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? ;)

Look, I'm not going to say I'm proud of what I first saw when I looked at this cake, butt...

Ok, I'm a little proud.

Also, dad's ball seems a little low.

Speaking of which, go ahead: tell me this placement wasn't intentional:

And maybe I'm out in left field here, but don't you usually tend to see this kind of thing around third base?

Still, at least that baker has actually seen a baseball bat before. This one seems to have confused it with some kind of joystick:

And in related news, something something "some kind of joystick."

See? These jokes practically write themselves.

Ah. I see the force is strong with this one:

Show off.

Also, is that a Chef's hat, or a pile of poo? 'Cuz I can't make heads or tails of it.

And finally, men, do you experience a burning sensation when you go? bat, I mean? Go to bat?

Thanks to Adria P., Amy U., Stephanie D., A. R., Denise H., and V.D. for that last joke.

I just love the first cake. How could the "artist" totally not see this? And the last one...i don't want to think about it. Looks like a slug that got in the wrong,wrong places.

And on another note, happy Quebec day! ^^ (national day here, so at least i will have something to do to "try" to forget about that last horror.)

"How does the bakery not say, "Gee... pretty much looks like a _______. Let's start over."??"

Your guess is as good as the next!
Here--some possibly-possible reasons for a your random, anonymous bakery not doing that:

1. They actually believe that they did a great job.
2. They actually believe that they did a great job, AND are even a bit worried that they're not charging ENOUGH, to boot.
3. They shrug to themselves, muttering, "I get paid minimum wage...I should give a rat's ass what it looks like."
4. They made it look pretty much like a "________" ON PURPOSE, have a camera handy and plan on sending it to some funny blog or something...'cause, you know...they're out there and stuff...

#1 That's what dad gets for wearing his pants too short. Again.

#2 Sorry, all I can think is "ouch". I mean, the "bat" is so big, it looks like the green is indented a bit under the tip.

#3 is that a ball, or is that bat really happy with that glove? And what's Nick's friend(s) really saying about his hobbies?

#4 a brown armchair? I guess that's one kind of... fan.

#5 Ok, that's so bad, it's beyond commenting on.

And "dicktionary", penicillin, impotent, and pointing the bat up... . Yup, further proof that humour (CW) attracks humour (the fans)!

That last one... suggestively shaped shiny poo on moldy cake with little pink maggo....

If you're going to place candles on a baseball-themed cake such as the last one, wouldn't it make more sense to put a few on the bases instead of cramming several into the..."bat"?

WV: giessol
"You wanna stick these candles into this here poop log?" "Yup, giessol!"

I don't normally comment on a post more than once, but I showed this post to my husband and after he saw the last cake he started singing "When you're sliding into first, and you hear something burst.. diarrhea!"

Oh, V.D. gave you that last joke? Oy! This one made me chuckle. Good job. :)

June 24, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterKaren

All I can say is ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww on that last one.... That is so so nasty....

June 24, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAmy Ellen

thank goodness those pink things on the last one are candles!! really, I was thinking intestinal worms so the poo image made sense (!) but it also looks like a "disco stick" so that was reeeeaaallly freaking me out.

yes, I understand that's not what should have been freaking me out but that's life in my head.

(now, I have The Gaga and P!ink battling in my head-how much wronger could this post get??)

Anyway, the impotent* thing to remember is:

It really is just cake!
Close your eyes, make a wish, pucker up and blow. =^~.-^=


Thank you for this. I was laughing sooo hard! And the first one just cracked me up. Poor cake artist. They tried so hard.

and my wv: vibrates. bahahahahaha!

I swear that those bakers have to be doing that on purpose.

And I really wish I could learn how to un-see things. I really, really do.

Tears! LOL!

The last cake reminds me of a song...all together now!

When you're running into first
And you feel you're gonna burst

When you're sliding into third
and you feel a juicy -----

When you're running down to home
and your pants are filled with foam... get the idea

Yep, the Blues Clues chair was probably supposed to be a glove. Took me a minute to figure it out, though. This website always cracks me up. Is this the same place that had the photos of cakes that were ordered and expected, followed by what was actually received? Those were great!

I think that 3rd one was supposed to say "Happy Birthday Dick"


April 1, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterLivi A.

Is it possible that the 'joy stick' is supposed to be a T-ball stand? The cake should have been rotated 90 degrees, if that is the case.

The 2nd One looks like a beer bottle or a squid ward face
