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? ;)

Sorry, Charlie

Warning: Parents, hide your kids. But not necessarily your wives.

There's a lot being said about Charlie Sheen right now - although one could argue that most of it is being said by Charlie Sheen. And while a lot of it might seem a bit crazy, I think you'll find his statements all make perfect sense...when applied to the right cake.

So, in the words of Charlie Sheen, "Just sit back and enjoy the show."

"Most of the time - and this includes naps - I'm an F-18."

"If people could just read behind the hieroglyphic ... if they could put their cryptology frickin' hat on just for two seconds..."

...then maybe they could tell me what the heck this says.

"I've got tiger blood, man."

I hear it tastes like strawberries.

"Resentments...are the rocket fuel that lives in the tip of my saber."

(Aka, "Is that a space shuttle in your pants, or do you need to see a doctor?")

"I've been a veteran of the unspeakable."

"I'm still alive, which is pretty cool."

"I’m tired of pretending I’m not a total bitchin’ rock star from Mars."

"They picked a fight with a warlock."

"We're Vatican assassins. How complicated can it be?"

"I have one speed. I have one gear: Go."

"The only thing I'm addicted to is winning."

"Surprise! That's what winners do."

"I am on a drug. It's called 'Charlie Sheen.'"

By Cake and Art. And go here for the back story.


Thanks to Jennifer D., Gideon S., Lauren W., Katie S., Kathryn R., Tosha S., Angela M., Rebecca J., Anthea H., I.W., & Amy H., who are ALL bi-winning.

Update from john: The Hieroglyphic cake apparently says 'Happy Birthday' in Gujarati, a language common in Western India. How it ended up in a display case in a chain store in Maryland, though, is still beyond us.

Dear Cakewrecks team,

Please ignore all those naysayers and those annoyed with this post. I, for one, appreciate it as I haven't been following the Sheen story at all. So now I won't look like an ignoramous if it gets brought up at work. And I enjoy how cakewrecks is up to date on what's going on and often posts in relation to the happenings of the day. Some of my favorite posts are the news headlines illustrated by cake. Thank you for the daily laugh and moments of awe on Sundays. Keep up the great work!

Have you realized that cake says

Mr Sheen was already rather famous in Australia for both his need for sparkling mirrors and his fondness for saucy blondes!

Keep up the good work CW!

Mr Sheen's clean mirror antics and taste in hot blondes was already well known in Australia!

You, my kind sir, just might be a rock star from Mars FOR REAL!!!!!

The "space shuttle" cake was for a girl? That's the most homoerotic cake I have ever seen that wasn't outright porno.

WV (and I am totally not kidding): brain

If Charlie Sheen still had a brain, he would keep himself out of situations that invite mockery.

Is that Asian Harry Potter?

I respectfully disagree with you (I am not the previous disagreeing poster).

The Sheen fiasco is lose-lose. Maybe he is sick, in which case further media attention feeds his delirium - which is cruel. Otherwise, he is not sick and he is playing us with an invented story of mental illness and/or addiction. In that case, *we* are still poking fun at someone BECAUSE they are ill --- it doesn't matter that we don't know whether it is real or not. What's wrong with us?

A. A. LeBlanc,

Jen and I put together a post based on particularly funny things that one individual said. That's it.

Please note that we said nothing about Mr.Sheen other than he had said these particular things. We didn't judge him. We didn't diagnose him. We didn't call him names. We didn't really even make fun of him.

We took things that he, a public figure, said, for whatever reason, and paired them with cakes. That's it.

I think this particular dead horse is thoroughly beaten.
