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? ;)

Why Suzy Needs Therapy

"Mo-ooom! Have you seen Giselle?"

"Suzy, what did I tell you about leaving your dolls lying around?"

"I don't know."

"You don't know? So you're telling me you don't remember any of the HUNDRED times I've warned you about leaving your toys strewn around the house?"


"So you don't remember what I said yesterday? About what would happen if I found your doll on the floor one more time?"

"Ummmm... Maybe you said something..."


[whining] "But I want my dolly! You HAVE to give her BACK!"

"Oh, don't you worry, honey. I'm sure she'll turn up after dinner."

That's cold, Chad C. - real cold.

Um...breathtakingly breathtaking...

Baby Shower Idea!!!!!

January 21, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterCara Elizabeth

what the hell IS that? does the baby have some crazy gas going on or something?

January 21, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterfading in the sun

This is just messed up, lol!


However, I do have somewhat of a theory on what it's SUPPOSED to be.

If you were to look at the cake from the just m i g h t look like a baby in a onesie? Sort of? Eh..just a guess, lol!

Why, oh why would someone do that though?!?

Also..LOVED the story that went along with it :)

January 21, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterHolly Sarah

Wow, that's ummm, very ummmm, well it's really ummm... I'm not sure. Who comes up with these ideas, I think they may need to go see one of *those* doctors.

January 21, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterKahla

The only thing I can figure is that this is an ice cream cake and the racks are in a refrigerator/freezer.

(Well, who has white plastic-coated racks in an oven anyway, but still...)


January 21, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterCharlene

Abby Normal's comment made me laugh harder than the actual post did. Awesome.

January 21, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterVanessa

Okay Jen...we need the real story on this cake. What was it really supposed to be all about??????

January 21, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJudy

Oh yikes, that's just downright scary!

January 21, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterSarah


January 21, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterBanana-head Pancake

Oh my dear God.

Hold me.

January 21, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMamaTink

The really scary thing (assuming that it's an actual doll, not a REALLY well done fondant version)is that those dolls come perfumed with an overpowering baby powder scent. So not only is the cake visually terrifying, it's going to taste like it was doused in Love's Baby Soft.

January 21, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterj

OMG that is just wrong, so wrong in so many ways!

January 21, 2009 | Unregistered Commentervanfox23

Baby! The other other white meat!!

Seriously, this is just.... horrifying.

January 21, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterBuffy

W.T.F ?????????

January 21, 2009 | Unregistered Commentersusan

That gives a whole slant on the endearment "babycakes..."

January 21, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterSlave Driver

What'd she say when she saw it?
is this like, 'have your cake and eat it too' ?


January 21, 2009 | Unregistered Commenter"Indescribable"

P'shaw. It's not THAT disturbing.
I figure you cut off the limbs/head and stuck them onto the cake after the fact? I don't see how you could cook it with the doll in it, obviously. xD Melted plastic. D:

January 21, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Well...if that is not the most disturbing thing I've seen all day...

January 21, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterKristina

Oh my...I think I'll try that with my daughter's laptop tomorrow..LOL!

January 21, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterFlowergirlz

That is absolutely terrifying.

January 21, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterRebecca


disturbing yes

all it needs now is a carrot!!


January 21, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJen

Hey, Willy Wonka warned that baby. He said, "No, that one's still in testing." But did the baby listen? No, it did not. I for one do not have any sympathy for that child.

January 21, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterApril

Did this child chew some of Willie Wonka's gum? She looks like she is rapidly expanding!

January 21, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterzekesmom10

But she deserved.

January 21, 2009 | Unregistered Commentermila;]

Haha- I should show it to my kids. We have a little rhyme game we play with our newborn in which we call her Babycake. I wonder what they'll have to say about this masterpiece. :D

Also- it can't be an oven. There is a cardboard liner under the cake that will burn. And like someone else mentioned, white plastic-coated oven racks?

They definitely didn't bake the baby in. I bet they removed the head, arms and legs from a regular doll and inserted post baking. The all-plastic variety have limbs that pop out.

January 21, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterGAMZu

Somebody needs slapped. That, and I just wanted to add to the incredible number of comments today!!!

WV- pegad. PEGAD! That cake is just wrong!!!!

January 22, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterFluffy Cow

That's just wrong on more levels than I can even comprehend. Freud would run screaming from this nightmare.

January 22, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterKaci

When I was a kid in the 80's my siblings and I liked this one:

"Mommy, where's my Cabbage Patch Kid?"

"Shut up and eat your cole slaw!"

January 22, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterRachel Gray

My first instinct was to scream. My second was to tilt my head and think, "maybe it's not THAT bad." My third instinct was to scream. ;)

January 22, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterNYCGirl

I laughed. A lot!

January 22, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterapparentlyjessy

that is really really disturbing

January 22, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterkristy

I'm laughing so hard I can barely type. Ya know whats even more twisted than this cake in it's present form? -the carnage of dismembered baby parts and bits of icing that would be left over AFTER cutting it up! Awesome!

January 22, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterZaphod

This is wrong on so many levels. Where does one start?

January 22, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterSimply Simmons


Possibly the view from straight above looks cute. But side on? Ummm, no.

And I had to do a double take because at first it looked like it was in the OVEN. Which would be even more freakazoid. But it must be refrigerator shelves.

January 22, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterSleepwalker

Okay seriously? This is way grosser than the intestines cake. Ew, ew, ew.

January 22, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMinyassa! (said in Fat B____rd voice hehehe)

WV: ausloide - me! I'm a loide (lady) from Australia

January 22, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterWolvie Girl

Wow. That is seriously disturbing.

[otherwise speechless]

January 22, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterScraps

oh my deity...

WTF?? How would you even shelve that, under "Toys" or under "Bakery item?"

there are some CRAZY ideas out there. XDDD

thanks for posting! ^_^ i love this site!

January 22, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterdmjumu

OMG! WTF? There is nothing else I can say about this cake.

Who would order this!? I would LOVE to meet the "decorator" of this cake.

January 22, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterHeather

someone here said its inside the oven, its in a fridge not in an oven. lolz.

January 22, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

The skin on thar thing is totally creeping me out.

January 22, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterSport's Mom

Is that a post partum depression baby in the oven cake?

Is it bursting a la alien out of its Mother's stomach?

Scary, scary and disturbing.

Cute pansies, I love pansies.

I was just wondering what to get our dear Malia Obama for her B-Day. I wonder if it comes in black?
