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? ;)

Wrecking Dawn

I realize many of you aren't up to date with the Twilight series, but don't worry: I'm here for you.

Besides, according to Wikipedia this latest installment of sparkly vampires and shirt-o-phobic werewolves is really just your basic story of love, marriage, childbirth, and C-sections performed with teeth.

Aren't you glad I went with "teeth" instead of "C-section?"


Oh. Ok. Here ya go:

Um...There's a sucker born every minute?


A few more things you need to know about Twilight:

1. Vampires "sparkle" in almost exactly the way this cake doesn't.


Werewolves, on the other hand...

They glisten.


2. Vampire family trees are really complicated...

...but are perfect for celebrating a 6-year-old's birthday.


3. The red thing is an apple.

Or a tomato, in case you hate the movie.


4. If you're a vampire, then this is a pick-up line:

If not, then no amount of body glitter will help you. Sorry, fellas. (Besides, I'm pretty sure the pink plastic fangs would be a dead giveaway.)


Thanks to wreckporters Cathy B., Heidi D., Kate B., Christopher L., Anony M., Hayley & Hillary, & Jill M. for today's stake-out.


Hey Orlando!  We'll see you tonight at 7pm for our last show.  WOOHOO!!!

Cake #- well just about all the cakes made me a bit ill. No, the c- section cake didn't help. *shudder*

As much as I adore the Twilight movies these cakes made me go blech lol. If a sparkly vampire came at me with fake plastic pink fangs not only would I die laughing I would think the poor vamp has gum disease. Evil wreckerators.

I didn't even know the last one had plastic fangs on it. I thought it was a pink swirl of icing and got really confused.

Those cakes are absolutely horrendous and hilarious at the same time. Those cakes are creepier than any vampire or werewolf.

I must admit that after your comment on the first one, I thought. "Well NO ONE would actually make a c-section cake". Right? Right?

Could someone tell me why none of the vampires sparkled in Breaking Dawn? The wedding was outside during the day. Edward and Bella played chess outside in equatorial Brazil. And there were other sunny scenes ...

I saw it. I thought Taylor Lautner's voice was significantly less boyish and nasally. While no RADA* thespian, he did improve. Peter Facinelli looked like he had gained the freshman 15. well, it was ok.

Did I catch a Douglas Adams reference in #3's caption? Also, I am on board with loving boys who sparkle... but I prefer drag to Twilight.

On an unrelated note, has anyone heard of Rifftrax?
@bookishbethany- Hahahahaha! you are so funny!

I actually thought the second cake is kind of funny, like Alien or something. The hand is actually pretty good. The sign is kind of garish, and the decorator could have smoothed out the belly frosting a bit, but. . . Overall. . . Kind of amuses me. Heh.

Is it just me, or does it bother anyone else that in the first cake, the drops are dripping the wrong way. How are they falling up?!

Oh my god, I laughed out loud at the "sucker born every minute" line XD DANG, that was funny.
