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? ;)

OOOoooohhh...the green one was supposed to be YODA. I did NOT get that until the second batch. I thought maybe it was some creature from Maz's temple that I hadn't noted in the new movie.

Love it John! (THOJ).

Why is the stormtrooper wearing a Santa hat?
Why is E.T. in a Star Wars post?
Why does the chocolate-covered cherry have an overbite?

So confused.

Hmmm...I thought I knew Star Wars, but I don't remember the scene with the shocked tortoise. I might have to go back & watch them again.

In re: #2 - Don't get them wet, and DON'T FEED THEM AFTER MIDNIGHT!

is it wrong that I kind of love that little dried-apple doll Yoda face?

March 15, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterMelC

Hmmm..! Look at the eyes on all of these things. Now, take note of the date. Ring a bell to anyone? From history class? Well, what I am seeing are some quite disturbing Eyes of March. They've come to bury seers, not to bake them.... =^~.~^=

I'm a big fan of the stormtrooper. Very festive.

He looks like the person who is just tolerating the office party, when the over-enthusiastic celebrator (There's ALWAYS at least one) plunks the hat down.

March 15, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterMonica

ahahaha I don't see Yoda, but I do see Goon from Titan A.E.!

I was pretty sure that apple/cherry/skull/winter holiday cake from Sa***ay said "Decorated Festive Waste Cake", instead of whatever it actually says.

Thought the green one was a ninja turtle...

Love the tag next to "Darth" that says Maximum Load. Whoever dropped that load better go to a doctor STAT!

"When 90 minute baked you reach, look as good, you will not..."

"No, he is too crusty. Yes. Too crusty to begin the baking."

"Baking is the path to the dark side. Butter and sugar leads to eggs. Eggs leads to flour. Flour leads to cookies."

"Yes, a Jedi’s strength flows from the cakes. But beware the dark side. Cookies, raisins, spinach; the dark side of the Force are they. If once you start down the dark path, forever will it dominate your appetite, consume you it will, as it did Obi-Wan’s kitchen."

"Nom or do not. There is no try."

"Always crumbs there are, no more, no less."

Cinematic history was made when they created a movie with a Fez-wearing Roomba, a frowning green bowling ball, and a black and white cherry bomb with a skull drawn on it.

Also can we commenters make cake wreck requests? Because I think it'd be *really* satisfying to see a melted blob of Jar Jar Binks. Just sayin'.

I for one welcome our giant Storm Trooper overlords (with red poop hats).

March 15, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterElaine

That Yoda looks more like a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle.

March 15, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterMary D.

To Baked Yoda: thank you!

March 15, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterJudyBeth

Seconding Mary D here--without the ears, I definitely would classify "Yoda" as yet another TMNT wreck. But I suppose you took pity on the turtles for the lengthy post the other day, and felt they'd already endured enough humiliation.

Vadar reminds me of the painting that the Spanish woman "fixed" a few years back.

March 16, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterAndreaClaire

Oh my gosh this had the hubby and I laughing hard! Still am right now too lol. Those poor innocent cakes all decorated to look like who knows what considering I am still trying to see Yoda in that one cake lol.

March 16, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterArlene Marie

To be fair, bakeries probably don't get too many requests for Robot Santa cakes.

March 16, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterEoin

Did anyone else read the label on the third atrocity as 'decorated petite waste cake'?

March 16, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterAlice Shortcake

I was right! That IS E.T.! And when the heck does Santa Trooper come to your house? I think he takes your presents and blasts your tree. And leaves E.T.'s head in your stocking. I'm stopping now.

March 16, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterValarie

It's posts like these that remind me why Cake Wrecks is my absolute favorite blog of all time!

March 16, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterGingerSnap

Santa storm troopers - love it! Why would any baker think that putting a red pile of poo on top of a black and white storm trooper is a good idea?!?

March 19, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterKyle

Love this post.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Yoda's???

May 8, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterJacki J

I thought the Yoda heads were podlings from the Dark Crystal!

June 3, 2016 | Unregistered Commentermel

Nanalettie, Alice Shortcake: you're not alone, I also read it as "decorated petite waste cake" the first couple of times, which seemed appropriate. But if you squint in just the right way it looks like "decorated petite white cake" instead, so I'm guessing that's what it was supposed to be...
