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? ;)

Sullen Sully

Hi all! Number 1 here with an ode to my favorite PIXAR movie: Monsters Inc.! Every single time I see it, I laugh harder than I did before. I'm not the only one, either. Loyal Wreckporter Michelle and her grandson Zacharia love this animated masterpiece so much they even ordered a cake that looked like James P. Sullivan, or "Sully," for Zacharia's 2nd birthday.

In case you've never seen the film, here's what Sully looks like:

Now, ready to see what Michelle got back from the bakery?

(wait for it...)

(keep waiting...)

(don't forget how cute and fluffy Sully is...)






"Oh, you're supposed to bake the cake before you frost it? That explains a lot."


Are you on the phone with Ghostbusters? Need a closer view for a more accurate description?
"He slimed me."


Good gravy, if this monstrosity popped out of my closet when I was a kid, I'd still be sleeping with a nightlight...and a rifle.

Of course, what matters is what the birthday Boo thought of his special cake:



'Nuff said.

Thanks, Michelle R. for sending in this sugary beast. Better luck next year, Zach!

You’re supposed to bake the cake before you ice it is a line from another Disney movie. Did you do that on purpose?

I think they tried to ice it before it had a chance to completely cool all the way through, and they could have used a teddy bear pan as a base and removed the ears and built from I want to make one just so I know there's a right way....
