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? ;)

Make Like A Bunny...

Look, I'm not saying I've inadvertently created a legion of gutter-minded wrecky minions - I'm NOT.

However, a lot of you keep sending me one particular design of Easter cake, claiming there's something a bit "off" about it.

At first I didn't see it.

"Aw, what's wrong with this one?"


But over time...

"Actually, this DOES seem a little... huh."


[head tilt]
"Well, maaaaybe..."




Actual conversation between me and John:

John: See what?
Me: C'mon. You don't see it? Not even with that last one?
John: No.
Me: So you don't feel that bunny is, say, rising to the occasion? Bursting forth with glorious song? Losing his head?

[hopeful pause]

John: You're a sick, sick woman.


So for my confused, innocent, mind-like-driven-snow readers (and husband) who still don't see a problem: allow me to tell you the tale of Wee Willy Winkie And His Stripey Easter Sock:

He had one.



Thanks to Kim A., Bonnie S., Jessica R., Fiona H., Ashley W., & Anna C. for reminding us that the Fatal Attraction bunny is still worse.

Sorry, but I think you need to lie down. Either you are suffering from Hyperglycemia, or you've seen way too many wrecks for one day.
I do not see what you are seeing, except on the purple thing. Otherwise, they are all just horribly drawn rabbits with indigo bow ties that will stain your mouth deep blue for days if you actually eat that stuff. That is, except for the last rabbit-like thing with the misplaced extra mouth.
Now go take a nap.

Obviously, the first few were a corporate type offering....surely there isn't a zombie army of wreckers out there thinking in unison???? *shudder*

LOVE LOVE LOVE the purple one with the *ahem* sock. I would so give this to my grown son just to see the expression on his face. LMAO

I only saw boobs. but, still!

April 17, 2014 | Unregistered Commenteranon

These are the rarely seen, fabled Vesuvius Bunny Cakes.... (Once I ordered a piece of Easter cake in a restaurant but I had to send it back -- it had a hare on it.)

April 17, 2014 | Unregistered Commentermel

I laughed. Then I fell off my chair when I read Sharyn's comment.

April 17, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterTracy O

Okay, I'm not sure I see what you see. When I try to use my naughty filter (to remove the innocent and pure thoughts), I might see a woman reclining, with her hands under her head (elbows out) and her legs… ready for an occasion. And with blue mammaries protruding from her belly. But only if I squint.

April 17, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterDNA

Nooo, I don't rea-oh.......oooooh.

April 17, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterBella

I see no problem here.These are all appropriately designed lagomorphs.
I assure you, I have an extremely filthy mind and consider myself a gutter-minded wrecky minion, and I don't see it.

@mel-In case you didn't hear me groaning-GROANNNNN :D

April 17, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterSuBee

And the saga continues...

Wrekkies, wrekkies everywhere,
Falling off their comfy chairs.
Easter Bunnies and pastry porn
Leave us laughing throughout the morn.

Tried to make a limerick, but I couldn't find the right words for the rhythm.

Don't worry Jen, half of us were twisted and sick BEFORE you started this blog, we just happen to gravitate toward "our people" of which...I have to admit...You are ONE OF US now...

Unfortunately I saw what Jen saw. From the very first cake.

There is no hope for my mind at this point I fear. I've been visiting here for far too long.

April 17, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterGinger

I thought the bunny was heading into a Mike Ds.

April 17, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterSpecial K

Im not seeing it. This one is a bit of a stretch.

April 17, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterTed C

Hoo boy, I saw it. Blargh.

April 17, 2014 | Unregistered Commenterjoylovefun

The resident college student whom minds a few different preteen boys will now step in to say: PENIS!!!!

If you still don't get it, keep on doing what you're doing. I envy your clean thoughts.

That is all.

April 17, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterMicki

o_0 nothing to see here, kiddos.

April 17, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterDeeNC

Nope. Sorry. Just ugly.

April 17, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterChocolate365

I'm relieved that I didnt see it either.

It means my penis is long enough for your interpretation to not cross my mind.


April 17, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterBrian

I thought they were bunny boobs... until you made with the word play.

April 17, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterElizabeth H

Eh, to me the first few just look like crappy cakes, although i see wehre your gutter mind is headed.

April 17, 2014 | Unregistered Commentermindy1

Oh yes! lol, I did wonder if you were going for the sausage and two meatballs thing, and you were :)

keep up the great work, you make my day :D

April 17, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterMarie-Ann

Yep, that's my mind in the gutter right next to yours. The instant I "laid" eyes on Mr. Bun, I saw it.

April 17, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterKaren

Miss Paper, they definitely are mass-produced. Our bakery got a couple of cases of those predecorated colossal cookies in about a week ago. Sure, it saves us time, but no one actually buys them. They're hideous even when they're not deformed or smashed. They'll just take up space on the Easter displays, then end up on the markdown rack by Monday.

April 17, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterFiery

So... You're saying that you have advertently created us (your gutter-minded wrecky minions)? And I am not exaggerating when I say that Wee Willy Winkie is the funniest cake I have ever seen! His little face says he is quite proud of his little "sock".

