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? ;)

You know how I'm always telling you baby butt cakes could be so much worse?



Things are about to get so much worse.


Heads up!

Wow. This is so stinkin' sexy, I almost didn't even notice the outie belly button.


Because fetus cookies are SO last year:

Goes great with mother's milk.

And lots of screaming.


Proving once again that bakers are taking posts on this blog as inspiration:

I'm torn (ha! Ew.) between asking what that gray pouch thing hanging out is and desperately, desperately, not wanting to know. In fact, know what? Don't tell me. I'm never having kids, so knowing what the inner lining's poop chute or whatever looks like is just one of those things I never need to know. Seriously. Leave me to my blissful ignorance.


And finally, look. I realize that a lot of talent was required to make some of these wrecks - I do! However, no amount of talent will ever make any part of this look yummy to me:


In fact, you could say the amount of talent a baker has when making a placenta has an inverse reaction to how much I want to eat said placenta.


Or, in other words:





Thanks to Matt R., Sarah M., Carl G., & Heather A. for today's gut-busters. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to skip lunch.

Hey, I actually go to a Waldorf Steiner school and none of us look like a pink cheetah cross leopard cross muppet gone wrong, well actually maybe a little like the muppet part but still!!! Anyway I love your blog it gets me to laugh after a close encounter with the blue paint( only Steiner kids will get that), but I still think some of these bakers should enter culinary school, most of these are quite good but DISGUSTING!!!!!!!!!!!

Those are disgusting. I'm sorry, that talent is amazing and completely wasted on those monstrosities!

So, that thing you don't want identified is supposed to be a placenta (you can see it is attached to a cord). It looks nothing like a real placenta, but it does look a lot like a hair ball, or a teratoma.

I'm a mom and a doula and I've handled placentas and I can tell you that in real life, they aren't nearly as disgusting as these cakes make them look lol.

OMG, i'm so glad i had kids before seeing these cakes!! Who in their right mind would ask for something like this and then who could eat them?

AUUUGH. Worst one. I'm done with this website for a few days. SERIOUSLY, SWEET BETTY CROCKER indeed!

The last two cakes look like they may have been for a doctor's office or something along those lines. I certainly don't see an ordinary family being that excited about them.

oh.. my... God.


I think i lost my apetite on the last one.

Someone actually asked me to make a cake like the first photo with the baby popping out of the belly. I thought she was joking at first, but she was serious. The photo even came off of this website because it had the logo still on it. LOL I couldn't believe someone would actually want a cake like that. The rest of these cakes are disgusting.
