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? ;)

Because Everything's Better With The Muppets

It's time to bake the music,


It's time to write the slights!


It's time to make some carnage,

At the bakery tonight!

[bahdum dum dum]

It's time to put on makeup,


It's time to dress up right,

By the incredibly talented Say it with Cake!


It's time that we departed,


It's not for the fainthearted,


Oh boy I bet that smarted!

On the least sensational,


This is what we call the Cake Wrecks Shooooooow!



Thanks to Brianna S., Kate, Stacy F., Vanessa M., Shakera, & Anna I. for the ear worm. And also for getting the Muppet song stuck in our heads.

And in that one instant, Melman realized there was more to Gloria than he'd ever dared to hope.

I very nearly spit coffee on my monitor at the hippo cake, lol. And now I have the Muppet Show theme stuck in my head, thank you very much.

May 10, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterCatmania

BRAVO JEN! I love your twist on the Muppet Show theme song. All we need now is a gif of Statler and Waldorf giving their review from their balcony seats. Imagine what they would say about these lovely wrecks! Don't mind the ear worm I now have at all, not at all I tell ya.

Nicely done! I'll be singing that all day. Singing and picturing a wall-eyed geisha. >shudder<

May 10, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterJake & Me

Geisha lady looks like she needs a chiropractic adjustment. What on earth is the last one? I can't figure it out.

May 10, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterChicago

In all fairness, I'm kind of digging the dominatrix hippo.

May 10, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterMiss Paper

OK. I'll bite What is that last "thing" supposed to be?

May 10, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterLady Anne

I have to admit, "smelly pirate hooker" made me snort water out of my nose. Since it's allergy season, I suppose my sinuses say thank you?

May 10, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterNagzilla

Smelly pirate hookers and dominatrix hippos. Two things I never associated with cake or the Muppets until now.

May 10, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterClassic Steve

1. What the wreck happened to the melon cake? Animal got a hold of it?

2. That Trisha is scared of something. Miss Piggy's wrath? (I don't blame her.)

3. Miss hippo is perfect, why it's a wreck?

4. Let me guess...Fuzzy was driving the blue car. Right?

5. Can the foot be archived under the anatomical disaster section?

Okay, the smelly pirate hooker cookie is (hopefully!) a reference from Anchorman: Legend of Ron Burgandy. If it's not, uh well, I really have no defense for it. That hippo dominatrix is both hilarious and NSFW! But, like Miss Paper, I'm kind of digging it too.

May 10, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterBossyHeifer

Was the third one dropped?

Number Five is a Sunday sweet.

That last melting cake looks like a trombone on top of its case. As a musician (albeit flutist), I'm sooo tempted to link that for my musicians friends to see-except it would probably give them nightmares!

May 10, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterKaren

Bravo to both Nagzilla and Classic Steve! "Smelly Pirate Hooker"... yeah. You don't see or hear about THAT everyday. No how.

For the life of me I can't figure out what the last Wreck is... clarification please. And that Geisha (GAH)... wall eyed and... those creepy eyelashes. There's a whiff of Steven King about that Wreck and no mistake.

I have to say I really like the evil dinosaur

May 10, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterAna

I could be wrong but I think the last one is a trombone? embedded in a chocolate log? hence the PPTHHPTHPFFTHPPPT!!! caption from Jen

May 10, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterMingbee

I think the last one is a trombone. I only know this because my brother in law has an old battered trombone that all the little nieces and nephews play with; it's really beat up and misshapen, much like what appears on that last cake.

May 10, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterKathryn

It's a trombone, right?
I'm not unhappy to have The Muppet Show theme song stuck in my head today!

May 10, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterLinda K

I'm pretty sure I saw the geisha one blink... 😳

May 10, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterKim

Maybe the first cake was made for for Aretha......but she changed her mind.
And then changed it again....
The 2nd one? They're just trying to get on the person's good side.
3: Salad usually comes before dessert. Nothing wrong here.
4: She's set for makeup; what's needed is an optometrist.
5: 1st person: "Who's going to plug her in? 2nd person:" Don't look at ME!"
6: New! Blues Clues, Automotive Edition....?
7: Seen him before, and he's just as charming as ever!
8: ...yick......
9: Pretty sad looking trombone. Must have been playing the blues....might get better tone if it were INSIDE of the coffin.....

The blue car cake reminds me of a SMART car. And it's about the same size as a real one. Ever see one of those things on the road? I half expect a muppet to be driving it.

May 10, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterNeeta

the Godzilla cake is bad@$$ tho. My husband would love it.

May 10, 2017 | Unregistered Commentergothchiq

So, um, what is that between the smelly pirate hooker and the eagle-eyed geisha in pain?

May 10, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterVeggieburger

Oh my the hippo cake! That was very well done, though, and very, very amusing. And, I love the Muppets and that theme song. Perfect versing there!

May 10, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterNancy

That's not a geisha, that's Shrek in white face. Right????

May 10, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterAmy

Definitely a trombone...we sell them and repair them...and that one definitely needs repairing.

May 10, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterAndrea R

A) Kermit flail *yaaaaaaay*!!!!
2) (nod to "Mad About You") I think we'd all like to see a Sunday Sweets NSFW edition. That could be epic. Just sayin'. 😉

May 10, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterMovieMom

@Veggieburger, I truly hope I'm wrong, but it looks like Rudolph took a wrong turn somewhere around Greenland. "Sorry, kids, they've canceled Christmas this year..."

May 10, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterNeeta

Is it Smelly Pirate Hooker or Smelly Pinata Hooker? Either way it's a weirdly specific insult. Or something I'm happy not to know anything about.
I would like to know why the trombone got dumped in mud, though. It's no fun cleaning all those pipes out. And brass players always forget to clean the bath after scrubbing their instruments.

May 11, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterAA

Thanks to all who identified the last cake as a "trombone".... I get it now. Sort of.... :-)

May 11, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterMaryO1230

So I want you to know that I actually had the Muppet Show themesong stuck in my head all day after reading this, and then I woke up signing it again this morning, so I tried to get it out of my head but the only song I could think of to take it over was...Rainbow Connection. Thanks for breaking my brain.

May 11, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterCaity

Thanks, @Caity. Now I am singing the "Rainbow Connection" to myself.

May 11, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterNeeta

That last one is literally a sad trombone. Whomp WHOMP.

May 11, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterRocknwreck

Now that I have seen that Hippo I need eye bleach lol. I would love the reaction to the smelly pirate hooker cake lol.

May 12, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterArlene Marie

A trombone!!!! wow. Now I have hippo nightmares.

May 12, 2017 | Unregistered Commentervalarie

What's really sad/scary is that I know where that dominatrix hippo character is from.
It's a movie called "Meet the Feebles" done by multi-Academy Award winning movie maker, Peter Jackson.
The cake is pretty much spot on.
The dominatrix hippo is about the MOST NORMAL AND LEAST DISTURBING part of the movie.

Her sub is actually a cow.
I am not joking.
I once saw a young man covered in piercings, tattoos, scarifications and brandings tell his friend "No, no, don't watch that movie, it's too painful."

May 13, 2017 | Unregistered Commenterfootnotegirl

Yay! Someone else knew the hippo was one of the leading characters in Meet the Feebles! A must see movie.

May 13, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterPerky

"Hey that musical note is actually spelled right!"
"That's the ONLY thing on that CCC that's right!"

May 13, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterNathan R.

The hippo cake looks just a little too similar to a cartoon character I made up and draw, only with a bit more G-rated fashion sense.

I grew up watching and love the Muppet Show, so I've decided never to watch Meet The Feebles, as I may never look at my childhood icons the same way ever again.
