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? ;)

PARENTAL NOTE: Best keep the little ones away today. I think this is mostly safe for work, though. Mostly. [evil grin]


Some of my favorite new submissions this week:

I'm sensing there's a story here:

Just me?


And I kinda love how this bakery advertises that they're 50 years old - so mature! so established! - RIGHT NEXT to their poop cakes:

Anyone else immediately "go" to this?

We all are, Danny. WE ALL ARE.

(Also, can we talk about how intentional poop cakes don't look NEARLY as sh*tty as the unintentional ones? No? Allllllrighty then.)


Bakers, minions, makers and binions - we've been through this. Right? I mean, I thought I was *very* clear last time. Apparently this needs repeating, though, so here goes.

Ahem hem hem.


Buck up, it's gonna be a bum-py ride.

I'm starting to think you guys are missing the point on purpose, just so I'll write more of my awesome "horny" puns. And they are awesome. But still. Cut it out.


And speaking of things that are happy to see you, here's the one kind of troll you WANT on the internet:

(Tutorial here)


...aaaand here's how a baker trolls a Troll cake:



Oh dear.

Is the first one a Mothers' Day Cake?

Can you PROVE real unicorns don't have dongs on their heads? No? I didn't think so. ;-}

Finally -- a baker who ADMITS their brown frosting looks like poop!!

April 21, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterJodi

So, the edible hair is thicker than usual cotton candy, and I'm all for that! I love cotton candy so much I even have the perfume version.( It even smells "warm"!)
And, would someone PLEASE snap that dang dong (the witch is dead) OFF the poor little pony's head??? The cake doesn't look happy, and Sally won't be later, when the pictures are flung around all over and she's, like, a TEEN, and stuff.... GAH.

I think the first cake was offered free of charge at the end of a diner's less than happy visit to a Chipotle restaurant. It came from their waitress. ;-/

Considering that unicorn cake is for a 30th birthday that "horn" might very well be intentional ;)

It's hilarious that the 'poop' cake looks nothing like poop (well, not from a healthy person)! I LOVE the good example Troll cake, but would be too terrified to ask for one (though maybe we could get a whole group of wrecks)...

And Under the unicorn Horn a colorful arrangement of condoms.

April 21, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterZemalexe

Omg! It IS for an adult! I read it all too fast! Thanks, Annette! I feel better, now. I think!

April 21, 2017 | Unregistered Commentersendingtheclowns

The first cake is a person being a jerk to a rude customer but the rest? LOL!

April 21, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterNathan R.

I agree with Annette on that unicorn cake.

Actually, I thought the poop pile cake was one really long intestine. (My hubby is going for a colonoscopy next week, which is probably why i saw it in that light.)

However, that fly is totally grossing me out, unless, of course, it is a Marzipan fly, coated with a lovely chocolate fondant. In that is totally grossing me out.

BTW, @sendingtheclowns, your parenthetical comment after "dang dong" was hilarious. I am grateful I wasn't drinking coffee at that moment.

Am I the only one that finds decapitated heads on top of regular cakes creepy?
Also, I have an odd feeling that was someone asking for a cake from a grocery store when they should have gone to a more specialty cake shop that does actual custom work.
My oh my at the unicorn cake! I've been seeing nsfw versions all the time online. I feel like many seem not realize you gotta make a POINT for the horns.

There is a very popular emoji. It is a pile of brown stuff with eyes. My niece has a pillow in this ... design ... and she is the envy of her cousins. (They skype to each other.) Emoji cakes are coming to a bakery near you. Run away!

April 21, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterMJS

Oh that uni-"horn" cake -- so close, yet soooooo far! Oy!

April 21, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterZippy

Oh man the price tag on the poop pile alone made me shriek in terror lol. Wow. Just wow.

April 22, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterArlene Marie

So, I stumbled across Cake Wrecks back in 2008. I lurked for a long time, and then I started posting occasionally... (where are Craig and Haiku Joy these days?) And we haven't had an Epcot post in a long time (that's probably a good thing for Jen and THoJ). And you would think after all this time I would learn not be eating or drinking when I come here. But no. *sighs and goes to clean up the keyboard*

April 22, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterDegera

Yeah, that poop cake doesn't look nearly poopy enough. Come on wreckenators, put some effort in!

April 22, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterSweetyThing

How is it that the one time a baker actually tries to make a cake that looks like poop, it looks nothing like poop? I mean, it's clearly not hard to make a poop cake, every tenth cake featured on this blog is an accidental poop cake!

Somebody try this please: Order a cake with butterflies that look like poop, misspellings and sperm balloons. By this logic you should end up with a beautiful cake for a child's birthday party. We may have cracked the code here.

Is that toilet paper on top of the poop pile?

April 22, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterRoxy Random

At least they call it what it is... a pile of poop.

April 22, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterMeridianMama

The untroll cake is going to give me nightmares! Yikes!
