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? ;)

Some of my favorite new submissions this week:


They asked for cupcakes with the Batman logo:

Sing it with me!

Na na na na na na na nana na na...



Renee wanted a number 18 on each of her cupcakes:

Which, technically, she kind of got?


How To Tell Your Baker Has Never Played Tetris:

Step 1: Order a Tetris Cake Step
2: Get this:


Only a true prefessional can spot the oh-so-subtle signs of a bakery cleaning out their flotsam bin:



And finally, I just found your new ice breaker for parties:


If you guessed "a baby in a crib wearing a Christening gown" then, well, let's be honest: there's no way you guessed that.

Silvia, I'd say next time just order the pacifier design, but only because we all know how that'd end up, and I have some great puns lined up for it. [evil grin]


Thanks to Bridget L., Renee D., Emily B., Kida, & Silvia L. for rockin' the cradle of "you've-gotta-be-kidding-me." Now quick, everyone, go print out that cookie picture for your next holiday party!

Maybe it's because I used to work in Pediatrics, but the Batman logo always reminds me of a kid in bad need of a visit to the orthodontist.

Sorry to be such a skeptic, but I think I'm gonna need to see some kind of proof that that's what that cookie is supposed to be, cuz.... I mean... y'know.

It's... What I'm saying is, it's a little off the mark. And a little... on-the-nose for something else.

Praise be! It's the Hanukkah vajayjay!!

December 9, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterSuBee

OMG...SuBee you're right! And hilarious to boot! It IS the Hanukkah vajayjay. I never thought I would use that sentence, not ever. Ohmagerd.

Are those words around that supposed to be baby thing?
That is rather terrifying.

Some of those Batcakes did come close to looking like bats. Or black moths.

Umm, the last one looks like a christmas cookie by a Finnish feminist art group called Nutty Tarts

The word "pipari" or gingerbread cookie that is, also means vagina in Finnish language (in slang at least), therefore the Nutty Tarts make christmas vajayjay cookies every year.

Dammit, I guessed it was bubblegum stuck in a foul beard.

December 9, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterEmma

Wait. What?

December 9, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterLynn

Wowwwwww... not in a million billion years!

Those look like black shamrocks to me. is there a holiday commemorating St. Paddy's death? Is that a thing? And yes, Subee again wins the title for the day.

December 9, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterColin

Ah, the Hanukkah vajayjay - a great miracle happened there. (But it needs blue and silver sprinkles.)

December 9, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterJules

Growing up in Hawaii, my grandmother did have hibiscus and Japanese pumpkins growing in her back yard, however, this does not explain why I would want these two decorations on her birthday cake.

December 9, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterD'Marie

The Batman cupcakes are actually escapees from "The Mothman Prophecies."

And yes, Subee does indeed win the day.

December 9, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterTLC

It's like Georgia O'Keefe and Piccasso had a love child who grew up to be a terrible baker.......

December 9, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterNaughty Nautilus

Batman, no - Crapman, yes!

December 9, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterAlice Shortcake

I so want a flotsam cake. Some poinsettias maybe. Easter bunny. Shamrocks. Maybe a Hanukkah vajayjay.

December 9, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterKnittedbooties

Last cake... A baby what???
And I am too upset about the 18 over the cupcakes. Nobody can be that incompetent... geez!

December 9, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterSherry

That "Tetris" cake looks more like Tangrams to me. (Anyone do Tangrams in elementary school?)

December 9, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterWendy

Yeah, that last one. Perhaps the wreckerator was a Georgia O'Keefe fan?

L'Chaim, SuBee! (although it needs a dreidel or some gelt...)

December 9, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterZippy

That last one is actually Cassandra's shy cousin, Hermione. No, really.

December 10, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterBADKarma

That thing does not look like a baby it looks like a cookie eating vajayjay lol. Scary as heck lol. What the heck makes them think that's a baby?? eeeek

December 10, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterArlene Marie

my first thought about the christening gown cake was that it looks anatomically incorrect. Yikes! Those Batman cookies look nasty.

December 10, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterChicago

The last one kind of reminds me of Nickelodeon's old Klasky-Csupo logo minus the eyes (the one that said the name before the screen went to the splat and the annoying kid laughter).
