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? ;)

Evil Gets... Evil-er

In a world...

where nothing is safe...

and no one can be trusted...

"Like, ohmygawsh, Kelly! I know it's midnight and raining outside, but let's strip down to our bras and go running through the woods! What could possibly go wrong?"

[blood-curdling scream]

From the people who brought you:
Butterflies from Hell,
Night Hugs from Hell,
Underwater Zombie Ballerinas (Also from Hell,)
and Gigli,
comes the most horrifying psychological thrill-ride blood bath you will ever wish you could un-see.

"Thank you for the teddy bear, mommy! I love him SO MUCH, and I'm glad he's not creepy and won't kill us in our sleep or anything!"

[blood-curdling scream]

No one knows where they came from... or who they will visit next.

"Well, I'm all by myself and the power's out, but I think I'll take a shower anyway."

[pulling back shower curtain]

[blood-curdling scream]

When the streets are paved with evil... and the nights are filled with... evil...

"Gosh, I'm so glad you came over to make out with me while I'm babysitting tonight. Maybe I should just go check on the baby... in the attic... in my high heels... in the dark... in my bra... alone... while you go get pizza.

[pulling back blanket]

[blood-curdling scream]

Nothing that lives in the imagination is more frightening than the terror that lives... in the bakery:

{Crazy maniacal Leprechaun laugh}

[blood-curdling scream]

This Friday the 13th, terror gets its just desserts.

Hell's Bakery... from Hell. In 3D.

If you can't stand the heat... you're probably about to get murdered.

OH.MY.GOSH. Seriously, what is WRONG with these bakers? That first one looks like a character from Sesame Street has become a stalker. The next is obviously "pooh" bear and NOT the one we all know and love. The decapitated and melty dog head, well, all I can say to that is WOOF. The baby face flower looks like a tribute to Anne Geddes that went horribly wrong and that last one - well I just love how they put hearts on the bottom, like that someone can distract you from that psychotically evil sharp-toothed grimace! Evil bakers!

Thank you so much for the nightmares. That 'dog' especially shall haunt me all the days of my lives. (yes, lives, being a cat means I have more than one, and you've scarred me for all of them)

HOW do I get that image out of my mind?????


WV - stnesa ... I'm praying to St Nesa to heal my eyes and clear my mind right now.

Love Love LOVE the video! "And Gigli!!" made me cackle. I'm such a nerd that I almost shouted Labryinth! each time it was used.

Happy Friday the 13th y'all!

This is THE BEST TRAILER EVER!! I was sitting in my cubicle and laughing out loud uncontrollably and probably finally confirmed my co-workers suspicions that I have lost it...*lol*

August 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterFiru

I definitely had the movie trailer guy's voice in my head when I read this.
The video was hilariously awesome. :D

August 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterStephanie

What a way to celebrate Friday the 13th. That video was TOTALLY A-W-E-S-O-M-E!!!

I am so glad I wasn't drinking anything while watching it. What a way to start the day.

Number 1 rocks

August 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterDebbaSue

only the shadow knows what evil lurks in the hearts (and bakeries) of men (and women)....

Great stuff once again ... Love the video concept. Very funny stuff!

August 13, 2010 | Unregistered Commentermn_me

OMG- That video was freaking hilarious! A+

August 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

This is my new favorite horror movie!

Those 80s perms are almost as scary as the cakes.

August 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterGary

OMG! My co-workers were wondering why my mouth was hanging open in sheer horror. I shudder to think about the poor receipient of the first cake. That person is gonna need therapy-come to think of it, I might now too. ugghh.

Dear Jen and John,

What are your thoughts on a polyamourous relationship with an unknown fan from Australia?

*presents flowers*

*presents chocolates*

*presents ring*

On the first cake, not only is that muppet climbing out of the grave horrifying in just about every other respect, but she (he? it?) doesn't seem to have opposable thumbs.

