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? ;)

Time to play "Guess that Celeb!"

Ok, I know what you're thinking.

But hey, in some countries, Mr. Bean IS a celebrity.

(No, seriously, that's supposed to be Mr. Bean.)

Ok, try this one:

Give up?

Here, I'll give you a hint:

it's Zac Efron.


How about a little rock royalty?

"He's got mud on his face! A big disgrace! Curling that ribbon all over the place."

Yes, Freddie Mercury: we will Wreck you.

I don't know about you guys, but I like my cakes to have a good head on their shoulders:

Next we'll have to work on having good shoulders under the head.

Oh, and hey, Mr. Tupac Sugar, keep ya head up!!

(Yeah, I admit it: I had to Wiki him to find that song title.)

Poor "Cyndi." Her colors may be true, but time after time those cheeky wreckerators just wanna have "fun." With quotation marks.

'Course, if you think it would be weird to eat a celebrity's effigy, imagine what a weird Situation it is for them:

I guess they ran out of orange icing.

Ok, guys, party time! Grab that Lady Gaga cake; it's time to "poke her face!"

I would complain about this looking nothing like her, but frankly I think it's worse when the cake is a dead ringer:

"And for dessert, allow me to introduce Ray Lewis!"

Creeepy. Also, I've heard of linebackers being built like refrigerators, but this is ridiculous.

If you really want to bring your "A" game, though, then this next cake will fit you to a "T":

I sympathize with the inferior who gets that earring slice.

Thanks Ruzaina, Jenn, Sarah B., Lanique C., Bridget S., Kristy I., James M., Caroline E., & Chrissy K.!

OMG...I read cakewrecks daily to laugh at OTHER people's work...and I find MINE. I guess deep down I Knew it had to happen sooner or later. :)

oh, and the hair is raw chocolate cake, cut into thin slices

I thought the first cake was Dean Martin. I think it's the hair.

I also thought Zac Efron was Justin Bieber. Clearly I'm not up on my Generation Z teen idols because they all look alike to me these days.

I guessed Freddie correct even though he looks like he has a gland problem.

Ol' 52 looks haunted, and probably because the Ravens are quickly blowing their chances to get in the playoffs. Yep, I'm from Maryland.

Ok Jen when I have nightmares tonight over all of those scary cakes (especially that first one) I am going to crawl under my bed and pray that the wreckerators are found and run out of town lol. Man who could eat those???

When I first saw that last one, I thought, "Is that even supposed to be a HEAD? It looks more like..." Eurgh, I don't even want to think about it.

December 11, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

I was sure the first one was Klinger from M.A.S.H.

December 11, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

I thought that first one was Jamie Farr. Lol~Fräulein

I can just hear a party guest at the torso cake party..... "Oh, I want a nipple! And a thumb..."

December 11, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

I thought the first one was supposed to be Howard Cosell.

But I did get Freddie Mercury right.

December 11, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterLittle Luxuries

That is not so much Freddie Mercury as it is a Robert Z'Dar and Tom Selleck love child. I may have nightmares.

December 11, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSif

I thought the first on was Leonard Nemoy!

December 12, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

I never noticed the uncanny resemblance between Mr. Bean and President Obama until now. Huh.

"I guess they ran out of orange icing." BEST LINE EVER!!!!

December 14, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterannacakes

If I would eat the first wreck, I'd be thinking: "Vale homo qui est faba." (That's "Farewell, man who is a bean.") I gotta give Howard Goodall some credit for my thoughts! LOL!!!

Oh, why did they do that to Ray Ray? That Ray Lewis cake hurts my heart a little.
