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: Ten 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.


Thanks to Laura A., Anony M., Erica O., Tanya S., Isabella, Dawn M., Sarah M., Nicki R., Sarah U., & Shelley T. for all the pro-creations.

The last one is so shiny and "nerggghhhh" that it looks like a redheaded Giger Alien thingee.

Ok, let me clear something up - the first cake IS NOT PROFESSIONAL. It was a joke cake for - get this - a baby shower. A friend decorated the cake with the uterus herself. I was there.

Omg. The follicular cysts in the right ovary of the last one. Total PCOS "string-of-pearls" formation. Gaaah. Shiny, cysty, cakey nightmares for all time.

I have lurked here for many a year and have never ever ever thought it necessary to comment.
What in the heck are these cakes supposed to represent?
Who thought this was a good idea?
And why are there so many different people who thought this was a good idea?
This goes right in there with the "babies being pushed out" cakes.

I dunno.
This answers for me the question, "Was the honey booboo thing a fluke?"
Apparently not.
Tastelessness, walmartians, and people who make cakes like this must actually exist in this universe, not in some parallel universe created by hollyweird.

I am sad.
Society has indeed taken a giant nosedive.

Jen, I'm having real trouble "coming down" from the laugh-fest! It was just reaching a crescendo when you threw in "Ovary funny", and I totally lost it! And I love your comment on the Lola cake, which, after seeing all the others, I have started to like. Thanks much for the great laughs as I try to catch up with years (yes, I said "years") of CW posts.
