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 Halloweenies!

How do I know these cakes want us to have a happy Halloween?

Why, it's as plain as the dongs on their faces.





My personal favorite:



And finally, ever wonder when your hubby's about to pick up a new nickname for certain regions of his anatomy?



Thanks to Jill P., Katie G., Alyson B., Patrick M., Melissa S., Stephanie F., & Dion H. for ensuring John never calls me 'pumpkin' again.


And now, your Moment of Jen:

The pumpkin face says it all.

Sung to "Carol of the Bells"

Hark how the dongs
Sweet frosted dongs
All seem to say
"Scare Kids Away"

Ding, dong, ding, dong

Scary, scary, scary, scary Cake Wrecks

I never noticed before that a drawn nose can look a lot like a penis. Very eye opening.

Sooooo....are these filed under tea-bag cakes?

by Robert Burns because who doesn't love Robert Burns.

Amang the bonie winding wangs,
Where Doon rins, wimplin, clear;
Where Dick ance rul’d the martial ranks,
An’ shook his Carrick spea (indeed);
Some merry, friendly,dongs
Together did convene,
To burn their nits, an’ pou their stocks (yup),
An’ haud their Halloween
Fu’ blythe that night.

Was he happy to see her? It was as plain as the nose on his face….

Just what is that third. . . . thing. . . . .anyway?

And I'll skip the Pumpkin Patch. It looks like it took a detour through the Poo Patch.

Sharyn thanks for the giggle XD as for the cakes, some of those have GOT to be on purpose...can people really be that ignorant?

October 29, 2014 | Unregistered Commentermindy1

So consistent....are those supposed to be nostrils at the base of those long, um, noses?

October 29, 2014 | Unregistered Commenterbassgirl

How do they not see that? I mean, seriously.

Thanks for the giggles!

How Victor knew that his creation really NEEDED a Bride.

"My Ding-a-ling my ding-a-ling"...... Are we going to eat that !?!!?

Little Red Hyperopic Hood: "My, Grandmothercake, what big EYES you have...and what the bloody hell happened to your NOSE?" I wonder how those wreckorators find a way out of BED! I'm almost sure that I could do better with my hands jammed into scuba fins, and both of my EYES tied behind my back! This gallops past ridiculous all the way to "Uh-oh, I think I'm going to vomit...Take the lid off that cake box! Quickly! Quickly!" (I have to admit that they're obscenely funny, and probably yummy, too- if you don't choke on a What say we move along, hmm?)

Ok the last one.... I know this was a "dong" themed post, but is anyone else seeing the ghosts as having giant boobs?

I was waiting for the joke about BOO-bies. Ha!!! ;-)

October 29, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterLauren

Gives "blowing your nose" an entirely new meaning...

October 29, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterLian

@SuBee: There is a beautiful granite statue of Robert Burns (whom everyone loves) in front of my old high school. It was created by the town's Scottish immigrants in 1899 in observance of the 100th anniversary of the poet's death. And I didn't understand a single word that you wrote, except for "wangs","dongs", and "yup". Good job!

October 29, 2014 | Unregistered Commentersendingtheclowns

@Lian for the win!

October 29, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterSuBee

I agree that the pumpkin patch one looks like poo!

October 29, 2014 | Unregistered Commentermymren

For the life of me, I will never understand how the dec...err...wreckerators do not see what we see. Or maybe they've never seen a One Eyed Willie In Real Life.

October 29, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterSue W.

I've a-said it before, and I'll a-say it again, I KNOW THEY SEE THAT!

October 29, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterAngelaS

The Pump kin patch, pumped out some pumpkins.

My Ding-A-Ling,
My Ding-A-Ling,
Some baker went and misplaced
My Ding-A-Ling!

Oh how I wish I could "like" these comments the same way I do on Facebook. You are all hilarious!

Upon reading posts like today's, I ponder whether one might not be better off as a Cyclops. Lacking depth perception seems beneficial, not to mention how quickly one might accomplish gouging out one's eye if there were only one needing gouging.

October 29, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterJust Andrea

I'd think the anatomy which gets a new nickname would be located where that signpost gets planted.

October 29, 2014 | Unregistered Commenterjbrecken

OK Lauren, here it is:
Q: Why did they call the ghost Cha-Cha?
A: Cuz she had big BOO-bies!

October 29, 2014 | Unregistered Commenterjackwire

Dangit Sharyn, IT'S NOT CHRISTMAS YET!!!
(I still giggled.)

October 29, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterStephanie

I'll give the benefit of the doubt to most of them, but that one with the worms HAS to be intentional.

October 29, 2014 | Unregistered Commenterkayk

Random trivia: The sign language sign for "penis" involves making the sign for the letter "p" and rubbing it down your nose.

Wonder if these bakers secretly all know this and are having a laugh... (which is signed by rubbing down your nose with the first two fingers of your hand... coincidence...?)

My daughter said the pumpkin patch one is a hammer. Lol... The innocence of a 6yo mind.

The Homestar Runner reference sent me over the edge.

October 30, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterErin Elise

Ah....human horn!

But the pumpkin face doesn't say it all on that last one....the cupcake "eyes" on the lower shelf do.
Kudos on the framing in that pic.

Someone poo pooed in the pumpkin patch.

October 31, 2014 | Unregistered Commenterkira
