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 Easter Bizarre

I know we've been seeing some odd Easter treats this week, so today I thought we'd get back to basics.

After all, nothing beats a nice, time-honored, classic Easter...

...loaf of bread.

Yep, Easter is now infecting spreading its cheer throughout the entire bakery!

Just look at this happy character:

Cocaine Bunny sez:

"I'm your monkey fighting FANTASY! Just check the tag." [sniff]

Other bakeries are endorsing bunny-cide in more...creative ways:

Because the Alien chest-burster scene always makes me hungry.

Speaking of which, this one gives a whole new meaning to "Alien face hugger":

When it comes to spotting Wrecks, he's all ears.

Next we have the traditional Trojan Rabbit:

Just don't leave it unsupervised come nightfall.

Thanks to Christine C., Sue, Bliss B., Ali M., & Shannon C., who think two Monty Python references in two days is just wrong. After all, everyone knows THREE is the number thou shalt count.

Trojan Rabbit!

April 21, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterGary

These are terrible.

April 21, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterThe Boob Nazi

Which is why I am grateful that this week is Passover. Matzah is looking pretty good right now.

Are we sure that's a Trojan Rabbit, and not a Trojan lamb (or even Trojan mouse)?

wv: sepende -- I would not sepende any money on these wrecks.

April 21, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJasini

I think the Trojan rabbit is disguised as an innocent Easter Lamb. But the message is still the same..."RUN AWAY!!!"

wv: berps Eating any one of these Easter creations will result in berps.

I'm so confused. Bunnies? Those are supposed to be bunnies? Have the laws of nature changed? Have we crossed the portal into Bizarro World?

Someone just tell me everything's going to be OK.

WV: phillyze. Just put lots and lots of phillyze cream cheese on them, and you'll never notice.

[And I want credit for the first Monty Python reference, days ago.]

The Alien Face Hugger resembles a pink E.T.

$25 for that "fantasy bread" powder covered rabbit? Really?

April 21, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterArtemis

Is it just me or does the "hugs" bunny ccc (patooie) upside down and just plain wonky?

April 21, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Oooh, that first bunny looks the idiot baker dropped a bag of flour right in front of him and ruined his nice brown skin.

sacrifice bunny looks pretty content and yummy. the bowl of dip in the belly is a bit weird....

and that Trojan Carrot us unnerving (love the leaves on the back) but why does the bunny have Princess Lei rolls by his head AND ears? Is he wearing earmuffs? is he going to explode something in there?

April 21, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

I, for one, cannot get enough Monty Python references...

April 21, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterfunderson

I think the bread has a serious yeast infection, and the Alien face hugger is really a monkey! Love the dip 'n' eat bunny -- gross to the max, and would look good next to the lamb cake from yesterday! And what's with the bleeding eyes on the Trojan Rabbit?

wv - beirs: Easter beverages made from fermented bunny hops

April 21, 2011 | Unregistered Commentermel

Well, five Monty Python references would be right out! Although"powdered" bunny would explain how it got to be a creature so foul and cruel, but I'm still at a loss on how it got such big, nasty, pointy teeth! :P

April 21, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJohn

I swear the "hugs" bunny said "Slugs" on it at first glance... LoL!

April 21, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterStargazermom

To be fair, the people did feast upon the lambs and sloths and carp and anchovies and orangutans and breakfast cereals and fruit bats....

April 21, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJHill

Is it wrong that I think the bread rabbit / spinach dip bowl is kind of cute? Oh, OK... I thought so!

April 21, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJenniffer

The veggie bread bunny looks really tasty. I just want to rip off one of his ears, dip it in his exploding entrails, and gnaw on it awhile. I'm also curious what his teeth are made of.

April 21, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

The wreckerators are expanding my mind in frightening ways. I never dreamed I'd have trouble distinguishing between a rabbit and a lamb.

wv: "moofiess" Perfect.

April 21, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterFlartus

is that a car made of carrots??? or just a car that happens to be growing grass?? LOL either way, it's funny stuff!

April 21, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterShannon

The horror, the horror D: D: what do any of those monstrosities have to do with Easter

April 21, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

These cakes are criminal. Easter brings out the worst in people, doesn't it? I'm almost afraid to ask if it gets WORSE. :D

April 21, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterBLP

I am so having the Exploded Belly Dip Bunny for my next party! My morbid humor loves it. I am a bit concerned about the hugs bunny. Is he going to hug me with his legs? Are those his legs? Would that hug be sexual harrassment?

wv: Derchon - even throwing some derch-on these cakes would not help.

April 21, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterKiriD

Oooo lookie at all the pretty "fun guy" colors!

