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? ;)

Lip Service

Allison ordered a cake for her boss Lisa's 50th birthday. To make it a little more fun, she asked the bakery to shape the cake like a big pair of lips.

Thanks to Allison W. for all the mandatory sexual harassment classes her office has to take now. But on the plus side, I DO have the perfect cake for them.


Thank you for using our Amazon links to shop! USA, UK, Canada.

To be fair, maybe she didn't specify which lips...

January 26, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterMiss Paper

Obviously, the person who put these cupcakes together has no concept of what a mouth looks like.

If a CCC was actually ordered, then the buyer gets what they deserve. CCC, just say no. If a real cake was ordered and the bakery made a CCC instead, that is a whole other problem.

This however, looks like Santa roadkill to me.

What's so disturbing about a cyclops butterfly? What? :)

January 26, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterJodi

Um, whaaaat.... is even happening here??

Clearly the Wreckonator didn't know what lips(either pair) OR cake look like.

January 26, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterErica

I would not pick this.
I would not lick this.
Looking high and looking low
These can't be lips; this I know.
Though pink and sweet like a strawberry,
That white outline looks quite hairy.
Not many experiences do I miss
But these lips I would not kiss.

Definitely Santa roadkill. You nailed it, Sue.

Did she PAY for that monstrosity? Auck! I agree with another poster, "Santa roadkill" ! Totally.

January 26, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterMaryO1230

Maybe she didn't realize what kind of bakery it was . . .

January 26, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterHeather

Maybe it was from yesterday's Cunnilicious Cakes...

January 26, 2016 | Unregistered Commenterwildmaven

What is that thing!? (Reference to The Princess Bride intended)

January 26, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterChicago

Apparently the baker has never been kissed...on her face.

January 26, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterSaraCVT

Kind of looks like the United States with Florida chopped off. And then made to look like ], well, liiiiippppsssssshhhh.

January 26, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterWrecky Pete

"Lips?" I do not think that means what the bakery thinks it means.

And, PTUI! for the CCC.

January 26, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterJMixx

This looks like a thyroid... perhaps with some cancer thrown in for good measure... just sayin'. January is thyroid awareness month... maybe they got confused?

January 26, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterSrandall

I thought it was supposed to the the black hole in her cold, dead heart.

January 26, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterDragonmor

I just can't take my eyes off the black hole in the middle. Something tells me that cake is about to eat itself.... It's a fitting end to such an embarrassing frosted ink blot test.... "What do you mean 'latent lesbian tendencies??' -- this was clearly a trick question!"

January 26, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterNaughty Nautilus

This is why I don't do CCC. Thankfully I've only been asked once, and I managed to talk her out of it. Smh.

January 26, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterGina

Goatse. *shudder*

January 26, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterPamela Moulder

To me it looks like a rather oversized rib-eye steak. But I'm definitely down with the "Santa roadkill" concept as well.

January 26, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterItsWhatsForDinner

Omg ,what happened to Santa?????? He' will never be the same!

January 26, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterKnittedbooties

@Srandall: That gives a whole new meaning to the expression "'Roid Rage"!

January 26, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterJMixx

From the cut of view of the pic in Facebook I thought it was a Uterus. Now that I've seen it in full....I'm going to go with skin cancer.

January 27, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterLichan

Guess you just have to specify which lips from now on lol. Oh my gosh that looks so hilarious and wrong. I would have probably died laughing if I had gotten that cake.

January 27, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterArlene Marie

Someone stood over that monstrosity to do some beautiful writing on it. Didn't they notice?

January 27, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterJenE

It looks like a thyroid gland.

January 27, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterMonique Van Keuren

I thought it was a liver cake. I assumed the monstrosity is also organ flavored.

January 27, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterJoAnn

My husband glanced up at this and asked if it was a Batman symbol made of raw meat with a mustache on it. Yes, darling. Yes it is.
