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? ;)

The Super Bowl of Sunday Sweets!


Awww yeah, Cake Wrecks fans, we are NOT going to disappoint on this Super Bowl Sunday! Granted, the three of us know as much about football as we do Japanese ventriloquism, but we wouldn't dream of featuring non-Super Bowl-related cakes on such an auspicious occasion. In fact, today we're going the extra mile and celebrating the entire list of playoff teams with amazing Sweets. Booyah!

First, remember in the playoffs when that guy from the Patriots was all like, "I've got the ball and I'm running toward the goal with it!!"


by Cake Creations by Lisa




Or when that other guy was all, "We're in a team called the Colts! And we're gonna win!"


by Bake Me a Cake



But golly, we were all thrown for a loop when those Jets hit the court!



by Caryn's Cakes



And when they went up against those Falcons, boy... we never could have predicted that thing that happened at that one point there.



by Michelle Cakes




But my favorite part of the playoffs was when that one team fought against the Bears, and the ball went over there and everyone SCREEEEAAAMED!!!

by Layers of Love




And then the Chiefs drove up from that place the Chiefs are from and took the field with a vengeance!

by Doodle Cakes




Yep, football really is the best, right? I mean, it's like magic when the Seahawks hit the ice!



by Naera



And then, oh SNAP! The Ravens came out of nowhere and were at the 40 yard line... the 30... the 20...



Yeah. That's SO Raven.



And the Saints, of course, will hear no evil, see no evil, AND speak no evil against a game as bananas as this. AM I RIGHT?!?



By Andi Cakes






But it was really getting down to the wire when the Eagles came into play. They began to take it easy, and I can't tell you why, but it was like hell froze over! They made the long run and began to take it to the limit!



By the Disneyland Bakery. We think.




And then it all came down to two teams... the Packers and the Steelers.

Man, the Packers traveled all the way from Boston to go head to head against the Milwaukee Steelers.



by Pink Cake Box



But the Steelers were all like, "We're not gonna lose, no way!! We're gonna take that round thing and run until the guy in black and white blows his whistle!"



by The Cake Company: Warrington


Will the Steelers steel themselves to steal a victory? Only time will tell. And 'til then, we'll just keep cheering on our favorite team.

February 6, 2011 | Unregistered Commentertarichuck

AWESOME! One of my fave SS posts ever!!!

First, I NEED that patriotic cake for my next birthday (July 4, in case you were wondering.)

Second, I just did NOT see the Falcon cake coming at all. :)

Third, my DS flipped at the Master Chief Cake. His expression was priceless.

February 6, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAmanda Mac

February 6, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterKim h

Wow. I learned so much about football!

Also I loved the horse cake

February 6, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterjday129

February 6, 2011 | Unregistered Commentermaggie grace

SO funny! I barely know anything about football myself but I LOVED this post. Very funny.

February 6, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterChocolatier

Wow - that was awesome! :)

This was 852 kinds of awesome.

February 6, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterhappygeek

Two words... AWE-SOME! Halo, Star Wars, Winnie the Pooh, patriotic stars, pretty horses and a cute lil' Bobbie arresting a burgler?

It is too much... my brain went all splody!

February 6, 2011 | Unregistered Commentercq75

Funniest post yet. Nice one! x

February 6, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

This is hilarious! Great post!! BTW Go Pittsburgh Steelers!!!

February 6, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterRusty

He he he! Funny you should mention Japanese ventriloquists...that is a long time family joke for us! Anyone can be a Japanese ventriloquist...not much need to move your lips when speaking Japanese! LOVE IT!!! Love your blog!

February 6, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterYamada

Wow that was an amazing millennium falcon...and totally random, which I loved. And those little monkeys and their teensy little bananas! So cute! But the best part? I was so confused as to why there was a hotel cake after the Eagles reference. Then I scrolled down and read the caption. Cue insane laughter and strange looks. So good. Also one of my favorite songs, so bonus! Well done!


February 6, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterjebus llama

That Colts cake was INCREDIBLE! Sculpture at its finest!

February 6, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterBryna

You are soooo clever.

February 6, 2011 | Unregistered Commentershelley

One of the best super bowl posts ever! definitely going to facebook post!

February 6, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterVeggieT

Best. Post. Ever.

And mmmmmmm....edible Millenium Falcon.

February 6, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterChristieLea

All terribly cute, but I am slightly confused by the random layer of Baroque Angels in the middle of the "Colts" cake.

February 6, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterTableforTwo

*Scooby laugh*

You know I just learned the word "bobbie" (which my firefox spellcheck apparently doesn't acknowledge as a word, silly old spellcheck) a couple of weeks ago. Now I sort of want to use it everywhere.

