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:

Thanks for all the laughs!

I bet fruity pebbles would taste great in a cake... and at least they look edible.

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterncsudancelover

I could go for some fruity pebbles right about now.


November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterNova

That onion rings "cake" is just disgusting looking! Here's hoping for free stuff.

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJennifer R.

Comment comment comment! I'm leaving a little comment :)

Also, I now want to go onto Rock Band and change my band name from "The Fluffy Kitties" to "Albino Pizza and the Tacos". Congratulations :)

These cakes make me fear fast food. Or rather, fear for the people who are making these cakes because they OBVIOUSLY haven't seen much fast food... *shakes head*

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered Commenteraj

Correct use of fruit pebbles on a cake, as colorful" rel="nofollow">"corals".

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterLisa

Is is a little weird that they had to write "pizza party" for the pizza cake. for one, that's not much cake for a party...for another if you went to a pizza party wouldn't you know it??? is it really imperative that they write it on the cake? really???

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered Commentersparky_writer

Perhaps we should be glad they didn't try to torch the top of the pizza?

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterChristine

There's a bakery near my house that makes fruity pebble rice krispy treats. Those are delicious. Pebbles on a cake...notsomuch. Awesome.

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterKelly

fruity pebbles...hmmmm. veddy veddy interesting.

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterdezreen

Okay I kind of like the taco cake! It would at least be a fun prank to play on someone if it were more realistic!
And I totally want that book!!

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJordi

They were going so well with the bugers(sort of) and then they half a#@ed the fries! Or it looks like they were trying to make a frosting wreck-plica of those kids weaved potholders from the 80's(anyone else remember those?) but pooped out in the middle nof it.

Great post.

Clearly they were referring to Donald, the Master of Ceremonies in the MC Donalds cake. :)

ROFL at the Taco Bell sign!!!!

Just wanted to let you know that you are my daily comic relief!

Dude, where's our cake?

And the trophy goes to.....the hot dog.

Oh, wait, there was no hot dog. That was my son's halloween costume.

I think I want some McD's for lunch!

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMarsi White

"Duuude, it's like...totally a taco..."
Well....thank gawd they clarified that..

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterThe Mocha Monster

Wow that angry-eye burger is freaking me out! Hope you had a great birthday.

Now I am off to tell others about albino pizzas.

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterCreativejuices

Oops, I was a little slow on the uptake on the last post... Trying to win on this one.

Love that Taco Bell support. HA!

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterBryna

Ok, those cake pics were funny, but I think the funniest pic was the Taco Bell sign. Hee, hee, the marijuana prop failed here in Arizona too.

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterrme

I actually kind of enjoy the fruity pebbles cake! Though a different cereal might be preferable...coco puffs, maybe?

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterGinny

I really should be writing my English paper now but this is so much better!

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterKathryn

Must. Have. Book. Or. Calendar.

Or I might just create a wreck, and then where would we be??

After reading this, I want taco bell, but the closest one is almost 40 miles away.

I think I deserve to win something since I have to drive that far to satisfy the craving todays post inspired! I'm heading there right after work!!!


PS ~ Just to let you know that you all helped save my sanity when I was in the hospital and recovering from surgery for the past two weeks.... I finally got caught up on all the posts from 2009! The only problem was that laughing hurt!!!


Wouldn't the cereal get soggy from the frosting?....or worse yet, the colors from the cereal would bleed into the frosting-ick!

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterhd

HA! That taco bell sign is freaking awesome!

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJingle

I probably won't win, but i wanted to post a comment anyway, since i really love your blog. It's almost always the first place i go when i get to use the computer. That burger with really creeps me out. I mean, TALK about FREAKY FOOD!
I would be cowering under my bed if that was my cake......

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered Commentermorgenbard

Man! Now I have the munchies! I guess I'll have to get some onion ringos on the way to work. Ooh, and some fruity pebbles. And... some fries! But not a taco... that would be overkill.

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMike

Are those REAL fries on that one? Ewww.

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterhomeschoolmommy

"Your repeated violation of the [Tastefully decorated cake] Statute has caused me to notify the San Angeles Police Department. Please remain where you are for your reprimand."

Can never think of Taco Bell without thinking Demolition Man

So hand over the taco cake (and three sea shells)

I have a feeling that hamburger cake is going to visit me in my dreams (nightmares?)

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterKaisee

The Pizza is what looks like a barbecue chicken pizza.

Also @ Heidi... I am utterly disturbed if that's what it is.. Making a taco ref to your CHILD? Who does that!? Ugh! No seriously.. Isn't that a euphemism used by creepy perverts and really horny college guys?

Really, really bad taste.


These Wreckerators are snugglyding the merchandise!

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterManda

the fruity pebbles confuse me. I mean, who eats fruity pebbles out of half a watermelon!!!!

I kind of love the it's a TACO cake though. cause its a taco!! how awesome is that?!?!

also, I wonder what taco bell's reasoning behind that sign is.. maybe thats their secret ingredient. And they want their tacos to be legal incase the FDA comes to check up on them... :P

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterLily Marie :)

Dang it Cali! I thought that finally the world would be educated about pot use so that the Blaire Warner's of the world wouldn't mistake a bong for a jellybean container.

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterHalesbales

Fruity Pebbles, or Pooty Frebbles?

**that made no sense**

***but that is okay***

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJuniorMintyFresh

Thanks for explaining the fries in that picture because I really thought it was a face gone wrong...

Love to get anything cake wrecky too!

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterKSlater

Albino pizza? Really, you've never heard of white pizza? It's my absolute fave!

Truthfully, the onion rings one is freaking me out. Like, really freaking me out.

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterTudor Rose

Hahahahahahahaha!! That angry burger was absolutely hilarious! And Taco Bell? LOL ;D

I love your blog and so does my wee sister! She's nearly 3 years old and uses sign language a lot of the time to communicate (it makes it easier to understand her when she's still learning to say a word. We taught it to her when she was a baby). Whenever she sees me on my computer she signs 'cake', indicating that she wants to see your blog! She always wants to see more and so do I - it's brilliant! Pick me, please! **CAAAAAAKE** XD

Lucy ;)

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterDragon-girl

Makes me hungry, gotta go find me the right kind of taco bell to eat at!

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMissy

Now I'm hungry for an albino taco pizza...............and fries. Thanks!

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMindyYoung

The yellow turd french fries freaked me out.

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterKaren

I think the hamburger cake is angry because he knows no one will buy him for $18.99.

"I would like to buy a damburgen!"

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJabby

Love to have a book to make me salivate for sweets during the long cold winter.

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMarilyn

I love how one of the burgers on the icing-on-cardboard-fries cake has no bottom bun. Because that much frosting should be eaten with minimal amounts of cake.

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterKelly

Taco Bell LOL FTW.

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJennifer

I love free stuff!
