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? ;)

Yesterday Was Thursday

It's Friday, Friday, Friday!!!

Are we we we so excited?


Because it's not just ANY Friday...

[dum dum DUMMM]'s Friday the 13th, lollipops.

Er...I mean, suckers. Yeah.

So beware...


...because today, your baked goods just might try to KILL YOU:

More than usual, I mean.

"I don't remember any legs, but it definitely had arms, because it reached out for me!"

"And then...then it started free-handing flowers with the star tip!!"


Thanks to Joy F., Diess, Ashley W., Rebecca R., & Kimberly C., who think this calls for another visit to...[dum dum DUMMM] Hell's Bakery:


Oh, and remember: tomorrow is Saturday.

And Sunday comes afterward.

I was getting anxious when I didn't have a Cakewrecks post by 10am (and thus a morning procrastination vehicle). Now I see why it was delayed--the SUSPENSE! I may have nightmares from Hell's Bakery!

Very good!!! Scary, spooky, and, as always...funny!!!
I see no other comments yet today, so I'm assuming you know there's a problem with the site? I hope I'm not repeating what 1,639 people have already said!!!! But no other comments are showing, so...
There's something wrong with the site. Thursday's post has disappeared completely, and Friday's has only just appeared, 5 hours late!! Ah...Friday the 13th,
be prepared for anything. AAIIEEEE!!!
wv:baing...I'm really just baing helpful

Are you, Alice, menstruating right now?
Don't ya just love any chance to use Ghostbuster's quotes?!
By the way that 2nd cake kinda looks like it needed a tampon... just sayin'.

Thanks for re-posting the "Hell's Bakery" trailer... I needed the laugh. :)

May 13, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterStephanie

OMG i am honestly CRYING from laughing at the video!

May 13, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterteri

You're back!!! Yipee!!! But...does this mean you lost your post from yesterday?! I hope not, that would just really suck. Not like that's breaking news to you, but yeah....just wanted to say I am hoping for the best for ya!

Hell's Bakery. That's in Hell's Kitchen, right?

Number One, I love your videos. Even covered in blood, they are beautiful, no matter what you say.

Happy Friday the 13th.

WV = talli. If you're keeping a talli, I caught the Ghostbuster's reference.

Friday the 13th hits Cake Wrecks. I'm glad you're finally back! But who ate yesterday's post?

wv: vilyro - a villian in the Bakery From Hell that it's hard to take seriously. "Oh vilyro, I'm over heeeeere."

May 13, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterHeidi B

Hahaha...palm tree hands of terror!

Is it spooky that i just watched "Hell's Bakery" last night?

Thanks again for the laughs, Jen, Jon and team.

What happened to May 12th?

May 13, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterSusan

Can't sleep, the clowns will get me. Can't sleep ...

Whew. For a moment there, I thought you had dropped off. (Bad, Freddy. Back into the oven you go.)

It's my belief that stag in the ocean of flames is where the possessed mounted head in Evil Dead came from.

May 13, 2011 | Unregistered Commentersara

Now I'm imagining a trailer for a horror movie about evil pastry.

"This time, the baked goods...

*random half-second extreme closeup of someone screaming*

...are BAKED EVILS."

I think it's next door.

So when is Hell's Bakery going to be made into a full-length feature film? Because I will definitely be first in line for tickets. Also, I woke up with that song in my head this morning. I would like to thank Rebecca for her "original," "tuneful," and "informative" song. Who knew the days of the weekend could be so hard to remember?

wv-deverous: I sincerely hope that we destroy all bakery sweets before they deverous.

May 13, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterHannah B

That cake full of blood is wicked! lol, though maybe something a bit deeper then just a square cake base =p

May 13, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterWee Tait

Hey everybody, Blogger had a meltdown - or several mini meltdowns - over the last 24 hours, so many blogs are missing posts, comments, etc. Blog owners couldn't even log into their accounts to post something explaining what was happening, so...yeah. They slowly seem to be coming back up.

May 13, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAmi

OMG, that was too funny. I love that video. Niiiiiice putting in the parts from Labyrinth.

May 13, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterRachel

I almost didn't want to get out of bed this morning because of the day. Can you imagine if this was your birthday? And these were one of your cakes? I would change my birthday!

May 13, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterCar Title Loans

LOL too funny! Love the Labyrinth clips!!!

May 13, 2011 | Unregistered Commentersteveandonna

WHEW, glad you're back.
Now I can go make dinner.
In my high heals.
And panties.

