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? ;)

Cake lovers, ARE YOU READY TO ROCK?!

'Cuz today we're getting all the bands back together... in cake form.

And by "all the bands" I mean some of the bands that happen to have amazing tribute cakes.

So hold those lighters high, my friends - in case some of these come with candles.


The Rolling Stones:

(By Sugar Rush Cakes)

You CAN get satisfaction, provided the birthday girl shares.


Pink Floyd:

(By Yummies)

We don't need no thought control... but we *could* use another slice, thanks.



(By Un Jeu d'Enfant)

John tells me I can't include Bjork in this list because she's not classic rock, but I like the cake, John, so there.


For the fan who can't choose just ONE group:

(By Gian Paolo Panizzolo)


Also not classic rock, but ABBA's still a classic in my book:

(By The Designer Cake Company)

♪ Young and sweet, only buttercream! ♫

(Eh? EH??)
(Of course, this cake is also fondant, so that's really messing with my rhyme.)


Bon Jovi:

(By Pink Cake Box)

I'm all about that hair. :D


The Beatles:

(By Marzia Caruso Cake Design)

I bet this took more than a hard day's night.


Guns N' Roses:

(By Kupkake Tree)

And this one took plenty of patience.



(By Just for the Cake of It)

And this? This took the baker all night long.



(By Elisabeth Palatiello)

Sure to make you smile all night and party every day!


And last but never least:

David Bowie:

(By Laura Ally)

Sweet Ziggy Stardust, you will be missed.

(Though to me, you'll always be the Goblin King who makes the world fall down.)


Happy Sunday, everybody!

I love all of these! I especially love that adults can have fun cakes too!

Shedding a silent tear over that last cake. He will be missed, indeed.

David Bowie's probably freaking the crap out of God right now. RIP

January 17, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterTheCreepyTribble

Still sad about Bowie...

January 17, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterSheila

That Beatles cake is FAB!

January 17, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterLee

Yep.. Goblin King for me, too. His passing made part of the world fall down. It's such a shame some of the best (and nicest) people are leaving us.

January 17, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterVesi

Wow, that David Bowie cake is amazing - especially the hair!!

Love these cakes! Beatles cake baker did a terrific job on the likenesses.

Birthday boy Ethan probably understands AC/DC's lyrics as a thirteen-year-old in the Internet Era better than I would have when I was thirteen in the Pleistocene Era. Although I did dream of "American thighs" then...

What, no Cake cake?

January 17, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterSuBee

Two Guns and Roses and NO Grateful Dead? A quick image search of Grateful Dead cakes yielded some really nice ones (and some wrecks)

January 17, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterJoJo

All gorgeous. Especially that Bowie cake.

January 17, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterAmy H.

Yes, the Goblin King. He was creepily beautiful and magnetic. Virtual hugs to Iman.

January 17, 2016 | Unregistered Commenterdoodlebug

Björk. An underutilized cake topper.

January 17, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterBrooke

The ACDC cake is even more awesome when you realize it was for a thirteen year old. THAT kid is going places.

January 17, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterTheCreepyTribble

Kurt Cobain would be spinning in his grave if he saw that Nirvana and Guns 'n Roses were sharing space on the same cake.

January 17, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterDave

My sister made the Bowie cake! I've seen it in person and it's seriously awesome. So much skill.

January 17, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterAmy C

Are the disco ball & tambourine edible?!

January 17, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterRJ

I love the ABBA cake! Can't say the same about the Bon Jovi one, though. Who would want to eat the piece with chest hair? Bleh.

January 17, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterKerrikoala

Oh my was so Fab and Groove my favorite S.S Post till now Jenn, As a Beatle fan i'm not able to eat the Beatles cake my lord is a sin. So sad that anyone thought in a Jefferson Airplane Cake you know with a white rabbit with pills in his hands: One Want makes you larger and the one makes you small but the whole cake is a trip.

January 18, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterEly

These are all fantastic....except I get a Minion vibe from Bon Jovi. Is it just me?

January 18, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterCarly

Now we've lost Glenn Frey too; 2016 officially stinks!

These cakes are amazing, by the way.

Yay! Kiss and ABBA cakes, If a combination tribute band ever needed to be created it would cover Kiss and ABBA songs and combine both of the fashion styles. They would be called ABBA-Kiss.
Perhaps they could even have a background cameo if there is another made-for-TV Kiss movie: former Kiss members Vinnie Vincent and the original cat-man team up with Bjork and Lady GaGa to collect tribute bands to power some nefarious Kiss-army related machine beneath the haunted roller disco? Maybe the ghost of Ziggy Stardust could give sage advice in the form of a rock anthem.
Dain it SyFy channel, stop making shark and zombie drivel and give me a movie I want to see!!!
