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? ;)

Oh, The Turkeys Are Screaming, Alright

You may have noticed a certain turkey ice cream cake that gets to be all the rage around this time each year:

That's the one.


Of course, that's also a company promotional photo. Your own results may vary.

Like so:


Or so:


Or so:

It's like that scene in Basic Instinct, only with more giggle-snorts.


Britney S. takes home the prize, though, with her dad's birthday cake:

Sweet Staypuft, why is there a face on it?!



Britney tells me she was disappointed to learn that, in addition to looking like that, her turkey cake didn't even have any cake in it; it was just all ice cream.

Left with no way to secure the birthday candles, Britney's family improvised - and rather brilliantly, I might add:



Thanks to Ilana, Kate G., Aayesha, & Britney for the flaming drum sticks. And for the rest of you: please don't go burning your houses down with your ice cream cakes. Although the irony would be delicious.


Hey, did you know I wrote a holiday book? Full of funny cakes? That makes a perfect gift? 'CUZ I DID. Only $6 on Amazon, too!


You Gonna Eat That?

It's Clean Out Your Fridge Day, my friends, and I, the Queen of Unidentifiable Food Objects, am here to guide you through it.


STEP ONE: Purchase celebratory "Clean Out Your Fridge Day" cake.

Fortunately, wreckerators have provided us with LOTS of options. For example:

I think it used to be a hot dog.


No worries; just scrape that into a bowl and get me a straw. [eyebrow waggle]


Welp, looks like the ants are about done with it. Your turn.


So which is worse: corn chips in chocolate icing or refried beans on a cake?
Inquiring minds want to know.


Please don't let those be tongues.


I demand to see Life's manager.



STEP TWO: Now that you've acquired your "Clean Out Your Fridge Day" cake, it's time to open the door to your refrigerator. Don't be afraid, now. Go on!

STEP THREE: Slam the door and just eat out for the rest of your life.


Thanks to Amy S., Ashley A., Kelly S., Charisse O., Melissa T., Sarah B., & Modee, who would like to remind everyone that it is ALSO National Recycling Day, but, no. Just... NO.
