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? ;)

Grim Prospects

Ever get the feeling something bad is about to happen?

You know, just a general, inexplicable feeling of foreboding?

And then people start giving you strange advice?

Or acting like they know something you don't?

Regret is a dish best served cold...
so two scoops of ice cream, please.

Sometimes it's just a subtle emphasis on a word, or an odd visual aid:

Other times it's more direct:

(I'd pay up if I were you, Patrice.)

Still, even if it's all in your head, it's good to know that some things, at least, are never a bad sign.

Right, Lucky?

Aw, don't look so Grimm, boy; we know you're not Sirius.

The bloody knife in the princess cake is . . . disturbing. The others are amusing, except the hell hound. That is creepy as hell.

I would love to hear the back stories for a couple of these cakes. Wow.

January 20, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterRachel CrazyMum

It's cake, still would eat it.... D:

First cake I see with my name on it and it's a coffin, hmm cool!

January 20, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterMandy Stein

Okay...I get the hell hound. But, what's with the cocktail weinies?

January 20, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterJodi

Old Bo has to go. All he does these days is roll around in his poo on Grandma's Harvest Gold shag carpet.

January 20, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterOld Marshmallow

They should've gone with "Semper Ubi Sub Ubi" for the underwear cake.

Something is telling me that the demise of Mandy's poor hubby was not as accidental as it appeared to be. But I'm sure it had nothing to do with that 10 million dollar life insurance policy . . .

So is the dog laying in fire or poo? Or is it poo set on fire?

January 20, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterKat

I wonder what De Corpse is Espirting.

I live constantly with a feeling of foreboding, waiting for the other shoe to drop, even surrounded as I am by a veritable shoe store of dropped shoes. Maybe if I had a clear picture in my mind of just exactly what constitutes 'underware", my dread would ease. (Envisions something vaguely metallic, with leg holes...) No, probably not.

All I can think about is, if that had been a real coffin... how would they have been able to close that lid?

January 20, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterMaria

Maybe Mandy just finished her studies to become a thanatologist? (I hope.)

January 20, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterAthena

Right, I've got it: cakes #2 and #5 are actually for graduating morticians who have just finished their studies and qualified - the spelling mistake on #2 is not what you think, it should read 'Expert de Corpse', because clearly they're raring to hit the embalming tables right now.

As for Bo, I can only say that he's the cuddliest-looking Hellhound I've ever seen, and if making a deal means I get to be dragged to The Pit by a Labrador, maybe it wouldn't be as bad as 'Supernatural' would have you believe...

January 20, 2016 | Unregistered Commenterdr handle

Anyone else thinking #2 could have been decorated with fruit-flavored candies? No?

I'm the only one who heard 'a Spree decor'?

.... move along, nothing to see here.

The fact that you made a Harry Potter reference just made my day!

January 20, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterMelissa

<sniffle> Too soon on the dog cake!

January 20, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterKelly

Dr handle, I love you. LOL

January 20, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterStrangeAngel

"Can you make a hot dog cake?" "Sure." "Uhm.... a dog on fire isn't exactly what I meant by hot dog...."

January 20, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterNaughty Nautilus

That first cake with the balloons first appeared in Stephen King's IT miniseries, didn't it? Creepy, but I kinda like it (just like the movie, It. Not the creature, It. I don't like It.)

January 21, 2016 | Unregistered Commenterlazykerri

OMG! I almost spit water all over my PC!

The Hell Hound is astounding.... but the creepiest cake is the one w/the knife (cake oozing 'blood') whilst (well dressed ) damsels waltz around the edges of the cake. AUCK! Truly nightmarish..... something out a of a REALLY bad ballet dream.

Too, too funny. Thank goodness for this hilarious blog. Makes my day - always! MaryO

January 21, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterMaryO1230

Well I wonder what Patrice thought seeing that cake.. lol. I would just eat the thing and pretend it didn't have an ominous threat attatched to it.

January 22, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterArlene Marie

So delighted to have found cakewrecks today, via bloggess. Haven't laughed this hard since...ever. Probably. Have to go find something sobering to read until my jaws stop aching. Thank you, cakewrecks!

January 24, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterKilty

@AmberK FTW! Poor Patrice.

And definitely too soon to be Sirius and Grimm. :'-(

January 26, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterAgent B

After a long day at work I so enjoy not only the photos but the comments [and *rests hand under chin* gestures] added! Great sense of humor, I do think it means what you think it means! Thanks for the laughs!
