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? ;)

Hey, Bebeh

"Girl, you lookin' fine. Why don't you come over here, and give daddy a lil' sugar?"

"Check it. I've got a spiky polar-bear-skin rug for us to lounge on, and some suh-weet champagne glasses the size of water coolers. I even put on my navy blue tighty-whities, 'cuz I know how much you dig those.

"What's that, kitten? You like the light blue ones better? No problem."

[patting rug] "This cracked concrete floor is hard, baby, but not as hard to you? Yeah. Yeah, that's it. Hey, kids! What are you doing in here? Amscray, will ya?"

"That's better. Now, where were we? Ah, yes, talking about how lucky you are - or at least how lucky you're gonna be. [waggling eyebrows] Aww yeaaah. This sea I'm lying in is the ocean of my love, and it's all for you, girl, it's all for you. [wink wink]

"What's a matter, doll? Still not convinced? How 'bout if I do some leg lifts?"

"My sticker may say 'yellow', pudd'n, but this here treat is pure chocolate, if you know what I'm sayin'."

I don't know about you, Aimee T., Lisa C., J.B., and Becky B., but I am definitely in the mood - for cake.

Did no one else see the "Bettis getting old" mistake? Betty's not the only one getting old. Her friend's misspelling and punctuation errors are too.

OMG I have had one of these hunks for years and did not realize he had such a high profile pedigree. He used to live in my kitchen in the fruitbowl along with the apples and the avacados which refused to ripen.Last year I began taking him on adventures and the rest is history. FruitBowl Tony now has his own FaceBook page. I am sure he will be referencing your blog in the future with his usual braggadocio

I don't know which is better, this post or lynettepleasant's comment.

Also, do these cakes remind anyone else of Ken from Toy Story 3?

this is the Funniest Website Ever!!!
I just discovered this site last night and I haven't stopped laughing yet! :D -
but my favorite so far still has to be the "Congratoletionsj Jamij on your blandle OFJOY !" - I laughed so hard I cried - my cat actually came to check on me last night because I was wheezing and gasping so much - I've started off again just thinking about it! I'm weeping while I'm at work and I can't catch my breath...
when (if) I recover, I'm going to send a link to this site to every friend I have!

CRIPE! That first one looks like it should be called Romancing the Sheep! I guess these are groom cakes? Then-it would go really well if he rented a movie dubbed in Rosanne's show-Romancing The Bone. It went over REAL well for Dan that night!

I don't think the last guy is doing leg lifts. I think he's performing the move that allows him to fart in someone's - anyone's - general direction.

Is it just me, or does anyone else notice the disney princess napkins in the background of the first picture???!!! What parent in their right mind would give their little girls a naked man cake for their birthday???!!! they shouldn't be thinking about the sort of stuff yet!!!

Could it be some sort of reference to Sergey Veremeenko, the Russian Oligarch? . . .
