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? ;)

Happy No Pants Day!

[Note: John says I have to put a little warning on today's post, so: warning.]


[running in]

Guys! It's No Pants Day*! Quick! TAKE OFF YOUR PANTS!!

(*Or as we professional bloggers call it, "Friday.")

[ripping off velour track suit pants]


Now, I'm just going to plop down on the couch...


...and then I'm going to remember that our couch is leather. COLDCOLDCOLDCOLDCOLD!


While I wait for the feeling to return to my lower half, let's take a look at some cakes that are also missing pants:

I'm gonna go out on a limb here and guess Susie likes cheetahs, Twilight, and black string licorice.


Remember, it's rude to stare.

Unless the cake starts it.




That awkward moment when you can't tell if your birthday cake is supposed to be a turn-on or an insult.


Oh, I just remembered: our friends across the pond call underwear "pants." Oops! Haha! Well, don't you worry, my friends: I've got you uncovered:

Just tell your kids it's a flower... growing out of a boulder... getting a shot in the a$$.


Thanks to Lisa M., Brandi H., Rinat, and Sarah F. for dancing with the devil in the full moon light. Now, who wants to pry me off this couch? Anyone? Anyone? Guys?

Man, I really need to stop reading this while eating breakfast!

May 4, 2018 | Unregistered Commentersvf

$299 ...for a butt plug.
Is that a syringe ?
I love avante gaurde s***

May 4, 2018 | Unregistered Commentersendingtheclowns

That is one deep-ass shot. Or...deep ass-shot.

May 4, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterClassic Steve

Have these bakers ever seen a butt? Like, say, that last one?

May 4, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterKaren

Is that first one supposed to be Fred Flinstone without pants? And without a head.

May 4, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterR.

The first one looks like they need to get some sun. The second one, who else sees a monkey here? The third one, a potato in a bikini. Maybe it's a spud muffin. The last one, with the plug and the syringe, one way or another, someone is stuck up.

May 4, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterMike

I'm sorry, but the more that I look at that second one, the more I keep seeing a monkey wearing a bow tie!

May 4, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterJilara

The "flower" cake is a steal at 299 yen! That's roughly $3.

May 4, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterAnna B

Is #3 really a turkey?

May 4, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterTrevor

the second cake looks like the face of a gorilla with some sort of strange blue scarf/tie/neck wrap sort of thing.

May 4, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterTY

Okay, is it just me... the second one, with the Union Jack underwear.. if you look at just the chest... doesn't it look like Homer Simpson is under his skin??

May 4, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterLori

I can't decide if the face on the second one is ET or Homer Simpson.

May 4, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterSandi

Not only is the 2nd cake staring at me but I think it’s Homer Simpson

May 4, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterAnn

Is it me, or does the second cake look like it has Homer Simpson implanted in it?

May 4, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterJosh

Um... that second one.... Is that supposed to be a male or female torso? This being Cake Wrecks, I rather suspect that the answer to my question is "yes."

May 4, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterJennifer

Am I the only one who sees Bart Simpson in the second cake?

May 4, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterRabbit Mommy

I can't un-see Homer Simpson in the second cake

May 4, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterMary Poppins

@sendingtheclowns note the wording is Asian so it will not be dollars. The symbol signifies it is yen, which makes it $2.74 US ;-)
Downunder underwear is called underwear, undies or budgie smugglers.
Pants are trousers.
Shorts are short trousers, not underwear.
That second cake becomes quite Simpsonesque the more you look at it (and it looks back).
I also wonder if the Brazilian one (referring to the country, not the lack of hair) is a political statement.

May 4, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterCaryl

Why no Star Wars cakes?

May 4, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterMel

This was just the laugh I needed after a ridiculous day teaching. Maybe I’ve been around tweens too long but that second one reminds be of Homer Simpson.

Now where did I leave my wine glass.....

May 4, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterValGal

Is that a monkey's face wearing a Union Jack on its chin?

May 4, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterLady Anne

That second one--are we sure that's not Homer Simpson with, um, a really unusual bib?

No, but seriously, that's a torso? That's a tor-say-it-ain't-so.

May 4, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterYet another Jen

The second one looks like Homer Simpson wearing a necktie.

May 4, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterBlondeNBlue1

I'm pretty sure that second one is a monkey head. That was decapitated and placed in a speedo. Those aren't abs, they're a mouth.

May 4, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterBorg

The final cake is 299 YEN (japan) or YUAN (China). That translates to $2.74, so I'm guessing China, not Japan. Less than $3.00 seems like a reasonable price for that m-ass-terpiece.

May 4, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterNanalettie

Is that Homer Simpson on that guy's chest?

May 4, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterNobodee Home

I don't even mind the staring nipple on Union Jack up there, all I can think about is the unfortunate decision to have bulging mounded boob-pecs, bulging, mounded abs, bulging mounded thighs, and a concave crotch.

May 4, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterTyler

Is it really $299??? For getting a shot in the butt? Lol the doctor probably charges that much but wow that cake lol.

May 5, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterArlene Marie

That 299 Yen or Yuan. The print is so small it’s hard to tell

May 5, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterCynthia

The second one looks like Homer Simpson

May 5, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterAmy

Cake#2 is surprisingly concave in strategic places. I dont know whether to be relieved or disturbed.

May 5, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterZeenia

Is it just me, or is Homer Simpson about to emerge from that torso? And is that torso a tragic victim of genital mutilation? I'm just going to hope it was beheaded first, and the other horrors occurred after it could no longer feel pain. If not, someone plunge a knife through its heart, quick! <shudder>

May 5, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterAA

The "Union Jack" one looks like Homer Simpson. D'oh!

May 5, 2018 | Unregistered Commenterdutchgirl

Great googly moogly!

May 5, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterMudmusher

The second chest looks like Homer Simpson's face. Frightening!

May 6, 2018 | Unregistered Commenterlinnee

Homer Simpson? I see ET pushing his way through that oddly sculpted torso... I think he needs to phone home!

May 6, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterKelly W

That last one has a tag in what looks like standard Chinese. Price in yuan would be just under USD50, while in Taiwan dollars it'd be just over USD10. But what made me do a double-take is the caption, which translates to "Pregnant Mommy." So why the syringe?!

May 7, 2018 | Unregistered Commenterdoraemon

That’s the deepest intramuscular injection I’ve ever seen. I’ve heard of hubbing the needle, but yowzer, they buried the sucker!
