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? ;)

The Nose "No"s

These nosy Wrecks are certainly nothing to sneeze at.

We can always count on the drug companies for body part cakes, can't we, Amy S? Let's just hope that applicator isn't fully loaded. Oh, and that the cake isn't pistachio with lemon-glaze filling. Heheheh.

Ashley P. sniffed out a model that looks like a retro-fitted Space Invaders blaster:

To quote that guy from Geekologie: PEW PEW!

Celebrating a nose bleed: just one more occasion you never knew cakes were perfect for.

This next one may look like an adobe hut or cave entrance, but it's not.

I said "IT'S NOT." Work with me here, people, will ya?

Anyhoo, this gratuitous up-the-nose shot was found by Jessica G., and I'm lovin' that white shell border. Because you always want your giant schnoz to have a delicate finishing touch.

This next one's a lousy photo, but only because Tara H. had to take a picture of a picture to get it:

Ah, nose hair and extraneous apostrophes: It just don't get no betta!

The second one looks more like a plucked turkey bleeding from its feet.

At least that unnecessary apostrophe was just done in icing on a cake, not done in ink on a body. What? uh... no, I dont know from personal experience...*cough* sigh *

Hurl. Just plain f#$@%n hurl.

I don´t think we have icing in Sweden, but I know that we don´t have nose-cakes... :P

Yum! I'll have a piece of the snot-rag please. Tasty!

Love the 'don't kiss your honey' rhyme - I'm such a child!! :)

I think I lost my appetite. And the second cake looks like a vampire nose. Oh nose!
Er, oh noes!

April 2, 2009 | Unregistered Commentertwinklescrapbooks

um.....ew. even if it IS cake, I wouldn't particularly care to eat an enlarged nose, don't you think that's just a LITTLE weird? hmmm?

April 2, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterClara

The nosebleed cake looks like a couple of things - either it's been attacked by a vampire (too much Twilight, anyone?), or someone stuck tampons up the nostrils. Just ... weird.

I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who thought the second one looked like a bleeding chicken!

April 2, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterLacey

lol @ #1

I work at the company that makes FluMist! The cake makes me cringe, but that's actually a very accurate depiction how the spray is administered! Is there any info on that cake? When/where it was served? I wonder if they'll be doing it again this year... :P

The FluMist applicator seems extremely tiny in proportion to that giant nose.

April 2, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnna

Most of these cakewrecks may seem really weird but they all look perfectly fine to eat (assuming they don't taste as bad as they look) but there's something about slicing up a bleeding nose with tissues stuffed up it and putting it in my mouth that makes me go "why...? why would ANYONE make a nose-cake let alone a bleeding one?!"

April 2, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterBilby P. Dalgyte


Just gross.

April 2, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterScritzy

Gosh Do you have an Viagra cakes?

My son hates it when he says It`s Not and I tell him to quit talking about snot. lol

April 2, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterfuzzandfuzzlet

April 3, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterRhea

April 4, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterStephanie

I dunno, that second one kind of looks like a roasted turkey to me.

April 4, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

I think the pewpewpew pic is just a nose bleed being fixed with tampons (a la ben kweller.) nom nom nom

April 4, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterNot an Exit

Turn that second one upside down and it could be a uterus...

April 6, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterdani'

All I can think of is Double Dare's Giant nose...

April 9, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterDavid Moreira

On reflection, these remind me of the leader's nose they were trying to clone into a new leader in the Woody Allen movie "Sleeper" with Diane it, to escape, they try to take the nose hostage !

April 21, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterLynn

And just for added giggles, the "Flu Mist" thing is in reality a pickle-grabber. Imagine sticking one of those claw-like things up your nose!

November 3, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

I agree with the people who said the nosebleed cake looks like it has vampire fangs. Totally bizarre.

Sighted the remains of a CCC this afternoon: an empty box smeared with GOBS of frosting. I suspected its CCC status, and looking at the label confirmed it: the box said "Pull-apart cake." Blech.

Any particular reason why the roses are chocolate and the frosting is also chocolate? Seems a bit blah..
