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? ;)

Making New Friends

In an effort to get to know you readers a bit better, today I thought we'd have one of you introduce yourselves. You know, foster a little more community and whatnot.

So, take it away, Debbie!

Hello! My name is Debbie, and this is my first attempt at a Cake Wrecks bio. So I'm nervous, but excited at the same time! Wheee!

So, I'm just going to start talking about what I like, and hope you like it!

Um. Let's see. I am... a relatively new Cake Wrecks reader. Um. I love...


I love every kind of cat.

I love cats with fur, and cats without fur, and cats in hats, and cats that don't even look like cats...


I'm sorry. I just...I just really love cats.

[wiping eyes]

And...and I just want to hug all of them because I love them but I can't 'cuz that's crazy I can't hug every cat. BUT I WANT TO. You know? I WANT TO HUG EVERY CAT.

[blowing nose]

Um. Wow. Sorry - I got a little emotional there. Heh.

I also like


I'm sorry; I'm thinking about cats again.

I just...I just LOVE them, and I WANT them. I want them in a basket, and I want them in little bow ties, and I want them to be on a rainbow, and I want a house FULL OF CATS and we would all ROLL AROUND...

[more sobbing]

'Cuz they're all just so CUTE with their little whiskers...

...and their little ears...

...and their little delicious vital organs...

So, yeah. I guess you could say I'm a cat lover.


And I like to run.

Thanks to Minyassa, David G., Judy E., Briana T., Rachel R., Nancy S., Michelle F., Emily Z., & Stewart C., who are also inspired to run. Far, far away.

And WHILE we're at it...I don't actually see why, in the name of all things HolyCRAPish, that girl is getting so much credit.
I didn't hear her saying Thing One about her love of CAKE.
Where's that, huh? HUH??

Cat-astrophies all! And video Debbie -- I feel your pain, and did you know my middle name is Cat? Call me.....

At Anon. 11:15 a.m. -- Yes! I too had a vision of Tammy Faye as soon as I saw that cake.

wv - pednem: I like to look at cats but I don't like pednem.

That video? Is that for real?

June 20, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMicalah

That 3rd one kind of looks like Snarf.

June 20, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterLittle Lovables

She must have had a cat die recently. That or she's REALLY good at playing a joke, or just crazy.

However, the cakes...... are terrifying and hilarious. ANOTHER great CW post!

June 20, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterBeth Stoneman

Ok, so, that video is seriously hilarious! And I love cats too, but, um, apparently not as much as I thought I did after watching that. I think I need to find something else that I LOVE more....

June 20, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterKris

LMAO @ video. hahahaha

WV: Acker: the noise a Debbie makes when she gets a fur ball.

June 20, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterShannon

WOW!!! I would really love to know how many dates this girl got!!!

June 20, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterLeah F

Ok, so that video is quite obviously hilarious! And I love cats too.... but, um, apparently not as much as I thought I did based on that. I think I need to find something else that I can love more.... (sigh)

June 20, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterKris

lmao ...ive seen that vid before i was gonna post it in my comment lol

June 20, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

The orange one isn't that bad...except for the, um, "legs."

June 20, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterNYCGirl

OMG! That is all I can say!

June 20, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterSheila

This post is so full of win I can hardly stand it!

June 20, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterDGC

I feel really bad for the cat hoarder. Do you think she's just a brilliant comedian, or she really uploaded that to get a date?

Am I the only one who thinks the couples in eHarmony ads look related to each other? Like eHarmony gets a DNA sample and matches people with a first cousin (as long as they're not the same gender)?

wv: sobbrand - a video isn't complete if it's just a rant - you have to sob too and create a sobbrand.

My wv skills are weak.

June 20, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterLucky66

I'm guessing the last one is for veterinarian grads? And that video - regardless of whether it's authentic or not, I actually had a 6th grade student who would get like that whenever she talked about cats... so, yeah. It can happen.

June 20, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMiss Thies

Even the dissection is not the worst. The worst is CATS WITH EYELASHES.

Little painted, coy, on-a-what-not china CATS WITH EYELASHES.

Sorry---must be PTSD talking. Too many visits to Aunt Lo's house in my childhood. Makes even THESE cakes look OK.

Geeze, I always thought Villanova was a good school! MBA? MultipleBabyAttitude? Oh, please, can I take her my taxes?

June 20, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterjude

Did anyone else notice that the "class of '09" sign on the vital organs cake looks a lot like "class of '69" - now I have a vision of it sititng there for 42 years while all the entrails rot :(

June 20, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAM Quinn

The last one is horrifying! Gahhhh!

June 20, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

And people wonder why she's still single...

June 20, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterDonna

Gosh, I should KNOW by now not to read cakewrecks while eating! Seriously, I hope that last cake was for someone graduating from vet school or something. Double eww! "I want the intestine piece!"

June 20, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterLaura P.

I was sure that the first one was the backside of Mamma cat, birthing a very happy kitten.

