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? ;)

Is that cake? 'Cause that shiny outside is making me think it is ice cream. Ug. Epically bad of course.
Love the cartoons as always John (thoj)!!

Husband: I won't bother you. I see you're entranced by your pornographic cake.
Me: It's not pornographic. It's a turkey.
Husband: Turkey? It looks like chopped liver.

A baby shower cake recycled as a Thanksgiving turkey cake?

March 10, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterAthena

Hysterical! I love the cartoon reactions almost more than the actual cake :-D

March 10, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterSusan

Eghad! Has the baker
never seen a turkey?????

March 10, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterAva

LMAO! The look on J(thoj)'s face is priceless!

Bwah ha ha ha ha ha ha! *GAAASSSPPPP** Ha ha ha ha ha ha!

I don't know which made me laugh harder: the "turkey" cake or "Watch out Facebook, here we come!"

Did you draw the cartoons yourself?

[Note From Jen: The facial expressions, yes, but the body & computer are from an old "Rage Comic" meme. John adjusts the body and adds props (or other characters) in PS as needed - which is surprisingly time consuming. I'm his armchair quarterback, so we spend a lot of time getting the expressions just right. "Ok, now move the mouth dot about a quarter inch to the right..." - that kind of thing. Heh.]

Bwahahahahah!!! Oh my, these stick-John reaction posts always crack me up! And that cake? Just, WHAT?!

March 10, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterLaura P.


Yeah, my face is the last cartoon right now!

March 10, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterErica

Love the cartoons, as always!

March 10, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterAngelaS

Between the 'cake' and the last two cartoon drawings I'm ROTFLMAO! I've learned NOT to drink coffee/water/tea when reading this hilarious blog. Too funny!

March 10, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterMaryO1230

Bwahaha the cartoons are perfect XD as for the cake...that is so not a turkey.

March 10, 2016 | Unregistered Commentermindy1

So....I've noticed that the post still has yet to make it to FB. C'mon, guys - you know you want to see what the reaction will be!

March 10, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterLady Kal

Why in the name of Betty Crocker does it look like it's been patched, spackled, and Venetian-plastered?
Put down the can of edible spray lacquer and step away from the "bird."

That's the worst I have EVER seen. And I used to have to make these things for people with no taste whatsoever. It had to be special ordered because we refused to keep them in stock because they look horrible... nothing redeeming about them at all. I offer a letter to the wreckerators who keep making them:

Dear Large Ice Cream Franchise with Blue and Pink Logo,

Please stop making the monstrosity you call "Turkey Cake". While amusing, it sucks even when it's done correctly. And while you claim, "Our unique dessert is sure to be the centerpiece of any holiday gathering. This all ice cream cake with sugar cone legs can be customized with one or even two of your guest’s favorite flavors.", unique is not always good and it will end up on Cake Wrecks no matter what you do.

Thank you!

Well, THAT'S a whole new meaning for "giving someone the bird"!

March 10, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterBobot

Paint it black and it doubles as Madonna's belly cake.

March 10, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterChristineR

But they're DRUMSTICKS! Totally appropriate! OH BOY!

March 10, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterJulia

My 3 year old says "That's a kitty with sprinkles sitting on grass. Dessert grass. It's dessert, and it's grass, so it's dessert grass!" LOL

March 10, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterElizabeth A.

It looks like a pregnant belly cake with questionable embellishments.

March 10, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterSally

Where are the wings?

March 10, 2016 | Unregistered Commenterjbrecken

Still using that dial-up modem?

March 10, 2016 | Unregistered Commenterphludens

Aghast. And strangely mesmerized. OMG.

Not helping that it's shiny and flesh-colored vs. roasted-turkey-colored. And it looks like something was stuck to the front (or back?) of that THING, and my mind is going really unsavory phallic-shaped places with imagining what might have been tacked on there.

OMG. I can't... look away....

March 10, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterNatalieG

Am I the only one who sees a FOOTPRINT on the near side of the belly in the last shot??!! A botched one, but still . . .

March 10, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterSandra

Hare those poultry dripping all over the icing lettuce? Mmmm...

March 10, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterAlex Powell

HA! Dare you to post it on Facebook...

March 10, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterAnise

The shininess of it is what gives me the willies. Ewwwww.

March 10, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterSusan

Well this is a dear god what is that thing? Kind of reaction I got when hubby saw it lol. And me too for that matter. Those uhm breasts look rather perky and painful lmao.

March 11, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterArlene Marie

Sandra - you're so right! There was a footprint on there! Either these people have an actual pregnant torso pan with the footprint built in, or they have recycled a cake already made for a baby shower - probably when the purchasers refused to accept it.

March 11, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterMorag

How is this a turkey? I don't know what it is, but I like it.

March 11, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterDippyDawg
