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 Official: Bakers Hate The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

I don't know why, minions, but it's true: bakers hate the Ninja Turtles.

How else can you explain this?


Or this?



Aw, a lobster reached across his face and tried to flex. SO CUTE.


So fierce are the flames of this loathing that some bakers are driven - DRIVEN, I say - to churn out new turtle-'trocities every week!

But why?


Did they hear "Cowabunga" one too many times as a child?

Is this retribution for the Turtles' anchovy & fudge sauce pizza orders?



Are these bakers secret members of The Foot Clan?!


Or - and this one is truly unthinkable - do they not like the new theme song*?

♫ The good guys win and bad guys lose! ♪

Whatever the reason, bakers, can't we all just get along?

And stop shoving spoons in Raphael's face?

After all, bakers, we really don't need you destroying our childhood heroes.


We have movie producers for that.*


Thanks to Amanda S., Carrie H., Crista C., Aubrey D., Becca, Cat R., Sharlyn W., Anony M., Jennifer J., & Tabatha B. for the excuse to post this:

What you see... NOT what you get.


(Change the "ride" to "wreck," and you've got a deal.)


From wedding tiers of roses...

Ooooooh. Drippy.


To rows of wedding tears:

You're doing it wrong.


Here's a little Disney magic for you:


Bippity, Boppity...



Ah, but that's nothing. Want to see something REALLY wild?


This is what happens when animal print cakes feel blue:

And also kind of intestine-y.


Thanks to Jessica W., Diana B., Gina L., & Leighanne G. for the excuse to use "intestine-y." I've been holding on to that one for YEARS.
