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? ;)

Spring Has Sprung


Ahhh, Spring, when a young man's fancy lightly turns to thoughts of...




Thanks to John B. for the hare-raising peep at the original Playboy Bunny. This explains so much. 

(Like why the Easter Bunny never mentioned having a sister.)

An anatomically incorrect bunnie. Girl bunnies usually have a lot more nipples.

That's the most foul, cruel, and bad-tempered rodent you ever set eyes on! He's got huge, sharp... er...

Is that cake wearing tassels?

March 20, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterFluffy Cow

I demand a shrubbery -- one that looks nice and is not too expensive -- to place in front of that thing so I don't need to look at it. (And don't I feel stupid -- I always thought the Killer Rabbit of Caerbannog had pointy *teeth*.)

March 20, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterSharyn

Wow! That is so bad it's hare-raising.

March 20, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterKathy M

Rabbits are not rodents. They belong to a group called lagomorphs. It's like calling a tribble a type of Ewok.

March 20, 2012 | Unregistered Commenterpaul

Sweet Jeepers. The egg-nipple things I can overlook, but not when combined with that pose. Deliberate, disgruntled or dazed? Discuss...

March 20, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterBea

I cannot unsee this now! Kathy M> Ha! Hare-raising!

March 20, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterPeg D.

Hey, John B. - um...where exactly do you shop? Porn bunny confections?

March 20, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterSugar

So THAT'S why they reproduce like...well, you know.

March 20, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterSaraCVT

Wow. I bare-ly recognized the Easter Bunny. We have so many mammaries together, and yet, I hardly knew This is a hare-iffic snapshot of a bunny gone bad. I'll never be hoppy again.

March 20, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterJoemama

At least she has the decency to blush.

March 20, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterDiana

Do you know why does the Easter Bunny hides his eggs?

He doesn't want everyone to know that he's f***ing a chicken!!

March 20, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterCory

The pose is epic. Easy Bunny lol

March 20, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterChantal

@paul -- Yes, rabbits are lagomorphs, but the movie quote about the Killler Rabbit is, "the most foul, cruel and bad-tempered rodent you ever set eyes on." So it's less like calling a tribble a type of Ewok and more like quoting Captain Kirk splitting an infinitive.

March 20, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterSharyn

@ paul:
Shame on you for not recognizing a Monty Python quote and instead choosing to nitpick over details of taxonomic classification. ;)

And I feel like I'm going to get in trouble for looking at that cake at work

March 20, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterAmanda H

The question is not 'do you see what I see?'

The question is 'why do the bakers not see this?'

March 20, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterJoan

Bunny private parts
Total lack of modesty
Pas the eye bleach, please

March 20, 2012 | Unregistered Commentergrneyes6

Are those legs, or another set of ears? Nevermind, don't tell me. *shudder*

March 20, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterAndrea

Why do I see a uterus with a bunny head?
run away! run away!!

March 20, 2012 | Unregistered Commenterkrazymom

So, so wrong...

March 20, 2012 | Unregistered Commenterlisadh524

I'm trying to figure out how to un-see that.

March 20, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterGary

I, too, can never unsee that, and will be forwarding the two of you my therapy bills. O_O

March 20, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterBADKarma

Gives a whole new level of dread to somebody dressing up as the Easter Bunny to surprise the kids, doesn't it?

March 20, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterBeverly Diehl

Look at it upside down - it's like a cute alien with a bowtie....almost yoda-ish, in a bad-icing, oh my eyes sort of way...

March 20, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterDeb

A little piece of my childhood just died...

March 20, 2012 | Unregistered Commentermichelej

While we're quoting Monty Python....
If you'll notice, this applies....
"Look, you stupid B-----d. You've got no arms left.
Yes I have.
It's just a flesh wound."

And the pose....
"I fart in your general direction!"

With the title of today's post, I'm glad it's not a boy bunny! :-D

"Hey, Joe, I have to check out early; can you take care of this one order for me?"
"Sure, Dave." *reads order form* "Hey, wait a sec!"
"What? I really need to hit the road, Joe!"
"They want a picture of a 'Jessica Rabbit' on the cake. I don't know what that is."
"Seriously? She's a cartoon character. She's got flowing red hair and giant boobs... just Google it! Bye!"
"But, Google frightens and confuses me. Guess I'll just have to wing it. Giant boobs and flowing red hair on a rabbit... cartoons are weird."

