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? ;)

Disenchantment Under The Sea

I'm telling you, things just haven't been the same here since Ariel opted for a water delivery!


♫ A sea birth ain't always keener

Sometimes it's a big mistake.


There's stuff you just can't unsee there

It even upset the hake.


Just look at the fish around you

She freaked 'em out by the score!


The squid even lost an eye now -

"Don't want it anymore."


Under the sea!

[Oh my, Dory!]


What did we see?

[Under the sea!]


Childbirth ain't better,

just 'cause it's wetter

Take it from me!

Up on the shore it works OK.
Just let the doctors earn their pay!

'Cause if we're voting

 "It was revolting!"

Under the sea! ♫



Thanks to Carolann, Elizabeth G., Tiffany G., Nicole & Koren S., Angela G., Amy R., Trish L., Pon T., Chris, and James N., for not watering down their labors of love. (And, yes, the octopus is very well done... which is probably why it's creeping me out so much.)

Editor's note: Before you ask, no, we're not dissing water births. But we’re betting it really freaked out the fish…

That tentacle baby cake is amazing.

August 10, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterSkatie

Masterfully done! But seriously, what occasion calls for the last cake. Inquiring minds aren't totally sure if they want to know.

August 10, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterHeather

I'm actually kinda into pop-eyed porcupine fish.

And Cthulu baby cakes... we all knew it was a matter of time. Props to the skilled baker.
(I know Sunday Sweets is for you Jen - but a day of "not sure these should exist - but they are beautifully done" would be enjoyable.)

I don’t know exactly why, but the funniest line is “It even upset the hake!” That one made me laugh much harder than I should’ve—definitely more than the hake was laughing.

While the last one was well made, I can't think of an occasion where that would be appropriate O_o

I kind of like the big blue blobby fish cake... even if it is big blue and blobby... the octopus..? WHY would anyone want an octopus cake????

And the earwig for the day!! Under the Sea. My first reaction was to wonder if Disney made a "Little Mermaid" sequel... props for r this post.

Tentacle baby. Now I've seen it all!

August 10, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterIma

I want the one responsible for ordering a tentacle cake to explain! I wouldn't eat a slice of tentacle cake, not even if it were chocolate. I won't eat tentacles either. Yes, I have tried. More than once, more than one recipe. No need to again.

It's nice to see Sharyn is back and singing that tuna with a lot of sole. The song was well done, but I don't know if I could take any moray. Unfortunately, I think all this just gave me a haddock, and I may be feeling a bit eel. It might be so bad I'll have to have an operation - does anyone know a good sturgeon? I know I should just clam up but something just keeps urchin me on. Someone will probably say I ought to just squid it and to shad up. But the show mussel go on. So I'll keep whaling away, and yes, I'm doing this on porpoise.

By the way, don't expect crabs and lobsters to share anything with you - they're shellfish.

August 10, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterMike

That last one looks really nice.

August 10, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterTia

@mindy1: Right you are; it ISN'T appropriate. It doesn't take eight hands to change one itty bitty diaper....

August 10, 2018 | Unregistered Commentersendingtheclowns =^-.-^=

There was an urban legend of a woman who took a dip in the ocean when an octopus egg suddenly went up her uterus, and she "gave birth" to an octopus. I think it was on Mythbusters.

Mike! *slow claps* Pure brilliance!

August 10, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterKimS

I kind of like Big Blobby Blue And Purple Spikey. The octobaby is just creepy.

August 10, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterMarnie B

Well now that song is stuck in my head. And I can't stop laughing poor Ariel and poor fish lol.

August 11, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterArlene Marie

Is the one-eyed squid (gosh, that sounds dirty seeing it in print) decorated with sliced black olives?

August 11, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterNobodee Home

a tentacle baby cake? why?

really clever song parody BTW.

August 11, 2018 | Unregistered Commenterarchersangel

Hey!! I just noticed!
Welcome back, Sharyn!
Woohoo! =^~.~^=

August 11, 2018 | Unregistered Commentersendingtheclowns =^-.-^=

4th cake from the top needs to see a doctor about those lips...

August 12, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterChicago

You've outdone yourselves! Again!
