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? ;)

Estonian Kissing Day

According to The Repository Of All Knowledge And Wisdom In Our World (aka, Wikipedia) today might be a Valentines-ish type of day in some remote corner of the world or potential worlds. In fact, I'm almost 63% sure that today is, in fact, "Kissing Day" in the western region of Estonia.

Or was that on Epsilon Ceti B II?

Whichever, the point is that I can post old Valentine's cakes without fear of the "fact" police getting all up in my cakey "business."

Now, kiss me, you piece of...chocolate!

After all, you alone hold my heart:

Not to mention my bowels.

What, still not convinced? Then allow me to inscribe a few sweet nothings for you.


[finger gun]

[double wink + finger gun combo]

[licking fingers and smoothing eyebrows]

SO...are you a puddle of oozing desire yet?


Ok, time to break out the big guns:

[tongue waggle]

(You know, whether you read that as a command or an adjective, it's equally romantic.)

[tiger pose]


Need I say more?

Yeah. I didn't think so.

Thanks to Meagan M., Greg M., Kimberly B., Amber T., Natsk, Amy I., Rebekah K., Michael D., & Kyra, who always talk smack when they're feeling peckish, but still refuse to give me any lip.

I still can't get past the first image. Is that a turd? I don't know how I would feel if that were my cake...

You know, the bowels are the seat of emotion in some cultures. ;)

@Mari: I totally want to see what cakes come out for Estonian Killing Day.

c'mon KISS ME. You are gate. And I am tours, always.

That last cake makes me feel a bit sick... The pink of the icing is hideous, and the fact it's saying "Kiss me" with its tongue sticking out like that is... ewww. Just horrible.

*sigh* Epsilon Ceti B II?? It's Ceti Alpha V, for Jim's sake! It's like I don't even know you any more, Jen. *sigh*

off to sulk in a corner (and the diodes down my left side hurt(and you're damaging my calm))

P.S. what the frak IS that poo mound supposed to be, anyway?

The "Hello Gorges" could also have been made as a greeting towards the "high dollar" car dealership in Omaha. (And they pronounce it "gorgeous") Taking the "Know it All" bullet for the midwest region.

wv: suintr. Your mind must be suintr something else the way some of the cakes turn out posted on this website.

These cakes are so funny!!

I would love to give someone I was ticked off at the first cake: "Kiss my s***!" But if I did, I wouldn't be a good follower of the wisdom of the G8 philosopher Sun Shin, the author of "The Arm of Wart." But people often mistake his sayings for those of Confuse-us.

I did every one of those romantic motions as I read them...before I realized I was in a lobby with strangers.

April 7, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterLauren

These were delightful. Defrigginlightful.

Illiterate people need love and cakes let's not "jujj" them, k?

This was fantastic. Just what I needed to end my day...a lot of laughter! Thanks for brightening my day!!

Perhaps the "LIVE" cake was for someone's boyfriend or girlfriend who was fighting for their life in the ICU on Valentine's Day.

I'm thinking that [tongue waggle] would really go well with the last cake. Blech!!!

Well, the bowels were once considered the seat of the emotions, so . . . :)

You've got me rolling!
Those red heart cooking look like they were inscribed with the "love of a man".

April 8, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterThe Beaudoins

Yay for Estonia! B

April 8, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterTwilight

I KNEW I should have submitted the picture of the cake in my grocery that said "Be Mime!"

April 8, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMichelle B. Baker

My brain exploded over that first one. Ewwwwwww kissed by a pile of poo lol. And come on they can try and spell check when they write on cakes and cookies..can't they? At least none of these was sorry for giving anyone herpes lol.

Esimene, me suudleme kõik eestlane. Teise me suudleme teie!

aThe cakes were hilarious on their own, but the "love" commentary.....Jeez, I spit my coffee everywhere with the "smoothing eyebrows" one!!! :) Thanks for the laugh...and the mess...!!

Wreckerator #3: "What do you mean, 'Hello Gorges' is spelled wrong? Spell check certainly doesn't think so!"

April 8, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMonica

Hahahahaha!!! That first cake!

Just like I have never gone in the ocean without thinking of a great white shark after seeing JAWS, so too will I never eat another Hershey's Kiss without thinking of that smiley-face, google-eyed, warm-looking turd of chocolate on that first "Kiss Me" cake!!!

You had everyone in the family laughing at THAT happy little blob. :)

April 8, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterBhakti

I know it LOOKS like a pile of poo, but I'm still convinced that it must be the rare, legless Goomba, on prozac. If nothing else, that would be slightly more appetizing than a pile of poo ;)

Hey, maybe the Hello Gorges one was bought for Josh Gorges, the hockey player for the Canadiens. :P

April 9, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterSpak

That last one.. wow.

April 10, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterkimberley

I´m also Estonian and have not heared about the kissing day...

But I know for shure that the National Estonian Killing Day is cancelled for years now, cause there is only 1,2 milion of us left...

"Hello Gorges" - was that cake for a "Valley Girl"?
