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? ;)

Last one, I promise.

Is it just me, or does something seem a little off about this King Cake?

Then again, I guess that is where you'd expect to find a baby.

Thanks to Britney L., who thinks this labor of love is a real crowning achievement.

That is quite possibly the sickest looking cake I've ever seen.

March 9, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterKate

Dude, that is straight-up nasty.

When my husband was in basic training, the drill sergeant was harassing one of the privates about his girlfriend's - er, private parts. "If it smells like fish, private, THROW IT BACK!"

Please, please, please ... throw it back!!!

I've sat here with my fingers on the keyboard, trying to find the words to say. There aren't any.
Except you folks are funniest people on the planet, I'm so glad I found this site.

March 9, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterLynne

This is THE most disturbing thing I've seen on your site. AND that is saying a lot!

March 9, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterWendy

Every once in awhile, a cake on here will make me gasp audibly and involuntarily.

This is one such cake.

Just... wow. (And you thought the Louisicajeoles were offended before!) :)

Oh. I guess this is sort of revenge for the last two days of comments? This CANNOT be unseen. ;-)

March 9, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

I agree, it is sick and offensive. I gasped when I saw it. This wreckerator will definitely go to xxxx.

I... I... um... I need to go wash my eyes...

March 9, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterSandy C also in SoFla

wooaa a very anatomically correct cake! Yum...?? (I won't say anything else before it becomes R rated)

my word verification? SWIFI !!

March 9, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

I would say that this is the most desturbing cake I've seen... but I've seen the slong cake.

seeing that others have made the joke about eating this cake already I'll make the one about this being a suitable subsitute for apple pie.

WV: sming: a cross between odorous (smelly) and disgusting (minging). "That laundry is getting a bit sming"

March 9, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterScotland

Yuck. That's beyond tasteless.

HA! I decided to give up chocolate for Lent. (I know what you're thinking: "Gee, is it difficult being such a visionary / trendsetter / all-around unique person?" Answer: "Sometimes, but it's my cross to bear") I'm counting on you guys to help me through this.

Good start, too! I'll just pretend every piece of chocolate I see came from a lady garden!

March 9, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterNikki

Mmmmmm, fried tuna.

I cannot be convinced that was an accident.


March 9, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

I mean, the baker HAD to have done that on purpose!

March 9, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJessica White

I've been staring at this cake, trying to figure out something to say. So either two things will happen with this cake: Some frat boys will buy it or it will go in the reduced/reduced again/please somebody buy me shelf.

March 9, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMarie

I find this post offensive. Sure wish you hadn't posted it!

March 9, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterRobin

Okay - disturbing cake lol. Eww, ick, squick!

March 9, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJulie

That's just....



There are no words.....

March 9, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterOldish Lady

The adult female form of me is quite grossed out by this cake...but the 12 year old boy that often takes over my brain can't stop laughing!

wv: handaff. Whatever you do, don't handaff this cake at the church bake sale!

March 9, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

O...M...G.... WTF O_o

March 9, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Oh, dear! This looks like it belongs on an episode of Seinfeld. "Mulva Cake!"


March 9, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Oh. My. Goodness. That is plain & simply, Oh. My. Goodness.

where's the eye drops? how about some alcohol to burn the images from my mind? anybody?????

March 9, 2011 | Unregistered Commentersues2u2

"Fishy" - really? That's the first time one of your jokes has actively made me sad.

March 9, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Are they freaking KIDDING me? That's crazy-obscene. Thanks for sharing. ;)

March 9, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMina

It's not often the sight of a cake actually makes me physically recoil from the screen, but this did. That is...something else!

March 9, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterCaroline B

Fishy lady part jokes annoy me to no end!! A healthy vagina, should NOT smell like fish!! If your vagina smells like fish, see a doctor!

While I don't expect Cakewrecks to be completely "clean," I do expect more from you guys than a high school guy's joke. This is the kind of joke that virgins make based on old stereotypes about women.

March 9, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Lol, I am even more amused by the fact that the ad that popped up next to it was for feminine products....

You got me giggling like a school girl this morning!

Oh God. I saw it immediately when the page came up. Eww, ewwww, ewwwwwww!!!

As an adult female, I was also like "Nothing funny about this cake!"
But the 12 year old boy that lives in my brain and makes me giggle inappropriately at things like this is alternating between tuna jokes and snorting about the unicorn vomit description on the previously Epcotty wreck day.

March 9, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterElizabeth C.

Normally, I like seeing what CakeWrecks features every day.

But not this day.

That "fishy" comment was extremely offensive. There was a plethora of non-offensive jokes that could have been made about that cake (which is hideous, I'll give you that) and instead you went with the sexist cliche that "Girl parts smell fishy!"

I do not approve and I wish you would change the captions.

March 9, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterBSnellington

I guess that's what happens when you try to fit a traditionally round cake in a rectangular box?

Very anatomically correct. Maybe it should be used to teach sex ed in schools!

W/V: inederig - I neder igNORE the "I'm so insulted!" comments or I'll explode...

March 9, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterSDLantos

AHHHH!!!! Where's a Rainbow Censor Bar when you really need one?
