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? ;)

Spiderman's dirty little secret revealed:

Now that's a Dynamic Duo.

Here's one of the lesser-known heroes, Essenem Man:

He may not be much of a fighter, but he is always on the ball.



The good news: little Ryder had no idea why his mom was in such a hurry to cut the cake.

The bad news: everyone else at the party did.

Liz D., Kristen C., Mark F., & Rebecca J., I would tell you who my favorite superhero is, but I'm afraid it's a three-way tie.

Note: If you're wondering, the second cake is supposed to be Batman. Obviously.

Ha. The "Batman" cake is much more obvious to anybody who has spent time running around in a "gimp suit" during a certain Grand Theft Auto game.
The Hulk seems to be missing a hand, so I thought he was doing something other than um, giving himself a hand... oh wait, I guess that still counts.
My captcha says "Syclizz". Sounds like a suss superhero name that might find themselves in the same battle as Orgasmo. I don't know why.

For some reason Superman's mascara made me think he was crying the first time I looked at that last cake.

Added a whole new dimension of drama to the thing...

Spiderman wants everyone to think he's a DC character.

That Hulk cake must have been created by a master baker. With that out of the way...

Having a combined celebration is a wreck in itself (in a 'less cake' sense, ok?).

An anniversary (let alone birthday) cake depicting the Hulk 'getting a grip' is multi-dimensionally wrong. It's like an error fractal (pattern that repeats on many scales).

Poor Hulk -- obviously he's not master of his domain.

Ummm... wow. It's too bad. That last cake could have been super. I think the wreckerator was just put into a bad position.

The super trio cake (last one) is very finely detailed and drawn, for having come probably from a supermarket. It would not have been a Cake Wreck at all ... if only there had been better ... positioning of the heroes?
