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? ;)

Redefining the Turkey Breast

Warning!: The title is extremely appropriate.


Check out this great rack!

I hear under wire support really is the best.

While it's tempting to milk these wrecks for all they're worth, I've decided to nip the puns in the bud with a more uplifting approach. After all, I'd rather bust a move than mend a pillow, you know? Or knock the highbeams off a Winnabago than scale the Grand Tetons. Or torpedo a honker than plant a My Little Pony. You feel me?

(Now, aren't you glad I got that off my chest?)

Ta-ta for now!

Thanks to Katie N. who makes two excellent points.

I don't understand making a cake or cupcake to look like a roasted turkey. Why?!

Okay, I can handle a cake made to look like a roasted turkey. A roasted turkey with breast implants? Okay, this plastic surgery trend has GOT to stop - What next, naked carrot jockeys with botox and lip fillers

Turkey legs and turkey boobs--who knew they were interchangeable?

November 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJelliDonut

Ewwwkay that makes sense :shock:

November 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

just noticed that there are places for others which means someone BOUGHT those thingys. probably took them home to the fraternity house.

November 27, 2010 | Unregistered Commentermargarey

Ouch! You nearly put my eyes out with those things.

November 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

I think a wreckerator's turkey stupor and breast-not-thigh preference has really affected them badly! Seriously, pin-up turkeys??? But I guess it makes sense that there's "devil's food" cake in there!

My Littlr Pony?

November 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSarah

Whoo-hoo! Bonus Saturday post!

:blink: :blink: :blink:

Uhm..., well, the trouble you went to is still appreciated.

November 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Wait... what about My Little Pony?

*confused puppy look*

November 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMeg

What's even more disturbing is that 4 of them are missing from the tray..... PEOPLE ACTUALLY BOUGHT THESE THINGS!!! Ugh, I despair of humanity sometimes.....

November 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSandra


Punny, really punny!! Love it when you get right to the point of the conversation. Monologue. Whatever.


November 27, 2010 | Unregistered Commentermladybright

Brest post ever! Think they come in snack trays?

November 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJenniffer

I don't know anyone who can pack more puns into a single sentence, Jen.

You came out with both guns loaded today.

November 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterPink Overalls

It probably should be My Little Porny.

November 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMarie

Makes me wish my turkeys were that perky.

November 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMissNay

A couple of jugs of milk to go with those 'cakes', anyone?

November 27, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterilze

Thanks for the titillation, John!

November 27, 2010 | Unregistered Commentermorriganscrow

Hey boys and girls, what time is it? Time to ban turkey cakes! Yay!

Why are people buying these? Why is there more than one for people to buy in the first place? Why is there even one?

Bevis & Butthead opened their own bakery near frat row. That's the only explanation I can see. Someone said they wished turkeys had more breast meat, and the rest is history.

One more thing: My Little Pony? Do we want to know the explanation? This could be the first Epcot in the form of a question.

November 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterCraig

All I can think is, "Why?"

November 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterKahla

Who? Who? I ask WHO? makes crap like this!?! Seriously!

November 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterClayvessel

Oh my! They kinda look like Hershey Kisses.
Hey Jen, have you heard about the Farmville Baking Contest? You've been mentioned several times in the comments.
There are some pretty awesome stuff being made. So far the only wrecky things I have seen have been the people who cant seem to understand that they are suppose to bake something in real life, in their real kitchen and not on their farm. Here's the link.

November 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSilvawolves

Love it!

November 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterBeth Bento

What disturbs me most about the picture is the fact that four of the turkey cakes are missing. I am assuming this means a few customers actually paid to take home one of these unpalatable oddities. Sad. Very sad.

Must be the hormones....

November 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterFrugal Frolic

Thank you for making my day.

Once again.

November 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterFluffy Cow

Wow! I submitted that! I thought nothing on the internet could make me squeal, but this is cool! Let me tell you, there was some snickering going on as we were standing in front of the cooler. I know people are horrified that people bought these, but what is even worse is what I couldn't manage to get a photo of- there were more. There were at least 2 more trays. Why? I don't know.

November 28, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

since they are on the bottom of the bird then they are in th wrong place to be breasts. see, the wings are at the top.

November 28, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

There were two more trays?! So these things not only sold, they were popular. Oy!

That's it -- we officially live in a class-free society.

I hope those cakes had better taste than those on either side of the transaction.

November 28, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterCraig

A little bird told me that those turkey cakes flew off the shelf. Obviously, more than one person was super keen to gobble-gobble them down.

PS. I hope those are free-range turkey cakes, Baker!

OMG! Still grinning like an idiot!

Commentary was very fitting! LOL


TTFN! hahahahahha

November 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

My Little Pony? Please explain this one. Or wait, maybe I don't want to know.

November 29, 2010 | Unregistered Commentermyimaginaryblog

They were trying to make turkey LEGS on the back of the turkey. They just happen to not look anything like legs, what with their pointy-ness and not-very-exact-placement. But the post was funny nonetheless.
