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? ;)

Put The Coffee DOWN

It's not often that a baker submits on of his/her own creations for us to pick on. But Maayan, who both bakes and documents funny food horrors, did just that.

The following diet-assisting monstrosity was actually ordered by a customer. And what is it?

Go ahead, guess. I'll wait...

Spaghetti with tomato-y cream sauce?

An ear?

A cherry, Cheez-Whiz and regurgitation torte?

Nope, nope and nope! Give up?

It's a fetus-with-an-iPod pie!

Uh, I guess fetus cookies would have been going too far?

Thanks to Maayan Z. for being such a great sport!
