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? ;)

A Little Late to the Meme

Hello, Wreckies.

Look at this cake you want:

Now look at the cake you got:

Now look at me:

Now look at this other cake:

Now back to me:

Look down.

Now back up.

This is a horse:

Now I'm pink.

Now look at the Jonas Brothers:

I'm a pirate.

Valerie, Olyvia S., Stacey, Rebecca M., Kayleen W., Tamara H., Shannon S., & Mandy R., I think these jokes may be little stale. Eh, I guess that's what you get with
old spice cakes.


Update: The Jesus Raptor painting was originally done by Monty Propps. The original painting of Jesus with the lamb was done by Del Parson.

Oh wow..just..the Jesus Dinosaur one has me laughing, though honestly he should be riding one..not cuddling one. Otherwise I hate to say it but that cake dosn't belong here. Unintentionally Funny is the key here, I think the artist and the orderer both knew exactly what they were doing. Still a great cake and got me a laugh..but it should have been sunday sweetened in a huge purposefully hilarious post :).

That last line is classic.

I also have to give the Jesus holding baby dinosaur a big thumbs up. The edible paper gets a pass from me on that one. Or maybe it would just be best on a poster. But well done considering the medium.

That is the Jonas Brothers in their goth/punk phase, I believe.

Even with my totally non-existent artistic abilities, I do believe I could recreate the fish cake. That wreckerator should be flogged with a halibut.

Totally loving the Jesus cake. Hope Curly-T will update us after the church dinner ("I've got to find a way to replicate the Jesus and raptor cake for my church potluck this Halloween. It MUST be done!").

Your follow-the-leader text had me totally laughing.

I recently watched and episode of "Lie To Me" and was reminded of the term 'change blindness'. I think that may be what some of the Wreckerators hope for. But you didn't fool me, I totally know you weren't a pirate when the game started!

Is that supposed to be Jesus in the Land of the Lost? Bizarre.

Also, your search box results page rules!!

I didn't realize there was enough of a demand for anti-evolution cakes that they'd have their own edible images! Pretty scary.

October 20, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterKara

I think the Jesus-holding-a-dinosaur cake just redeemed photo cakes in my eyes. Any process that can produce a cake that majestic can't be *all* bad.

Love, Love, Love the Jesus hugging the dinosaur cake!!!! The weird CCC girl reminded me of Angelica Pickles from "Rugrats" at first, then later of a muppet. Why would anyone make a "cake" like that?

This is anonymous because of my closet crush on the Jonas Brothers.

Can anyone tell me what a etickili is? it was my verification word.

October 20, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

I love that commercial! hahaha.

The CCC girl could be Pippi Longstocking? Or just yet another example of the monstrosities that are CCCs....

Gotta love the morphing cupcake girl!! Who knew she could pull off a horse head AND a pirate... That's some talent!

October 20, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterTanya

I really love the cupcake girl cake. I think it is a very very easy cake to create for my kids. It is so much easier than creating a" rel="nofollow">cheesecake... lol...

Remember, Raptor Jesus went extinct for your sins. (It's true, look it up)

Sadly, there is a whole museum of things like Jesus cuddling dinosaurs. Admittedly I sucked at being a Christian even as a kid but I don't remember the bible mentioning dinosaurs...and I don't think they'd have left that part out somehow.

October 20, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Wow. Jesus and the dino is now my profile pic. Just awesome.

I want JURASSIC JESUS cake for my birthday!!!!

October 20, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterBeth

I'd hate to find that horse's head in my bed!

And the Jesus Dino has me thinking of the Bill Hicks routine where he envisions a Jesus and the Dino episode much like an Aesop's fable.

October 20, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJessie

Double love.

There are no words for the Dino-loving-Jesus cake. (Altho, I, too, want to know what kind of occasion that was for!)

The expression on the pirates face reminds me of this:

It reminds me of these cards.

EXCELLENT post. Love. Love. Love. (you guys...for the cakes, it's more like AUGH AUGH AUGH)

To all the fans of the Jesus and a dinosaur cake, the image on the cake was first posted as an entry to a photoshop competition on the website in the challenge "photoshop creationism" (nsfw due to some adult humour). Link:
Since then it has been all over the web, but to see it on a cake is ace!

@ Elaine Patton

I'm also really surprised at the number of people for whom the Jesus/dinosaur pic is new. It's a very well done photoshop though, and not a terrible cake.

I would imagine it's a birthday cake. I had a friend who had that picture as his profile pic for a very long time and he would adore such a cake (actually, I sent him the Cinderella/dinosaur cake too). I'm guessing the recipient was someone else who also enjoyed the image. Not to ruin any fantasies of those imagining crazy fundamentalists having creation parties or anything, but I'm guessing it was more likely the birthday party of a 20-something year old guy.

You're killing me John!! That was hysterical! I hope Jen puts your name on the next Cake Wrecks book, you deserve it.

October 20, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterY

Okay, can someone who is biblically well-versed explain the Jesus-with-a-velociraptor cake? I'm not religious, but I don't remember that at all, and quite frankly, it makes no sense.

Now Adam and Eve with a velociraptor...that would make sense. I'm not saying nudity with dinosaurs is dessert-appropriate...I'm just saying...

Ahem. Nicely done Jenn, I was expecting you to do one eventually.

I am sure that the dino/Jesus picture is a Photoshopped image done by Monty Propps, a user on

I was able to hold back the laughter and tears cause I am in a meeting, But I snerked out loud at Caroline's comment. Raptor of Christ. Have to stop reading comments now.

Has everyone else missed the fact that there's a picture of Jesus on a CAKE? That means someone has to eat his face. Just sayin'.

You all know the Jesus picture is photoshopped, right? The original is Jesus holding a lamb with mountain back ground.

The "artist" swapped the lamb for the raptor and changed a mountain to a volcano and added a small pterodactyl. Wa-la.

If you want to see the original, just google "Jesus and lamb picture" and you'll find it.
