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? ;)

This is really quite the bug-eyed snowman!

I'd just rather not see him around


He'll say, "Won't you buy me?"
I'll say, "No, man!"

"You've even got the penguins feeling down!"

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.
