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? ;)

E.T. is back...

and he is piiiiissed.


Now, I love pop-culture references from old 80's movies as much as the next girl, ok? Make a crack about R.O.U.S.'s or use the line, "Back off, man; I'm a scientist." and I will love you forever. That said, turning E.T. - whose popularity peaked 25 years ago - into a ticked-off looking mummy and then marketing him to the under-12 set might be a bit too obscure for today's youth. Heck, without the "phone home" reference, I doubt any adult would get it. So props to the decorator for trying to keep the dream alive, but maybe next time he or she should make it a little more obvious.

Josh W., don't you have a phone call to make?

Boobs!

Check out what they're selling over in merry ol' Ireland:


And here I thought Ireland was just a country of rainbows, shamrocks, and lilting-voiced innocents frolicking through the fields. You know, because like every good American I make it a point to base all of my stereotypes on popular breakfast cereals.

This is one instance where the packaging hugely overshadows the cake itself. I especially like the font choice: it's like they were going for "suggestive" and ended up at "crazy deformity" instead. And despite the "busty" claim, this is actually a pretty tame cake. Here submitter Rachel S. and friends set up a comparison shot:


Well, Cute Overload has Cats 'n' Racks: I guess now we have Cakes 'n' Racks. (And no, you may not start sending in candidates for the new category, ladies, no matter how clever you think your new cupcake holder is. We have standards here, doncha know.)
