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? ;)

The #2 Way to Ruin a Cake

Step #1: Take a perfectly decent-looking cake

Step #2: Add random poo piles - just for giggles.

C'mon, everybody, sing it with me: "Chain chain chaaaaain! Chain of poos!!"

Eh? What's that? You think those are simply palm tree poos? Ok, I guess I could see that. But, can you explain...[dramatic pause]...THIS?


Actually, this isn't too much of a leap if you figure the customer asked for a "Princess and the Pea" cake. [wicked grin]

Then there are the stock designs with poo built right in:

Poor Wall-E. I bet right about now he's wishing the humans had stayed in space.

And to think: this is what "passes" for "cake decorating." But hey, maybe the designer was wiped out after a hard day logging too many hours, and got a little lax? If so, let that be a lesson to us all: don't push too hard; you'll only strain yourself producing crappy results.


And finally, a classic for the ages:

Beauty and the Feces.

I could have bought that the brown dots in the first cake were coconuts,but a whole trail of them on the left side has led me to believe that Curious George has indulged his instincts.

I actually thought the first one just looked like some poorly arranged kola nuts. The rest....there is no excuse.

I had to tell you guys this. Sometimes I'll tell my husband about the posts on Cake Wrecks, and the titles are just as hilarious.

I told him about this poo post and then told him about the title to this one, and without even thinking about he said, "what's the #1 way?"


I just burst out laughing and he suddenly got it and started laughing, too.

I just got the #2 reference! D'oh!

Oh-Oh-Oh my tummy hurts from laughing so hard-"Beauty and the Feces"--oh dear, oh dear,(holding tummy)your posts are dangerous to the health. Has anyone ever gotten a hernia from reading these?

E.M. Green - wow..your lyrics are amazing. *lol* I am totally hearing it in my head :D

I've never read so many poo puns in one post. Hilarious! What was that last cake supposed to be, anyway?

If you name your kid after a European city but add in some unnecessary letters (Mihlann), I'm going to assume you're too ignorant and stupid to ever travel abroad.

Chain of poos! *Classic*

Speaking of classics: Mary and such ilk. Here's a great FREE daily dose of humor and you want to fuss at them over the ads that make this site possible?

Dear, don't threaten, just do it. And have a slice of poo cake on your way out.

WV: donid = if you weren't such a wimp, you'd a donid already.

this was just what I needed today. Sometimes poo humor is all it takes to make me happy.
That last paragraph was pure genius!

We bought our son the Wall-E cake for his 6th b-day. The poo piles were supposed to be the cute little blocks he makes of garbage and tire tracks. It looked like poop all over the cake. It was sooo funny but really terrible looking.

My 3 year old explained it all. The Palm tree cake has grapes on it. The 2nd cake has a bridge on it. Wall-E and Eva were enough distraction, as was Wolverine. The last cake was she had to appeal to her 5 year old sister for help. The rose is apparently sitting next to a pile of pancakes.

I didn't know Wall-E could poop.

I needed a good laugh, and this post definitely provided it - thanks! It also cured my recent cake urge.

I've never commented, but I just had to throw in that I've never seen such a huge load of ____ ! {You know *wink*}

What was the last one supposed to be?? I can't figure out where they were even going creativly here.

January 22, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

How timely! Just as I was viewing photo no. 4, my 2 year old came up to me to tell me that he pooed.
