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? ;)

Penal Code Violations

NOTE: These cakes may have been meant for children, but the commentary is not. Double entendres ahead!


Do you ever get the feeling that certain bakers are up to business?

I think this monkey lacks a certain...appeal.


I mean, maybe it's just me, but it seems like some of today's wreckerators are getting downright...


(I had two different readers send in two different pictures of this cookie cake, btw. See?)

There's something kind of awesome about having a pair of photos of a pair blobby things.

(Swinging plums? Low riders? Crown jewels? Man tonsils? Pant Potatoes? Scroto Baggins? Ok, internet, you've earned your keep tonight.)

Oh, and I *think* they were going for a heart. Maybe. And before you ask, no, the baker should not be sacked, because this is far too entertaining.


I'm sure some of you may think I'm being unfair. Well, not to worry, wreckerators; you'll get your day in court.

Just no dribbling, please.


There's a certain bakery chain (which shall continue to Remain Nameless) that has a rather curious carrot cake design. It looks like this:

You guys have sent me a bunch of examples, so I can assure you: this really is how the cake comes:

So my question is this: if we all sat around discussing the failings of this particular design, would that make it a circle jerk?



And while I'm being inquisitive, bakers, I've got to ask: do your wrecks ALWAYS have to look like dongs?


Ok, never mind.
Please bring the ding dongs back.

The Best NSFW Wrecks of 2016

We're almost there, minions! We've nearly pried 2016's cold, dead fingers from the doorjambs of history and our lives. This weekend we can finally take a breath, have a drink, and get on with resenting 2017 for all the new terrible stuff that happens.

So as a final, affectionate "screw you" to the year no one will miss, here are my favorite double-take wrecks of 2016.

[whispering] Because they look like naughty bits. AW YEAH.



The longer you look, the dirtier this gets.

(Note the three gun salute - IF you catch my penis-y drift.)


I'm sure she's very proud.


Turns out the butt of every joke is a real peach!


Hey look, it's Doctor WOOHOOOO!

For the record, that's supposed to be a TARDIS, *not* a Sonic Screwdriver.


Remember the Brexit Balls?

Ahh, good times. Good, wrinkly times.


Or how about the time a baker accidentally put some extremely affectionate pandas on a baby shower cake?



I bet we all remember this summer solstice:


Though for me, it's hard (heyo) to come to grips (heyo) with the stiffest competition yet:

The, um... Wangerfly? Dinkerfly? Winged Trouser Snake?

Whatever you call it, he's definitely happy to see you.


So so long, 2016. And hey, 2017? I think I speak for us all when I say:
