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? ;)

Is she a real wife,

...without the letter E?


Post-marital strife?

Buy a cake from the bakery!


Open your eyes,


Watch the monster cry,



He's just an old man!

He needs baked sympathy.


Because he's easy come,


Easy go,


Little high,


Little low!


Any kind of cake goes, as long as the batter's...


Na-il freeeeee.


Thanks to Kari Jo M., Kyla W., Jennifer L., Beth H., Randi H., Stacie B., Amanda H., Andrew H., Bronwyn G., & Sarah M. for helping me be a little mercurial. (See what I did there?)

LOL at the easy come - make me spray my coffee, why don't 'cha?

"Wif" is actually Old English for wife, woman, and weaver. So...yes. Yes she is.

Sharyn, you're the queen of song parodies for Cake Wrecks. And that was a killer, Queen!

May 22, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterMike

I am certain you can finish this song and festoon it with wrecks. Well done!

One of my FAVORITE songs, EVER!!! (And Mike's "killer Queen" will be in my head for hours! AHhhh!!)

I actually attended a wedding yesterday. I suppose that makes this post a bad omen for those newlyweds.

But I don't honestly care; I only went because my mom didn't want to go alone and I have no investment in whether or not the marriage succeeds.
