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? ;)

Fall Fumbles

(Once again you guys are outdoing yourselves with the Wrecky holiday submissions. So, prepare for some marathon Thanksgiving posts from now 'til T-day!)


It's a football! It's a turkey! It's a...a...stitched up frankencake with pom-poms! And hey, who needs decorating skills when you can just dump the dollar store's clearance bin in with the cake, right, Carol G.?


Apparently Dudley Do Right wishes us all a happy Thanksgiving. Jacquelyn G., do you suppose the decorator actually used shrimp for those ears, or just made it look that way?

"Pumpkins", Lynz B.? You sure those aren't supposed to be melons? (Bah dum bump!)


Kathryn M found this guy. He's supposed to be a scarecrow, so, you know, props to the decorator for really nailing the "scare" part. I know I'm frightened. I mean, it looks like a wookie in a clown suit. A wookie who shaved his face and then used too much self-tanner, I mean.

Of course, scarecrows are pretty complicated to make. So how about a nice candy-corn shaped cookie? Nothing easier than that, right?


Oh come on! Are you kidding me?!?

Never mind, Mary D., just...just never mind.

Sunday Sweets: Let's Talk Turkey

Debbie of Debbie Does Cakes was kind enough to share some Turkey love with us today. Check it out:

I love this guy. Not only is he gorgeously made, he's a comic gem. I mean, those bug-eyes are just crying out for a thought bubble, don't you think? So Debbie, for next time, here are some options for ya:

1) "Uh, guys? I was told this was more of a stag party..."
2) "Whoah, let's all just relax now, and how's about you put that knife down, eh?"
3) [on seeing the *other* turkey] "Mom?"

Ok, guys, your thoughts?
