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? ;)

Some of my favorite new submissions this week:


I think I'm ready to start eating more fruit, you guys.

I'll, uh, have what she's having.


Over at Epcot (the theme park, not our resident bunker) Disney recently replaced the old Maelstrom ride with a Frozen-themed one. This upset a lot of fans, of course, because Maelstrom was the ONLY Disney ride to prominently feature an enormous offshore drilling rig.

So Maelstrom fans, this one's for you:

They didn't want the words "drilling rig," of course, just a picture of one. Much like the chocolate oil drips and all the Maelstrom quotes about to flood the comments, that's just a bonus.


And hey, while I'm rocking the boat, here's a Brexit cake of a butt-bottomed champagne bottle and a cork that looks like wrinkly balls:


Too soon?



Thanks to Cheryl K., Ashley M., & Fay H., who I'm sure joins me in wondering if that nutty baker was later sacked.


Thank you for using our Amazon links to shop! USA, UK, Canada.

We apologize for the sacking in the previous post. Those responsible have been sacked.

Or maybe now that they've voted to leave, the UK just wants to go back ... back ... over the falls

That last cake was obviously in a duel to the pain. Left wallowing in freakish misery. ;)

I like blueberries a lot. No serioulsy... A LOT. I have never liked them THAT much, however...

What I want to know is why there's a gold chain around the bottle balls... Wait... Never mind... No I don't.

Some posts drive me to do things I never thought I would google euphamisms for "testicles" are the best JEWELS...

All kidding aside, I've heard that blueberries have aphrodisiac properties....

What is the brexit cake made of? It lacks a certain elevation. Is it a cookie? Why do I care? Anyhoo- wrinkly balls always make me snicker. Thanks for that!.
I absolutely MUST see if Publix has those blueberries or do I have to drive clear across town to Whole Foods? Should probably stop my moaning, take several deep breaths, pull up my big girl panties and go find them.
Thanks for another inspirational post!

@Medith You get me. I am going to start slyly inserting "clockweights" into conversations.

If wrinkled Brexit Balls make one utter
Bad words in front of your mother
Than the cookie 'cake' should really say
"Have some 'BIG O' blueberries
and it will all be OH...OH...OH...K!"

I eat organic blueberries almost every morning for breakfast. Had no idea I was buying the wrong kind all this time.

Whoa, they replaced the Norway ride with a Frozen ride? They know Frozen is fictional, right? Are they trying to drum up some kind of Frozen tourism in Norway?

July 22, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterPJ

Bwhahahahahaha. Always knew blueberries were magical. Now I know why and my hubby wants to know why I am giggling.. nope not telling him lol.

I know the UK flag's not the easiest one in the world, but people tend to get al the diagonals right or all of them wrong. Or sometimes they just make them mirror symmetrical. It takes special wrecking skill to get the top left diagonal right and the other three wrong.

The third cake looks like a really large chicken gizzard.

@Medith - I found giggleberries to somehow be the most appropriate for this particular site. Or anywhere for that matter.

Blueberries and giggleberries conjures up some interesting ideas. For fruit salad. Or not.

@Medith-There's also Oompa-loompas (coined by the author of pearls before swine).
Yes I'll have some of those blueberries....LOLOL.
