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? ;)

Bouncing Here And There And EV'rywhere!

"Dashing and daring, courageous and caring,

faithful and friendly with stories to share!


"All through the forest they sing out in chorus,

marching along as their song fills the air!

"Guuummy Beeeears!"

Um, thanks, Jordan B.

That is one of the least appetizing cakes I've ever seen.

September 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterThe Boob Nazi

Well... that's just unfortunate.

Not only the cake, I mean, but that that song will be in my head for the rest of the week now. Thanks Jen...

September 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterKatja Yount

OK, now I'm song-poisoned for the day. I'll never get that out of my head...

September 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterTuri

Blech....it reminds me of that sugary candy of long ago - "sugar babies".

Chocolate Gooo.
He will never, never come for you.
He is chocolate, he isn't poo.
He is Chocolate Goo...

I love the Gummy Bears. :D

That poor poor gummy bear got turned to stone! Is there a Medusa cake nearby???

(I suppressed the urge to ask if the gummy was poo flavored...)

September 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterDonna

It's a Poo Bear! Or something my dog left on the carpet.

September 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterVictoria

*whimpers* Why do that to a poor Gummy Bear? (And yes, gee, thanks SO MUCH, Jen, for getting that song stuck in my head!!!)

Bake sale and this was contributed by child? Made with donut holes and covered in melted icing? Sorry, but I see a brown gopher or even a prairie dog since that is what I hunt regularly in my acreage.

When I was a sophomore in high school, my chemistry teacher insisted we sacrifice gummy bears to the lab gods to prevent any of US from being injured.

We should have used that cake. :-P

September 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterViolaNut

Are we sure Bill Murray isn't looking for his C-4 gopher? I visualize him biting the head off of that one.

September 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

I believe I am glad that's a song/show I've never seen nor heard.

September 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterLisa

I don't like gummy bears and I don't think I'd want to eat this one either! Plus there's the brown skid mark on the cake board in front of it. Ew.

September 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterShauna

It reminds me of spam. It's a Spam-cake!

Who knew poo could be trained to sit up and beg? XP

In the vernacular of the time-period, "Totally gross to the max, dude! Like, gnarly! Gag me with a spoon!"

Carmen, the Un-Stalker

WV: "phorg" - the noise I just made thinking about this cake.

September 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterThe Alphabet Gang

That is just gross! Thanks for sharing it with us all : )

September 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterKGC Blend

Yikes!

September 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterKGC Blend

EARWORM......NOOOOOOOOO!!!

September 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterStephanie

Good grief, what on Earth did they try to charge for that failure?

WV: lunmeg - arm and a leg?

September 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

OK I feel old because I had to look this up on Wikipedia. Had no idea there was ever a 'gummi bear' cartoon! But horrific wreck either way!
wv: poupled. This cake looks like a gummi bear poupled on the table

September 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Oh...I recall reading about when the archaeologists found that thing in a cave in France. It's a fertility icon, right?

September 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterGypsy

That cake looks sooo sad, especially since the cakes on either side of it don't look nearly as dismal as that poor bear(?)...

wv: mishan
The frustrated decorator, drunk, took a look at their creation and thought, "Ish shomethin mishan? NAAAH! Looksh fabulush!"

September 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterBryan

hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahhaha i was rolling on the floor at work at 10am. imagine the stares

September 13, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterokorolev

LOL! That was a HORRIBLE image to put up in the middle of a beloved childhood song!!!!

September 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAdele

Um. Ummmm. Uuuummmm. Sorry, I've got nothin'.

September 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJennifer

My kids picked up this charmer at day care...

(sung to the tune of the ABC song)

A, B, C, E, F, G
Gummy Bears my enemy,
One is red, one is blue,
One is peeing on my shoe,
Now I'm running for my life,
'Cuz the green one's got a knife

September 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJay

Magic and mystery sure are a part of this thing's history.

September 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSuzanne :-)

Sweetlime says: I for one would like to thank you for filling in the rest of the words to the song that I have been singing to my co-workers for weeks now for weeks! It is a thing at my work.

September 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterKara

I was getting very chipper dancing in my cubicle about to relive my childhood days when I scrolled down - chirp chirp is right - eek gawds!

September 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAlisha Rene'

It reminds me of an ancient art artifact. I studied several pieces that looked an awful (stress the swful) lot like this.

I was going to refrain myself from commenting-- but the WV is too easy to not pass it up...

WV: undelizz -- this is the most UNdelizz looking cake I've ever seen.

My question is why was it even on display??? Was there not room in the back cooler while they finished decorating it? Or was someone deliberately TRYING to get published on CW?

September 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterLissy

It looks like a naked mole rat!!

September 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJustyne

Hurray! I love that song (and the show) I was singing along and then *screeeech* saw the "cake." It's a sad day in Gummi Glen.

September 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterCatherine

What in the heck is that even made of? And now I've got that stuck in my head... cheers!

September 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMolly Malone

Um. How does one get "Gummi Bear" from that miserable vomitous mass? All I see is a poo-colore, 3D ink blot.

September 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSam Gamgee

you always manage to get the most random and irritating ear worms stuck in my head all day long. and that is one of the most wrek-tastic cakes ever!

September 13, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterteri

Well... Magic and mystery is probably part of that thing's history anyway!

September 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterLaurenH

Ah - so nice of you to publish a child's art work. They expressed themselves with..... pooh. Ah, no, um. Mud? Hmmm... maybe not. Um, they expressed themselves..... with..... cake? Ah, well, anyway --- they EXPRESSED themselves. That's the important thing. Most eloquently, they created their own version of a ...... bear? Yeah. Ok.

September 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMaureen

OMG. My husband started sing me this song with weekend, and now it is on Cake Wrecks? What a coincidences.

September 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMarinan

Uh, yikes? o_O

September 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterStephanie

No, no! It's artistic genius! the lack of color is... is... it represents...

The hollowness of the gummies?

It's a penis cake, obviously, not a Gummi Bear cake. :)

(no, of COURSE it isn't, but it makes about as much sense to me)

September 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterTrevor

When in the history of gummi bears has there been a putty-brown bear? And what is that foul looking smear on the plate BTW?

September 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

That is a most unfortunate cake, but I use to love that cartoon.

September 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMere

Gimme a W!
Gimme a T!
Gimme an F!
What does that spell?
Whatever that thing is! Yay!

'Poo Bear' indeed -- this artifact ought to be buried deep in the Hundred-Acre Wood. At midnight.

September 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterCraig

Jen- Love you so much. I tried to sing that song for my husband the other day, and he had never seen the cartoon, so he looked at me like my brain was made of gummi. Sunni and Grammy and the little one... ahh, childhood memories.

wv: catheek I think that baker tried to serve something the cat heeked up.

September 13, 2010 | Unregistered Commentercontemporaryscarlett

I loved that show and its theme song. Yay! (The cake wreck...not so much).

September 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterKristen

...uh...

As for the ohrwurm, I give you another: Life is like a hurricane/
Here in Duck - burg/
Race cars, lasers, aeroplanes/
It's a duck - blur!/
Might solve a mystery,/
Or rewrite history!

Ducktales! (a - whooh ooh)

Speaking of which, where ARE the Duck Tales cakes?

September 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Due to my advanced age and lack of cultural exposure, lots of times I don't get your references, so I look them up.

I didn't find your gummy bear song, but I found this one. Check it out!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=astISOttCQ0

That's a song that will get stuck in your head, not to mention the cool dancing!

September 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

I think it might be the gopher from Caddy Shack
