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? ;)

Yes, Bakers, You CAN Be Creepy!!

Here's something I never understand: every Halloween, the one time when bakeries are SUPPOSED to make scary and/or disturbing cakes, suddenly THIS is their idea of creepy:

Whoa. Hide your kids.


Meanwhile, every OTHER time of the year, bakeries are doing this:


And this:


And this:

(PLEASE tell me there are some Supernatural fans out there seeing what I'm seeing.)


Then there's Christmas:


And Easter:


And the Fourth of July:


And Easter:


And Valentine's Day:


And also Easter...

Seriously. What is it with Easter?!


Look, bakers, clearly you have the ability to make cakes creepy; the trick is to just not aim for it.

That's right: stop trying to scare us altogether.

And instead, just make us a niiiice clown cake.

Open Belly, Insert Foot

Friends, countrypersons, CCC-makers (ptooie!):

I've tried to be reasonable.

I've tried to show you the appetite-killing effects of edible mommy bodies:

I've tried to show you the cannibalistic undertones, the disturbing ramifications, and the flat-out creepiness of neck stumps and booby slices.

I've even shared with you the horror stories of raspberry fillings, plastic baked-in babies, and mock C-sections!

All to no avail.

And now - NOW - bakers are adding an homage to the scariest scene in Ghostbusters. Because that scene with the demon dogs pressing their faces through the door? [sing-song] A-DOR-ABLE!



Sure, they might have started out small...

"Aw, lookit da cutesy-wootsy lil' foot sticking out! Haha! So sweet!"


...but it wasn't long before bakers were pushing the boundaries of what anyone could stomach.


(Also, ow.)


And because more is ALWAYS better...

"Leeeet ussss ooooouuuut!!" wasn't long before the laws of physics went completely out the window:

Sweet mercy, woman, TELL ME you're getting an epidural.


So I ask you, fellow citizens, are we to stand for this? Or will we put our foot down, stop toeing the line, and kick belly cakes to the curb once and for all?!

Hey, wait a second. You just saved these photos to your "inspiration" folder, didn't you, bakers? YOU'RE NOT EVEN LISTENING TO ME, are you??

Oh, fine. Just send me photos when you're done, and we'll call it even.


Thanks to Amy U., Elizabeth M., Alanna E., Amanda R., Mary V., & Holly T. for today's belly laughs.
