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? ;)

It's The Most Wreckiest Time Of The Year 

It's my favorite time of the wrecky year, minions: HALLOWEEN.

The time when all rules of cake decorating go right out the window, and anything goes.

Want a scarecrow with a carrot nose in a leprechaun beard wearing a Mary Poppins hat?



How about a hypnotized Mummy eating bacon while sweating blood?



Cheez Whiz candy corn?



Sperm Ghosts?



Pumpkin Volcanoes?



What if you get the hankering for a giant mound of frosting with random brownie bites thrown in?



Yes, my friends, this year really does have it all.

Even oddly specific, physically impossible gravestone dates.



Thanks to Lori R., Meghan P., Robyn, Chris B., Heather C., Red H., & Sarah M. for finding Doc Brown's final resting place in a pile of Rice Krispy Treats.

Stares longingly at the giant mound of frosting... I'll even forgive the bits of cake that fell in it, because they're BROWNIES...

I gotta make one just like that. Soon.

No, I'm afraid that's how long those rice crispy treats have been sitting there unsold.
(Note; That first CCC thing is reduced to just $13 American! For a Pitooy CCC! That would be around $16.25 Canadian! For a cruddy CCC no less)

"Great Scott!!" "McJen, the way I see it, if you're gonna build a time machine into a car, do it with style and use Rice Krispy Treats!"

The brownie bits one reminded me of a REALLY angry Bert from Sesame Street. I don't know why . . .

Jen, you forgot to comment on the wang nose of the brownie bites one! That's kind of you to leave us something to snark on. And, I'm with @Darlene -- you can never have too much frosting! (Even if it is wang-ish.)

I think the pumpkin volcanoes look more like large, grass-skirted men with their backs to us, trying to hide something. But I'm weird like that!

Usually we can count on you to spot the obvious. But isn't the random brownie pile really more of a Halloween costume for a naked guy? (Or part of him anyway? )

I'm glad the rules are slack here, for the wreckorators.There's a vas deferens between a "ghost sperm" and a real sperm...

Oh no. @WifeyDear. Now I can't see anything but those weird grass skirt guys. Pass the brain bleach, STAT!

That grave is for a tortoise.

Hey, what I really look for in my baked goods is not taste or skill, it's PLASTIC SPIDERS. Include one of those, & I'm happy. Because, God knows, I don't have nearly ENOUGH of them running around already as "party favors" from all the Halloween parties my daughters have already gone to...

Not that I am bitter.

Scary Poppins!

The wang-nosed brownie wreck makes me think of Sweetums from Jim Henson's The Frog Prince.

However, what intrigues me more is trying to figure out the wang-like "decoration" under the gummy worms in the background of the time traveling rice crispy wreck. 0.o

Jen, you word stuff so funny, I'm cracking up!

October 31, 2016 | Unregistered Commenterkt

I would just like to thank you for bringing spoopy into my life. I have had that word stuck in my head all day today. I made stroganoff. So naturally its spoopy sauce.

Lol wow at that tombstone. Guess Dracula finally bit the dust didn't he? Lol :D

I think the gummy worms are crawling on last week's giant frosted Easter egg.

@Sendingintheclowns - still spluttering over here. Nice one!

I was chuckling quietly until I came across CLASSIC STEVE's comment and promptly coughed Diet Coke through my nose ! OMG!!

I've been a LONG time follower of this blog and I really should know better!

Too too funny Jen. Luv it!
