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? ;)

Just In Time For Mother's Day: Ten Uterus Cakes

This Mother's Day, why not surprise mom with something REALLY surprising?

"It's supposed to be a uterus.



Yep, what could thrill Momther more than an edible version of the thing you broke on your way out? (Er...sorry again about that, Mom.) And since uteri come in so many flavors (ew), here are nine more "inspirational" uterus cakes to really get those creative juices flowing. (Ewwwwsorry.)


Evil jester laughs at your feeble attempts to serve ice cream:

See it? SEE IT??


Hunchbacked Basketball Player Can Dribble No Longer:

Aw. Playa' got served.


Bullwinkle? Is that you?

Ok, while I agree with Bonnie Burton that everything really is better with googly eyes, I still have to draw the line at making letters out of staples. Yowch.


"But, Oh-Cakey-Goddess-of-Most-High-Snark-and-Random-Sprinkles" you're saying, because you're finally using my proper title, "What I REALLY want to see is a tiny cake crawfish inside a cake uterus!"

Well, ok, but only because you asked politely.

What's that? You want two slices? Yeesh. You're so shellfish.


Hey, remember that time when Dobby from Harry Potter tried to stifle a really, really big sneeze?

"Accio CHOOIEE!!"

(I know; that was a real "light bulb moment" for me, too.)


Gosh, all this pink is getting kind of monotonous, don't you think?

Here, this should help:

And that's how everyone learned that Jeannie was actually born a Smurf.


And now, a little "poetry:"

Q: "Why did the lady blush during her sonogram?"

A: "Because she saw a fallopian!"





Some people give their uterus a cute little pet name:

(I'm seeing a cross between a Snork and a Fraggle. Please tell me I'm not the only one.)

Lola? Aw, that's sweet.

I bet Crampy McClots-a-Lot could kick Lola's butt.


And finally, the balloon-animal uterus you never knew you needed:

You know, I never thought I'd like a uterus cake, but I've really taken a shine to this one.

OH, so THAT’S how it works!

I thought that embiggening #5 would help me understand it, or at least read the labels, but...nope.

#3 looks like a sad ghost to me...

A few weeks ago for medical laboratory week, one of my co-workers made a uterus cake and put a little plastic baby in it. XD it won first prize in the baking contest. XD

May 10, 2019 | Unregistered Commentermindy1

I can't fathom it! My mother of pearl lent me some calms just for the halibut of it.

May 10, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterSam

Offhand, I don't get the "fallopian" pun.

May 10, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterClassic Steve

That shiny uterus cake is creepy. shudder.

May 10, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterLynne

All I can think is “why “ That’s not something that belongs on a cake.

May 10, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterMM

Darn! I didn't get a cake for MY hysterectomy.

May 10, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterKaren in Michigan

At least four of those are hysterectomy cakes, right? I'm not just misinterpreting the gibberings of the wreckerators?

May 10, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterBorg

I swear I thought that last one was a lobster for a minute....

May 10, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterMPB

Looks like a few of these are related to hysterectomies? I guess there really *is* a cake for every occasion. I especially like the anatomically labeled one with the ?tiny lobster?? Inside. That last one though, reminds me too much of inflammation and hemorrhage, yikes!

May 10, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterLilysMama

Does Jeannie's cake have an icing IUD?

May 10, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterTerry

Does the blue one have an IUD? And if so... why??

May 10, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterLisa

What is that birthday one supposed to be? I'm so confused!

May 10, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterM

Ohmigawd...Lola looks like an axolotl 😂

May 10, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterTaylor

Someone pass me the eye bleach, please.

May 10, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterSue W

Oh my lord. SMH

May 10, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterSeattled2

I think the blue one has a steering wheel.

May 10, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterBKeith

Is that last one made partly out of red kielbasa?? That is disturbing...

May 10, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterKathy

Is...that a GALAXY inside #1? I know having a baby makes things...erm, roomier, but a GALAXY? REALLY?

May 10, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterJessica

Here's Dr. Karl!

@Classic Steve: fallopian ≈ fellow peeing. It's hilarious because it's so banal.

May 10, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterChristopher

@Taylor: !

May 10, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterChristopher

I can't pass the eye bleach, I'm already using it.

May 10, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterLeina

The "Bon Voyage Lola" cake reminds me of the Kool-aid man.

May 10, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterNick Meta

Oh dear me. I just laughed so loudly and so long that I scared my cats.

That last one really puts a nice twist on things.

May 10, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterKai Lowell

ClassicSteve, it's all in the pronunciation - the lady blushed because she saw a fallo (fellow) pian (peeing), ba-dum-ttssss

May 10, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterMartha

Uh...I think I'll just stick with the cookie tray, thanks.

Agreed that Smurfette uses an IUD and the last one looks like a lobster.

The "Ode to the Uterus" one, those are the prettiest fallopian tubes I've ever seen...and a sentence I never thought I'd write.

May 10, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterYet another Jen

pass me the melon baller i tire if my vision

May 10, 2019 | Unregistered Commentercynthia potts

These are all gross!!

May 10, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterKathyglo

*ahem* "And now, here's something we hope you'll really like!"

May 10, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterNerfbomb

Are these cakes for hysterectomies? Yikes I had no clue there were cakes for that.. and I think I was better off not knowing lol.

May 11, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterArleneMarie

@ClassicSteve. I think the pun is "she saw a fellow peein'". My best guess, anyway.

May 11, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterBeanieMommie

Whenever I see uterus cakes here on CW, I'm reminded of this scene from "The Wonder Years":

(@MPB - I thought the last one looked like a lobster, too!)

May 11, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterCali Kath

I didn't get a cake for my hysterectomy and based on this assortment, I'M SO GLAD!!!

May 11, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterAddie

That is neither a Fraggle, or a Snork. That's the Koolade Man! And I may never drink Koolade again.

May 12, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterJulie G

The Lola cake reminds me of the cartoon drawings on the box of Sea Monkeys.

May 12, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterAnn M

Could it be Dobby
Sneezing, or earrings on a
Flux Capacitor?
