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? ;)

A Little Late to the Meme

Hello, Wreckies.

Look at this cake you want:

Now look at the cake you got:

Now look at me:

Now look at this other cake:

Now back to me:

Look down.

Now back up.

This is a horse:

Now I'm pink.

Now look at the Jonas Brothers:

I'm a pirate.

Valerie, Olyvia S., Stacey, Rebecca M., Kayleen W., Tamara H., Shannon S., & Mandy R., I think these jokes may be little stale. Eh, I guess that's what you get with
old spice cakes.


Update: The Jesus Raptor painting was originally done by Monty Propps. The original painting of Jesus with the lamb was done by Del Parson.

John, Applause for this great "crowd of mis-cakes".


PS You are walking the fine line with TNT and a sense of humor- good job.

"Raptor of the Christ" *snerk* "Dyno-Christ" So many bad puns come to mind.

And so many bad cluster bombs of CCCs.

I could use some fresh spice cake right now.

I just read it 3 times in a row. That brightened my day. Good times

My husband thinks that the only cake that could top the Raptor Of Jesus would be Him caressing a baby Cthulhu. Or maybe Cthulhu showing up in a manger scene.

Thank you so so so so much for the Jesus/dinosaur cake. I am laughing/crying at work and could not be happier. I needed a good laugh so bad, and WOW, did that just hit the spot. Love you guys!

Gotta love it! Just when you think you've seen it all!

@Caroline B:
"Do you think the wreckorator misconstrued the Rapture of Christ to be the Raptor of Christ?"

ROFL That's genius! (and probably what inspired the photoshop)

October 20, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Serious props to Caroline B for the "raptor of Christ." I laughed out loud.

And hooray for you for that great, great, fabulously hysterical image. I thought I spent too much time on the internet, but it was new to me, too. Now must think of an occasion for such a cake....

Love the dinosaur cake. Wouldn't say it's a wreck, I just love it. It was well done.

October 20, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

I always wondered where dinosaurs fit intto biblical history. and behold! evidence!

October 20, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Nice reference. Made me smile. :)

Also, that raptor jesus cake is pretty cool, actually.

October 20, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterBLAM!


I love the Old Spice commercial, bringing it to CW was just a step into the Twilight Zone, and absurdly wonderful.

I'm pink, I'm a horse, I'm a pirate. I heard it all in OS guy's voice. Which is weird, since the CCC's were mostly female.

I admit it, I'm an internet junkie, I have seen Jesus holding the raptor before. Ok, so maybe not in person...

Thanks for the laughs!!


October 20, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Oh, I love that commercial! But some of those cakes... not so much. Brilliant post.

Also, the Jesus/dino cake is the only acceptable use for edible photos (paintings?).

October 20, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterInaya

Great spoofage there John! :D

October 20, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterStephanie

Love it, I now have one of these cakes as the screensaver on my iPhone.

Whoa! Looks like the Jonas brothers 20 years into the future!

I just posted this sesame street video two days ago on facebook:

to which my husband commented:

"Look at your comment, now back to mine. Now back at your comment now back to mine. Sadly it isn't mine, but if you stopped trolling and started posting legitimate comments it could look like mine. Look down, back up, where are you? You're scrolling through comments, writing the comment your comment could look like. What did you post? Back at mine, it's a reply saying something you want to hear. Look again the reply is now diamonds.Anything is possible when you think before you post"


October 20, 2010 | Unregistered Commenteralysasawyer

The Jesus with the raptor is a great looking cake, but I just couldn't eat a picture of Jesus.

For those wondering about dinosaurs in the Bible, check out the book of Job and the book of Psalms.

October 20, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterDiane1611

Its kinda coincidental tho..Captain Morgan on Facebook had his status set today sounding like the guy from the Old Spice commercial too! Also hilarious!!/CaptainMorgan/posts/166822666677644

WV: whing "Whing goes my head..looking at you, back at the cake, back at you..LOL

Haha that cake with Christ was hilarious. I had to look at it twice to relize what was so off about it. So funny!

