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? ;)

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

Fun, and a true wreck, figures totaly out of scale with the ship,and mixing 2 franchises. LOL and they get married and follow Mr Spocks childcare book?

As I like neither, I shall laugh hystrically into my hot tea. :3

Ouch, that's just painful.

Enjoyed the Ghostbusters reference, though!

December 4, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterChelsea

having it "SyFy" instead of SciFi in the post title is sacrilege all on its own.

I think I had a brain aneurysm.

The Enterprise, my beloved Enterprise, does NOT belong next to Obi-Wan. Doesn't work that way.

What, kid didn't like Stargate as well? Could have thrown in some Starfire too. I mean, come on! So many Star----s to go around!!

Honestly though, if they asked for a Star Trek / Star Wars cross over cake, it was never going to end well unless the baker just out right refused. :P

Egad! Where'd the post for today go??? (3rd)

December 4, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterFluffy Cow

or the 4th... today is the 4th. *sigh*

December 4, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterFluffy Cow

Peoples, it's "syfy" just to be funny! And also, the SciFi channel apparently changed their name to SyFy, cause we're too stupid to know it's spelled SciFi? Check out Or even; it'll reroute you to

Ahhh, thanks SyFy channel for dumbing it down for all!

Um, where did Friday's post go?

I hit refresh, and it's gone...

December 4, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Today's (12/4) post go bye-bye? Please don't tell me it got pulled because some infinitessimal portion of the CW audience got somehow offended by it - that would make me sad.

what happened to the cake for 4th??

December 4, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterdiddleymaz

I just saw today's post was gone too! Are we going crazy?

December 4, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

166 entries for this one, the Trekkies are coming out of the woodwork! Well done, Jen!

No cake today!?!

WV: futherdl
I'm made futherdl by the lack of cake. No relief from this boredom!

Greetings from Finland - love CW and have even used it in my lessons! I hope the 'Euro'-cake didn't get exterminated because someone got upset... And even worse if they weren't even from here! Many of us actually have a sense of humour, contrary to belief :D.

December 4, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterRiina

I'm so glad I'm not the only one who saw today's earlier post. I thought I was hallucinating (still a firm possibility, but now a group hallucination! Have more fun with your friends!!!).

December 4, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterRobynNewt

Cake Wrecks was just referenced (sadly not by name, but still) on "Have I Got News For You" on the BBC. I'm sure if you keep an eye on Youtube it'll crop up shortly, or else it will definitely be on BBC Iplayer for UK Cake Wrecks fans~

December 4, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterColumbine

I've just watched Have I Got News For You, which is a weekly panel show in the UK where comedians make fun of the week's events, and... They mentioned Cake Wrecks! The host mentioned "a blog devoted to cakes that are unintentionally sad, silly, creepy or inappropriate" and they showed a picture of The Cake That Started It All! I just thought I'd tell you. :)

December 4, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterSilkydog

You know what this cake needs? Star Bug from Red Dwarf!

December 4, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterSexy Sadie

That's hilarious.

But then I went "OMG ARE THOSE SCREWS" and I had to look at them closely and then wipe my forhead and say "Phew, no, they're just gray birthday candles."

December 4, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterKate

Seriously... what were they thinking????

December 4, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMalisa Twelves

I think this is just great and it is a very clever "mash up" that all the kids are doing these days.

More Mash Ups!

Battle Star Galactica and V.
"The Lizards are Cylons!"

V and FlashForward

"The FBI is infiltrated with are Lizard Cylons!"

FlashForward and Lost

"The FBI agent in FlashForward is that woman in V!"

V and Senerity

"One of Lizard Cylons infiltrating the FBI is the Browncoat Wash!"

I think we should see more of it. I think the underlying cakes should be combo flavors.
Chocolate and Vanilla. or
V for Vanilla and L for Lost.

FAIL Blog also had a Trek/Wars mash up today:

December 4, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJonathan

Not about the cake, but I just thought you'd like to know that you got a mention on 'Have I Got News For You' (a long running BBC current affairs comedy) on BBC1 tonight! :D

December 4, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterasthehind

Some friends and I once dressed as Star Wars characters to go see the premier of a Star Trek movie. That was an excellent way to piss of a bunch of other nerds. We nearly had our butts handed to us.

Good times.

Dude! not cool!!!


December 5, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterNZ_Jackie

Eegads, what have they done? XD I've seen that cake in my local Wal-Mart, sans Star Wars figures and that...classy...correction. It came out as a small children's party cake with the plastic enterprise and stand serving as the main decoration and an (admittedly unappetizing) airbrushed starry backdrop. But no Star Wars figures, and while it did rely on the plastic spaceship, it looked a sight better than this...thing.

So many comments to reply to and so little time!

I think somewhere, a Trekkie just died. Oh the horror.

Ya, and he was wearing a red shirt!

Lisa T. - you poor deprived child.

Amy - you are so right!

This was just too much to bear! Not enough OMGs or head shakes in the world.

WV: presten
as in "This is so wrong, my hands are presten to my eyes to stop the pain!"

December 5, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterChicagoCatt

Oh no they didn't! *cries* As a Trekkie I have a hard enough time trying to make people understand that Darth Vader did not try to destroy the Enterprise without cake people making it worse! Hehehe.

I actually laughed out loud for 10 minutes. I think I scared my fish..........

Reminds me of this Star Trek Fail and subsequent Win I found the other day.

December 5, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterdogface

Ok, I know they shouldn't mix, but do any of you Trekkies realize that R2D2 really IS in the new Star Trek movie? For real.

So, if George Lucas can get in on it, and have fun with Trek, why can't this cake?

Granted, the wreckers should have used their brains.

December 5, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterBright

Thats one seriously misshapen Millennium Falcon.

December 5, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

This is THE most offensive cake I've ever seen. Seriously. If someone tried to sell me that I would smash it to the floor and stomp on it.

December 6, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterL. Shepherd

to Miki: So I am not the only one to have that song running through my head for the last two days!?!?! Wahoo!

For those of you who don't know this song it's by The Firm, called "Star Trekkin'" Look it up, listen, and laugh!

Almost as wrong as the fact that they started spelling sci-fi: "syfy" to try and make science fiction more trendy and universally appealing. Really!?

December 6, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJohn and Sarah Sperry

My husband simply stared at this one in mute horror...


December 6, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterRene

a cake full of decorative ewoks would have been better than this.
