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? ;)

We don't usually post on Saturdays, but we couldn't resist, because today... IS....


And as we all know, everything's better with bacon.

Like volcanoes!


And balloons!


And Justin Bieber!


And thongs!


And... *hurk*


On second thought, maybe some things are better bacon-free.

The bacon frosting in a tube IS bacon-free. From the manufacturer's Web site:
Ingredients: Glucose Syrup, Sugar, Water, Vegetable Oil, Artificial Bacon Flavor, Salt, Glyceryl Monostearate, Soybean Protein Powder, FD&C Red 40, FD&C Blue 1

"Everything's better with bacon" still holds. :-)

The legendary Wilted Bacon-Volcano Lily of Despair!

As strange as it may seem, I would actually like to see how that "Bieber-loaf" turned out after it was cooked.

The candles on #4 look...uncomfortable...especially the last one!

I like how the bacon frosting mascot is holding his hand up like "I swear on my life, this stuff's actually much better tasting than it sounds, honest!".

I find it a bit disturbing that the bacon on the frosting tube is eating the bacon frosting. That's like a cow eating a hamburger.

The balloon cake looks like we're supposed to "follow the bacon-brick road." If that's the case, then I will gladly join that road trip. Because BACON!

No matter how horrible they may look, or horrendous the thought may seem..... BACON!

Archie McPhee has the most hysterical bacon related stuff:
We bought the bacon candy while we were in Seattle. Hmm, bacon candy canes???

What did they use for Cake Justin Bieber's eyes? That looks terrifying!

Because nothing says Happy Birthday like buns full of candles and bacon butt!

Not sure if the tramp stamp bacon thong or the waxy candle crack is more horrifying. Either way, I'm still trying to figure out what kind of person Sean is. He likes meat? And strippers...?

Nooooooooo bacon bieber is evil

September 5, 2015 | Unregistered Commentermindy1

Me and my daughter looked at the Bieber-loaf and thought it was Donald Trump. Still, Bieber doesnt deserve BACON!

I have nothing to say that has not already been said, but thank you for the Saturday post. I'm sure all would agree that we appreciate the time and effort you put in to give us a surprise. Mercy bow coo and muchose grassy asss. (I think muchose is a very sweet sugar.)

This is definitely an instance where I'm glad I don't eat pork!

Bacon Bieber --- ::shudder::

September 5, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterErica

Apparently Sean has some hot (thong-)crossed buns. Methinks Sean *is* the stripper.

Okay, I lurk a lot more often than I comment, but... the Justin Bieber loaf... cake... thing... alien from Zardoz... was one of the most unappetizing things I have ever seen that was supposed to be actual food. It will haunt nightmares to come. O.o.

September 6, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterAnise

No, no, not the bacon Bieber - arrggghh!

September 6, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterCarolineB

That Justin Bieber... thing... looks like something you'd see on the TV show Hannibal (yes, I'm mourning its loss.)

September 7, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterEmma

Ack, it looks like they peeled the skin off of Bieber's face! (Vomits)

September 7, 2015 | Unregistered Commentermegankoumori

I'll take my bacon on the side. Thanks.

OMG, it looks like Justin Bieber sustained horrible 3rd degree burn injuries. Please somebody put that out of its misery.
