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? ;)

Creepy Crawly Cakes

Can't we just have normal frosting roses, sprinkles, maybe a spermy-looking bunch of balloons? Even a beanbag-body clown would be ok. I mean, I try to avoid even being in the same room with yukky-looking creatures...do I really have to take a bite out of one with a side of Ben and Jerry's?


This is a Naked Mole Rat. Cousin to the rare Old Navy Sweater-Wearing Mole Rat. This cutie is interesting because he lacks the ability to feel pain.

Yeeeah. I kinda wish I had that trait right about now.


Maybe if we hadn't stored this confection in a grimy cabinet and put a ravioli under the sheets, we could have avoided this infestation, hmm?

And speaking of infestations...


Do you think if you made a cake like this out of Twinkies, it'd be twice as likely to survive a nuclear holocaust? Just wondering.

Hey, ever wonder what you'd get if you crossed a naked mole rat with a roach?

Yeah, me neither.

Still, I bet it'd look something like this:


Kathy, Rebecca A., Lisal F., & Jessica D., these cakes aren't bugging you, are they?

UPDATE: A big thanks to Cristy B., creator of the Naked Mole Rat cake, for being such a good sport and submitting her own cake!

We Are SO Gonna Get In Trouble For This One...

You know when your waiter at a restaurant tells you that you look like somebody really famous, and you're always secretly terrified they're going to say it's Gary Busey or a "heftier" version of Macauley Culkin?

Or is that just me?

Well, we got this awesome Batman cake in a while ago, and I couldn't for the life of me figure out who it reminded me of. Here, see if it rings any bells for you...

Let's see, strong chin, luscious full lips, surgically enhanced cheek bones...Who could it be?

Oh, wait, now I remember.

This lady:

Remember to use your inside voices when you screech in terror, mmkay, class? Inside voices. That's better. Now. See the resemblance? No?

[clickety-click, mouse, mouse, click] (that's the sound of mad-Photoshop-skills at work)

Ok, how 'bout now?

See? Just like the cake.
Only, you know, with a side of eye-clawing terror.


Enjoy it while you can, Cewest; I figure we have approximately 4 minutes before someone tries to sue us.

Note: The woman pictured is the infamous "Cat Woman." She has had extensive plastic surgery, and enjoys being seen and photographed in public like any other celebrity. Since she chooses to look this way, we thought including her photo would be more appropriate than, say, Jay Leno's. Since some of you have still found this offensive, however, rest assured that we've nixed all the jokes about Owen Wilson's nose in future posts.
