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.

It makes Rosemary's Baby seem cute.

October 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJuno

I had a dream about this last night.

It's kind of creepy when the meatloaf babies open their eyes and cry to be held. It's even more scary when you realize that there are bunches of them surrounding you.

Reminds me of a Harlequin Baby. Now that's freaky.

How nice. I guess slipping a main entree like that into an oven would be very appropriate at a reunion of former Nazi extermination camp guards.

Rosemary's Beefy Baby.

October 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterBree

Holy Mother of God that is scary!

October 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

A bacon diaper and glowing white eyes... super creepy.

Can't wait to see it with the ketchup on it though.

October 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

I was about to go get lunch, but I'm not hungry any more.

WV: exale. Pee the morning after a night in the pub.

October 29, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterelissa

I can't help it. I think it looks really good. For a meatloaf baby. With a bacon diaper. The person crafting it had some skills, though, I gotta say.

WV:topor What do you topor meatlaof baby with?

October 29, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterlangela

ummm, well that is just WRONG, no matter how you look at it. wrong, wrong, wrong!!!! BAD cook BAD.

October 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterTravelGoddess

This will haunt my dreams.

Glad I'm a vegetarian because I surely would be after viewing this.

October 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterLaura

You know, that bacon diaper will be much smaller after the "baby" is cooked (I can't believe I just typed that). There is surely not going to be enough coverage.

The maker of this "cake" needs therapy and a restraining order issued against him/her to protect the world's babies.

October 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Oh.. my... Who thought that would be a good idea?

October 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterCatstina

I think that's the worst thing I've ever seen.

And I agree with the first Anony... how do I unsee that?

AACK! It has zombie eyes!

October 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

This photo cracked me up! Here's one of a similar meat baby cooking.

October 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterBetty Crocker

Ugh that thing comes straight from the Uncanny Valley. Those eyes are so creepy. I'm so glad I saw this on my iPod touch instead of a regular sized computer screen because I'm not sure if my heart could handle seeing the picture full sized *shudder*

October 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterNina

For those (like me) who had to go looking for closure, here's 2 links with cooked meatloaf babies (albeit not this particular one)- enjoy...

October 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

I'm a medically required low-carb diet and have reached the point where the only meat I can stomach anymore is bacon.

Diaper-bacon on meat-baby has nearly ruined that.

Dear [deity], I need some brain-bleach or I'm going to starve....

ahhhhhhh WHYY????!

... WRONG...

Inconceivably, unquestionably WRONG.

October 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

I think that will haunt me forever.

October 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterKahla

Please... for the love of GAWD... tell me that is not meatloaf. I will never eat meatloaf again for as long as I live.

October 30, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterLisa

Wow, that has got to be the creepiest thing I've ever seen and I watch a lot of horror

October 30, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMary

Geez, you'd think people had never seen a traditional Halloween Meat Baby before...

Honestly though, I'm kind of stuck in between horror and making one for my next party...

October 30, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterjwaldo

Reason #293 why I'm glad I'm a vegetarian: nothing I eat will remind me of this cake. Even so, it will be a long, long time before my brain feels clean again after seeing that photo.

I can only imagine the conversation that led up to making this:

"Honey, I have a modest proposal for dinner tonight."

October 30, 2010 | Unregistered Commentertardis-stowaway

Well that's creepy, what's worse is I want to see what the cooked version looks like. LOL

October 30, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnnette

Maybe it is supossed to be Lady Gaga's baby. Hahahaha!

October 30, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterThe Cake Chick

No, snarkygurl, you're not alone in wanting to what it looks like after it's been cooked.

As horrible as it is now (I couldn't quite believe my eyes when I waw it), I still can't help wondering how it looked after being in the oven.

wv: bleraden - that's how the eyes will look after cooking.

October 31, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterws?

Husband: "Honey! Come and see what I made for dinner!"

Wife: silence... "That's not exactly what I meant when I said I was baby hungry."

October 31, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterVivian Guest

it kind of looks like the person who plays Mini-me in the "Austin Powers" film

October 31, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

I need to remember not to check CakeWrecks right after eating.

November 1, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterTrevor

That's terrifying :S

November 1, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterPicky Mama Scholar

Looks delicious. :)

I wouldn't mind eating that.

November 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterOlorin

Whoever did this did a great job. Everything is proportionate and well crafted. I'm with the other person who said I want to see what this looked like after it was cooked. I also want to know the story behind it; did they open the meat with the intention of making a meatbaby or were they forming the meatloaf and thought "Hmmm . . ."?

November 6, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterBj


*screams more*


*pause for gibbering*

Why? Why?!!!

A shrimp wrapped in bacon. My favorite. -Daniel (I do Birthdays.... will be here all week...)

November 9, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

I'm highly tempted to eat that.

November 18, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterpassing_by

O.M.G!!!! How did I MISS this one?!?!!? And how do I unmiss it???

November 19, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterphelpsgurl

erica: what? It's just a picture of Lady Gaga as a baby...

November 20, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

...normally I'd try to make a witty comment here...but nothing is coming to me.

All I can say now is that I have never been more thankful that I am a vegetarian. WOW. That is horrifying.

November 30, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterTrinity

And people complain about undead cakes. I rather have undead cake than baby meat monster.

January 5, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Guh, guh....

What went on in that sick person's head?

*stares at meatloaf baby one more time. pukes*
