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? ;)

What you see... NOT what you get.


(Change the "ride" to "wreck," and you've got a deal.)


From wedding tiers of roses...

Ooooooh. Drippy.


To rows of wedding tears:

Hershey's Syrup:
You're doing it wrong.


Here's a little Disney magic for you:


Bippity, Boppity...



Ah, but that's nothing. Want to see something REALLY wild?


This is what happens when animal print cakes feel blue:

And also kind of intestine-y.


Thanks to Jessica W., Diana B., Gina L., & Leighanne G. for the excuse to use "intestine-y." I've been holding on to that one for YEARS.

While I am impressed that all the words are spelled and used correctly in the first one, the rest are just sad.
That last one is less intestine-y and more "I let the 4 year old play with modeling clay and then sold it as a cake"-y.

Yeah, that last one. :shudders:. It looks like Play-Doh. All the blobs so clearly finger-pressed on. Appetizing!!! :vomits quietly:

Is the last one actually made of play dough?

Is that a foram crown with gem stickers on the last one?

"Wisenwig" is my new favorite word! (Now to figure out what FOR..)

While I don't really care for the "good" cake with the drippy chocolate (I dislike the plastic champagne cups stacked underneath in the pool of blood); the second drippy chocolate is so bad I envision the bride and groom stabbing through the cake with that knife after the picture was snapped.

I always wonder how much people pay for these cakes and if they get a refund or discount because they're so bad

Judging by the "intestines made with play-doh" look of that last cake, I can only guess they stuck the spots on then smushed in the rest of the fondant around it. That is so much harder and time consuming than just doing it properly!
