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? ;)

Sunday Sweets Does the Monster Mash

I was working in the lab late one night

(By Tiffany's Baking Co.)


When my eyes beheld an eerie sight

For my monster from his slab began to rise

(By Sara Konz of King's County Market, pic by Brian Dunnette)


And suddenly, to my surprise

(By bardiera using Confetti Cake's design)

 [He did the mash!]

He did the monster mash

[The monster mash!]

It was a graveyard smash

 [He did the mash!]

It caught on in a flash

[He did the mash!]

He did the monster mash

The zombies were having fun

The party had just begun

The guests included Frank's bride:

 His mummy, and his son

Out from his coffin, Drac's voice did ring

Seems he was troubled by just one thing

He opened the lid and shook his fist

(By Karen Portaleo of Highland Bakery)

 "Whatever happened to my Transylvania twist?"


[It's now the mash!]

It's now the monster mash

(By Mike's Amazing Cakes)

[The monster mash!]

And it's a graveyard smash

[It's now the mash!]

It's caught on in a flash

(By The Cake Whisperer)

 [It's now the mash!]

It's now the monster mash

Now everything's cool, Drac's a part of the band

And my monster mash is the hit of the land

For you, the living, this mash was meant, too

When you get to my door, tell them Sully sent you: 

 [Then you can mash!]

Then you can monster mash

[The monster mash!]

And do my graveyard smash

[Then you can mash!]

You'll catch on in a flash

[Then you can mash!]

Then you can monster mash!
