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 Cookie Monster Day!!

That's right, bakers. You know what to do.





OH COME ON. The plastic one is right there!


[deep breath] Look. You can do this. Just bring the eyes closer together...





Tell you what, bakers, let's try some niiiice, easy cupcakes.

...never mind.

Love those Cookie Monstrosities. (Especially the one with two fried eggs plastered on his face.) …And, I didn't know He was Trans. That last one definitely let the Cookie Monster out of the closet.

Head in lap? CW makes you flexible.

Cake #7 looks like a dust mop with some uh, "dirt" on it.

Are we sure the first one isn't actually some form of knitting? It looks like knitting.

The first one looks like a braided rag rug - which would be cool. As a cookie...not so much.

No,no no noooo; the next-to-last has to be a Smurf; look at the white hat! He likes cookies, too, and may have gotten it from the slob monster up on the shelf above. You know how he makes a mess; he gets so excited, he can't even see straight.... ...oh, wait-

I had no idea that googly eyes could be so troublesome.

"Cakes" one through eight might be described as Cookie Monster Road-Kill.

November 2, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterShirley

Are those olives on cake #5? I guess it makes as much sense as anything.

The 2nd monstrosity looks like a turquoise Lady Cassandra with crusts of ...something. Eeww. Hawaiian Cookie is just bizarre. Stretchy!
The bathmat versions look so soft and fluffy.

@SuBee....I have been singing that song (in my head) all day, and just NOW saw that you posted it, LOL. We must think alike. That itself is either scary or terrific. By my post name, you can probably tell, i'm a HUGE fan or Cookie Monster and I am known for baking cookies and taking them everywhere, which is why I received this moniker. I even had a stuffed Tickle-Me Cookie Monster (yes Cookie NOT Elmo). My Cookie pal was puppetnapped by my firefighters who strapped him in the passenger seat of the Fire Trucks and rode with them to calls. You could even here a "Ha Ha Ha, Me Want Cookie!" over the dispatch radio. BUT...seeing these wrecks gives me a headache. My poor Cookie, what have they tried to do to you! I can't take it, I need to lie down. Thank you SuBee for posting the song I've been singing in my head all day.

I'm pretty sure I saw a rug with the exact same pattern as that second one on sale at Ikea. I believe it was called "Skorklbung" or something like that.

November 2, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterBADKarma

I totally agree with Shirley. Cookie Monster Road Kill - one and all. ROTFLMAO!


November 2, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterMaryO1230

They fried-egged the last one's eyeballs! Aaaaaaaaaaaaagh!!

November 2, 2016 | Unregistered Commentervalarie

@Like90, I'm thinking more the lovechild of Cookie Monster and Mr. Bill (oh noooooooo!)

@SuBee, knockin' it out of the park again! I doff my chapeau to you.

2th verse of SuBee's song

C is for creepy, these CakeWrecks that I see
C is for creepy, these cakes I can't unsee
C is for creepy, I wish I was talented like SuBee
Oh, creepy, creepy, creepy starts with C!

The first one is clearly a previously unknown Picasso portrait of Cookie Monster! Must be worth millions!

I have had a rotten day & nearly didn't go on my tablet today. Boy am I glad I did. Thank you for cheering up a grumpy, cold Brit.😀

November 2, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterGina

Wow so many Versions of Cookie Monster run over by a steamroller today. I'm rather confused how something as simple can get messed up so much…Are these bakers ones who never watched Sesame Street. These make me scared to see them attempt to make An Oscar Cake.

Lulu-you caught what most of us are thinking!
I almost love the 1st one-everything but the black frosting is piped so beautifully!

November 3, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterKaren

The 2nd one has a card, and printed within:

I apologise for my anaemia
I'm supposed to be dark blue
If I could move my weirdly gelid mouth
I'd say 'Happy Birthday to you!'


If you're square and flat not round and fat
I know just how you're feeling
If you're pale and ill, I fit the bill
Get well and happy healing!

Lmao poor cookie monster. Man that first one looks like he was slowly melting away. Scary wreckerators.

November 4, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterArlene Marie

I once tried making Cookie Monster cupcakes after seeing a picture of some beautifully-made ones on Facebook. Not as easy as you`d think. I ran out of blue sprinkles and one of them had to look green like Oscar and trying to make perfect melted chocolate dots on white chocolate wafers for eyes was impossible. But then again I`m not a pro cake decorator.

That splattered Cookie Monster on the white cake is just the happiest Muppet pancake I've ever seen.
