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? ;)

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.

Cakes Only A Mother Could Love

I think the following cakes are really special. Like seeing a beautiful newborn for the first time, these baby shower cakes leave me… well, speechless.

What a coincidence! E.T. was on my TV today, too!

Ethan... phone home...

(and tell your parents Jersey Shore called. They want their tan back.)


"Hi, bakery? I have a baby shower coming up. Do you make cupcakes?"

"Baby shower CUP cakes? Yeah. We can 'handle' that."

If you squint your eyes, it’s actually not a baby at all, but a bronzed, muscular man in a tank top popping out of the cup. See it? See it? Let’s call him Joe. He must be posing for his mug-shot. Just look at those eyes! He really knows how to espresso himself, doesn't he?


Thanks to Dawn M. for finding these little bundles of joy. It's been a latte fun!
