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? ;)

Uh, guys? Somebody might want to call an exterminator.


Well, you know those "crawfish" on the wedding cake?

(Photo taken down at the request of the baker. Please enjoy this lovely photo of Epcot.)

Yeeeah. They're looking a bit more like cockroaches.

Amanda L., those cockroaches look a lot more like cockroaches than any other cockroaches I have ever seen.

Oh it's the Spaceship Earth vs. Epcot thing again! lol

The photo is of Spaceship Earth. It is the icon of Epcot (fyi other readers, it hasn't been known as EPCOT Center in years). When people look at pictures of Spaceship Earth, they immediately associate it with Epcot, which is its intention...much like when people see Cinderella Castle, they associate it with the Magic Kingdom. Or the Tree of Life with Animal Kingdom, the Sorcerer's Hat with Hollywood Studios (formerly MGM). Most guests will look at those icons and identify it with the park, not necessarily the name of the icon itself. When my husband and I vacation at WDW and we take a picture in front of Spaceship Earth, we'll say "this is us in Epcot" because people are WAY more familiar with that.

Anyway, just a bit of info on why Jen's Epcot captioning makes sense...from a former cast member. :)

And as an added thing...if I was a baker (which you do NOT want to see), I'd actually be proud to have one of my wrecks on here!! :) Of course, I'd probably be just as happy seeing a Disney picture replace my horrible skills as well since I'm such a Disney nut. lol

the picture is of a ride at epcot called Spaceship earth, just so anyone wondering can know. too bad we had to get rid of the pic of the lobster weenie things :)

The baker had you replace it. Serves her right for making a ladies crawfish wedding cake look like it had penises all over it.

Lots of posts and I scanned through them, but I was wondering why the pic was taken down. The baker/"artist" didn't want it up? No permission what? Why does it matter? I'm sad I missed the "cock"roaches although I have a really bad image in my head so maybe its for the best.

Hehehe. This entry is even funnier with the photo of Epcot for no apparent reason. (However, I'm glad... sort of... that I saw the original.)

Totally lame... if you make a cake that bad you shouldn't get to cry and make Jen take it down.

March 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAngela

Ah, bummer--instead of tiny phalluses, I get big balls. That's what I get for showing up late.

Looks like some of the cakes are wedding cakes.

No! No!!! I ran a search for cockroach cake and now I'm gunna hurl for sure. I'm not squeamish but I never, ever want to see that page of images again. Those cakes make a real cockroach look like a gourmet appetizer.

Taking some issue, there, anonymous? Relax and enjoy life a bit. You'll be MUCH happier. :)

March 15, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMary

I can't blame the baker for wanting it removed! They looked more like sunburnt and grilled man kabobs then craw fish. ;)

March 16, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

*semi-sarcasm font*

I freaking LOVE Epcot!!

March 16, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterb*sherrie

The baker's name isn't mentioned or anything, so it's ridiculous that they can just get their wreck taken off the site.

March 17, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Pretty sure that's Spaceship Earth, Jen. Sorry.
(Yes, I get it.)

March 18, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterEric

So, there isn't a link that would could use to see the picture? Not even at the baker's website?
Booo for those of us that missed it. :(

March 18, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMelissa

Must be a terrible day for them.

March 23, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAndre Nievo

When will wreckerators learn... asking for removal creates more interest. Luckily for us, someone copied the photo :D (and linked it back to Cake Wrecks)

Just when I thought I'd missed my chance to see COCKroaches and would have to just settle for one big BALL (gee, I really resent it when real life gets in the way of my Cake Wreck entertainment), special thanks to Tan for posting a link to the original image so I could see what all the giggles had been about!

WV: "brachos" - yummy cheesy snacks served from a woman's undergarment (knock it 'till you've tried it, folks!)

I've seen the pic before, but it's a little disappointing that they took it down.

I know the baker wanted it down, but if you're making cakes like that one... well, it should only be expected that people will poke a little fun at it.

This cake is LOL inducing. I love it for that.

Who else thinks it looks a bit like a cluster of bloody penises?

I mean, the penis idea is down. :P Anyone else see the resemblance as far as bloody goes?

BTW: I'm just saying to all the people telling others to read the comments...

Not all of us feel like reading 220 comments. D: I mean, I scan them, but no need to get annoyed because someone said something before.
Yeesh. o__o

Cheers to Jen for having the class to remove an image at the request of the baker. Jeers to the baker for asking her too.
