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.

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

And as we saw a few posts ago, some are made with meat and fish. Not that they should be, but they are.

The best part is the baby singing, "I like cake!"

September 4, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterAmy Ruthanne

Did you make this? it looks like that you just put music to it.

Jenny, thank God we're not the only ones! My daughter was hooked on the Beer Beer Beer song a few months ago, too. Eventually I convinced my husband it wouldn't be good for her to sing at school, and he stopped showing it to her.

Disturbing ... but I couldn't stop watching! Somebody had too much free time on their hands :-)

September 4, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterMe!

That video is like a car accident: you don't wanna watch but you can't HELP IT!!

When the Hubster starts singing/whistling/humming some annoying song, I sing the Vonage song (Woo Hoo Woo Hoo Hoo!) at the top of my lungs and drown him out. The trick is to out annoy the heck outta him & beat him at his own game!

I think I threw up in my mouth a little when I saw the macho man cake. Sadly, I think I dated that guy...........

That Barbie concoction reminds me of the crocheted doll thingamabob my grandma used to hide the extra roll of toilet paper in.

It the cake kitty on crack?

Yes...Josh...please tell us how to shut up our spouses. Sigh...

I showed this to my 4yo and he laughed hysterically when the baby came on the screen! The first time he asked to watch it 4x in a row. Now all I have to do is whistle the theme and he says, "I Like Cake!"

I love this site!!!

Made my day as I really needed some hysteria (FUN hysteria as opposed to personal hysteria).

That's not teeth on the baby, is it? I thought it was icing...

Blister in the Sun by the Violent Femmes always gets rid of the repeating ditty for me.

I'm a Doctor Who fan, and I couldn't help but notice the dalek go by in the background in the first couple of seconds...

:-) I've been a Rather Good fan for YEARS! And I agree 7 Seconds of Love is awesome too! Joel and Alex rule! :-)

We love the moon

Rather Good are ace. I would also like to admit to some of those cakes in the video being mine. I am particularly proud of the pink cake with 4 candles - entirely crafted by my own fair hand.

Love this blog - it never fails to cheer :)

I think this should be the official Cake Wrecks Anthem!

(I will not play this with my spouse around...I am having enough trouble getting the song out of my head on my own!)

September 10, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Wow. I am REALLY glad I am a stay at home mom, because if I had - say - watched this at the office, I would be fired for sure. I nearly peed my pants laughing at this! I love that this is available on iTunes. This song is my anthem.

September 12, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Cake cake, cake cake cake cake yeah!

I love RatherGood. They're Rather Awesome. I love the Viking Kittens.

September 17, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterWillow

Hey, was that a Dalek I saw?

September 18, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

ummm this guy needs to fix his video because we have already established that cakes are, indeed, made from meat...

September 20, 2008 | Unregistered Commenterjenna and sarah

I would hope that your hubby has stopped whistling the tune by now, but just in case he hasn't here is a catchy replacement!

Ohhh, good gods.

I read the "seizure inducing" warning. Why did I not listen?!

Curse my overwhelming curiosity!


If any other readers out there are epileptic, HEED THE WARNING.

"this video has been removed"

sad news for those of us who've just recently discovered cake wrecks, and are working our way through the archives. :(

October 16, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

If you wanted to see the video again (WARNING: it's an ear worm!) you can find it here now:

June 1, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterRyan Egesdahl

Sadly the video doesn't exist anymore :(

March 30, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterJay

I know I said I hopefully wouldn't post another comment, but I just HAD to.
For some reason, when I clicked the play button on the video (I may not be the only one with this problem) it said "This video does not exist." That actually made me laugh. :-l
