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? ;)

The End of the World As We Know It

That's great, it starts with an earthquake, and snakes, a crappy "plane:"


Santa Claus is not afraid:



Eye of a hurricane, listen to your tummy churn



yadda yadda yadda yadda yadda
yadda yadda yadda yaddda yadda
yaddayadda yadda yaddda ..


 (oh, thank goodness)


It's the end of the world as we know it!


It's the end of the world as we know it!


It's the end of the world as we know it!




Thanks to  Maria V., Kayla M., Teya, Lisa C., Debbie N., Jola S., & Frank M., who are off partying like it's 1999.

P.S. Yes, I KNOW the world ends TOMORROW, but since I didn't know what time tomorrow, I couldn't take the chance of missing it, now, could I?

I can't tell you how happy I am to be able to comment again! (I'm blaming the problem on my son who was using my computer to download "game mods" or something. Things still keep popping up on screen and a voice occasionally starts talking to me. I don't think it's just in my head...)
You guys are all cracking me up! ScaperMama, I'm going to have Veggie Tales voices in my head for the rest of the day. Thanks.

Bacon Beiber beef cake???? Eeeeeew! .... I cant even remember the other cakes....

December 20, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterLori

Beef 'n' Bacon Bieber--hilarious, badkarma. That should be trademarked.
The eyes freak me out at least as much as the teeth. I will join the party of those who wonder how it will look when cooked, but also glad I probably won't find out.

December 20, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterMelanie

At least the plane cake looks like they tried.

I kind of like the Santa cupcake cake: "He knows if you've been BAD or good. . . ."

The foot thing looks like it belongs in the next version of "Ripley's Believe It or Not!"

Maybe the makers of the whale cake and the Ryan 666 cake can go to art school together and be study buddies.

And meatloaf/bacon Bieber: For added special effects, this should be thrown on the grill and photographed as the flames dance around his head.

And if we watched while he burned, then we'd be participating in voygrage! I don't think it's a crime between consenting adults.

So glad you're back zoomom! We missed you!

@Andrea ~ Thanks for the HP reference. I'm so glad I put my coffee down first this time!

Regarding the foot cake - and if this isn't relevant, delete it - I used to save used scalpels (something I wouldn't dream of doing today) and use them when I did carving. One evening my X-acto knife rolled across the table and hit my foot. When I bent over to pick it up, I discovered it was standing straight up, and when I removed it, I opened Mt. Vesuvius. My husband was afraid I was going to Catch Something, but I told him I'd been working on a doll house. "The worst that can happen is that I'll break out in shingles."

I'm with TLC. I want to see the Bieferloaf on the grill. That would truly make it the end of the world for the teen girls force to watch it sizzle.

December 20, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterJenn in TN

I just showed my son the Bieber beefcake. Here's what he said: "It's sad to think how many animals had to die to make that thing. Hang on... are those real eyes?!"

December 20, 2012 | Unregistered Commenterzoomom

LOL! It was the first thing that popped into my head this morning, and it wouldn't leave until I wrote it out. (I wonder if this is what it's like in Sharyn's head every day...) I am also glad you're back zoomom! :) Are we missing anyone now?

December 20, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterScaperMama

@Joan, thanks for beating me to the correction. I like BNL, but I LOVE R.E.M. and am actually looking forward to hearing them 28,000,000 times tomorrow.

@ScaperMama- Yes! That was awesome. My only one small quibble? It should have been "It's 666- USTA!"

December 20, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterMelonie

For some reason, that Beef 'n' Bacon Bieber makes me want to create a Beef 'n' Bacon Rusalka... ( Is that wrong?

December 20, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterBadKarma

As horrifying as it is, I'm not sure the Beiber cake counts as a wreck. There is some serious talent behind it!

December 20, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterAli

Santa doesn't CARE if you've been good -- he's had it with you.

@TLC, I like your thinking on Bieber. Oh, you meant the meatloaf. Well, that too. Speaking of which, not even that can put me off meatloaf and bacon, especially together. The baby meatloaf with the bacon diaper came mighty close (especially the 'after' pics), but I rallied, thanks to an early prototype of the unsee machine.

@Lady Anne, humor is always relevant. Besides, it isn't everyone who can make such incisive puns. I take a stab at it now and then, but I'm always concerned that I've missed the point.

@ScaperMama, I don't think Isolder74 has been heard from in a while.

December 20, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterCraig

Do I want to know what the gold impaled foot is standing on?

