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 Toad-ally Awesome Leap Day Celebration

It's Leap Day, minions, so we've decided to take the completely original route of celebrating with frog cakes.

It's a frog. Honest.


The correlation between Leap Day and frogs is obvious, of course:
both are things you tend to forget unless you were born on one.

(To be fair, that'd probably also be pretty memorable for the frogs.)

[croaking sounds]


Plus, you know, frogs jump and stuff.

...when they're not getting run over.

Just like Leap Day runs over with, um, happiness?



Also like Leap Day, frogs rarely show up on calendars.

Unless you count the annual Ripped Ribbets of Reno page-a-day.
("These amorous amphibians are ready to show you their bachelor pads!")


Let's see, what else?

Ah, well, Leap Day only happens every four years, just like frogs take turns visiting me in the shower every four years.

Let's just say they're not the only ones who can hop around and scream bloody murder.


Yep, both Leap Day and frogs can catch us by surprise:



...and are hard to hold onto:


...but should always be celebrated with style:

...until someone gets peed on.

Then the party's over.

So happy birthday, Leap Day babies, and happy Leap Day to the rest of you!

The next to the last one reminds me of those sticky rubber things you throw against a glass and they stick. LOL

"If it's your job to eat a frog, it's best to do it first thing in the morning.
And If it's your job to eat two frogs, it's best to eat the biggest one first.
And if it's your job to eat one of these cakes, it's best to find another job."
Mark Twain

1. So you take the usual "fluffy puppy" cake, ice it in green and make the tongue skinny and it's a frog? Nothing wrong with recycling, I guess.
2. The doctor will probably prescribe an antibiotic if ANYTHING that looks like this comes out of you.
3.Pickle scarabs? (And again with the booger color. Blurk!!)
4. One should never have to ask "bow or sac?" regarding a decorating element. Never. (And the candle homage to early 90s Madonna?)
5. Still overpriced by $3
6. If you only have 1 Hostess Sno-Ball and 6 kids coming to the party....pile on the frosting. Bonus points for
making it look evil as a further distraction)
7. Splat!
8. Jen, that your skills of observation and deduction was able to identify these as frogs is beyond amazing. Bravo.
Gotta fly; things are hoppin'at my pad.

Am I weird for thinking the froggy with the big feet is aDORable?

February 29, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterBetty Martin

Oh my. I know they're wrecks, but they're so hilarious they're cute...

Love the frog in metallic green with the huge floppy feet. But what the hell happened to the one above? Bifurcated frog. Looks like he got in the way of a snow plough!

Good Lord! What did they use on that 5th CCC (patooie) that oozed so much? Even at 70% off, I'm not sure I could stomach bringing that sucker home. Though 20 cents per cupcake is awfully tempting.

It's all fun and games until someone loses an eye or gets peed on.

Oh man these look like they all were mangled in a tragic Frogger accident. Oh the horror lol.

Is it just me, ordid anyone else start singing "Spider Frog, Spider Frog, does whatever a Spider Frog does" when they saw #7? Probably just me.

Hi, I have been following you guys off and on for years, and still LOVE you. I can usually count on you for a laugh, not the cakes as much as your comments, "poetry", puns, and re-written songs. Today's cakes were especially painful to behold. I kind of wish I could un-see them, I think I'm nauseous. Query: was there actually once a frog in your shower?

I need a Halloween mask of #6. I'll just sit on the porch and creep people out. (More candy for me that way. ;) )
