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? ;)

Step One: Cut a Hole in the Pumpkin

I can't think of a more Wrecktastic harbinger of Halloween happiness than this guy:


Yep, Mr. Bonehead here suuure is happy. How happy, you ask? Happy enough to say, "Look, ma! No hands!"

Dorei, just tell the kids it's a levitation trick. Which really startles the pumpkin.

I see a naked snowman trying to be modest...

October 30, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterChristine

Gives a whole new meaning to "pumpkin patch" ewwww

October 30, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterHorribleLicensePlates

That pumpkin looks pretty surprised....

October 30, 2009 | Unregistered Commentertjbmurph

Almost fell out of my chair I was laughing so hard. What a way to start a rainy, foggy, Friday.

You said soooooo much in such a few words.

October 30, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterDebraSue

Glad I wasn't drinking my coffee when that picture came up.

AWESOME.

October 30, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJulie

Oh dear... If not for the snowman head and the horribly placed pumpkin the skeleton would actually be pretty good!

October 30, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterSara R.

OMG!!!!!!

Why does Mr. Bonehead have such a big neck ? I feel like he has two...oh, nevermind.

October 30, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterStephanie

All I could think was, boner. Sorry.

October 30, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterserrahok

And just think---if it does not sell, they can replace the pumpkin with an oreo cookie and they are ready for Snowman !

October 30, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterjoyce

The cake was funny enough on your own, but your caption took it to a whole other level. So hilarious!

October 30, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterSusan

Okay, now that is disturbing. And what's up with the big round neck? I think he swallowed a pumpkin at the same time as he seems to be "passing" a pumpkin. Awkward placement, for the win!

Am I the only one that started humming "D**** in a box" from SNL?

October 30, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterTracy bish!

DUH! I didn't see the title!
Well, glad to know I wasn't the only one. lol

October 30, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterTracy bish!

I'm thinking something along the lines of skeleton - boner....nah, nevermind!

LOL - that pumpkin sure does look startled, doesn't he?

October 30, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterSheila Bennett

That pumpkin has a really surprised look on it's face...

October 30, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Looks like Mr. Bones has goiter problems as well. I blame having to concentrate so hard to keep that jack o'lantern afloat.

Happy Halloween!

October 30, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterReceptionist Row

Why on earth does he have 2 heads???

October 30, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMarjorie

Best. Title. Ever.

WV- talitte: the skeleton used his unmentionables talitte the jack o'lantern.

October 30, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterthesacredandtheprofane

surprise pumpkinsecks?

October 30, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMiranda

Wow. all the comments about the size of mr boner's neck, and nobody noticed that he's wearing a bow-tie!

I think the whole layout might actually be done on purpose by some sick twisted wreckerator out there.

October 30, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterLogan

Not to mention the skeleton has some sort of glandular problem...

October 30, 2009 | Unregistered Commenter-Sea Nymph-

Wow. You have to wonder what is in the heads of the bakers...Are they just underpaid high school kids who are testing what they can get away with, or did someone really make that and not look at or think about the implications....

October 30, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMike Owens

Wow, I didn't realize goiters remained on the skeleton!

Thanks for the laugh this morning!!

WV: bagon
Bacon with a cold, of course

October 30, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterdharmamama

I'll grant that it is kinda cute if you look at it with a totally innocent mind.

I do NOT have a totally innocent mind. >:D

October 30, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterKimberly Chapman

Mr. Snowman/Skeleton seems to have a serious goiter problem.

October 30, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterzekesmom10

Wow...yeah just wow.

October 30, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterLeAnne

That wreckorator HAD to know what they were doing with this. They just HAD to. There is no other explanation I can come up with for it!

October 30, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterCat

Thanks for the laugh!

October 30, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterKathyM

I'm glad you gave this guy a post of his own. He deserves it.

October 30, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterHalf Assed Kitchen

This is Justin Timberlake and Andy Samberg's next SNL short. D**k in a Gourd.

October 30, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAshley

I'm not sure about that pumpkin, is that an Oh! face or an OOOOhh face?

October 30, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterLeah K.

I appreciate the less sexually-charged entries.

This is a low kind of humor... disappointing when you are capable of so much better. Don't go for the cheap laughs.

October 30, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterTeddy

A holiday version for JT on SNL...

October 30, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMegan

All I could see was that goiter. Ew.

October 30, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterjennie w.

poor pumpkin.

i mean, really.

there should be laws.

October 30, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterTerry Lee

Oh my . . . that's just bad.

October 30, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterWriteCards

I guess Andy Samberg and Justin Timberlake can make a new version for Halloween "____ in a Pumpkin"

October 30, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterCandy Apple Mayhem

Never mind the goiter, I don't think that what's implied to be behind the pumpkin remains with the skeleton, either! Sorry, guys.

October 30, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Is that a pumpkin in your pants or are you just happy to see me? ;D

October 30, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Immediately reminded me of Michael's costume on The Office last night!

October 30, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAlex Getts

Step 1: Cut a hole in the pumpkin
Step 2: Put your junk in that pumpkin
Step 3: Make her open the pumpkin

Happy Halloween folks! Can't wait to meet you in ATL Jen & John!

WV: eczarita - margarita style drink made from pumpkins that have previously had holes cut in them.

October 30, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJenniffer

funny cake...but getting weary of the sexual connotation...seems like we're getting a lot of it lately :(

October 30, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

SAY, is that why the skelton has such a happy face?

October 30, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterStella

Thank you for the biggest laugh I've had in weeks!

XD

October 30, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMichelle S.

This looks like some sick amalgamations of holidays. Snowman, skeleton and pumpkin? Christmas, Halloween and.... Thanksgiving? Yea, let's go with that...

Whaa??

WV: aembedp... I'm not even going to try...

October 30, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterdomino_dreams

This isn't a wreck as much as it is metaphysical perfection.

October 30, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMike Brady

It also looks like he has a giant goiter...

October 30, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMolly

OMG....that is great!!!!

October 30, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterColleen

Wow.
What a cake. Haha

October 30, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAmy

That skeleton has a tragic case of Snowman Neck.

Teddy-
This is a blog. About bad cake decoration. If you want highbrow, go read some Balzac.
