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:


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

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.

so, if the album is "b'day," then that means that the cake actually says "happy Kim." there are no words.

That's sad, i'm a huge Tori fan, I even have that magazine and I thought it was Carrot Top!

OK, my incorrect guesses were 1) that Shawn White guy who does some sport that I can't even believe is in the Olympics, 2) Charo on a bed of CDs, and 3)Patricia Arquette. Judging by the other guesses, I'd say and actual Charo cake is in order.

Okay, if this didn't say celebrity singers, I would have sworn the first one was Ms. Frizzle from the Magic School Bus!

Would you believe I managed to guess Tori Amos? I'm not sure exactly why or how... Maybe because she's my fave singer and one of the rare few with red hair.

Simply atrocious. Makes for some entertaining reading, though! I am thoroughly enjoying my tour of your blog!

I thought the 2nd and 3rd ones was Charo.

April 1, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

I was sure the first one was Joni Mitchell.

June 2, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterfitkitty

the hannah montana cake was for a 6th birthday party. What could you expect?

July 8, 2011 | Unregistered Commenternarwhals4eva

I did though, consider madonna for all of them. Who hasn't she looked like?

July 8, 2011 | Unregistered Commenternarwhals4eva

Woah, woah, woah. February 24, 2009 | G. WHAT? I thought it was just me! Who is Charro???? HELP! Also, for that last cake it's probably a Hannah MontanAAAAAAHHHHHHH party. Which explains everything, really.

I saw Tori Amos (weirdly enough), Charo, and Carly Simon.

December 14, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterAustex99
