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? ;)

Getting A Bad Vibe Here

Attn Parents: This post is not appropriate for young children. Or adults, really, but I won't tell if you won't.  

Since I know you're curious about the behind-the-scenes workings here at Cake Wrecks, I thought I'd provide you with the actual dialogue between me and John while discussing a cake.

This cake:

Ready? Here goes.

Me: [calling to other room] "Hey, you don't know any vibrator puns, do you?"

John: [crossing the distance in approximately .7 seconds] "What are you working on?"

Me: "Oh, it's this one. I've got the 'bad vibe' thing going for the title, but now I'm at a loss. What else do you call these things? Do you know any euphemisms?"

John: [staring] "What's it supposed to be?"

Me: "Beats me. It just looks like a giant pink finger."

[both of us pause]

Me: "Hey, I bet that's one."

John: [unable to speak due to laughter]

John: [getting his breath back] "You HAVE to write this down."

Annnnd that's about it. By the way, I feel this is an excellent time to mention that, yes indeedy, we actually get paid now to do this. Living' the dream, people. We're livin' the dream.

Oh, and neither Lis B. nor I have any idea what that cake is supposed to be. However, since it was in the "kids cakes" gallery on the bakery's website I'm guessing it's probably some perfectly innocent character from a cartoon or something. No doubt many of you are preparing to point this out in the comments, too, so that the rest of us look like pervy malcontents. So, you know, I've got that to look forward to.

Livin' the dream, man. Livin'. The. Dream.

It's... A ladyfinger?

That does NOT look like any kids cartoon character that I've seen. lol.

August 23, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterLauren

Your not alone...the only thing i got is B.O.B.

No clue what that cake is suppose to be either lol.

August 23, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterKatherine

I have no idea either. It looks like a pink tongue depressor to me.

August 23, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterNboroGirl

It looks vaguely like the YoGabbaGabba pink character. Vaguely. Sort of like a monochrome pink dildo vs. the real thing.....

August 23, 2017 | Unregistered Commentermaroongrad

Prince Charles, reincarnation wish fulfilled.

August 23, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterValarie

Surf board? Nail file? lol

August 23, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterJV

It looks like a pad to me. A pad only women wear.

It's a character from an Asian silent cartoon called "Larva."
This is the female love interest, who is, you know, a larva. ;)

August 23, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterL

The face of Boe gets kinky?

August 23, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterMaya

I'm going with worm or caterpillar. With all the flowers and butterflies around it, it's going into it's chrysalis soon to become a butterfly. A very large pink worm wearing rouge and lipstick with eyebrows and eyelashes.

Yeah, I got nothing.

August 23, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterAllegra

Ooooh, Valarie! ROFL
I've got nothing, either.

August 23, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterKaren

Looks like a maxi pad to me.

August 23, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterJenny

I'm going with worm. Does it have a...a left ear?

August 23, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterU.B.

Maybe a butterfly without its wings? Like maybe the wings are made of something else to be attached later? Or a cocoon? With eyes? Yeah, definitely a cocoon with eyes.

August 23, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterLiz

Maybe it's supposed to be a number 1? For a little girl's 1st birthday? But why? Why the creepy eyes and 50's-style rosy cheeks that for some reason give me the heeby jeebies? Like everyone had Rubella back in the day. Or maybe it's a dildo. Who knows?

August 23, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterFerralyn

I agree with Katherine. Definitely looks like B.O.B., but not the Builder!

August 23, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterPete

I'm seeing happy suppository more than I am surprised vibrator, but I think they'd both work here.

August 23, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterMeowinMoxie

I think it's supposed to be the number 1 from a kids show called nu mberjacks

August 23, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterCp

The closest kids' thing I can think of is the Sunnypatch Friends spider family. The show hasn't been on in a while, and the spider dude "Spiderus" is the villain of the show as is plainly evidenced by his British accent.

August 23, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterLiz

pantyliner. *nods sagely*

August 23, 2017 | Unregistered Commentermara

It looks like a Pink Twinkie. Maybe it's a Lickitung from Pokémon Go! or Lumpy Space Princess from Adventure Time? But LSP is not pink, she's purple.

August 23, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterPenny W

Maybe it's a "you're a woman now" celebration cake. Looks like a maxi pad to me.

August 23, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterJules

and you know out there somewhere is the wreckonator who made this going "IT IS SO CLEARLY A _____"

August 23, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterRenee

"Moisturize me"

August 23, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterWendy13131

The 'ear' thing on the right hand side?? I got nothin.

August 23, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterDi F

Is that a handle in the top right or does the "darn thing have wings?"

August 23, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterAnotherJennyz

Not a Popsicle??

August 23, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterTW

My wee one suggested Peppa Pig. Perhaps as a sausage? (no pun intended)

August 23, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterDakiara

My first thought was ladyfinger

August 23, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterValerie

Cassandra? Is it Cassandra?

I'm at a loss otherwise.

Female USB stick drive….

Ok I'm done…

August 23, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterIsolder74

Looks like something you'd find off pure romance.

August 23, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterShelly

It looks like Number One of the Numberjacks. It's usually purple, but it does look a lot like that.

August 23, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterBernadette

Well, *I* thought it was a tampon, since on my screen it doesn't really look pink.

August 23, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterKim

I got nothing, but I do agree w/everyone's suggestions. Especially the maxi-pad ones.😅🙃

August 23, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterMaryO1230

Oh, my goodness, just passing through, I think you've got it!

August 23, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterNobodee Home

It's character from Numberjacks, a British animated tv show for children on CBeebies.

August 24, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterHanzy

Valarie is my favorite person in the world right now.

August 24, 2017 | Unregistered Commenterdeb

Whatever it is I think it is cute and well done.

August 24, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterAlison in Indiana

I think this post can really create a buzz!

August 24, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterStacy

And I thought that could be a tampon but I am still dying of the thought of vibrator. Sheesh wreckerators.

August 25, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterArlene Marie

It's neither the larva thing NOR the Numberjacks. I've looked at both and ...NOPE.

August 27, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterCoffeeiv

Someone went to an awful lot of trouble and added a lot of detail to make something so unrecognizable.

August 28, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterClark

A giant tic tac? Trying to get our
minds out of the gutter, here, lol!

October 3, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterCathy

I think it is fair to say this is meant to be numberjacks. its a similar colour and style, not sure what all the other effort was for. Still funnier to think it was a purple finger vibrator

October 10, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterSimon

It kind of looks like a coffin.
