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? ;)

9 Of The World's Dirtiest Cakes

Baaaaby, now that I've found you I'll just LET you mold:



 With Christmas stuff around you

 And UGLY bows:


Barbie, EVEN though

You're so creepy


 So dang creeeeee-pay!!





Without a sound you scream, "I'll CUT you, bro!"


Dead bugs and dirt around you:

This is a WHOLE new low

 It's ironic, though;

 You need cleaning...



Thanks to Leah B., Carrie S., Diana K., Juliana B., Ann P., Ken D., Anony M., Jessica, & Melissa P. for the window pain. [shudder]

WOW! Great crop of penicillin on the "strawberries" on the second last one.
Did you know that the mould in Roquefort cheese is actually green bread mould, and it is good for you?
(But, I'll pass, thank you.)

I think I remember that Christmas stuff cake from "Psycho." Anthony Perkins gives a slice to Janet Leigh right before she runs to the shower and kills herself.

Does anyone else think the "tall" doll cake in the long dress is reminiscent of Lizzie Borden somehow? That was my first thought. Maybe I could get one of those in red velvet cake with raspberry jam filling?

Are these people actually still in business? Cuz - eeeewww.

Looking at the baby bride doll, my mouth watered as I imagined it all made out of SOLID ICING!!! 8-d

Are there rodent poison pellets on the third one with the cupcakes? Come back tomorrow and see the dead mice in the display case with the cakes. Mmmm.... protein.

I don't care HOW clean they are, I'm not eating any cake that was frosted in Tide. @Shirley:Yes-very similar to bleu cheese, and Gorgonzola, too. (I love them!) @ Subee: That's how I remember it, too....She probably got sick of his wanting to call her "Mother". =^-.-^=

The third one looks like a mouse has been leaving calling cards under the cupcakes.

Ew! Ew! Ew! I have always been creeped out by baby dolls, I think ever since I was a baby myself. That baby doll wedding dress cake is going to be the subject of my nightmares tonight. As will that first cake. It looks like it was left out in the rain, ala that MacArthur Park song!!

Is it just me, or do some of the doll cakes here remind you of Miss Havisham from Great Expectations?

April 20, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterCathy

Maybe it's the (less-than-fresh) color schemes, but these look like the cake equivalent of those creepy Victorian "hair wreath" memorials that people used to make. (And if you don't know what those are ... )

Dang, I can't tell what tune this is.

[Editor's note- Hey Classic! Can I call you Classic? :) The song is a classic, Classic. It's called "Baby, Now That I've Found You" and it was originally by The Foundations. Great song. You can check it out here and I'm sure you've heard it at some point. Btw, thanks for being a great commentor and have an awesome day! - john (the hubby of Classic Jen)]

None of those cakes would be out of place in Norman Bates's mother's room.

April 20, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterGinger

Oh, gross. I can't even process this. Struggling to keep my lunch down. Oh, WHY did I click on this, LOL.

April 20, 2016 | Unregistered Commentermiladyfair

I see there's a huge crack in the child bride cake - and I'm exceedingly grateful for it because when she starts coming after me at least she won't get very far until she breaks in half! O_o

The Barbie cake looks like it's covered in dried worms from the sidewalk after a rain storm

April 20, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterKayakKween

Why is Creepy Barbie's "dress" decorated with earthworms? I've never seen Debutante Helminthologist Barbie.

April 20, 2016 | Unregistered Commenters.marie

Is that doll one floating in air?

April 20, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterGayle

I love the Dead Fly on the strawberries one. Just screams We're a clean healthy shop :D

April 20, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterPGP_Protector

Finals week is coming up and I can relate DEEPLY with those cakes.

April 20, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterSarah Beth

Ewww, just plain ewwww. Those are some extremely nasty cakes!

Cake #5: It leaps, it creeps,
It glides and slides across the floor ...
Fondant is coming to get yooooooo!

Oh Jen, my bad start to the day was cured by this! Thank you for always cheering me up. CakeWrecks forever!

April 20, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterIzzy

I kept trying to force the commentary between cakes into the tune of "Eeew That Smell!" Cancha smell that smell? Because I almost can -- those cakes are rank!

April 21, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterDavis

I do not think that is a baby doll bride, I think it is a girl celebrating her quinceanera - she has been celebrating a LONG time.

April 21, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterAlison in Indiana

Those WERE strawberries on the thank you cake? Or was that comment suppose to funny? Also the filth built up in the half rattle is the worst thing, is that beach sand, dust, cremations? Aaaaaaaah!

April 21, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterAlex Powell

Trust a wreckerator to make the doll in the cake look flat chested and covered in what looks like worms. Blech! What on earth possessed them to do this?
