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? ;)

Fairy Tale Endings

WARNING: Today's post is not family friendly, on account of it being a little TOO "family friendly." IF you knowwuddamean.


Ah, children. So innocent. So sweet.

So blissfully unaware of how much their castle cakes look like a gaggle of man cannons.

I believe this is from the Netherlands. (Eh? Eh?)

Oh, oh! OR, if it were in Troy, then this would be a TROJAN castle.
(Get it? See what I did there? BOOYA.)


I'd say this customer got royally shafted:


I mean, just look at that top tower: totally cockeyed!

[Pow! Zam! Whap!]


Still, this next castle cake really can't be beat:


Yep, that's some stiff competition, right there. Definitely has the upper hand.

[Rat-a-tat-tat! BzzzING! Ker-PLUEY! Eckie Eckie Eckie Eckie piTANG RoooBoing ezrowsurh]


Lauri, Lisa M., & Sarah H., they say "a man's home is his castle."

Frankly, I can't top that.

Also, 3 geek points if you correctly ID the Eckie Eckie line.

On second thought, let's not go to Camelot. It is a silly place.

What the heck happened to the first cake? Minus the, er, towers, that could have shown up on Sunday Sweets. Inquiring minds want to know....

TY Jen for a post that makes one stand up and take notice (insert smirk here). My guess on the Eckie Eckie line would be from Who Framed Roger Rabbit. That would be the sound effect, when Roger sees Jessica and his eyes bug out. Just a wild guess here and I'm probably wrong, but what the heck. :-)

Good grief! Do these bakers not SEE what they have created? My eyes hurt. And clearly, that quote is from Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

"We are now no longer the knights who say Ni!"

July 10, 2017 | Unregistered Commenternancileigh

Pretty sure that's a line from Monty Python and the Holy Grail... spoken by the Knights Who Say "Ni".

July 10, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterAmy

Monty Python and the Holy Grail. =)

July 10, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterJennie

The knights who until recently said "Ni!"

July 10, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterBuggie

Goodness gracious! Great nonballs of ......well.
Those could hit a doorbell from .....again, well....Ding Dong, Avon coming? (I MEANT "calling". ...yeah.)
Ready? Set? Fire...?
Okay, enough outta me.
Anyone else? Shoot!

July 10, 2017 | Unregistered Commentersendingtheclowns

Oh puhh-lease, everybody knows that's from Monty Python and the Holy Grail! (Also I love the cakes and the commentary)

July 10, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterAlana Skye

You make me laugh!!!

July 10, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterWestPADad

Ni! That's all I've got.

July 10, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterMamaTread

and as someone who was recently on stage to change the girl who played that knight who formally said "Ni!" in Spam-a-lot you would have thought I would have caught that right away...
guess I was too distracted by the large cakes. ;)

btw: your Knights who say Ni! helmets are up for a Henry Award (Denver's version of the Tony Awards)!

That second one has some impressive veining. I mean vining. Deff vining.

July 10, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterRb

Even with glitter,
leaning, or flat, this image
makes adults go *SPIT*

Nice job working a Monty Python reference in there. :)

You must cut down the mightiest tree in the forest—with a herring!

We want...some PASTERIES! But not too expensive...

July 10, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterPam S.

I was unaware that a grouping of man wang was known as a gaggle. I feel like I have learned something new today, and I can put one in the win column.

July 10, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterMudmusher

These cakes are definitely happy to see us. Wink. Wink. Nudge. Nudge. Know what I mean? Say no more. ;)

July 10, 2017 | Unregistered Commentermindy1

These cakes all have cream inside, right?

That one has something blue it? could it be? Viagra?

"Man Cannons" - giggle, giggle, snort

July 10, 2017 | Unregistered Commenteraelliso

I can't believe you were able to spell out what the Knights said. Points to you!!

July 10, 2017 | Unregistered Commenterfobofobiac

I still can't believe that wreckerators aren't doing this on purpose lol.

July 11, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterArlene Marie

If your Man Cannon looks like that, you should probably see a doctor.

Also, how can you toss off
a Python reference and not link to the video???

July 11, 2017 | Unregistered Commenterclueless noob

Is "gaggle" the scientifically correct nomenclature for a gathering of man cannons?

July 11, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterFrankN.Stein

I thought the last one was a rocket... :/

July 11, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterMiss Paper

Those castles would go quite nicely with her HUUUUGE tracts of land....

July 11, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterSarahT

Clearly the Knghts who formerly said "ni".

July 12, 2017 | Unregistered Commenterbarbara

We are no longer the nights who say "Ni!"
That well endowed castle will go well with my huge... tracts of land!
