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? ;)

An Eccentric Performance

So. Ye seek humor and frivolity. Follow.

[swinging about dramatically]


Follow ONLY if ye be readers of valor, for the path to LOLZ is guarded by creatures so foul, so cruel that no man yet has laughed at them... and lived!

"'Ewwo, guv'na."


BONES of full fifty men lie strewn about their lair!

Or "carrot pops." Whatever.


So, brave readers, if ye do doubt your courage, or your strength, come no further, for DEATH awaits you all with nasty, big, pointy teeth.

Well, teeth, anyway.


You dare laugh? Foolish mortals, this is no ordinary rabbit!

That's the most foul, cruel, and bad-tempered rodent you ever set eyes on!


This one's got a vicious streak a mile wide; it's a killer!

And also on sale! HEYO!


And that one will snap your spine as soon as look at you!

Not to mention get you really sticky.


I'm warning you! They've got huge, sharp-- eh-- they can leap about-- um -- just look at those eyebrows!

"Hand over the Trix and nobody gets hurt."


Oh, it's just a harmless little bunny, is it? Piece of cake, eh? Well, don't say I didn't warn you!

"Who wants to nibble our pastrami ears?!"




Hey Eric C., Jennifer D., Katie C., Mackenzie S., Lisa B., Byron K., Renee M., & Maureen P., somebody fetch the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch, stat.

Number 6 looks like a king cake hiding behind a plastic rodent mask!
Run away, indeed.

Bunny looks like he had a fun night. Had to get all those eggs ready SOMEHOW

But are they AFRICAN bunnies or EUROPEAN bunnies?? Surely that makes a difference in their wreckiness.

Oh, and what is your favorite color? *Blue. No...*

You know, if all the posts are awesome all the time, you will simply wear us out. * sides..*

Jen, I just got emailed an offer for a $1 humor ebook for my Kindle...and CakeWrecks (the original) was on there!! However, I said to myself, I'm not paying as little as a dollar for that awesome book; Jen deserves way better than that!!

Also, this was a fantastic Holy Grail post. Well done. Wreck on!

I only have one thing to say...but unfortunately someone already said they soiled their armor. But I shall live, 'tis but a scratch!

So, now we know what a white rabbit and "Angry Birds" offspring would like....and that 1st, in my opinion, one has a "Little Piggy" identity crises going on

I see your Holy Grail theme, and I raise you a Anya belting out "Bunnies, bunnies it must be bunnies!" Because that's what I kept hearing.

The way my Google Reader is set up, Cake Wrecks is one of the first feeds I read each day. A few feeds later, I come across this: Bunny Bread on Craftzine

Now that's how you do bunny-shaped bread correctly! Maybe?

Nothing short of an exorcism will get rid of those cakes lol. Man how I love Holy Grail. I am going to have to watch it after Easter. As for the wreckerators I think throwing a killer rabbit at them just might help them make better rabbit cakes..or be highly amusing either way.

************Bahahaha, snort, snicker, hiccup!****** Then after I went about my usual business of loading the dishwasher I saw out of the corner of my eye a movement that sent me into the Holy SH*T IT'S A BUNNY AND IT'S GONNA GET ME!!!!!!!!!!!! (OR maybe I forgot to take my Zoloft today.......) [turns out my sweet, not so gentle pug Winnifred was looking at me with her 'i gotta pee' tone of voice]

The people fussing about rodents v. lagomorphs are not getting the Monty Python reference. And I quote:
Tim: There he is!
King Arthur: Where?
Tim: There!
King Arthur: What? Behind the rabbit?
Tim: It *is* the rabbit!
King Arthur: You silly sod!
Tim: What?
King Arthur: You got us all worked up!
Tim: Well, that's no ordinary rabbit.
King Arthur: Ohh.
Tim: That's the most foul, cruel, and bad-tempered rodent you ever set eyes on!
Sir Robin: You t*t! I soiled my armor I was so scared!
Tim: Look, that rabbit's got a vicious streak a mile wide! It's a killer!
Sir Galahad: Get stuffed!
Tim: He'll do you up a treat, mate.
Sir Galahad: Oh, yeah?
Sir Robin: You manky Scots git!
Tim: I'm warning you!
Sir Robin: What's he do? Nibble your bum?
Tim: He's got huge, sharp... er... He can leap about. Look at the bones!
King Arthur: Go on, Bors. Chop his head off!
Sir Bors: Right! Silly little bleeder. One rabbit stew comin' right up!

Is that third one made of cheese??? And the next question would be... WHY?

April 7, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterMoe

Great post. Just remember, rabbits are not rodents, technically they are Lagomorphs.

I can't believe I just ruined my first comment with that point. Please forgive me, it must be sleep deprivation (we have a 10 day old son).

I heart you.

That is all.

If you can't find the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch, a bottle of Chambord makes a nice replacement. At least from a distance. Your enemies will never be able to tell the difference!

I dub #6 "The Money Shot."

April 9, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterInaya

Not actually cake.
Now classified as g√Ęteau.
Otherwise, funny.

That last picture is worth a few nigtmares! Oh...just wow.

April 10, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterAmanda

I have chills. Not the good kind....

April 10, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterJoanna

Haha! I knew you'd make a Monty Python joke!
