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? ;)

Bunny Bashers

Team, I've called this meeting because someone is doing in our nation's bakery bunnies. Here's the evidence we've gathered so far:

A bevy of bunny butts buried in Baltimore...

...two truckloads of 'tocks terrified teens in Toledo,

...and this hare-raising tail (at least, we think that's a tail) all point to murder most fowl.

Speaking of fowl, here are our chief suspects:

Humpty Dumpty, hatched and dangerous,

...and the Lamb brothers, Bed and Hood:

Ironically, these two are on the lam.

Still, you should have no problem spotting them; just look for the blood-soaked Easter displays:

"Why hellooo, Clarice. If you recognize the movie I'm quoting, then you'll have no choice but to groan in pain. Heheheh. Excellent."

Jodi S., Jenny G., Jade B., Erin R., Jenna C., & Jessica S., I think you'll agree that we need to rename Erin a "J" name.

So Erin, do you prefer Jedidiah or Jehosophat? Lemmeno.

The red-eyed lamb made me laugh aloud. It was more of a "huh" mixed with a "whaaat?"

March 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterThe Boob Nazi

YIKES! Those lambs with the demon eyes are going to be a source for nightmares...

And are you sure those are bunnies, or just blobs of white icing? I can't tell the difference.

March 29, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterellemck1

The fifth one looks like a Tolkien creature. Like a mix between a lamb and an orc.

March 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterTaylor

ok, so on number two, they just pile up so much frosting on the top you drag it down and frost the rest yourself? The CCC duck would have some promise if it wasn't made of cupcakes!

March 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Why is there a Satanic lamb for Easter? I figured the lamb was supposed to be pure, not evil. Look at those red eyes! I'm keeping my distance from THAT thing.

One wonders if either of them will be cooked up with some Farve beans.

March 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterTrevor

OK, lemme get this straight. Doing a bunny face was just way too difficult, so someone decided it would be smart to do the butt instead? Who wants a butt cake? Ew.

March 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMiranda


I would have thought it wise to master the bunny faces before moving on the the butts... and those sheep are shocking.

March 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterFluffy Cow

wow, did Big Bird really hatch from a frilly pink egg?

March 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterLizziebeth

That first lamb is well done, except for the face! That ruined the whole thing!

March 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

I guess bunny butts are better than seeing creepy pink-eyed bunnies...or maybe not!

March 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterA Girl In Her Kitchen

Okay seriously, if you hadn't clued us in to what the bunny butts were I don't think I would have figured those out. Isn't one of the hallmark features of the Easter bunny his cotton tail? Is it just me, or are these bunnies tailless?

March 29, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterkjl

I've squinted pretty hard at these pics, and I can't see any resemblence to bunnies at all.

On the other hand, those homicidal lambs look all too real.

March 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterGary

While funny, I do think the bunny butts are cute. Some more so than others...that last bunny butt baker just HAD to outline the paws...couldn't let it go...much like this comment....that is all....really.

March 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterShawna Fay

I won't be sleeping tonight. Thanks.

March 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterHalf Assed Kitchen

That first one seriously freaked me out ... until I saw that it was supposed to be bunny feet. Then it just confused the crap out of me. Those poor bunnies!

And the lambs... No wonder Clarice needs them to be silent.

March 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAngie

I actually had to think about "Bed and Hood"....then laughed out loud...where do you come up with this?!

The bottom lamb looks like it's been offered up for Passover. Is that blood??

March 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterBecBec

Wait, a whole post and not a single pun on "bun?" The buns' buns are in need of puns, everyone!

March 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterCeci

Eeek, creepy lambs, kill and roast them quick!

If I was Humpty Dumpty and I was that lumpy, I'd be upset and going after some bunnies as well.

March 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterThe Black Dog

Yikes...I see now why Clarice could hear the lambs screaming...though perhaps she was actually hearing ME screaming.

March 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Those are truly frightening cakes! I agree that those lambs would scare the bejeesus out the children I know. Looks like the Easter bunny is stopping by with a vengance.

March 29, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterspunkymelos

Hey Jen, I was going to start by pointing out big "typo" in the first sentence, but since you said you were quoting a movie I'll let it slide this time...

btw, What were these bakers thinking? If they were expecting "Alice" to jump in these cakes after the rabbit they were sadly mistaken...

