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? ;)

John, (thoJ), did ewe have to go there? Did you have to ram this down our throats? You probably have no remorse over this and not feeling the least bit sheepish. You ought to keep a picture of this wreck in your wallet, and to keep it protected, make sure it's lambinated. The baker, meanwhile, should flee, before the authorities catch him for this crime, you know, go on the lamb. This wreck is so sad it's lambentable. And the baker should be lambpooned. Only one last thing I can say about this scary looking wreck - Sheeper's Creepers.

John (thoj) you have done it again! Perfect mashup! Hilarious. Wrecks files, LMAO. Maybe the So-Called Baker was feeling a little alienated from his staff? He/she should have phoned home before picking up the piping bag.

Dear God, what is that thing?

I just screamed the "f" word out loud when I saw that.

How do you get icing to be that colour? How? How do you get exactly that pale yellowing grey that is otherwise only seen when an unwanted oyster has been left sitting in the fridge for four days, or maybe when my grandmother was boiling cabbage mercilessly into submission? Seriously, how? What combination of food tints produces this? It's a form of backward genius to achieve it, sort of idiot savant, but without the savant bit.

I was super into big cats as a kid, so my mom convinced the local baker to make leopard and tiger cakes for my birthday. He used lamb cake molds... I wish I had pictures but this was the '90s and we've since lost the film.

When I was s kid, many eons ago, we made a lamb cake at Easter. And even tho I don’t have particularly great decorating skills, white icing and coconut usually did the trick,along with raisin eyes and nose. It was semi-recognizable as a lamb.

I have no idea what that thing is in the picture above.

Love the comment from Mike above. Well done.

Even agent Mulder wouldn't go near that thing lol. I for one would love to know how they came up with this particular lamb... was it in their nightmares and they decided to share it? Lol.
