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? ;)

The Super Bowl of Sunday Sweets!


Awww yeah, Cake Wrecks fans, we are NOT going to disappoint on this Super Bowl Sunday! Granted, the three of us know as much about football as we do Japanese ventriloquism, but we wouldn't dream of featuring non-Super Bowl-related cakes on such an auspicious occasion. In fact, today we're going the extra mile and celebrating the entire list of playoff teams with amazing Sweets. Booyah!

First, remember in the playoffs when that guy from the Patriots was all like, "I've got the ball and I'm running toward the goal with it!!"


by Cake Creations by Lisa




Or when that other guy was all, "We're in a team called the Colts! And we're gonna win!"


by Bake Me a Cake



But golly, we were all thrown for a loop when those Jets hit the court!



by Caryn's Cakes



And when they went up against those Falcons, boy... we never could have predicted that thing that happened at that one point there.



by Michelle Cakes




But my favorite part of the playoffs was when that one team fought against the Bears, and the ball went over there and everyone SCREEEEAAAMED!!!

by Layers of Love




And then the Chiefs drove up from that place the Chiefs are from and took the field with a vengeance!

by Doodle Cakes




Yep, football really is the best, right? I mean, it's like magic when the Seahawks hit the ice!



by Naera



And then, oh SNAP! The Ravens came out of nowhere and were at the 40 yard line... the 30... the 20...



Yeah. That's SO Raven.



And the Saints, of course, will hear no evil, see no evil, AND speak no evil against a game as bananas as this. AM I RIGHT?!?



By Andi Cakes






But it was really getting down to the wire when the Eagles came into play. They began to take it easy, and I can't tell you why, but it was like hell froze over! They made the long run and began to take it to the limit!



By the Disneyland Bakery. We think.




And then it all came down to two teams... the Packers and the Steelers.

Man, the Packers traveled all the way from Boston to go head to head against the Milwaukee Steelers.



by Pink Cake Box



But the Steelers were all like, "We're not gonna lose, no way!! We're gonna take that round thing and run until the guy in black and white blows his whistle!"



by The Cake Company: Warrington


Will the Steelers steel themselves to steal a victory? Only time will tell. And 'til then, we'll just keep cheering on our favorite team.

AWEsome post today!!

I am not a huge fan of football, though I do 'get it', after having had it explained when I innocently asked, "Why only go for 10 yards? Don't they want to score a TD?"

That aside -- I totally 'get' your post today, and it is over the top hilarious! Perfect for those of us who enjoy a game now and then, but also like to poke some fun, as the commercials are the best part of the SB.

It's also great for those of us who LOVE FABULOUS CAKES!

Very sweet mix of subjects... and the Jets cake is even their colors (see the stripe of green?)!!

Smiling at them all and singing away with the Eagles as I check in from Boston, routed through Milwaukee, on my way to California.

I love the blog but it's even better that it's being done by a Red Sox fan! two days until truck day!!

February 6, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

It takes a special kind of person to so perfectly blend humor and gorgeous cakes (you know, without ever mocking anything).

Well played. Well played indeed.

I have a feeling I would have enjoyed this post even more if I had known whether the team names you picked were actually football names. I obviously like sports about as much as Jen, John and the other Jen. :) Great job!

February 6, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterKelly

And the ska kids rejoice at that last cake! :D

February 6, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterbassbone

and the Packers packed the Steelers! Late getting here today, awesome cakes!!! I loved the mix ;-}

February 6, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterKaren Valinda


Love the humor and only someone who knows a little something about football could pull something like this off. All the Eagles lyrics had me laughing out loud!

Sorry, but those who keep pointing out the different city name seem to be missing the point. Lighten up, it's supposed to be funny! That said, to all those who were offended, Anonomyous @ 5:54pm explains it well.

Great job guys!!! Go Red Sox!

Love it! You've captured the essence of a total non-sports-person trying to appreciate sports. :) In other news, I got giddy and squealed when I saw an actual Wreck at the grocery store and no one was there to stop me from taking a photo! Hope it gets used :)

Great commentary! And I'm totally in love with the Pooh cake.

February 7, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAngie

Wonderful cakes! I love, love, looooove the Winnie the Pooh one!

February 7, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMichelle

ummmmmmmmm... the steelers are from pittsburgh. you know, in pennsylvania.

February 7, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

The winnie the pooh cake is so cute!!!

Great post, as always. Thanks for bringing so much joy to the otherwise horrible football day!

February 7, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Wow, The Milwaukee Steelers?

You do realize that the Packers are the ones from Wisconsin, right? Of course, I only know this because I'm from Wisconsin, and it's kind of hard to ignore.

The Steelers are from somewhere over in Pennsylvania.

February 7, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterSarah

I'm stealing these jokes and packing them away for future use (didn't Milton Berle once say that?).

Eagles. Raven. I love it.

Thanks for the laughs, as always!

February 7, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterEllen

Considering I never watch football I loved these lol. Now hides from Superbowl fans hoping they don't throw wrecks in my direction.. unless of course it has sprinkles :D lol.

February 7, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterArlene

I am absolutely in awe of the "Colts" cake. The sculpting looks like the leather tooling on a really nice saddle. Any idea how the fondant shaping was done? Molded perhaps? Then airbrushed or painted? It's just amazing.

February 7, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterLee

Good grief! I can't believe that some people just don't have a sense of humor. Great post, and that comes from a football fan. Loved the quality of the cakes, especially the Colt one, but didn't get the Chief one at all. (Thanks to posters who clarified). This was a fun end to the weekend when the Packers won the SuperBowl! Yay!

WV - whiju - Whiju piss off so many football fans? *hee hee*

That's not a man in black and white, it's a woman! Or a man in drag. Either way, it's a policewoman's uniform.

American Football: is that the one with those long bats on a green baize table?

My confirmation wort is "pratina". Like "prat in a tizz about correct uniform nomenclature". That told me.

February 7, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

No Panthers, Lions, Bengals, or Jaguars? :(

Surely someone out there makes non-wrecky cat cakes!

February 7, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterpikkewyntjie

Best football coverage EVER! The game made more sense then ever before. : )

February 7, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterKarla

...Pororo? What are you doing at the Super Bowl?

February 7, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

This post was awesome!! Though I have to admit, I'm laughing even more at the people who keep correcting the cities. Good grief people...have you not been reading CW long enough to know these posts are in jest?? Please, please rediscover your sense of humor. I promise you'll enjoy the site a lot more.

February 7, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMary

Wow very creative and delicious!!! Yummy Can't wait to buy one like those!

February 7, 2011 | Unregistered Commentersim only deals

Best football-related anything. Ever. Because I actually understood everything!


February 7, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterBecky

Love the Packers one.

February 7, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterGlasgow Cakes

I think that Disneyland Hotel cake pre-dates 2008. The monorail is the older style Mark V shape, rather than the Mark VII trains that have been in service since June 2008.

February 8, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterSyracuseWolvrine

Good one! And thank goodness I looked at this post AFTER the baby/pregnant eeky cake post!

February 8, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterNoelle

@Anonymous 2/6 @ 5:04 said, "Please try not to jump to offense, it's exhausting." That belongs on a shirt. Actually, it belongs on a billboard. Just sayin'.

#3 That jet is seriously cool!

#6 "...the Chiefs drove up from that place the Chiefs are from..." LOL -- at risk of offending some people, that's about how closely I follow football. Though I watched the Salad Bowl -- no, wait... Super Bowl -- at my pastors' house and actually enjoyed it.

#8 That Raven cake is so life-like!

#10 "Welcome to the Hotel California, Eagles!" Great line.

February 9, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterCraig

It's Pittsburgh Steelers

March 13, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Ravens? I expected a photo of my favorite hooded hero. Please post a cake with her.. She's my absolute favorite!

February 11, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterNo Name

Wait, wait! That airplane, is that a cake!? The Colts cake, how perfect for a horse enthusiast. And the Winnie the Pooh cake is so sweet! The last one, that's adorable! I love Sunday Sweets because every week I just say wow, wow, wow!
