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? ;)

A few of my favorite submissions this week:


Chrystal brought in two photos for her friend's birthday cake, and asked the baker to put one pic on either side of the 32.

Which is exactly what the baker did:




Mickey and Minnie would like to welcome you to your post-apocalyptic vacation:

Because nothing puts the "get-away" in an "AHH, GET AWAY!!" quite like a giant bleeding rock tumor, am I right?



Since the time of the Carrot Jockeys we've all suspected wreckerators have a... unique... relationship with icing carrots - but that's a fallacy!

Sorry, I spelled that wrong. I meant, "That's a phallus - see?"

Seriously, look at that texture. TELL ME THAT'S NOT INTENTIONAL.


And speaking of texture: friends, minions, countrywomen... what in poo-smeared blazes is this?!


Well, on the bright side, at least we finally found a wreckerator who gives two sh*ts.


Thanks to Chrystal H., Mary Beth A., Andi C., & DeLoris N. for wiping out the competition.

I hate to admit I would eat the last one, but me and chocolate icing are besties๐Ÿ˜‚ as for the carrots...this is intentional. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

No doubt about it; Those last things are definitely topped with the contents of the poop-n-scoop baggies from the neighbourhood "Bark-Park".

I'm with @Mindy1 on this. I'll eat anything with chocolate on it. I even bought chocolate cupcakes recently that had chocolate poo-swirl icing on top. That even went through my mind as I placed them in the buggy. And they were good.

Those donuts are ugly, but I would totally eat them. Chocolate is chocolate, man.

November 25, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterWordphreak

A double scoop of poop on those don't-nuts. I have to admit, I'll bet they're exploding with chocolatey goodness.

I think those are chocolate cookie pieces stuck into chocolate frosting on those donuts. I don't know WHY....

November 25, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterCoryEllen

Chocolate!!!!!!! *goes after the donuts*

November 25, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterNathan R.

Is it sad I can explain the last to a certain extent? Cyclops donut, should have cookies n cream whipped instead of chocolate whipped icing. Then cookies crumbs and the double chocolate chip cookie. Should only be a small dollop of icing in the hole of the donut......

Poo on poo, toothache on toothache
Poo on poo, now that they are through
Poo on poo, stomach ache on stomach ache
And I find I can't see doughnuts without poo!

I see the 3-2 cake with misplaced pics
Two by two, pictures pass
And then come Mic and Min
Let's just get away
'Cause cake's a phallus, see!
Now the the week is o'er, there's
Sadness until Monday
We're poo'd as we can be!

Poo on poo, toothache on toothache
Poo on poo, now that they are through
Poo on poo, stomach ache on stomach ache
And I find I can't see doughnuts without poo!

From now henceforth, Poo-Wang-Giving will be followed immediately by "GACK" Friday.

November 25, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterBADKarma

Oh man that last picture. What a load of poop on those donuts. Blah and I adore chocolate. Just not when it looks like that. And the carrot wangs are new lol always something new with these wreckerators.

November 26, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterArlene Marie

On the other hand, I think those are chocolate cake doughnut quarters stuck into chocolate frosting on those yeast donuts.

November 26, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterAlison in Indiana

That first one is just sad. There is no reason for anyone that dumb to remain employed when millions are out of work.

November 26, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterJessica

Cookie bits stuck to filled doughnuts with frosting isn't pretending to be decoration, so does it really belong here? Not that I think it's a good idea to further complicate an iced, filled doughnut.

November 26, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterChris Staffa

Is there no end to the talents of Wreckorators? Poo-Wang Carrots - that's just the icing on the cake.

November 26, 2016 | Unregistered Commenterdr handle

I think the carrots are actually squashes (We call them pumpkins here in NZ) it a Thanksgiving theme or late Halloween?

November 26, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterWeeble

The first one definitely goes into the "literal wreck" file.

The second one has all sorts of wrong. It looks like a giant bullet landed and squished Donald and Goofy. Plus, those little white flecks on the side of the "bullet" look waaaay too much like maggots or tapeworms to me. *shudder*

Do those carrot-wangs in #3 have mold on the ol' "berries?"

As far as #4 goes, I'd be willing to take one for the team to make sure they aren't poisonous. Just sayin' especially if the filling is also chocolate. (There is a wonderful donut shop between my house and work that does chocolate glazed donuts filled with either raspberry jam, orange marmalade, or chocolate ganache. This is why I've changed my travel route to and from work!!!)

One pic, two pic,
Red pic, blue pic

This one has a bleeding rock,
This one has an orange... Jock-*
Say! What a lot of wrecks to mock.

Yes. Some are orange. And some are brown.
Some look like two poops upside down.

From there to here and here to there,
Wrecky cakes are everywhere.

*(ey-less carrot - what were YOU thinking? Hey, my other option was to do the 1 , 2 pattern with the toppings attributed to the final donuts, but I didn't quite have the nerve.)

November 26, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterSeabird

I don't care if it looks like poo, piles up like poo, or even smells like poo. It's chocolate, I mean it's ICING!!!!

November 27, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterBea

I have to admit that my carrots look almost like those. but it is not intentional. These seem to be deliberately phallic. Naughty. LOL
