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? ;)

May the 4th Be With You

And now, in honor of Star Wars Day, a Yoda/E.T. love child:

"Phone home, Yoda must."

Jennifer, did you hear about the time Luke kept swatting at imaginary bugs? Yoda told him, "Shoo, or shoo not; there is no fly."

Hey, I think it's really cute! So awful it's fabulous. But would I eat it? No.

The ear hair...*twitchsuddertwitch*

Yoda, this is supposed to be? Yoda, it does not look like. Looks like an old man, it does. A very bizzarely-colored old man with the aforementioned scary ear hair.

I would not eat that, never. Its neck looks a little moldy...

May 5, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Is that mould on the bottom of it?

If only I'd known about this blog three years ago, I'd have sneaked a few photos from the cake 'shop' (I use the word shop very loosely because it never sold anything) in my town center for you. Especially the wedding cake that had been in the window since uh, I moved to this town. 13 years ago.

I was going to say that, really, it's not that bad, but the mold kinda loses it for me.

UCK! Someone please use the force to make this cake appear appetizing.

The ear hair is pretty nasty. Oh yeah, so is his face...

That was Yoda? Dang. I thought it was Mr. Miyagi.

"Shoo, or shoo not; there is no fly." funny.

It looks like someone ran the yodbbyet cake over with a speeder.

wv untsms...sentences that begin with words starting with un. "Underestimated the approach of speeder you did."

I have found that the comments are sometimes as funny as the blog!

I dare not show this to my father! I think he might turn to the dark side and strangle me!

My favourite post EVER. And forever. You are so hilarious Jen, I don't know how you do it.

Thanks for the Star Wars Day post! My 11 year old noticed that Yoda looks alot like the lettuce on the cover of the book advertised next to the post!

May 5, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Oh, my. It's

I don't really get what's so bad about this one. Yeah, his ears aren't long enough, but so what? The thing certainly isn't top-notch, but I think it's obvious who it is. Just because it gets posted on Cake Wrecks doesn't automatically make it the worst thing in the world, people. =)

Come to the Dark Side! We have really ugly cakes!!

May 5, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterWillow

OMG, I asked my 8 yr old if he wanted to see a Yoda cake. He took one look at the photo and said, "That looks like ET, not Yoda." If you ever need a guest blogger...

It also looks a lot like Evinrude from the Rescuers.

Yikes! Eww..

I think it looks like a cross between Yoda and that blue Sesame Street muppet Rosita.

May 5, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAmy

haha shouldn't it be, 'shoo or shoo not, a fly there is not'?

May 5, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnne

I showed this picture to my father, and his reaction was, "Looks like a fungus."

May 6, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

I forgot to celebrate Star Wars Day this year...dangit! I'm glad someone did.

May 7, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterShort Round

This looks a bit like the Muppet Gonzo, for me. The ear-hair effect is striking, and somehow much better than the rest of the cake. Queer and unusual.

May 8, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterfuzzbomb

That Yoda looks like it was made using the same shaped-pan used to make the unrecognizable Shrek :)

May 10, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterthorswitch

I just found your blog today and am having one heck of a time reading everything. That has to be the ugliest cake I've ever seen! Who would even want to eat icing that is that garish colour?!

Forget about clowns. THIS is scary!
