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? ;)

Somebody Check Those Brownies...

...'cuz I think these Wreckerators are getting the munchies.

And it's really not pretty.

"Dude. You know what would be AWESOME right now? Fruity Pebbles."

Sure, that makes sense. Really. And go ahead and just put it out there on the shelf with all the other cakes, like it's not weird. Go on. Thaaat's it. Perfect.

"Naw, man, what we NEED are tacos."

How nice of them to write, "It's A TACO."

I guess there wasn't room for "It's A TACO, IDIOT."

"Ooooh, or PIZZA! Man, I am seriously jonesing for some pizza right now."

My friends, there is officially a first time for everything. Including albino pizza.

Oh, and "Albino Pizza" is the cool band name of the day. Tell your friends.

"Dude. Dude. Dude. LISTEN.

"We have GOT to get some fries."

"Aw, YES! From Mickey D's!"

"No way, man, I don't like the way their burgers look at me. So not cool."

(Admit it: a drug-induced hallucination would explain a lot here.)

"K, dude, forget the fries. We need something, like, totally bad for us. Something...AMAZING. Something like...onion ringos.

"Yeah, totally. What are onion ringos?"

"DUUUUDE. C'mon. Onion ringos? Like, with the beer batter and ketchup?

"OOOH. Right. Onion ringos. Yeah. Totally."


Hey Sarah, Michelle & Eli, Candy W., Crystal P., Allison P., Barbara, & Jason C., you know Prop 19 in California? The one that sought to legalize marijuana? Well, it didn't pass. And I know of at least one place that's pretty bummed:

I just love your humor and today's post made me LOL at work and my customers wonder. Yeah, I had to tell them about cakewrecks and the weed jokes. Love it!

Heh. Heh. This is....funny. Or something. I forget. I'm hungry. What was I looking at?

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMarla

Book, please. Please?

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAlisha

Well, maybe it's an organic pizza... they put some crazy things on those things... :)

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterGail

The taco cake wouldn't be so bad, if only they hadn't felt the need to explain that it was, in fact, a taco.

Also, a wall calendar would be perfect for my cubicle at work *resisting urge to waggle eyebrows*

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterBonnieM

Aww...poor taco bell. I guess they were hoping that they could join those bakers in hallucinating, only legally, now. :D

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterStoich91

Okay okay, I get it! I can't have cake because it has dairy in it! Do they have to create other foods with cake that I also cannot ingest? Really, wreckerators? Really?

I crave pizza. I do.

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterGreen

Duuuuude..... totally..... hhahaha! i wants stufffffff :D (satanic laughter haha)

Well, here is attempt number two at winning something wonderful from CW! I love you guys!

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJenn

How terrifying. Drugs are the only explanation!

The Taco bells sign was hilarious!

I'd love a copy of the book :)

Poor Taco Bell, not gonna get that steady rush of late night business thanks to everyone in the state having the munchies.

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterZombie Edward

I admit, my favorite part was the Taco Bell sign -LOL- But I am craving some onion ringos now...

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMichelle

I think I may have nightmares filled with angry hamburgers...I knew I should have become vegan...

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterLivingInSong

The question I have…did they really put onion rings on a CAKE? I have to hand it to whoever made them, if not, but still…it's definitely a 'what were they thinking' moment!

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered Commentermissoularedhead

I wonder what Cake Wrecks in England would be like?....

Come on fellow Brits, bring forth the wreckage!

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterpalmsoverhearts

A bowl of cereal cake? What's the point? Such talent. At least throw Fiber One on it and make it healthy.

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJust saying...

My co-worker and I loved the Taco Bell sign. You guys always keep me laughing.

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterDe

Seriously, where is the Pizza Rolls cake?

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAmy

"a comment"

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterPoonamB

These cakes are like. Whoa.

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterKar

Duuuuuude.... wait, what were we talking about?

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered Commenternikic_21

Mmm..Fruity Pebbles Cake... *laughs* Actually, that sounds like Do Not Pass Go, Do Collect Diabetes to me.

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered Commenter:: miss m ::

I may have nightmares about that hamburger. "It's looking at me, Ray." The Taco Bell sign is hilarious, tho!

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJasry

My younger daughter USE to be a Wally-world cake decorator. Although she was good, she hated to see what was made after she quit. Love your site, and have introduced it to a LOT of my friends.

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterPatty

The cognitive dissonance that the "baked" brain would experience: You know, thinking that you're getting a bite of taco, onion ringos, cheeseburger, etc...and then getting cake? That would, you know, be like a totally, like, unreal, like, feeling? You know?

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterFPGSPC Secretary

Oooohh! OOOhhh! [squirms in seat and raises hand enthusiastically] Pick me!! I want to be able to giggle at the Cake Wrecks book while sitting on my couch eating the amazing evil-eyebrowed hamburger cake that I now plan on buying.

Puff puff, give...puff puff give..

xo, Katydid

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterKaty

Oh, my. Oh, dear. The cakes are so ... hilariously wrong. But, ... but!, the commentary takes me to the 'bust-a-gut' level.

Thanks for another laugh, guys.

Prop 19: Weed have to think about that one awhile longer.

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAlisonH

I kept thinking of Fillmore from Cars.
"I'm not the only one seeing this, right?"

(Yay for freebies!)


November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Seriously! What's up w/the fruity pebbles?! Reminds me of my Aunt, who said, "what? I don't put sugar on Captain Crunch....."

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterRachel

The Taco looks more like a chalupa! LOL!
I love onion rings, I eat onion rings. Those things are NOT onion rings.

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJenifer

Whoaaaaaa Dudeeeeeee! I want to totally thank you for keeping me on my diet. These "cakes" lost their righteousness long ago.

Dudes Forever!

We need a Prop 42, you know: To make it officially and legally correct that the answer to everything is 42.

With the alternate answer being ice cream.

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAlex

I think I lost my munchies! (ick)

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterFinsFare

DUDE! Now I totally want tacos...


November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJude

Is it bad that I would still try the Fruity Pebbles cake? :) Happy belated birthday to John!

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAmanda

Mmm I do enjoy the Fruity Pebbles!

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMeg

Hungry now... Lunchtime perhaps... Talking like Yoda I am!!

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterKrantz

If those are real fries on that second McDonald's cake, I think it might just be the worst wreck I have ever seen. Imagining eating fries mixed with cake makes me gag more than anything else I have ever seen on Cake Wrecks, including those old dust-covered cakes!

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterHeatherB

If I dont win this time, I am not going to read this blog anymore.

Just kidding... how would I get through work without my lunch time cake break?

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterlilhoek


November 3, 2010 | Unregistered Commentermimiheart

Dude, now I have the munchies.

Where did I put those Fruity Pebbles?

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAllison

Does the funny stuff ever end?

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMorgan

Hahaha love this... I'm with the previous commenter who read this post with Jay and Silent Bob in mind. Brilliant.

On another note, the pairing of cake and onion rings in my mind is probably the only thing that has ever seriously threatened my unconditional and perpetual love of cake. The leftover mud cake in the fridge is safe for another.... oh, six hours or so.

wv: tator. How about a tator tot cake?

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterCarlyNZ

Why would you put Fruity Pebbles on a cake?? An "Onion Ringos"? I think I've lost my appetite!

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterCailin

Mmm, tacos. ;)

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterErik and Ashley

DUUUUDDDEEE you got any CAKE??

Ya'll are hilarious! :)

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterNatalie

so do you think the brownies will help us to understand the wrecks better??? they should be warned that its expensive to slowly rot your insides to look like some of these cakes.
