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.

People need to lay off the criticism of the entries here. Do you not get it? JEN AND JOHN DO NOT MAKE THESE CAKES. They just comment on them. If you don't like the site, don't look at it.

I think they had a Reno 911 episode exactly like this, except replacing the skeleton with a hillbilly.

I would totally have bought that Happy Birthday cake for my mother (who has a Halloween birthday).

Sure she'd disown me, but it would be worth it. :)

Someone in the bakery has been watching too much SNL. But the look on that poor pumpkin's face . . .

The commentary made a good wreck 100x funnier.

Also, snowman head? How hard is a skull?

For those of you who have seen Fletch, I can just hear the pumpkin singing "Moon river.."

The title of the post said it all xDDD And the expression on the pumpkin's face really makes it!

It's hard to pretend I'm working when I read the title of the post, look down at the picture and bust out laughing!

I laughed so hard at the happy skeleton posing with his pumpkin that I cried. No joke.

John and Jen, I look forward to the sexual innuendos. Keep 'em coming. (no pun).

Aaaaah! I had totally forgotten about the "First, cut a hole in a melon" website until I saw this. My husband and I have spent the last ten minutes laughing our butts off. "Next, put it in the microwave."
