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? ;)

Wreck's This? The Musical

If you enjoyed Wednesday's "What's This?" post, then have I got a treat for you!

Prepare to have your mind blown.

Then push 'play.'

This work of genius is by Joel Bradshaw, a talented Wreckie with mad video editing skilz and even madder taste in blogs. Thanks for making my week, Joel! When our bid for Wrecky World Dominion is complete, you'll be first on the list for promotion to head henchperson. ;)

That was AWESOME!

Kudos to Joel for taking a very very VERY funny audio clip and integrating a best-of-cakewrecks slide show and a transcript of most of the phone call. I agree with the previous commenter: this is definitely a YouTube candidate. And this definitely needs to go under the Fan Faves/Classics tab :)

PS To those worrying about the poor fuzzy, I'm now convinced that after a "that's crazy/that's great/tell her I said hi" conversation, "her dog died" is just dry and dark humour, particularly since she undoubtedly knew this was being recorded and probably didn't want all of us to know someone else's personal details!

I think I will be singing this and laughing for days! As I type I can hear my 5 year old singing it from her bed as she is going to sleep! You are affecting generations!

i would have thought that was funny had you not ruined it by making so light of someone's dog dying. animals are a part of someone's family. i realize there most likely never was a dog, and it's your sense of humor, but it's still not something many people would joke about. i'm only one of 99 people, the other 98 of whom seemed to love it, but i used to recommend people to this site all the time, emphasis on used to.

Wow! I didn't think it could get any better! A coworker and I were laughing to the point of tears when we saw the original what's this post. This is hilarious! Thanks for sharing! :)

To John (The Hubby of Jen),

As a fan of this site, a pet owner, and it being my birthday I have to say.... Just because someone doesn't get the funny, you shouldn't have to apologize.

My cousin's dog was found two days ago having been hit by a car. She saw this video and didn't get offended.

That's all. Have a good day!

This is AMAZING! I'm laughing so hard, and it's so well done! I can't wait to make my mom pee her pants laughing from watching this...always a fun past-time of mine. :D

WV: shickie - Gosh, I hope my mom doesn't get a shickie after seeing this video...I just wanted to make her pee her pants a little, that's all!

That was great! I view your blog after I get the baby to sleep and I was laughing so much I woke her up! Great Job!

Best. Earworm. Ever.

August 8, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterWolvie Girl

That is comedy on so many levels, I can't tell you. I'm simply going to add that to my favorites on YT. Well done guys!

August 8, 2010 | Unregistered Commentershikishinobi

Wow, thanks everyone for the comments! It's great to see the video brought additional joy and laughter to so many people :) I'm glad I'm not the only one that loves Nightmare and wanted to see what would actually happen if the soundtrack was actually there.

And for those of you crazy enough to want download this or the original (or even a few ringtone-ish clips!), I've put such things up on my" rel="nofollow">original blog post, so you can head over there to do so.

And Jen and John (and friend!), thanks for the laughs! After just putting this thing together, I'm impressed by your ability to keep your blog coming, day after day. It's no small feat.

(wv: guiesi. I guiesi I'm supposed to append that if it's interesting?)

August 8, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJoel Bradshaw

That was ten different kinds of awesome. I cannot stop laughing!

August 8, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJen

You have to promote this God-man. He took what was already hilarious and just cranked it up to 11.

I think the thing that really made me howl was the music underneath it all! So awesome.

August 8, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Thanks guys...I sooo needed to laugh really hard first thing.LOL

August 8, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMichelle B

This video practically screams ADHD! Love it, love it, love it!

August 8, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSerenity

freakin' awesome.

August 8, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterecuakim

@shielmaiden96: No, no you are not. And I actually laughed harder at your comment than I did about this post because I thought THE SAME THING.

August 8, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterecuakim

awesome, just awesome!

August 8, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterT

I had no idea it could get better than the original, but this was FANTASTIC!

August 8, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterChristy

I...could not.... stop.... laughing!!!! So hilarious, I about fell out of my chair, and now the husband unit is staring at me as if wondering if he should prepare to commit me.

August 8, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterRebecca

I didn't like the part with the telephone. It didn't fit in with the rest of the song. I think it would have been better to have left it out.

August 8, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterNight Owl

This song is now hazardous to my health and well being. A friend's dog died today and I couldn't stop laughing...

August 8, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterCait

Oh. My. Word. That may actually have topped the original video - and Lord knows that one already had me in stitches!

August 8, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterStephanie

So, I thought the video on Wednesday was great, but the new Joel version is fan-freakin'-tastic! Love, love, love it! :)

August 8, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMolly

Joel definitely deserves head henchperson status after editing this video! Well done, well done!


August 9, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Love it, love it, love it!

August 9, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterBecky

I'm laughing so hard I'm cryin'.

August 9, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMelyssa

I thought it was great the first time, but now I'm totally blown away! Love it!

August 9, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMom2JandK

I laughed until my head hurt. And then my eyes watered. Therefore, in the true spirit of wrecks, I read Standing Ovation as Standing Ovulation...LOL...

August 9, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterLeah

I didn't think the earlier version of the song could get any funnier, but this is awesome! Great editing!!

August 9, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJamie

Loved it!

August 9, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJulie

August 9, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterlasersmith

So I was checking out the post and chatting online with my sister and she goes "I'm reading an online article about autism and pollutants, what you are doing?" to which I go
"umm...watching a parody on Cake Wrecks."
