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? ;)

Yay! My picture made it to a post! And one with my favourite Doctor on it too! And Nathan Fillion! My fellow Canadian!

Oh my gosh, I love all the reactions to those! Made my day! Thanks, John :-)

These are great! I have to say the last one is my favorite, but then, I've been in love with David Tennant for most of the last decade, so if you associate him with, well, almost anything, it's a win! And the second to the last one? Hey, at least they have the truth in advertising bit down.

You had me at "ASS BISCUITS". . . =^-.-^=

July 14, 2015 | Unregistered Commentersendingtheclowns

How can they not see it? Have you corrupted our minds Jen?!

July 14, 2015 | Unregistered Commentermindy1

That last one! What the h*ll is that actually supposed to be?! I can't see anything but...ahem, well...what it looks like it wants to be...

July 14, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterECB

YOU KNOW THEY SEE THAT! Especially the British flag, um, pointer? What is that even supposed to be?

July 14, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterAngelaS

The penis carrots look like penises and the Feminine Nether Region cake looks like the Feminine Nether Region. Why don't the Ass Biscuits look like ass? Or biscuits?

July 14, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterSuBee

I'd like to order a dozen ass biscuits, please. I have some "friends" who deserve them.

July 14, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterMiss Paper

Excellent use of gifs, Jon. Each sums up perfectly my feelings about these cakes. *shudder*

I thought the Nathan Fillion reaction was going to be the best......until I got to the Ass Biscuits. OMG, thanks for the laughing tears this morning!

July 14, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterAngie

My first thought was that the carrots are missing their Mohawk-sporting jockeys. Then I decided that they look sort of like fingers, and then as I looked at them more closely ... well ... put it in the category of things that can't be unseen.

The small cake with the Union Jack - what is the base really intended to be?

July 14, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterChicago

I do believe I made each of those expressions, so nice job, john (thoJ).

Ah, SuBee, how I do admire thee. Mwah!

July 14, 2015 | Unregistered Commenterlisadh

Hey, don't knock that "Sweetie" uterus cake! That's better than most pregnancy/baby shower cakes we've seen recently at all!

July 14, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterWhirlwitch

Thank you thank you thank you for the gifs. Made my day!

July 14, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterRachel

Second one looks like a Leprechaun Circle ... um, er..., never mind.

July 14, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterOld Marshmallow

You win the internet for gif usage! Brilliant! :)

(btw, this site totally gets me through afternoons at work! thanks!!)

July 14, 2015 | Unregistered Commentereridun

What exactly are ass biscuits and how do you get/make them? Asking for a friend...

July 14, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterIffanytay

Fillion, Ackles, Day, and Tennant! Best Day Ever! Thanks for the Nerd Lift!

July 14, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterMartinique

What is that last one supposed to be? I'm so confused.

July 14, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterDegera

Hello, Sweetie, indeed!

July 14, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterAlex

I believe that the Union Jack cake could be a Spotted Dick, as I see a few dots on it. Or maybe it's just standing erect to salute the flag.

I appreciate how the uterus cake even includes the endometrium......and a couple other linings. All of that for the Manager's Special price of $3.49. Woo Hoo!!

July 14, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterCherylG41

I know the fourth one is from the RSA, so biscuits means cookies (although they look more like cupcakes, or fairy cakes if you prefer), but I'm really stumped as to what "ass" was supposed to be.

July 14, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterEoin

Eoin - I'd guess "ass." was an abbreviation for "assorted".

July 14, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterLady C

Eoin - biscuits are cookies and the "ass" is actually short for "assorted". The term ass meaning bottom is an American term as the rest of the world has an arse ;-)
I too want to know what the last item was meant to be though. The mind boggles!
I LOVE those trees in the first pic :-)

July 14, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterCaryl

ROTFLMAO! OMG. Perfect reactions to posts. Unbelievably funny. Thanks Jen!

