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? ;)

Belly Cakes, Continued

I believe I ended yesterday by saying that belly cakes were in dire need of some serious sex appeal. Well fortunately, a couple of Anony Mice have come to the rescue. Now then, I'll just cue up some sexy saxophone "Muzak" for atmosphere...

[Accordion instrumental of the "Chicken Dance" begins to play]

Whoops! Haha! Sorry - wrong CD. [fumbling with disks]

[Sax rendition of "Whole New World" begins]

Theeere we go. Much better. Ok. Y'all ready?

Ta Da!

Or should I say "Ta Ta?" [wicked grin]

Something about this brings the image of Han Solo frozen in carbonite to mind. But hey, killer nips!

Still, it's just not sexy enough, you know? I mean, it still has some clothes on.

Enter the "Sexy Suds" belly cake!

This clean bit of fun was submitted by the baker herself, although she asked to remain anonymous. And hey, it IS a beautifully done cake - it's just also a pregnant torso wearing nothing but bubbles. (Woo woo woo!)

But you wanna know the best part? Anony writes:

"The highlight was that the belly was filled with custard and with a tacky little plastic baby inside. When the Mom-to-be cut into the cake she had to use forceps (kitchen-tongs) to remove the plastic baby. Honestly, it was VERY funny at the time."

Oh I believe you, my friend - I do. Just remember: It's all fun and games 'til it ends up on Cake Wrecks*. Or 'til mom-to-be's in in the delivery room talking smack and brandishing a pair of kitchen tongs. One of the two, anyway. ;)

*I admit it: This is a shameless plug to sell more CW aprons.

That belly cake is erm ... eye popping! Hilarious! I would like to have been there when they cut it open.

Here's another great idea for a cut open cake: a bloody shark..

The first cake looks like someone used spray on tan badly!

Belly cakes are disgusting, period. But the placenta custard and plastic fetus should be a felony.

OMG! I think cake #2 (belly w/bubbles)is awesome!
I think people are taking it to seriously, as long as the mom to be loved it thats what counts.
If your grossed out by custard then you should probably stay out of the bakeries!

Wrong? Wrong? Has no one here heard of a C-section? No, they don't use kitchen tongs but they DO use something quite similar...

So they had a baby shower C-section. It's original, alright!

From the baker of Sexy Suds again... I FINALLY got my copy of the book and I am absolutely THRILLED to my toes that my cake made it into the book. I know, I are thinking "Why would she be proud that her cake made it into a book about bad cakes?". Well, in my humble opinion, my cake isn't there because it was badly made. Rather, it is there because it is one of the most over-the-top cakes ever! And that makes me very proud! WOO HOO!

P.S. I also noted that one of the cupcake decorators on the tour decided to make a wreckplica of my cake. AWESOME!

The problem with the bubble cake is that it doesn't really look like bubbles, so much as what got her into this situation in the first place. Just sayin'.

My mom acctually made the sexy suds cake. I was at the baby shower, and yes, it was QUITE akward, for me anyway. I think I was eleven or so... I don't know... Still to this day, I do not understand why she had to be naked.... But the look on the mom-to-be's face was HILARIOUS!!! Everyone there was laughing and it was a great time. (Tasted amazing, too)
