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? ;)

Hey, Bebeh

"Girl, you lookin' fine. Why don't you come over here, and give daddy a lil' sugar?"

"Check it. I've got a spiky polar-bear-skin rug for us to lounge on, and some suh-weet champagne glasses the size of water coolers. I even put on my navy blue tighty-whities, 'cuz I know how much you dig those.

"What's that, kitten? You like the light blue ones better? No problem."

[patting rug] "This cracked concrete floor is hard, baby, but not as hard to you? Yeah. Yeah, that's it. Hey, kids! What are you doing in here? Amscray, will ya?"

"That's better. Now, where were we? Ah, yes, talking about how lucky you are - or at least how lucky you're gonna be. [waggling eyebrows] Aww yeaaah. This sea I'm lying in is the ocean of my love, and it's all for you, girl, it's all for you. [wink wink]

"What's a matter, doll? Still not convinced? How 'bout if I do some leg lifts?"

"My sticker may say 'yellow', pudd'n, but this here treat is pure chocolate, if you know what I'm sayin'."

I don't know about you, Aimee T., Lisa C., J.B., and Becky B., but I am definitely in the mood - for cake.

January 16, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterzobabe

Anyone notice the Disney princess napkins in the first one? I really hope this cake was for a little girls birthday party!

January 18, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

A couple of commenters have said they want to make a "hey bebeh" cake of their own, well now you can!

I found this, and thought I'd share...ready, set, wreckerate!

January 27, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterRxy

I laughed so hard I nearly fell out of my chair! The cakes are not only hysterical but the narration - OH MY GOSH - Girl, you are SO FUNNY!!!!!

January 29, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

OMG LOL! I'm sorry but the first one looks more like he's laying on the Abominable (sp?)Snowman. The last few look like he's saying,"Hey, look what I just killed- booty call, anyone?"

Now pass me some of that cake ;)

January 31, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterKimmygintx

I am in *tears* from laughter! Your commentary is just tooooo much! LOL

February 5, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

I am just in shock at how many mostly naked men laying on polar bear skinned rug cakes there are out there in the world.

February 7, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterKileen Smith

Is it just me, or is the guy talking like Boba Fett on the Robot Chicken Star Wars special?

Ah. Just me then.

February 11, 2009 | Unregistered Commentercurtinparloe

I did not make the bearskin rug connection until you said it. Up until that point, I thought there was a yeti lying face-up on the cake.

February 13, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterSophia

I haven't laughed so hard in ages - OMG!

March 1, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterCakelaw

Just a minor detail, but for the dude to be laying on a polar bear skin in the ocean, wouldn't the bear still have to be alive to float?

March 3, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

At first, I genuinely thought the Michelin Man was giving that scantily-clad man a hug.

March 5, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJonathan

Does nobody else think that "Betti's getting OLD" is a slightly less than appropriate sentiment??

March 19, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJennifer

I wonder if someone actually paid $24.99 for that last one. Because really, it's priceless.

March 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterBecky

OMG! I saw these horrific plastic dolls in the clerance bin at Kroger and wondered what they were for! This makes that disturbing find make sense and also makes me thank God that they must have retired this cake at my local grocery store. Crisis averted.

April 7, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

I want one of these for my birthday. ;)

May 22, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterHannah

Jen, I think these may be my favorite cakes yet! Your little story line was hilarious!! WHERE do people find these things...hopefully NOT on their own birthday.

June 4, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJenny

OMG. I've looked at this page like 5 times and it makes me laugh EVERY time!!! Stinkin' hilarious!

June 5, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJenny

July 14, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

My cake looked like this. They drew a goatee on him so he looked like my fiance. xD

July 22, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMilk Mama

LOL My husband "surprised" me with this cake a few years ago for my birthday at a party in front of everyone, I still have the glasses and the man...

September 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

October 15, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterBella

December 2, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAmity

Ya know what's really creepy? There's more than one of it.

December 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous
