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? ;)

I do want to make one point - while this is a very bad babycake... if the cakewrecker needed to do a cake of the Three Stooges he has a keen eye for Curly Howard's facial traits.

All I can say is.. what in the.. there are just no words for how horrifying this is lol. Well it has turned me off the thought of anything chocolate at the moment. I just hope I can replace that image with something cute say a cute lil bunny. Oh man if I have nightmares I will just send the IT clown for that cake lol.

Is it just me or does the baby look like the 'You are not perfect' guy from Courage the Cowardly Dog?

@Sara, 'The Sum of All Fears' is a book (which I'm currently re-reading, ironically enough) about the ultimate terrorist plot that seeks to destroy not the Earth but 'only' America. The movie is to the book as today's specimen is to babies.

I always knew there would be karmic payback for all the horror Anne Geddes has inflicted upon those poor innocent babies--but I never thought it would come in --allegedly-- edible form....

It's just CAKE. C. A. K. E. Cake. Same as every other cake in the world, you know?

Why do people get all of a sudden all persnickety over a cake that just happens to be cut into the approximate shape of a baby? They'll happily enough eat gingerbread men, cakes shaped like brides, cakes shaped like dogs and cats, etc.

All cakes are equal.
Some more equal than others.
Pass Lenin's jaw, please.

Why why why... does ANYBODY think a baby shaped cake fit for serving? Thats so gross!!! "Would you like a slice of the head? Or would you prefer to nibble his toes?" haaack...
As for this particular ham-fisted, ill-coloured, badly dressed son-of-an-orc, did somebody actually think this was... what? Cute? Funny? Pretty? Jeez, I thought MY brain was twisted!
@ Naomi: no, this is definitely not european folklore... you can blame us for a lot of hideous things (the Spanish Inquisition and the Spice Girls cross my mind), but ritually butchering dwarvish cross-dressers is not among them ;-)

I think that just scared me into never having children.

I think Deanna may have it right- it's not a baby- it's actually a hobbit mother in the midst of childbirth (the head is crowning, I'd say).
