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? ;)

Shoo, Horns!

Are you tired of buying a special dessert every Thanksgiving, only to have your friends and family snarf it all down before you get a piece?

Then this year, why not buy:


The Cornucrapia
Leftovers Guranteed!™

That's right, your local bakers have twisted the traditional "Horn of Plenty" into something MUCH less appetizing! Just choose from any of these exciting designs!

The Black Hole


The Stinky Slinky


The Mud Slide


The Twirly Turd

The Purge


The Litter of Runts


And that relentless best seller:

The Miserable Vomitous Mass

(or Humperdink, for short.)

Find yours at a local wreckery today!

Thanks to Kelly G., Sarah, Joanna C., Roni F., Jesse, Maureen S., and Dan W. for horning in on our Thanksgiving parade.

(sigh) they're chocolate frosting. I'd eat them.

at least you get $2 off the Black Hole if you have the "price card." It does, however, say "per pack" so it may be that there's actually more than one and you need to buy a few together?

No matter the day I have had, I can always count on Cake Wrecks to get me laughing. Thank you, thank you for your time, wit, and Princess Bride references. You make the world a better place.

@Pamlin - I just laughed so hard I scared the cat. Unfortunately she was in my lap at the time. The claw marks should heal soon :-)

Has anyone else noticed that the black hole has started to suck in the icing from the perimeter of the cookie?

How long before the cookie collapses in on itself?

What if you buy it and take it to Grandma's house and innocently set it on the dessert table? The next thing you know you look up to find the pumpkin pie elongating as it orbits the black hole cookie. You stare in horror as the whipped cream is sucked past the event horizon, and you know it's too late to save your beloved dessert!

A giant cookie that's at least 60% frosting is hazardous enough without the threat of total pie annihilation! Won't someone please think of the pies children?!

Well I know now to never ever get one of those cakes lol. Not worth the chocolate frosting if it looks like poo. Almost makes me wish I didn't like chocolate..ALMOST. But these wreckerators will never destroy my love for chocolate no matter what manner of poo shapes that frosting ends up in..they can't possibly keep this up forever..can they?

It's not often that cakes, however badly put together, actually make me feel nauseous but, faced with the barrage of pooh looky-likeys on here today - yep. Going for a lie down now...

@ Arlene ~ How long has CW been around? I don't see it ending any time soon...

The Black Hole is even sucking in the border deco.

@DonnaB you are freakin' awesome

@ Janna Shai Hulud with reason to be shy? Answering the casting call for "Dung Messiah"?

November 27, 2012 | Unregistered Commenterrocketride

I was gonna say 'Kudos!" to DonnaB, but Barbara Anne beat me to it!! The black hole scenario does sound strangely familiar, though, like maybe something out of a StarGate SG-1 episode?! Naaahh! ;-)

And what everybody else said to/about Sharyn & SuBee & mel - ditto from me!! :-)

Hey, where's zoomom?!

@ Janna

Definitely Shai-Hulud. Really, what else could it be? Yep, it's "Sammy the Singing* Sandworm", all the way from Arrakis for one night only!

* Or at least yawning, in the Technicolor (tm) sense of the word.

What? Those are cornucopias? I thought they were:
1- I dont know, but its barfing.
2- what happens when you chew all your food except your fruit.
3- a pile of deer crud next to a pile of food.
4- a bichrome tornado.
5- Ms. Preschoolcraft fell in love with Mr. Fivedozeneyeballs.
6- a fruit-covered log.
7- a diet aid. Or perhaps another love child... this time Ms. Barf and Mr. Diarrhea. Same thing.

"Humperdinck" has a C.
Otherwise, hilarious.
(Don't mind me; I'm just a little OCD about referential humour...)
