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? ;)

Who's up for a snowball fight?

(I can't tell if the middle guy is volunteering or flipping me off.)

A pink bowling pin + a pair of bowling balls = everyone's mind in the gutter.

The Force is strong with this one.

Who needs third base?

Gee, these bones look a little dry. Do you suppose the grill chef is a master baster?

Carrie, Meg N., Tracy, Melanie V., Carrie G., & Amy L., I hear it relieves tension.

Grilling. I'm talking about grilling.

1. What was the last one supposed to be?

2. I wonder if they all had cream filling.

Sorry if anyone had the same comments; I didn't have time to read all the comments.

I love the science cupcakes. I've never felt so strangely drawn towards a graduated cylinder before....

Only wreckerators could make test tubes (science cupcakes, also saw atoms on others), a girl's dress (Kaitlyn's cake, I think that was what the big pink thing really was), a light saber and a baseball bat look phallic!

The light saber would have been great if only the wreckerator had done a straight cylindrical handle. Also, if the bat had been piped in tan or yellow (to represent wood, not a woodie), and made the body longer and thinner, and round end a little less pronounced, the baseball cake would have worked. (Was this cake a lingering effect of the Curse of the Bambino? After all, that was a Red Sox cake wreck.)

Is it just me, or is the 'lightsaber' supposed to be a bastardized stunstick from Half-Life 2?

The Red Sox hat and ball were great, if only they had left the "bat" off of it.

i do however know of a chocolate-vendor were they have a whole assortment of dicks and boobies on display (this is on 'the albert cuyp markt' in amsterdam by the way)

The first ones are supposed to be round-bottomed flasks, I believe. Wait, what are those snowmen do-AAAAAAAAUUUUUUUUGGGGGGHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!! Also, the poo-bears look slightly perverted and weird.

The "lightsaber" is a SCREWDRIVER! (Wow, inuendo is everywhere.) Also, the cookies have beakers, and i nearly peed myself trying to read this.

I am most disturbed by the baseball cake. The hat and ball are so well made that it just makes the...uh, other object...look more like an...other object. Wow.

the little snowmen were actually on a tv show (i think it was "how it's made but i could be wrong) but they actually aired on tv and i always thought they looked like snowwomen.....

The first thing I saw in the first one was graduated cylinders, but I am a scientist (and a lesbian.) The first thing I thought after seeing the last one was, "what are those dismembered members doing on that overcooked hamburger?"
