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? ;)

News Bites 5/19

And now, weird headlines.
Illustrated with cake.


"Crocodile Dundeeeek! Sharp-toothed reptile bites Australian man's TESTICLE."

And you should have seen the look on the GUY.


"School For Strippers Shut Down After Neighbors Complain"

I guess they never heard Amber's heartwarming backstory.


"Dog Driving Tractor Causes Ruff Traffic Jam"



"Man Sneezes Out Small Plastic Toy Lodged In His Nose For 44 Years"

Think he was a decorator?


"Baby Starts Crying In University Lecture, So Professor Responds In Best Way Possible"

Just kidding. He actually did this.


"McDonald's unveils new Hamburglar after 'sexy' makeover - but not everyone thinks he's tasty."


Waaaiiit for iiit....

"Man Sneezes Out Small Plastic Toy Lodged In His Nose For 44 Years"
That is possibly your best caption-to-go-with-a-cake EVEH. Or at least in 2015
Well done.

You cannot beat reality for absurdity XD

The new Hamburglar is nervous-making. My take is, why would you want to take your child to a restaurant (I use the term loosely) where the mascot is an overt thief & looks like he hungers for more than burgers?

Apart from the fact that his head is a little off, the crocodile is rather cute.
But the poor puppy… no wonder he is laying on top of his houseΒ : he could never get inside, with the entrance blocked with a tar wall.

Is Hamburger-Head supposed to be scary? It's cracking me up!
Well played.

You need links for every story! Not everyone will believe they're actual headlines! (I do!)

Please tell me #3 isn't supposed to be Snoopy! That is just too sad for words.

So much awesomeness in one post! The cakes and Jen's commentary are hysterical. Clicking on the headlines brings even more hilarity. In the first one about the croc, they refer to the guy's personal region as his "wedding tackle". I'll be giggling about that the rest of the day. Cheers!

Haha! Don't overestimate the gullibility of some headline readers. Some "Enquirer"-ing minds need little more than gossip and gore. It sells! To some!! Oh--and I "read" this as "News (really) Bites"!

Amber: I was just about to ask if #3 is supposed to be a Pug. Either way, I give it a great big "what the i dont even".

I'm with @Athena -- I thought the crocodile cake was kinda cute. However, I am naming him Peter.

Jen and John, you should sell stain removal pens on your website. "Fries with that?" ROFL. Yet another blouse with coffee stains down the front.

Bwhahahahhaha! Hilarious. I loved this post lol. Hamburgler just about made me choke to death laughing so hard. Lol.

The alligator is the cutest CCC I have ever seen on this site. I would be delighted to serve it to my male and female friends.

Dundeeeek is the perfect name for that little guy! I'm going to laugh every time I look at him, and I plan to come back to this post many times to do just that. =-)

All the others are hilarious too! Love the baby - in a what-the-frosting-were-they-thinking kind of way.

The old-style Hamburglar scared me to screams as a kid - the new one's not much better. I'll pass on his fries, thank you!

The crocodile CCC reminds me of some sort of demented rosary.
