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 Wrecks Gets A Reboot

With all the reboots hitting theaters lately, we here at Cake Wrecks have decided it's time to release our own reboots of beloved classics.

Starting with the oh-so iconic, "I Want Sprinkles!"

This reboot features a modern twist to the classic script, a more relatable color scheme for today's world, and is absolutely, positively guaranteed to ruin your childhood!


Did you love "It A Gril"?
Well, we're bringing it back! Now as:

"I's A Boy!"

And believe me, the new origin story is gonna be a real tier-jerker.


I saved the best for last, though.

Yep, buckle up, minions, because the Naked Mohawk-Baby Carrot Jockeys are getting a reboot.

It's dark.

It's gritty.

It's ripped from the headlines, cut into decorative strips, and modpodged onto a decorative end table.


The Naked Rasta-Wang Sky-Divers

"This time, the vegetable rodeo is going DOWN."


Thanks to Phyllis M., Beverly S., & Sabrina T. for taking one small step for wangs, one giant leap for wang-kind.


Thank you for using our Amazon links to shop! USA, UK, Canada.

I's the b'y that builds the boat
And I's the b'y that sails her
I's the b'y that catches the fish
And brings them home to Liza.

Dear God what ARE those ...... THINGS ..... on that last cake??????
Seriously -- what are they? Well, what are they supposed to be would be the better question. I don't think anyone can top Jen's naked rasta-wang sky-divers.

Naked? I call that skinned!

I's a woman of a certain age and, as such, have lived through many "reboots." Some work, some don't. Some are childhood ruiners, while others simply ruin that one year in middle school when you got your braces off and you really believed the cool kids knew who you were.
These Wreck Wreboots are, for the most part, almost as good as that that time they remade 'Casablanca' but instead of Humphrey Bogart and Claude Rains, it starred Starsky (or maybe Hutch) and that guy who was sleeping with Julie Andrews in "The Princess Diaries." They're not the original but they have their own merits and will soon be forgotten forever...EXCEPT THE LAST ONE!
This is the "Mad Max: Fury Road" of wrecks. You don't want to like it but it's just so damn good. I's a big fan of the Naked Mohawk-Baby Carrot Jockey, (I have a rare Naked Mohawk-Baby Carrot Jockey necklace and I wear it with pride,) but I have room in my heart for the Naked Rasta-Wang Sky-Divers and perhaps, some day, I'll find a Naked Rasta-Wang Sky-Divers bracelet to go with my necklace.

Holy moley Batman - SOMEONE is trying to smack down the iconic VEGGIE RODEO! No way! The Veggie Rodeo will continue to live on in cyber-space looonnggg after all us wreck-o-rater minions are in Wreck Heaven (or the Other Place - depending on your beliefs) and this flimsy Veggie Rodeo "reboot" will slide down the cyber black hole FOR EVAH!! Besides - I think they look like smurfs having an incredibly bad hair day!

Laughing and snorting! MaryO

Oh you've outdone yourself!!

Why didn't I realise the world needed

The Naked Rasta-Wang Sky-Divers, thats it!

August 4, 2016 | Unregistered Commenterdiddleymaz

I'm going to guess that the last one is supposed to be lobsters in a pot, over a very high flame.

August 4, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterBin

Ondřej - Perfect!

August 4, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterSuBee

"Sprinkels," no less. Maybe that's why the decorator got confused: He didn't recognize the word.

August 4, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterClassic Steve

Maybe House Bolton got a hold of the Naked Rasta-Wang Skydivers before we got to see them...They look flayed to me...

August 4, 2016 | Unregistered Commentermiss paper

Oh, my heck.
Jen, you slay me.

August 4, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterMedith

Wreck Wreboots Win!

August 4, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterRebooted

Thanks Jen and John (thoj)! I have been clicking through your link when I buy from Amazon. (Love having another good reason to shop!) How I confirm that this is benefiting you?

