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 Top Ten Football Cake Fumbles 

It's about that time of year again, guys! 

You know, the time for lots of these: 

Yep, sections of train track on small hills. Choo choo!!


No, wait, I'm sorry, I meant the time for spinal cords in shallow graves:

And speaking of graves...


I bet this wreckerator is a real casket case.


Sometimes after a long hard day, you just want a cake that's had the ever-loving crap beaten out of it, know what I mean?

Booyah. Wish = granted.


Question: Does this look like a pair of lips painted like a basketball, or will 28 of you be too distracted wondering what "WILL 28" means to notice?



I call this next one "The Thing That Looks Like A Triangular Hamburger Bun."

It's a literal work.


And this, "The Plague O'er The Land."

Step 1: Bring to a boil

Step 2: Serve cold to enemies and/or the neighbor's kids


"The Invisible Ball"

See what I did there?


"My Ugly Crazy Lumps"

 Because nothing expresses your ardent fandom quite like a hearty, "GO TEAM." (Hey bakers, if I spring for the sheet cake do you think I could get, "THE PLAYERS CURRENTLY PLAYING ARE MY FAVORITES IN ALL OF [INSERT SPORT HERE]"?)

(PS. Behold the awesomeness that is my punctuation ending that last sentence. BEHOLD IT.)


 And finally, "The Pig Skin Chia Pet."

"ChaChaCha I am so not eating that."

I guess 28-year-old Will is a football fan?

Andrea, that was very brave of you, thanks. I think I know the answer to the riddle, but am afraid to speak the name aloud, so I will have to sit in my private safe place, twirling my hair around my finger until I fall asleep.

Cake #6, I would happily fall into face-first. Look at all the icing on it.

The hamburger bun one looks more like a Cornish Pasty, if you ignore the reflection bit.

Barbara Anne, the bunker's gym / beer garden sounds divine, in a Dante-esque sort of way. Of late, my preferred method of ingress had involved working out exactly how improbable it is that I can get in, then relaying that information to a rather strange computer who always seems to be preoccupied with making tea. Which approach, as I think of it, explains nicely the recent bunker additions. The new door is much simpler and avoids certain...risks inherent in my previous approach.

No need to worry, Von -- Theardare is mostly harmless.

Oh those are bad. That plague/poo one was the worst though. LOL
