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? ;)

Halloween "Huh?"s

For today's cakes I have no answers. Only questions.

Uh, what's up with her nose? (Or should I say "down with her nose?")
I like to think it's just a wart, but I get the feeling that it'sss...not.


Why is the toilet paper angry?


What do colorful sperm have to do with Halloween?
(Granted, "Happy" I could see...)


WHAT in the name of sweet Lassie is that spider doing?!?


I have two questions for Mr. Ghost-with-the-Most here:
First, why did the Wreckerator feel it necessary to include two small chocolate bars and a gummi worm? And second, why, oh why, did s/he put them there and in that order?


Now, I don't want to leave you with all questions, my dear Wreckies, so here's a cake that answers the following:

Q) What do you get if you cross Princess Leia, Dracula, and the Bride of Frankenstein?

A) This:


Paige, Carey H., H.M., Erin, Suzanne U., & Daa, you must admit the resemblance is uncanny.

Just three comments:

1) I can come up with two reasons why the toilet paper is angry. (Get it? Number two? No? Never mind.)

2) What is that spider doing to that baby seal?????

3) What is that underneath the booger-witch????? (First cake.)

I don't get the joke about the order of the chocolate bars and gummy worm?

"What do colorful sperm have to do with Halloween?"

Obviously they are from a Halloweenie.

Why do bakers with no talent carry on??

The colorful sperm are supposed to be ghosts...and, with Halloween approaching, they're trying on their costumes. It should be obvious... ....heehee.

Groot is sad that you didn't recognize him in his Halloween costume. :-P

So, no one has an answer about what the spider is doing?!?

October 6, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterDonna Schoonover

I think the last one is supposed to be a bat.

This is, without a doubt, the best captioning you have EVER achieved.

"It'sss...not" = Comedy GOLD!.

Do I spot a PAN-WOW????

October 6, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterRick

The last one looks like a Muppet. It's almost cute! (Almost...)

October 6, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterAmanda H.

Oh, okay....what I *think* the spider is doing is trying to see what's up Lassie's a$$ie....

1) Wicked witch of the west with a bad cold, (and no tissues).
2) You'd be mad, too, if your job was this...crappy!
3) If the sperm are that color, what will the kids look like?
4) This is what happens when you bring your lap dog to the jungle where the huge bird spiders are.
5) A buck-toothed ghost with a harelip?
6) Chewbacca after getting his hair done, and trying to be happy about it.

That first one is her chin...that looks like a pile of green poo. That spider is eating a**. Yeah. I said it! Not afraid! Anyone wanna see flame color added to that angry toilet paper roll? That's what you throw at peoples houses...spice it up.

Halloweenie. Lololololololol.

These wrecks made my nail less toe feel better.

I also would like to know if that dog (if it's even a dog!) is wearing a bow, or if he pushed his glasses up on his head and is now looking all over the house for them. ;-)

I'm less bothered by Sexy Charlotte Spider than wondering what the hell a baby seal is doing on a halloween cake.

October 6, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterHAKIRBY

@Amanda H. - LOL... Good one!

October 6, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterSeabird

That last one. The Bride of Frankenstein bat. It looks like they did the wavy wing edges TWICE. Do they think bats have two wings on each side, like dragonflies?

These wreckorations are most puzzling. I see a Master's/PhD. thesis in some sociologist's future: "Inside the Mind of Big Store Cake Decorators". Yes, Rick, that is the (in)famous Pan-Wow. Maybe the spider/dog started like this "Hey, Bob, what do we have in the freezer we need to get rid of?" "Hmmm, lessee, we got some seals from that Greenpeace display, Harry." "Ok, throw some Hallowe'en flotsam on 'em and get rid of 'em." And lastly, I don't get the meaning of Mr. Goodbar-gummy worm-Krackel, either.

The spider on the baby seal dog is a cave spider. It is excavating for a nesting spot. There is evidence of the excavating all around. See?

Sperm from a Halloweenie *giggle-snort*

Well the angry toilet paper has me laughing so hard right now. I picture this will be the customers face when shown said cake lol.

October 7, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterArlene Marie

I see a dead buttered popcorn cake instead of toilet paper.
