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? ;)

Time to Chicken Out

You guys, Easter is this Sunday!


Let's terrorize some children!

"Ohh nooo!"

Oh, YES, 'fraidy cat half-chicken! For far too long now, Easter has been the holiday of the cute and cuddly. Well, NO MORE.

"It's PAYBACK time, beechez."


"Yeah. Just you wait 'til I roll over there, kids. Just you wait.

"Right, Bugsy?"

"Ohh yes. Meet your hippity-hoppity nightmare, young whippersnappers!"

Or shall I introduce you to the Ghost of Easters Past?

Alright. This chick is toast!

Now, brave Wreckies, if ye do doubt your courage - or your strength! - come nae further!

For DEATH awaits you all...

...with nasty, big, pointy teeth!!

[blink blink]



Lamb chop, anyone?

Thanks to Shannon C., Heather, Summer B., Jekka G., Candice C., Danna F., Rachel P., & Jennifer D., who tell me that goes great with mint jelly filling.

Now: run awaaaay!!

Why, oh why, did they make the lamb cake PINK?? It would have been pretty cute if it didn't look like you got a slab of meat instead of cake.

Scary cakes, indeed!

Somehow I don't think flat-leaf parsley is especially complementary to cake... but that could just be me.

What in the world is that fuzzy gray stuff on the 5th??? and what compelled the wreckerator to outline the crotch area?

Oh, the lamb cake is bad --- bad, bad cake color choice. But that rabbit-type thing --- or is it two rabbits? I counted 4 eyes and 2 noses, but only one set of ears. A mutant Siamese-twin rabbit?

Wow... I didn't know Passover Lamb came in leavened form. Wait, I thought it was s'posed to be unleavened this week. Guess that baker was too PC and up-to-date on their knowledge of the Feasts...

Cuddly pink lamb cake. . . with parsley . . . mmmmm.

Nice Ghostbusters reference!

April 20, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterDFrank

That last lamb cake is hilarious! Love that it looks like gross.

April 20, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJodi

I believe there is a typo under the third cake. It should read BAAAhaha. You're welcome.

April 20, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Shouldn't the first lamb cake say "Baaaaaaaahahaha!"?

Gaah, I can't punctuate that right. You know what I mean.

That last cake is major Nightmare Fuel. *shudder*

The last one reminds me of my son's baptism cake. I decided to borrow my mother-in-law's antiquated lamb pan (reminds me--there's a 3-D lamb cake looming up this weekend) and make a nice meringue-frosted lamb cake. It was pretty cute until I decided to brown the meringue and got carried away with the culinary blowtorch...

J.C.!! That lamb cake freaked me out. Made me want to skip the next six meals.

April 20, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterWhite

LOL, I was wondering when the creepy lamb cakes would show up! Love the Ghostbusters and Holy Grail references. You *almost* had a Braveheart quote in there too. :-D

Bugsy is gonna haunt my dreams tonight. Mustn't. Go. To. Sleep.

wv: uncearme: to relieve my seared eyes after viewing those horrid cakes! Ahhhhh!

April 20, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterLoo-E Loo-I

I think the Monty Python reference is quite appropriate for the season. Thank you!
The lamb cake doesn't disturb me quite as much as the psycho, oddly iced bunny CCC... :/

April 20, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterTiff

Bwahahahaha! Love Monty Python, just perfect!

Still though, you could have worked in the "Vicious Chicken of Bristol" in there too, but the killer bunny rabbit is always a favorite!

April 20, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJessicaT

At least it's not smoking.

April 20, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterDani

Oh that last cake is so utterly disturbing!!

April 20, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAmelia Poll

I see the cooked the lamb just the way I like it...rare!

At first I thought that bunny had a nice ... tracts of land. But then I realized that those are supposed to be cheeks.

Still a little traumatized by the 'egg' between its legs, though.

D: D: OMG what...are...they... THINKING?????

April 20, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Honestly, I don't think that lamb cake is a wreck -- I think that person knew exactly what he or she was doing...and it's AWESOME.

