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? ;)

Halloween "Huh?"s

For today's cakes I have no answers. Only questions.

Uh, what's up with her nose? (Or should I say "down with her nose?")
I like to think it's just a wart, but I get the feeling that it'sss...not.

Why is the toilet paper angry?

What do colorful sperm have to do with Halloween?
(Granted, "Happy" I could see...)

WHAT in the name of sweet Lassie is that spider doing?!?

I have two questions for Mr. Ghost-with-the-Most here:
First, why did the Wreckerator feel it necessary to include two small chocolate bars and a gummi worm? And second, why, oh why, did s/he put them there and in that order?

Now, I don't want to leave you with all questions, my dear Wreckies, so here's a cake that answers the following:

Q) What do you get if you cross Princess Leia, Dracula, and the Bride of Frankenstein?

A) This:

Paige, Carey H., H.M., Erin, Suzanne U., & Daa, you must admit the resemblance is uncanny.

That angry TP - LOL

Every day with these Halloween ones, I find myself saying out loud to the cake pics "Oh come on now!" I mean, really. They made it and actually thought it was a good idea to sell it?

I think its funny how the witch is just a heart cake upside down.

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Snot-nosed witch! I hope she's got some Kleenex on her broom somewhere!

The ghost with the most..doesn't every guy think he's got...oh, never mind! LOL

These are the best Halloween wrecks yet!!! Thanks for the laughs!! These really leave you scratching your head, don't they?

And why IS the toilet paper angry, anyway?

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJust Me,Pilgrim

I think the green blob on the bottom of the first cake is supposed to be the witch's pointy chin. Maybe not snot. Maybe s'not.

As for the second one, I can only say, if you were tp, wouldn't you be angry?

The last one is sorta cute, in a 10-year-old way. Until you remember that it was done by a professional. Oh.

Great post! Thanks!

Angry TP Cake reminds me a little of Food Network's Guy Fieri.

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterlifeofleisa

Love the re-purposing of the heart pan! Love the angry tp. May be their (awful!) take on marshie from homstarrunner? The colorful sperm - Oh my goodness! I'm surprised the manager let that be on display!

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterKristine

It's not angry toilet paper. It's an angry toilet paper cozy!

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterDennis

Aside from the fact that it's a CCC, that last bat is kind of cute! The face has some real personality.

But that poor little paralyzed dog, lying in some horrible cookie-baited trap set by the giant spider who is now sucking it dry...
That's going to haunt me!

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterBin

I love Halloween through Christmas on this site. God bless America and its over-commercialized holiday seasons, because this, really, is glorious.

Cannot wait for the Pilgrim cakes to start rolling out.

Your wit has driven me to comment.

You totally rock.

Just what we need... vampires bats dressing up as Pennywise the Clown for Halloween.

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterSharon

Ick! The spider one gives me the shivers. Poor little doggie!

WV: muderses--Muderses we must be nice to the toilet paper. We don't want to make it angry.

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterKaty

Bwaa!!! Mommy!!!!!

First cake maybe attempting a Wicked Witch of the West Chin. The attempt went horribly wrong.
Wow, the 4th cake, that doggie looks very uncomfortable. I guess I would be uncomfortable too. Poor spider placement.
I have no words for the rest of thee horrifying wrecks. Well, except........

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterHobbit

Loved the TP one. :)

The other are just scary.

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterKristina

To me, it looks like the cross between Princess Leia, the Bride of Frankenstein, a Muppet, and a chihuahua.

WV: suredig - I suredig that angry toilet paper!

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered Commentercoeurdechoeur

You've outdone yourself today. One of the funniest entries ever!

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterNakia

The angry TP is hands down my favorite. LOL!

The last one is a hoot. I think that's more of a "What is it, oh well who cares it's cute" than an actual wreck, IMO. Now if being unidentifiable constitutes a wreck, then maybe so.

That huge blob of frosting on the witch's nose makes me want to gag.

The rest...just make me go 0_o

WV: Nomshar--what LOLCats do when they have a surplus of food.

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMelissa (& Billy)

The toilet paper one is so cute and bizarre!

And, spider aside, that dog is definitely bleeding out of it's mouth. I refuse to believe that is a tongue.

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnna

This is the funniest ever,I really did laugh out loud! I saw a good one at the store yesterday; kicked myself for not having my camera...I think it was Mr. TPs bride Ms. Angry Poo!

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterRachelle

Wait . . . sperm isn't supposed to look like that? I guess I should set up an appointment with my doctor. :P

Am I reading it wrong, or did you imply the whitch's nose is composed of those two blobs? I thought one was the nose and the other her chin?

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Those are just classic in their wreckiness and in your writing! Great post, Jen!

I do think I like the angry tp, tho. He's kinda cute (and has loads of frosting!)

