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? ;)

Halloween "Huh?"s

For today's cakes I have no answers. Only questions.

Uh, what's up with her nose? (Or should I say "down with her nose?")
I like to think it's just a wart, but I get the feeling that it'sss...not.

Why is the toilet paper angry?

What do colorful sperm have to do with Halloween?
(Granted, "Happy" I could see...)

WHAT in the name of sweet Lassie is that spider doing?!?

I have two questions for Mr. Ghost-with-the-Most here:
First, why did the Wreckerator feel it necessary to include two small chocolate bars and a gummi worm? And second, why, oh why, did s/he put them there and in that order?

Now, I don't want to leave you with all questions, my dear Wreckies, so here's a cake that answers the following:

Q) What do you get if you cross Princess Leia, Dracula, and the Bride of Frankenstein?

A) This:

Paige, Carey H., H.M., Erin, Suzanne U., & Daa, you must admit the resemblance is uncanny.

I don't think I even want to know the answers!

I kind of liked the TP one, though. It was at least original . . . to some extent!

But the poor little doggie and that spider! No, no, no! Cute little doggies don't need spiders on their butts!

At least I chuckled at the last one! Great lead-in!

Aw, I love the angry toilet paper - so cute!

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAmanda M.

HAHAHAHAHA! Angry toilet paper!

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterTerraD

Shouldn't the "good bar" be in the middle?

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterTaylor@MyOlderBrothers

On the third, I'd be a bit scared if I had sperm like _that_ coming anywhere near my girl-bits.

Why is the toilet paper angry? Ha! Now let's see a really pissed off plunger! Got one?

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterHalf Assed Kitchen

I almost bust a gut when I saw the "Why is the toilet paper angry" one! OMG. This is one of the best entries ever. I love the writing on it, along with the total wreckiness of the whole thing.

What IS that spider doing there, hmmm?

Oh, Jen, you have so totally made my day. If things get bad today, I'm just coming back here to laugh and feel better. Thank you!

My question about the dog/spider cake....why does the dog have glasses on top of his head? Does he really WANT to see what's creeping up behind him?

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterrabbit_2_26

Please - it's far too early in the morning to be reminded of exacly how salacious my imagination is!

..."what in the name of sweet Lassie"....oh on the monitor again....

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterDiana

Why was the toilet paper angry????
If you were tp, wouldn't you be????
Thanks for the morning smiles!

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

No, I don't think it's toilet paper. I think it's an angry marshmallow. And I love him!

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterDeanna

I have finally stopped laughing for long enough to write a comment. The caption on the spider/dog orgy cake is hilarious! I started laughing, and then I showed it to some other folks and they started and, well, you know how it goes!

Good grief!
Putting aside the spider, (we know he's a pervert)
why does that dog have glasses??

My first post- [hoping the grammar police do not issue me citations...]
WV sorec - Yesterday's cakes were a sorec bunch.

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMocking

On the last one, I would add in a dabble of wookie or dog; no?

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

I think the Wolfman might have gotten into the mix on that last one, too.
I know Halloween is supposed to be scary, but these are headed down the back alley of scary, where the clowns live....

WV: fiesses: Some decorators make their cakes look like fiesses.

For some reason, I like the toilet paper guy. Reminds me of the grouchy guys from the Muppets.

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterSheila Bennett

amysue in austin, perhaps they were going for a Spaceballs mog?

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAlex Getts

I loved the angry toilet paper!

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterStacey

poor bespectacled pooch. i bet his spider senses are tingling.

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterTerry Lee

That first ghost cake kind of looks like Phillipe the Otter from Achewood when he is possessed by Billy Idol.

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterFi

Oh My! The sperm is just too much!

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterElizabeth

If you look at the cake next to the colorful sperm one, it has the same sperm on it! What a fertile bunch of cake!

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnnacakes79

Oh my, that bakery must be really proud of their colorful...soldiers, the CCC next to it is also covered in swimmers. What else could those be meant to be, seriously?!?
On the dog/spider love cake, I am more concerned with the very thick, very orange frosting boarder on the cardboard...what purpose does this serve?
I love the TP one!


October 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

I love the angry toilet paper, but the sperm halloween cake made me lmao. Love you guys!

Happy Halloween!

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterChris, Gina and Hunter

Sweet jeebers I love this blog.

Ty for the laughs!

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMichelle S.

That has to be the cutest angry TP I've ever seen!

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Sweet fancy Moses, these are the worst Wrecks yet. Your captions, however, are the best. :) You have made my rainy morning awesome.

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMira8

obviously the sperm are in disguise. They want to be balloons

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMella

Is that HUMAN flesh in the dog's mouth?

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterKristen

Love the angry TP.

I also love the dog getting eaten by the spider. I would totally buy that!

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterblueiguana42

I almost always get a grin from your site. Today, you got literal lols on EVERY cake and comment.

The colored sperm? The angry toilet paper? The poor puppy who pooped out a spider? I totally see Princess Leia and oh my word this was just good today!

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterTara

colorful sperm are how cake wrecks reproduce?

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterVeruca

Regarding the psychadelic sperm - My birthday is late July. I entertain myself by thinking I was conceived on Halloween... Insert laughter here.

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterSnobahr

So close, yet so far away on that last cake. It could have been cute. One of my grocery stores has those eyes on the witch, they made a 3 eyed monster. I didn't think he was quite wrecky enough to send in though.

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMelinda

At least the first bakery found an ingenious way to utilize those heart pans they bought for Valentine's Day. And when I say "ingenious", I mean who the heck thought it would be a good idea to sell a cake that looks like a witch with the flu?

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterNancy M.

What do you mean, why is the toilet paper angry. It's *toilet paper*, that's all the reason it needs.

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterKore

Angry toilet paper made me laugh.

Then I thought about it too much and decided that toilet paper really ought to be depressed in that Monday-morning-I-hate-my-desk-job way except that instead of a desk job, you're toilet paper.

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterKimberly Chapman

Bwahahahahaha. Love the bat cake! That is awesome.
Wonder if I can get my bakery to attempt to reproduce that. Total win.
That's hilarious.

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterrbnhood

That isn't angry TP, that's just the staypuffed man when he was just a little itty bitty marshmallow monster.

Poor Lassie. I have no idea what that is on her, but doesn't look pleasant.

(Yes, I know I most likely didn't spell staypuffed correctly, but I have no idea on that one. Sorry.)

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJani

That's Lassie the dog and Rimmy the spider!

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Hahaha! I love the toilet paper one!

With the ghost, I think its' pretty obvious that he's looking so spooked because he stole that candy from a kid and now the coppers are chasing him down.

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterEmily

What is UP with the white dog? Was it an old summer cake and they stuck a spider on its ass to make it Halloween? I don't get it.

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterandygirl

I like the TP one. Of course it's angry, think of it's job!

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterCathy

That last one reminded me instantly of the bat from "Eurekas Castle"! Who remembers that show??!

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJes

That last one looks like Alvin on drugs.

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterDecadent Housewife

I want an angry toilet paper cake for my birthday.

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJael

I want the angry toilet paper!!!!
And the spider is getting even for what dogs always do to people!!!

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

LMFAO! Why is the toilet paper angry! Haha! That made me literally LOL. Maybe it's all the cold medicine.... ahh, classic!

October 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterLillian'sheart
