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? ;)

As many of you have probably guessed by now, I get all my news from the Wrecks you send in. Now, is this:

HAH! Uh, no.
Yooouuu betcha.

Case in point: I believe that football-related thing I mentioned before has finally happened. And it's called...

The Superboll?

No, the Supper Bowl. Or...

Super Bowel? Hey, I kinda like the sound of that. Now, all it needs is...

This! Woohoo!

Go, super bowel! Go go go!!

Ok, maybe we should just call it "The Game."


From all this Wreckage, I also know there were two teams involved in "the game."

First we have the Colts, who are big Katamari fans:

(You know, Katamari? The game with the giant tube-head guys? Aw, check out this cute Katamari wedding cake; you'll see what I mean.)

And then there are the Saints, aka "the team with the logo most likely to be butchered by cupcake cakes [patooie!!]":

I think we both get the point here, don't you?

Hey, look, a CCC with appeal!

Yep, that banana is a peelin' from both ends.

Deborah C., Jenny D., Writer Girl, John W., Anony M., Jack O., C.M., & Sara W., orange you glad I only used one banana pun?

What a pity. The Supper Bowl cake decorator actually did a nice job freehanding the Colts logo.

wv: caphyd. Predatory cake bugs. The caphyds are infesting my buttercream roses.

A "Superboll" would be a huge pod of cotton.
"The Game" appears to have a "Superbowel" (Go! Go! Go!) around the outside of the cookie, or pie, or whatever that is.
The Supper Bowl is what my cats eat from.

Super bowel LOL!

February 16, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterLauren Borquez

Uh-oh, "Super Bowel"? Don't touch that cake kiddies unless you want to go charging to the bathroom like a quarterback...

February 16, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterThe Shitty Astrologer


We all just lost the game!

Don't know what it is? Now you're playing.

February 16, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSpicy

Super Bowel is pretty hilarious.
And the messed up fleur de lis are pretty entertaining as well.

Thanks, Jen! If you put it *that* way, I might actually be inclined to take interest in sports.

February 16, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJill of Ark

I love the copious use of doilies for the Saints' fleur de lis. It makes it so dressed up. And festive. And feminine. "And don't forget your 'kerchif when you are out slammin' the other team boys!"

I cannot quit laughing at the "super bowel - go go go" cake!

February 16, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAmanda Mac

I was going to suggest that "The Game" could refer to the rapper, but nowadays he just goes by "Game."

The Katamari football player is the funniest to me.

February 16, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterdeckardcanine

Superbowel? Maybe the wreckorator has a gluten intolerance...

February 16, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterHomebody

Holy moly. Go Super Bowel indeed. What a crappy cake.

February 16, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterEarly Modern Mom

BTW, TLC has announced a reality series called "Cupcake Sisters," set at Georgetown Cupcake. I anticipate plenty of CCCs on the air.

WV: geadmane = one of the Knights of the Round Table, I think.

Unfortunately I am having a hard time lately seeing some of the images - they're just appearing as white squares. I used to be able to see them all and I haven't changed anything at my end.

Is there something I can do so that I don't feel so left out?

February 16, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Have you changed something about how you post pictures? I can only see about half the pictures in this post. Specifically I can't see 1, 3, 4, and 5.

Super bowel...go go go....OMG! I can't stop laughing!

Several years ago, I ran into a convenience store for something no doubt of the unhealthy variety and was greeted with a large handwritten poster advertising "Supper Bowel" supplies. Yep. Both words. I haven't been able to think of Super Bowl seriously since.

Also, *squee* for Beautiful Katamari!

February 16, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterPunk

I think next year I'm cheering for the New Orleans Bananas. I even wrote a cheer:
Go Saints, we love you all! Make the other guys slip and fall!
.. rah rah rah!


February 16, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAmanda

That cake with the distended colon that you showed us the other day was a "Super Bowel." How about some Mardi Gras sunday sweet photos? Love your blog!!

February 16, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterLorraine

That's a pity, considering that the Colts' horseshoe logo is probably one of the few things that would make a great CCC. (I know, a great CCC is a contradiction in terms, like "jumbo shrimp", but still...)

