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? ;)

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.


Cookie Monster's Dirty Little Secret 

When you desperately hope they played "Jumping Jack Flash" at the reception:


And that they're just talking about driving here:

(It's as if millions of parents suddenly cried out in terror, "NoooOOOOOo!")


But mostly I just really, REALLY hope that's not a nipple:



Thanks to Emily D., Angela N. & Camirae P., who tells me that IS a nipple, but if so, WHY IS IT THERE??
