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? ;)

Cake for a Cat-Lover

I think the baker captured that blank look of mortal terror quite well, don't you?

So for dog lovers, this is a "Creepy Cake". For cat lovers, it's "Just Funny". What say you, readers?

I like both cats and dogs, but a cake like that is begging NOT to be eaten.

That is just creepy...

Why oh why do people feel compelled to order fondant covered monstrosities such as this. I am a cat lover and dog lover and the thought of "digging" into a slice of nose or ear makes me want to hurl. especially after having to clean my own dog's ears and nose. ::throws up in my mouth:: Thanks for sharing this "gem"

OMG, who wants to eat a dog's head?

Here honey, have an eye. Oh wait, you wanted the snout. Here you go, sweetie. Pick the whiskers out first.

Maybe they are having it tsted for rabies, perhaps?

Looking at the other cakes in the background adds to the humor. Why make an animal look like it is made of blue cheese? The other one appears to be a frog sitting on Lilly pads. Eating a big green chunk of rah frog has its own touch of horror.

I had to pick myself off the floor for this one because I was laughing so hard. And then I read the caption. This is soooo funny.

It's a little creepy but you can't deny that it's really, really well executed.

I'm a cat lover and I find nothing even remotely funny in this decapitated dog's head.

It's skilfully done, right down to the terror-stricken expression, but the idea is disgusting.

Looks a lot like a dog.....but it's's cake, and cake is it.

I vote for "both sick and hilarious."

This has also made me realize that a cake shaped like a boar's head would be much better for a quasi-medieval Christmas party than an actual boar's head. Noted.

Reminds you of the last scene in "Blair Witch Proeject" but for dogs. Wonder what Fido saw when he/she finally caught up with whatever he/she was chasing? If it was a cat, it must have been a big one.

i have enjoyed all the pictures, but it wasn't until i got to this one that i laughed out loud. i startled my cat, george.

in our office we have had so many misspelled cakes that we now get the going-away cakes misspelled on purpose - "gool luck" is popular.

thanks for the fun. - minette

This thing that really makes this image is your caption!!

I'm really tired of this cultural assumption that all cat-lovers must also be dog-haters.

I think I'd laugh my butt off if it were red velvet cake!

This brings to mind the phrase 'with eyes...eyes that have seen too much...'

It looks like someone tried to do a cheap knockoff of the Godfather. -_-

Wait... are those eyes seperate pieces? Like someone rolled out fondant eyeballs and placed them inside fondant eye sockets? That's just a little TOO realistic, it's like the baby wreck that was watching us all from that right eye slit.

I love cats, and I think that this is kind of creepy.
