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? ;)

Best. Black Friday Cake. EVER.

Rest in peace, "Thanks Giving."

Now outta my way, gramps, I NEED THAT COMBINATION OUTDOOR GRILLING SPEAKER AND MASSAGE PILLOW.

 

Thanks to Kristin D., who didn't feel like coffin up the dough for this wreck - and I can't say that I blame her.

Whiskey. Turkey. Foxtrot.

Think all those turkey cakes are bad?

Well, they are.

But these are worse:

1. Mildly amusing idea, SUPER creepy execution:

No. Just... no.

 

2. "Jack Skellington and the Politically-Incorrect Window Display of Holiday Awkwardness."

With bonus charred turkey flying out of a pumpkin.

 

3. Evil Zombie Pilgrim:

Yeesh, this reminds me of the bad guy in Disney's Hunchback of Notre Dame. Whatever happened to all the cute little pilgrims?

Oh, wait, here they come!

 

4. Pilgrims in straitjackets:

You know, I'm starting to think bakers REALLY don't like these guys.

 

5. Thanksgiving Bachelorette Party:

"Hey, bebeh, do you prefer light meat, or dark?" [eyebrow waggle]

 

6. "Heeeeeeere's JOHNNY!"

Admit it: you'd order a dozen of these in a heartbeat, just to see your in-laws' reactions.

 

Actually, Jeannie tells me she HAD to buy this because her cell phone camera wasn't working - and this obviously needed to be documented for posterity. POSTERITY THANKS YOU, JEANNIE.

 

Posterity also thanks Megan L., Christie C., Jamie N., Rob, & Laurie R. for the excellent wreckporting.
