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? ;)

Spring DOOM!!! 

This spring, terror has a new name:



With everything you've come to expect from a low budget, Easter-themed horror movie! 


Idiotic, overly testosterone-laden frat boys:


  "There's old blood and creepy hooks hanging everywhere in this abandoned house that's miles from anywhere - so let's check out the basement! Shyah!"


Gratuitous nudity:


"OMG Jill, we should go skinny dipping!"


That one guy with common sense who always dies at the beginning:

"Guys, this is a really bad idea. Why don't we just get in the car and leave? It's right over there! Jill, put your clothes back on! Well, I'm leavinaaaaauuuuuugggghhhhh!!!!"


Those freaky long-limbed creatures that crawl on ceilings:

NOPE. Nope. Nope-nope-nope-nope!


And of course, creepy two-headed chicks:

 "Come play with us.

"We'll play ... chicken."


So this Easter, hop on over ... 






Thanks to Geneva W., Kathleen L., John B., Michelle L., Alyssa T., Anne B., & Lisa F. for the basket case ... OF HORROR. 

(Ok, so today wasn't the best pun day. WHAT.)

#5 Jar-Jar Cottontail?

@ Sharyn
Rabbits, hares, etc. are members of the Order Lagomorpha (which is closely related to the order Rodentia). The two orders differ mainly in their teeth. Lagmorphs have small teeth next to their big incisors, which rodents lack.

Let us hope that Haiku Joy was not in the Bunker during the reset.

I read your posts sometimes, though not as frequently as I 'd like because I am a PhD student who should be working on my dissertation and not surfing the web in work avoidance. When I do visit, though, I usually laugh until the tears start rolling, which is a good thing. Anyway, I saw this pic on Facebook today and I had to share. I don't know if perhaps you've already seen or shared this one, but obviously it made me think of you and your blog. I particularly like the caption for this one. Poor kid!

The ceiling-crawler's face on #5 is...actually kinda cute. Like a Muppet with an unfortunately horrifying body.

"Who's a cute widdle ceiling-crawling poo Muppet? You are! You are!"

Part of me says, "yay, KarateLady's pic made it in" and the other part says, "ewwwwwwww."

I like how Cake 4 (Common Sense Guy) is black. The black dude ALWAYS dies first! What is with that?!
Speaking of what is with things... what in GOD'S name is Cake 5?! I will be seeing that in my dreams tonight. *shudder*

I think the last cakes are supposed to look like Mexican-style pinatas.... but they're still horribly disturbing to look at. O_O
