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? ;)

It's October 1st, bakers.

You know what that means.


Aw yeeeeah. This is gonna be good.




Is that a ghost being electrocuted?




I mean... Sure! Yeah! Keep 'em coming!


Wait, what...?




Is that a nipple


what is happening

stop it


Thanks to E.L., Jack, Crickie, Alacia, Jennifer C., Tina S., Lorinda R., & Igor V. for the reminder that something wrecky this way comes. Actually, a lot of somethings. And I, for one, CAN'T WAIT. Muahahaaaaaa!

In that last Frankenstein cake, I was more concerned if that was a line of cocaine.

The most frightening thing is that people will pay real money for these monstrosities :O :O

1) Ghost octopus? Ghost tarantula? Ghost reindeer?
2) Is the ghost dentist using worms to clean teeth now? I guess it's cheap labor. And I've heard of an earworm, but an eyeworm? Does that mean he'll have a picture he'll just keep seeing over and over?
3) I think this ghost is having a bad hair day.
4) Spiderman caught Green Goblin and stuffed him in a Cake Wreck as punishment.
5) This is Frankenstein's first attempt at his monster. You can tell because of the bad hair, crossed eyes, weird mouth and the electrodes on his temples instead of his neck. He went back to the drawing board after this one.
6) Spider pumpkin, spider pumpkin,
Friendly neighborhood country bumpkin.
7) Maybe Marie is right and that's why he looks so happy.
8) This person had a really bad face lift done and the eyes are now literally in the back of their head.

I feel like I need an adultier adult after a couple of these!

Frankie's nipple has a face! And he's drooling!

I have no idea what that well done, like on purpose, last cake is about. Apparently, neither did someone else and gave the cake a fat lip!

Is that a little plastic shoe on the fourth (spider web) one?

Cake 1: "BRING ON THE HALLOWEEN CAKES!" You mean the ones from last Halloween, right?

Cake 2: Cauliflower in a football helmet – always a favorite!

Cake 3: Poor Groot…

Cake 4: Did Ken lose a green loafer?

Cake 5: It could be so many unfinished things!

Cake 6: I like this one! An abstract, Halloween-inspired and misaligned Woolly-Bear caterpillar!

Cake 7: Cripes, is that a LIGHT BULB??!!

Cake 8: Frank Zappa? Perhaps an early Devendra Banhart? I like it, regardless!

That mouth cake is the most awesome thing I've seen all week, and it's only Monday. It's creepier than any ghost, monster, or spider cake, hands down (or nose down, I suppose).

You have to admit, a nipple coming out of a guy's neck *would* be spooky...

October 1, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterYet another Jen

That last one looks sort of like it has a condom on it's uh neck or whatever the heck it is lmao. This has to be on purpose.. if not what the heck are they doing in this bakery?

I actually like the second one, in an MS Paint sort of way. And the pumpkin spider (?) is cute too.

October 2, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterBorg

Not only is there a shoe in that web, but at least one green hand reaching out of the frosting...

The face cake? That may be Svengoolie! The moustache is too long but he DOES have the stripes under his cheek, so I'l go with it.

Either way, it's weird and creepy and I like it!

All I can do is quote Wesley: What is that THING?

October 2, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterChicago

I don't think it's a shoe in cake #4 (spider webby pumpkin) - I think it's a fake green finger with a black nail. Also #7 with the nipple/light bulb: whose idea was it to put GLASS in a cake?! "Here, let me just pull that ou - oh shit, I broke it!" "No problem, just pick it out, it'll be fine." Yikes!

Nice to see Wrecktober off to such a wrecky start! I mustache you though, do you get to pick the nose on the last cake?

October 4, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterbelovedbyHim

That second one must be Papyrus from Undertale realizing he loves gummy worms.
