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? ;)

Happy Oreo Day!

This isn't a real post, guys, so don't mind me. I'm just popping in to say 'Happy Oreo Day' the best way I know how.

Ok, bakers, can we make this cake look like a big Oreo cookie? 


Er... can we just write "Oreo" on it, then?




And since this isn't a real post or anything, I'm going to balance out the wreckage with a big ol' Oreo Sweet:


By The Cake Gallery

If that were filled with actual Oreo cream filling I'd be trying to dig my way through my monitor right now. Seriously. That guy with the Oreo machine that removes the filling? He's, like, my arch nemesis. (And don't tell me the second Oreo machine is any better, because then I'll be forced to make a lot of inappropriate jokes about its cream removal method, and NO ONE WANTS THAT.)


Ok, one more, just 'cuz these Panda cupcakes are so gosh-darn cute:

From Karen Tack's book, "Hello, Cupcake!"


Happy Oreo Day, everyone!

Thanks to Kim K., Thomas S., & Lynn E. for making today Double Stuffed. (And also to my friend Missy for reminding me it's Oreo Day. WHOOPSIE.)

Jen, I love your not-a-post. Thank you for the happy surprise!

What cute pandas! And I want the second cake! Yum!

Frozen Double Stuffed Oreos are the best thing in the world

March 6, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterChris

I am pretty sure they are from the book "Hello Cupcake" by Karen Tack and Alan Richardson.

What do you drink with oreo cookies? Why, milk from Oreo cows.

There's a herd about 15 miles from our house.

March 6, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterSharyn

Why don't they just buy Nabisco Famous Chocolate Wafers?

March 6, 2013 | Unregistered Commenterkayk


There is no such thing as too much Oreo cream! I buy mega-stuffs - which are really just quadruple-stuffs... And then I combine them together to make what is essentially an OCTUPLE-STUFF. AND IT IS GLORIOUS!

March 6, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterKelly

And OMG the second video. OMG. So many jokes. My juvenile brain is 'sploding!!!!!!!!!

March 6, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterKelly

Seriously? An Oreo day? (ok, Google confirmed). Anyway, funny thing was when looking at the cross-section cake early this morning (8:30 am PST), I was convinced the brain was incorrect. Skull should have been filled with Oreos (and peppermint shakes). At least mine was when carrying.

March 6, 2013 | Unregistered Commentermsyendor

I am now imagining the wrecky possibilities in piping "Nabisco Famous Chocolate Wafers" on a tiny round cake.

March 6, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterHaiku Joy

Yes, Michelle is right. Those pandas come from Hello Cupcake, a really fun book if you haven't seen it!

And high-five to my fellow Oreo cream lover!!

March 6, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterMonica

I want to turn 16 again, just for the cake. (We can skip all the drama and jump to 30 after the cake's all gone.)

March 6, 2013 | Unregistered Commentermindy1

Those two guys have a heck of a machine. I'm pretty sure Urban Dictionary defines Bucookie as the condition of having received too much of the middle part. That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.

March 6, 2013 | Unregistered Commenterkhereva

Ahem... Perhaps Oreo MEGA stuff. Yup, I have 'em.

March 6, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterFluffy Cow

Flartus, I'd like to turn 16 again too, but there is NO WAY I'm fast-forwarding to 30! Twenty, heck ya! Twenty-five, ok, I'll go for that, but thirty??? If I get to be young again, I'm gonna spend some time enjoying it first!!! :-)

Panda bear, panda bear, what do you see? :-)

Hmmm...I see that Haiku Joy did not post a haiku here!

Oreo machine
removes creme filling? Oh no!
Beware, Panda bears!

March 6, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterKarateLady

The panda Oreo cupcakes are so cute.

March 6, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterLaura Saxon

Oreos + cold milk = happiness

Double Stuff Oreos + cold milk = giddiness

Chocolate Oreo Ice Cream in a still warm waffle cone? OMG I still remember that like it was yesterday and it was around 1991!!

(What the fern, spel chek? You're redlining "Oreo?")

March 6, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterBarbara Anne

Oh, my, I had no idea, and bought a package of Oreos at the store today as a special treat for the hubby and kids! (In my defence, there was a coupon.) It must have been the Universe, beaming Oreo pulsars into my brain synapses. Or something.

March 6, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterJasry

Clever machine, but can he make one to separate my peas and corn? I hate peas!

March 6, 2013 | Unregistered Commenterjackwire

Just popped in to say
This is not a real comment
Only random words.

Hurry back, Haiku Joy!

March 6, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterDonna N

Hurrah for fellow cookie lovers! Urgh to the creme filling.

March 6, 2013 | Unregistered Commenterneighbor57

Oh man. Oreos are my downfall. I could easily go through a whole package in a day and a half. To curb this, I probably haven't bought Oreos in 2+ years. (maybe 3) Doesn't mean I haven't had one, just not personally in my house.

And yay for bonus non-posts!

March 6, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterSaraV

Well that's creepy, I had a craving for Oreos today. And, like Sharyn, I also have Oreo cows not too far from where I live. I feel like I'm in an Oreo-themed episode of the Twilight Zone. :)

March 7, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterMelanie

You can make your own Oreo cream. It's just Crisco and powdered sugar. I don't know the ratio, but I'm sure you can figure it out. Have fun!

March 7, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterMegan

Sorry, Sharyn, but the milk from Oreo cows (a.k.a. Belted Galloways) goes to their calves. They're a beef breed.

March 7, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterMorag

There are Mega Stuffs? Sorry, gotta run to the store. Bye!

March 7, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterSharyn

Ice cold milk and a very Wrecked cookie, um, cake.

March 7, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterThe Former CB

Argh! Donna N has me beat - she's definitely a Haiku Joy protege. I'm just a Haiku wannabe... <sniff>

(Seriously though, GOOD ONE, DONNA!!! :-)

March 7, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterKarateLady

I miss Hydrox. :-(

March 7, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterJamie Jo

How did I not see this yesterday???? And what the heck is wrong with that guy that built a machine to take away the creme??? Seriously??? That's the best part! Only 4 hours until lunch when I can go to the store and find Mega Stuff Oreo Cookies! Wish me luck!!!

March 7, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterJodee in WA

Dang it, now I want mint Oreos which aren't sold until Christmas time! Stupid, impossible pregnant cravings!

March 7, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterJenK

Yup - the new Limited Edition Mega Stuffs are aaaaaamazing...*drool*

March 7, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterArwen

I'm just glad you didn't post a picture of that Oreo with the spider inside of it that has been making the rounds of FB! Ugh!! I cannot unsee that!

March 7, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterShannon

@JenK ~ If you have a Dairy Queen close by you can get a Mint Oreo Blizzard any time of the year :-) My 13 year old loves them!

March 7, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterJodee in WA

I don't know if you can find them stateside, but the ice cream shown here: seriously tastes like the middle of an oreo.

March 9, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterTiffany

I think the Sweet 16 is a Hydrox. A poor imitation, in my opinion.
