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 flower represents the innocence of youth.

The stump, life's transience.

And the flaming tentacle hands cradling the noodle-limbed fetus broken in half?


Well, those are there just to freak you the f*** out.


Mission accomplished, Erika K.


(Btw, pretty sure those baby legs are going to be tap-dancing their way into my nightmares tonight.)

Yep. Deeeeeeefinitely thought that lopsided was pubic hair at first. And then... really hairy hands, I guess?

If you turn your head to the right, you can tell that the cake was supposed to be a woman with one arm above her belly and one below; the flower on her neck. That would've made a lot more sense. How horrible was the mistake that alien jellyfish made it better?!

I'm thinking those weird tentacly brown poo-bursts are supposed to evoke the mother's hair, because I'm getting a Birth of Venus vibe from the arm placement. Of course, Botticelli didn't give us a Birth of PREGNANT Venus. Thanks for a glimpse into the Hieronymus Bosch-ish mindscape of the podcarrier...

Is this for a Pastafarian birth?

Ay yi yi, what IS that jelly-thumbprint-corn-flake flower on the end? I think her neck and breasts are to the right, so unless the baby is a breach, that's no hoo-hah, that's a corsage. Or a bullet wound.

what the crap?

This is really well done. And so weird I wonder what possessed them, with the fetus and the arm that appears to be severed at the hand, but executed very well.

I think the silver platter gives it a little extra...something. What that something is, I don't know. I'm disturbed.

I think I've figured this one out. It's a cutaway of Doctor HooHa's TARDIS.

Oh, great, more "The Fisherman's Wife's Dream" stuff. <Shudder>

No, Nuke 'em from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.

I don't mind the tentacle hands. The noodle limb fetus is abstract enough that I can deal... but my god, that flower- I could use that flower in medical slides. Looks like a textbook case of genital warts.