December 20, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterKristi

@BadKarma ~ As long as you don't call it a King Cake I think you're good. o_O

@Lady Anne ~ Hahahahahahaha<gasp>hahahahahaha
My brother is the king of bad jokes... I'm so telling him your story!

Ban Voyrage!

*Falls over laughing*

I imagine it rhyming with "fanboy rage."

December 20, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterSickleYield

Just in case this is my last comment, it's been nice knowing all of you.

December 20, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterGary

As funny as all the cake are (and they were hilarious) the Prince Humperdinck photo made me laugh harder than anything else!

December 20, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterAshley Penn

I don't know what Voyrage is, but I concur that it should be banned. DOWN WITH VOYRAGE!!!

December 20, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterMy Goodness

ahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha (cough, cough)
bwahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahah (thunk).................................

the Mayans had better not be right- my truck payment was due tomorrow so I sent it in- I could've been partying with that money!! *

*who am I kidding? I don't party.

December 20, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterBarbara Anne

Maybe someone forgot to leave out some milk and cookies for Santa.
What a waste of good meat!

December 20, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterEla

Yikes! The nail-in foot-cake hurt just looking at it. The Justin Beiber cake was a bit strange. Was it supposed to be made out of bacon?

December 20, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterLaura Saxon

Hey, is there room for me in the bunker too? I'll leave the sparring cage outside & bring plenty of MREs...:-)

December 20, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterKarateLady

that bieber cake is, like, nightmare inducing.

December 21, 2012 | Unregistered Commenterarchersangel

Why on earth would someone want Justin Bieber's face made out of meat???? This makes me afraid for whoever it is that wanted it lol. That foot cake has also made me cringe in fear. Will never go without shoes again ..ever!

December 21, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterArlene

Scariest meatloaf I've ever seen. If it starts singing, the world really might end after all...

@Joan, see the FAQ for info on what a CW Epcot is all about. I guess you'll have to try harder if you really want to start one. :p

December 21, 2012 | Unregistered Commenterhyphen8

Laughing my head off at today's post and all the comments!
I must say to Lady Anne: Saving used scalpels! No! No! No! That filled me with more horror than the Vesuvius foot cake! (So thankful you don't do that anymore!)

Oh, and it's the 21th now... So far so good...

December 21, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterTaffy Cake

I hate Justin Bieber too, and I'm only **! I pity the Canadians (Canada rox), but PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE don't let them send him back over to *******!
The *s are cuz I don't wanna give out my location, name or age on the Internet.
PS did the Dead Bieber cake seriously have BACON for hair? I think it does. Ick. Bacon on a CAKE? WHY? Apocalypse 2012

December 21, 2012 | Unregistered Commenterdolphin

6am & still here in the bunker!!! (So far, anyway...) Theadare is lounging on the couch & Andrea is scratching him behind the left ear while Craig converts his UnSee machine into an UnApocalypse machine...just in case. Me, I'm guarding the door - can't fit the *entire* world in here, so Wreckies only - be sure to give the password - "A wreck is a wreck is a wreck. Always."

December 21, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterKarateLady

If we ban voyRage, can we ward off the Apocalypse?

December 21, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterjklGoDuke

My foot is not gold colorered. bit the fooy cake looks like my foot before the toe amp.

December 21, 2012 | Unregistered Commenterseretha

KarateLady, I'm just going to grease your hand with a cupcake and hope that's enough of a bribe to let me in.

December 21, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterHaiku Joy

Karate Lady: LOL

The post-apocalypse world doesn't seem that much different than the other one. Of course, it's still early days...

December 21, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterCraig

Haiku Joy, you don't need no grease; you're a Wrecky! Now, since Mr. Haiku is *not* a regular commentator here, I might just accept that cupcake on his behalf...nom nom (mmm...not bad for a gluten-free vegan cupcake w/agave...Nom nom nom...Must be the chocolate icing...nom nom nom

@Craig - are you sure?! Have you looked it over closely yet? (Where's an aerial camera drone when ya need one...;-)

December 21, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterKarateLady

Thank goodness for bassgirl - I'm not the only geezer who thought the whale was improbable. Besides laughing myself silly, I read CakeWrecks to stay clued in with you young whippersnappers. (Who is this "Bieber," anyway?)

December 21, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterBadNan

Hominy! Bieb's teeth are hominy! How corny!

December 22, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterEmma

Haha! A BEEF-Cake! (Or is it a Bieb-cake?....)

December 23, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterBrandy

The Justin Bieber cake looks like he came straight out of (the original) Evil Dead!

June 14, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterRachel

At first I thought the whale was a blue messed up duck.
