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? ;)

Groom's Cake for a Cop

Prepare yourself for the yummiest-looking cliche EVER:

Aaaaand now I'm craving donuts. Thanks a LOT, Anony M.

It's nice to see a member of law enforcement with such a good sense of humor, though. At least, I hope this was his idea: it would have been a tad awkward if the bride's father ordered it. No one wants a parking ticket at their own daughter's wedding, right?

I actually like the cake. lol. I'm a Krispy Kreme freak, though. Unfortunately for my figure, I live just down the road from one! O_O Honestly, I think the fruit and flowers area cute little touch of the traditional while at the same time, the whole cake just blows tradition out of the water. I want a piece with a big hunk of donut!

My friends had a tower of KK's for their wedding 'cake', it was the BEST 'cake' ever!

Oh, my goodness--I forgot you could click on the photo to enlarge!
I clicked on it to enlarge.
I wish I hadn't.
I didn't even notice that the thing in the middle was a badge!! It looked to me like a clear plastic donation jar. (I thought that was odd.)
The badge depicts what looks like two women in dresses. Odder still.
Can we just forget the whole thing?

Krispy Kreme donuts are disgusting to me! I tried one once and I found it WAY too sweet. Here in Canada we have Tim Horton's....which aren't as good as they used to be. Maybe my tastebuds are changing.

Your tastebuds aren't changing; they went from making them from scratch in each store to mass-producing them in a factory. Now the "bakers" at Tim Hortons just heat up frozen donuts from a box and glaze or dip them.

I think this Krispy Kreme cake would be way more appealing without the fruit on it. I love fruit, I love Krispy Kreme... but the combination looks very unappetizing.

Sweet Baby Jebus in a Pita Pocket, I've gone into a sugar coma. Plus, I think I've gone blind.

It's U.G.L.Y.

A friend of mine had a neighbor who was a cop and had the "DARE to keep cops off doughnuts" bumper sticker.

I LOVE it! It's hysterical, just as it should be.

This is hysterical! I also have an ex-husband who was a cop. Quite fitting if you ask me. ;-)

now I'm very anti- KK (got sick after having some that weren't completely cooked), but perhaps the fruit and flowers were there to tie into the other wedding decor(like the wedding cake)and not a lame attempt to introduce healthy snacks. Still wrecktastic, but not as confusing . . . .

WV- dingly . . . the technical term for how your stomach feels after looking at this KK 'cake'

I dunno...I think maybe the bride's father did order it....the badge in the middle says 'special police'...hmmm...interesting...

And I can see the hot sign of my local Krispy Kreme from my desk at work...bwahahahaha...not to mention the daughter of a co-worker works there.....bwahahahaha...again!

If I had sen this before I got married, this would have been my wedding cake! Krispy Kremes are my weakness.

haa I told my husband we should have done this to him at our recent wedding and he wouldn't go for it. although I would have done it a bit tidier. the whole cop-donut thing isn't just a cliche! its so true I'VE eaten more donuts since I met him than I probably did in my entire life before that!

Umm actually I think if you take out the fake flowers (which are just sick...bleaak), the badge-thingy (which I thought was made of ice at first...silly me), the excess frosting (or any frosting at all for that matter) and added more fruit for color (like cantaloupe, honeydew, maybe some kiwi) it would look a lot more appetizing for me at least. Even with the donuts. I'd probably not use KK's though. They're a bit too sugarly (lol) for me. I'm kinda weird though. Love this site! brings me joy and happiness!

Word Verification: calkhoe. I don't even want to go there.

My son's friend's dad is a cop, and last time I was at their house he was wearing a shirt that said "A Day In The Life Of A Cop" and in one of the panels it showed the little stick figure guy with a policeman's hat scarfing a huge pile of donuts. No point in getting all riled up over the stereotype, right?

And surprisingly, I DON'T crave donuts. Probably because I'm getting sick; otherwise I'd be scarfing them down like the stick figure
