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? ;)

Curses! Spoiled Again!

Look out, movie buffs! 'Cuz these cakes are about to SPOIL.

(No, really, classic movie spoilers ahead!)


The kid's therapist is a ghost.

I see....


299 die.

Only one survives.
(Or would that be "eno" survives?)


Norman Bates' mother is not the killer.

Which is kind of a drag...


Darth Vader is Luke's father.



And it wasn't Jason:

It was his mom.


It was the Earth all along.

(And that's the Statue of Liberty.)

I would never have guessed.


They ALL did it:

But good luck keeping track.


Oh, and...

Soylent Green is made of people.

It was pretty obvious.

What the heck is "Jason" cupcakecake supposed to be? Golf?

The Murder on the Orient Express reference was a pleasant surprise, but I think the last one should have been Scent of a Woman.

A census taker once tried to test me. I ate his liver with a ccc (patooie!) and a nice jar of sprinkles.

And the eno cake is so well done, with the little rosettes and all. So close.

I know I'm really out of it today, but I don't get the Jason one at all. Can someone please explain?

“I put a curse on that cake. My sister is eating that cake. I put a curse on that cake that it's gonna explode, burn on fire and fall onto the floor. Fifty years ago, she stole a man from me. A summo ingenio, iuvenes scilis exornator! Today she tells me that she never loved him, that she took him because she liked his “cake.” Now she's going back to Sicily. Ritorna in Sicilia! I cursed her that the green, gloppy frosting should swallow her up!”

@TLC - I don't watch scary movies either. This site explains all the backstory to the Friday the 13th series, and I'm assuming this is the Jason vs Mom thing....

November 3, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterPamtha

Howdy from Texas @TLC. That golf ball(?) looks like the face of Jason in his hockey mask. Those black dots vaguely resemble the hockey mask holes.

November 3, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterAngelaS

For those wondering about the "Jason" one: it's a golf club, and a golf ball with a scared look on its "face".

November 3, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterMelanie E.

The Jason one is s hockey mask and stick.

November 3, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterJennifer

I thought the jason one was a hockey puck and stick but when I scrolled without seeing the stick or club whatever, it kinda reminded me of a bad cat in the hat rendering......

OK, yeah, I was really out of it this morning. I thought that was an arm with a flexed bicep, not a hockey stick.

I don't want to sell any cakes, buy any cakes, or process any cakes as a career. I don't want to sell any cakes bought or processed, or buy any cakes sold or processed, or process any cakes sold, bought, or processed, or decorate any cakes sold, bought, or processed. You know, as a career, I don't want to do that. -Lloyd Dobler, Say Anything (1989)

Look at that! Look how she moves.It's just like buttercream on springs. I tell you, it's a whole different frosting.

Lmao! I love the comments just as much as these wrecks. Boy the wreckerators out did themselves this time. Sheesh. Though the sorry I slept with your mom cake nearly killed me when I couldn't stop laughing.

Frances P - my first thought was also Cat in the Hat for the Jason cake.

Just when I thought I couldn't love you more, a soylent green reference! Reading your posts is like reading my sister's mind. You're awesome! (I tried to misspell that, but I just CANNOT bring myself to do it!)

November 5, 2014 | Unregistered Commentercara mia

Considering I dressed up as Norman Bates as his mother (complete with fake bloody knife) for Halloween, you can probably guess which of these is my favorite. :D
Although the Murder on the Orient Express one was a pleasant surprise, and the comments are GENIUS.
