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? ;)

Spot The Hidden Mickey

Who's the center of the club
that's made for you and me?




Ohhh! MLT!*

Thanks to the amazing Sweet Designs Kitchen for having a sense of humor matched only by their talent. Wreck on, guys.

*So perky!

Bahahaha...the Pincess Bride reference. *wipes tears from eyes*

I was at the library this morning, telling a friend about this site, and suggested she type it in to see what I meant. Well, up pops poor old Mickey, and she just lost it. I thought we were both going to get tossed out for making so much noise.

And she's the librarian!

oh, man, that is sooooo wrong.

WV: hasto -- I hasto have that one for my birthday.

haha - although a good MLT for me will always be Mutton, Lettuce, and Tomato... when the Mutton is nice and Lean :)

"Oh, Mickey, you're so flat:
Bet you will taste good like that:
Hey, Mickey!"

Hurt myself laughing on this one! So sweet, the pain!!

April 30, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterPhoenyx

That is fabulous! Thanks for the laugh!

April 30, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMelissa

LOL! I'm going to put a link on my blog for this.

April 30, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterConnie Moreno

WOOHOO! I want this for my birthday this year!

April 30, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

*sniff sniff* :(

I guess I wasn't the only one who sent this photo/link to you?

I know what it was -- there were sooooo many people who sent it, that it was impossible to thank them all in the tiny italics section after the post, because, you know, there's limited space on the blog and there's only so much typing one can do before Fiery Finger Fatigue sets in, so, in order to save precious cakewrecky fingers, as well as the feelings of those whose names couldn't fit, all the names were left off?

Yeah, that must be it. *sniff* *wipes eyes*

Well, at least it got on Cakewrecks, to be seen and enjoyed by all (as well as cause unintentional library laughter and accidental soda spewing.)

You know I love you guys. ;)

April 30, 2011 | Unregistered Commenteramyandtenaya

"That gives me the steamboat willies."

like, like, a million times like!

Freakin' awesome.

I'm a DisGeek and love Mickey, in fact, we're having lunch together in a few weeks!! :-D But come on, that's hilarious!!

What I wouldn't pay for someone to take a good 8x10 or 11x14 of that with them into a meeting with the Mickster himself, just to see what might happen...

April 30, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterstaxia

HA! Perfection!

April 30, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterGina

This is so awesome--I want that cake. Love the PB reference!

I'm going to try posting this comment anonymousely (ha! That was a typo, but I'm leaving it) to see if it goes through. I've been having major issues with errors for the last few days when I try to log in.

Melinda (one of them anyway--there seem to be at least two of us.)

wv--supgzxz: 'Sup, gzxz, with the weird error messages? (OK, I scrolled down and see that I'm still logged in. Here goes nothing...)

Play by play of reading this post - Me: Awwww "::singing along:: M-I-C K-E-Y M....aaaaaahhhhhhh ::Gasp:: ack!!" Husband: "What!?" Me: "Cakewrecks" Husband: "Oh, okay." Me: "No! Look!" Husband: "Ha! Princess Bride joke, cool!"

So wrong but so funny!

April 30, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterKirsten

I love Mickey, but really... this should have earned a Sunday Sweet posting, don't ya think?. It is really a piece of art, and I am considering making a framed poster!

Gotta watch some PB first though. Priorities right?


May 1, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Oh. Ooooh! Good heavens. That was my laugh for the evening.

"Mickey Mouse Club Sandwich"---that probably wouldn't make the "before and after" category on Wheel of Fortune. (What would Annette say?)
One of your funniest posts ever---and that's really saying something!

May 1, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterCarol

That is wrong on so many levels but still soemhow funny

May 1, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Hey Jen, do you have anything with Pooh Bear executed in it? I think I might like that... drowning in honey, killed by Piglet (we all know it's the quiet shy ones that you have to look out for...), anything???

May 1, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

A visual pun AND a Princess Bride reference in the same post - I thoroughly approve. :)

May 1, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterStephanie

Bwahahaha! I love it!

May 1, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterIce Queen

Now that's the way to slip someone a Mickey.

May 1, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterCraig

My friend's reaction: "That's horrible!"

I loved it, though.

May 1, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterOmnia Clepe

I just have to say, your hidden Princess Bride references make my day whenever I see them. Oh, thank you, Cake Wrecks.

May 2, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAlyse

...But that's not what he said---he distinctly said "To blave" and as we all know, to blave means to bluff, heh? So you were probably playing cards, and he cheated--

Liar! Liar! Liar!

Get back, witch!

I'm not a witch, I'm your wife, but after what you just said, I'm not even sure I want to be that anymore.

You never had it so good.


May 2, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJen

That is possibly the funniest cake. It is truly well done and intentionally and icky mickey!

May 3, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJulie

That is hilarious! An icky micky club sandwich and the detail is awesome! too funny.

May 3, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJulie

Mmm...when the Mickey is nice and lean...

May 8, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterKristina

I'm a huge Disney fan and usually hate when anyone "disses" the mouse, but this is totally hysterical... LOVE it.
The creativity is amazing and the work is incredible.

June 1, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterLorie Shewbridge

Ohmygosh. I keep bouncing from "noooooo!" to laughing really hard.
