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? ;)

Well, That's Horrifying

You know, I thought eating a cake baby was wrong.

I thought it couldn't get any worse. (At least not legally.)





Michelle M., I am never eating meatloaf again.

*sound of uncontrolable shuddering*

excuse me, I'll be back in a moment. As soon as I finish barfing my guts out.

When I first saw this, it looked like a suma wrestler wearing a bacon "mawashi". I wonder what it looked like after it was cooked.

October 28, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSusan

Dammit!! Why didn't I listen to your warning about it not being able to be UN-seen!!!! Where's the bleach.....

OMG What the crap is that?? I think I just threw up a little LOL Why oh Why would anyone think that is ok??? Just wow!

October 28, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJenn

Well, at least he was wearing underwear! It could have been worse:)

That's a little too Jonathon Swift for my liking.

Makes the baby cakes seem almost cute.

Let me start by saying that I understand if you don't publish this comment. That said, this photo is very disturbing, but as a Child Welfare worker, I have to say I have seen worse... Let's just leave it at that.

I call heads! I love meatloaf in any shape and I would have no problem lopping off a tiny little leg and destroying it. I don't really understand what the big deal is, after all it's not a real baby. I think it's an incredible idea for a Halloween dinner party and I plan on using it for mine next year.

October 28, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

I just screamed.


Holy crap, it looks like a burn victim!

October 28, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAmanda Mac

Oh my sweet Jesus. WTH is that nasty thing??!! I will have nightmares about this one.

That is just so wrong on so many levels.

There are some pretty sick twists in this world.

And now that picture is burned into my retinas. Make it leave my brain!


October 28, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterIce Queen

the three things that come to mind are:
1) OMG
2) Why?
3) Where's the eye bleach?

So, my first thought was, "What a freaky-looking cake."

Then I went, "Wait, is that diaper made of bacon?"

And then I looked again, and said, "Oh my god, that's a meat baby!"

Gross. And the thought of cooking it is even grosser. The whole thing is just nasty.

October 28, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterkingshearte

I may have nightmares tonight... All I could think of was creepy baby Voldemort in the 4th book!

October 28, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

That is awful. I feel a little queasy.

October 28, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

I think even Jeffrey Dahmer would be horrified by this. . . thing.

October 28, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Without a doubt the worst wreck ever!

October 28, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterA Girl In Her Kitchen

I showed the picture to my mom and her response was, "What is it? It looks like that baby has some horrible skin disease."

October 28, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous


However, I lol'd at the bacon diaper.

October 28, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterÆryn

Baby Tartare? It needs a raw egg and crackers.

I thought it was really funny, but I only know two people who would share that opinion.

October 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterLaurie

I looked at it and my lip curled. Though I think the bacon diaper is funny it was they eyes and little hands that grossed me out...until someone said what would that look like cooked- THAT'S the gross thought!!

(and I love zombie movies)

Wow that is the creepiest cake I've ever seen in my life!

Maybe it could be Hannibal's birthday cake? But on a side note, a meat loaf and bacon cake would taste pretty good, but one too many baby cakes will lead to a heart attack.

I know I am the worst person ever, but I kind of see what it looks like cooked. In for a penny, in for a pound.

WV: ingess. I am not sure I would be able to ingess the meatloaf baby.

This is exquisite. Put a pair of sunglasses on him and dangle a ciggy from his lips. Hilarious.

October 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

I used to love meat loaf.. sobs now I can never look at it the same way again lol. Why do they do this??? Some sick cannibal cult? Or just crazy people lol either way.. ick.

October 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

I didn't know there was a totally inappropriate use for bacon -- until now. Thank you very little.

"Iron Chef Hannibal, how did you answer the meatloaf challenge? YIKES! COMMERCIAL BREAK, NOW!"

A sprig of rosemary would have been perfect. Wait for it...

October 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterCraig

OMG WTH!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Why would someone do this? There are some really sick people out there!!!

October 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterKimpossible

Look at the Meat baby.

Now, imagine it cooked.

Now, imagine it lurching towards you, along a darkened corridor, leaving a trail of small, misshapen, greasy footprints, a gleaming carving knife in it's crispy, burned hand....

October 29, 2010 | Unregistered Commentermorriganscrow

Good heavens. Horrible. I'm afraid the eyes will be haunting me in my sleep.

After getting over the first shock though, I have to admit it is pretty well made, proportions and all.

wv: phyphru - the sound of my morning coffee getting sprayed all over the laptop when seeing this.

October 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterViiriäinen

Oh Good Lord, what on Earth was THAT?!?!?! Geeeze, thanks, I think I will have nightmares! That is right up there with the "Birth" cake. I had the unfortunate pleasure of doing one a few years ago- absolutely horrifying!! But LOL, it is Halloween....

October 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Oh, this is perfect with the Lady Gaga meat dress. Spawn of Gaga?

October 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJudy

This is a good idea for my halloween dinner,haha

October 29, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterphotolover

The only way this could possibly be worst, is if it was TURKEY BACON!

October 29, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterkurleegurl69

Someone save me a piece of the brain!

October 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

That is wrong on so many levels! The eyes! Those hands!
And you have to cook it, in your oven! And when it's cooked, you have to put a knife in it! I wonder, would you feel like you're having a nice dinner or taking part on a biopsy?
This is genuine nightmare material. (And I've never used that many exclamation marks in a comment before...)

October 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterHerma

I guess that's what it looks like to a sow, when you're making a bbq suckling pig.

October 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

My 14 year old's response:

OOH, I like my babies golden brown and crispy skinned.

Happy Halloween!

October 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSuBee

Well, now I know what my nightmares will be about tonight...

October 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterShannon

Here's another version, not nearly as well scuplted, but you can see it before and after being baked. Yuck.

October 29, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterbassgirl

Oh, no.

The eyes.

The, um - everything.

Oh, no.

October 29, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterania

O. M. G. It even has a belly-button!

I'm cracking up at the comments...
Baby GaGa
naming it 'Chuck'
the link to the other meatloaf baby

wv: hylecs: Hylecs pretty relaxed for a baby about to be baked at 350-degrees.

October 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

I literally almost threw up when
I saw that - are those ONIONS for the eyes?! I have 3 kids & thought I'd seen every gross thing possible. Not so.

October 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterLori

Is it really sick that I kind of want to see how it turned out after baking?
