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? ;)

Syfy Sacrilege

Look, it's a basic law of sci-fi, folks: YOU DON'T CROSS THE STREAMS.

[shaking head] This is wrong, Anony M.

So.

Wrong.

Im just going to go with "Look honey, the Storm Trooper and Bobafett are just shooting at the Enterprise... *nervous laughter*"

I was shaking my head before I'd even read the description!

I love them both but THEY.SHOULD.NOT.MIX!!!

This reminds me of The Office episode where Jim tells Andy about Battlestar Gallactica just to bug Dwight.

"Story's kinda bland. It's about this guy named Dumbledore Calrissian who needs to return the ring back to Mordor."

Proud to say that I have no idea what you're talking about. :)

I really like how they iced over the word TREK and wrote in WARS.
That is Klassy (with a K).
I enjoyed your Ghostbusters reference too!

Not that this one is.

At least they said thank you. (Where are the lawyers when you need them?)

December 3, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterFluffy Cow

Sad, sad, sad...my Star Wars lovin' son would have my head if I tried to pass that cake to him. These bakers needed the force -

Extra points for throwing in a 3rd movie on top of the two already pictured!

Zuuuul

December 3, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterNaomi Zikmund-Fisher

Star Trek Wars?
I think a whole new series is a-bornin'.

December 3, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterGary

Oh, just no.

December 3, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterS

The best part is that they COVERED UP the "Trek" part of the "Star Trek" sign with a poorly written "Wars." ::sigh::

At least they didn't try to create a poop Bobafett monster?

December 3, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterRecoveringActor

Tigerwolf for the win! LOL!

December 3, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Wow, that's just offensive!

December 3, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterKatie

Big, big facepalm.

December 3, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterm@

OUCH! That hurts my brain. I think I'm crying a bit. Oh. Make it stop.

December 3, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterViewtiful_Justin

The only thing that comes to mind is 'Oh NO They Didn't!?!?!??!?!'
That is just plain wrong on so many levels.

December 3, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterPinkCupcakeArts

Awww, that reminds me of when I was in high school, my mom made a cake with action figures: Darth Vader fighting Gambit from X-Men.

She had Gambit stabbing Vader with his own light saber.

It was the best cake ever. :,)

There should really be a pop culture course administered for grocery store bakers. I mean, honestly. This is grade school level material.

:)

December 3, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJenn

I love the Thank You sticker on the plastic cover. It makes everything better.

December 3, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterDallanterial

sheesh. not only is that a basic rule of sci-fi. that's pretty basic sci-fi - star trek and star wars. I mean really? They really can't tell them apart?

December 3, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterErin

Sacrilege is calling it SyFy ;P

December 3, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterStephanie

Eh, Star Wars, Star Trek. What's the difference?

December 3, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

I am sooo very offended by this, they never mix. What was this baker thinking?!

December 3, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterCassandra

I have to share this with my friends, if only because they will either break down crying or the major logic error of this wreck will make their brain shut down.

December 3, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterThe Black Dog

it's sad that i had to read the comments to figure out what the heck the reference was....

December 3, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Wow, I'm just a casual fan of each and yet I'm completely offended.

December 3, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterLisa

Haha, the perfect cake for a sci fi convention!!

December 3, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterHolly

Did they think just because it was for a 7 year old they could just cover the trek with wars and he wouldn't notice? My 5 year old and his friend both dressed up as Obi one (no idea how to spell that I'm not nearly as into this as they are) for Halloween and then told everyone how to tell they were from different movies. The kid WILL notice!

December 3, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterHeather

That is unbelievable. I would cry if that were my child's cake.

December 3, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterSabrina

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!! WHY???? WHO???? and...WHY???

Tigerwolf: “A long time ago in a galaxy where no man has boldly gone before!”

Hahahaha, that is brilliant. Jen should "borrow" that and edit the post LOL.

My husband would have a coronary seeing that, if ever I mix up the names (I always correct myself, but wars may slip out when I mean trek) he just says "Ummm, EXCUSE ME?!?!" .....
..
...Which kind of makes me want to replicate this cake for him April 1st...

December 3, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterservingzero

How come the last 'S' looks strangely like a 'T'?

December 3, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterStella

Whoever did this should be bound and gagged, and brought before two large groups of rabid Star Trek and Star Wars fans, all of whom have been issued aluminum baseball bats.

December 3, 2009 | Unregistered Commentermark p

Wow you can hardly tell they wrote over trek!

December 3, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterLe

I'm surprised the cake is still there. I mean, usually if you combine matter and antimatter you get an explosion large enough to wipe out planets...

December 3, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterGuitarroGal

*giggle,giggle, snort*
crossing streams
*giggle, giggle, snort*

if my Trekkie hubby saw this I think he'd have a fit!

December 3, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

ZOMG!!!!!

It's like your food...touching...ewwww.....!!!

"What? it's a spaceship. Do you really think anyone is going to care?"

December 3, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

it reminds me of george costanza's (seinfeld) worlds colliding.

"if relationship george walks through that door, he will kill independent george! a george divided against itself, cannot stand!" ~ george costanza

December 3, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterTerry Lee

Well, heck, they both begin with "star" and both keep geeks enthralled and away from anything as strenuous as social interaction of discourse. Both have created megabucks for convention halls and vendors.

Why not have a combined cake celebrating the fleeceing of the nerds?

But polite, anyhow. "Thank you"!

December 3, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterDiana

Wow. I was going to give the wrecker the benefit of the doubt at first, for being ignorant of mixing the two. But then I saw the icing of Wars added over Trek...

*shakes head sadly*

December 3, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterPangolin

Where's Jean-Luc Skywalker?

December 3, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterdeckardcanine

I am not a really hard-core scifi fan, but even I kind of want to boycott this bakery. This isn't just a serious lack of attention to details-- it's more like a blatant disregard for them.

That's probably not even the right name on the birthday boy's cake, and he's probably turning eight or nine.

December 3, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

I sentence this decorator to the agonizer booth!

December 3, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

This cake is leaving a bad taste in my mouth, and I haven't even gone anywhere near icing that color today.

December 3, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJimmy

No. Just...no.

Although if it means that bakeries are low on plastic flotsam, have to use whatever odds/ends are left, and their budgets don't allow them to restock...it may be a good thing.

In disguise. A seriously bad disguise.

December 3, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterLeftWingLock

That's blasphemy!!!
