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? ;)

My Naughty Valentine

NOTE: Mildly suggestive humor ahead - so get your kids to explain it if you have any trouble.

NOTE THE SECOND: I'M KIDDING. Clear the area of innocents!



Valentines' day is a celebration of love, and of the people we love, and of the many acts of love that we all...

Oh, look, a ding-dong!

No, no, YOU rock MY world, baby. Mrowr.


I remember a psychology course back in college where they talked a lot about interpreting things like keys and swords and Owen Wilson' nose, but I have to confess I never thought much of it 'til I saw these:


 Think it's an Everlast?

 (No, I will never stop with the Men In Tights jokes. SORRY.)


Here's a tip: I'm pretty sure swords don't NEED that much of a point:


Or at least not one shaped like that, anyway.


And in case you're starting to feel like these cakes are all thrust and no parry:

 Donut worry: My lips are sealed.


I'm pretty sure you won't need Freud's help to spot this classic slip-up:

 Talk is cheap, dude. Lemme see your guitar.


You know the saying, "You have to kiss a lot of frogs to find a prince?" I only ask because reasons.


"Hey, bebeh, wanna go back to my pad? It's kind of chilly in here."

 (Not a word on the necklace. NOT A WORD.)


Of course, if you don't want to go for subtle, there's always the blatantly inappropriate approach:

 The longer you think about what demographic this cake was made for, the more uncomfortable it gets. (To say nothing of the fact that Barbie has no lower body, and her hair is getting in the icing. Ick.)


Well, whichever option you choose, I sincerely hope that you and your loved ones:

And hey, I mean that - from the bottom of my heart.

Barbarina not only looks like she's in a sleazy motel room, she's like that classic song, "Yesterday"...... where it goes," I'm not half the man I used to be..." Only ...

Come on, bakers. Yours is supposed to be such an upstanding profession. But then you go on to erect such cakes as these? Have your consciences never been pricked to see what you've made? Alas, it must be hard for you to grasp the concept. One would think you'd finally get the hint and that these kinds of cakes would finally be petering out. But then, where would Cake Wrecks be?

An arrow through a heart is a sweet Valentine's symbol, evoking Cupid and love. A sword through a heart evokes death. Know your weapon-related symbolism!

I wonder what cakes were made with the lower half of Barbie.

Please help!

You forgot to ask Barbie for a hand check. What's she doing under those covers?

The pearl necklace left me cackling like a demented rooster. Which isn't too far off. Except the rooster part.

Well enjoying vd I am sure no one wants to do lol. I really wonder if wreckerators even know what that is since they keep putting it on cakes. Scary.

@ Yet Another Jen: She's starting without Ken.

Regarding the frog, it's the PRINCESS who's been turned into a frog! She even got a boob job before her metamorphosis.
