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? ;)

10 Absolutely Ridiculous Easter Cakes

"PHENOMENAL COSMIC POWERS!!"

"Iiiittty bitty living space."

 

Ever wonder why cake decorators use so much plastic flotsam?

WONDER NO MORE.

 

Still, where there's a will to wreck, there is a way:

Bravo, wreckerators. BRAVO.

 

Because when I think of the resurrection of Jesus, I think of splattery tie-dye:

And carrots on a cross.

(I looked it up: carrots are NOT cruciferous vegetables. Dang it.)

 

Easter egg or old pepperoni?

Either way, WOW AM I IN THE EASTER SPIRIT.

 

Q: So how hard IS it to make an egg-shaped cake?

A: Oh, about that hard.

 

"Quick! To the Dimensionally Inaccurate Carrot Car, Bun-Man!"

"I'll be right behind you in the Electro Egg!!"

*zodzodzod*

 

"It's pronounced 'Buh-THEAD.'"

"And that's MISTER Butthead to you."

 

Confession: I actually love these and want a dozen of my very own:

Mostly because they remind me of this:

Passover These Wrecks

Let's hear it for my Jewish homies: Oyyy yeaaah!

Ok, obviously it's a bit difficult to find professional Passover cakes - Wrecks or otherwise - considering the whole leaven thing. However, I thought these were pretty amusing.

Hey, Passover is a celebration of the Israelites escaping Egypt, right? So Moses parting the Red Sea kind of counts as a Passover cake, right?

Well, I thought it was hilariously creative, anyway, so I had to share. Thanks to Blair T. for showing us how Divinity School students rock the party.

 

These next ones are more Label Wrecks than Cake Wrecks, but I think you'll agree they're Wrecks regardless. First, Niobe found this nicely packaged "Passover Coconut Cake"...

Complete with a "rich in tradition" greeting:

But wait...what's this on the back?

"Not Kosher for Passover?!?"

Well, I guess if you are having a "a Passover rich in tradition," you'll just have to hope this cake keeps well for later.

 

At least they're upfront about it, though. Check out what I found over on Yodster's Flickr stream, titled "How a Russian Baker Makes a Cake Kosher for Passover." 

Step 1: Cross out flour on the ingredients list.

Step 2: Add a star of David.

Step 3: Kosher!

 

Happy Passover everyone!
