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? ;)

Absolutely Ribbeting

Y'know, maybe we're being unrealistic to expect acceptable cakes EVERY time we order.

I mean, what's that expression?

"You've got to kiss a lot of frogs to fi-..."

No, sorry, I said "frog."


Try again?

Still no.


You know, frog. Green. Hops. Lives in swamps.

[long silence]


I think we both know you can do better than THAT.



We both were wrong.



Stop it.


LOOK, I just want ONE vaguely frog-like cake so I can do a kissing metaphor here. Is that asking too much?

Ew. Like ANYONE's going to want to kiss that.

Well played, bakers.

Well played.


Even though they almost made us croak, we jumped for joy when Deborah B., Kelly P., Wesley T., Loren K., Shae, Amy F., & Nicole F. sent these to our pad.

Hello, good people from CW! Long time no see... really long time.

So, anyway... here's what I saw in each caek/kek/decake/wrecake/ahemokaystraighttothepointalready

1) A pufferfish... becoming the Hulk (pretty funny, though, the idea of a Hulkfish... )

2) I'm stretching it a lot here: maybe a molar tooth... a mutant molar tooth? Eh?

3) That might be a hockey puck... and wouldn't be too surprised if it was an actual hockey puck, iced over for suckers unsuspecting clients to buy

4) Slimer's parents! Uh, hi, Mrs. and Mr... Slimer Sr.?

5) Uh, dunno what exactly it is (most definitely NOT a frog), the only thing I know is... the poor thing is bleeding from the mouth. Is there a docorator in the bakery? (If that was supposed to be the tongue... yeah, no.)

6) A new baddie for Pac-Man! Possibly Inky's brother (or cousin)

7) Of all the caeks shown here, those ones are the closest to resembling frogs! Only a little bloated... and ugly... and crazy... do we need more of those annoying things around? And those tongues... lolwut?

Please keep rocking on! Since the bakers will keep wrecking on.

That second one has so much potential. If only the decorator had looked at a picture before applying icing...

Cake one and three look like the pigs from Angry Birds.

AmNOTphibian when I say these are toadally knee-deep, knee-deep in wartthehell?! Except for #2, which is a miss but cute, this misbegotten array should all be dumped in the pond and frogotten!

All my brain can think up is what the heck do they think frogs look like? Lol I can't even spell properly anymore wreckerators are making me laugh too hard lol.

I love these, solely because early in our dating my now-husband observed that, "Nothing says 'I love you' like a squashed frog." Which is true. So if I saw one of these, I would probably purchase it immediately.

Well as the poet says: "Puddocks are nae fit they eesed tae be."

That fourth one with a Walmart-type star on the label...

... shouldn't it read Icing for 2 with White Cupcakes?
