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? ;)

Winter Blunderland

Those bell things

Are they listing?


Yellow snow

Stomach's twisting


Unusual sight

He's happy tonight

Gawking in a winter blunderland.


Gone awaaay
is the bluebird

In his plaaace
is a reinturd


My feeling is strong

That this is all wrong

Gawking in a winter blunderland.


This is really quite the bug-eyed snowman!

I'd just rather not see him around


He'll say, "Won't you buy me?"
I'll say, "No, man!"

"You've even got the penguins feeling down!"


We should kiiill
this with fire


I think thiiis
is expired


The way Rudy's splayed:

He may need first aid.

Gawking in a winter blunderland.


Let's sing the praises of Mike M., Lena C., Grainne A., Adam S., Tara K., Jessi C., Michael B., Kendra M., Dan E., and Amy N.

Marvelously perfect parody song, horrible cakes!

Jen, this is your best yet! :)

Excellent song along with those...creations! I wouldn't have been able to identify what some of them were supposed to be without the lyrics, and I'm still stumped on #5. Anyone else have any ideas? I mean, besides piles of intestines and a pile of poo. And poor, dejected penguin, I almost want to give him a hug! Except he looks too sticky.

BRAVA SHARYN...I prefer your version of this holiday melody! I'll be singing "Gawking in a Winter Blunderland" all day. "

December 11, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterCookiemama

Brilliant then...and still brilliant now! Thanks, all!

December 11, 2017 | Unregistered Commenterharold

Incredible! Awesome lyrics to go with the blunders.

December 11, 2017 | Unregistered Commenternadinucca

This got me chuckling anew.

I thought Rudy was a Christmas rat with a hat.

December 11, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterGrrly Girl

Those are breath takingly HORRID. But.. they made me laugh!!

Who sang that out loud? ::raises hand::

December 11, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterRachel CrazyMum

This was brilliant!

December 11, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterJerryBeary

That was perfect! You should write for Garth Brooks! Or Hanson. Or The 3 Tenors.

Is that penguin's tie made of... toothpaste?

December 11, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterSamantha Wood

That song was sheer genius. My hat's off to you, Sharyn.

I think we should come up with a new name for the reinturds. Poo-dolph sounds appropriate, don't you think?

December 11, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterMike

After seeing the Gingerbread Man (OH MAN!), Frosty is impressed and Penguin is feeling inadequate. Bless em.

All I can figure out for #5 is that perhaps Poo-dolph had done a fly-over.

December 11, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterMoira

Love the poor penguins. That was the perfect, unexpected line. Brilliant.

I think the pink blobs on the red cake are Christmas trees with gold stars on top, but the brown pile is a mystery. Looks like some bad dog owner failed to clean up. The wreckorator must surely be color blind.

Did anyone else sing along? Because I sang along and it was perfect!

December 11, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterKim

I loved "we should kiiiill this with fire!" :)

December 11, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterAndrea

I’m still awake! I thought the thing at the end was a rat, too. Why a pile of poo on the red cake? Ewww

December 11, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterMw

Rudolph looks like he got flattened by a steamroller. Wow and the depressed penguins need an escape plan before that scary looking snowman gives them all a horrible fright. Lol tried to sing but I am sick so had to whisper it.

December 12, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterArlene Marie

Hey, it's Wheezy from Toy Story! LOL HIlarious!

December 12, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterJulse

BF is wondering what Im snickering about.


December 12, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterAmy

OMG! You're gooood!
I'm laughing out loud and people in the tram are looking funny at me...
Not suitable for public transport hahaha

December 12, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterTala

Another brilliant post, Sharyn. The lyrics go perfectly with the wrecks.

December 12, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterJuin

Am I the only one who finds the penguin cute in a sad way?

December 12, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterSiobhan

I sang alone here! LOL

December 12, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterMadoca

I really shouldn't try to read this while my students are taking a test. Smothering giggles rarely works!

December 12, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterLisa

You are a GENIUS! I tell you: A GENIUS! Thanks for the laugh (again).

[stands up and cheers]

Brilliant. Absolutely brilliant. And, by the way, photo number one is a Christmas Lungs cake.

Bet you can't un-see that. Heh.

December 12, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterDances With Lasagna

Wow, that's quite the…bow tie on the gingerbread man.

I'm in a concert on Sunday that has a sing-along portion. Alas, we are not doing "Winter Wonderland" where I could sneak in these lyrics to the audience.
