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? ;)

Cakes decorated with smeared silly string

Bakers make some of the wreckiest things!


Is that a tongue sticking out of that poodle?

 Were they attempting to make ersatz noodles?

"Congradulations" with Doritos rings

Bakers make some of the wreckiest things!


Plumber's jeans that don't quite cover their "assets"

Creepy-faced smiley with too-thick eyelashes

Harry and Gollum and wands holding rings

 Bakers make some of the wreckiest things!


Though these dogs might

Be all frosting

 Though these cakes are bad!

I simply remember these wreckiest things

And then I just can't

Feel sad! ♪

That "plumbers' jeans cake" illustrates what Springsteen's "Born in the USA" album cover would look like if Bruce Springsteen aged like an average American man.

Frow-o-o-o Phunder Road, Frow Phunder Road, Frow Phunder Road.
Lyin’ out there like dead poodles in the sun.
That nosey witch, we’ll escape it if we run.
Frow o-o-o Phunder Road.
Butt crack, big lash Phunder Road!

Thanks for the ear worm Sharyn -- there are worse songs to have stuck in my head.

You really rock the song parady, keep up the great work!

Thank you and Bravo Sharyn! I don't even mind it that you have now caused this song (your version) to stick in my head which I'm sure will be all day. Love it! Especially after digging out of 2 feet of snow yesterday to make it into work today! Luv luv luv my daily dose of Cakewrecks!

Well, Darn that song is going to be stuck in my head all day... Perfect though...

I can die happy now that I know that spearing green bagels with a baseball bat is a sanctioned sport.

Frow Phunder Road? Is that some misspelled German/French woman? You know, Frau Phunderaux.

5th offering: I think this could be a novel (and quite interesting) way of disguising an actual crime scene in a hurry. Just stuff the evidence in a "to go" container, and let the customer solve the mystery ...with a nice Chianti.

5th wreck = EVISCERATION. Said cake would be perfect for an EMT/Medic Class example. For the wreckies out Evisceration is when we find the patient with trauma to the abdominal area, where the internal organs are OUTSIDE the body". And what don't you do if we find that? Class? DO NOT PUSH THEM BACK IN. (truth). What else don't you do? Don't go to your local so-called professional baker and ask for whatever this person asked for, cuz you'll be getting an evisceration and a re-visit from the lunch you just hurked up.

Bahahahahaha@Suebee XD XD these cakes are a travesty, how DARE those bakers call themselves professionals?!?!?!?!?

Congratulationes on a phonderful pwost! Hilarious!

I kinda like the white doggie cakes (but not the one with black eyebrows in the foreground), but then again I like frosting better than cake, so there ya go.

And, I have a different earworm stuck in my head than the rest of you -- for some reason the theme from Nat'l Lampoon's Vacation is stuck in my head..."Holiday Roaaaaaaddd..."

about those ersatz noodles- was that cupcake cake dropped? What a mess!

March 15, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterChicago

I pray that I never am invited to a party where the cake is shaped like a plumber's hind quarters. There is no way I could bring myself to eat butt cake. Thanks for my everyday dose of laughter.

"You boozed less this month" XD XD That must be the cake for me.

March 15, 2017 | Unregistered Commenteramanda

This was just what I needed to relieve my electionday stress 😃 and the song is stuck in my head aswell, haha dumdumdumdum dumdumdumdum dumdumdumdumduuum

This has changed AC/DC's 'Thunderstruck' for the better. Na-na-na-na-na ... Phunderstruck!
It has, however, messed up Bohemian Rhapsody. Phunderbolts and lightning, very very phwightening.

I have a hard time calling the plumber one a wreck because it's spot on, if not a bit cheeky. Looks like they gave the customer what they ass'd for.

March 15, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterNana

If I haven't said it before, I say it now: I love you, Jen.

March 16, 2017 | Unregistered Commenterdoodlebug

Yay! This time I recognize the song and I don't need it explained to me! Joy! I even knew how to sing the rhythm of the song!

March 16, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterNathan R.

The first white doggie has his tongue out because the red ribbons are on way too tight. See, he's even lost control of his bladder.

March 16, 2017 | Unregistered Commenterjeliecam

Wait, so how did the person decorating cake #2 manage to spell "Wojtek" correctly? Go figure.

March 16, 2017 | Unregistered Commenterhyphen8

After all is said and done I think the little hearts on the boozed less cake are the ultimate in caring compassion. Yeah. >eye roll<
Maybe they were on the order sheet? Or maybe the wreckerator felt bad for the cake recipient (or felt solidarity) and expressed it through the tiny hearts of compassion dotting the I and finishing the exclamation mark. Either way, new heights!

Thank you for the warning about not drinking coffee this time!

March 16, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterKyle

Well those uh noodles look like something horrible fell on top of them and refused to leave. So they all died. Lol my brain is weird tonight due to cough meds. I will blame the wreckerators too.

March 17, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterArlene Marie

I think that puppy with the tongue is Norbert! 🐶
