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? ;)

Christmas Cheer

[waving pom-poms]

[hip sashay]
Uh-huh, uh-huh, UH-HUH!

"Wait, we mean G!"


Got any extra Ls?

"Ecky ecky ecky pakang ZOOM boing erumferzerserestibleser... "
[trails off into confused mumbles]

[forward somersault into full leg split]

Go marry, Go marry! Go! Go! Go marry!

[collapses into chair]

Ok, gang, take five.

I think my eyes are bleeding.

Well, no matter HOW you spell it, have a Merry Christmas, everyone!


Thanks to Abby, Jennifer S., Susan R., Christopher F., Kerri P., Catherine P., Jessica F., Kae B., Mel A., and George for spelling it out for us.

And a Hoppy Marry X-Mass to you all at Cake Wrecks, too!

The "Merry / Z-Merry cake seems like some sort of Physics matter/amtimatter thing.

The bakers must be under some kind of curse. It's like someone put a mis-spell on them.

Merry Christmas, everyone!

Hey Jen! I follow Epbot, and I know you like Hamilton. Eclipse 6 made this awesome parody about Rudolph, and you should totally check it out. It's called Hamildolph, and you should totally find it on Youtube. Merry Christmas!

Are those prunes in a ball of mashed potatoes?

Mery Cristmax to you both as well and thanks for all the laughs throughout the year.

Prunes are ALWAYS an EXCELLENT choice for the eyes and mouth on a Creepy Decapitated Snowman cake.

Is it me or does X-max sound like a failed marketing strategy from the 90's?

Poor Frosty the Pruneman appears to be weeping Tammy Faye Bakker style. Not that I can blame him!
