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? ;)

Easter EGGcellence

Ok, bakers, huddle up!

Now, listen: Easter is coming. That means a lot of long hours, hard work, and painstaking effort on your part to ensure we make some of the most beautif...BWAHAHAHA!!


[wiping eyes] Sorry, sorry! I really thought I'd get through that with a straight face this year. Heehee!

Right: start your airbrushes! I'll see you back here in five.




Nice aim on those jelly beans, Jim!



And good call on the "Peep Peep." That'll clue 'em in it's not a swan or a banana or something.



Not bad, but I can still see a little icing. Can we get a little more plastic in here?


And speaking of plastic, here's a great recycling tip:


St. Patrick would be proud.


And remember, bakers: the more plastic, the less time, skill, and hassle!

I made this one in 15 seconds.

With my feet.

(Aaaand that'll be $14.99, please. Cha-ching!)

And lastly, I don't actually know what this is...


...but it looks like a really efficient use of time. So let's make a few dozen more.



Thanks to Stephanie J., Angela M., Alexandra M., Shay K., Tony D., Diana Y., & Stephanie R., who think that's supposed to be a bunny rabbit.


[staring in stunned silence]

Well, one thing's for sure: You're not getting a Peep out of me.

The tip used on the Cross cake...I get it, more FPS (frosting per second)=more time to wreck cakes...but...
No matter what color you pipe, it LOOKS LIKE POO.
Every time.
No exceptions.

1) It's either the breast cancer awareness bunny, or an alien.
2) Hmm! These look like sperm. And bunnies are prolific breeders. Is there a theme here?
3) It's Puff's more colorful brother, Peep the Not-so-Magic Dragon.
4) The Tortoise and the Hare got married and this is the result.
5) Looking at this wreck makes me very cross.
6) I thought Pi Day was already past. Maybe it's a leftover.
7) One of the Easter Bunny's progeny is trying to keep this ostrich egg warm by wrapping it in a blanket.

I'm pretty sure the last one is an Easter egg. Part of the cake isn't even frosted. No sense buying it then.

Is the $14.99 one a recycled Pi Day cake? ....are there bakers who make Pi Day cakes instead of Pi Day pies? (yes. I'm sure there are.)

Do these bakeries go out and hire the most lazy people who apply for the job?

Now I'm gonna be hearing "Banana Swan" to the tune of "Bananaphone" inside my head all day. Great.

March 26, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterVasilisa

I think the last one is either an egg or a sheep

The yellow thing: I didn't realize they made misshapen seahorse Peeps.

Also, I think the pi sign is supposed to be a bow. From the unhappiest gift ever (what color is that, "Blargh"?), but I think it's a bow. Just don't take a bow over it, baker.

That last cake must be a shrunken bunny head cake or some weird concoction only the wreckerators would know lol.

March 27, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterArlene Marie

If your plastic bunny heads are blue, WHY would you make the bodies pink??

March 27, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterSeabird

"You're not getting a 'Peep' out of me." HA-HA-HA

Speaking of Peeps, I also thought the yellow "peep" cake looked like a dragon...

The last cake looks like a purple Easter egg to me, with a bunny on it.

I keep expecting that "Peep" to begin singing "Inka Dinka Doo". That's

Th idea of a color 'Blargh" tickles me silly.