Look at that bobbie on the side of the road! Man that was a rude bobbie wasn't it? Hey! Just met a guy called Bobby. He's a bobbie.

February 6, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterGreen

I tried to be grouchy about the lack of actual football, I really did. But those cakes are all so utterly gorgeous that I simply can't be upset about it. These are truly some of my favorite Sweets ever - they're all just stunning. I love the Pooh Bear cake and the Saint monkeys are precious. The Colt cake is possibly my absolute favorite EVER, though. I seriously might print it out an hang it on my wall because I know it will make me smile every time I see it without fail.

Maybe we could get some actual football Sweets for the college season next year, though, pretty please? ^_^

Go Steelers!

February 6, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterLillian_Potter

LOL. This is priceless!

Fave part: "I mean, it's like magic when the Seahawks hit the ice!"

It is, it is.

OMG, you crack me up!! Now this is MY kind of Super Bowl post! Love. It.

February 6, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterDucky

That British police cake is simply adorable.

February 6, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

SILLY OLD BEARS! For the win! Took me a while to figure out the Eagles one, but ones I read the caption at the bottom, I understood.

February 6, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterUnknownWarrior33

Your play on words was brilliant! Thanks for the laughs.

February 6, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAmanda

hah! Punnier than usual, good job.

And ohmygosh.....the cherubs and horses!! How did they do that?! Awesome.

For a minute, I thought my sister wrote this. I love her dearly, but she knows as much about football as I do about a Mac.

February 6, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

"Man, the Packers traveled all the way from Boston to go head to head against the Milwaukee Steelers." I'm not sure if you just messed up by saying the Steelers come out of Milwaukee or it was intentional. If it's intentional then I don't get it.

Otherwise, the cakes and commentary are absolutely fantastic. Well done.

February 6, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMarie

the winnie the pooh cake is absolutely delightful! and the hear-see-speak no evil cupcakes are adorable as well.

If only real football was as entertaining. ;) The Millenium Falcon and the picture of Raven cracked me up! Great job guys.

wv: conlicks -- I conlicks the frosting bowl?

February 6, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJill

Best. Football. Post. Ever!

But I'm waiting for the impending Epcot because you said the Steelers are from Milwaukee. Silly Number 1...everyone knows they're from Detroit.

February 6, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAllison

You know as much about football as I do! Completely awesome post. Truly! And I see you have another Doodle-cakes cake in there - sublime. Every young boy (and some not so young ones will know exactly what that is!). Love her stuff! Lots of talent in a single post. Brava!

Bahaha! Falcons. Ha.

The Pororo cake is rather nice. :O And the Pooh one!

February 6, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAshira deSembre

these are two all-around beastly teams. neither team has a weakness. both deserve to be in this game. but if I had to bet on one, I'd say that Packers will win.I respect the Steelers,they beat every team fairly and did a great job, but due to the past games, I think the Packers are just unstoppable right now.

February 6, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAtlanta Roofing

I love your blog; it's the only one I actually read every day. At one point in my life, I was a cake decorator, so the technical details for the Sunday Sweets never fail to amaze. I'm a big sports fan who used to work for a team as the retail buyer. I've ben waiting for your Super Bowl Sunday Sweets, because I know there are some really awesome decorators out there who can do really creative work with football cakes. While your commentary was great (as always), I am really disappointed that there were no real football cakes today. That's like doing a Sunday Sweets during Comic Con that revolves around sports logos. Some of your fans really ARE sports fans, too, and look forward to "our turn," even if our particular team choked and died early in the season. I guess there's always next year...

February 6, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

re Kim h: The Chiefs cake is a helmet
from the video game Halo 3. I'm not an expert on Halo 3, as I've never played it, so maybe someone who knows more about the game could help us out.

February 6, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

I hope we don't have another Epcot on our hands with this post.

That said, I appreciate this greatly. I hate football so this is awesome for me. :D

February 6, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterSyldoran

This is Puppy Bowl Sunday. Is there also a football game today?

February 6, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterBrooke

I found this post a bit annoying. It seems weird when someone freely admits to having no interest or knowledge about a topic but decides to 'participate' in said topic anyway. The results often turn out such that you are trivializing something that other people really care about.
I'm sure you wouldn't be completely happy if Troy Polamalu (plays for the Steelers) announced that he thought cakes were dumb and then began a cake judging blog

February 6, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMichael

Awesome, awesome post. The string of Eagles references was amazing, and the Falcon cake--glorious!

And I also know next to nothing about football, so glad to know I'm not alone! (your commentary reminded me of a line from the Big Chill, "The guy in the hat did something terrible.")

February 6, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterSara

Come on Manchester United! Oh wait, hang on, wrong football.
