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? ;)

9 Out of 10 Child Psychologists Agree:

These cakes will keep them in business for a loooong time.

"Come closer, children. We only want to wish you a happy birthday. Hehehehe. Thaaat's right, just a littttle closer...."

[insane giggling]

"What? Haven't you ever seen a partially melted M&M before? I may only have a hand stump, but I can still clean your clock, buster. Just ask the last guy."


"Mmmphm eeeph mmife!"

Lisa F., Teresa F., Michelle T., & Nana T., these cakes could be a powerful parenting tool. "Behave, kids, or I'll take you to the bakery again!"

It Came From the Baby Shower...

In my inadvertently controversial baby post a while back, I told bakers that there's really nothing creepier than uber-realistic baby cakes.

Turns out, I may have to amend that a little.


Realistic? No. Creepy as all get-out? Ohhh yes. Little sweet pea here has a face only a stocking-clad bank robber could love - and may, in fact, be related to the giraffe family.

Disaster can also strike when a baker takes a cutesy saying just a little too literally:

Unless this family really is only growing by two baby appendages. Huh. I suppose they could keep them in a jar...

And finally, this one proves that a cake doesn't have to have an edible baby on it to give people the willies:

Yep, when you see something like this you reeeally have to stop and think: Why oh why didn't they stop with the bassinet? It looks like Ashlyn is encased in icing Han Solo style.

Thanks Michelle B. & Julie Anne D.; these babies are reeeally something.
