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? ;)

That Crowning Touch

Ok, bakers, time to make some princess tiaras!

Now remember, we want them to look like this:

Because reasons.


And we can only make cupcake cakes (patooie!), because cupcake cakes (patooie!) are just so clean and beautiful and easy to serve:

[deadpan stare]


Aaaaand... GO.

[wincing] Oooh, SO CLOSE.


Less close.

(Am I the only one who sees a star stepping over a puddle?)


What the...?


[softly banging head on desk]


I give up.


Let's just go back to making King cakes.

Ol Candle-Nose Pikachu there looks very, very sad. Poor Candle-Nose Pikachu.

I find myself wondering what the original crown looked like??

1) & 2) So we start off with something that faintly, vaguely, somewhat resembles a tiara. I guess the flotsam princesses are there to convince us.
3) Which has now morphed into something that resembles a shrubbery.
4) And now is a mutated starfish.
5) And becomes a house where the walls are bulging out at the top. (Sue the contractor).
6) And I give up on this one. Looks more like a tent dress than anything else.
7) But has morphed one more time into a lemony Jabba the Hutt.
8) This looks like the end of Bigfoot's sandal. Who knew he only had three toes like a sloth?

Number 7 looks more like a sad sad Pokemon😢

The second one looks like the "I don't even think you tried at all" meme and the fifth one looks like 9-Volt from WarioWare's helmet.

The last princess cake looks so sad!!! Probably because it's a cupcake cake, and it knows.

Is that King cake serving up some deviled eggs there? A little savory with all that sweet!

That last one - I was wondering who put deviled eggs on a cupcake cake. I mean, it’s already a cupcake cake, so how much worse can it get?

Ah, yes... cupcake cakes. :P

Poor Pikachu got run over.

Most of these remind me of Mr. Bill after he is flattened by a steamroller, run over by a train and then set on fire.. could just be me though lol.

If you wanted a tiara cake, why would you want flotsam princesses on it? Jeez, one or the other, guys. What else are candy jewels for?
