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? ;)

Oh Mer Gosh: It's Mer-Mania!

It's Mer-May, minions, so if you're a half-fish lady with donut hair... NOW IS YOUR TIME TO SHINE.

Livin' life on the edge! Of the cakeboard.

(And judging by that camera angle, also on the ceiling.)

Them: "Wow, that tail!"
Her: "Thanks, it has pockets."


Or perhaps you prefer Sea Men?

Extra Manly Sea Men. Heyooooooooo

Him: "How do I bring this camo tail and huntin' rifle to the next level?


Which brings us to the most majestic of the mer folk. A creature so magnificent, so regal, so breathtaking, that it defies all description.

So I wrote a haiku instead.

Ahem hem hem.

Never have I seen
Such dignity in the sea
Blobfish in a wig




Thanks to two Anony M.s & April S. for bringing Blobby back.

The Squire - my husband - says I am no longer allowed to visit Cake Wrecks. Every time I come here I have hysterics and end up with a coughing fit! That mermaid is simply WONderful!

It makes my heart happy to know that there are mermaids (mermatrons?) who look like me--had a little too much of the fried appetizer plate and perhaps not enough exercise, resulting in a blobby mid-section. From here on, I shall be the blobby mermatron.

Glad the Mer-man cake didn't reveal the reverse image. With a belt that low, his butt-crack would have rivaled the Marianas Trench.

This is full of CORN, but anyway: That first one is a DOLL, and I wonder if she can SING... ....but she is (only) PART ON.....
(Okay, pull the plug....NOW.)

I think the only way these mer-people could ever look good would be if Mer-lin cast a spell on them. (To cite the Dufflepuds in Voyage of the Dawn Treader, these were all UGLIFIED).

Why, oh why would you do that to us and a manly blobfish?
So very disturbing.
Now, where did I leave my blankie?
I need my blankie.

I do believe that last one is how Rubens would have depicted a mermaid. If plastic tails had existed back when he was painting.

Well, I can finally check "camo merfolk" off my list of things to see before I die.

That first one's actually pretty good -- for a triple-C. And I like the idea of a mer-man's man. But the last one is hilarious with your accompaniment.

That sea man is a work of art. The beard, the beer gut hanging over the belt buckle, the man boobs.. bravo

That last cake with red hair is disgusting.

" Please, Sir, can I have MORE?" -said Oliver Twist......forgetting that ugly cakes are bad for the digestion....and can clog up toilets.

I cannot imagine a reason to have a Sea Man cake .None. Nope, can't do it. Underwater rifle? Is that a thing?

Oh, manly SeaMan, you make my heart sing! You make everything groovy! SeaMan!

Hmmm. I wonder if they ordered a He Man cake and got this instead? Double wreck!

That merman one deserves a backsotry; it's weird Af, but not badly done.

May 14, 2019 | Unregistered Commenterkymdydyt

Thank you so much for zooming in on the blobby mermaid. That made my day.

May 14, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterRenee

Did Grandpa Abe Simpson model for the blobfish?

May 14, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterCharlie

That #3 squeeze cheese mermaid is pretty strange. I like the Duck Dynasty one. *L*

May 14, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterHyena Overlord

Funny mermaids and merman! Why oh why would a merman have a hat, rifle and beer?!? At least it is a camo tail.

May 15, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterDonna Schoonover

And here I was wondering what the heck a blob fish's cuter than that cake and that's without my glasses on lol. I really don't want to put them on to look lol.

I just have to say for the record I just LOVE that camo merman cake. I find the design just perfect - the details are wonderful ! DEFINITELY not a wreck in my book! I nonetheless would really like to know the backstory for this.

May 15, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterGingerSheep

I want a big swishy skirt printed with that first mermaid - and it must have pockets!

May 16, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterAA

The blobfish is actually much easier to look at than the mermaid... 🤢
