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? ;)

Wrecky Replay: Halloween "Huh?"s

For today's cakes I have no answers. Only questions.


Uh, what's up with her nose? (Or should I say "down with her nose?")

I like to think it's just a wart, but I get the feeling that it's...not.



Why is the toilet paper angry?


What do colorful sperm have to do with Halloween?
(Granted, "Happy" I could see...)

WHAT in the name of sweet Lassie is that spider doing?!?

I have two questions for Mr. Ghost-with-the-Most here:
First, why did the Wreckerator feel it necessary to include two small chocolate bars and a gummi worm? And second, why, oh why, did s/he put them there and in that order?


Now, I don't want to leave you with all questions, my dear Wreckies, so here's a cake that answers the following:

Q) What do you get if you cross Princess Leia, Dracula, and the Bride of Frankenstein?


A) This:

Paige, Carey H., H.M., Erin, Suzanne U., & Daa, you must admit the resemblance is uncanny.




Warning: Weenie humor ahead! 


Anyone else think the Halloween cakes are getting kinda handsy this year?

No, no. I mean, it seems like the designs are getting a lot...fresher.




For example, some people might think these "pumpkins" represent huge...tracts of land:


Others might think it's a little chilly in here.


Hey, sure, bakers, just stick that candy corn anywhere:

 I'd say the bat was a nice touch, but I think the ghost might disagree.


And when it comes to pumpkin cookies, this bakery offers up some stiff competition:


I'm surprised that they'd erect such a dinky display.


And while that might seem like a hard act to follow, it turns out there's more than one bakery trying to get ahead:


Psst. Bakers. Here's a tip.

Also, I think your problem stems from a cockeyed decorator with a testy disposition getting a good-natured ribbing from the bakery staff.


Ben, Kristen Z., Bevin C., Petra R., Zack J., and Sara W., these cakes salute you.

Sorry about that.
