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!

Those are very disturbing but the most disturbing was Hannah's teeth - all the black inbetween every tooth. Yikes. Brush your teeth girl!

Oh my god, I thought the second one was CHARO-gootchie, gootchie.
Terrible-just terrible.

I thought the first one was Courtney Love :s

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterEmma

Ha, I thought the second cake was Charo and the third was Debbie Gibson (back when she was Debbie).

I got Tori Amos, though. Aside from barfly-saggy boobs, that one wasn't so far off.

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJennifer

That was supposed to be Beyonce? I thought it was Charo.

I was 0 for 0, but I had the Disney Channel area right when I guessed Hannah Montana.

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterViewtiful_Justin

I think the Hannah one isn't too bad!

Chiclet teeth: CHECK
Crazy eyes: Check
Too big mouth: Check

Fame hungry daddy behind : MIssing

Sorry...going to my corner now!

I was completely off on the Beyonce cake. I thought it was Charo.

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMeleah

I guessed Madonna, Charro, and Kathy Griffin. Either way these were some awful wrecks.

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

At least the decorator got Hannah Montanas teeth right

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMella

LOL! I thought it was Stevie Nicks, Raquel Welch, and Courtney Love! Disturbing.

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

The second one looks way more like Charo than Beyonce.

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterHeidi Renée

I thought they were all Miley/Hannah. Hrm.

The last one's eyes are creepy, but the teeth is really what scared the bejeebers out of me!

WV: ashess - These wrecks would be better off as burnt ashess.

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMandy

The second one looked like Susan Lucci to me..and I couldn`t figure out why someone would want that on a cake.

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterloveanapple

I totally thought Hannah Montana was Suzanne Sommers.

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMelissa

I got Tori Amos. But I really thought the 2nd one was Charo and the third Suzanne Somers.

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterTracy F

That second one looks like lonnie anderson

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJax

Whoa, I had my money on Charo for the second cake.

Note to anybody: never, ever draw all the teeth unless you want a ghoulish grimace a la monstrosity number three.

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMovie Meg

I really thought that second one was Charo. Amazing!

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterSarah

Tilda Swinton
Charo
Kathy Griffin

[peeks at answers]

Ooh, so close!

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJohn Overholt

I actually guessed Charo for #2.

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterKaron

Seriously I thought that Second one was that Charo lady that goes kitchy kitchy koo.

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterIndyMichele

My guesses were Joni Mitchell, Charo, and a very scary Chirstina Aguilera. Not even close!

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJen

I thought the second one was Charo.

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterCarl

Ewwwwwwww. Hannah Montana's teeth are HUGE! Looks nothing...absolutely nothing like her. And I thought the 2nd one was a country singer. The first one...well...it was just wrong.

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterCakedreamer

I thought the second one was Zsa Zsa Gabor, LOL!

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterShannonCC

You're wrong about #2 and #3. They're clearly Charo and Courney Love.

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterc5karl

I thought sure the middle one was Charro. And I was certain the last one was Suzanne Somers until I noticed that it was for a 6-year-old. Not a whole whole lot of 6-year-old Three's Company fans, I'm guessing.

I want a Charro cake now.

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterDoug D

I guessed: 1) Madonna or Stevie Nicks 2) Carmen Electra 3) Suzanne Somers.

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

OK, I got the first cake and last cake, but the first name that popped into my head for cake #2 was Charo! Cuchi-cuchi!! :P

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJasry

Beyonce?! I thought it was Charro!

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterVanessa S

Wow, I totally thought Madonna (old school), Lindsay Lohan, and Kathy Griffin. Way off.

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterSa Collins

Wow, super scary. I had no idea on the first one, the second one I thought was Charo, and I guessed the third one right. So I was one for three!

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterI Love Baby Quilts!

Wow, I seriously thought that Beyonce cake was Charo.

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterGreg McElhatton

I totally thought the second one was Cha-Cha. Is that her name?

SOOOO funny.

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterCafe Johnsonia

On the first one, brown poo icing does not frame it well, in my opinion. And at first, I thought she was holding a cigarette that got erased to have her hand out like that. Did anyone else think that, too?

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterjoyce

I thought the third one was Courtney Love. That's frightening.

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMommaBlogger

Eek! Yeah, now I notice the crazy eyes, but honestly, at first all I could see was that gaping mouth-- and those *teeth*!

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMichael

I refuse to believe that #2 isn't Charo.

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

I was WAY off on the first 2, but nailed the Hannah Montana cake, though she does resemble Debbie Gibson when she's in cake form.

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAmazing Greis

How sad that I got them all right.
I guess studying Picasso, Dali and Munch in college art did me some good after all!

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterNashvilleJen

I thought the second one looked like Charo. Coochie Coochie!

Julie Carr

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJulie

Miley does have a lot of jumbled up teeth in her mouth.

I would have guessed Madonna, Charo for the first 2. I had no idea on the 3rd!

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

I thought the Beyonce wreck was CHARRO!

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterStacy

The first one I was going for Madonna.
The Beyonce one I thought was Sophia Loren.
The Hannah Montana one - I totally thought was Crissy from Three's Company.
Looks like I sucked on all of them - however I like my guesses better!!

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterjeremyandgirls

Oh...Beyonce! I totally thought that was supposed to be Charo.

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterGeans

Wow. I guessed none of those correctly. And what is up (or down with cake #2's left boob? She looks like she may topple from the sheer weight of the thing!

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Whoops, I was sure the second one was Charro.

February 24, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterscurryer
