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? ;)

Sure, Why Not: If Clown Cakes Were Super Heroes

It's International Clown Week, gang, which means it's time to again remind you that I used to be a clown. Yep, white face, balloon animals, the works.

Now, I realize my colorful past may disturb you, but keep in mind I did it for the children.
Specifically the ones who ran away screaming at the mere sight of me, since the ones who ran AT me were a lot more likely to go for the groin.

Those were interesting times. Interesting, painful times.

Anyway, since clowns always get a bad rap, today I'm introducing some little-known clown superheroes. That's right: clown superheroes. Aw yeah. Prepare to be WHELMED.

Starting with...

The Incredible Bulk!

His enemies will never get HIM into a slimming A-line.


Bozo Constrictor:


Sneaky Pickles:

Able to scale tall buildings... in really big shoes.


The Clown With No Super Powers But Who Has A Cool Car:

Fun Fact: There are actually 42 clowns in there.


The Invisible Clown:

Don't ask to see his levitating donut trick. JUST DON'T.


The Amazing Spider-Bozos:

Their signature move is sneaking up on children from above and lobbing balloon animals at them.


Bumble Bug:

Because the Transformers kicked him out.


The Meringue Magneto:


And of course, Mr. Incredible:

He experiences a lot of burning sensations, IF you know whatta mean.


Thanks to Kristen M., Brittany, Laura S., Laura W., Michelle B., Robin C., Steve & Carisa, Mary R., & Ed for the SUPER funny business.

Anything that leads to more icing being piled on a cake is automatically fine with me!

That last one - we've been here before. I can't believe wreckorators keep doing this. No wonder he looks so happy!

Butt swirls??

Note to world: "whelmed" is a word, and it means pretty much the same as overwhelmed.

The meringue magneto is a whole new kind of cupcake cake. Does it look like he defeated Edward Scissorhands? or maybe got Edward Scissorhands to defeat himself? Seriously, what are all those black lines?

And the line that will make me smile all day "...levitating donut trick"

The Sneaky Pickles cake is kind of cute and now I'm worried about myself.

August 3, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterMary-Lynn

I do believe I snuckled (that would be a combination of snickered and chuckled) at the Invisible Clown.
…He does the levitating bagel trick, too, FYI.

Pretty sure Meringue Magneto used to work for Spy Vs. Spy, as well.

The rest of these…I'm originally from Chicago, so I'm naturally wary of clowns, so I'm just gonna go over here if that's okay (*hides in corner*).

Mr Inedible....

Does anyone besides me see the eyes in the backround in the last picture? It looks like cookie monster is lurking in the bakery (maybe he's looking for cookies).

August 3, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterR.

These are a collection of the absolute ugliest cakes I have ever seen.
Just ....

The sputtering giggly noise I made when the meaning of "levitating donut trick" sank in scared my cats.

Well done. :D

Young Justice fan?

Here I was expecting IT clown terrors.. now I am just laughing my butt off at the last clown. The flames must hurt lol.

August 4, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterArlene Marie

I also think Sneaky Pickles is cute, Mary-Lynn. At least, I would not take it back if I had ordered it.

The invisible clown reminds me of Mr. Potato Head in Toy Story 3, when he used a tortilla for his body. :)

August 5, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterMichelle

Sneaky Pickles is going to need a chiropractic visit soon!

August 5, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterChicago

now i know why people are afraid of clowns.

August 6, 2018 | Unregistered Commenterarchersangel

Is there actual cake inside of the Bozo Constrictor, or is that just a big mound of frosting?
