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? ;)

What The H?

You guys, Halloween is coming!

Aw, don't be like that. Halloween is supposed to make you happy!


Not that happy.


I mean the kind of happy with spiders, specters, and spooks!

 Plus crying yellow earthworms!

 (How's that for a bait & switch?)


 Hang on; I think this is a spider:

The extra little legs drawn on the side were the give-away.


Oh! And mummies! Can't forget the mummies!

No matter how hard we try. 

 (You will never look at a foam clown nose the same.)


Not to mention a Halloween theme is PERFECT for first birthdays:

Because nothing celebrates the first year of life better than a bunch of tiny gravestones. Rest in peace, baby. 


And finally, zombies are the breakout stars this year, so you can expect to see lots of these:

Zombie Football Helmets.

"All the fun of vomiting Cookie Monster with none of the creativity!"


(The sad thing is it still looks more like a football helmet than the cakes that are supposed to.)

Return of the Corpse Bride

At first I thought this was a zombie cake made for Halloween, so imagine my delighted horror when I realized... it's a wedding cake.

Raise your hand if you need a manicure!

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go scrub my fingernails until these facial tics go away. [twitch]


Thanks for the hand out, Jennifer M.
