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:

Love the Fruity Pebbles cake--but how very sad that the cake and the frosting are undoubtedly more nutritious than the breakfast cereal atop...ewwww.

ringos? really?!

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMama Bear

A Cake Wrecks book sure would put a smile on my face! But I'm sure that's what lots of people posting thought.

That angry burger cake will make me think twice next time I crave fast food. I'll see him glaring at me in my mind O__o

That Taco Bell sign is really sad.

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterDebbie

At least they weren't onion Ringo Starrs...

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterNicole D

I think we should give the wreckerator props for putting the fruity pebbles in a bowl from the stone age.

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterBrooke H.

If you need to label what the cake is, you should take that as a clue.

Leaving my comment because I'm always a loser, never a winner. :)

Onion Ringos? They're the Starr of the Bakery.
John, I know you like Daleks. And my son made the Seattle Dalek Cake. He'd love a free calendar!

The furry albino pizza is a CUPCAKE CAKE! You can see the cupcake sticking out underneath the tip. That makes it 17 times worse :/

Yo, yo, yo,
The name is MC Donald
and this is my cake
It don't belong to no Ronald
that's why it's got my name
written in frosting,
so don't get confused,
unless you cover the costing ...of $10.99
Then, yes, you could have it.

Okay, I'm no rapper, but that's what I thought when I saw "MC Donald's"

I've been internet-deprived for over a week, and this is my first chance to check out Cake Wrecks!

My WV is prolog: today's post is just a prolog to all the exciting stuff i missed last week.

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterKeeley

Wow. I'm a little disturbed how in touch you guys are with the whole munchies thing. I'm on to you, guys. I am SO on to you.


November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterLate

Want book! PLEASE!!
I'm not American, so I often can't even join in this kind of stuff. I hope this is international :-)

You guys rock! Thank you for my daily dose of laughter!

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterKristy P

Those "onion ringos" look like moldy Krispy Kreme donuts. Ewww.

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAngie

DUUUDE! I totally got the munchies now! And I don't even live in California.

Ok not that funny, but I must win a cakewrecks calendar. Just to hopefully erase the mental image of the onion "ringos" and fries. Ewww.

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterplanetnomad

insert offensive "choco-taco" comment here.

and the hamburger cake looks like someone decapitated Mayor McCheese!!

Wow, someone should lay off those brownies!

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterEMILY

Ha! I love the evil burger cake! And the fries that are bigger than the cake, wow.

I would LOVE a Cake Wrecks book!

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterCarissa

Wow, someone should lay off "those" brownies.

Pick me pick me! Pick Anna! Please!!

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnna

Actually I think that pizza slice CCC is the most well shaped CCC I have ever seen, it actually looks like a pizza slice! Not quite the right color though, proving once again that CCC's just don't work.

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

The burgers and fried kind of freaked me out a little. The one burger looked like the meat part had melted over the rest. Oye Veh.

Loved the Taco Bell sign! funny!

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterleannwoo

Me, pick me!!!

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterRobin

Congrats winners!
Now it's my turn!

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterjanitabean

I totally want to win! I think a Cake Wrecks book would be perfect on the coffee table! Especially during my son's upcoming birthday. We can compare his cake to those in the book!

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterPrairie

mc donald is so 5 min. ago ! (LOL!) :)

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterCaroline

The french fries on the one cake look like yellow piles of poo!! Who thinks of these things?


November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Seriously. Have those people Seen french fries?

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

"It's a Taco, Idiot!" hahaha!!

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterLittle Lovables

I went and googled "Albino Pizza", and was disappointed to find that the first results were a restaurant called Albino's Pizza, and not for a band started by Cake Wrecks fans. Oh well, give it time.

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterEmily

My daughter saw the angry burger cake and said "Mommy, that dinner cake is mean!"

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterRachel

Well, this post really made we want some Fruity Pebbles.
Can I still win the contest with no account?

me likey calendar.

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterLisaSlater

I once made a cake with a Count Chocula/icing filling. The cereal got a little mushy from sitting in the icing. I guess I should have used cereal that stays crisp in milk.

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterArlue

I don't know about you, but whenever I make a cake, a voice is whispering
"taco". Yes... A real taco probably cost lest though...

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterThe Queen

Bakerella must be shuddering right now at how they butchered her cute cupcake hamburgers. And is it just me or does that look distinctly like a poo burger? Why, why, why do people choose to decorate in brown buttercream? Why for the love of g-d!

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterLena Goodwin

The fries look like a sad first attempt at learning basketweave. You have to know how to do it for that to make sense. :)

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterbrenda

Definitely read it as "We Support Prostitution" at first. Uhhhh...

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

The fruity pebbles cake actually sounds good, but it should be confetti inside.

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterNJS

The 6th cake ... so _close_! Just a little more care with the frosting "ketchup" and we'd have a Vampire Burger.

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered Commentergamingkitty

Not to pull the sob story, but I was commenting on yesterday's post when I got the call that my son had fallen and broken his arm at his friend's b-day party. I'd love the autographed book. My son and I laugh so hard at the blog!

They were definitely snacking on some special brownies while decorating these. . . wonder if any of them made it to the display case :)

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterKat

That burger with a face will give me nightmares for a week. Ick!

And if it's ok with you, I'm pretending the give-away is in honor of my birthday too. (I turned 21 last Friday.)
