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? ;)

Rather Good Cake Video

This video is utterly insane, disturbing, and potentially seizure inducing.

I rather like it.


Be sure to check out Rather Good for more general hilarity.

Oh, and Josh, one question: how would one go about getting one's spouse to STOP WHISTLING THIS &%@!$ TUNE?!? That is, if one had such a whistling spouse. You know, like, in theory.

I guess my question is did they actually write the songs, then put videos to them? Or did someone else just as insane write them?

Good enough for a giggle first thing in the morning!

Thanks for the laugh

I love RatherGood. My poor spouse will have to endure me whistling this tune for a good long while, I suspect. He just got over me singing the RatherGood "we love the moon" for the last three years...

That's hysterical but the baby with the teeth is creeping me out!

September 3, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterBecky

I'm going back to bed. Maybe if I sleep long enough I will forget I saw that!

September 3, 2008 | Unregistered Commenterwpb30635

I've found that slaps upside the head help with the spouse whistling problem. If that doesn't work there's always threatening to delete his saved Tivo / DVR stuff.

OH YAY! Someone else who likes Rather Good! YAY!!

September 3, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterAbFabAmy

Rather good...I agree! Our whole house is rockin' out...our preschooler and toddler think the cake song is the best thing since, well...cake!

September 3, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterMarybeth

amazing! i cant stop giggling. that song is going to be stuck in my head all day. heehee.

September 3, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterLaura

Whaddya know! I like cake too!! Even if I am a bit woozy from motion-sickness inducing kitty...

Off to decorate "Dad's" brthdae "cake"!!

September 3, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterFluffy Cow

OK, my 2 and 5 year old were jamming out to the song.... to the point where my 2 year old crashed and hit her head. Lying on the floor she uttered... "Mo' cake-cake". If that isn't a testament, I know not what would be! Thanks for the hiliarious link... we completely appreciated it! I have linked your blog to my own, and it is a source of humor to me every day!

Is it just me or does that sound like The Wiggles? (And count your blessings if you haven't been exposed to that unique brand of torture.)

Lilli,

He writes and animates his own stuff. If you get a chance, check out some music from his band "7 Seconds of Love" -- I have a couple of their songs on my iPod, and he's quite good.

September 3, 2008 | Unregistered Commenterkanderson321

i do think that video could cause a seizure.... have mercy

September 3, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterLaura ~Peach~

See... what creeps me out is the cats with lips doing harmony in the background... Ewww. But definitely good first thing in the morning!

September 3, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterRobert

The creepiest part is the singing baby covered in chocolate.

September 3, 2008 | Unregistered Commenter*Michelle

Seizure inducing is about right...I was getting really dizzy watching it. Yikes, but hilarious.

September 3, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterStacy

I suddenly feel dizzy, yet suprisingly hungry for cake.

September 3, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterAn Apron Straitjacket

OK, I've had some coffee... yogurt... cereal...

Just trying to figure out what was laced with acid this morning! YIKES!

September 3, 2008 | Unregistered Commenterlizzied

September 3, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterThe Engelhardt 4

I love Rather Good. They had these ads out for Quizno's Subs a while back. If you think the cake tune is addictive... my friends and I were running around for WEEKS singing "WE LIKE THE SUBS!!!"

September 3, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterMelanie

ugh. Not my taste.

September 3, 2008 | Unregistered Commenterbob

Sorry, but this was rather terrible. Easily the worst post on this otherwise great blog.

September 3, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Um, unfortunately, I'M the whistling spouse in this marriage, so now my husband shall be dammed forever. I guess he'll just be happy it's no longer Wicked and Chicago tunes....

September 3, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterAndrea

I only made it through 32 seconds before I got motion sickness and had to turn it off.

The song is cute, though.

September 3, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterRedd

ugh, that was horrible.

and it's already in my head after just one viewing.

September 3, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterSarah

Okay, I just got referred here by another blog and you are now on my ever-increasing reader list. Love your blog!

September 3, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterKaye

Too funny, and thank you for now having that song stuck in my head for the day!!

September 3, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterCrochet by Momma J

Oh my gosh I almost wet my pants.. that was too funny and utterly scary all at the same time :)

September 3, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterHarley Dee

From the minds that brought you "The Yellow Submarine", evidently.

September 3, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterYarnhog

Awesome.

I wanted to let you know that I came across your blog because you're on the "notable blog list" on Blogger. Now I'm addicted!

September 3, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterLeahBear

I LOVE that song and I LOVE that site. I was wondering whether to send it in - now it appears I don't have to

It is a very catchy song, and is available on iTunes ^^

September 3, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterTamsin

That's hilarious...in an oddly disturbing way, LOL!

September 3, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterV. Nicharico

OMG! That was great ~ in a weird kind of way, of course. Loved the background singers with the big red lips. Now I can't get that song out of my brain. aaaaaIIIIIeeeeee!

September 3, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterDebbi

AAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(loud scream)

September 3, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterChris

OK I can listen to it but I should deffinately not have watched it since already feel nauseas.UGH

September 3, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterSgtSudsWife

Now that my husband has been diagnosed with Celiac Disease, our cakes ARE made of rice. hmmmmm...

September 3, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Oh, I think I'm going to be nauseous. Yikes...

September 3, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterChristine

haha, fair question, it is insanely catchy, as much as that video annoys me....

September 3, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterSnowberry & Lime

Gimme some cake!

BWAHAHAA!

September 3, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterDea

who in the world comes up with these things?

anywho, cute, and gosh darn catchy!

September 3, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterThe Hatter

Very entertaining Good for a few laughts.

September 3, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

I think you've found your theme song for this blog!

I need to go take a motion sickness pill now.

September 3, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterMarissa

Did that come from the creators of those Quizno's ads a few years back?

September 3, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterMB

We're RatherGood fans from way back, but our problem isn't whistling. It's the fact that we can't get our preschoolers to stop singing the "Beer Beer Beer" song. We try to rephrase it as other things "Cheese Cheese Cheese," etc. We'll have to try "Cake Cake Cake."

September 3, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterJenny

And people say that television is leading to the degradation of our society and the pollution of the minds of our youth. No; no, I say. It is Videos Like This One that are frying our brain cells one by one.

September 3, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterChris

Does anyone remember Toonce the Cat? Yeah I think this is Toonce's long lost cousin, Cake Kitty.

September 3, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterAccidental housewife

hilarity ensues...

September 3, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterJohnny Trendsetter

Great, now I have to go to bed with that song in my head. Love the Dalek cake at the beginning, though!

September 4, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterKristi

I just went thru all your cake wrecks...BLOODY HILARIOUS! I can see why you made the Blogs of Note.
