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 dont know why the decorator, who is able to do decent fondant work decided on ribbons for the mane and tail. There is no excuse for the colors being that off. Those two facts would make me livid.

The dragon head for the unicorn, is sort of a shrug.

This seems to be a passive agressive wreck, which I would love to hear the back story.

Its face looks like that flying creature from The Neverending Story . . .

I think I figured out what happened here. This was a unicorn, (or some semblance thereof), that was obviously pursued by poachers, who wanted to remove its horn for the magical potions and healing properties it contained. However, this beast was not such an easy capture. It ran for its life, but in doing so ran for so long that it didn't sleep for days, thus the red eyes from the lack of sleep. It was so scared, that its hair was turning from black to blue to gray, and would have gone white with more time. The poachers would not be denied, so they finally got this sad creature surrounded. In trying to escape, it ran headfirst into one of the poachers trucks, thereby its long face was then smashed into the stubby thing we now see. The now stunned critter was captured and its horn was removed. But with all the trouble it had given them, they decided that the horn was not enough for their trouble, so to make a little more money, they decided he should become dog food, so they barbecued him. The end. (That's my story and I'm sticking to it).

Something about that face reminds me of the Grinch.

Are we not going to talk about the legs? Or how the hooves are tapered? And how it looks like the skin around them is a literal seam?

I think thats a unidrag UnicornXDragon don't ask how it happened but it did :/

October 3, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterGoblinPrincess

It looks like the belly of the unicorn was cut open, Tauntaun-style. Was it served Luke-warm?

October 3, 2017 | Unregistered Commenter3Davideo

That's not a unicorn or Pegasus. It's obviously Pennywise mid transformation into a winged hellbeast. Can't you see the clown trousers around its misshapen hooves?

October 3, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterZeenia

Those hooves, though...

October 3, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterJodi

the original cake had a baby Pegasus unicorn... thank goodness the wreckenator didn't try that one also!

October 3, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterRenee

Does it have turbo jets for hooves?

October 3, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterFelix1140

Do...the hoofs have concave paw prints on the bottom?

October 3, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterVicki

Am I the only one that thinks that red ribbon on the side looks KINDA like a pool of blood? Like maybe the only thing that remains from Horror Hooves' latest kill?

October 3, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterSarah H

Wait-- they make barbecued DOG food now?

October 3, 2017 | Unregistered Commentersendingtheclowns

The backstory? Get backhoe and bury it!

I think its head looks like the demon Bronco statue outside of Broncos stadium in Denver.

October 3, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterJodi

If 'It' was remade by unicorns...

I dare not show my unicorn-worshipping daughter the original cake for fear that she’ll want one and my eardrums will explode with her squeals. I dare not show her the wreck for fear she’ll have nightmares for weeks. I just might, myself.

I’m coming to take your soul...(maniacal laughter)...

October 3, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterSaraCVT

The demon horse statue you're referring to is out by Denver International Airport,and is known locally as Blucifer. It's eyes literally glow red, and it killed it's creator. This cake is definitely related o.O

October 3, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterPiecedlife

It takes real talent to make something THAT HIDEOUS. Crap like that doesn't just happen by accident. That Total Wreck was well-planned and carefully executed...just as the wreckerator should be.

October 3, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterHairfish

It looks like it just ate a Pixie....

October 3, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterOldish Lady

Yeah, that's definitely my band's first album title.

I have a feeling that was the IT clowns pet and somehow it found its horrific way into a bakery and snuck in a customers cake box where it promptly scared the heck out of everyone when they opened it up lol.

Nostalgia! This is the post that first brought me to your blog several years ago. Thank you for the late night laughs when I can't sleep. You are sanity savers and are getting me through the newborn stage of my second child at this very moment. Bless you!

This has been my first time meeting the intersection of Stephen King and cakes. Alas, not the last.

So glad to finally see the baby unicorn.

Someone might have made this comment but it looks to me like ET had a party, got really smashed and this is the morning after pic.

October 4, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterBrenda G

Mike nailed it!

October 4, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterLynne

I would not have paid for that junk,I could of done better myself at home.

October 4, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterStacy

Thanks @Piecedlife. I couldn't for the life of me remember the nickname for that statue! And I forgot that it killed its creator! Hope none of these cakes did the same.

October 4, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterJodi

OMG, that evil eyed Pegasus was just what they asked for.. aarrrgh

October 6, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterBodynsoil

That cake was tacky and tasteless since the original version.
