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? ;)

Move along.

He blinded me


Who's up for a snowball fight?

(I can't tell if the middle guy is volunteering or flipping me off.)


A pink bowling pin + a pair of bowling balls = everyone's mind in the gutter.


The Force is strong with this one.


Who needs third base?


Gee, these bones look a little dry. Do you suppose the grill chef is a master baster?


Carrie, Meg N., Tracy, Melanie V., Carrie G., & Amy L., I hear it relieves tension.

Grilling. I'm talking about grilling.

On cake #5 the cap and ball are done so well ! They must have outsourced the bat.

Penis (Venus)

Snowman on a mountain top
Waiting to play a new game
With snowballs and maybe a bat
His Penis knows no shame

They’ve got it
These pastries they’ve got it
They’ve got a penis, to admire
On the grill fire
Bowling penis, baseball penis
They all inspire

Like weapons they’re ready to fire
Josh feels quite queasy and sad
Science now has some allure
And scientists are glad

They’ve got it
These pastries they’ve got it
They’ve got a penis, to admire
On the grill fire
Bowling penis, baseball penis
They all inspire

I don't know how many more ways there are to emphasize that sentiment. They must stop!

July 22, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterAngelaS

awesome song, SuBee! and i definitely think that snowman is flipping us off. because we're all looking at his huge....feet.

I think a solo home run would be possible with that bat. It looks strangely like something i may or may not own!

July 22, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterRb

No bones about it, these decorators are ballers! They can hardly contain their excitement! Just look at the wood on that bat! And those testicle tubes!

Why oh why did the baker chose to make a flesh colored baseball bat?? It had to be intentional, don't you think?

July 22, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterAnonyMe

Such a good helmet and ball. :/

*urgent whispering*: "Kids! They just put up some funny stuff your parents are NOT going to want you to see! Get IN here-- HURRY!!"
The 2nd one? I'm going with "flipping you off"... because it's funnier. It also looks like something I'd do myself if all I had to do all day was play with balls in a bakery.

The force may be strong with that one, but it is definitely LONG with that one.

Extra-strong facepalm ... jamming the heel of my hand into my forehead and trying to laugh discreetly so I don't get caught ... cough ... splutter .. wiping my eyes ... what the heck was the baseball cake wreck-erator thinking?! Shoulda just not bothered with the bat at all.

Thank you all! I really need to laugh right now and you have helped me more than you may ever know. Then on Sunday, when it is time for Sunday Sweets- I smile at each picture and say wow, look at that, wow, wow! That helps, too.

@SuBee Hilarious! Perfect parody, and when I read it, I could imagine Mariska Veres singing that, too.

Haha! One of my favorite posts, especially the wang-beakers.

The bowling pin was almost a success, until they put pink frosting on instead of white. Why? Why the pink frosting?

I notice the chocolate "bears" to the right of the "snowmen" are from the same mold. Are they salty, too?
Are they salty, chocolate "bears"?

I think the wang-saber typifies what goes wrong with most "accidental"-phallus cakes; they take a cylindrical shape and, instead of making it smooth & innocent, they make a dent or lump at the end that looks like a glans. Plus it's grey, and the erroneous coloration makes it look even more like a vibrator than the shape alone would.

I agree with Bin & AnonyMe; Perfect colors, shaping & details on the hat & cap, with a pink, lumpy, half-assed approximation of a bat. Much like that thing-that-doesn't-exist from yesterday, I think that the bat was done either by the same person "under the influence" or by a second person with a dirty mind!

One thing that truly confuses me: what were the burnt-wangs on the grill cake meant to be? The look like bones, but why would anyone put bones on a grill? If they're supposed to be hot dogs why'd they make lumps on the ends? Are they supposed to be drumsticks maybe? Another cake that just gets more bizarre the longer you think about it!

@ Nerfbomb...well, I was maintaining my discreet snickers until "Are they salty chocolate "bears"?" I almost bit my tongue from laughing in the office.


Well, my afternoon break is over, I'll catch you all again tomorrow.

Jen, you know how paradehelion is seeing faces in inanimate objects? I think you might have penidehelion...

July 22, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterAnne R

@Nerfbomb: Try NOT to think about it. Just relax and enjoy the crazy. It's possible that these artisans could be from a different galaxy, and may not see things the way you or I might see them (if they can see at all). I would be inclined to worry more about the taste, but as a big Ham once said, "Ah, there’s the rub!." How do you taste something you can't stand to even look at?

What if those are snowBOOBS?

July 22, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterSarah B.

Cake #5 was clearly made by a Yankee fan. There's no other explanation.

July 22, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterKatie

At least it was the right baseball team. Although ... maybe ... oh never mind.

July 22, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterJennwith2ns

Is that a cake wreck in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?

July 22, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterZippy

Master baster!!!!! Lost it!!! Lmao!!! 😂😂😂😂😂

July 22, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterSteph

If you ignore the "feet," the snowmen are kind of cute.

Am I the only one that thought the 'light sabre' was supposed to be a grill brush? No? (crickets) Ok, I'll be over here then.....

July 23, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterMarv

Yep that middle snowman is definitely flipping us off lol. Heck can't really blame the poor guy. And I can't stop laughing at the bat. Oh man and the supposed lightsaber. Sheesh.

July 24, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterArlene Marie

The 4th one has me scratching my head. Was it supposed to be a Light Saber? A grill brush or spatula? A Harry Potter riding Broom? Ugh, I give up. And then there's the last one. The "BBQ Grill Cupcake Pullapart" alone has my head hurting... but then that raises the question of what in the world are the supposedly GRILLING on the BBQ Grill Cupcake Pullapart? Bones? Who DOES that?
