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? ;)

Not That Long Ago, In A Bakery Far From Okay... 

In case you missed it, Jen and John just built something insane, which they ROCKED at Star Wars Celebration last weekend.

I feel like a Star Wars theme is appropriate.


Quick, Luke, use the 4rth!

(It was then Obi Wan realized getting braces was a bad idea.)


"It's as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror, and were suddenly silenced."

"...with cookies."

(Granted, there are worse ways to be silenced.)


If Han and Leia were really into puns:


"I nose."


"Luke, *I* am your Farther."

"It's kind of a long-distance thing? Like, did you get my postcards?"


"Do. Or do not. There is no try."


"Did not, oh no you did. DID NOT."


"They see me rollin'...



OK, Vader, big finale time! Show us those pearly whites!

Theeeere it is.


Thanks Rachel V., Kimberly, Cassondra R., Evelyn D., Amy E., Emily M., Heidi L., and Micaline P., you were our only hope.

The problem is that Disney is ruining Star Wars. People should support continuing the original canon. I hope you visited the Twin Suns booth.

EXCELLENT captioning as always, Sharyn. The BB8 one cracked me up. "Merry Christmas"?? LOL

That insane -something really was! I liked the whatever -it-was!
By the way, what WERE all the Cookie heads looking at? Doesn't matter; Their evidence would stand up in court about as well as THEY can.... (WHAT did I SAY??!!)

Your cosplay costume is amazing. The cakes? Not so much.

Missed pun opportunity: "THEY BB-8IN'."

The "Yoda" cake:

Dear God, what is that thing?

Gotta have a Princess Bride quote too, right??

I just don't understand The Nose. Is the groom wearing a kilt? What are the two figures to the side? Someone explain, please!

Darth Vader chewed his lip nervously, thinking "I KNEW that public speaking course was a waste of time! Maybe I'll just force-choke them."

April 20, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterSaraCVT

Doesn't the Vader cake look just an itty-bit more like a really creepy Killroy was here?

I was trying to figure out what the heck was going on with those blood-speckled, flesh-coloured things sticking out of the first/4rth cake. I finally realized they were probably candles, because there were four of them, but it probably says something for the way long-term exposure to CakeWrecks will subtly alter your brain that for a while, I genuinely thought they were fingers jutting out of the snow ("Congurtyalashoinz on you're avallanch!"), and that seemed like a completely normal wreck.

With the nose wedding cake, is the groom wearing a short pants tux?!? And can anyone figure out any sort of reasonable context or back story as to why their wedding cake would be a giant nose with the couple sitting on it?

April 20, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterIamme

Sharyn, these were great! I especially laughed out loud for the BB8 one! Hilarious!

April 20, 2017 | Unregistered Commenterlisadh

No joke, my phone was so horrified by the Yoda cake (btw, is that a hand on his head?) That it literally jumped to the next picture. On its own! It was using the 4rth.

April 20, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterJ'NaeNae

Apparently this was the story behind the nose cake?

April 20, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterJennifer

The Yoda cake is actually a gremlin that was fed after midnight and got wet.
It looks like the maker of the BB8 wants to push for another Holiday Special programme.

April 20, 2017 | Unregistered Commenterjeliecam

Jennifer, I just read that blog. I've never heard of that program, but oh! do I wish I could watch it. I probably could trust The Squire to come up with something reasonable, but then, we've been married over 40 years, so he's pretty well trained by now.

One common theme among most of the cakes here: The eyes are troubling. Very troubling.

April 20, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterNeeta

I know my memory isn't what it once was, but, I really don't remember Yoda having sticks coming out of his head. Of course, I could be mis-stake-en!

April 20, 2017 | Unregistered Commenterpat gann

I'm with you, ShyLittleSquid. I thought they were fingers poking out of the cake, then realized they were candles. Also, the nose, the groom in shorts/kilt, the two little snowmen to the side ... so many questions!

April 21, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterNobodee Home

How.. why.. nooo lol. The poor Vader cake looks frightened to even be there. Hell I would be scared with a giant Yoda behind me and Vader doesn't even see him.. yet lol.

April 21, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterArlene Marie

@Jennifer -- Thanks for the info on the beautifully constructed nose cake. OMG, what was the guy thinking? OK, the blog said what he was thinking, but why did he think it would have the desired effect. Why? Why?
