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? ;)

The Easiest Cake Theme EVER

"You know, I wondered why the baker seemed so relieved when I said I just wanted a "Star Wars: The Clone Wars" cake."

It IS nicely centered, though, Jacqueline W. Maybe that's why the 's' on "wars" was left off?

:D The 's' on the 'clones' was left off, you mean.

Looks more like a rolling movie credit than a cake!

Sexy, naughty, bitchy me at

My youngest son said "Star Whores" for about a year. It humiliated the 3 older siblings to no end!!!
No sprinkles? No glitter???

And sadly, it's only a "war" - as even the "s" was forgotten.

I guess it could be worse... The decorator could have pretended to know all about Star Wars and then churned out a Star Trek tribute...

I haven't seen this film, but after seeing this cake, I just don't know how I can resist! The action... the suspense... the edge-of-your seat excitement...

The blue cloud is a nice touch, no?

Good thing she didn't ask for 'The Chronicles of Narnia : The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe'

You know it's really hard to even imagine what the decorator was thinking - is this for a child?

My 10 year old son loves The Clone Wars from Star Wars. If I presented him with that cake, he would have declare it "Lame, mom". - Then he would have gone to his room and collected all his Star Wars figures and stuck them all over the cake to try to salvage it.

Is cake decorating school for drop outs of culinary school?

I love the blue haze behind the words. Maybe that's a star nebula in the distance?

...You know what? That cake perfectly sums up how I feel about what Lucas has done to the franchise by making the prequel trilogy. Maybe the decorator was just a really frustrated nerd?

Because nothing says inter-galactic space action like a nicely piped pale blue buttercream border...

I ordered a Star Wars cake for my son's birthday party today and thankfully it turned out better than this one.

December 13, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterAmy

I want sprinkles.

WV- persms. How many persms can you fit in your car?

Funny! My son had a Clone Wars birthday party TODAY! His cake kicked that cake's sorry booty.

Star Wars geeks (including myself) everywhere are weeping for this cake.

December 13, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterDenise

Maybe they were trying to recreate the opening credits?

Man, if only all cake decorating was this easy! Want a cake with a puppy on it?

there's no 's' on clone. its the clone wars. they put clone war, therefore, you are mistaken.

They should take this back to the baker and say, "I've changed my mind. Give me a Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious cake."

Then watch him start to worry