April 20, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterRachel

That last cake looks like it would taste good with a nice Chianti...tchtchtch...

April 20, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterCaroline B

Lamb chop cake? Most excellent, although it'd be even better with a Sherri Lewis cake on the same theme.

I am totally getting your Monty Python and the Holy Grail reference there... lovely work, as always.

Did you say whippersnappers?

April 20, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterFluffy Cow

Ugh...I just soiled my armor I was so scared. ('Cus, you know, my job does require that I do wear armor.)

That lamb cake is so creepy and a most unfortunate color.

April 20, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterKSLS Rocks

Why are the lamb cakes always so horrifying???

And what, may I ask, is going on in the ccc rabbit's pants????

(love the Monty Python quote too...hehee...pointy teeth)

At least the lamb cake wasn't red velvet...

"The cake is bleeding!"

April 20, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAlyson

The lamb cake is fan-freaking-tastic! i would love to have that as my next b-day cake!

April 20, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterteri

Ghostbusters reference + Monty Python reference + wreckeration = gold!

April 20, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterOrvillesMom

These cakes are not at all afraid to be wrecked in many ways!

April 20, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

It's about time Halloween got it's due! Er...wait, this is Easter.... Love the lamb cake -- Easter meets SAW VII. These are sick, sick, sick!

wv - brearch: the sound small children will make in the bathroom after they see these cakes.

April 20, 2011 | Unregistered Commentermel

LOl! I am twisted enough to think the lamb cake is horribly awesome! I want one now.

April 20, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterBadcookie

Personally, I had a terrible time tearing my eyes away from the hypnotist lamb (aka wreck #2)....I now feel the funny urge to do something completely embarassing that I wouldn't normally do....

April 20, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterDonna

I'm reminded of the wedding scene in Steel Magnolias with the armidillo groom's cake - it was red velvet. Grotesque!

April 20, 2011 | Unregistered Commenteraep1974

Amanda Mac, Lorein, Amy ~
The 5th cake is supposed to be a rabbit's head and the thing at the bottom is a polka dot bow tie around it's neck. Think 'Roger Rabbit'. The gray stuff in the middle are whiskers that bleed everywhere.

April 20, 2011 | Unregistered Commentertiffanyharvey

Eeekk the first cake is looking at me!!!
And that lamb, WHY?

April 20, 2011 | Unregistered Commentertiny purple elephant

that cute poor little lamb. is that strawberry cake? I love how he's sitting on a bed of parsley, and that a leaf is hanging out of his mouth as he nonchalantly has a snack while being carved up, with an expression on his fondant face like, "What?"

wv: funrock. edible pebbles. or an amusement park for the Flintstones.

April 20, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterjo

1) Nice "Ghost Busters" and "Holy Grail" call-outs!


3) Evil Lamb Face Cake is actually pretty funny. So is Evil Bunny Face Cake.

4) That final lamb cake is FECKIN' HYSTERICAL. I want one. Is that wrong? (blinkblink)

5) There IS no Number 5.

6) You are Number 6.

April 20, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterBADKarma!

That butchered lamb almost made me puke i was laughing so hard. BWA HA HA HA HA HA... I'm sending that to everyone i know!

April 20, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterShannon

That lamb cake is secretly awesome - I would buy that if I didn't have children (who would be horrified by the cake, of course).

April 20, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterWinona

Forget the pink innards, it's the (clearly a choking hazard) EYES on that last lamb! (And they way he's blandly chewing the parsley while he gets dismembered.)

April 20, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterkayk

At least the lamb chop doesn't have a cigarette, but it looks like he's smoking "weed" instead. ;-)

April 20, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterlawnajo

I think it's safe to say that Easter cakes are the most disturbing cakes. Why would you think it's okay to cut up a baby lamb like that? Talk about destroying a kid's view- you may as well say the Easter bunny doesn't exist!

Cake #3: Fenton, Death Sheep from Hell!

( #169

That last one, must be some really good parsley it's chewing.

April 20, 2011 | Unregistered Commentermsyendor

I thought it was cilantro...
