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? ;)

That's awesome - portraiture in icing. Nice.

September 26, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterChristine

Oh. my. goodness! A whole bunch of "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO's" is right! What in the world happened here?

September 26, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterWriteCards

Oh, my! Looks like one of the kids in my preschool class drew the happy couple and then someone recreated the drawing in icing, but WHY?????

September 26, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJulie

My goodness, that really WAS scary!

September 26, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterVintage Vixen

Well obviously the wreckerator was asked to portray the bride and groom EXACTLY as they look in person, right?

My guess is too much collagen.

September 26, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAthena

Dear me! Look at the pink poo roses! Oh no, if it was my wedding, I think I would've cried!!

September 26, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterPriscilla

At first glance, I thought it was a cake of a flesh wound! Ick!

September 26, 2009 | Unregistered Commenteralyssareeves

September 26, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterfrigglesnitz

September 26, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterSiobhan

September 26, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterTerry Lee

Awwwwwwwwwwwwwww, what a lovely little rotten zombiecouple. They look so happy -I suppose- with their hollow dead eyes at these pink and green blurbs!!!

September 26, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterSara Otterst├Ątter

That's pretty flipping creepy.

September 26, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterLilianna

Yowsa! It looks like that cake is having open heart surgery. Not appetizing.

Methinks a little cake decorator was jealous of the happy couple?

"Here is what you'll look like on your wedding day after eating my cake! ZOOOOMBIESSSSS!!! MUAHAHAHAHA!!!"

September 26, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterKyra Eden

*laughs*

My husband is the best man in a wedding today -- I'm debating if I should show this to the bride before or after she sees her own cake....

Last night in Portland was awesome, Jen! Here's a link to my photos of the event!

The first shot reminded me of something out of the Alien movies! Then you zoomed in and it was even worse!! lol

September 26, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterKachine

You know what they look like? The evil "other" parents off Coraline. The one's with the buttons for eyes and no SOUL.

September 26, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterThe Black Cat

Errrrr. That's the only sound that can make it out of my mouth right now.

September 26, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterCasey

ZOOM OUT AND RUN, RUN, RUN! Oh this is so bad its hilarous!!!

September 26, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterNancy

Cool! A wedding cake for fans of the movie "They Live" http://movies.infinitecoolness.com/theylive/gallery/theylive60.jpg

Thanks for the laugh out loud moment this morning!

September 26, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

WHY WOULD ANYONE THIS THIS IS OKAY?!

*grumble*

September 26, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMaggie

Used to be destination weddings, now zombie weddings are the next big thing! I wonder if a zombie Elvis can officiate?

September 26, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterWriter and Cat

well i hope the happy couple look nothing like their cake.
and i hope it didn't ruin the wedding and i hope the happy couple had a great sense of humor and i hope the bride didn't kill the cake decorator.
Best!mots

September 26, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Must be a "Resident Evil" cake.

September 26, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterLynne

Noooooooooooooo! I was all set to head out the door for the 2 hour drive to Seattle and I got called into work! How can this be happening?! Who's going to eat this lovely cupcake?! (OK well that's an easy fix)

/tear

Have a great visit to the Pacific Northwest and on your next tour, PLEASE head up north of the 49th so i can at least sneak in a visit during an extra long lunch.

September 26, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterKirstie

They look like a zombie couple about to dig into an arm!

September 26, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterHaley

Yikes. Wedding of the zombies, eh?

~Amy B

September 26, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAmy

Is it just me, or does the happy couple have a child together already, and this was meant to look like they're both beaming at the baby? Or maybe I am looking for sense where there is none.

September 26, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterPinget

I was stumped on what to be for Halloween, but now I'm considering the Angel of Death. Thanks to this blushing bride for inspiration.

September 26, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterTheWordWire

Why does this remind me of Beetlejuice?!?!

September 26, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterKirthan

I was going to say this reminded me of Beetlejuice, but then I noticed that's what the last comment said. :D

September 26, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterwendy

Was that cake for a wookie wedding?

September 26, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterKaren

Zombies! and Skidmarks!

September 26, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterDennis

WOW! That bride looks like an angel who still has her wings but may have, um, fallen from grace.

September 26, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterKathleen

I want a Zombie Wedding Cake!

Alas, we went with lovely teal and lavender roses on white buttercream. But I've got two weeks... I can change it, right? No? Darn.

WV: teboate
Teboate had dun left teharbor before tebride realized what was on tecake.

September 26, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterFahnette

So, my 3 year-old daughter just happened to be sitting next to me and upon seeing those two she said "Look, the zombie!"

September 26, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterWayne

I'm sorry, I can't make a comment today, the bride's eyes have sucked out my soul.

*staggers away*

September 26, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterDoug

Hey, zombies are HOT right now. It's trendy!

September 26, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterwrittenwyrdd

Reminds me of my grandmothers wedding photo from 1895.

I did a little research and it was "arranged."

They looked just like that cake.

September 26, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterPamela

We featured you at The Apron Goddesses today.

Love the faces on the bride and groom!

September 26, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterSuzi

Wow, the detail on the faces is amazing! :)

September 26, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterBravoBride - Susan

Clearly this is a Zombie Wedding.
Although I didn't know zombie brides wore angel wings at wedding ceremonies.
Brains.... braiiiiins...

September 26, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMo

Your commentary on this one is the best! It's totally cracking me up!!:D

September 26, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Oh my God! Her grossly swollen, discolored, and distended arm...I thought the groom was carrying a log or something.

September 26, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterNini

Karen has it.
The bride's a wookie!

September 26, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterRoses

I'm on my way out the door to a wedding.

I needed this.

September 26, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterIrma

Hey the undead like wedding cakes too!