February 16, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterBlue Jean

The Saints' logo, which should be a fleur-de-lis, looks like the bottom of a lizard!

February 16, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

I love CW more every time there's a Katamari reference. Naaaaaaaaa na na na na na naa naa KATAMARI DAMACY!

February 16, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterlaurapatt

The last one looks like a run over lizard. lol

February 16, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Was that first cake actually meant for a Rose Bowl party? WTH??

February 16, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

....sure envy you Americans your superbowels....

February 16, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Sorry, I also can't see images 1, 3, 4, and 5. I tried clicking around to give them a chance to refresh, but they won't.

February 16, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterjeff.w.mcclung

Forget the wrecks, is that first one seriously cut into four even pieces? Because that is my kind of cake... :)

February 16, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterLaurenH

Gee, thanks, Jen.

It was a perfectly innocent post until you made us lose THE GAME.

Awesome. :3

February 16, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Thanks for the laughs, for the bazillionth time!!!

February 16, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterBilinda

Awwww I lost the game :(

February 16, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterLawny

About the photos - when I get a stubborn one, I click on the big blank space and it either appears or I go to a separate page where it shows all the (sometimes gory) detail. Usually when I hit the return arrow, all the photos load.

February 16, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterLinda J-H

I looooved the Katamari reference!!

February 16, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

I love the unintentional pun on the "Superbowel - Go! Go! Go!" cake. Too funny!

February 16, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterStephanie

Are you guys aware CakeWrecks is one of the features on a piece titled "The Internet will watch you FAIL" today?

February 16, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterstrista

I like the Super Bowel mispelling better than the Supper Bowl. I have no idea where they get the e in bowl..but two pp's are more understood.

February 16, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterBuzz

That Super Bowel cake? Was from my store. I did not submit it, but I love that someone did.

February 16, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Supper Bowl sounds like a lot more fun than the real thing to me. I hate football. I live in TX so don't tell anyone I said that. They would hang me from the tallest tree.

The Saints logo looks like a cave pictogram of a lizard.

February 16, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterdenestria

Oh my gosh, I laughed and laughed! Thank you.

February 16, 2010 | Unregistered

I snickered up til "Go, go Super Bowel". Then I lost it. That odd brown looking thing in the middle didn't help.

February 16, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJerry

Don't worry, Denestria, there are others like you. I also avoid foosball like the devil. >.>

And I can't believe I lost the game because of a cake.

February 16, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJen

Cake #2 is one Snoopy would love!
It's suppertime! It's suppertime! It's suppertime! It's suppertime!

February 16, 2010 | Unregistered Commentercatchat105

So, my daughter wanders over while I'm looking at #6, the Katamari one, takes one quick glance and exclaims, "That's not a cake!" Even a 5 year old can recognize that a CCC is not a cake. :)

February 16, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAsh

I see a children's potty training book in the works:

February 16, 2010 | Unregistered Commentertjbmurph

Gah! That cookie cake just made me loose The Game. And I was doing SO well.

February 16, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterStacey

Someone needs to school the first wreckerator in the various football bowls ie. the Super Bowl and the Rose Bowl are NOT interchangeable! There are NO ROSES or flowers of ANY kind to EVER be placed on a Super Bowl cake:-P It's a crying shame about the first "super bowel" cake. Despite the spelling mistake (and the fact that the whole thing is crooked) it could've been a pretty cake:(

Finally, ya learn something new everyday! I wasn't aware that New Orleans was Creole for banana;)

February 16, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterCulinarychiq

One must perforce assume that having a "super-bowel" is, in fact, a "VVGT", given the number of wreckorators who felt it to be an important element in a cake dedicated to a football game. Or would that be a "footbowel" game...

February 16, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterBADKarma!

CRRAPPPP!!! That cookie cake made me lose the game!! I was winning for so long!

February 16, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSydney

Aren't there any Olympic cake wrecks yet? The Super Bowl is old news....the Olympics is on now!

February 16, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterjanet2buns

Is any one else wondering what the stringy black frosting is for on "The Game" cookie cake?
