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: A supposedly naughty cake ahead. (But good luck seeing it.)


"We asked for Mike Wazowski from Monsters, Inc."



"This was our Hello Kitty cake:"



"They told us those were flames."



"Believe it or not, it's supposed to be a penis."




Thanks to Amy J., Cindy P., Sara W., & Sarah H., who all knew it was bound to happen sooner or later.

Oh my... Those are bad.

1) "Mr. Wazowski, your plastic surgery is complete. We couldn't make you a four-eyes, but now your'e a tricyclops. And we gave you another mouth inside your mouth, so that when your career with Pixar is over, you can work in the "Alien" franchise. We hope you like the uni-brow. We thought it was a nice touch."
2) What kind of cat and mouse game is this? If this is Hello Kitty, this has to be one of the lamest undercover disguises anyone could dream up just to infiltrate the Mouseketeers.
3) We have now come to the place in our motorcycle nature ride where we find the orange-plumed banana birds performing their elaborate mating rituals.
4) If that's what this is supposed to be, then this isn't a Jewish cake. Frankly, it looks more like a torso that was put on its stomach, and someone inserted a candle into the poor thing's butt hole. I guess they were trying to light farts.

I knew I'd forgotten something. In light of all the stick figure pictures, I wanted to say, "Poor john, (the hubby of Jen). To paraphrase Monty Python, 'his head's fallen off. We'll get you another.' "

Perfect candle placement on that last one.

I suppose the lesson here is that the way to get cakes without penises is to actually order one! I might be able to possibly sort of see it, except for that dark pink patch at one end. My first thought was that that was where it was amputated from the body, but that doesn't quite work either. In any case, the candle placement looks painful.

I asked The Squire what he thought that last cake was supposed to be. "A female torso?" Nope. The top one doesn't resemble anything either of us have ever seen!

December 7, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterLady Anne

Well, the last one does sort of look like a bone...

December 7, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterKate

Maybe they said "boner"?

December 7, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterElissa

Ummmm, it looks like you got a little, no a lot of something going on there, you might want to get that looked at.

But what’s wrong with the “penis”? The big red splotch on the.......testicle? I guess?

December 7, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterDeb

I love the addition of the curious kitties. Made my day!

December 7, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterVamprayne

I am assuming the cake decorator is an innocent soul who has yet to see an actual penis...

December 7, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterShannon

These were clearly made by folks who had never seen Mike Wisowski, Hello Kitty, flames, or male genitalia. Oh my.

December 7, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterMoira

it DOES look more like a torso with a candle out it's butt! Maybe if they had used a sparkler? *head tilt*

December 7, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterRenee

we need a way to tell the cats apart please.

December 7, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterRenee

Maybe that "penis" is made with a bone or torso-shaped pan-wow? It also looks like it is lying on one of those fuzzy bathroom rugs and, if you enlarge the photo, the red splotch on the "testicle" looks like it reads "Happy Birthday." Ewww!

The last one: do you feel a burning sensation when you go to the bathroom?

December 7, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterJules

John (thoj), another great stick figure post! The whole family-perfect.
On Mike Wazowski's cake the wreckorator couldn't even get the flotsam correct? That's pretty sad.
Hello Not-Kitty. Are those Oreo eyes?
Poor Sterling, he got Harley-Davidson flotsam and "Attack of the Mutant French Fries".
That is clearly the product of the Bone-Wow Pan. Apparently borrowed from the shop next door: Pet Treats A-Go-Go.

Uncooked chicken drumstick???

December 7, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterLadyElven

That dark splotch looks suspicious. I believe the penis cake has a sexually transmitted disease.

December 8, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterHeidi

Oh that last cake had me laughing. Lol they can make poo wang turkeys from hell but when it comes to the real deal they make what looks to be a very pale chicken bone. They can't say they don't know what they look like either lol.

With all the unintentional penises we see here, one would think bakers get it right when they're ASKED to make a penis... Alas....

December 8, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterFrankN.Stein

Idk about the cakes, but I love the stick kitties! 🐱🐱