*snort*...hey I'm giggling...what did you think I was doing?

Awwww he's kinda cute! I wanna pinch those little bunny cheeks right off and dip 'em!

OK, not cute at all! Hug? No way!

LOL, a Princess Leia Hairdo Bunny Carrot Jockey on Wheels!

wv: moialli: Luke trying to say "Mos Eisley" with a piece of cake in his mouth.

...Perhaps we could build a large CCC badger...

WV: lesse - Lesse how many ways these people can come up with to wreckorate Easter.

April 21, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterBADKarma!

I kinda like the disemboweled bunny dip bowl. Yeah...I'm a freak.

Cocaine Bunny. F-ing genius! So funny!

Four shalt thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the third number, be reached, then lobbest thou thy Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch towards thou foe, who being naughty in My sight, shall snuff it.
And thy foe is thy bakers, that insist on decorating thus, and yet provide us with everlasting mirth

April 21, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAllie

I am 99% certain that the dip bunny came from a Taste of Home magazine a few years ago. The teeth are almond slivers.

I actually think it's kinda cute. I'd eat it. The others - eh, not so much.

April 21, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAmanda Mac

Uh, that last one looks like Princess Leia's monkey's head on top of a Sandcrawler from Star Wars. XD

I have a party to go to this weekend and was just thinking about taking veggies and dip as my food offering for the party. Now I want that bunny "bread bowl"! It would be fantastic.

Hmmm, I wonder if I can find a bread rabbit before my party?

April 21, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterbelphebe

Cocaine bunny FTW!

April 21, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAdorably Dead

#1 Bread?! Looks like a bag of towels. I hope it isn't deep fried.

#2 Now we're havin' fun, BABY! ('cause white lines...blow away...)

#3 Ok, -10 for dip placement, but otherwise...? I'd eat it.

#4 Fancy writing on heart-shaped cookie, check. Place cookie upside-down on bunny cake, morphing same into... if it had sneakers, I could almost make a case for the red, hairy monster from Bugs Bunny (I'm sure at least 100 people know both the name of the monster and the name of the cartoon in question).

#5 The original concept for this carrot cake (ahem) must have made some kind of sense. They should have replaced the sheep / bunny with a baby, though.

April 21, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterCraig

YES, the bunny dip bread is from Taste of Home. I still have that clipping in my recipe binder, and I make the bunny bread every year -- without the gaping dip wound though. One year I gave it a jelly bean belly button. A jellybellybutton?

April 21, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterEmily Rohrer

That second last one looks like entrails. I just can't tell entrails from what.

But there's probably a uterus in there too. It's like a game: Spot The Uterus. No wait now that sounds like a horrible idea for a children's book...

Color me odd, but I think the first three rawk! I'd buy 'em.

That said, the last two terrify me to my very soul.

April 21, 2011 | Unregistered Commentermin

Wow. What did they do to make a loaf of bread look like play doh?

Hm, bunny bread dip. And kiddies, this is what happened to Peter Rabbit when we caught him and and his gang of thieves stealing again from the community P-Patch.

April 21, 2011 | Unregistered Commentermsyendor

I actually think the cocaine bunny is kind of adorable.

April 21, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAshley

Those are just terrifying. That last one looks like its been nibbling on brains since that looks like blood dribbling down onto his chin. I'd scream and run away from those things before I'd ever consider eating one.

April 21, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterBarbara

Carrot on wheels!!! And I have never seen coloured bread in my life! How different.

April 21, 2011 | Unregistered Commentertiny purple elephant

The first one (the rainbow bread) is actually pretty good... I used to purchase it when I could find it... Though that is the first time I've seen it like that. Used to be a swirl pattern through each slice. Was kinda cool and made for a fun lunch for the kids...

April 21, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterLissy

cocaine bunny?

more like Yeaster Bunny!

am i right? **nods**

April 21, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterNadia

Yes, the bread bunny with dip is from Taste of Home. I just happened to see it on the website yesterday when looking for Easter recipes lol. Here is a link to it:

Trojan rabbit? It looks like a lamb with white Micky ears!

That 4th one actually looks like some kind of demented sock monkey.

(Ah, rainbow challah, how I DON'T miss having to make you.)

April 21, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterlisagems

For $25 that rabbit bread better be covered in cocaine....

April 21, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterSoupAddict

The sad thing is that bunny bread with the veggies and dip is actually pretty cute :)

April 21, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Ok, the fantasy bread bunny would be fine if A) they had the eyebrows positioned so he didn't look like a murderous fiend, and B) he didn't look like a drug runner. The rest of the shape looked well done. Though I'm why someone would WANT bread in that shape is a totally different discussion. :P
