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? ;)

If St. Patrick's Day Was A Horror Movie

[movie announcer voice]
It's the slasher/horror/thriller of the season, and it's coming... FOR YOU.

But, like, in a scary way. (Perv.)


You WILL be scared.

[Wilhelm scream]


You WILL have questions.

"Hang on, how do mutant shamrocks even HOLD knives? I mean, if you think abo...


You MAY lose your lunch.

"Dangit, Darryl!!"


So pucker up, baby:


...and get ready...

"Why's it always have to be snakes?" kiss your Blarney stone... goodbye.

the horror show you'll never believe is family-friendly, but it is, honest, just maybe don't google that exact phrase with your 'safe search' off.

Ahh Jen, Cookie Puss! Awesome. I work with the gentlemen that was the voice of Cookie Puss in the original Carvel commercials all those years ago. Can't wait to forward today's CW post to him! P.S. he's the nicest guy around, and no he doesn't sound like Cookie Puss at all". hehehe

That last one is so horrifying!!! What were they thinking?!! The tiny little arms are going to haunt my dreams!!!

So I couldn't resist and I Googled Cookie Puss Gets Lucky. All I got was pages of cookies, ice cream cakes, cats and one image of a grinning Stan Lee, who apparently did a show called Lucky Man.

#3 - Barbara Bush: "I even tried making it into cupcakes, but still couldn't get Georgie to like broccoli!"

Extra double unicorn nerdpoints and a Kermit flail for the 'Wilhelm scream' comment! :)

Y'all outdid (outdoo-doo'd?) yourselves! Especially with your "snakes"...and the *writer* on the first one could just as well have done a decent "RED RUM!" #2 much!! =^-.-^=

Bahaha @snakes.

You missed a prime opportunity to call those cupcake blobs shamerocks.

What is so scary about the second cake? Its just Mr edwards from Little house on the pairie

March 16, 2016 | Unregistered Commenterlissa

Cookie O'Puss, actually. Cookie Puss's Irish "good buddy," and my all-time favorite SPD-themed ice cream cake from Carvel.

March 16, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterR3test

I'm not sure I am scared as much as I am scarred. *looks for nearest therapist*

Dear pink "Yellow / Buttercream" baker: Kissy lips don't look like that. "Lips" like that need Preparation H.

Over and...OUT.

March 16, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterHairfish

So very frightening. Thanks for the Indy reference to snakes. I could NOT figure out what skivvy tracks had to do with SPD. Oh wait- Irish wannabes who consume vast quantities of cheap green beer then go for the pot 'o gold deep fried cheap cheese i get it.

Love the Indiana Jones reference.

I saw the second cake, and in my head, I clearly heard Brian Blessed's voice say "GORDON'S ALIVE?!" (hope you got around to seeing "Flash Gordon", or that'll zoom right over your head flying blind on a rocketcycle)

Brian Blessed is one of the all-time most awesomest people ever in the history of EVER. He's the oldest man to go to the North Pole (on foot), where he straight up punched a polar bear in the face. A POLAR BEAR, YOU GUYS.

Cheers, slainte, and ERIN GO BRAGH!

The hairy leprechaun on the second cake looks more like an extra in 'Vikings'.

March 17, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterAlice Shortcake

I had forgotten about the legend that St Patrick drove the snakes out of Ireland (Ice Age was responsible), otherwise I would have thought they were going for shillelaghs (phew, I had to look that one up--it's tough when you never ever learned how it was spelled).

Sona Lá Fhéile Pádraig!

Cookie O'Puss!

March 17, 2016 | Unregistered Commenterckf

Oh man that last cake has sucked at least seven years off my life.. yikes lol.

March 18, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterArlene Marie

But given that this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head CLEAN off, ya gotta ask yourself one thing: "Do I feel lucky?" Well, do ya, PUNK?

Cake #2 is a lumberjack, and he's okay. He sleeps all night, and he works all day. If this were a real horror movie, we'd get to see what he's wearing.

#5, you shouldn't try to kiss anyone until you have that condition treated.

Looking at that second one, all I could think was, "Leprechauns...vastly misunderstood creatures, they are. Used t' have a couple workin' as the treasurers of Hogwarts, but Dumbledore put a stop t' that. Poor things."
