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.

Isn't it obvious that the sperm came from the "Hallo-weenie"?!

Oh wow. I don't laugh out loud very often, but this one had me trying hard to avoid waking up my husband... Good heavens.

The witch reminds me of the substitute teacher from this children's book

I have to say, I love the angry toilet paper. It looks like some weird cartoon that would be on Japanese stationary and stuff. :D

Why is the TP angry?

Because that bakery is a rip-off!

Why so mad, TP?
Because you're the backup for
Spider on patrol?

I'm sorry but that angry toilet-paper-ghost is SOOOO CUUUUUUTE!

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMrs. Taft

My god, the bluntness of "why is the toilet paper angry" had me laughing so hard I woke up my 6month old. It was worth it.

I have some friends dressing up in all white sweatsuits and fashioning tails... They're calling themselves a "fallopian swim team."
Although I'm not sure how the wreckerator heard about it! =)

I don't think the glasses are's a bow. Dog lovers do that kind of stuff. I'm not a dog lover but I recognize a poor dressed up dog anywhere.

Bwuh??? Drugs are not for the workplace, people! Keep your recreation at home!

October 29, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMiranda

OK. The first one is clearly the Boogie Monster.

The butt-sniffing spider... ROFL

October 29, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterHungarican Chick

I was away from my computer for 5 days and then woke this morning sick as the proverbial dog, bad stomach cramps. This post made me laugh so hard I threw up.... and I don't regret it. Thanks for raising my spirits, even if you did bring up other things as well.

October 29, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMelanie

Ok, I think the last photo is the cross of Rowlf the dog and Count von Count from the Muppets. :)

The toilet paper is angry because its hair is on fire!

October 30, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterRosemary

That last one is clearly a female for Batly (

I quite like the multi coloured sperm one. Looks fun.

The sperm are happy that they don't live in a hollow ween...

November 6, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterDaveyRamone

Oh my! The last one looks like poo with fangs!

November 10, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAndrea

Those squiggly things aren't sperm, they are Vermicious Knids from "Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator" (as illustrated by Joseph Schindelman).

i thought the toiler paper one looked a little like an enraged marshmallow that had its' hair ripper off (dunno why that came into mind)

but the dog cake..... as a dog lover and also having arachnophobia, that scares me..........

January 17, 2010 | Unregistered Commenter1nes

OMG... I think I know what that spider's doing...but I don't really want to say.

I like the TP cake. I LOL'ed on that one.

June 4, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSlipped Halo

Oh, guys, how could you not SEE? The cake with the chocolate bars/gummy worm... erm... decoration? (yes, for the sake of decorum, we'll call it "decoration.") Of COURSE they used Mr. Goodbar - 'cause it's full of NUTS!

Ah, thank YOU! *ba-dum ching!*

I laughed the entire way through viewing those cakes. My eyes are watering and the comments are hilarious ! My sentiments exactly.

October 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Okay, it's a year and a half later, but some geek has to say it: That spider is doing something unspeakable to Mr. Peabody!
