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? ;)

Put The Coffee DOWN

It's not often that a baker submits on of his/her own creations for us to pick on. But Maayan, who both bakes and documents funny food horrors, did just that.

The following diet-assisting monstrosity was actually ordered by a customer. And what is it?

Go ahead, guess. I'll wait...

Spaghetti with tomato-y cream sauce?

An ear?

A cherry, Cheez-Whiz and regurgitation torte?

Nope, nope and nope! Give up?

It's a fetus-with-an-iPod pie!

Uh, I guess fetus cookies would have been going too far?

Thanks to Maayan Z. for being such a great sport!

Aaaah gawd, that actually gave me a not very nice sensation in my stomach area... and may I say, that's not an easy task there.

I thought it was some kind of intestine representation...

So, now if you'll excuse me, I'll have to throw my dinner up >_>

What's really sad is that in medieval times there were desserts made out of figs and honey that were designed to look like fresh would take the figs and string them, arrange them on a platter to look like intestines, and then coat them with honey so they glistened. I still can't fathom what people were thinking about that, let alone THIS abomination.

Are you sure this wasn't ordered by Mr. David Cronenberg?

Is it bad that I actually knew what this was??? lol. The ONLY reason I can think someone would order this is because they were going to have a baby shower and wanted to use the whole advertising phase ipod went through using the baby fetus listening to the ipod. I don't know, maybe if this thing had more details to the baby itself it wouldn't of been as bad???
