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? ;)

Happy Labor Day!

I'd like to wish you all a very happy Labor Day in true Cake Wrecks fashion.

(So, you know, you might want to put that coffee down.)

Can I get a virtual drum roll, please?

[cymbal crash!]

Amanda N., here's a cake that doesn't need any cutting remarks from me; no matter how you slice it, this baby is hands-down the best gut-buster I've seen in a looong time.

Bonus Pun: Say, do you suppose this bakery delivers? (Booyah!)

The taste for this cake is less than "questionnable", it's plain tasteless; and it's definitely creepy.

Three thoughts come to mind:

1.She's giving birth to Bugs Bunny?

2. Who wants to eat an open wound cake...honestly?

3. my stomach hurts... I think I'm gonna hurl... Thanks Jen.

Husband: AAAAHHH!!

oh my god it looks like the baby/creature is escaping into the wound. bye-bye!!


but kind of an interesting juxtaposition, i must admit. looney tunes + surgery...?

I have a pregnant coworker who is in the next room right now. I think I better not show this one to her. YIKES!!!!!!!

Who would ever think this was a good idea???

September 7, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterRachel

that has got to be one of the most disgusting things i have seen in a loooooooooong time! Even on CakeWrecks....I think I need some brain bleach!

As an extra added bonus, I was personally born on Labor Day. 2 in the morning. (5 days before my mother's birthday). We take turns once in a while having birthdays on Labor Day. XD

You can't unsee something, though I wish I could. I'm always morbidly curious as to what flavor these cakes are composed of - they wouldn't dare use red velvet, would they?

September 7, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterManda

Not to mention that the sign is missing an apostrophe.

September 7, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJenna

That is really disgusting.

September 7, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterLisa P in California

eww gross!!!!!!!!

September 7, 2009 | Unregistered Commentermarypoppins

That's just wrong.

September 7, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterSweet Success

HMMMMMM.... There is defiantly no excuse fore this one....Yuk!

So 4 years ago today, my daughter was born via C-section after 4 separate attempts at induction.

If anyone should appreciate this cake, it's me.

Instead, I just threw up a little. And not in a good way.

September 7, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJennifer

What did you get in 7 puns in one post - awesome!!!!

September 7, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterGrace

You know, four years ago, I spent Labor Day in triage waiting to find out that my contractions were false alarms...four days later I got to have a c-section...

It's like this post was MADE for me! (But I would have to hurt the person who thought I would like that cake. As in, 20-hours-of-completely-unproductive-labor hurt them.)

September 7, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterKristen

After having my own C-section I find nothing funny or appetizing about that cake.

it. is. horrid.

September 7, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterSandi

I really don't know what to say to that... It leaves you speechless, so I suppose that's a positive :)

September 7, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAriana

Oh dear God, that cake is giving me flashbacks from my own c-section!

September 7, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJedi Knight Ivyan

OMG...Sorry, but it got me wondering what Porky Pig was doing in there...

Open wound cakes?? Ewwwwwwwwwww!

September 8, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterbrokensaints

I just want you to know that this blog is giving me nightmares. Well, not nightmares necessarily, but weird dreams. I went through your blog a bit yesterday after coming home from a long day working as a nurse at a nursing home. I had a dream about elderly people making cupcake cakes. Aaaaaaaaaargh!


September 8, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterNicole

That cake is awesome...not at all scary, even though that will be me in 5 weeks.

September 8, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

I recently had my son through c-section. After seeing this cake, I'm so bummed that my hubby didn't surprise me with such a creation. The hospital should give these routinely to women who have c-sections. *rolls eyes* That cake is repulsive. Blech.

September 8, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterErica

a late abortion cake was my first thought.

September 8, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterlittle gator

That is truly disturbing. Also an apostrophe catastrophe. "Thats [sic] all..."

September 8, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterBecky

oh. my. God.

September 8, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterglamazini

That one really takes the cake. Ba-dum-bump.

September 8, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterSuzy Voices

I'm a labour and delivery nurse and I think this cake is brilliant! We would happily buy this cake and enjoy it at one of our parties-granted we all have warped senses of humour, but you need one to be a nurse, lol!
Well done, whoever made this cake!

September 8, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterVicki Grafham


Oh my lord. That is quite possibly the most disturbing cake I have ever seen. Ever. Ever,

September 8, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterKirsten

Tell me the Dugger's ordered this cake.

September 8, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

I lol'd hard, and was thankful that it's a C-section cake and not a "natural birth" one as I'd first feared.

Of course, that second one has probably been done too. Ew.

September 9, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMentalspewage

As my WV I got 'rechly'. Indeed. Actually, I kinda love this utterly gross and repulsive thing, cos I'm thinking it's ideal to serve at a party with all my family and friends who still insist that I should, and/or eventually will, change my mind about being childfree - this might just be what I need to get the message across.

September 9, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMaggiethecat

Nice. Considering I just had a C-section one week ago, I love it, actually!!! :-D

September 9, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterWinona

Oh, I think this is hilarious! Sick and wrong, yes, but it gave a laugh.

September 10, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Omgosh. That's sick! And I have been in the operating room to see C-sections. UGH! My eyes!! >__<

September 10, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

A little disturbing but funny as heck!!!

September 11, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterCandee

If this is the wrecker's idea of a c-section cake, I would be afraid to see their depiction of a VBAC.

September 12, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJustALittleBit_Me

"That's all, folks"? Seems more like a miscarriage cake to me.

September 22, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterCake Zombie

I submitted this was a celebration cake for a delivery nurses' last night shift.

September 23, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterNic and Amanda

Heh. "Labor" Day. I get it. Cute, but disturbing...

September 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAdri

There is nothing about this that celebrates LABOR. A C-section, in general, should not be celebrated, and there is NO labor involved. A bad misguided pun and a very unappetizing cake - on many levels. Disgraceful.

June 14, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterClareH

I hope "That's All Folks" doesn't mean that's all there is to it, that a c-section is so easy. I've never had one myself (two vaginal births, one an unassisted home birth), but I'm sure there's nothing easy about it. And even if that's not what they're saying, c-sections are nothing to poke fun at...especially with the rate in America at a whopping and unheard of 33%!!!

June 15, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterKathryn Packard

...are we sure that is supposed to be her...stomach? ....or did the baby reach out of the OTHER hole?


November 2, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Why can't I shake the feeling that this cake is red velvet...?
