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? ;)

The Giving Spree 

It's been six months since Valentines day, minions, so CLEARLY you need a refresher in romance.
And CLEARLY I am the one to give it. Because CLEARLY I am a giver. (Shush, John.)


Maybe try one of these?


- Play some sexy music

When in doubt, go with the classics.


- Recite a romantic poem

Why are there only 2 ducks? I'm so glad you asked.
Because you put the 3rd somewhere... wet.
Like the bath tub.


- Wear something daring to bed

Like clown pants.


- Play Doctor



And finally, if you're feeling really adventurous....

- Try picking up hot chicks together

Mmm. Melty.
Now, let's go spark some romance, peeps!


Thanks to Jan B., Katie C., Jillian I., Jude M., & Liberty for discovering true poultry in motion.

Note from john- Jen assures me that the kitty simply had a booboo and the nice vet was making it all better so it could frolic with its friends.

While I can't think of a single celebration that would call for a cake in the shape of clown pants, in the genre of clown pants made from baked goods, that's a mighty fine specimen. Those teeny flowers in particular are adorable.

Wait, are those really melted Peeps on cupcake bottoms? WHY WOULD THEY DO THAT?

When a Man Loves a Woman, When a Snake Loves a Turtle - It's really all the same.

When a snake loves a turtle
Can't keep his mind on nothin' else
He'd change his shape
For a good thing he's found
If it is bad, he can't taste it
Gobbles down a bunch
Follows up that duck
He enjoyed for lunch

When a snake wants some turtle
Don’t want to eat no cat
Even one so nicely displayed
He’d say no to those chickies
Melting in the sun
If told that turtle’s on
The menu today

When a snake eats a turtle
He falls under its spell
Trying to hold on
To that yummy treat
Turtle served on the half shell

When a snake enjoys turtle
Though so hard to digest
(It can bring him such misery)
Change of shape is no problem
Put on his best clown pants
So that lump no one can see

That diseccted cat cake.... dear god why??

August 16, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterZeenia

I LOVE the cat one!

August 16, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterAmy

@SuBee....YOU WIN! To Quote a wise woman "When a Man loves a Woman, When A Snake Loves A Turtle-It's really all the same". Hahahaha. You would think I would have learned by now NOT to drink coffee at my desk, when I open Cakewrecks ! Oh well, excuse me while I go clean up the keyboard, monitor and dry out the paperwork that got caught in the mix. Thank you Jen and SuBee for the huge laughs today.

Why is that snake tied in a knot?

Those are the most high-waisted pants I've ever seen.

I'm pretty sure that the cat autopsy concluded with the rescue of previously eaten chicks, giving them a melty appearance due to . . . oh, never mind. It's just TOO DISTURBING!

August 16, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterKimS

Tell me that's NOT a cat ready for dissection -- please!

August 16, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterDorothy

From the first to the last, icing, icing, icing!

My idea of the perfect cake is one with at LEAST a 1:1 cake:icing ratio, and the first one's got that COVERED! (See what I did there?)

I can only hope those chick ones have the icing piled up until they are at least as much icing as cake.

Speaking of icing, the cat sure looks like it's still got fur. How did they get the icing to look SO MUCH like fur?

August 16, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterBea

What POSSIBLE OCCASION calls for a "Dissected Kitten Cake"!???!??!?!?!!!

August 16, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterBADKarma

What did the snake swallow? Must be a big blob of icing.

August 16, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterJane

The words on the first cake seen more fitting for a Barney cake. Not a chocolate wang monkey.

August 16, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterJaime

Suebee bahahahaha :D if I were president, I would make mandatory for bakers to have passed basic elementary school biology and art class :P

August 16, 2016 | Unregistered Commentermindy1

That's a well-done depiction of a dead, dissected domestic catcupcakecake...if I do say so myself.

August 16, 2016 | Unregistered Commentersendingtheclowns

@ SuBee - I'm howling!!!!!!!! GENIUS!

On a sadder note: - that poor eviscerated kitteh is so sad - and NOT very anatomically correct, and the melting peeps are sadder.


August 16, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterMaryO1230

The cat cake is making me really sad but it's very well done! Hopefully it's, I don't know, a celebratory cake for someone graduating from vet school or a pet's successful operation instead of something awful.

August 16, 2016 | Unregistered Commentersairentohiru

That cat one is AWESOME!!!

August 16, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterCasey

Ah, a dissected cat. Just the sort of thing I want to see while I'm enjoying a pizza puff. What kind of person wants a cake to remind them of a dead kitty with its organs exposed for all to see?!

August 16, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterTB Tabby

And now I'm having flashbacks to Anatomy & Physiology lab ...... although our feline 'specimens' were a little more, shall we say "prepped" than the cake. But not much.

August 16, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterRanneyLou

Ewww...memories of cat dissection lab in my college physiology class--not something I want on a cake. I can still smell the formaldehyde!!

August 16, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterTwinMom

>>Note from john- Jen assures me that the kitty simply had a booboo and the nice vet was making it all better so it could frolic with its friends.<<

Of course. If the poor kitty were a dead kitty, there'd be X's for eyes.

Now I know what to give someone if my car runs over their cat!

August 16, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterSandy

o.O you know that cat cake isn't really a wreck - but it is in poor taste. I can't unsee it and I wish I could.

August 16, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterLike90

Did the snake on the 1st cake EAT Barney? That's the only connection I can make between the strange lump and the lyrics.

August 16, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterSusan

I think the "snake" is a dinosaur...big apatasaurus or something. As a vet, I think the kitty is awesome and something we totally would have done in school :)

August 16, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterMelanie

Isn't it obvious where the third duck went? though I can't account for the extra 2 feet. I love the hearts on that snake's back, too.

August 16, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterSue

Ah yes...nothing says "romance" quite like a knotted poop snake & a Barney quotation....

I'm going to assume that the cat one was for a veterinary surgeon, because that's the only rational explanation for that cake to exist.

Actually, even that isn't a good enough for it...wait, I'm changing my response...

I'm going to assume that the cat one was somehow imported here from Bizarro World (were such cakes are considered quite tasteful & appropriate for all occasions), because that's the only rational explanation for that cake' existence.

August 16, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterNerfbomb

I am a veterinarian so I love the dissected cat cake! Those are some realistic intestines--well done! And I find it much less disturbing than the "fetus cakes" frequently featured here.

August 16, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterNicole

Ah, the cat cake takes me back to vet school anatomy lab.....

August 16, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterBlackwing

Like Nicole said - I don't mind the cat cake nearly as much as the "fetus cakes" that are seen here at times. But with that said - what the heck is that thing on cake #1? Poopasaurus rex?

August 16, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterKyle

Do you have a serial killer in your life who is hard to shop for? Try our new line of eviscerated kitten cakes!

I sincerely hope that was for graduating from veterinary school................. not "I'm sorry I ran over your cat" or "I've made an appetizer for an 1980's styled Satanic cult!"

August 16, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterNaughty Nautilus

Actually, those pants look more like the jeans we used to decorate in the 70's with fringe, rick-rack, buttons, and hand-embroidered flowers.

August 16, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterMeg

Oh that cat cake has disturbed my dreams tonight I am sure.. why oh why did they make this cake??? To scare unknowing customers that's why. Eeeeeek.

August 17, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterArlene Marie

I would totally wear those clown pants. Not even joking.

August 17, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterSarah Beth

What's love got to do with a poop with eyes?

August 17, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterCheeto

...why does that dissected cat cake have red devil horns?

August 17, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterCatherine

For some reason, the pants seem to have a very concerned expression.
