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? ;)

The Rainbow Connection

Whoa, that's a full rainbow!

All the way...

Double rainbow! Oh my gosh...

It's a double rainbow all the way...

So intense!

Whoah, whoah oh my gosh oh my gosh...


It's starting to look like a TRIPLE rainbow!

Ohhh YEEEAH!!!

It's full on: double rainbow across the sky!


It's so bright and vivid.

What does this mean?


[possible climax]

[more sobbing]

It's so beautiful!!

[still more sobbing]

[sniffling] Oh my gosh...

It's a double complete rainbow - ah ah ah ahhhh!

What does it mean?

Erin G., Sarv, Lindsay W., Emily M., Amanda L., Katherine M., Kayla D., & Ruth S., these Wrecks are for the lovers, the dreamers, and this guy.

(I'm also rather partial to the autotune version.)

*Dies laughing*

Thank you, I needed that this morning!

("possible climax" *gigglesnort*)

July 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterPais

I am rolling! The pictures are the perfect match for that!

July 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterNikki

That. Was. Brilliant.

A logical conclusion to a hilarious internet meme. :)

July 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterElizabethB

I think someone was off his meds!

July 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

What does it mean? Maybe nuclear holocaust? Armagedan? Something cataclysmic.

July 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

To begin with, have these people never heard of ROY G BIV???? Rainbows just don't come in some of those colors, and I'm feeling ill looking at them.

I know this video has been around for a while, but I JUST saw it last night for the first time--so it's like you read my mind.

July 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJessica

I love that meme.

July 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJW

i'm dying from laughing so hard

July 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Too funny! Sadly it reminded me of this failblog video.

July 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJennifer

Was 'introduced' via youtube to the double rainbow guy. wow. Thought it couldn't get any better ... and you DID IT. So perfect!

July 27, 2010 | Unregistered Commentermistie

I have to tell you that as an avid Cake Wrecks reader this post absolutely MADE my day. I saw the double rainbow video for the first time a few weeks ago and I've watched it many times since and everytime I still cry I laugh so hard. Thank you for posting this, I'm glad I'm not the only one who saw the video and found it hilarious :)

July 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterGabi

I've seen a few parodies of the infamous Double Rainbow since it started circulating...

...but this one really takes the CAKE.

*ducks rotten fruit*

Seriously, though, brilliant post, utterly inspired.

July 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

first of all these cakes are all insults to rainbows.

Secondly, the YouTube videos are HYSTERICAL. the first one sounds like the guy has ingested some of Alice B Tolklas' famous brownies or maybe some funny mushrooms...

But I gotta say - I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Autotune version even more!

Thanks again for my morning giggle

July 27, 2010 | Unregistered Commentermn_me

Hahaha...I knew where this was going with the very first picture! LOL Some of those rainbow cakes make me cry, too. :D

July 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterBethany

Elementary school teachers are screaming ROY G BIV . . . the color arrangements on those rainbows are, well, beyond incorrect and into the realm of awful :)

July 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

You got me with the "[possible climax]" Bahahahaha.

July 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJames


July 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMatt

Hahahaha! He was definitely high! I was wondering what you were going on about!! Until I watched the video..

Actually, the outer rainbow is a reflection. Look carefully and you'll notice that the colours are in reverse order. The next time you see a rainbow, look closely, there is always a lighter reflection.

July 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterPriscilla

hahah!At first I didn't remember the video, I just thought you'd lost you mind....

July 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous


Thank you...

BTW, I did see a double rainbow the other day. My husband did not believe me.

July 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

I'm too distracted by your hilarious riffing on the Double Rainbow video to notice how bad those cakes are. And I think the autotune song's going to be stuck in my head now.

Oh my, I'm laughing so hard right now at work and my coworkers think I'm crazy! I just saw the video a few days ago, so this was perfect timing. :)

July 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterBecky

I almost wet my pants. Thanks guys :D

July 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnna


duuuude! he needs to get a grip!

THANK YOU FOR THIS POST! I haven't laughed this hard in a while! :D

July 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterStephanie G.

I just saw that video for the FIRST TIME last night, and here you are on cakewrecks making it even funnier!!!

"Possible climax," so true--that's exactly what I thought!

July 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterLindsey

I'll have what he's having...

July 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

You guys always make my day, thank you!

July 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSteph

That was perfect!
My coworkers are looking at me like I'm crazy because I'm cracking up. Now I want a birthday cake with a double rainbow...

July 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterEvelyn

Awww, it just sounded like he was having a spiritual experience. Maybe he was searching for meaning in his life and went out to Yosemite to find it, and the rainbows seemed like a sign to him. Still, this was hilarious.

July 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Whoaaaaa Duddddeeeeeee....You gotta quit hitting the ludes so may have a thing for double rainbows all the way, but your cake decorating is only understood "under the influence"

July 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

"OMG! OMG!!" The cakes were funny/ugly, but the video and song were "high"-larious. Now my face hurts from laughing so much! Thanks.

July 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterHuskymom

You need to include the DR connection:

Thanks for the giggles!

July 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Jen, you're a freakin' genius!! And I thank you for that. Best moment of my day.

July 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

I have never laughed so hard at a post (I have laughed for sure, but never so much, and never enough to comment). And I totally would have never got it unless I had seen that video a few days ago on Jimmy Kimmel. I would have just thought the cakes were bad rainbows, but would have wondered what was with the captions.

July 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterNicole

did these wreckorators NEVER learn ROY G. BIV in school? What the hell is with the colors in these wrecks? My eyes were starting to bleed after a while! AGH!

July 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMe!

Those mushrooms you picked and ate? They're... special. ;)

July 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMiranda

This post did not make sense to me until I watched the youtube videos. Too funny! I'm still laughing! :)

July 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterThe Morris Family

Is nothing sacred anymore?! Great, I can't even marvel at a rainbow without getting mocked these days!

(Thanks for the youtube link, otherwise I wouldn't have known what you were talking about!)

July 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

I loved this.

July 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterThe Boob Nazi

Look.. I never comment... but this video is insanely hilarious :P... <3 your blog.. you guys rock!!

July 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

ROTFL. I hadn't seen that video. Am amazed it didn't end with someone beaning him with a rock. Then turning on the wreckerators.

July 27, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterelissa

double rainbow all the way across the sky, yeaah yeahhh yeah
*so intense*

i heard an interview with him (apart from the creepy jimmy kimmel interview where he said that he thinks women are more beautiful and he has 11 european women WOOFing at his farm right now) where he said he's sobbing in the video because the "rainbow rays" knocked him down. ouchie!

July 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJennifer

"What is oozing out of our ground?"
Tainted icing it seems.

July 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterTrixie61

OMG, Brilliant! :) Loved it!

"What does this mean???!?" *snicker*

July 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterElly

Ok, I didn't get this until I saw the video. Brilliant, Jen and John. As always. And those 'cakes' are gawd-awful!!

July 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMaureen

I think the third one is the magic Bacon Rainbow!
