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? ;)

Bear Necessities

Today we celebrate... teddy bears.

But not like that.



After all, who here didn't have a comforting...




...and completely non-creepy bear to snuggle as a kid?



Teddy bears are all about childhood innocence and fun.

So hey, this seems appropriate:

(Before you jump to conclusions, I see nothing dirty here.)

(Unless you consider a rocket-jet of explosive diarrhea "dirty.")


So here's to you, Teddy, with your weird badonk-a-donk:


And your crazy panda/mouse ears:


And those lumps no one wants to talk about:


Now, for old time's sake, let's have one more Story Time with Teddy!

Ahem hem hem.


"Ultimately Maude and Ginger decided to just finish their picnic."

"There was plenty of time to call the coroner later."

Happy National Teddy Bear Day, e'rebody!

Is it wrong I find the last one funny? O_o

Hey look, a poo bear!

#2 the "Comforting" looks like the groundhog from Caddyshack to me. Could they not have at least cleaned off the cake board?

September 9, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterPamtha

I am sure that last cake, which is very well executed, has an entertaining story behind it. I kinda like it!

September 9, 2015 | Unregistered Commentersue

Is it possible to be retroactively scarred for life? I think that just happened...

September 9, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterColin M.

If only the last one used Grateful Dead bears.

September 9, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterClassic Steve

Is it just me, or does the "comforting" one look like the Golgothan from "Dogma"?

September 9, 2015 | Unregistered Commentertina

That first wreck is missing the ears. If it had ears it would be alllll better. Yeah, that's the ticket!

The second wreck looks like a confused beaver.

September 9, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterJodi

Poor little Ashlya, who got an hemorrhoidal bear cake for her birthday.

September 9, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterAthena

The "comforting" one reminds me of Sid from Ice Age. See the teeth?

September 9, 2015 | Unregistered Commentermindy2

I didn't (have a teddy bear, that is).

But I don't think I would've wanted any of these.

September 9, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterSaraCVT

Gotta love how nobody is mentioning the two sets of eyes on the uncomfortable looking first wreck with the dirty board.

Incidentally, my sister once had a bear like the stuffed one at the top. We called it her "teddy in a teddy with titties" because we're immature like that.

September 9, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterMoira

Admittedly, some of the childhood bears and dolls that I have hung on to now resemble these cakes in a very sad way. They still look dear to me, but to others they might cause nightmares.

September 9, 2015 | Unregistered Commenterstaying anon

Haaaaa! Great caption for that last one!

September 9, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterErica

My favorite part of that second picture is that the, um, "bear" seems to be slowly crawling across the board, leaving a snail-like skid mark in its wake.

September 9, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterCavy

The last one is very "The Far Side".

September 9, 2015 | Unregistered Commentermytleboo

The last one just screams the question "Why?". If you enlarge the photo, there appears to be blood oozing from the right arm of the poor bear. Non-fatal wound, if you ask me, but why are the other two ignoring it? What will Ducky and Mr. Palmer discover when they get him to autopsy?

Excuse me, I guess binge-watching NCIS is taking it toll on me.

September 9, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterTriciaL

Maybe the last one is just taking a nap after a nice, filling meal.

September 9, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterLady Anne

Speaking as someone named "Ginger", I plead the Fifth on that last cake.

September 9, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterGinger

I think the skidmarky "comforting" one was done by a baker who'd never seen a teddy bear before and accidentally used a water bear for reference.

September 9, 2015 | Unregistered Commenterjbrecken

The bear with the yellow ruffles and blue flowers for *eyes* had me humming the immortal Beatle song: Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds. I don't know why. ;-) A wink w/a smile. These bear-wrecks are a hoot! meo

September 9, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterMaryO1230

AngelaS - about the "comforting" one, I was thinking the same thing.

September 9, 2015 | Unregistered Commenterchicago

You may see 'nothing dirty' about bear number 5, but I see the work of Vlad the Impaler, and that is beyond dirty.

September 9, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterTachybaptus

That's not Maude and Ginger, that's Wanda, Mary Anne, and Earl.

September 9, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterKatie

Turdy bear.

September 9, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterJoan

I thought the one on a stick looked like a scarecrow. A very demented scarecrow.

September 9, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterApop

Comforting Bear should have 'X's on his eyes and be surrounded by police tape, because it looks like a crime scene...or someone has the trots.

That last one: excellent. Yes, very Far Side, indeed. As intended, I'm sure.

September 9, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterJust Andrea

Perhaps this is why I had a stuffed frog instead of a bear?

September 9, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterCharisse

Maybe Maude and Ginger are just embarrassed that their friend is passed out cold AGAIN so they just carry on with their lunch without saying anymore about it.

September 9, 2015 | Unregistered Commenterpikkewyn

That first cake is a whole different kind of "Poo Bear."

The last cake, and its caption, nearly cst m my kybard... Aw dang, te beverae I spewe as soaed in...

Okay just kidding. It also brought to mind this movie quote: "Earl... Earl... Could you please not poke the dead body with a stick? Thank yoouu!"

September 9, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterJMixx

"There was plenty of time to call the coroner later." hahahaha! Jen, you're so funny! Your commentary on the cakes is always what makes this blog so funny! Keep up the great work of making us all laugh, and thereby making the world a better place!

September 9, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterFlowerGirl

The second wreck is an otter, not a bear. Surprised no one has noticed that..

September 9, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterEpcyclopedia

TriciaL, no need to apologize for binge-watching NCIS. Isn't that what we'd all rather have done today that go to work or whatever else we did?

September 9, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterNobodee Home

And now: a bear with three buttocks.

Monty Python has a quote for everything.

September 10, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterAlice Shortcake

The levitating "poo" bear made me think of this old video.

September 13, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterBrian

I believe the fourth one is wearing lederhosen.

September 13, 2015 | Unregistered Commenteranonymous

Since no one else has made the reference, I guess I'll have to:
