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? ;)

To "I'm Alright"

Not alright!
Now I’m gonna worry ‘bout pee
Why you gotta give me a fright?
Don’t you touch that doodee!

Not alright!
Don’t wanna worry ‘bout pee.
You had to give me a fright
Don’t wanna touch that doodee!

Did what you like,
And you did it nat’rally
Pool poo makes me quesy
On that we can agree.

It’s your life
But it’s not your pool, y’see
If you’re gonna do your business
Get everybody’s blame

Not alright!
Now I’m gonna worry ‘bout pee
Why you gotta give me a fright?
Don’t you touch that doodee!

It's no big deal. Chomp. Chomp.

April 23, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterK10

Hahahahahahahaha - Sharyn, that was exceptional!!

Couldn't they have done these for the Masters a few weeks ago? (Cinderella story, outta nowhere...) Thanks for making my Monday.

April 23, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterHowlin Mad

It should be a Baby Ruth not a Mounds....

April 23, 2012 | Unregistered Commenterstephen

What on earth was that supposed to be??

April 23, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterMissy

But...the blue and white... the coconut. They're Almond Joy!

April 23, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterC

eeeewwwww!!!! lol

April 23, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterTerrie

Spaulding, Noooooo!

April 23, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterKaren

Giving a whole new meaning to "Mounds"... A little piece of my childhood just curled up and died... (SOB).

April 23, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterBADKarma

Pfffffffffft! Bwahahahahahahahaha!

April 23, 2012 | Unregistered Commenterleorising

I open today's page and I see the "daaaaaDUM" part, and just a tiny bit of blue cupcake. Scroll down, be thankful I didn't have a drink because my paperwork would have been ruined. RUINED I tell you!! Hilarious, as always :D

April 23, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterAmanda H

No offense, but everything looks like poop to you!

April 23, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterZeppy

What is WRONG with these people? Do they *really* just not see it???

April 23, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterJoan

Don't ask me why, but I thought you were talking about Titanic. I don't know why... there's, like, nothing funny it that.

April 23, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterSarah

I'm afraid I got it when I saw the first tip of the top right cupcake ... that says a lot about my childhood. :)

April 23, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterMorgan

Howdy, Doodie!

@Sharyn -- how do you make me laugh...let me count the ways....

April 23, 2012 | Unregistered Commentermel

What...was that going to be??? The mind boggles... O_o

April 23, 2012 | Unregistered Commentermindy1

And yet I'd still eat them.......

April 23, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterCarolineB

I know from Almond Joy, my friends, and THOSE are NOT Almond Joys! They are discolored and have some sort of weird glaze over them...? How old are they? There is no Joy in Wreckville....

April 23, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterAndrea

Almond Joy has nuts...Mounds don't!

April 23, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterMichelle

@Sharyn, perfectly brilliant!

April 23, 2012 | Unregistered Commenterzoomom

That HAS to have been intentional.

April 23, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterCakelover

I would eat that right NOW!!

April 23, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterJenn

Hey, at least they took the wrapper off...

April 23, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterSaraCVT

"Almond Joy has nuts...Mounds don't!"
Sometimes you feel like a nut. Sometimes you don't.

April 23, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterMollyBeBe

where thous for a pool party?

April 23, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterHolly

Toilet water...

April 23, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterPaloma

I'm going to give you a little advice. There's a force in the universe that makes things happen. And all you have to do is get in touch with it, stop thinking, let things happen, and be the ball.

For those of you that need a reference point:

April 23, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterCija Black

I think the baker went a little overboard when the representative of the Colonoscopy convention came in and asked for something creative for the luncheon...That's a Craptastic Creation you've got there- I give it a #2 on the scale of literal interpretations.

@Sharyn- *Clapping hands* Bravo! I will have that one stuck in my head for a while :D
@Mel- Howdy Doodie...I laughed so hard I have to give that one a #1 on a scale of, really, a #1...while laughing about #2s..... O.o

April 23, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterAmber

bwahahahahahahah- I just watched Caddyshack a few weeks back and I ALWAYS grimace at that scene.
I'd eat a Mountain Dew/Doritos cupcake but not those horrors!

@mel I see what you did there.

@Sharyn "pool poo" O.M.G. :D

April 23, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterBarbara Anne

I'd totally go all Bill Murray on those cupcakes!

April 23, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterBrenda

Caddyshack!!!!! Two wrongs don't make a right but three rights make a left.

April 23, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterDenise

That which we call a poo by any other name would smell.

@mel -- you inspired me with Elizabeth Barrett Browning. Howdy, Doodie was perfect.

April 23, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterSharyn

Here i was thinking Han Solo frozen in carbonite...

April 23, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterRepubAnon

And that is unfortunately my last name...yeah. Being a TA to a bunch of first years was always fun.

April 23, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterLdot

Is it a bad thing to reread the posts and laugh even harder the second time? *snort*

April 23, 2012 | Unregistered Commentermn mom

Lol cannot stop laughing. I had a feeling it was going to be a Caddyshack reference when I saw the cupcakes and doodie on them. Ugh. Wreckerators stop making nearly everything look like poop. Though it could have been worse if it had clown heads as well then well I would never recover.

April 24, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterArlene

i've been reading Cake Wrecks for ages, this is my first comment. I can't believe anyone would put something that looks like poo on a cupcake. Seriously?

April 24, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterDeniseDestini

Poo on the water?
Call A1 Sewage Service.
Our duty is clear!

I sure hope that's a movie reference. Otherwise, I am going to be required to make fun of it, and I've already been up since 3 a.m. making fun of student essays.

April 24, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterHaiku Joy

A Mounds bar is not a sprinkle.
A Twizzler is not a sprinkle.
A Jolly Rancher is not a sprinkle, sir. Perhaps in Shangra-la they are, but not here.
