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? ;)

Ya Think?

One faces many questions in today's bakeries. But one in particular most of all:

"What's this?"


"They're puppy dogs, of course!"


"Someone order a Star Trek cake?"


"That? That's a cheerleader, hon. See the pom-poms?"




And last, but never least:

"Believe it or not, it's supposed to be bacon."

Yep. Our thoughts exactly.

Puppy dogs? Sure, crossbred with those google-eyed goldfish.
I just Marvel that these bakers can cross so many genre with their sci-fi cakes.
Cheerleader? That's a rather crappy rendition, wouldn't you say?
You've heard the phrase, "We found him under a rock?" That might be true in this case.
Bacon? Don't see it. Tree branches? Possibly. Eyebrows stacked one on top of the other? Maybe. Something that should have been flushed? Most likely.

Loved the expressions after the cakes. Those were classic, especially the baby..

Those "puppy dogs" look like the van with breasts from the final episode of "The IT Crowd!"

I think the cheerleader needs to shave her armpits--she's growing astroturf.

My dog has a crooked nose like that one up there, it's caused by something pressing on a nerve that runs along the side of the dog's head and by his ear. Thankfully, whatever is pressing on the nerve in our dog is not a cancerous tumor. He lost control of his 3rd eyelid for a while too, but that's gotten better.

Wasn't that cheerleader in some TV show some years ago? Let's get Sean Connery to do the voiceover: "shave the cheerleader, shave the world".

That last one looks like what happens when a steamroller is Tailgating behind a buggy pulled by two horses. I grew up in the country, and I've seen it often enough.

Oh boy! Puppy dogs made of icing! My favourite!

I'm confused by the dog cakes. If those are supposed to be eyes, then where are their snouts? If they're supposed to be snouts, then why are there two of them and why are their noses blue? Its like the decorator has never actually seen a dog. Poor decorator.

BAhahahaha OMG Just looked at the first one and made EXACTLY the dog face DYE ING

Is that a gingerbread cheerleader? It looks very flat and very uh hairy to say the least lol. I am still giggling at the Star Trek cake..

The first cakes are the rear views of two sexually frustrated male dogs.

That is absolutely a turd in green and white icing no matter what anyone tells you.

What is under the Green Bay cheerleader’s costume? Is that... oh, never mind. Yuck!
