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? ;)

It's The Most Wreckiest Time Of The Year 

It's my favorite time of the wrecky year, minions: HALLOWEEN.

The time when all rules of cake decorating go right out the window, and anything goes.

Want a scarecrow with a carrot nose in a leprechaun beard wearing a Mary Poppins hat?

GOT ONE.

 

How about a hypnotized Mummy eating bacon while sweating blood?

YUP.

 

Cheez Whiz candy corn?

ABSOLUTELY.

 

Sperm Ghosts?

NATURALLY.

 

Pumpkin Volcanoes?

IT'S NOT HALLOWEEN WITHOUT 'EM!

 

What if you get the hankering for a giant mound of frosting with random brownie bites thrown in?

YOU ALSO GET A SPIDER.

 

Yes, my friends, this year really does have it all.

Even oddly specific, physically impossible gravestone dates.

TIME TRAVEL IS REAL.

Get It Together, Bakeries

Wrecky minion Aryn took this photo last Sunday, October 23rd:

OCTOBER 23RD.

So this bakery is selling Christmas cakes two major holidays before Christmas. Which would be awesome for pranking that friend who passed out after drinking too much, but otherwise... da heck?

 

And if you think Christmas Creep is bad, wait'll you see Easter Creep:

A pink Easter Egg cake... made October 19th.

Because it's never too early to stock up on "decorated" egg cakes in October, you guys.

 

It actually gets worse when bakeries try to be seasonally appropriate:

Orange icing + crappy turtle pancake = "Fall!"

 

White pointy-headed "ghosts" + anything = FAIL!

Seriously, let's talk about all the ways this is a bad idea.

Oh yes, please, put them on white cupcakes. THAT HELPS SO MUCH.

 

Speaking of not helping, you know how all the creepy clowns in the news have McDonald's hiding Ronald and Target pulling costumes?

This was also spotted last week.

Although at least the clown is recognizable. What about this thing?

It was out last week, so... Dapper Halloween Alien? Count Unibrow? Evil Mystic Muppet?

Oooh, "Evil Mystic Muppet" would be an awesome band name.

 

Thanks to Aryn W., Elizabeth C., Robbie C., Anony M., Julie R., Alexa M., & Jenny E for reminding us it's just two more months 'til Christmas.
