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? ;)

Wacked Out Wrecks

Some days you've really got to wonder: just what are they doing in bakeries these days?

And more importantly: if we ask, will they share?

After all, anyone who makes something like this:

(Blueberry iced cupcakes topped with wrapped cinnamon gum? Score!) clearly beyond the party-pooping cares of "reality."

In fact, sometimes I come across a cake so bizarre, so insane, so what-were-they-thinking?? nuts, that I have no choice but to tip the ol' metaphorical hat in respect.

A Styrofoam cup embedded in mold-flecked balls of yellow "soda" surrounded by a poo wall?

[tipping hat] Well played, master Wreckerator. Well played.

Megan A., Desiree C., & Amber T., I wouldn't recommend zooming in on that "soda" unless you're on a diet.

FYI, Trident does in fact have a blueberry flavored gum (Wild Blueberry Twist) which I'm thinking is what is on the cupcakes. That said, it still is not an excuse to put gum on a cupcake. Eww. Bacon would almost be better.

I also am wondering what the poo-hound clown duo is racing or running from. Maybe attack of the moldy popcorn/soda poo platter?

I like how they labeled the cup, but evidently that isn't what needed to be labeled. They shoulda labeled the yellow junk.

My four year old and I have been looking at all the "professional" cakes here and he's coming up with some great ideas about these cakes. The clown riding the giant dog across the finish line is for "'Clown Day' celebrated only by people in the circus, because that's the only place you can see a dog that big"
