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? ;)

It's Like Beer Goggles For People With Dirty Minds

We all start out so innocent.

Every kid loves balloons, right?


Until one day, you start to look closer.

"Hey! Waaaait a second..."



Next thing you know, you see them circling everywhere.

Dancing, mocking you.


Gathering their forces.


Closing in. 

You: "Someone else is seeing this, right? It's not just me? TELL ME IT'S NOT JUST ME."

Everyone else: ::silence::

Everyone else: ::silence::

Everyone else: "Haaaaappy birthday toooo you!"


Don't worry, though, minions; eventually you learn to make peace with your new super power. And one day, you may even start to have fun with it.

Like this:





Admit it, our way is way funnier.

Enjoy your boring old "balloons" and "candles" everyone else; we'll just be over here nudging each other and snickering.


Thanks to Laura P., Danielle N., Amanda M., Deborah V., Sam H. & Cindy A. for not letting one climactic birthday go to her head.

Those are supposed to be candles on the last one? I thought they were multicolored zucchini, which was a bit odd, but pretty. I think the balloons, musical notes and random squiggles look like spermatozoa, but I do not see male appendages in everything with an aspect ratio greater than 2:1.

At first I thought you were referring to the alien boob on the first cake.

With the happy grinning nipple, if you look closely.

One day, balloons will be drawn for good instead of evil. Zucchini, maybe not.

#4: Tell me those are musical notes or geese.. Yeah, they're geese. Aren't they? AREN'T THEY??

I like 70’s cake, except for the blurps on the bottom layer.
