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? ;)

Rabbit Food

[singing] "The bunny, the bunny, ohhh I ate the bunny."

Or, uh, whatever these things are.

Holographic rabbit ears? I bet those get a lousy reception.

Do not look directly into the eye of Mara!

Now, picture a cartoon mouse flattened by a piano.

Or, just look at this:


You know, I'm starting to think maybe shredded coconut isn't the bunny cake cure-all:

Somewhere in that haystack may be the rest of him.

What the...??
Are these on food court trays?

And yeah, they look like alien gophers wearing plastic rabbit ears. There's that, too.

[rapid blinking]


I'm sorry; those "ears" have robbed me of the capacity for coherent thought. And the pink yo-yo thingies jammed into the jawline? I can't...I mean, I don't...That is to say, I have Huh.

[puffing out cheeks]

[scratching head]

[tapping fingers]

Right. Well, I'm going to wander off aimlessly now, in the hopes of finding something to restore my sanity. The rest of you feel free to talk amongst yourselves.

Ashley M., Sarah F., Anne B., K&J, Gail R., Laura S., & Brooke I., I don't want to tell you a joke that is funny I just want a plate and a fork and a bunny.

Update from John: Apparently, what we took to be food court trays are actually meat trays which I think we all can agree, is sooo much better. And it raises a question: is it even cake or is it some lovely ground chuck slathered in mashed potatoes? The world may never know! (Unless, of course, somebody bought one and ate it. Then we'd probably know. Ya know?)

that second one looks like the Trix bunny tried to steal cereal from the wroooong kids!

The alien gophers look like they have bosoms!! What is that about?

Since when did people think it was okay to smash a bunch of cupcakes together and decorate it as one big blob?? I just don't get it! It NEVER, NEVER, looks good!

Are those hot dogs on the ears of "rabbit" #4?

I usually don't comment because the cakes often leave me speechless, but I must say you win 10,000 internets for mentioning the Bunny Song from Veggietales!

March 31, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSami

If those are food court trays, those are mighty big "bunnies". They must weigh 10 lbs a piece. I particularly love the black olive eyes. The children will be fighting over the piece with the big salty black eyes!

#5: the yellow coconut cake with the evil,scary,demonic clown-face type bunny thingy on it...AUUUGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHH (runs screaming into the next room)

March 31, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterBarbara Anne

The first one's a rabbit? I thought it was a mutant taco. Coulda fooled me.

And as for the rest . . . well, maybe that's what any future aliens look like.

Oh who am I kidding! That stuff doesn't even look of this galexy!

And I thought my bunny cakes were terrifying!

March 31, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterEden Kitty

My husband looked at the meat tray bunnies & said, "Uh... why do they have boobies?" I almost fell off my chair. He's right. Are those cheeks or boobs? And why do alien bunny/gophers need boobies?

March 31, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAngie

Angie, I thought "BOOBIEEEES!" too!

WV: susnee: I susnee some help to figure out why the BOOBIEEEES!

March 31, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

That 2nd one is just scary! Seriously.

On the other hand, you should label the meat tray ones NSFW. Those have bunny boobies showing! Oh yeah, bunny boobies!

LOVE the Veggie Tales reference!! I now like you even more. But I can't get Mr. Nezzer out of my head...

Whoo Hoo Jen for the Veggie Tales Reference! The bunny the bunny, oooh I love the bunny!!

Ya know the only cute thing on any of those cakes was the 'chicks' on the side of that first blue bunny cake. Other than

March 31, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMary

That last cake looks like the wreckorator used jalapeƱo pepper molds for ears...

April 1, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterStillapill

Veggie Tales quotes make this post so much more amazing than usual, which is hard to do. =] Rack Shack and Benny was my favorite for a long time.

April 1, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterArielle

Someone loves coconut to make those cakes.. I can't even tell if that first cake is a bunny or an alien with rabbit ears. Even one of the chicks has fallen over in laughter at that thing. And those two whatchamacalits on the meat trays.. maybe they are piles of meat disguised as deranged rabbits I can't even stop laughing to tell what the heck the wreckerator was up to on those.

April 1, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterArlene

As horrible as that blue bunny cake is, those are really cute frosting chicks next to it. How can the same person produce an adorable frosting chick AND that round monstrosity?

April 1, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterStacie

i have to agree on the veggie tales references, they are awesome!

April 1, 2010 | Unregistered Commentersarah

That second cake reminds me of the HypnoToad from "Futurama".

Jen, seriously did not think I could love you anymore--and then you busted out the Veggie Tales reference.

April 1, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterHermione

Kudos to the VT reference! (I didn't even watch the video--I just started singing it as soon as I saw the sentence xD)

April 1, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAmanda

veggie tales! awesome! :) it's better now that i'm older and get more jokes.

April 1, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

I dont want a tissue when my nose is runny, I just want a plate and a fork and a bunny ...

Love the reference. Like you could have rocked more - you've outdone yourself. This is by far my favorite blog ever. Excellent work, as always.

April 1, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterBarb

My one daughter thought the first one was an Easter bonnet. I could totally see that. Especially since it's blue. (Blue Bunny is just an ice cream brand, wreckerator!)

then we have bunny cow or a goat, depending on the kid.

#3) bunny earmuffs or a snowflake.

4) angry bunny or bunny in chicken soup

5) bunny sticking out of hay, or hungry bunny, hungry because he's eating the hay.

Then comes the new breed of Bunnycow. or Bunnyreindeer with a pig nose. then pigreindeer.

When I think Easter Bunny, I think Antlers. Doesn't everyone?

That poor bunny in the first picture. Did someone shove something up his butt?

I would totally buy the shocked (frozen?) blue bunny just for the laughs.

VEGGIE TALES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! EEEE!

On the bright side,you won't have much guilt in your head about eating those bunnies. By guilt I mean the kind you get thinking "Omigod, it's so cute I can't eat it". Guys, you probably don't have this. And with the alien gophers, I could have sworn those ears were antlers when I first looked at them. the cheeks of the one rabbit look like playdoh hamburger patties. In fact, I think I can see a bit of the other half of the bun emerging from underneath its coconut"skin".

Those things on the food trays are Jackelopes!

I love this site so much. And I love not only the Veggie Tales reference, but that it's the version we're SUPPOSED to sing, instead of the naughty version... Many points of nerdery for that!
