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? ;)

You Say Hello, And I Say Goodbye

The arrival of a new baby is usually a time of joy and celebration.


"Well, the stork was busy, so we figured we'd just chuck the lil' tyke out around 30,000 feet. Why? Is that a problem?"


You know, people are always talking about the sweet little toes and fingers and stuff, but you want to know the CUTEST part?

"Jus' wookit dat widdle ootsey wootsey skulley wulley!"


"Hey, anyone else think Julie's looking a little tense today?"

"It's all downhill from here, kid.





"We call this one the 'Tub of Love:'"

"What do you mean, you're not supposed to put babies in full bathtubs?

"Ok, ok, FINE."





Thanks to Elizabeth S., Marisa T., Anne J., Emily L., & Jilissa K. for throwing up the baby with the bath water.


Oh, throw OUT?

Um... sure, ok, thanks for that, too.

The ONE and only rationale for cake #2 MIGHT be that the child was born Nov. 1st, and the parents are paying homage to the Dia de los Muertos, but…come-on…!

What possible explanation is there for the last one? I need to know! Quick, someone make up something fast.

1) This is one of the storyboards for the Incredibles. That's Jak Jak after escaping Syndrome and he's waiting for Dad, (Mr. Incredible), to throw Mom, (Elastigirl), to catch him.
2) Why would Skeletor name his kid Presley? Wouldn't Bones be better?
3) Is it just me, or does Mom seem happy to get rid of the little tyke? Maybe this is the island version of Moses as a baby.
4) Maybe this was one of those underwater births and Mommy just hasn't come up for air yet.
5) Which is worse, leaving the kid in a tub full of water, or letting him freeze on the cold tile floor with no towel or blanket? I think someone needs to call Children's Services. These last three are awful parents.

The "tub of love" looked more like an open casket viewing to me. Doh!

March 16, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterIma

That first bathtub looks more like a really over-the-top casket at the viewing.

Cake #3- Is this what happens when your water breaks in the tropics? Thank God for the life preserver, then.

March 16, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterVernaCake

Is cake #3 supposed to be some subtle (with a capital "B") comment about mom's water breaking?

March 16, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterKat

Why is the tub of love edged with lace, though?

That second cake made me imagine how the birthing procedure looks like in x-ray vision, as in a skeleton giving birth to a baby skeleton (TMI!)

As the mother of a metal musician, I can totally see the skull cake. Metal couple has a girl! Digging it.

March 16, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterNobodee Home

The skull is the Monster High dolls logo. Not a good choice for a baby’s cake.

March 17, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterCynthia

That one tub looks like a funeral least to me. I still wonder if half of these bakers are trying to scare people from even wanting kids the way they make these lol.

March 17, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterArlene Marie

I actually like the skull cake. My goddaughters first pair of baby shoes had skull and crossbones on them, courtesy of her goddess mother😁

March 17, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterPaganduck

I think the tub is supposed to be a bassinet. A very large bassinet. Or a casket. Ugh

March 17, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterCeeJayDee

I would like to note that first baby is CLEARLY flying United.
