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? ;)

Is It Just Me?

I am trying to figure out how the this monkey's anatomy...

The banana-holding hand seems to be jutting out from just below the elbow, one arm seems to be coming out his backside, and his "legs" are mere stumps.... unless one of them is his penis and his chest is somewhere around his ass.

He looks very happy despite his deformities.

Ironically, the code word to post this comment is butoc...

That monkey has boobs... and a penis... :O

Also I would very much like to win stuff!!!!

November 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnna

I really want the book!

November 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMelanie Withrow

I would go bananas for a book!

November 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterBrenda

Yikes! His cafe is creepy enough, let's NOT put it on a CCC!

Free book AND autographed? Yes please!!!!

"Hi, I need to order a cupcake cake for my kid. Yeah, he really likes monkeys. I don't, but I think Jerry Seinfeld is kinda hot. What can you do for me?"

November 5, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterjody

Bookity, book, book.

November 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMarlo

Monkey see, monkey do!

November 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterDarcy and Sharon

I wouldn't have guessed it without the picture comparison, but I do see it.

I'm also sort of wondering what the deal is with the fudge line and the two all tan-frosted cupcakes. Given the positioning, I find it a little disturbing.

November 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterLori W

Both pix are scary! Beware banana-wielding monkeys! And banana-wielding comics, especially those who aren't very funny. *snark*

Love the blog, and Epbot too! I read every single day and love to share my favorites with my friends. I'd love a calendar or book, too!

November 5, 2010 | Unregistered Commentershyspy

That's just disturbing.

I would love to win, since I never win anything. In fact, if you don't pick me, then no soup for you!

November 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAllison

Can canadians enter the contest. I would love the book. Or the Calendar but the book would be great!

November 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterCanadian Emily

What's with the monkey-boobs?

November 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterReyna

Maybe the dingo will eat the cake wreck. Otherwise, no soup for you!

This would be my comment of the day. :)

November 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterskatebettyT

All I can think now is: Why is Jerry Seinfeld posing with a banana and smiling?? WHY.

November 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterNaomiKnight17

Here's hoping this comment wins.
*tries to decorate comment like a "winning comment"* ... *fails*

I'm going to resort to begging. PLEASE!!!!!! OH PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!

November 5, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterblah blah

I want to eat eat eat eat eat apples and bananas

November 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterKristy V

Scary resemblance, that is.

I'd love a calendar myself. :) Love this site!!

November 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterGalFromAway

And the fact that it's a CCC makes it an extra smack-down on JS....

November 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSoupAddict Karen

Thank you that I'm not the only one thinking the monkey has a rack! :P

November 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterGot Appies?

Could it be a cupcake representation of the "master of my domain" episode? What with that banana and all...

November 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJennifer M.

oh my. calendar? I would get NO WORK DONE that first day of each month. Yep. I like :D

(thank you for all your hard work & writing)

It's really hard to look at that monkey's nose and NOT have my mind go to the gutter...but maybe that's just me?

November 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterShelly

All that Jerry Seinfeld needs is the tail. Or does he already HAVE one?....lol!

November 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterRachel

Whoah... luv Seinfeld and see the uncanny resemblance.. but those cupcakes make me uncomfortable to even look at!
ABsolutely love Cakewrecks and wanna' a signed book AND a calendar!
Hugs and Blessings ~

"I mean, they're yellow now but then they turn brown. I don't get it. You know, fruits need to have more color-friendly skins if they want me to eat them. I can't do all the work. 'Oh, hurry up and eat this banana because in two days it's going to turn black!' That's too much pressure. Fruit is stressful!"
That's my Seinfeld.

That's crazy! Pick me! I'm a stay at home mom of 2 boys and this is my only link to the outside world!

November 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAiden and Parker

I'd loved to have a calendar. Thanks!

November 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterDavid Vickers

I never liked Seinfeld. But I'd love a copy of the Cake Wrecks book! :P

November 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterShelagh T

Disturbing! (The CCC, not Seinfeld!)

November 5, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterdw

Too funny!

November 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMarlene

Definitely a heck of a cupca-wreak :)

November 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSinistral tyger

Jerry! I miss Jerry.

November 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMamaChristy

What does a monkey say? "Ooh ooh AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!"

November 5, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterlilhoek

why is there an extra cupcake coming out the top of the monkey's banana hand? just another reason to Dislike CCCs!

November 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterM

You know who that monkey also looks like? Betty Rubble. Look at it... look at it... see?!

November 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterGinny

I can't think of anything better than a Cake Wrecks calendar! Will you also be selling them?? Who needs a calendar full of pictures of your child up at your office when you can have one full of wrecks???

November 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterValGal

What's the deal with that monkey's big pink boobies?

November 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterTarri

The only thing better than cake is cake on a CALENDAR!

WV: derre -- a very small derriere, obviously on someone who isn't eating a lot of cake.

November 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAmy Guskin

pick me IN ALL CAPS

Kristy

November 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

No, it's not just you. But what the heck are those things on the underside of that monkey?

November 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterKristine

Jerry Seinfeld? Maybe...

Screech from Saved by the Bell? FO SHO.

November 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSusannah Banana

Wait...now why does the monkey have boobs, exactly? I'm confused. No...for reals.

November 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJingle

Ring ring ring ring ring ring ring

Pick me pick me! Please. :)

He's always look sorta simian to me... not that there's anything wrong with that!

November 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJRose

Eek! That's almost worse than clowns!

November 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterDaisyDee

Hey, and the resemblance is topped off my the likeness in the reverse toupee thing they've both got going on. Coneheads?
