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? ;)

I had to come look at the color pictures just to verify that it really was tweety bird. It's pretty much unrecognizeable without the bright yellow coloring.

AGH! Meercats and swirling poo! MY EYES!

March 11, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterwundermary

The little shih tzus don't actually look so bad! But yeah, Britton's right--Tweety just looked (more) like a blob without the yellow.

March 11, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAmanda

So true. In black and white, that picture does not look anything like Tweety Bird.

Did anyone else ever dissect a fetal pig in high school biology? Because I swear they took mine from 10 years ago and put it on that "meerkat" cake!

New test for cake displays. Take a picture in black and white, if you can't tell what it is, cut it up and sell individual slices.

Kinda like the monkey, other than the fact that you'll be cutting into his face.
And the fetal pig comparison added a new level of creepy to the meerkats.

Sadly enough, the meerkats still look like zombies even in color.

March 12, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Hell, thats unrecognizable WITH the bright yellow coloring!

March 15, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJamaine

Did the meerkats kill a bunch of rats and skin (some of) them? Or are those owl pellets? Coyote scat? Glossy meerkat vomit?

March 15, 2010 | Unregistered Commentersjjannen

OMG that really IS supposed to be tweety bird!! What was that wreakerator ON??

March 16, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterPepper

That tweetie cake reminds me of the one where he was Jeckyll/Hyde, and he got all big and scary. Does anyone remember that one?

Yeah and the meerkats look really proud of the fresh droppings they left on the cake.

In b&W, the Tweetie cake looks like an alien - with the big angular eyes. I've seen the shih-tzus done before, but done MUCH better. And whoever said fetal pigs took the words right out of my mouth. How is that NOT supposed to look like poo? In b&w or color, all I could see was poo. I bet NOBODY, not even the birthday child, was willing to eat a piece of that disaster.

Swirling poo? Meercats? What has this world come to?
(Kinda makes you wonder what the customer ASKED for!)

April 1, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterScarlett Robyn

You know, the meerkats could almost pass as meerkats. Bald pale meerkats.

September 6, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMissNay

Tweety Bird? more like Scary Bird! That is a show stopper without a bad way. x

I think the worst thing about the "Tweety" cake is how DISGUSTING the display case window looks!!! When have you ever walked into a bakery and seen extreme condensation on the inside of the display case windows (or the outside for that matter). YUCK!!
The little doggy cupcakes are cute...but I wouldn't want to bite into a cute little doggy,

February 19, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterBhakti

Kate - I remember the Jeckyll/Hyde Tweety episode - and yes, you're right, that cake DOES looks like TweetyHyde!

December 29, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterpreacherspice

That intestinally-colored collection on the meerkat cake looks like there used to be a third meerkat until a predator came along...and now the one on the right is all "Yes!! More meerkitten love for moi!"

December 29, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterFlartus

The Tweety bird cake looks like Tweety's a zombie to me. Oh no! The Meerkat Zombies got Tweety!

"I taught I taw a putty tat. I did I DID tee a putty tat! And his bwain was dewicious!"

@Kate, I totally remember Tweety Jeckyll and Hyde.

December 29, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterTechyDad

in color, the meerkats kinda remind me of possums.
In B&W... I don't want to think about it.

December 29, 2011 | Unregistered Commentersqrlhrdr

Ewwwwe...why are there entrails in the grass around the meerkats???

December 30, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterGiselaT

Yikes any of these would have me running for the door lol. Especially the black and white photos. Just plain scary in color or without.

December 30, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterArlene

WTF are those meerkats standing in?????? D:

December 30, 2011 | Unregistered Commentermindy1

The meerkats seriously looked like taxidermy to me, GROSS!

December 30, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMichelle66

I had to look at them in color to make sure that the meerkats weren't standing on a pile of entrails. I'm still not convinced that they aren't.

January 3, 2012 | Unregistered Commentermarfie

Ohh Kayy... eyes cakes... so, uh, yeah. A group of rabid shitzus, a tweety bird that appears to be melting, AND meercat zombies standing in what is ether some form of animal droppings or ENTRAILS. To much wreckage people. And if I might add, after seeing the wrecks in color, I feel that maximum creepeyness has been reached, and I will not BE ABLE TO SLEEP for at least a week.

January 15, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterJJ7

That monkey cake makes me think of Sunset Boulevard. Creepy.

October 20, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterDebra Crosby

Siamese meerkats standing in poop... gaaak

October 21, 2017 | Unregistered Commenterellen

Wow,I am here in 2018 and who's, Jen's changed!

February 3, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterGinny

Wow. 11 years ago.... I feel like i'm in a museum

January 21, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterAbby

Meerkats are amazingly bad, but has anyone ever seen a better meerkat cake? Aside from the owl pellets or whatever, not half bad...just make that part all green grass, or brown weeds.