Hippity hoppity...floppity floppity...

March 20, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterDenita TwoDragons

Wow. When I first glanced at the creature I thought we had a topless rabbit taking a poop. The squatting position...(when seen as "from straight on" instead of "from up above") and the little white piles underneath... I'm not sure which is worse, but I think I'll stick with taking a poop. The other idea is even more disturbing.

March 20, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterChenaya

Maybe it's upside-down, and those are it's little pink eyes, and the legs are really ears and ... oh... nevermind.

March 20, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterBets

Wait, will we see this image again on some farmer's tractor's mudflaps?

March 20, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterCC

I can't see anything BUT the obscene bunny...what was the baker's intention? Now I am afraid to take an inkblot test!

March 20, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterAmy W

Why does it have two flowing, equine tails? That makes about as much sense as giving a rabbit breasts.

March 20, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterJulie

What's he do? Nibble your bum?

He'll do you a right treat mate.

Right. Bors, chop its head off.

March 20, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterMr. Cellophane

Seriously, that bunny looks as though it is in a perverted position to me. Then the breast looking things don't help any. Just saying. Eeeeck, I don't know that I could have served that cake. lol

March 20, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterTerrie

...but what was the decorator *trying* to depict???

March 20, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterSusan

It's got great tracts of icing...

March 20, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterHelen

I like how Cake Wrecks keeps us abreast of all the latest developments in cake.

Now that I know that rabbits are lagomorphs and not rodents, I can complete my doctoral thesis on 'animals that hop'. Monty Python (not a real person, by the way, in case anyone thought that) also told us that there are building-size hedgehogs and sheep that are preoccupied with flight. To say nothing of llamas that can swim like fish for hours at a time, thanks to previously unsuspected adaptations.

Have a cup of Conquistador instant coffee and enjoy some very unusual candies. Be sure to visit the Book Shop -- the proprietor doesn't mind at all if you ask for a rare volume by Edmund Welles.

Well the easter bunny is a pagan fertility symbol....what more can I say!

March 20, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterMiriam

Love the Monty Python reference in this one!

March 20, 2012 | Unregistered Commentersadi

It's like an old saggy boobed bunny copping a squat in a forrest. So wrong on so many different levels.

March 20, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterSharon

genetic testing must be stopped!! either that or it's someone who wished they'd been turned into a newt instead.

March 20, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterBarbara Anne

It's incomplete. They left off the gyno-stirrups.

March 20, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterSharon

Makes me glad I'm jewish-you never see wrecked matzah cakes ;) to all those who celebraste easter, I am so sorry you had to see this D:

March 20, 2012 | Unregistered Commentermindy1

It has to have been intentional, what else could it be? I imagine some disillusioned man-child making dirty cakes and passing them off to unsuspecting soccer moms so that when he's hanging out in his moms garage with what's left of his high school grunge band he has something to brag about. (No? I'm the only one getting that vibe? Weird.)

I wonder if I could have kept a straight face long enough to demand an explanation from the manager. I mean, wont somebody please think of the children!

March 20, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterDonna

Eeek. Now I need to watch Monty Python and the Holy Grail again for that bunny lol. Man I won't even look at that bunny again for now it is stuck in my brain until I can find something less disturbing to erase it which isn't easy. Thanks wreckerators at least it wasn't a cross between a deer and a rabbit.. would hate to see if that has been done.

March 21, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterArlene

Tribbles aren't Ewoks?!?!

March 21, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterPamela

@Sharyn - Captain Kirk would never *timidly* split an infinitive! :)

@paul - Monty Python and the Holy Grail was set before rabbits were reclassified as lagomorphs, so in referring to a rabbit as a rodent, the movie was just being historically accurate. :P

@Craig - they also taught us about the dangers of after-dinner mints.

As for the bunny, I can't figure out what the cake decorator was going for unless it was to frighten everyone away from the cake.

March 21, 2012 | Unregistered Commenterhyphen8

I showed my husband and he said "Is that bunny giving birth"....