August 4, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterDee, just Dee

Is it terrible that I can actually interpret the last one? They are clearly lobsters.... We'll, I'd you squint and pretend it's a 5 yr old art project.

August 4, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterDeva

I'm going with Lobsters in a pot also. Although that's a pretty weird theme for a cake.

August 4, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterAKS

I think Bin called it, if you squint (a LOT) you can kinda see lobsters, or maybe crawfish. Rasta-wang skydivers is more what they look like, though. Good grief...

August 4, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterWendy

I'm fairly certain that the last cake is actually a depiction of Dante's 6th Circle of Hell.

I don't have any idea why anyone would want to make a cake out of that, but there it is.

August 4, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterKimS

Why are puffy lobsters on a cake?

August 4, 2016 | Unregistered Commentermindy1

I knew they would be naked, but THAT"S A LOT MORE NAKED THAN I WAS EXPECTING!

August 4, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterHei

"The Naked Rasta-Wang Sky-Divers"

Dibs on the band name.

August 4, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterJules

Lobsters, huh? I never would have guessed that myself. I guess I can see it, though. Two-tailed miniature dreadlocked lobsters from hell...maybe.

August 4, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterBluebonnet

Jen and John (THOJ), I almost peed my pants at "Naked-Rasta-Wang-Sky Divers". Speaking of peeing, if those are not Naked Rasta Wang Sky Divers, then the baker needs to call his Urologist, 'cuz clearly this is a call for help.

August 4, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterCookiemama

@ Kim S - I AGREE! If it hadn't been so dang early here on the West Coast, I may have tumbled to that too! LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

August 4, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterMaryO1230

All of these are tier-jerkers (ICWYDT).

The naked rasta wang skydivers need their own jewelry. Just sayin'.

August 4, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterBADKarma

"Rasta Wang Skydivers"? Is that in any way related to this "Pokemon Go" I keep hearing about?

August 4, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterJMixx

Pee pee laughing

August 4, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterLizardo

There are some things that cannot be unseen and the Naked Rasta-Wang Sky-Divers would be one of them. Now I need to go look for some brain bleach......

August 4, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterKyle

In the Newfoundland dialect (almost but not quite Irish), it is quite common to hear "I's" rather than "I'm". The song that @Ondrej Vagner quoted is one of their classic sea shanties & sung by Great Big Sea, a band out of Newfoundland (among others). This could very easily be a Newfoundlander cake & exactly what was asked for.

August 4, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterSaraCVT

omg 'tier-jerker' was next level punnage even for you.

August 4, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterLewis B

I missed the apostrophe looking at the second cake and I kinda prefer the robot-like directness of "IS A BOY"

August 4, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterChemSteve

Well those naked rasta-wang skydivers really take the cake. I nearly died laughing at the description of what these appear to be. Now that I see it I cannot unsee them lmao.

August 5, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterArlene Marie

I really have to wonder who has the balls to put that on a cake ...

August 5, 2016 | Unregistered Commenterbrian t

Oh, Jen....I love you. In a non-stalkerish, non-sexuall (and probably boring) way. I'm just off in the corner, admiring your work again.

'm getting tired of all the reboots, actually, but yours are PERFECT. Even the Naked Rasta-Wang Sky-Divers, which are the new standard for their kind. I wonder what you'd get if you asked for those on a cake... :o

August 5, 2016 | Unregistered Commenterhyphen8

Love all of these, although I must admit that before I read your description of the last one, I thought they were some kind of redwood Groots. Your explanation makes much more sense. Hope it turns into a classic in its own wright.

August 8, 2016 | Unregistered Commenterphysicsmom

When I heard 'reboot' I thought of that old cartoon. I'm old....SHUT UP!!!!

August 10, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterNathan R.

Are you sure those are lobsters?? They look suspiciously like the floating dead Sea Monkeys my kids forgot completely about one summer !! :(
