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? ;)

You Pig!

Attention minions raising smaller minions:

Have you ever noticed something... off... about Peppa Pig's nose?

I only ask because I keep getting Peppa Pig cakes over here, and they're surprisingly, er, adult for a kids' cake, if you know what I mean.

Admit it: if you'd never seen Peppa Pig before this would make you spit out your Diet Coke. I mean, what is that lizard doing?


Granted, if you do know what Peppa looks like, that's not too bad.

[sing-song] BUT THISSSS IS!

Flashing Flops Of Fleshy Flaccid Frosting, Batman!

My theory is these bakers see exactly what we see - c'mon, let's call a dong a dong here - but they're so determined to NOT see it that their subconscious takes over, gleefully piping out penises left and right because "WE'RE ALLOWED TO NOW, IT'S A PIG NOSE! WHEEEEEE!"

C'mon, that's basically every 9-year-old boy's dream job.

But still, bakers, at some point you've gone too far.
And that point is riiiiiight around.... here:

Oink oink, motherfluffers.

When Mickey Mouse Turns Into A Real Bozo

Jessie ordered this cute kitty design from her bakery's book:


Her bakery ran out of the printed paper, though, and then I guess also people who know how to decorate cakes:

Yowch. And I don't think that candle placement is helping any, Jessie. Do you have any large house plants instead? Maybe a pinata or two?


Shannon ordered a Minecraft sheet cake, which usually looks something like this:


Instead, she got what appears to be an Oscar-the-Grouch skin carpet on a dirty tile floor:

Double "yowch."


And finally, Jay ordered a true classic: a Mickey Mouse cake like this:


Somehow I think Jay's baker heard "Bozo the Clown," though:


...because THIS IS UNCANNY:

Thanks to Jessie W., Shannon M., & Jay F. for that case of "mouse-taken" identity.

(Yes that pun was tortured and I'm not even sorry.)