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterlisadh

LOL... great blog. Anna, u are correct. I think Lassie is ROAD kill and that is blood comin' out of the mouth... and spider is just ready to have lunch? dunno...

yep, road kill dog? think I'll make it a cake (what werrrrre they thinking)

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterLisa G in NZ

There seems to be a distinct upsurge in people wanting sperm on their cakes. I saw some cakes at our local grocery with the same "design" - I think they're supposed to be lizards, but why bother with details?

The TP made me LOL :cD

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterKatie

That dog looks like it's become road kill and the spider is enjoying a feast. And isn't that a bow on its head, not glasses? I'm diggin' the Angry TP, too... Another hilarious post, Jen!

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered Commentereilbeback

Yesterday at the grocery store I saw doughnuts with a couple of gummi worms and mini candy bars on them. Perhaps there's something we are missing here? hmm...

Sadly, I didn't have my camera with me to capture that or the rather cute CCC of Frankenstein. It was well done - for a CCC!

Angry toilet paper is hilarious!

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterCarrie

Toilet paper? or ghost of Bart Simpson? You decide. Really, though, I thought the cupcake bat was actually cute. Most of those cupcake monstrosities are... monstrous, but I liked the bat.

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMother (Re)produces.

I actually like the Angry Toilet Paper.

As for the caption on the first one, all I have to say is "You might think those elephants are spraying water, but, its snot"

WV: suriatm - where TomKat's baby gets money from

My kids keep asking me what I'm going to be for Halloween this year, now I know.... Angry Toilet Paper!! Why didn't I think of it before?

Thanks for making me laugh until my sides hurt!!


October 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Oh my!


October 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterRebecca F.

I don't comment often (though I love this blog!) but I just have to say that you killed me with the spider comment. Awesome post!

Reminder to self:
No coffee while viewing Cake Wrecks!
No exceptions!

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterglassmaiden

The TP one looks like a white Bart Simpson.

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterKyle Roper

ok for the first cake- the witch with the weird nose... GOOGLE: Probiscis monkey.
LOVE the angry toilete paper. Made me laugh out loud.

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterKatie

The toilet paper/marshmallow cake is really cute! Odd, but cute.

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterKathleen

I think the toilet paper was angry because the cat, while trying to help I'm sure, clawed it on the top...and that is why felines should NEVER be hairstylists!

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMicha

Oh my GOD, I did not know what busting a gut was until I found your website!

Do you know how hard it is to hold in laughter with quotes like "why is the toilet paper mad?" rofl!!!!!

This is too dangerous for work. I need to make sure I look at your site at home! lol!

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterDawnie C.

That doggie one is so SAD!

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterBecky

The dog one is just too weird for words...I mean, WHY??? It makes no sense at all!!!!!!!!!

Great post!

From Diana:

":Please - it's far too early in the morning to be reminded of exactly how salacious my imagination is!

..."what in the name of sweet Lassie"....oh on the monitor again...."

I guess my imagination is just as salacious...and my monitor just as coffee stained. I really should have learned by now not to drink and read.

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterDonna

Aww, I like the happy spermies! Hubby and I are trying to make a baby and I'd like to think that his spermies are that happy. Maybe I should buy him a cookie?

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterVillageMom

I think if I was toilet paper, I'd also be angry with my lot in life...

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterWendy

Is that last one a DOUBLE-DECKER CCC? How appropriate for Halloween . . . the thought of it is simply horrible!!!

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterLisa

o_o The ghost with the chocolate bars... scares me... a lot...

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterWildroses

I think that last one is intended to be a bat.

The angry toilet paper made my day, somehow. I like it when the inanimate objects have faces.

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMetalNoir

Angry toilet paper cake cracks me up! Now, the sperm cake, I just don't know....

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterBethie

I find those doggy cakes upsetting enough ( I mean really, who would want to slice up and eat a cute little dog?! *cries* ) But that spider on the dog cake is a whole new level of disturbing.

And I'd buy the toilet paper cake and bring it to a party XD

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterShinyGreenApple

I'm preeettty sure I can see the 'hands/arms' on that ghost in the icing, so maybe he's supposed to be holding candy...? Though I suppose the ghost having hands to hold that stuff really doesn't help the situation.

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterLYX

i never thought cakes could be so funny until i found your site! hehehe

"If you look at the cake next to the colorful sperm one, it has the same sperm on it! What a fertile bunch of cake!"

Obviously, somewhere in the same bakery there's a jelly roll or an eclair (presumably not a ladyfinger) or a Long Tom that really gets around at night! It seems to mate indiscriminately with cookie cakes, cup cake cakes, and I don't know what else.

I think the Princess Leia cake is supposed to be a bat (one of those big-eared ones). A Star Wars sort of bat, but still a bat.
