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? ;)

Amused Am I


Spelled wrong this cake is, and lonely-looking that raspberry.

Christine A., if 60 miles I did, disappointed in this cake I would be.

Killer Friday the 13th Creations

It's Friday the 13th again, folks, so you know the drill: watch out for broken mirrors, black cats, and homicidal maniacs - especially if you're a hot chick skinny-dipping alone in the woods tonight*. Which reminds me (the homicidal maniac part, I mean, not the hot chick part) here are a few Jason Voorhees goodies for you:

First, Reader John M. whipped these up for his co-workers:

I guess you can never really Wreck a horror cupcake, can you? I mean, the face looks totally freaky, but that's the point. I like how John paired it with all those cheerful sprinkles, too. They say, "Well of course I'm here to kill you, but there's no need to be all gloomy about it!"

And here's a pro's take on the masked murderer:


Creeeeepy. Jane D. found it here, and it's by Antoni and Edward Frys of European Cake Gallery - the same guys who did that amazing Wall-E cake I featured a long time ago. I can't say I'm onboard with a cake that looks like it's about to kill me - I prefer my food happy and non-confrontational, you know? - but I must admit: the irony of slicing into it would be pretty rich.

*Tomorrow night should be fine, though.