July 14, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterMaryO1230

@$$ biscuits?!?!? Ulp, I think I'll pass.😳😰😲

July 14, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterBigg3469

"Ass biscuit" is my new favorite insult.

July 14, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterRoxy Random

Ok WhirlWitch, did you really mean to knock that uterus cake up with your verbiage or... ;)

Thanks for the fun time John & Jen!

July 14, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterJenn Scott

Pleeeeeaaaase tell me the Brittish one is spotted dick :p

July 14, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterJess W.

So, scrolling down, I was thinking that those trees look like "happy little trees" a la Bob Ross... Then I noticed they were "happy" for another reason.

That second cake? Two words: Carrot dongs. Wait... am I alllowed to say "dong" on Cakewrecks? No? Okay... Carrot firecrackers.

Cake three is nice because it's like one of those Magic Eye pictures. At first glance, it's a uterus with a "Sweetie" IUD... how nice. At second glance, it's the exterior of the, as SuBee says, Feminine Nether Region, amIright?

Cake 4- Uh... moving right along.

Cake 5- Wait- what?? What was that intended to be? I'm pretty sure I'm gobsmacked... and in need of some brain bleach.

July 14, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterK Michelle

Perhaps the last one is supposed to be Big Ben holding the union jack?

July 14, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterErika

I think this is one of the funniest ones. Love the video reactions

July 14, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterKaT

This is awesome cuz I just watched Serenity tonight. Nathan Fillion is the bomb. :)

July 14, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterRachel

Ass Biscuits are $49.99 a pound?! And they apparently are good to sit in that plastic box for three eww.

July 14, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterDixie Belle

Ass biscuits.. must be like the pie in The Help.. Mmhm.

July 14, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterAnnalyn

Guess wreckerators will never learn assorted is never shortened that way. Sheesh. Who would want ass biscuits? Scary people that's who. Dying of laughter here.

July 15, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterArlene Marie

I think the ass biscuits must be from one of those places that date like day/month/year, so the shelf time is only 3 days, not three months. The more so that the price is per kilogram, so they're not quite as costly as it looks. Still, I'd like to know which currency they're using. It's not dollars, since $19.80 is a bit much for ... nearly 14 ounces? and then I'd need someone to do currency conversion between whatever R is and $ for some idea of how much ass cookies really cost. I mean, if it turns out that R19.80 = $40, then that would be something else entirely.

July 15, 2015 | Unregistered Commenterbob

I think the last one used the wrong is obviously the Leaning Tower if Penis.

July 15, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterErin

Sorry I stepped on your tail, @bob. Just an attempt at humor on the price per pound, etc. Keeping my day job! ;)

July 15, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterDixie Belle

Thanks for making me laugh this morning. How do they not see p___s trees, p___s carrots, p___s flag pole???

July 15, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterGail Anne

That white phalloid under the Union Jack is rather reminiscent of certain rock formations in Cappadocia, Turkey.

July 15, 2015 | Unregistered Commenterrocketride

You just made my afternoon! Nathan Fillion and David Tennant should appear on every post, but give them "questionable" cakes, and I may ask one of you to marry me! :)

July 15, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterJenny F.

Ass Biscuits is my new Drag Name.



July 16, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterStorm

Flippin LOVE this post!!!

July 16, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterAngela

Don't know if I should be proud to say that the @ss biscuits are proudly South African... lol... we get these things all the time in our shops... so happy something from RSA made it to Cake Wrecks... LOL...

July 18, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterKay

I work as a Sign Language interpreter and I currently interpret video conferences. I unfortunately had this on one screen, while trying to look professional on another screen. Unfortunately, I busted laughing in front of a "virtual" client. This is the 2nd time Cake Wrecks does that to me. I might have to sue.

Also, I would think that eventually, you would run out of cakes to post. I mean, there can't be a constant flow of bad material to feed a daily website, right? RIGHT?


August 3, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterSlivi

Cake number two looks like it is decorated with Oompa Loompa penises, with little tiny fig leaves. I think my brain just broke.
