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? ;)

You'll Never Guess What These Were Supposed To Be...

WARNING: Gratuitous, often incomprehensible wang innuendo ahead.

 

No, no. GUESS:

It's NOT a uterus. Or a ruptured trouser weasel. Scout's honor.

 

Give up?

It's an exploding thermometer. Like this:

Yep. THAR SHE BLOWS.

 

This is ALSO not a one-eyed zipper splitter (with accompanying cherry pit):

Nope, it's a kite.

 

Remember, my friends, no man is an island.

But sometimes his inflatable leg nose is.

 

We sure see a lot of "balloons" that look more like doggy-paddlin' miracle grow:

(Doggy-paddlin' to freedom.)

 

...but sometimes the balloons get a bit more... nutty.

Great gobs of pendulous plum pillows!

Whoever did this should be sacked.

 

Hey, speaking of balls:

Never make Dad the butt of his own cookie cake.

 

And finally, a self-rising lap baguette the baker was so proud of, she had to put a ribbon on it:

The three "fun-slinger" salute was also a nice touch.

(Although once you see it, the green "slung" bits get pretty dang disturbing.)

 

Thanks to the appropriately named Phyllis B., Alicia W., Christina M., Jessica N., Kristine C., Lauren B., Sheree K., & Charlie for just being happy to see these wrecks, and not having any butterfly cakes in their pockets.

Cheap Cheat Sheets

Ah, where WOULD we be without those helpful hints from our friendly wreckerators?

"WHAT IN HOLY...oh. It says, 'Meow!'

"So it must be something that can imitate a cat."

 

Sometimes the hints are fairly subtle:

Pssst. You misspelled "Poopy."

 

While wiser wreckerators go for slightly more direct labeling:

Finally answering the question, "Can I get a what-what?"

 

Rainbow!

 

Um...strawberry!

 

Diploma?

 

Now you're just screwing with us.

 

And finally, my favorite, no doubt written after someone was asked just a few times too many:

 

Thanks to Sara A., Julia L., Stephanie L., Sadie P., Rose B., Anne B., Elizabeth S., & Erin F., who are all going, "OoooOOooh, NOW I see it!"