August 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterGary

LOVE it... but somehow was expecting a Sweeney Todd reference at some point...

August 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterWild Cakes

Great post!!! The teddy bear is just.... Indescribable.

August 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterThe Boob Nazi

Awesome! Thanks for the laugh, I needed it.

August 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

That video is amazing. It reminds me of when I was a teenager and would have horror movie fest slumber parties every Friday the 13th. That dog cake freaks me out. I'm in my thirties and I still can't read or watch Cujo.

August 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJenB

Dear John, Jen, and Cake Wrecks crew:

I love you.
That is all.

August 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSassy0

Love the video!! And my daughter is watching The Labyrinth as I type...maybe I should go check on her...still fully clothed, of course!

August 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterDori

Cannot... unsee... maniacal grinning leprechaun heart cake.

(Except when I'm on the floor dying of laughter. Total bullseye with today's post!)

Hilarious :) The dog cake made me think of what my Kai dog would look like if I got dodgy contacts and his face melted... I have to wonder what combination of drugs those bakers were on...

August 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMolly Malone

OMG that video was genius, #1! Great video! Bravo!!

"...and Gigli." LOL

August 13, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterjo

Those cakes were creepy! Especially the flower-faced cake. What were they thinking?

August 13, 2010 | Unregistered Commenter愛 - ちゃん

Your trailer was amazing! It was interesting to go try and name as many movies clips as possible, but when it came to the clip from the Korean Antique Bakery movie I seriously loled!

*whistles 'One of these things is not like the others...' softly*

August 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

This was maybe my favorite post ever.

August 13, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterkatie-keysburg

Ya know, all those cakes got progressively worse as you scrolled down? Was that intentional? Geez, now I gotta go change...

August 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterStella

OH MAN THAT WAS AMAZING! Before the post was even done I was like "they need a video for THIS one" hahahaha

I love how you incorporate the Labyrinth movie of my faves.

I think the teddy bear is the scariest ;)

August 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterStephanie G.

That was too funny!! I love cakewrecks!!

August 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Okay, possibly the funniest movie trailer EVER!!!

I love you guys. LOVE LOVE LOVE.

These videos are KILLING me. It's like murder From Hell. At work which is kind of like hell... they're probably wondering why I'm hyperventilaughing with the screaming.

August 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterNicole

how could you eat that dog's head, it looks too real.
loved the video even though im not familiar with most of the movies

"in my bra" wanted to add that when a girl hears a noise outside she opens the door, leaves it wide open and wanders around outside ( in revealing outfit), later back inside she is *surprised* when someone got in and attacks her (still wearing revealing outfit).

Great, now I"m going to be humming Weird Al's "Nature Trail To Hell In 3-D" for the rest of the day.

Nice trailer. You people rock. :)

OMG, I love you SO MUCH for this post!

August 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterErin - Thrift Madness

So awesome Jen, just awesome. I really wish I could get Underwater Zombie Ballerinas (also from Hell) on my Netflix.

But not Gigli.

That, my friend, was the cherry on top for me.

My birthday is next week, hubby insists he is getting a cake as a surprise... I hope it's wrecktastic just so I can submit it!

August 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJenericFN

Love it! It's MY birthday today and I'm always thrilled when it falls on a Friday since I was born on Friday the 13th. Thanks for the laughs! :)

You've really outdone yourself today–that film was awesomesauce! Love the Labyrinth clips. :)

I was truly creeped out by the first cake (AMAAGAHHH) but it quickly dissipated thanks to your hilarious video.

"underwater zombie ballerinas....(also from hell)" snnnnkkkBWAHAHAHA

You guys are too much. Thank you for being too much. =)

Hahaha!!!!! I would totally pay to go see that! How long did it take you to piece that together? I could only identify three of the movie bits you used but it was great!!! Posting the link on my FB now!

P.S. You know what we haven't seen in a while? Crappy nature cakes. I'm just saying.

August 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnna
