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? ;)

Where Dreams Come Through

Welcome to BisneyLand, the amusement park that's in no way affiliated with Disneyland, but is just as good - and cheaper, too!

Once you enter the gates of our mystical castle-land of joy, you'll be greeted by our lovely royal ladies:

Cinderallie and her clear resin shoes are always the hit of the ball.

Princess Yasmine and her flying doormat will show you a "whole 'nother world."

And TinklesWell the Winged Wonder is sure to be your day's #1 delight!

We also have fabulous entertainment:

Princess Areola and her pals Haddock, Skittle, and Captain Crabby Pants may prefer life "under the ocean," but they still enjoy singing their big musical numbers, "Check Out My Cool Stuff," and "I Can't Talk, So Let's Make Out!"

Kids young and old will love dancing with Snow Light and her seven short friends with beards:

They'll soon have you "Hee-Hawing" off to your own place of employment!

And don't forget Pretty, our good-looking girl:

And of course her friend Not-So-Handsome!

Together they invite you to "be our visitor!"

Anony M., Allison M., Clau, David I., Amanda S., Mona S., & Kristyn, how crazy would it be if a place like this actually existed? Oh, wait...

Mr Not So Handsome IS kinda awesome I must admit!!

August 30, 2010 | Unregistered Commentermzmclean

Those eyes on the first cake will haunt me all day today.

These cakes are actually an argument for plastic flotsam (in moderation, of course) for those girls--like my daughter--who insist on princess cakes. The choking hazard is much less dangerous than the prospect of looking at those cakes.

August 30, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterDeirdre

Anyone catch that the first cake says "Hoppy Birthday"? That makes it even better...

August 30, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterKatie

Hmmm... that Tinkerbell cake looks suspiciously like some bad tattoos I've seen floating around the web. Perhaps the wreckerators and tattoo artists attended the same school?

August 30, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAmanda Mac

OMG...are those supposed to be "hands" on "Pretty"???? *shudder*

August 30, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMeg

wow, I was on reader, and It said you had posted this two minutes ago, and already 3 comments!!!! I love this site!

August 30, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMJ

I wonder why the princesses in Bisneyland don't have noses. Is it some sort of weird inbreeding defect? You know how those royals are.
Lovely post. I shall think of you everytime I use the name "Tinkleswell", which will be often today :)

August 30, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterLynn

1. The first one said "Sloppy Birthday" before that first piece was cut. That's certainly an "O".

2. Judging by where Tinkleswell's legs start....her Who-Ha is showing. Cover up girl.

3. Mr. Notsohandsome is the bestest cake eva.

August 30, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSCHLOOOOP

Poor AManda! If only the Sno-Lite on her cake had some teeth! Somebody get this lady some choppers. And somebody please, please put some pants on Tinkleswell Good grief!

August 30, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

"Pretty" looks like it was inspired by Patrick Swayze in To Wong Foo.

August 30, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterShanti

Princess Yasmin shouldn't go walking out in the woods....or at least shouldn't fall face first into a pile of poison sumac....those blisters are painful!

WV -- oyarys --- I agree with the person above who said to get some pants on can almost see her oyarys!

August 30, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterCarol

I swear, the last one is that character from Land of the Lost, but I can't remember his name of the life of me. But it, and the one before it, are scary. Poor kid who got those for their birthday.

August 30, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterTrevor

I don't understand why they need textured faces. Yasmine has a bad case of the mumps!

August 30, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAmy

Good grief, "Yazmine" looks like she's contracted smallpox.

August 30, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterLaMaryKen

so following the link they all say "we aren't copying Disney" just like the Japanese aren't killing whales. What a joke.

August 30, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterRhonda

... Princess Areola. *snigger*

August 30, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterPolyrhythm

I can only guess that the wreckerators were trying to avoid being arrested for recreating copyright images of Disney characters and made them look like that on purpose.

Most of those ladies look like they've had too many Botox injections.

Tink needs some undies (where's that Barely There teddy?) not to mention plastic surgery and a bone specialist.

I couldn't even tell who the last female one was SUPPOSE to be.

Way to scoot around the copyright infringement!!

I'm kinda loving the Mr. Not So Handsome.

August 30, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterFluffy Cow

OMG!!! That link!!!! I'm going to be laughing all day!!

August 30, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterFluffy Cow

SnowLight looks like a Shrinky-Dink.

August 30, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterBeccy

Tinkleswell also looks like she is very klutzy! These are so wrong in every sense of the word, but so funny! I almost choked laughing!

August 30, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterKalendi

I spied Spongebob's very own Mr, Krabs on Princess Areola's cake! Awesomeness on a Monday!

August 30, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterDonna


Bisneyland princesses = strippers??
or maybe they're all *really* into plastic surgery.

i mean really, look at those faces!
no noses, HUGE lips, not a wrinkle in sight...

wait, is Bisneyland located in Hollywood???

August 30, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterRenee

Why is Princess Areola perched on top of a stack of pancakes?

August 30, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMoggypie

Wow. Just wow. I can't believe that park actually exists. o_O"

LOL, as always you guys make Mondays (and the rest of the week too) so much better!

Princess Areola looks like she’s on a “fireman’s hose” instead of a rock.

TinklesWell needs to cover up. Seriously. She looks like she’s had a little too much pixie dust and is just letting herself go. And what is up with her hands? To me, it look like they are palms up and her fingers are bent in a way they can’t.

Yasmine cake – didn’t know h’s & d’s had a line through them like t’s. Also looks like she’s had an allergic reaction to the Botox injections.

Pretty only has three fingers and no nose? Makes you wonder which one is really the Beastie.

wv: Versici: Since Bisneyland can’t afford Versace, they use a lesser-known designer: Versici.

August 30, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

I wish I hadn't just seen TinkerWell's nonprivate nonparts...

August 30, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

I'm still scratching my head on the Not-so-handsome. My only guess is that it is supposed to be really wrong. If so, it came out perfectly.

Those princess faces -- I've tried to make them, Wilton and all -- it never goes well when someone asks for lips. Never. The stuff nightmares are made of.

Please, save us - go for the choking hazard plastic flotsam. Some of those mouths could swallow their entire face.

"Mommy, why is Areola sick?"


August 30, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Is it just me or does 'Pretty' look more appropriate for a bento box than a cake? I swear her 'skin' looks like sliced turkey, and the icing looks more like mayo. Blech.

August 30, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAmanda

The fairy is Desperate Dans sister!!

August 30, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterdiddleymaz

That first one is from the Wilton Cinderella pan... professional bakers aren't supposed to be using the aluminum Wilton character pans, are they? (I've done that one and it wasn't easy getting that face right... wouldn't have let it go like that though!)

August 30, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

What's particularly sad is that you can tell that at least on some of those, real effort was put in, and it still didn't work. I feel kind of bad for those people. If they were amateurs then I'd think they were awesome for such great efforts, but the mind still boggles that so many people seem to be able to make a business out of such lack of skill. How do such decorators keep their jobs, or ever get subsequent orders?

August 30, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterKimberly Chapman

Yasmine should really see a dermatologist, that looks serious. And 'Pretty' looks like Lady Tottington from Wallace & Grommit: Curse of the Were-Rabbit. I'd feel bad for any of the girls who got these cakes :(

August 30, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterShinyGreenApple

Oh, Princess Areola - you've had way too much botox and collagen!

August 30, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous


Chaka - from Land of the Lost.

August 30, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Is it just me or does Tink have a bit of man-face going on. I know girls play peter are they flipping it and letting dudes pay Tink?

August 30, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMolly

One of the best entries ever! :D

August 30, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

This amused me greatly...especially the cake that had my name on it :)
It makes me sad that another Bethany somewhere in the world had to endure that cake.

August 30, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterBethany

Princess Yasmine should be the mermaid. She looks like a fish already!

August 30, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMaru

These princesses need to stop with the collagen injections! Holy cow, how much bigger can their lips get?

WV: Expla. As usual, there is just no way to expla these wrecks--they defy all reason.

August 30, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJulie

Jasmine looks like she had a lot of pimples... and on her lips too!

August 30, 2010 | Unregistered Commenter愛 - ちゃん

Is Snow Light's face melting because she looked at the Ark of the Covenant?

August 30, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterde Pizan

Have the princesses been going to the same plastic surgery? And TinkerWell looks more like Tonya Harding.

August 30, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterBree

The mermaid-esque one looks creepily like Katharine Hepburn!

August 30, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterCelloShots

Princess Areola! ROFLLLLLL!!!!

August 30, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterBrat

tinkle-bell made me laugh,
snow-white made me cry,
belle and arielle made me fall off my chair..

Edible images are now available, simply print and place on cake..

did anyone else think that the snow white, was the wicked step mom wearing snow's clothes...

August 30, 2010 | Unregistered Commentertiny purple elephant

Princess Yasmine looks like she has mumps!

August 30, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterRebecca F.

Does Snow Light have 5 o'clock shadow?

August 30, 2010 | Unregistered Commentercamcraftymom

Whoa. I'm not the biggest Disney fan but these make even me wince. I think Snow Whatever-her-name-is needs a shave...looks like she's got an unfortunate case of 5 o'clock shadow. Pretty is actually the best of all, but is still pretty (ha) wrong.

The rest are the kinds of things that make little girls cry.

And Fake-Chinese-Disneyland is hilarious. Scary, but hilarious.
