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? ;)

This Wedding Cake Is So Bad It's Freaking Adorable

[running in] YOU GUYS.

I just found my new favorite wedding wreck.

 

It's... LOOKING... at me.

And once you see the face, that's all you'll see. The little puffball bowtie! The grumpy frown! The parade of heart butts on the bottom! It's... [wiping eyes]... It's just so beautiful.

Now I want Mr. Frumpy Puffball Butts to star in his own superhero comic. I want him to host a reality show where he crashes wedding receptions and critiques the hors d'oeuvres in a snooty British accent. I want a tag-team podcast with the Sorting Hat where they discuss current affairs. I want action figures, fuzzy pillows, coffee mugs!!

No no, wait, I've got it:

MR. FRUMPY PUFFBALL BUTTS FOR PRESIDENT.

YASSSSSS.

[pause followed by hushed whispers]

Er, OK, John says I need to go have a little lie-down now, but I'm telling you guys, I think I'm on to something here. Go ahead and share your best candidate slogan for Frumpy Puffball Butts in the comments, while I brainstorm lawn signs.

 

And thanks to Shannon C. for finding a campaign we can really sink our teeth into.

Make America Bake Again!

October 20, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterSharyn

MR.FRUMPY PUFFBALL BUTTS FOR PRESIDENT. Your no nonsense, slightly sugar-coated candidate. NO 'IF'S, AND'S, BUT DEFINITELY BUTTS ABOUT IT!

October 20, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterCookiemama

I've seen ads on TV - I think from Progressive (not with Flo) with an animated insurance policy talking about how he saves people so much money. When I saw the top of that cake it reminded me of the animated policy. The bottom is not that bad.

I'm Nuts for Butts!

Oh wait. That lawn sign would probably land me on a List somewhere.

Wow, he really does look like the sorting hat! (And, uh...how did we decide that he's a....he?)

October 20, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterAngie

"Can't check the wreck!"

October 20, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterCakuelure

This may be my favorite post ever. Great work Jen.

@Elisabeth, that's my kind of slogan. Where do I vote?

The Cake doesn't lie!

October 20, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterPenny M

Angie, I think you're on to something. That baby pink piping, the poofy little bow. It's 'Ms.' Frumpy Pufball Butts thanknyou very much.

October 20, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterZeenia

It's just a slit in the icing and there are so many pink icing blobs that some of them were bound to suggest eyes.

"I'm with confectioner."

October 20, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterAidan

I'm with Mr. Frumpy Puffball Butts!

October 20, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterJulie

What's blowing my mind is that this appears to be the front of the cake, since that's where the one little puffball of tulle is. If that's the case, why did they decide to make the front of the cake be where the seam is on the bottom tier? <headdesk>

October 20, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterMelanie

Reminiscent of Cakey Cake the cake from outer space. Perhaps that could be Mr. Frumpy Puffball's running mate or sidekick, depending on career choice. And yes, I land on the Mr. side. He likes pink and there's nothing wrong with that.
Unassuming cake by day; snide commentator of weddings by night.

October 20, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterSteph

Ok, we need a stuffy (stuffed toy) of this cake. He's so cute, with his silly frown!

October 20, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterStephanie

If you look at the cake long enough, Mr. Puffball begins to look like a certain presidential candidate especially after the addition of the flags. ;)

October 20, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterEselle

They actually look like little hairless jewel sacks to me if you catch my drift. And now Jen you can't unsee that.

October 20, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterKatrina

Mr. Frumpy Puffball Butts - My Solutions are not half baked!

October 20, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterScott

I like Frumpy Puffball Butts and I cannot lie
You other voters can't deny
When a baker walks in with a cake with a puffy little ball
And frown upon its face
You get hung . . . ry
And you wanna get out a fork
'Cause you know that cake is wrecked
Deep in my brain I'm thinking
That the other candidates are stinking
Oh Frumpy I wanna vote for you!

October 20, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterLuLu

With Butts you'll never have a pussy scandal.

October 20, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterCarolyn
