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? ;)

10 Absolutely Ridiculous Easter Cakes


"Iiiittty bitty living space."


Ever wonder why cake decorators use so much plastic flotsam?



Still, where there's a will to wreck, there is a way:

Bravo, wreckerators. BRAVO.


Because when I think of the resurrection of Jesus, I think of splattery tie-dye:

And carrots on a cross.

(I looked it up: carrots are NOT cruciferous vegetables. Dang it.)


Easter egg or old pepperoni?



Q: So how hard IS it to make an egg-shaped cake?

A: Oh, about that hard.


"Quick! To the Dimensionally Inaccurate Carrot Car, Bun-Man!"

"I'll be right behind you in the Electro Egg!!"



"It's pronounced 'Buh-THEAD.'"

"And that's MISTER Butthead to you."


Confession: I actually love these and want a dozen of my very own:

Mostly because they remind me of this:


Thanks to Holly A., Kathy B., Nicole S., Jennie, Leslie G., Molly, Stacey K., Wesley T., Dimitra S., & Jenna M. for the excuse to post that clip. (The crocodile kills me. The wiggly feet! Ah!)

Carrots. On a cross. Two carrots. On a cross. What - wh - WHY??!!!??
I never get tired of seeing those videos of the blown up animals.

1) I don't think getting out of the egg is all it's cracked up to be.
2) Easter lamb? Makes sense. Easter bear? Or Easter modern art bunny? I don't get it.
3) As my wife said, never saw a chicken angel before.
4) I can't see Jesus hanging on a carpeted cross, either. The Romans didn't strike me as giving any comfort to those they considered criminals.
5) Or maybe an Easter Alien embryo
6) Looks more like a Christmas tree. I hate to think what this baker would make a Christmas tree look like.
7) Why are there wheels on top of the car? So you can drive it on the ceilings of tunnels?
8) I guess that's one way to get "fried" chicken.
9) This probably isn't supposed to be a rabbit, but a chipmunk with a floppy-eared hat and his cheeks are stuffed full of seeds.
10) Reminds me of the Beach Boys song - "I Get a Round".

Sure that's not a Christmas tree?

MOST of them look VAGUELY-MAYBE "Easter-y" (after a snort or two of sambuca). The only "cosmic power" might be in your will to think of EATING a stale Christmas tree CCC (6th down) that snuck in posing as tommorrow's leftovers/garbage?

OMG, I love the Rollin' Safari clips!!! And I also must find a way to work "Dimensionally Inaccurate" into a conversation...

PS In ancient Times, my high school classmates used to say "It's pronounced 'Buh-THEAD," but I can't remember what that came from! I hope others say in the comments...

The third one is going to be the new Ghostbusters' monster ala the StayPuff Marshmallow Man.

That 6th one would make a decent Christmas tree!

But as an egg, not so much.

Cruciferousvegetables, hee hee hee.

I am trying to figure out tie dye and that cross with the carrots lol. No clue what Easter has to do with that but I know I won't stop laughing any time soon at the flotsam monster chick cake thing lol.

Fifth from the bottom is definitely a Christmas tree! And why are Buh-Thead’s ears bacon strips?

April 16, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterChicago

Love the chick with what can only be “jazz wings”

April 16, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterJansville

The third one reminds me of that robot power lifter thing Sigourney Weaver used in the Alien "Get away from her" scene...

Unique designs, i like that most Mister Butthead to you, thank you for sharing

April 17, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterSaheen Ros

That's not tie-dye, that is a wreckerator channeling Jackson Pollock (Convergence) before he nails those hated carrots to the tree.

(photo 10) Farewell to the ordinary meaning of chicken pot pie.

That video NEVER. GETS. OLD. It still makes me laugh until I am breathless.

Thank you for the continuing hilarity.
