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? ;)

6 Cakes That Fail Hilariously At Looking Like The Things They're Supposed To Look Like, Vol 101

Let's hope these bakers are never on your Pictionary team.


A Barbie Princess Tiara:

All I see is a giant cat's paw. Does Barbie have a cat? Is this somehow related? Am I over-thinking this? Where are you all going?


A Bucket of Popcorn:

The "Movie Night" really sells it.


A Wine Glass:

If only we could all age like wine older, am I right?


A Mustache:

Looks like "Dad" has a hairy situation on his hands.

Kinda love the belligerent octopus cupcakes, though. They're all, "Put 'em up, put 'em uuup!"


A Fighter Jet:

I swear I'm not making this up.


And finally, a pair of lips:


Yeesh. You show a person a penis cake or fifty, and suddenly their mind is, like, ALWAYS in the gutter.

Wrecky minion Lauren sent in today's cookie cake with a single, desperate plea:

"Tell me what this means!!"

And while I agree that it appears to be some kind of secret hieroglyphic code - no doubt used to communicate government secrets to fondant sympathizers - I honestly have no clue what it says.

So help me out, peeps:

My best guess?

Carrots seize (seas) the G3 checkpoint.

(Aha! Maybe someone is calling the Carrot Jockeys to action?)


And while you're at it, can somebody PLEASE tell me what this is?

Because all I see is a bleeding rain cloud. Or maybe a bleeding frozen brain. Oh! Oh! Could it be Frozen/ Walking Dead cross-over? DARE TO DREAM, PEOPLE.


Thanks to Lauren & Anonymous for finding either awesomely clever cake puzzles, or the world's most fiendish decorator trolls. (That bleeding thing is almost $34. THIRTY FOUR DOLLARS!)
