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? ;)

Tell The Doctor To Bring His Sonic Screwdriver

I understand, bakers. Sometimes it's an innocent mistake!

Maybe you really tried to make a basketball court:

And it turned out a little wangish.

We get it.


Maybe this was literally the 327th cake you've made today, and maybe your space shuttle...

...came out more like a shuttlecock.



And so WHAT if your baseball bats lean a little to the left?

Sure, they're reminiscent of some other types of wood, but chalk that up to a swing and a miss!


I'm not buying it with these next ones, bakers.
Because these...

...are NOT bunny feet.


This... NOT a candle.


And no matter how much you grease my palm, bakers, THIS: NOT a TARDIS.


Let's get a grip here.

Everybody knows: if you're not up to the task, then you call in the Master baker.
Otherwise you're just gonna blow it!


Thanks to Amelia B., Christa L., Katie G., Nicole, Sara W., & Catherine B., who agree that light bulb thing on the tip looks... uncomfortable. And that it must be really cold in there.

Many thanks for "sounding" off about the Tardis cake, which, by the way, is looking a little drippy.

COLD? COLD??? That thing is a coccicle!
(, maybe there shoulda. been a "k" in there....)

On that first one, I think I know how this baker's mind works. He's probably been watching too many basketball games where the announcers kept talking about "dribble penetration".
On the second one, someone needs to call the Johnson Space Center and tell them their missing "rocket" has been found.
And on the last one, if that's not a Tardis, then the thing next to it isn't a Dalek, either. It looks more like something out of the S & M genre.

Maybe the bakers were a little cockeyed? :P

I lost it at “get a grip”. Coffee is good unless it’s trying to come out your nose. Just saying.

Third one from the top- “poo wangs” are not just for Thanksgiving anymore!

"So if you think you'd like a sonic screw-
driver like I'm holding in my hand.
You will have to let me in,
Don't worry child it's not a sin.
Hold on to my temporal drive,
I'll take you for an epic ride!

And you know it's...
Bigger on the inside,
It's bigger on the inside.
And once you've felt it inside
I'm sure that you'll agree.
It's bigger on the inside
But don't take it from me,
Once you've felt it inside you will see."

Baker No. 3 should stick with bar cookies. Those to the right of the woody cupcakes look absolutely delish.

The "bunny feet" remind me of Cheech and Chong's E.T. - the Extra Testicle.