May 13, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterSuBee

Was anyone else reminded of Snufalufugus after seeing that first cake? Happy Friday the 13th!!! (0:

May 13, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJaycee

Yay, another hilarious Cake Wrecks video! Great voice-overs =). Thanks for sharing.

May 13, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterBookworm

It is such a good day to bring that song up! Your a genius!

May 13, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMicalah

Love the cover art on the cake decorating book! Of all the things I've see here, a cake carving itself has got to be the creepiest. I want it!
I would love to see the inside, but I'm sure there's copyright issues with posting those picks.

WV: qikerto
In cake decorating, it's qikerto just slap something on there than to learn the proper technique.

May 13, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

I. This one really gave me paws.

II. "Hmm... I've been waiting for twenty minutes and no one has come to the counter. Oh well, I'm sure they're just on break or something. My, what a strange cake."

III. Buy a cake, save a buck.

IV. I don't know which is creepier, the image or the concept of frosted caramel fudge. "It's just not sweet enough yet! I must keep trying! Moohahahahaha!"

Ya think Hell's Bakery is scary now? Just wait 'til they fire up the deep fryer. Heh. Heh heh.

By the way, something was wrong with the site yesterday. Just thought you should know.

wv: repties. "Get the 'l' out of those reptiles, man -- they look hungry!"

Thank Gods tomorrow's Saturday.

Seeing the new trailer reminded me to go look at the old one, last night. Little did I know I was giving myself a preview of today!

The self-decorating cake on the book cover is the stuff of nightmares.

And that's one bloody fine cake in the second slot.

Hey, Donna, what would iMom say about the temporarily disappearing post (and still-missing comments)?

"If you want nice things, you have to take care of them," perhaps?



I've ordered my book, now I'm impay-tient for October to come!

About cake #2, another Dexter cake? :)

May 13, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterFelixAndAva

The only thing that could've made that Bakery from Hell even better would have been if you could've had Sandra Lee's Kwanzaa Cake footage included. Otherwise, that was PRICELESS, priceless, I say!!!!!

May 13, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterBryna

Love all the Rebecca Black references! Ha ha ha ha!

May 13, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

What I want to know, is why is Satan's Bambi crouched amongst a cluster of naughty tentacles?

On second thought, maybe I don't... O_o

May 13, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterBADKarma!

For my next birthday, I want a cake with a creepy deer staring at me from a forest of octopus tentacles.

May 13, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterTim

That first cake made me laugh so hard I scared the cat. I would be nothing but ashamed if I worked in the bakery that produced that....THING....

May 13, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMel

@Bryna said, "The only thing that could've made that Bakery from Hell even better would have been if you could've had Sandra Lee's Kwanzaa Cake footage included."

But that would be redundant. Besides, it wouldn't be fair to include the Kwanzaa cake and ignore all the other nightmares.

If Barbara Anne slams the Bunker door and there's no EPCOT underway, will anyone hear it?

And as we all know, Thursday is Little Friday.

May 13, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

My grandmother was born in 1913, and today is her 98th birthday. I turned 13 on a Friday the 13th, so the two of us scoff at the superstition. Scoff, I say!!! ...but really quietly, just in case the day finds out and gets us. ;-)

Great, now I have that song stuck in my head. I need to go watch the Steven Colbert/Jimmy Fallon version, or Conan O'Brien's parody "Thursday" to banish the memory of the original.

May 13, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMelinda

Have you been listening to that horrid, I mean "wonderful" (bunnies that make things not true!) Rebecca Black song?

May 13, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterSarah

The horror the absolute horror... D:

May 13, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

I for one had a crappy Friday the 13th...and these cake wrecks reflect the whole spirit of it. Still, I'll take one of these cakewrecks as a consolation, no questions asked and comments deferred.

May 13, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterDJ Twisted Sister

Oh come on, Jen, I just got that song out of my head!!

May 14, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterPamela

I am still coming to terms with that blood splotched birthday cake lol. Who, other than a serial killer, would want that for their cake?? And cannot stop watching Hell's Bakery. I won't be shocked if someday there really is a film made..

May 14, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterArlene

Stands and applauds! Bravo, #1, bravo!!

Underwater Zombie Ballerinas- I would soooo see that!!

@Steve the Pocket you rock!

Darn! The other day I saw a white cake with red gel stripes that looked like it had been slashed by Freddy Kreuger. I totally should have sent it in!
