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? ;)

It's Sinfully Delicious!

Thanks to eagle-eyed Wreckporter JD R., who will play devil's advocate anytime, if it gets her chocolate cake.

Religious flotsam?

June 21, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterFluffy Cow

Didn't you know? If you don't put a cross on a Devil's food cake, he can get in when you eat it. That's what happened to the girl in The Exorcist, but they had to cut that scene.

At least it wasn't priced $6.66.

Why would anyone buy a cake that's likely to burst into flames at any moment?

WV: clogic -- This baker's logic functions are clogged.

Thank you Elissa!
I've been avoiding devil's food cake for many years, as I feared releasing you know who. I'm going to run out and get a crucifix ASAP, so I can once again enjoy this tasty treat.

Oh my word...I can just see the looks now when I walked into Bible college with reminds me of the white chocolate cross my mother bought me for Easter when I was twelve. It just didn't feel right to eat it...

deckardcanine had me ROFL for real. Thanks for that & off to the bakery!

I wonder if the outline of the cross is burned into the cake? This is why I normally steer clear of obviously religious references in food.

holy water!

wv: ausnacu. After one sneezes, au-shacu!, this cake should not be offered.

I think the sprinkles really sell it, don't you?

OT, but Disney Geeks, Beyond the Rack is having a classic Disney print/poster showcase today: Great stuff, I just ordered the Queen of Hearts print :)

@deckardcanine - I just checked to see if the Hanukkah pentagrams in the new book are on angel food cakes. They're not. DRAT.


June 21, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJen

I think the lid is just one upside down. Turn that photo around and it is perfectly logical...

Funny. Just what a cake-loving hobbyist writer loves to see on her Bday.:) An oxy"moronic" cake teehee!

wv ogeles. The birthday girl ogeles this cake and giggles profusely. ;p

@deckardcanine, check with Sandra Lee. That's probably the only permutation she hasn't covered yet.

June 21, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterCraig

@Jen, do you mean...? Are we talking something kinda sorta homemade? A certain dreadful curiosity arises. I gotta get that book.

Just bring this to the next church gathering...

June 21, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMicalah

This is probably from the same grocery store that advertised ham for Passover. Siiiiiiigh. And the Wreckorator probably did not get the joke at all.

June 21, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

deckardcanine wins the interwebs!!

craig needs to go sit in the corner for summoning the S.L. when we already have the Devil in attendance. LOL

my wv is nansati which is an anagram for In Satan! cue Twilight Zone theme! (no, no, not the one with Edward)

Lol!! I am guessing that wreckerator either didn't want their job anymore or they feel sprinkles are unholy and needed that crucifix to make sure they didn't fly off and blind helpless customers. My..but that cake does look yummy lol.

For only $7.99 you can bring laughs and/or theological debate to your next church dinner.

This guy at work makes a chocolate nativity scene every year. He puts it out for people to eat but they're mostly afraid to. Also the chocolate's just oK. (I ate a lamb, didn't want to seriously offend anyone by going after the main characters.)
