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? ;)

Almost Famous

Time to play "Guess that Celeb!"


Ok, I know what you're thinking.

But hey, in some countries, Mr. Bean IS a celebrity.

(No, seriously, that's supposed to be Mr. Bean.)

Ok, try this one:

Give up?

Here, I'll give you a hint:

it's Zac Efron.

Allegedly.

How about a little rock royalty?

"He's got mud on his face! A big disgrace! Curling that ribbon all over the place."

Yes, Freddie Mercury: we will Wreck you.

I don't know about you guys, but I like my cakes to have a good head on their shoulders:


Next we'll have to work on having good shoulders under the head.

Oh, and hey, Mr. Tupac Sugar, keep ya head up!!

(Yeah, I admit it: I had to Wiki him to find that song title.)


Poor "Cyndi." Her colors may be true, but time after time those cheeky wreckerators just wanna have "fun." With quotation marks.

'Course, if you think it would be weird to eat a celebrity's effigy, imagine what a weird Situation it is for them:

I guess they ran out of orange icing.

Ok, guys, party time! Grab that Lady Gaga cake; it's time to "poke her face!"


I would complain about this looking nothing like her, but frankly I think it's worse when the cake is a dead ringer:

"And for dessert, allow me to introduce Ray Lewis!"

Creeepy. Also, I've heard of linebackers being built like refrigerators, but this is ridiculous.

If you really want to bring your "A" game, though, then this next cake will fit you to a "T":


I sympathize with the inferior who gets that earring slice.

Teaming With Wreckage

The only thing I know about sports is that hitting the man in black over the head with a rock is NOT very sportsmanlike. Still, even *I* can see something's off with these sports team cakes.


I mean, c'mon, who takes a lovely sunburned R.O.U.S. like this:




...and turns it into Disney's Mushu, twisted up like a pretzel?


P.S. For you non-Disney folk, this is Mushu:

This next one is much better, though:

Bwahahaha!!

Yes, I lied. Get used to disappointment.

How about a simple star?


Think it'll work?

Correct answer: "It would take a miracle."

At this point it's just morbid curiosity keeping you going, isn't it? [nodding] Yeah. I'm right there with ya.


[blinking] Hoo boy. Anyone else have a bad feeling about this?

Oh. Well, I guess it could be worse..

It's worse, it's worse!

Hey, you know those videos online where you see the freight train headed for the tanker truck full of gasoline, and part of you is cringing and thinking what a horrible tragedy is about to occur, and the other part is all, "Oh man, this is gonna be GOOD!"

Well, allow me to introduce a tanker truck full of gasoline:



Now, heeeere comes the freight traaaaaiiiin!! (Choo choo!)

KERBLOOOIEEE!!!
