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? ;)

Killer Thrillers (HEEhee!)

[howling wind]
[howling dog]
[howling wind and dog together]
[plus a sprinkling of light rattling chains]

Darkness falls across the land...

Prince Humperdink: SKIP to the end!

Oh. Ok.


The fowl-est stench is in the air...


The FUNK of forty thousand years!

Give or take an eon.

And Grizzly ghouls from EVERY tomb...

Or maybe a Canadian Black Bear, eh?

Are closing seal your DOOM.


And though you fight to stay alive...

"Ha. Ha. Ha. Ha. I'm missin'myarm, and whereismyface?"

Your body starts to SHIVER. timbers!

(Or maybe that's Orlando Bloom. Hm? LADIES?)

For no MERE MORTAL can resist...

Baby Cthulhu!


... David Caruso riding a unicorn under a double rainbow!

The EVIL...

(Oh. Or that)








Is that supposed to be steak?


Thanks to Melinda M., Sarah C., Natasha, Nell H., John M., Rebecca J., Carrie, Robin L., Wolfie, and P. Humperdink for saving us from having to find a cake for "y'alls neighborhood."

disco dude looks like a burn victim.....and the "steak" looks like entrails! YUCK!

I think the double rainbow cake is supposed to be Unicorn Planet which has a very catchy theme song and I dare you not to sing it incessantly!

Seriously I am laughing so hard I am crying at the David (pause) (whisper) Caruso cake. And the comments here are not helping, people!! Lunch hour's almost over and I need to be serious.

Am I the only person that thought the last cake looks suspiciously like a cross-section of the female reproductive system? So creeped out!

Alright... for the first time since discovering this site a year and a half ago that It's a baby? Cthulu cake has inspired me to do some fan submission. Damn that cake is awesome. And should I spawn I would order that cake complete with the question mark.

My aunt & I tried to make a lamb cake a couple years ago like the ones my great-grandmother used to make. Ours was crap, but THAT lamb makes me feel way better about what we made. I just sent her the link to this...haha.

My daughter took one look at the "Saturday Night Fever" cake and said "Ewww...poo in a suit!"

WV:mouro "I can't take any mouro these cakewrecks."

The one that's presumably *meant* to be John Travolta in Saturday Night Fever looks to me almost *exactly* like Scaroth, last of the Jagaroth, from Dr Who "City of Death". If he took up disco. (Which, since it was the 70s, was entirely possible.)

This makes me actually want that cake....

I have never seen a butterflied uterus on a grill before. I am stunned.

Ha ha ha... I thought that grillin' cake was barbecued capsicum (bell pepper) and mushrooms. Actually the way it curls up around the outside makes it more like capsicum than steak. If it is supposed to be steak, then, yuck. -_-

The Caruso/Unicorn/Rainbow cake kicks ass. I want it. Even if I hate cookie cakes.

The evil of the THRILLER, stupid!

The dragon is actually cute even though it looks old. The rest are a bit creepy especially the sheep or whatever that thing is. I would start screaming if I woke up with that standing at the foot of my bed.

August 6, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterBarbara

The "red eyed duck" is probably a Loon... they have red eyes... but it IS pretty poorly made

August 6, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterBailey

You know what's kinda terrifying (not sure if it's scarrier that my mind produced this as I was erading it, or that it exists at all) but the captions above each cake starting with "The fowl-est stench is in the air..." can be strung together and sung to the tune of the chorus of Run This Town by Jay-Z

Gaaawwww!!!! My eyes!! Lamb cake too creepy! Especially THAT lamb cake. <shudders>

August 6, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterStephenie

Ok, that last one looks like something Ted Bundy would order. It looks like poop piles with steak with something else! In a word ....BLECH!

August 7, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterKay-Kay

I appreciate that the sheep cake's been stabbed with a flag like it's the capture of Iwo Jima. I claim this sheep in the name of...

I thought the Cthulhu was an Ood. The family resemblance is striking.

Prince Humperdink - do I sense a Princess Bride reference? PLUS Thriller, you say? Eep that's so epic!!!

August 18, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAs You Wish

I think the dragon cake is cute!

Also, I think the rainbow unicorn is from Harold and Kumar go to White Castle, but the double rainbow thing (not sure if that was in the movie) MAY be from that Double Rainbow All the WAYYYY video from Youtube?

August 18, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterCatherine

The cake with the rainbows... I thought that was Conan o'brien riding the unicorn! Cause that's magical, just like him. :)

The dragon cake is actually quite good. Dragons are supposed to have leathery skin and the details are lovely. The dirt is awesome. Both ears are visible, that leaf-shaped thing on the left is not an ear, it's the right foreleg of the dragon.

The Cthulu cake is cute/funny and would be amusing to me to get.

The lamb cake reminds me of that Baaa video done by Cyriak.

Does anyone else think that the steak looks like a uterus with an IUD in it?

September 22, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMelinda

Hilarious and I'm laughing so hard my stomach hurts. Only thing though- the lamb is not a cake. It's made of solid butter. It's a Polish Easter tradition to bring a butter lamb to church. (you can see an Easter basket decoration next to it) Not to say it's not hysterically funny, just wanted everyone to know it's not a cake...

David Caruso has a saw for a.... uh... Welllllll.....

That 'steak' cake looks like an IUD in a uterus.

Sooo I was just googling "David Caruso on a unicorn" to print out for my coworkers birthday. WHOM, I was speaking to earlier about my "David Caruso riding a unicorn in front of a double rainbow birthday cookie" and I'll be darned if I didn't see it here! I remember sending it to you, but I guess my starting college kept me from seeing it posted in real time. Either way, I'm excited about it. The girls who made that thing were so awesome. I plan to top that design, this year!

I'm thinking the 'steak' looks more like a mummified uterus with an in sitchu IUD. At least that's what I thought.
