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? ;)

Anybody Wanna Peanut?

[WARNING: Very mild adult humor ahead. Hide the children-folk!]


John and I like to chat via Instant Messaging when we're across the house from each other. (Because AMERICA.) Below is our actual IM conversation from last night over today's cake:


Me: Well, this earned a triple-take: [attaches photo]

John: What is that??

Me: You'll figure it out.

John: Is it a number 1?

Me: Noooo...

John: Seriously, what the what?

Me: Look closer.

John: I literally have no idea.

Me: *sigh* It's Thor's hammer, ok?

[short pause]

[loud guffaws echo from the other room]

[short pause]

John: Ok, so why the heck is there a peanut on the tip???

Me: I have no idea. Maybe he's a Princess Bride fan?


And before you all mention it, yes, this IS a pretty great cake... minus the surprisingly obscene topper, of course. Personally I like to think that Clayton is just a fan of the Avengers and Princess Bride.

Thanks to Melanie K. for letting me hammer home another dong joke.

Wow. That cake should NOT be served to children. ROTFLMAO!

September 4, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterMaryO1230 was so close to being a Sunday sweets worthy cake. This is much more amusing XD

Maybe Clayton is a Dr. Horrible Fan too... "The hammer is my penis!"

Is it just me or does Iron Man's face(?) look like it knows exactly what's going on?

I was so sure it was supposed to be a bicycle pump. I just wasn't sure why.

I am certain that Loki was behind the Mjolnir design for this cake. Because Loki.

I think the “peanut” is supposed to be the leather loop at the end of the hammer it just looks terrible.

Actually, looking at it a second time I just realized the Iron Man layer makes it look as if the Hulk is wearing a one piece bathing suit...

One doesn't get a dirty mind until one reaches puberty. Now we know there's a part of John that hasn't grown up.

John, do NOT let go of your inner child, ever!

Oh, I get it. From the bottom up, you’ve got Cap, Iron Man, Hulk and Samuel L Jackson’s Nick Fury. Nicely played baker. Nicely played.

"John: Is it a number 1?"
Well, you use it for doing number 1.
