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? ;)

Gosh, Kermit, I Think I'd Get That Looked At...

The store selling these cakes (oh yes, there are more!) claims that they are watermelons.


As you can see from this other example, the "slice" appears to have drifted southward over time, resulting in the truly unfortunate and rather alarming spectacle you see here. In fact, this guy could be the new spokesman for certain "personal care" items, don't you think? Can't you just see him bouncing across your television screen, his squeaky voice telling you to "ask your doctor if HerpAway is right for you!"?

Thanks to Bahktin for the pic, originally posted here.

This blog will definitely curb my sweet tooth if there are more like this one. Do these cake decorators have any brain cells?

I've heard of watermelons being used as... er, sex toys for boys. Which brings a new dimension to the question, "Who was this intended for?" Especially with the addition of eyes, arms, and legs.

Too, too funny! I wonder if Kermit here and the "cold sore" cake are related. A sort of before and after, maybe?

You call this cake a "He"? Man, it's quite obviously a woman. With black spots in her... fruit meat...

Ok that's it...I have officially lost it. This cake has sent me over the edge...and there is no recovering from this.

While I came to work with good intentions I found your blog and began to read. Silly really, how dare I waste company time and money to read another's blog. But hell it's my break time.

I got to this cake and fully understood the reason for waterproof mascara. My boss has gotten up from his desk to find out what the whimpering sound is. Unfortunately it's me trying to surpress my laughter. Yes, since I had tears running down my cheeks I shamelessly let him think I was crying. He meekly walked out telling me to take whatever time I needed.

Thank you for making me laugh. I have shared your blog with many others on another bulletin board. I have encouraged them to all go to a local bakery and order a cake. We are deciding on what it should say. The results should be entertaining to say the least. :)

I am literally crying with laughter while trying to be silent incase my family hear me and think I'm laughing at nothing. THANK YOU for making this site. It's really made my day.

My 4-year-old daughter saw this cake and the other one and said "Is that a watermelon cake? A frog watermelon cake?" So.. at least kids first see the watermelon.

Well, it's certainly better than the evil vortex vagina cake that it previously was! But, do they really need watermelon cakes? Why not one that looks like a slice of watermelon?

Hi, I just found out about your blog and I love it! I wondered if you had a picture of the above cake and sure enough, a Google site search revealed this post, sans back story! A friend of mine showed this to me and the story is way better than the cake itself. So here is the original letter that was included with the photo, taken from Rick Emerson's blog (he's a radio show host in Portland, OR).


I was shopping at Fred Meyer last night when I was startled by this vagina cake.

The cake is a watermelon with a slice out of it and all of them except one have big plastic ants on them. This one has eyes, arms and legs and a vagina?? I am a gay man that has never personally seen a vagina and now have a very distorted picture of what a vagina looks like. Do they all have seeds?? My partner thought it looked similar since they raised the frosting around the edge.

Also, I felt like a pervert when I was taking the picture and a lady and her kids were watching me. Or was it the fact that I let her know that, "the cake didn't do anything for me, I just think it's funny." If I go back and buy it I'm definitely going through the uscan.

Thanks, Startled gay in NOPO.