October 20, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterElizabeth

the horse should have been the last thing to mimic the commercial better

October 20, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAmanda

The one with Jesus and the dinosaur has got to take the cake. See what I did there?

October 20, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSituationAbs

Wow, I love the photo cake.

October 20, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterWahyu Wijanarko

I kind of love the Jesus cake. How awesome is that?

October 20, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJillian

I love the that cake with Jesus carrying a dinosaur! That is really heart-warming and the art is really definite and well-made! One of the best cakes that I would want to have for my birthday!

October 20, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSam Rice

Ok I'm sure it's been said 127 times already (I'm too lazy to read through the comments) but can you puh-lease make a video of this post?! John can sing? Or your assistant Jen can find out there's a dead dog again? Extra awesomeness if you do it with muppets..... Pleeeaasseeeee?

October 20, 2010 | Unregistered Commenter.

Does this mean that all the little dinosaurs get to go to heaven now too? Oh, glory be! I was so worried about them!

October 20, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJenV

There's a song titled "Big Black Horse and a Cherry Tree". It's about the devil tempting the singer. I'm thinkin' that's the big black horse from the song.

...And T-Rex Jesus is just funny, even if it IS a photocake.

October 20, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterBADKarma!

the post itself made me grateful for Kegel xrcz (exercise should be a 4 letter word- don't you think?) but the Raptor of Christ made me pee on myself. after that, the songs were just icing on the cake, so to speak

Best. Post. EVER! Someone should totally email it to the corporate Old Spice people - how could they not hoot with laughter?
Just plain awesome :)

The Jesus holding a dinosaur cake made even my grumpy husband giggle.

October 20, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMy name is Michelle.

It's Raptor Jesus!

October 20, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

That's the cake your cake could smell like!
(Anything is possible when your cupcakes smell like a dinosaur and not a lady.)

October 21, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterStacy Q

I want Jesus cake!!!

October 21, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterLacey

My guess is the Jesus-dinosaur cake was commissioned by a creationist group.

October 21, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterpikkewyntjie

Ooh, maybe the horse is Bad Horse himself! The Thoughoubred of Sin in the same post as Jesus and the dino, wow.

October 21, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJasry

The pirate cake makes me think of Noddy playing pirate-
What strikes me about the Raptor of Jesus cake is the expression on Jesus' face- looks like he's thinking, "Just wait till you see what my Dad has planned for you, ha ha." Which is not a very Christian attitude ;-)
WV: Latoo- what you get when you order a latte from a cakewrecker to go with the cake

October 21, 2010 | Unregistered Commentercolleenoz

Ok I kinda liked the Jesus cake. It is tons better than those evil CCC cakes that are trying to be cute. But are not lol. And that first cake scary how that fish looks like it has a swirl of green poo with red dots on it.. gross and scary.

October 21, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterArlene

I want the Raptor of Christ cake next Easter!

October 21, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Jesus loves the little raptors, all the raptors of the world. Red, yellow, black, and white, they are equal in his sight.

October 21, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJen

The Jesus picture is actually originally a picture of him holding a lamb. You can see it here:

October 21, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Maybe, just maybe, if Jesus had loved all the lost little dinosuars He wouldn't have let them go extinct. I kind-of feel gypped. JC gets to love the dinos but we have to make do with bones? So unfair.

October 21, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterLeigh

That ad will live on forever for awesomeness. So will this blog XD

October 21, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterBilby P. Dalgyte

Three cups of coffee later and I get the old spice zinger! *sigh* Im still voting that the Jesus cakes has got to be the best. If anyone can figure out the reason why someone would want a cake like that, I would love to know!

October 21, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterkadterp

I'm inclined to think that isn't a horse, it's clearly a Thestral! An extra creepy Thestral.

October 21, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterIngeborg

You would love this if you haven't already seen it. :)
