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? ;)

In Which Jen Tries To Keep The Ball Jokes To A Minimum

Right off the bat, minions, I should tell you today's sportsball cakes are all par for the course.

(Hey, HERE'S A TIP.)


I mean, sure, some will seem out of left field...


...but these are right up your alley.

(I'll spare you the gutter-minded humor on this one.)


And somehow these cakes still reel customers in

...hook, line, and dink(er.)


You may see a swing and a miss:

(Or third base, depending on your perspective...)



But to the bakers, these are a slam dunk:



So the next time you feel like bakeries have you in a choke hold, minions...


...just remember: you could be looking at a real catch.



Thanks to Allison W., Scott W., Sarah H., Annilee A., Christina E., Marla G., Julia K., Michelle L., Steve S., Katie G. for staying on the ball by throwing it in my court after documenting those that dropped it.

I was doing all right until I got to the wrestling cake. That's soooooo wrong! ;)

EXcellent job, Jen. That second-to-the-last one..... um ...... I just don't know what is going on there as I can't quite figure out the -- limbs? and ... things ... that are ... ah .... entwined. But I'm pretty sure you have to pay money to normally see that. Now, where is the eye bleach?

Take me out to the bake'ry
Take me there right away
Buy me some poo-cakes and CCCs (patooie)
I will mock every cake that I see

See those bats? They look phairly phallic
The bowling pins are the same
But it's balls balls balls balls balls balls
That cause bakers shame

Ah; homage to the dreaded misshapen CCC.
I am still struggling to figure out which sport is portrayed in the first one; Golf? Is the lone green cupcake a divot? And, how big is the excavation that THAT ball is supposed to fit into?
Oh, no! There I go again trying to rationalize these abominations.

Omg, take me out to the ball? game, will never be the same.

Got a cake for the ball game,
The decorator's a hack
They look like penis and not ball bats
Carter's cake WHAT THE HELL IS THAT?
So lets root root root for a clean cake,
'Cuz what they did is a shame
Cakes with bats? Balls? ahh hell, penis look the same
At the Cake Wreck Games!

SuBee? I tried, but can never be as good as you my friend! Note: Carter's cake? Taking that with me when I do private security gig at a WWE event Friday night, the 'wrestlers' will just love it right? hehehe

That last one is a Sea Spider. See:

See? Sea Spider.

Holy moly Batman, I ain't NEVER seen so many phallic cakes in my life! The Wreckorators were REALLY hard (whoa!) at work. ROTFLMAO, as usual. Thanks Jen and John....

Oh, Cake've given us a bunch of cakes to see which ones will tickle our can we call these test tickles...?

July 14, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterThe Midnight Writer

OMG, BADKarma, I wish I hadn't followed your link - stuff of NIGHTMARES! As if land spiders weren't bad enough...

Anyway, I have no idea what is happening in the 7th cake. I get it's a basketball, but what's the other stuff? The white part must be the net but not anything like a net, and the line of red???

The 3rd cake is the one really cracking me up today; the bowling ball looks like a face of someone very impressed by the size of the 'pins' around it...

#1 - microphone and wiffle ball?
#8 - Oompa Loompa in a girdle?
#9 - No.

This page is absolute proof that sports and cupcake cakes don't mix. As if cupcake cakes go with anything.

Nope, nope, nope, cupcake poo wang baseball bat just doesn't cut it, nope. And cookie cake poo wang baseball bat is completely substandard; wrapping a little ribbon around it doesn't improve matters at all (as I said to my husband one evening).

And I cannot even hazard a horrified guess at what they're doing on Carter's cake. R-rated Twister for very very good friends with multiple elbow joints?

And some idjit just had to mention Bobby Singer - WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!

#4 reminds me of Lister's account of going "condom fishing" on "Red Dwarf".

That wrestling can't even....

July 14, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterNerfbomb

Oh man I could swear that bowling ball looks like it has olives on it. My eyes are deceiving me of course. No wreckerator would put olives on a cake..bwhahahahhaaa.. yeah they probably would.

I do have a question about Carter's cake:

Why IS Mama June (Honey Boo-Boo's dam) wrestling Tyrion Lannister? And who's winning?

July 15, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterBADKarma

Some dodgy looking willys, and possibly sex.

July 19, 2016 | Unregistered Commenterdiddleymaz

The fishing one I imagine is quite painful for menfolk to even look at. It's making ME uncomfortable, even more than the penis cupcakes. Is a fishing line to the groin an effective substitute for the bother of dating sites / tinder etc do you think? 'Oh there's a good one, get him! ... oh whoops, too small, chuck him back.'
As for Bobby, he's not resting in peace, even in the hereafter the boys still find ways to get him in trouble. How can you not love a show where death is only a change of scenery.
