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 8 Cruelest Cakes To Serve Someone With A Hangover

And now, in keeping with our yearly Cake Wrecks tradition:

The 8 Cruelest Cakes To Serve Someone With A Hangover

(Best accompanied with cymbal crashes, gum-snapping, and LOTS of cheerful whistling.)

 

1) This boil-covered Bundt cake:

Don't prepare them or anything. Just slap a slice of that shiny sucker down on your favorite china plate, and stand back.

 

2) Fake Fish N' Chips with lumpy mashed... peas?

 

3) What I hope is fake fish on real cake:

You must admit, they really nailed that decaying, desiccated look.

Which is a skill set you don't get too often in bakeries...

 

4) The most realistic edible sunburn I've ever seen:

Seriously, I've been saving this one up for you guys. Don't you just want to rub some Aloe Vera on it?

 

5) The Dribble Which Must Not Be Named:

No, no, don't tell us what it is. PLEASE.

 

6) Cupcakes with REAL tortilla chips jammed under all the icing:

The chips are there in case the whole "vomit on a plate" aesthetic doesn't already do you in.

 

7) An Edible Ashtray:

Do you think they add liquid smoke to the cake batter? Because that would be kinda genius, in a really disgusting sort of way.

 

And finally, if all else fails, there's always the new trend over in Japan:

8) Raw. Meat. Cakes:

One more:

And just like that, your hung over friend/enemy is well on his/her way to recovery!

These Two Cakes Make The Perfect New Year's Eve Poem

Sometimes a serendipitous moment occurs in the Cake Wrecks archives - and this one was too perfect not to share.

So without further ado...

 

AN IMPORTANT PSA FROM CAKE WRECKS:

 

Happy New Year's Eve, minions.

 

And hey, keep it OUT of your pants, "Diame." [warning glare]

 

Thanks to Dianne M., Sarah F., & Megan W. for the old slang rhyme.
