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? ;)

Warning: Weenie humor ahead! 


Anyone else think Halloween cakes have gotten kinda handsy over the years?

No, no. I mean, it seems like the designs are getting a lot...fresher.




For example, some people might think these "pumpkins" represent huge...tracts of land:


Others might think it's a little chilly in here.


Hey, sure, bakers, just stick that candy corn anywhere:

 I'd say the bat was a nice touch, but I think the ghost might disagree.


And when it comes to pumpkin cookies, this bakery offers up some stiff competition:


I'm surprised that they'd erect such a dinky display.


And while that might seem like a hard act to follow, it turns out there's more than one bakery trying to get ahead:


Psst. Bakers. Here's a tip.

Also, I think your problem stems from a cockeyed decorator with a testy disposition getting a good-natured ribbing from the bakery staff.


Ben, Kristen Z., Bevin C., Petra R., Zack J., and Sara W., these cakes salute you.

Sorry about that.

What is that bat trying to do to the ghost's candy corn! Guess that explains the oooooo face!

Wow~ you didn't miss a trick! What a stand up job! Had me giggling so much I read the bakery "staff" part as "bakery stiff"....

1) Why is the skeleton running on top of the poo-covered beehive? And are those hands supposed to go along with the pale green pants of Dr. Seuss fame?
2) I'd look shocked, too, if a spider was tickling my nether regions.
3) And behind the "pumpkins" are..."the curtains".
4) Is it just me, or is that the word "bad" underneath that candy corn the bat is pushing? BAD BAT! BAD!!
5) All I can think of here is a nursery rhyme about a pumpkin eater.
6) See no. 5

Bakeries really do need to hire 12 year old boys. If they giggle at what you've done, go back to the drawing board.

1. Poo-wang with hands?

I think the ghost has 'boo' on its bits. Because that's what you want to hear when getting ... erm ... intimate with a piece of candy corn. And a bat.

Oh dear gawd, my brain just threw the word 'cornhole' at me. I'm so, so sorry.

Why does the weenie have hands? Why are the hands misshapen?

We won't go into what I think the skeleton really looks like.

mindy1 - you must have missed the announcement. J&J are taking a well-deserved sabbatical year and serving up a feast of The Best of Cake Wrecks.
I think the word on the ghost cookie is 'BOO'. It is not well positioned.

I have died laughing lol. Just in time to haunt wreckerators for Halloween. Though I suspect they already are haunted judging by these.
