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.

Something seems to be wrong in the embed code of the movie. Like its right side was truncated. I think the "trailer" is supposed to be wide-screen but the embed code is for regular.

August 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterHerouth

Ha ha ha! That was FANTASTIC!

For us readers of Cake Weaks Friday the Thirteen is not a bad luck day, it's a wonderful funny day. You've done it again. Thank-you

Arrgghhh! The babyface flower cupcake is horrifying! I wish I could unsee it!! Also, the video won't work for me which is also making me scared. Or disappointed. Or both. I'm sending you my therapist bills

Serendipity I tell you.

I kinda like that last one. Sadly, it's a cookie, but it's CHEERY!

August 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterBADKarma!

Creepy kids, and poo pets,
They're all Cake Wrecks.
Babies get cut down to size,
and cupcakes have a gross surprise,

Now I can't get it out of my head,
No, I can't get it out of my head,
Now my cake world is gone for dead,
Now I can't get it out of my head,
Thanks to Jen.

Can you imagine even contemplating eating that little baby face cupcake? What kind of a psycho would you have to be to dream of sinking your teeth into that?!?!

August 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAlyssa

That was hilarious. Kudos to you. I really enjoyed this post.

Today's post is so evil, you would say it's EE-vel, like it's the fru-its of the De-vel.

And the comment about "in my bra," so true. LOL.

August 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

You guys continue to outdo yourselves! Very funny as it was, but the video really makes it the best.

WV: expess--I cannot expess my gratitude for the laughs, or my horror at those cakes.

August 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

OMG! The cakewrecks themselves are creepy enough - then you had to add the video!

LOL - loved it.

August 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJilly-bear

The first one looks like Kate Monster turned into a junkie and is jonesing. YIKES.

August 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAmie

Wow. I can't thank you enough for the brilliance of this trailer; my string of Friday-the-13th bad luck started a day early, and I so needed a good laugh. You rule.

August 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Love it! :D

The baby face cupcake is TERRIFYING! Just awful!

August 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterEG

"...and Gigli"

Remind me not to drink water while I'm reading this - I almost had a serious incident.

August 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

thank you thank you thank you

Having read out the text in suitable voice for me and my dearest to enjoy, to be able to see it brought to life on the small (evil) screen was just wonderful :o)

August 13, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterdolphinwitchuk

Cannot get over how you seriously used Labyrinth clips in that vid. Blood-curdling horror flick that it is. (Well, there are the tights). I am forever in awe of your thematic cake-grouping skills.

It was as if Wes Craven did a guest post.

August 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterTbelle

I just love you guys so, so much.

(P.S. Nice job sneaking some Labyrinth in there. I approve!)

"Terror Get's It's Just' Dessert's"

Well played, J&J. Well played.

Love the liberal use of punctuation and the appropriate misspelling of "deserts" (given the context). Much squeeing from this word nerd.

August 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterWordNerd

Hilarious! I watched it in the dark. In my bra.

August 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMichelle S.

Okay, that had me howling with laughter - especially all the "from hell" parts. Best movie preview ever. Bravo!

August 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Fabulous movie!! You guys are so creative!

August 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterEllen

Baby face flowers? Ahhhh! I really loved the video trailer my wife and I are still laughing our butts off... From HELL....

August 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterShawn
