakers away.

It's time they stop, now, for goodness sake.
Everyone knows these bakers are fakes.

I totally did the Head Tilt thing without even prompting... didn't help much; but it needed to be done.

"Carrot" Cake #1 has some ambiguous goo representing...carrot juice, perhaps???
Is it football season already? Because that first "cake" looks more like a football field than a carrot.

Why are 2 of the fingers bleeding on the first "carrot" cake? Ouch.

May 16, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterJulie

I'm sorry, but I have to know what #2 is. Squash? Pineapple? Melted lemon popsicles with a plant dropped on it? I WON'T BE ABLE TO SLEEP TONIGHT.

May 16, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterJennifer

#2 is a lemon viewed from above. The rest...ain't exactly clear. :)

There aren't even any babies riding those carrots!

May 16, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterFrankN.Stein

On that last cake, I count eight... umm... "tips". The title of the post says seven.

May 16, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterDancing with Lasagna

Yep, carrots. Or fingers. Ohhh-kay. Yikes!

May 16, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterChicago

Actually, there are EIGHT tips in the last photo.

May 16, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterMarilyn

My head tilted for all of these cakes and now I need a neck massage lol.

I see cake 2 as an abstract pear. Very, very abstract.

May 17, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterSeabird

Kudos to Mike! Well done, you!

I hear your "Huh." in Phil Dunphy's voice from Modern Family.
Don't know why, just do.
Carry on.
