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? ;)

Going Through a Rough Patch

It's the quintessential symbol of Halloween: the Jack-O-Lantern. Fortunately, it's also one of the easiest designs for a baker to make. Just take one round cake, ice it in orange, add a cartoony face, and...voilá!


Er. Heh, sorry. Let's try that again.


That's...not a cake.

[rolling up sleeves] Voila!

Is that...plastic?



A Pumpkin Poo-nicorn. Well. That's a first.

[through gritted teeth] Voi-la.

What the...what IS that? Come on, seriously, there's no way you could make this thing look less like a pumpkin!

Allow me to retract that last statement.

Knock, knock.

Well? Orange you glad I didn't say "voila?"

Hm. Maybe the problem lies in trying to make the whole cake look like a pumpkin. Maybe if the baker just drew a pumpkin ON the cake...



[more blinking]


Dorota, Carra M., Melody N., Shanna T., Andrew M., Ted, Donny & Amanda, Kaitlin K., & T.A., don't ask me; I'm going with "abstract jack-o-lantern."


A Little Late to the Meme

Hello, Wreckies.

Look at this cake you want:

Now look at the cake you got:

Now look at me:

Now look at this other cake:

Now back to me:

Look down.

Now back up.

This is a horse:

Now I'm pink.

Now look at the Jonas Brothers:

I'm a pirate.

Valerie, Olyvia S., Stacey, Rebecca M., Kayleen W., Tamara H., Shannon S., & Mandy R., I think these jokes may be little stale. Eh, I guess that's what you get with
old spice cakes.


Update: The Jesus Raptor painting was originally done by Monty Propps. The original painting of Jesus with the lamb was done by Del Parson.
