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? ;)

"C" is for "copyright violation!"

Ted, Shelly, Dana C., Amanda L., Colleen B., Stephanie, Jennifer D., & Dana C., I think the creepy tongue adds character. *Badumpbum* And in all fairness, that last one could be a really, really bad Princess Leia cake.

I have read almost all of the posts here, but this one... this one made me laugh until I sobbed. Literally. I've got tears running down my face here. Best. One. Ever.

Poor Mickey. It's a shame that nobody baking these cakes knows what Mickey Mouse actually looks like!

My 12yo and I were laughing at the last picture, and my 5yo and her friend came over to see. They both clamped their hands to their mouth, horrified.

Number three has a slice of lime in its ear.
By the way, this is my favorite post on Cake Wrecks except maybe Santa Auditions - for those who have sadly not seen it, go search it right now. Or just click You'll be glad you did.
