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? ;)

George: "Clarence..." [clutching stomach] "I still don't feel so good."

Clarence: "Well I told you to be careful. I mean, what were you thinking?"

George: [groaning] "I don't know! It was just all so good! "

Clarence: "You should have stopped after that bowl of nuts. Or the box of raisins. And I wasn't going to say anything, but that third martini wasn't the smartest thing, either. "

George: [whimper]

Clarence: "And then you just had to go for that bowl of maraschino cherries, didn't you?"

George: "Sorry."

Clarence: "Yes, well, that's all fine and good, but who's going to clean this up?

"'Cuz I don't need the wings that bad."

Thanks, Anyaa D. You enjoy that fruitcake, now.

That's the most disgusting thing I've ever seen on here. Was the wrecker named Raaaaaalph?

Wow, after a first look my initial thought was "why is there a punch bowl full of vomit on Cakewrecks?" Second thought: "are those wax beans in there?"

That thing is really disgusting!

This is disgusting- to make it worse I discoverd that the same cakes are sold at my local supermarket- I wonder if that is the source or if the same horror is found in other branches of the chain?

LOL this is the first time I've seen an Aussie supermarket Cake Wreck. Notice downunder, we don't even use frosting to hide our shame? And they'll still charge $14 for the privelege of taking home a vomit bomb...
Go woolies go!

WV: tallum...
Next time i go to do my groceries at Woolworths, imma tallum that their crappy fruitcakes made it onto cake wrecks!

I work at one of the fore mentioned Woolworth, in the bakery, and had the pleaser of dealing with those monstrosities! They came in frozen and we just baked them and glazed them. Another way Woolworth is killing bakeries.
