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? ;)

$10 !!!??? For that messy cookie? How on earth can these miserable excuses for bakers earn actual money for these disasters?

I notice on the lovely "gingerbread" cookie, the label says "12'" message cookie with decorations" ... ummmmm, what is the message??? "do as little as possible, make it lame, but still charge $9.99?".... and where are the decorations?????

Who throws away cake?! That's what I wanna know.

December 8, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterMoira

Gah! All of them save the puppy look worse than a fused glass piece shattered in the kiln.

It isn't difficult to make a gingerbread man. Heck, I could figure it out in GLASS when I'm stuck in squares and rectangle bodies. Even made sure to add lines to show arms so hw looked like I wanted.

Heck even my "ugly Christmas sweater" inspired one makes more sense.

It's sadder they probably get paid more for less quality work.

Not the best post to be viewing after a very, very, very nasty bout of food poisoning. BLECH

That trashy snowman is the saddest cake I've ever seen!!

December 8, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterBetty Martin

The depressed snowman cake is a double whammy of bad... clearly if someone is throwing cake away it tastes awful! I can only imagine some people getting half way through before deciding they need coffee to wash the taste out.

Poor sad snowman :( :(

December 8, 2016 | Unregistered Commentermindy1

Even the snowman looks disgusted, Kit. It's as if he knows how bad he tastes.

Gives new meaning to the phrase 'tossing your cookies.'

That second chicken salad snowman doesn't have a candy cane... no, man, he's playing the saxophone. I'll have a bluuuuuuuuuuue Christmas without you....

That poor Gingerbread man looks like it's been tortured.

Drawing a gingerbread man on it does not change the fact that they put a poo wang in the middle of that cookie! Was it supposed to be a turkey until someone realized Thanksgiving was over?

The eyebrows on the "reindeer" look like prunes. This entire post is hilarious!

Why is #2's 'pink pencil' on top?

December 8, 2016 | Unregistered Commenterrocketride

I think the 4th one isnt a reindeer. I think it liiks like a badly done lion.

December 8, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterMoonflwr912

What's going on with the crack head gingerbread man? LMBO!!

December 8, 2016 | Unregistered Commentertmcculloughstewart

I like the puppy. I think he's adorable. The red turd on his head is a mystery . . . but otherwise

December 8, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterLaTalullah

#1 looks waaay too much like a potential King Cake Epcot :P

And that chicken salad. Blargh! Hurk!

December 8, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterZippy

I suspect they made that poo wang look like a disfigured gingerbread man on purpose to try and avoid being on Cake Wrecks. Well it didn't work you got caught you disguised poo wang you lol.

December 9, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterArlene Marie

Wonderful cakes! Thank you for the post as it is most creative!

The first one looks like someone got REEALLLY excited about Christmas. And then you scroll down to the pee-pee-puppy and you could almost imagine how that happened. Upwards, no less.

So is cake #4 a rendition of Gladly the Cross-eyed Bear?

December 9, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterGoose

Just before viewing this, I'd been watching an 'Honest Trailers' video on Youtube, so I ended up reading that whole post in the 'Honest Trailers' voice... And it was awesome!

The knocked-off hat, the akilter eye, the carrot through the heart; all suggest this was personal--Chicken Salad Snowman probably knew his attacker.

@ Goose -- you got me! Excellent!

December 9, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterMary Kay

It's been a really crazy day; these wrecks and everyone's very funny comments have given me a much needed laugh! Thank you all, especially Jen!

I love the little evil gingerbread man on the first one.

"You put a dick on the message cookie."
"That's the message they asked for!"
"And then they didn't pick it up. You got trolled, and now we're stuck with a dick cookie."
"I can fix it! I'll make it into a ... gingerbread man!"
