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? ;)

Easter Indiscretions

NOTE: Mildly suggestive material ahead. Parents, please pre-read.

Today's cakes were sent in by a mister Seymour B.

(Ok, no they weren't, but that joke makes me snort.)

If your first thought upon seeing this cake was, "Look! A hidden Mickey!" then I want - no, need - to be your friend.

You know a Wreck is bad when calling it a "butt" is erring on the side of generosity:

Where's the rest of him?

(Just look at that foot angle. C'mon.)

No butts here, (except this one ->) but I think someone took "Playboy Bunny" a little too literally:

And right out in public, too. Tsk, tsk.

And finally, there's this thing:

Right now you're probably wondering if this is a bird or a bunny. In a few more seconds, though, you're going to notice how, er, ballsy the Wreckerator was with the design. Next you'll note the unfortunate placement of all that hair. Then the use of the color blue. And finally, you'll have an uncontrollable urge to e-mail this link to all of your friends and family - except Uncle Fred. (Fred's such a killjoy.)

Then, when I snap my fingers, you'll want to go to the nearest tattoo parlor and get "Cake Wrecks Rocks!" inscribed somewhere really obvious on your body. Ready? Annnnd...[snapping fingers]

Hey Becca, Kelly F., Anna C., & Alison R., ever consider permanent body art? Yes? Excellent.

Haha, I ABSOLUTELY said "Look, a hidden Mickey!" Verbatim, actually.

I'm so glad we're friends. My thought process was "Mickeeeeyyy!!! Wait, Mickey? Easter? Dirty? Ohh...."

April 6, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterKelley Marie

guess i am your new friend, cuz i totally thought that was a mickey cake (then, i was always the butt of every "dirty" joke in school as well)

Somehow I don't think those animal flash cards will help these "decorators". Perhaps they should be given a box of crayons and a piece of paper before they are hired.

April 6, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterTricia

All I see is Mickey in the first idea what it's supposed to be.

April 6, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterluvsmusicndance

Apparently, we *must* be friends!! Hidden Mickey, FTW!!

April 6, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterKat

I totally thought "Oh look a Hidden Mickey!" about that first one. I don't know whether to be proud or embarrassed lol.

"If your first thought upon seeing this cake was, "Look! A hidden Mickey!" then I want - no, need - to be your friend."

Apparently, you need to be my friend. :) Hahaha. For this joke, I bestow upon you 1,000 Internets. NOTE: internets have an inherent value of zero dollars and zero cents.

Apparently we need to be friends, fer srs. I actually had to look around to see that it wasn't a Mickey.

April 6, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterTaylor

You need to be my friend. 'Cause "Hidden Mickey!" was totally my first thought.

April 6, 2010 | Unregistered Commentergeeky Heather

Oh, I am *so* glad that I'm not the only one who immediately thought "Look! A Hidden Mickey!"

WDW is our other home. Now, if only we could LIVE somewhere near there, that would be wonderful. And it would save a bundle on our checkbook.

April 6, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterjedijson

wait. now seriously. I saw the hidden mickey, the backwards feets, butts etc. but that last one is NOT a peacock?? I know I'm supposed to see a bunny, but just...can't...squint...enough....


April 7, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Wait, the 4th one's supposed to be a bunny?!? I seriously was sitting here trying to figure out what weird world had turkeys for an Easter figure until I read the comments. That is seriously bad.

Oh, and I saw Mickey 1st too.

April 7, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterUpstate NY Linda

My hubby and I both went "hey, hidden Mickey!" Then I read your post and laughed myself silly!

April 7, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterKate

okay, photo #2 has mutant smiley faces on the feet


but the brown chicken of despair under the dome of doo-doo is, not "priceless" and not "creative"

hmmm, maybe it's a drug humor thing?

April 7, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterBarbara Anne

April 7, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterTeresa Peschke

hehehe...the bunny has happy feet :)

April 7, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterChristine

LOL - I totally saw a hidden mickey before I read your comment. Disneyphiles of the world unite!

April 7, 2010 | Unregistered Commentersingintherain

Uhh, no comment on the third cake. That's just too messed up.

Word verification- gynestr. That bunny's gynestr must see some horrors...

April 7, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterNantucket Cat

I saw Mickey, too. I called my husband over, and before he even read the post, he asked why someone made a white poo-swirl Mickey.

He wasn't being snarky, either. He really thought it was supposed to be Mickey. >.<

April 7, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMidnight's Jinx

I totally thought 'Hidden Mickey' too! But I used to work at Disney World - You never really get rid of that skill :)

April 7, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterHeather T

All I saw was a Mickey too, and am not sure what *you're* seeing! SO, obviously, we must become friends.

Also, I now want cake.

April 8, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterKimela

Look a hidden Mickey! Seriously was my first thought.
I'd write more but I have to make my Sci Fi dinner theatre reservations.

April 9, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterKerri

Just wanted to say: I saw the hidden mickey. That was (literally) the first thing I thought of. :D

Just sayin'.

April 9, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterthe mouse

Yep, "hidden Mickey" here too. We're going again for our anniversary in 2 weeks and I've been reading Disney blogs like CRA-ZAY.

April 9, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSouthern Web Girl

Thank god I read the comments. I could not see anything but a white Mickey with ear fungus on that first cake.

April 9, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJennie


at first i thought it was some sort of bird with large breasts.....under a brown rainbow.

and then you finally see the bunny.

it's like a sad, scary magic eye.

April 10, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterRachel Leastlikely

Wait that first one isn't supposed to be Mickey???? I truly love that you seem to be as a big a Disney geek as I am, it is one of the reasons I read this blog. You had me at the Spaceship Earth cake. :) So when do I get my official friendship card?

April 12, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterGigi

I don't see anything but a bird under a brown rainbow. I see what are supposed to be blue teeth but it doesn't make sense with the rest of the image. Somebody please help. The suspense is killing me!

April 15, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

I totally thought hidden mickey

My first thought, before I even read your comments was, "mickey???". Then, "Naaah, too obvious, and she warned that there were risque comments". So I then thought "upside-down balls with a disturbingly pointer?"

No clue why anyone would think that half a bunny would appeal to children. I'm sure I would've been traumatized if someone had ever brought out an Easter cake like that!!

The last cake... (I'm at work and trying to be quiet). Oh my. First I saw an angry bird. Then I saw a variant of the first one, but with an awfully long, bent "pointer" in a non-anatomically-correct position. Hmmm... I think something must be in my coffee for me to be interpreting these cakes quite this way...

WV: ablocygy: some of these cakes on this blog are so wrecktaculous they leave me totally ablocygy!

I had to buy a new keyboard because i laughed so hard i spilled my soda on it


October 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterPoison Ivy

On the second cake, the feet look like they're SMILING. *Shudder*

January 20, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

That was my first thought too!
Can we be friends now? 6_~