W.V. suaticie... the movie I think jen was quoting

March 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterVeggieT

the cake with a chocolate bottom looks like a sea anemone :p WTF is up with these cakes!!!!

March 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Is that last one the Sacrificial Lamb?

March 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterKymberli

Loughing too hard to comment rationally...LOL

March 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSimplySweeter

Erin should just be called Jerin from now on. Period. She'll get used to it.
BTW, those Imagine popping that on the Easter table after church. Sacraficial, indeed.

The red eyed lamb makes me think of a possessed goat!!! Connie

March 29, 2010 | Unregistered Commentertom

Okay, it took me a moment to realize that they are bunnies butts, but once I did I couldn't help but think that they're CUTE! Sad and wrong, but cute.

and lamb cakes are always wrong.

wv frose: on seeing the glowing red eyes of the demonic lamb he frose in fear.

March 29, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterlisagems

The first lamb would actually be adorable if it weren't for the demonic red eyes.

As for the bunnies, all I can say is that I, with my 0 experience with piping icing, could probably do a better job... and that is sad.

March 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterPatricia

I have literally just cackled out loud at: and the Lamb brothers, Bed and Hood...on the lam....excellent!
Thanks so much for my morning laugh.

GROAAAAAAN. Oh, the puns...

March 29, 2010 | Unregistered Commenteredonald

I'm glad someone explained to me that the red and pink spots were the paw pads. I can't tell you what my mind was seeing/thinking!!

March 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJron7667

Oh my goodness, those are some scary cakes!!!

March 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAshley

DEMON SHEEP!Carly Fiorina was right to warn us about them!

March 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterNewsCat

ok the first one, once I figured out what it was (even with your title I had to stare at it for a bit) wasnt so bad... the second & third? why on earth would the shove those poor bunnies head first into a pile of poo??? poor bunnies...

the satanic lambs though? I'm pretty sure those are a sign of the end of times...

wv: lonesse and the lonesse laid down with satanic lamb... who ate her.

March 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterNikki

Ahh. Nothin says Easter like a red eyed freaky lamb. Good times .. lol

March 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

The second pic looks more like the bottom of a sheep to me.

I'm not sure if that's more or less disturbing, though.

(Self, it's just a white blob with pink blobs, step away from the computer.)

March 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterDamon

Yecch. I mean, really, even if it is *cute*, who wants to eat a piece of A**?

March 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterEtiquette Bitch

Where's my nice Chianti?

WV: ortier.
These bakers ortier be arrested for such bunny carnage and lamb devilry.

March 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterPhotoGrace

Yikes. That first cake doesn't look at all bunny-like to me. What it DOES resemble is a fluffy white, adorable, pink eyed ...


Like this:

Go on. NOW try to not stay in bed with the covers over your head, Easter morning. I dare you.

March 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterNoni Mausa

Aww, the lamb was otherwise so cute! Did they run out of black jelly beans and think no one would notice if they used cherry?

March 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterTamara Marnell

I'd love that 1st lamb cake if it wasn't so evil :(

wv: preshou... I'm preshou that demonic lamb will be giving me nightmares

March 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterChantelle

It's the Demon Sheep!


March 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterChandani

Any help with the "truckloads of 'tuttocks" and "on the lam" photos? I've tried three different browsers and every trick I know, but cannot view those two photos either in context or separately (they either won't load or I get a "Can't Load/Timed Out" error page). (I'm at work, so we have huge, honkin' ethernet access) Thanks!

March 29, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterflying gargoyle

Who would have thought that I'd be more frightened of an Easter cake than a Halloween cake? My children would have nightmares if I brought one of those home.

March 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterLaury

What is going on all around the second lamb? The crazy fences and random clutter are even weirder than the lamb. It's like someone went into the bakery and said: "Can you make it look like a living nativity gone horribly wrong? Oh, and if possible, I want the lamb to look breathless and wild-eyed, like it has been cornered by animal control. Thanks, I'll pick it up on Saturday."

March 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

It took me a while to figure out what the first 3 cakes were. I think I'm just going to stick to the old standby of coconut coated cake with plastic floatsam bunny head and Easter grass that inevitably sticks to everything.

March 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSLizzy

I also wondered what the second bunny did to deserve being pushed head first into a poo-pile. A festive, Easter poo-pile.

That hatched Humpty Dumpty has a serious muffin top!

My mom makes a lamb cake every Easter and yes, it is red velvet.
