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 Cakes To Cure That Hangover


Now, I know some of you may have overdone it a bit last night, but don't you worry; Auntie Jen is here to help. With her accordion. And her strobe lights.

First things first, though: let's get you a niiiice, stomach-settling breakfast:

[singing] Jen is GREAT! She gives you chocolate CAKE!


What, not hungry yet? Oh, but you have to eat something! How 'bout this?

Bet you can really sink your teeth into that, right? Haha!

Still no?


Ooh, I know just the thing to get the ol' juices flowing:

Hand me that scalpel, and I'll get ya a middle slice.


Gosh, you sure are a picky eater.


Well, I'm determined to find you SOMETHING. How 'bout some world-famous squid corn?


Ducky's Sticky Ball Surprise?


Log Dump?


I don't actually know what this next one is...

[squinting] ... but it appears to be bleeding.



Whoa there, you're not looking so good, my friend! Maybe a little fresh fruit would help.


Ok, so I don't have any fresh fruit. But I think these might be pear slices:



What's that, you say? You want me to "cut it out?"


Well, if you insist...

Chock Full Of Fun

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.
