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? ;)

Just In Time For Mother's Day: 10 Uterus Cakes

This Mother's Day, why not surprise mom with something REALLY surprising?

"It's supposed to be a uterus.



Yep, what could thrill Momther more than an edible version of the thing you broke on your way out? (Er...sorry again about that, Mom.) And since uteri come in so many flavors (ew), here are nine more "inspirational" uterus cakes to really get those creative juices flowing. (Ewwwwsorry.)


Evil jester laughs at your feeble attempts to serve ice cream:

See it? SEE IT??


Hunchbacked Basketball Player Can Dribble No Longer:

Aw. Playa' got served.


Bullwinkle? Is that you?

Ok, while I agree with Bonnie Burton that everything really is better with googly eyes, I still have to draw the line at making letters out of staples. Yowch.


"But, Oh-Cakey-Goddess-of-Most-High-Snark-and-Random-Sprinkles" you're saying, because you're finally using my proper title, "What I REALLY want to see is a tiny cake crawfish inside a cake uterus!"

Well, ok, but only because you asked politely.

What's that? You want two slices? Yeesh. You're so shellfish.


Hey, remember that time when Dobby from Harry Potter tried to stifle a really, really big sneeze?

"Accio CHOOIEE!!"

(I know; that was a real "light bulb moment" for me, too.)


Gosh, all this pink is getting kind of monotonous, don't you think?

Here, this should help:

And that's how everyone learned that Jeannie was actually born a Smurf.


And now, a little "poetry:"

Q: "Why did the lady blush during her sonogram?"

A: "Because she saw a fallopian!"





Some people give their uterus a cute little pet name:

(I'm seeing a cross between a Snork and a Fraggle. Please tell me I'm not the only one.)

Lola? Aw, that's sweet.

I bet Crampy McClots-a-Lot could kick Lola's butt.


And finally, the balloon-animal uterus you never knew you needed:

You know, I never thought I'd like a uterus cake, but I've really taken a shine to this one.

Jen, I'm pretty sure that first photo isn't actually a professional wreck. That cake was at a baby shower I attended, and while the border is professional, I'm almost positive that the hostess decorated the rest of the cake herself. It was, however, inspired by a previous Cake Wrecks cake. If you want, I can link you to her facebook page where the picture appears. Thanks!

@DB: Actually, the purple stuff in the middle is just plain old sprinkles. A friend of mine made it for a baby shower and the purple sprinkles reference the baby's name. And yes, I did say "baby shower". :)

you want TMI? you think you're entitled to TMI? I don't think you can handle TMI (but here goes and you're gonna be real sorry if you keep reading this comment)

Sharyn, I wet myself laughing over "Hey Tubes." I also violently giggle/snorted which is a reeeaaaaallllyyy bad thing when your allergies are acting up. Took a whole lotta Kleenex to clean that mess up.

I had been wondering why anyone thinks that a "uterus cake" is a good idea, but somehow felt compelled to look at all of them anyway. But then being able to read the comments by Sharyn made it worthwhile! (I had "that surgery" years ago---and it NEVER occurred to me, or any of my friends or family to order one of those cakes...!)

Why? Just, why?

Ok, so I missed this post the other day because I was having surgery--on my uterus! Sadly (or perhaps luckily) no one got me any cake.

May 12, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterEllie

Can I just say that seeing these, while having contractions with my first child... the night before Mother's Day, is flipping hilarious and painful all at the same time.

May 12, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterLibby

But but but WHY are there MULTIPLE UTERUS CAKES? *gag* *twitch*

May 14, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterKelli S.

Those are without a doubt the most disgusting things i have ever seen. EVER. And I'm 70 years old. And I've seen some disgusting stuff. But those are THE MOST DISGUSTING THINGS........

And who the hell gets a cake to celebrate getting a hystorectomy!

May 19, 2012 | Unregistered Commenterjenzizcool

Again I ask, don't these cake decorators have any sense? Do they have no pride in their business and work at all? These are appalling.

June 8, 2012 | Unregistered Commenterskmills

Lol I think those cakes are just rad!!! And I know exactly to whom I could buy one of these, a very special friend who has an awesome sense of humor.These cakes can only be given to very special people who love to celebrate womanhood!!! Not to my mom though, as special as she is...
