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? ;)

Guess Who!

ATTENTION CELEBRITY SINGERS: never hire a cake decorator to paint your portrait.

And for the rest of you: can you guess who's who on these cakes? I already gave you a hint. (Answers at bottom.)


Say, do you suppose this Wreckerator realized that "B'day" sounds exactly like "bidet"? That just seems like a bad play, eh? (Hey, these rhymes are unintentional, Ok?)

Did you guess them all? No cheating, now!

Ok, here are your answers:

First:

Tori looks through the looking glass.
Or, you know, the make-you-ugly fun-house glass.


Second:
Ohhh - the album is named "B'day". My bad. Or, M'bad.

And last but not least:

Yikes. I guess she does kind of have crazy eyes - I never noticed before. Huh.

Right, now go grab all your co-workers and see how they do. Chop chop!

Rachael G., Sarah W., & Anony M., don't stop the rock.

At first I thought they were all Madonna, but I actually did get the scary Hannah Montana one! She just looks so haunting *shiver*

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterkara

Oh my God. I thought the second one was Charo.

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterPete

I was thinking it was Madonna, Charo & Britney Spears. whoops

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJanine

Yikes! I never would have gotten Beyonce from that second cake. I was pretty sure it was supposed to be a Charo cake, which I guess could come in handy if you were having a Hollywood Squares themed birthday.

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterCraig

I don't know. That Hannah Montana cake looks pretty right on to me...

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered Commenter♥ jmo

I swore that the second one was Charro. Good times.

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterG

Hannah Montana is the best one!! This has made my day as usual.

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterLaura Moffitt

Miley's teef scare me more than the eyes

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJD

I would have sworn to you that the second one was Charo.

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterRick

These were my guesses:
1. Madonna, maybe?
2. Charo-I knew I had that one right!
3. Britney Spears-She's kind of a mess anyways so it seemed to fit.

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMiranda's Minutes

the miley cake actually looks eerily like miley......b/c she really is THAT creepy looking in real life.

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterbeej

I swore that second cake was Ginger from Gilligan's Isle. Beyonce would probably have been the LAST person to come to mind.
As for the Hannah Montana one I digress with a LOLCat crossover: In Soviet Russia, cake eats YOU!

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterLeslie

dang, i was 0 for 3, i really thought i had the last one too, anyone can see it's suzanne summers

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterlady macbeth

Ok, how much do my responses make me feel dated?! I thought they were (in order of appearance) Madonna, Raquel Welch, and Debbie Gibson! *groan* I'm going to go apply some more anti-wrinkle cream and go back to bed!

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered Commentertheinnermostbox

I didn't get the first two - but I did guess Hannah Montana.

I thought your chop-chop remark was funny and that I should get a knife and chop-chop those terrible cakes!

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJAMIE'S CREW

I was totally off. My guesses were: Madonna, a black Dolly Parton, and Britany Spears (during her tragic meltdown).

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAmroyo

while Ms. Cyrus' teeth are indeed prominent, the teeth on that Hannah Montana cake are downright terrifying.

also, the tori cake is.just.wow.wrong! but i also knew exactly what it was, so maybe it's not as terrible as i thought.

thought the second one was Charo, until i read the CD stack.

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMia

Wow. I said, Madonna, Shakira, Madonna. My second guess was Madonna, Madonna, Madonna.

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterthisbagisnotatoy

I thought the second cake was Charro and the first might be Madonna... I guess I was waaaaaaay off.

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

For some reason I wanted to guess Dolly Parton for all of them, except for the fact that her, ahem, most notable assets were not on display (although the Beyonce one was close). I actually didn't realize these were supposed to be three different singers until the end of the post.

Word verification: ingsh, n.: The botched versions of English that appears on some of our favorite Cake Wrecks, such as "It a Gril!"

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

WOW! I was totally wrong on all three counts... I was thinking Madonna, Raquel Welsch, and Britney Spears...

ROFLMAO!

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterCharlotte

The Hanna Montana is striking. Snark!

Absolutely did not get Beyonce.

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Did anyone else think that second cake was Charo? No? Just me? Okay then.

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterchickwithmonkey

I thought the Beyonce cake was http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Charo_black_dress.jpg" REL="nofollow">Charo. A stretch for the celebrity category, I know.

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterkjl

Okay, I guessed Tori and Hannah correctly, but I swear that 2nd one was Charo or Sophia Loren from back in the day.

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMelanie

Am I the only one who thought the second cake was Charo?

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterThe Kitchen Gadget Goddess

Oh, dang. I guessed

Bette Midler
Charo and
Aieeeeeee!!!!!

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterPointy Mom

I guessed Tori right but I swore the second one was Charro!

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

NOOOOO! This is HILARIOUS! I was WAY off...couldn't even take a stab at #2. (Last I checked, Beyonce is black, right?) I thought #1 was Madonna (albeit done poorly) and #3 I was thinking Hilary Duff.

I don't even think my ego could handle what a cake decorator might do with MY face...

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterDangGina

Hannah needs some floss. ASAP!

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Have none of these decorators heard of Photo cakes?

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJudy

Oh my! Those are some scary teeth on the Hannah Montana cake! I would have never guessed Tori or Beyonce though!

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterCarmen

I was SO sure that second one was Charo. bummer.

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered Commenter*mindi*

I could have sworn the second one was Hilary Duff. Didn't she have an album?

And if it was HD, that would have been a decent (not good, but passable) cake.

But it was Beyonce? Srsly, WTF?

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterlackofcontext

I think I'm mildly terrified that I took one look at the first one and went "That's Tori Amos".

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterfinkess

... The Hannah Montana one is pretty accurate. I actually guessed it correctly from the mouth.

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterBRANDELLA.

Poor, poor Hannah! Note to self, make your own Hannah Montanna cake!

These are hillarious. I wonder if anyone got them right. My guesses were Madonna, Charro and the blonde girl from the Manson family.

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJessi

I thought the first one was Madonna, though I wasn't clear on the swollen belly/insect connection. I had no idea on the second, but I knew the third was Miley Cyrus right away - it was the mouth. Which is as creepy as the eyes, in my opinion.

And here's a question - if we can at least identify them, does that automatically make them a little less wreckish?

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterpiecemeal people

Ha ! I thought that Beyonce cake was supposed to be Charro !!!

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJames ~n~ Amber

wow. those are bad. i thought they were madonna, charo and a blow up doll.

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterjenn

I got one... but only b'cause of the album titles on the, and I use this word loosely, cake. Um... these are just weird. I really don't want to eat anyone. These just help my case.

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterFluffy Cow

I was SO sure the second cake was Charo.

Also: Back in high school my friends and I hated abbreviations, yet a ton of people would abbreviate "birthday" as "b-day." We would read it as "bidet" and wish people a "Happy Bidet." I even made a card of a smiling bidet for such occasions.

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterTastyPrawn

I thought the second one was Charo.

-Michelle

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMichelle

I honestly thought the second one was supposed to be Charo!

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

I could have sworn the "happy b'day" cake was Charo. Really. I would have put money on it.

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

I thought the second one was Reba McIntyre. Um. Oops.

Hannah kinda look like Janice from the Muppet Show, but with the crazy-eyes. *does the I'm watchin' you two finger pointy thing*.

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMaria

I could have sworn the top one was Celine Dion...

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

haha, I thought that second one was Reba McEntire.

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAmanda

Why is Miley Cyrus's tongue SO BIG!?

btw, i didn't get any of them

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Doh!! I knew about the Beyonce 'BDay' thing and STILL guessed Pam Anderson!

I got Hannah Montana but thought the 1st one was Madonna.
