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? ;)

It's ok: you can tell me I've been staring at cakes too long, and need to step away from the 'net for a while. I can take it.


Remember this guy from last year?

It's Admiral Ackbar!
Sure, he looks like he's offering you his heart, but..."it's a trap!"

Note: This is Admiral Ackbar:

Well, now I'm seeing his friends pop up in other Wrecks.

Be honest, now. If I told you to imagine a cutsie-fied version of a rancor beast, wouldn't something like this come to mind?

A rancor beast:

And from the context I'm assuming this next thing is supposed to be a bee or maybe a bear...

...but all I can see is a disemboweled Jar Jar Binks.

Granted, that could just be wishful thinking.

Haley B., Val L., & Sarah S., you are to wear these clown shoes and refer to yourselves as Mary. Why? Because I think this video is frickin' hilarious:

See, I kind of thought that the first wreck looked more like a wampa, the ice monster from Hoth:

Which makes it all the more disturbing that he's handing you a heart; is it his or one he's pulled out of a rebel fighter who got lost in the snow.

Hmm, that second one looks a bit like a Slitheen...

The bee-hive next to Jar Jar reminds me not a little of Jabba the Hut.

That thin on the "bear/honey/michelin-man " looks like it has a big ear on the stomach!

ugh! It is so disgusting!

That's not a rancor beast! It's the monster from Cloverfield.

Yeah, Anonymous, but I think George has always been in denial about Jar Jar. He couldn't seem to figure out why people didn't like him in the first place, and now it's just because we grew up with the original trilogy, not the 1st three episodes.

I also think the Rancor thing sorta looks more like ET.

And I love Robot Chicken. Just sayin'.

i think that first cake's supposed to have the ice creature from hoth that got luke - not admiral ackbar.

either way ;)

I really needed the laugh I got from the video. Thank you so much for adding great humor to my day....

February 18, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Are you kidding Jen ?
The third one is definetely Jabbah the Hut !!!!!
Disemboweled that is ...
Even though I like the idea of hurting Jar-Jar :)

Based on the lettering on that last one, the unidentified yellow 'being' was definitely supposed to be Winnie the Pooh. They were clearly very lax in their artistic interpretation...

Where's my honey?


(Sorry, but I would NOT wanna stick my hand into that menacing bee hive. It's watching us!)

February 28, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterET

That first one totally looks like a vulva.
