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? ;)

I Mustache You A Question

It's the follicle sensation that's sweeping the nation: MUSTACHES!

That's right, bakers: Mustaches make everything friendlier and more approachable and not at all creepy!

"Psst. Hey. You.
"You wanna candy cane?"


Not to mention more appetizing!

(Yes, those are supposed to be 'staches. And the bow is plastic. Because of course it is.)


Mustaches are instantly recognizable:


And always make sense!


And sometimes travel in large packs for protection:

We call this "a flock of Sellecks."


So be proud of your mustaches, my friends - even if your baker's "drawing" is a little more literal than you'd like:

Trust me, Nichole M., you're better off this way.

Dolly Wants To Play

There really is nothing more terrifying than a creepy baby doll. I'm serious. They freaked me out as a kid and still manage to scare the pants off me today, what with their static staring eyes and little outstretched zombie arms and all.

Thankfully, there's a new baking trend that makes these dolls waaaaaay less creepy. (I'm lying; these are terrifying. Proceed with caution.)

Don't... make... eye contact...

All tucked in, and ready to kill.


"Ooh! I'll take that corner piece..."

"...and an arm. But that's it. I'm dieting."


Note: This next cake is not to scale.

Usually the pacifier is much larger.


Is it impolite to suck frosting off the baby's legs?

It is? Poor taste, huh?


Ok, what about its head?


No? Fine. I'll just collect my watermelon and show myself out.


Thanks, Valentina, Liz C., Carrie J., and Dana S.! Ya know, these cakes started out as creepy , but now they're looking kinda DELICIOUS. Mmmm.... babies.... grlslgrsagagagle.....
