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? ;)

Cakes Only A Mother Could Love


I think the following cakes are really special. Like seeing a beautiful newborn for the first time, these baby shower cakes leave me… well, speechless.


What a coincidence! E.T. was on my TV today, too!


Ethan... phone home...
(and tell your parents Jersey Shore called. They want their tan back.)

"Hi, bakery? I have a baby shower coming up. Do you make cupcakes?"



"Baby shower CUP cakes? Yeah. We can 'handle' that."



If you squint your eyes, it’s actually not a baby at all, but a bronzed, muscular man in a tank top popping out of the cup. See it? See it? Let’s call him Joe. He must be posing for his mug-shot. Just look at those eyes! He really knows how to espresso himself, doesn't he?

Thanks to Dawn M. for finding these little bundles of joy. It's been a latte fun!

Cake #1: Just plain freaky. Those eyes are disturbing.
Cake #2: An ugly baby in a tea cup. Why??? It looks like a little pig sitting in green slime.
Sounds soooo yummy...NOT!
