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? ;)

I'm gonna have to look at pictures of my sister's Irish Wolfhound puppy now. But Mulder's right -- you really can't unsee ...... that.

The truth is out there......

Try to see it as a little baby rhino wrapped in a fluffy blanket. It then becomes a little bit cute.

What I don't understand is why they didn't use one of the two lambs in the back of the case for the front display. They are at least somewhat lambish. Though oddly earless. White seals maybe?

I feel like I should find that horrifying but really, I'm just sitting here at my desk trying not to laugh out loud.

John (THOJ)...Bravo! Hilarious post which, once again made me snort and spit tea onto my NEW keyboard at the office. Coworkers are used to hearing me try to muffle the chuckles and headdesk sounds. Tell us John, confess. You have the most FUN Awesome job finding the pics and stuff to accompany the wrecks and then add your hilarious comments to boot! You and Jen make my day, every day!

Are those also lambs in the background? They resemble koala bears. Are these pictures from Down Under? Believe me, if there's anything an Aussie would know how to decorate, it would be a sheep!

April 5, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterRobert

Honestly this site never fails to elicit an actual audible chuckle from me! And, no, I cannot unsee it. Sendingtheclowns gets an honorable mention for ET foam home!!😂😂

Mary had a little wreck, little wreck, little wreck,
Mary had a little wreck, it came from outer space,
And every time that Mary baked, Mary baked, Mary baked,
Every time that Mary baked, it made a horrid face.

When people saw the cake lamb's face, cake lamb's face, cake lamb's face,
When people saw the cake lamb's face, it made the people choke.
And in response, the lamb he said, lamb he said, lamb he said,
And in response, the lamb he said, "Hey, at least I don't smoke!"

Regarding the seal-like animals behind the first lamb, I can't remember if I've told this story here before, but when my son was three or so, he heard a stray phrase from a telethon, looked up at our collection of stuffed furseal toys, and asked:

"If Easter bunnies bring eggs, what do Easter seals bring?"

I said, "Stickers."

Best post ever!! And not just because I'm a huge X-Files fan. Well, mostly because I'm a huge X-Files fan. But still. That's a kid's worst nightmare right there.

April 5, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterSusan

You wonder what kind of dark, moody place the cake decorator was in when they made that face...

April 5, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterLydia

Just when I thought we escaped the lamb cake.. a scary, hideous alienlamb appears. Oh man lol I wanna unsee!

April 6, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterArlene Marie
