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? ;)

Miss Piggy Goes Speed Dating

Now that Kermit and Miss Piggy have broken up, maybe she should try Speed Dating!

I can see it now...


"So. You're a pig."



[awkward silence]



"Don't worry; that's just Bob, my cold sore."



"Oh, were we not supposed to bring food to this thing?"






"My ex says I'm all hands, but really... those are feet."



"How do you feel about tadpoles?"



"Pick me up, and I promise I won't pee on you."



"These things? Darned if I know. Mom says I was born with 'em, but they just started growing the yellow bumps last year. You wanna feel?"


*Ding, ding, ding, ding, ding*

Um, maybe you should try Match.frog, Piggy.


Thanks to Missy N., Dianne W., Jenni M., Maddisun, Jake B., Jana Y., Katelyn M., Nancy S., & Erin R., and here's hoping Miss Piggy finds love again... before she croaks.

Was number 6 flattened by a semi?

I was so sad to hear of Kermit and Piggy's split. What is the world coming to when iconic couples from our childhood call it quits!? Next they'll be telling us that Mickey and Minnie have agreed to see other people!

@Degera: You cracked me up! "Other people"! (Let's see: frog-check....pig-check...Mickey & Minnie-mice. What did I miss?) =^~.-^= (I know, I'm Goofy.)

Kermit and Miss Piggy were NEVER a couple! Miss Piggy always had a crush on Kermit, but he never returned the feelings except as a part in a movie (like Muppet Treasure Island).

Oh the horror! Miss Piggy and Kermit are KAPUT?!! WHAT is the world coming to???

These wrecks are.... gawdawful... especially the Biology class frog. Poor thing. Thank goodness for CAKEWRECKS! Too funny! meo

Number four kind of looks like a green Q*bert

August 13, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterRachel

Did the 8th picture make anyone else relive that scene in Weird Science where Chet turns into that lump of slime?

August 13, 2015 | Unregistered Commenterkntate31

The second one is SO cute! I'd take him home in a minute.

The fifth one is bringing back memories of college biology, where my partner and I earned 10 extra credit points for the best brain dissection of our fetal pig. Ah, memories. . . . and formaldehyde. . . .

I could hear Miss Piggy screaming bloody murder and hearing the computer being destroyed with a lethal Karate Pork Chop to the monitor screen right now!😄😄😄

@Rachel I know! At first I thought it was a green dog eating ribbon, then a Q(bert, then I realized that red thing was a tongue & that it was a frog.

#5 is kind of charming in its own way. A creative use of those super skinny candles.

#6 Looks like he's got some serious industrial-chemical induced mutation there.

#8 "Pick me up, and I promise I won't pee on you." As a compulsive frog/toad catcher I can tell you, that's a lie; they always pee on you.

#9 Sadly, this is the most appetizing cake in this post by far.

Kntate31 -- YES!!! That's exactly what I was thinking when i saw it! :)

August 13, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterCineb

I kinda like dissection cake O_o the others look like mutant frogs from the underworld

August 13, 2015 | Unregistered Commentermindy1

@kntate31: No, but I LOVE that scene! ("Uh...hey, dudes!" *skinny arm waves*) Before I read the "official" commentary, my brain filled in the blank based on the prior photo/commentary. Reading: "How do you feel about tadpoles?" *scroll scroll* Brain: "How do you feel about *bleep*?" Mud wrestling! That's what my brain was saying! I swear! "How do you feel about mud wrestling?"

It is a sad day when the best cake decoration is a dissected frog.

I have seen enough to know I have seen too much.

August 13, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterJust Andrea

Barbie and Ken got back together and he doesn't even have a... well, you know. If they can get back together, Piggy and Kermit certainly can.

August 13, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterSuBee

Piggy shrugs, says,"A pig's gotta do what a pig's gotta do," then devours all of these wrecks.

August 13, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterLuLu

Ah, well. There goes the long cherished belief that Yoda was the distant offspring of a pig and frog.

August 13, 2015 | Unregistered Commentermsyendor

I saw a commericial The Muppet Show" is coming back to prime time TV this Sept! Cant wait!

August 13, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterNetasha

@SuBee: Right you are! Little girls are the only ones having any fun with EITHER of those two,wouldn't you say? (And Barbie doesn't have her own "well, you know" either!.)

August 13, 2015 | Unregistered Commentersendingtheclowns

Guess Kermit isn't looking so bad now, is he?

August 14, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterStephanie

Hilarious especially the frog dissection one. Ewwwwww. Whoever ordered that probably won't be eating it once they see it lol.

August 14, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterArlene Marie

The dissection one is giving me flashbacks to high school biology, and not in a good way. Please take Kermie back, Miss Piggy!

August 14, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterChicago

My cats looked alarmed as I kept saying "Oh", "OH", "OH!", OH!!!", etc. while scrolling through these.

And I'm with whoever said it's a sad day when the best looking decorating job was a dissected frog.

August 14, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterMary Kay

Frogged didn't quite make it across the road. And the dissected one is great!
