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.

I loved the video, but something is bugging me and I have to share. Your site is usually over-the-top awesome with correct grammar. I mean, it has to be, right? Because you have to catch all the stuff that is so horribly wrong! the video, there were several different spots where the word has an apostrophe s when there absolutely shouldn't be an apostrophe. I think they were at 1:34, 1:37 and 2:34, or close to those spots. Other than that, I loved it and love your site!!!!

It's been said before but you people are seriously talented... and possibly alos from HELL. Keep it up!

August 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterLeslie

...and Gigli.

GOT ME SO GOOD, I almost cried from laughing.

I was reading that with a scary movie voice-over in my head, and when I got to Gigli I just LOST IT.

It could just be that I'm overly hormonal thanks to the alien entity I'm currently hosting, but I think it was probably just because it was that funny.

Good one, guys. Love it!

The trailer was perfection - the best thing you've ever done! Bravo!!

August 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJoy

Ok, I absolutely loved the trailer and the horrific cakes "from hell"....I almost spewed diet mt. dew with this one

You managed to sneak in Christmas Vacation. Well done!

August 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

The teddy bear on top of that cupcake should be named "Poo-bear."

August 13, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterslightlyawkward

I loved the trailer, it made me laugh, does that make me a sicko?

August 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterB-Jo

OMG that is the best vid ever!!!!!

Branching out? Nice! There's a YouTube channel already? :D

Is it just me, or does that dog resemble Triumph the Insult Comic Dog?

baby. flower. head. nightmares.

I don't know what you guys have been eating lately, but I think you need a little less sugar and a little more protein.
Either that, or you might have a brain tumor. Really. I'm concerned. :-P

August 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterPilgrim


Good catch but the apostrophes are actually just part of the creepy font. It definitely looks a little funky though.

Oh, and you shall now be known as Eagle-eye Molly.


August 13, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterjohn (the hubby of Jen)

Oh yeah, you have really outdone yourselves this time..ove, love, love the trailer..but for really blodd-curdling stomach churning fear, you omitted an obvious choice..Gordon Ramsay..although, I never HAVE seen him bake anything..wouldn't that be a chilling sight? Hmmm?

August 13, 2010 | Unregistered Commentermizdarlin

Wow!! Number One is truly Amazing! two thumbs up! :)

August 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterTiffany

Hm. I think the stray tadpole apostrophes are subconcious inclusions of diabolical masterminds who first distract with full frontal spectacles of horror, then retire with gleeful snickering, knowing that they've successfully planted the seeds of future horrors. Thus ...

Thank the universe for Cake Wrecks!! Always gets my day off to a fabulous start!

August 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSettyk

That made me LOL so much. The sad part is that trailor was about as good as other horror movie trailors

August 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

love the Labyrinth clips!

August 13, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterandygirl

oh my goodness! this is hilarious, and very much how I see all horror films! lol. you're a genius!

August 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMissRon

Best line:
where the streets are paved with . . . evil
and the nights are filled with . . . evil

Also: yay Labyrinth!

August 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Awesome as usual... Just surprised there wasn't some Mrs. Lovetts footage in the vid, seemed appropriate. heh

August 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterTesha

I am laughing so hard I am crying. You people are broken in all the right ways. I have GOT to hang out with you someday.

August 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMelyssa

#1 I was thinking 'Cathy' (the cartoon) on some sort of seriously potent controlled substance.

#2 Why is the 'bear' (?) wearing an attack-dog trainer suit with a respirator? No shortage of sprinkles, though.

#3 Happy Birthday, Karla, (?) from the Hound of the Baskervilles! I don't see how, but maybe it looked more normal before it began to melt. The glowing red eyes are a nice touch.

#4 Presenting Audrey III from the Baby Shop of Horrors. (I've been in some of those -- usually, it's just the prices that are scary.)

#5 I like frosting and I like cookies, but I am decidedly less than fond of the combination. "Too much of a good thing... always leaves one wanting less, I always find." That much frosting on a cookie is evil all by itself.

August 14, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterCraig

I about jumped out of my chair when I saw the decapitated dog head. I love horror movies and don't scare easily, but good god was that terrifying.

I also just found out a childhood friend had a baby girl and named her Audrey Rose. If she gets older and starts screaming about fire and calling herself Ivy, mom and dad are in a lot of trouble.

August 14, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterBree

I love the videos. You guys rock. :)

August 14, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterKimberly Chapman

Yep, they were gross all right. But then I showed my daughter and now she wants to make one! Aaaaargh!

August 14, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMajeeda

Oh man did I have never laughed so hard watching your video clip. I nearly fell off my chair onto my poor hubby who is innocently playing Metal Gear Solid behind my chair. He has seen it isn't safe to be near me when I go on this site lol. Though he did stop to watch as well when he saw how hard I was laughing.. that teddy bear has made me rethink ever buying another one for a cake ever again.. scary.

August 14, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterArlene

That dog is the scariest thing you've ever posted, and I include here all the dismembered pregnant women. I should have taken the hint when the pictures didn't load until the third time I refreshed the page. I'm gonna regret checking Cake Wrecks before bedtime.

August 14, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAviatrix

Friday the 13th and it was actually a good day for me.
Aside form that, I have seen some horrific things in film, read some horrifything things in books and had some good scares on a few rtides. But this takes the cake, no punn intended. I actually think that's a good idea. A Ghost Train ride that has all these horrific cakes in there.

August 14, 2010 | Unregistered Commentershikishinobi

That was the best trailer I've ever seen! Keep up the creepy cake work!! Thanks for all your hard work on Cake Wrecks!

August 14, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSew Happy

I agree with Suzanne and Craig. My first thoughts were 'Cathy' from the comics and 'Triumph' the Insult Comic Dog. Just glad I read this post yesterday morning and didn't save it for bedtime.

PS - 9 out of 10 times there is no wv. Just a blank box with a little red X in the corner. Been like that about a month.

August 14, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterTricia L

Ok, the dog looks so sad! And that baby flower is something from a nightmare!

This was posted the same day on Cake Central. How funny???

August 14, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

"AAAAUUUUGGGGHHHHHH!!! WTH? Swirly bloody poo bear? *beep* *beep* *beeeep*" is typically how I'd react to a horror movie like that. Awesome post, you guys!

P.S. What up with that first one with toes for fingers?

August 14, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterThe Dream Police Person!

Keep the videos coming! It's so fun to read a great post only to scroll and find a video at the bottom.
