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? ;)

Howdy, Pilgrim?

Thanksgiving is coming, my friends, so here's a handy guide for identifying the goods in your local bakery:

 

1) Anything in a black hat is a pilgrim.

"Top o' the morning to ye!"

 

 "Hola."

 

"Buh-KAWK!"

 

2) Anything in a blue headband is a Native American.

"Could I...BE any creepier?"

 

"Yep, I guess I could."

 

"Now let's get sweatin' to those oldies, ladies!"

 

3) Everything else is a turkey.

Probably.

 

Thanks to Brittany W., Louise C., Angela B., Angelica W., Jenn, Dave B., & Samantha E., who figure that last wreck is worth at least two bucks.

 

Hey Austin!  We'll see you tonight at 7pm.  WOOHOO!!!

What I want to know is: What happened to the EYES of the Mexican pilgrim?????

Decorators: please PLEASE stop decorating with brown frosting!!! It looks poo-ish! Unappetizing!

And i would feel like I had been cursed if I ate one of those native american faces--my people were not so nice to their people, you know...

Oh my god. Absolutely hilarious! The one with the mustache is especially creepy.

That first pumkin cake just looks OLD.

Is the chicken-pilgrim wearing a thong on its head?? What's with the black lines everywhere??

The turkey is kinda cute. And "Gobbles?" adds to it, as though it would to know if it may gobble more than once...or isn't sure that it is, indeed, a turkey...or maybe it's asking if the deer are food.

Once again, you have brought me to tears and caused me to wake my son with my uncontrollable laughter! (Bad mommy!)

Tiny plastic deer get the worst gigs, I swear. First it was the redneck camo wedding cake and now it's the Gobbles? freak of nature turkey cake. They just can't get a break! Please, somebody make a wonderful Sunday Sweet cake for tiny plastic deer! The poor things have got to be so demoralized!
And speaking of demoralizing... those Indian cakes are simply unnecessary. It hurts, it seriously hurts to look.

Guess I am the only one who sees H R Puffnstuff in cake #3?

"Gobbles?" will be my new holiday greeting of choice. Only to be said whilst raising eyebrows and opening eyes wide in surprise.

is it just me or does #4 (the first indian) look like the face of bo?

November 15, 2011 | Unregistered Commenternatalie

I feel the third cake should be saying "wark"!

Is that last cake of a ghost turkey attacking two deer? All I could think of for what it could be lol. Wow..just wow to the others. Made me wonder if I fell into the twilight zone since these cakes make no sense holiday wise. But wreckerators rarely make sense it seems anyways.

My husband just said that it looks like the 80's blew up on that last cake lol.

Hey!! The tiny Bucks decided to wander over from the camo wedding cake!!! I wonder how they are liking the recognition they get now that they can be seen... Although, with a giant, dirty, neon bird embryo chasing them, I bet they wish they had stayed put. It looks like a zombie baby turkey that hatched too early...
yuck...

@natalie:

I love my Doctor Who references, I do--but I went back and looked at Cake #4 three or four times (a couple times upside down) and I gotta say "Face of Boe" is stretching it. I just don't think it's that good.

November 16, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterSaraCVT

i thought the second one was a pirate!

November 16, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterali

Wow. Talk about your Ugly Americans.....

So. . .the last cake I think I heard that venison not turkey was actually served and the wreckerator heard that at the last minute too and thought "Oh, yea, deer I've got some of those, I want to be authentic! Yeah!"

That "turkey Cake" looks like the Mummenschanz toilet paper face. My husband thought it was Gonzo from The Muppets. Our inner Indians are shedding tears (from laughing)

Just want to share this "great" news about "the turkey-shaped turkey breast" where "it's a turkey breast molded to look like an entire turkey, wings and all":
http://shine.yahoo.com/shine-food/turducken-205700854.html

Yeah, and the same company also makes "a pork loin molded in the shape of a tiny piglet".

Isn't this wonderful? Two great dishes for Thanksgiving! (NOT!)

My husband saw the first Native American cake and said, "Ugh! Turtle Jesus cake."

The giant, translucent turkey on the last cake reminds me of that episode of Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, where Hercules fights the giant chicken that is terrorizing towns. Maybe it flew over the Atlantic to start a new life terrorizing deer?

November 24, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterEmma

OMG, that last one had me laughing so hard I had tears coming out of my eyes. It's a rainbow turkey with bugged out eyes! Lol!