April 17, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterCBushLite

Oh my goodness. I will never look at bunnies the same way again. Color me weird but I kind of like the purple thing.

April 17, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterBarbara

I still don't see it. I don't get the hints.Maybe I've spent too much time outside the gutter, but I've been staring at the pictures for some time now and I just don't get it. So could someone please explain it in simple words that can only be interpreted one easy to understand way? Spell it out to me, plain and simple! For me and those with me to embarrassed to ask.

April 17, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterCaffe

I guess I have a very sick mind, because I saw it immediately in my Facebook feed. Are those bunny ears, or a spray of Easter Joy coming from a short but enthusiastic member?

April 17, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterJen B

I still don't see what you see. If anything boobs, but not really those either.

What I do see is that some miserable designer sent these quasi Easter rabbit designs out to all the stores, leaving the hapless bakery employees to make something saleable out of them (and failing).

April 17, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterAlison

Ya'll must be fairly new to this blog if you don't see the "spewing man parts" with a "blue Prince Albert piercing"! (don't Google that at work!!)

April 17, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterLover of Cake Wrexxx

Apparently I've been around long enough since "Bursting forth" was one of my first thoughts.

@Brian ~ HAH! Impressive! wait... umm...

April 17, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterJodee

I don't really see the wang in question, but it's a dreadful looking rabbit nevertheless.

April 17, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterRP

I hear ya' loud and clear "Lover of Cake Wrexxx" The first thing I noticed was the "spewing man parts". They definitely must be new, or very, very conservative.

April 17, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterLMAO

Oh please, purple bunny is just spreading the word about testicular cancer. Haven't you heard about cock in a sock?

April 17, 2014 | Unregistered Commenteranon

I was laughing so hard at Wee Willie Winkie and his splendid sock that I didn't realize it was supposed to be a bunny. I thought it was a star or something and was completely confused at the white cupcake next to it.
I can see what you thought you saw for the others, but it's kind of reaching for it. *nudge, nudge, SAY NO MORE!*

April 17, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterFM

My mind must be deep in the gutter today...especially with the first cake, seeing boy and girl parts..."losing his head" indeed!

April 17, 2014 | Unregistered Commenteram

Yep, I can see it! It's ok come down and join us in the gutter! The water is warm...

April 17, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterKD

I'm with John; you're a sick woman. Whatever you're seeing, it obviously ain't a wabbit.

Bonus actual comment from Maddy, who looked over my shoulder: "What's that? Oh, a bunny. Why does it look sick? Or maybe it's holding grass in its mouth--you know, like a chipmunk. And what's that? Oh, the Easter Bunny is purple!!! And all fat from jellybeans! He needs to do some push-ups! (giggle giggle)"

April 17, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterSaraCVT

Dude, I sent you this one last year! I'm beginning to think you're not getting my emails.

April 17, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterBrooke

Well, that brought new meaning to the song "Ode to Joy."

April 17, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterE. Anne

@SuBee: Was that you?! Thanks! I'm in the process of creating a new musical form -- I'm gonna call it a sym-pun-y....

April 17, 2014 | Unregistered Commentermel

I'm pretty sure that in the name "Wee Willy Winkie," Willy is his first name, Winkie his surname, and Wee is an adjective applied to the person. That cake, however, suggests that "Wee Willy" is a nickname for Mr. Winkie, and an unkind one at that.

April 17, 2014 | Unregistered Commenterkhereva

I see nothing except in the last two.... I feel left out :(

April 17, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterLowla

In the top few if you turn them
Upside down they look like an octopus

April 17, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterMay

Please tell me that's not shredded carrot on the 4th/5th cake because that would just be nasty!

April 17, 2014 | Unregistered Commenternormajean

The last one is a basic instinct bunny

April 17, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterAngel B.

Oh man I so didn't see it until well I finally did. I am sick so give my poor brain a chance to catch up lol. Sick, evil wreckerators. Poor bunny lol.

April 18, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterArlene

The poem was written by William Miller (1810–72), first printed in Whistle-Binkie: Stories for the Fireside in 1841 and re-printed in Whistle-Binkie; a Collection of Songs for the Social Circle published in 1873. In Jacobite songs Willie Winkie referred to King William III of England, one example being "The Last Will and Testament of Willie Winkie” but it seems likely that Miller was simply using the name rather than writing a Jacobite satire.[Wikipedia]
I had heard that the Willie Winkie referred to an authority, William something, who tried to impose a curfew on the populace.

April 18, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterAlison

well, rabbits are known as prolific breeders. i saw what you are referring to IMMEDIATELY. although i feel sorry for the mrs rabbits, since those boys are a trifle.....short. and that female bunny is quite amazing.

April 18, 2014 | Unregistered Commenterdawn

There once was a bunny-shaped cake,
whose picture I wanted to take.
It seemed like a fact
he'd been caught in the act,
of creating an x-rated bake!
