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? ;)

The Great Easter Fleecing (aka, Better Run, Buns)

Oh, how the Easter tables have turned, sweet cheeks.

That's right, while you bunnies were off terrorizing chicks, someone bigger and badder moved to the top of the bakery chain.


So now it's YOUR turn to face eggs-termination.

Not to mention more of my Easter puns.


...for the LAMB-ENTATION.




You've heard the expression, "I'll have your guts for garters?"

These sheep will have your mug for a mini dress.


And they'll give "carrotbrain" a whole new meaning:

Ouch. Talk about an earful.


Don't be fooled by those cutesy bows and flowers:



Ewe better believe it.


Of course, some of you bunnies could use a little face re-arranging.

I mean, what the heck, Carl?

And what kind of a bunny name is Carl?


This isn't to say lamb cakes are evil, of course:

...they're just grumpy.


Well, except Vladof.

He's definitely evil.


Thanks to Lisa H., Mary B., Shelley R., Debby C., Elizabeth S., Dawn F., Jessica S., Scott G., Sharon L., Julie C., & Suli C., who bet Vladof is one of those shifty smoking lamb cakes. He's got that air of mystery about him.

I'm not so sure about Vladoff. He seems more jaunty than evil to me. OK, I see what you mean- those slit eyes are evil. But the placement of the hat is still jaunty, no?

The next to last sheep....really rocking the chocolate lipstick fad, I see. I'm in awe of her stoic, "We are not amused" spite of her unfortunate impalement. ...which lends an almost regal air to the barnyard. Long live the Cream!

Wreck #6, first thought that came to my head? Is "I'm a wild and crazy bunny!" (showing my age with the Steve Martin comedy bit am I ???) So it's either supposed to be a bunny from behind, carrying the carrot in it's mouth, OR, a bunny that is so ashamed of his own 'carrot' he covered it up with shaving cream. Second day in a row, I spit coffee on the keyboard at work. Ya think I would have learned by now right? don't care so worth it to get my daily cakewreck fix!

"Carl" is actually Rasputin's bat sidekick from the "Anastasia" animated movie:

The second bunny looks like Salacious Crumb, Jaba the Hut's sidekick..

The bottom 2/3 of the second cake is actually pretty. Now if we just chop off the evil bunny head...

You are so fun! And so cool.
Love this whole post!

Nevermind the carrot through the head. What about those pink penis ears on that poor bunny, haha?!

April 14, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterChristy

OMG, wreck #2 is Salacious Crumb

What are those Joan Crawford eyebrows on that first lamb?!!!? Someone's been watching too much "baby Jane"

That seventh picture isn't a lamb. It's a Koala in a bubble bath, the Australian symbol of Easter. No, really. HONest.

It is a shame that they destroyed the second cake with that bunny head. The other layers were gorgeous. Now it just looks like a piƱata head of a rabbit on top.

I knew it!! I knew the lamb cakes were coming so now I am in my fort waiting for them to disappear lol. I could tell the lambs were about to start terrorizing the bakeries just by how evil the bunnies looked. I am staying hidden til after Easter lol.

What part of a lamb is neon orange?

Cake number 2 is right out of The Curse of the Were Rabbit, if any of you are Wallace and Gromit fans. It was intended to look that weird. Not sure if that counts as a fail.

Guts for garters? Yikes, this is the creepiest Easter collection. I mean, since when do sheep (#3) have eyebrows? And what kind of head is on #7? My guess is Easter O'possum, notice the large nocturnal eyes!

April 15, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterRosie

wreck #4..seems to be saying you will not eat me and I refuse to go and are those shamrock cup cakes as well ?

April 15, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterPat-a cakes

The bunny face on the gingerbread man is cool, man. Look at its little goatee.

Oh my God. I'm sitting on a plane before takeoff laughing to myself OUT LOUD. Thank heaven it's Southwest.