June 20, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterSarah

I feel so sorry for that lady, I can't imagine what it would be like to be an internet joke. She may not be fully with it, so I think this post was done in poor taste.

Also, on the whole, these cats aren't that badly done in comparison to some of the true, laughter causing contraction cakes that are pictured.

June 20, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

OMG if that girl is for real she's NEVER getting a date with that video. restraining order, maybe.

June 20, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Is the tiger kitty actually a frighteningly reused Easter bunny pan?

June 20, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterSarah Northrip

So let's say for a second that you filmed a video where you go on and on about how much you love cats, to the point that you start crying about it. Why would you then post it too the internet??? No one is going to want to date you. Ever!

June 20, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterbetweencitylimits

Cyndi - I'm now sobbing too. I love cats. Excellent job Debbie.

June 20, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

LOL! Love it, love it! :)

"Making-The-Most-Of-It" Tutorials:

1~Add a dot under the "tail" so that it looks like a question mark.
It will make sense.

2~ Shove a carrot in the mouth and save it for next Easter.

3~Let it sit for a few (more) weeks in a dry place. Halloween comes sooner or later; you'll have your mask ready.

4~Leave this little baby alone. He's mine.

5~Enter it in the Search For The New Tony the Tiger Contest. What with his au courant tiger-patterned chef hat, he'd be a sous-in.

6~Give this thing its own TV evangelist show. It looks like Tammy Faye with run-proof mascara. (But still ugly)

7~Such a hopeful little expression. ((SIGH)) It could be used for...uh... ah...

8~ NOT useful for anything. (Still don't wanna touch this, but why remove the "fur" in the first fondanty place? What--they had to "unwrap" it before they could open it?)

Loved this post!
In case anyone is wondering, the hilarious video is definitely a spoof.

June 20, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJoan

People, the last cake is supposed to be Scratchy! you know from the Itchy & Scratchy show within "the Crusty show" within "the Simpsons"! I know, it's still wrecky but very funny :P

June 20, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterDeray


Well, cats do HAVE eyelashes...
They're not usually fond of mascara or eyeliner, is all.

Yes! You are the ONLY one!! Perv!

Anon @ 1:14 pm,

The girl in the video was acting. True, it would be kind of sad if it were real but it is most definitely not. She's trying to get the attention of Hollywood.

Young people... sheesh...


OMG! Debbie and I could be twins except that I love cats more.


June 20, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAnneke (Mudhooks)

@ John (THE John)~~~

CRAP- you're not kidding.
That twit (that I felt oddly *touched* by and everything) was going for Hollywood? THE Hollywood!?!

As IF!!! Like, I'm so sure big producers are looking for dopey twits who can't say half a sentence without throwing in "UM," and "I just, UM" every half-breath. Totally. Almost as bad as Valley Girl crap.
I feel like I've been had!
Somebody, throw a cake in her face!
Make it an unbaked one!


June 20, 2011 | Unregistered Commentersendingtheclowns

Love the video and had to show that this parody is too funny not to share and co-relates with this post almost too much!

June 20, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJaz

Gosh, somehow I missed the part about the delicious vital organs in "Debbie's" eHarmony bio. ;-)

It's a good thing the wreckerator used the plastic kitty head on the first cake. Otherwise it would be another pictionary cake for sure.

@Leah 9:38am No, that video isn't for real. If you look at the other videos by HartmannCara, you will see that she is quite the little actress. Here is the url for her video response to her eHarmony video:
She really did a good acting job on her eHarmony bio.

June 20, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterKati

wow. Somebody's dosage is not quite right.

June 20, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

She has GOT to be a fake. But in related news have you seen the video of the engineer/cat lover who responded to her? This is hysterical, please watch.

June 20, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterCL Halsey

This was so life-completing I even shared it on Facebook for everyone to openly judge me.

wv: crafy- awww, those cats wuvers are so crafy today!

June 20, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterChloe

Oops, I hadn't read all the comments yet when I posted mine, so I apologize for not naming all the rest of you folks who asked if the video was real. And I missed that John already told you that the video was a spoof.

I agree with Gary that the vivisection cake wins as the best cake of the bunch since you can actually tell that is a cat. Good call Gary.

June 20, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterKati

I got through the video up to the part where she said "" and then I lol'd and scared my coworkers.

June 20, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterThatDeborahGirl

Is it wrong for me to laugh at that video even though a cat climbed in my lap while I was watching it?

June 20, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterDoctor Tarr

Hey, that is a well done ball of yarn. I really love yarn ... Do people who didn't see that the vid was a spoof order CCCs [ PaTooie! ] and wonder why they aren't square?
--Rev W

wv: After looking at these cakes, I think I'll have the sallag instead.

June 20, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

LMAO I just totally posted that video on my FB the other day! ROTF! That is too funny! Thanks for making my day!!!

Not unless your cat was offended by the video, in which case, yes.


June 20, 2011 | Unregistered Commentersendingtheclowns

I fully expect to see Debbie on the next episode of animal hoarders.
