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? ;)

Mmmm, Crunchy!

Hey, kids! Do you know what day it is?!

It's Chocolate Covered Anything Day!

[Kermit flail]



Yep, today is the day when you can take anything and everything and cover it in CHOCOLATE!!!

And you thought chocolate-covered bacon was awesome.


Caught a fish on your camping trip?

Cover it in chocolate!


Wolf Spider crawling on you in the middle of the night?



There's literally no end to the things you can cover in chocolate!

Right, guys?



Hang on.

Dipped or sculpted?

Well, whichever it is, you're going to larva this one:


 Okay, seriously. Japan? We need to talk.

[putting arm around Japan]

Look, I get it. You're fun! You're kooky! Hello Kitty and tentacles and all that. But chocolate covered beetles? Really? Is that even a thing?

It is?


Well, could you at least make them a little less creepy?

Apparently not.


Thanks to Kristina M., Cattie P., Jessica C., Amy M., & D.L., who will never look at that chocolate fountain in Golden Corral the same way again.

8 Disgusting Medical Cakes Only A Nurse Could Love

WARNING: In case the title didn't tip you off, GROSS STUFF AHEAD.


Some of you pointed out that we missed Nurses' Week last week, but as luck would have it, today is International Nurses Day! So allow me to rectify last week's omission...

...with a rectum:



My mom was an RN for most of my childhood, so I've seen firsthand how hardworking, devoted, and utterly strange nurses can be.
For example, nurses don't get grossed out. Like, EVER.

Exhibit A:

Before you ask: yes, yes they are.

(And it only gets worse from here, people. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.)


Nurses can also be notoriously hard to impress with your collection of boo-boos as a child. It's like, "Oh, did you bump your widdle knee? I WATCHED SOMEONE'S BRAIN FALL OUT TODAY."

"So, yeah, I think you'll be fine."

(Ok, my mom never actually said that to me. But I'm sure she thought it.)

And I've heard of cobwebs on the brain before, but I honest-to-goodness never wanted to SEE it.


Nurses can also develop a... shall we say... UNIQUE sense of humor about the human body.

(For a proctologist, ordered by his nursing staff.)


Yep, if there's one thing I've learned from 7 years of looking at cakes, it's that you medical types REALLY like your butt cakes.
But it's not just butts!

Phlebotomy? PlebotoYOU, am I right?

(John: "That... doesn't even make sense."
Me: "Shhhhh...")


And poop charts. What is it with the poop charts?!



I'm not sure which is more horrifying: the fact that this next one is supposed to be a spinal cord, the fact that it's a groom's cake, or those freaky-ass yellow things:



I left the worst for last, though, just to be sure only the strongest of stomach would make it this far.
(And also because John is VERY against my posting this one.)

Last chance to turn back!

And hey, even you medical types may want to put the coffee down. Just sayin'.


It's really gross!

You're still scrolling.


Ohhh kaaaay.
