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? ;)

Take A Wild Guess Day

Eat your heart out, Rorschach.


♫ Fishy suspenders ♪


... and helmets for space rays,


Wilson ball swimmers


... and movies shown sideways!


White mushroom cloud as the city goes BOOM:


These are my guesses - now how about you?


Thanks to Denise M., Anony M., Molly S., Erin W., & Karen L., who know there was a time when military admirals actually DID serve nuclear mushroom cloud cakes. Ahh, it was a simpler time.

Even More Cakes That Fail Hilariously At Looking Like The Things They're Supposed To Look Like

Back by popular* demand! A brand new edition of Cakes Failing To Look Like The Things They're Supposed To Look Like!

[*The cats liked it.]

A Shamrock:

When the luck of the Irish has a bad day.
And then gets all its limbs cut off.


Literally the easiest thing you can make with cake:



A Football Helmet:

Alien skull. Final answer.



If these look right to you, then someday you're going to make a podiatrist very, VERY happy.



Or stick figures with no faces.


A School Bus:

Or so they claim.
I'm convinced this is actually a platypus named School Bus. See the little nostrils?


A Baseball Glove:

For the longest time I thought this was supposed to be turkey.
Then I saw the fingernails.



Can you guess what this is supposed to be?


How about this one?

Assuming someone guesses right!

Thanks to Anony M., Jennifer M., Matt M., Katie T., Maggie P., Sally N., Tracie T., Jennalee, & Lauren L. for the excuse to use John's favorite post title again.


Note from john: Someone just told me they were done with Cake Wrecks because Jen didn't give you guys the answer in the comments in a timely manner. Honestly, we thought it was fun seeing your guesses. Well, as far as we know, it's the Mad Men logo and a teapot. Unless we're wrong. Merry Christmas!
