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? ;)

WTH!? that is supposed to be a baby?! I thought it was a woman pushing.

March 27, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterDeanna

looks like the child of the lollipop guild in wizard of oz

What exactly is that "baby" laying on?? It looks like the grill from my bar-b-que! And those hands? Creepy.

March 27, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterBelle T

THAT is an oompah loompah people!

March 27, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterCasey

Don't laugh on 12/21 this vision will come true - the Mayans were right - Snooki's son will be the end of us all.

Why do I feel this is what baby Hobbits look like.

March 27, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterTed C

Sometimes I wish we could "like" other people's posts here. There are a lot of good ones today.

That being said, the baby troll/Curly/munchkin cake is NOT a good one. I really want the backstory on this one.

March 27, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterGinger

I can't stop laughing, not only does the baby have stubble, ginormous hands and hobbit feet. It is also sleeping on a baking tray....

Just remember not to compensate Little Curly/Bilbo/Troll/Thing, Jr. for his work with money, or you're likely to run afoul of local child labor statutes.

Oh jeebus! Let the nightmares begin.

March 27, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterMarni

OH MY!!!! That pretty much is all I have to say!

March 27, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterAimee S

Need. Brain bleach. Need it.

March 27, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterJenny

That. Was. So. Funny.

I almost fell off my chair laughing! This is the best wreck yet!

March 27, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterPatti

Wow! That baby is BREATHTAKING! (Any other Seinfeld fans out there?!)

Seriously...WHY? And I have to ask...how much did it cost?

March 27, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterJess

Spot on, Jen!

March 27, 2012 | Unregistered Commenterlisadh524

It looks kind of like an Oompa Loompa mated with a Munchkin!

March 27, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterMegan

It looks like it's on some kind of broiler pan - could it be Hansel and Gretel's unfortunate baby brother?

March 27, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterSuzanne

AAAAAAAAAHHHHH!! KILL IT! KILL IT WITH FIRE! D:

March 27, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterAllie

Oh my goodness... can't.. stop.. laughing...

(Sunshine Mary impersonation)
Hey, at least it isn't marzipan or blue!

That's all I've got; that thing is hideous!

March 27, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterScaperMama

I refuse to believe that that is supposed to be a baby. It is clearly a severely foreshortened Curly. No other explanation is possible.

March 27, 2012 | Unregistered Commentergreta

Sad thing is, it's actually quite well-done. Of course that is the manliest-looking baby I've ever seen! What was happening in the wreckerators head to make this remotely ok??

March 27, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterTiffany

I hate it when I come here and for a moment, until my brain coughs up the idea " is cake?", I think I'm at Regretsy.

March 27, 2012 | Unregistered Commentergobbler

I'm shocked! No one has yet commented on the poo coming from Chucky's head! Chucky looks like he needs to poo and its coming from his brain? hmmm.. maybe that makes a bit too much sense. Stephen King would be proud.

March 27, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterLeah

I've already lost my voice due to this nasty virus, so I just screamed really loudly in my head.

What kind of sick person wants to eat something that looks like a baby, anyway?

March 27, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterMay

I think that a picture of my facial expression the moment I saw that... thing would be better than anything I could post here......

March 27, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterLalis

ok Haiku's comment "dimpled cakefist of doom" made me spit my drink all over my keyboard

March 27, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterDegera

Moe! Larry! The cheese! Woop-woop-woop-woop!

March 27, 2012 | Unregistered Commenteryellow pinky

Wow.
Bad.
I love cake but I couldn't eat that, er, thing.

March 27, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterFM

Wasn't "The Sum of All Fears" a disaster movie starring Ben Affleck in a story about a gee-normous bomb that would destroy Earth? Well, there it is -
a giant Curly-baby getting ready to make giant poopy cake wrecks all around. Be afraid! Be very afraid!

March 27, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterSara

Nightmare fuel. D:

March 27, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterEmily

DEFINITELY an Oompah Loompah baby! Freakin' fright'ning!

March 27, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterA Nonny Moose

If it was green, it would be a great baby ogre cake.

March 27, 2012 | Unregistered Commenterpikkewyntjie

"Dear God, what is that THING?!?"

(Oh come on, somebody had to.) :P

March 27, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterStephanie

Okay, well yesterdays We'll wil what ever it was sent my already migraned head into an utter orbit. Today, I am not sure what is happening. If someone brought this cake into my presences I wouldn't know whether to laugh or scream. lol

March 27, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterTerrie

Sadly, I actually know a man who looks like that, and his baby was pretty close to the cake baby. Scary and horrible at the same time. Poor kid!

March 27, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterLynn

My thought process:
1. Oh, that's a cute baby...
2. Plus Curly Joe? ....Okay, this should be interes-
3. AUGH!
4. *Scrolling up and down to see that yes, indeed, a very unfortunate wreck has been born.*

March 27, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterDandy

DD, I also always found those Anne Geddes photos creepy, but a very different reason than you do.

Congratulations to whoever found a way to make them even creepier.

March 27, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterNell

Why oh why oh why do I check CW just before bed?!!!!!!

March 27, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterB

Ah hahahahahahah! Can't stop laughing. The cat's giving me funny looks.

March 27, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterKatiMomKat

Thank goodness other people can find the funny in this one cause I got nuthin'. Not a fan of Geddes, stooges or my-god-what-is-that-thing! Me, I'd rather have had a lovely photo of Epcot to look at...

March 27, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterBarbara Anne

If only I could un-see this. If. only.

March 27, 2012 | Unregistered Commenterpearl

What has been seen can't be unseen. Wauuuugh!

March 27, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterPaula Helm Murray

I'm trying to pick my jaw up off my chest.

March 27, 2012 | Unregistered Commenteremmieloves

I came here today looking for frivolity after going to court for (and winning!) a nasty child support lawsuit filed by my ex. Well, I found it! I can't stop laughing at all the great comments! Thanks, everyone for the belly laugh. This will make me giggle for days!

March 27, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterTheresa

Constipated hobbit baby

March 27, 2012 | Unregistered Commentersmb

Why did I mistake that picture of Curly for Rodney Dangerfield? I was about to post "I have no respect for this cake." Not that a baby Rodney Dangerfield cake would be any less frightening...

March 27, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterHeather

Ok, just thought you might like to know that I'm really, really pregnant (like, hopefully any day now) and I laughed so hard that I had a contraction. Not kidding. :0) Thanks. Keep posting stuff like this and I'll recommend you to all my exhausted really pregnant friends.

March 27, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterPreggo Mama

haiku joy and suziq -- best comments! and it would be great to find out the back story on this. . .umm. . .cake monstrosity.

March 27, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterTonia

This is going to kill me. Maybe because I will laugh so hard, I can't breath. Or out of fright. Not sure yet.
