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? ;)

Hang on to your inner child, kids; things are about to get ugly.








What the...?



[wince] OUCH.



Huh, I've never heard of Iron Man's "exploding crotch" feature before. Must be an upgrade.

Poor Leonardo looks like his face got run over by a steamroller! CCC are totally useless!

Spiderman had five penises???

That first one looks like it rolled out of Picasso's Guernica painting.

Must've been some party. ;)

Reproductive lesson of the day: possums have bifurcated (2) weenises, Spiderman apparently has a quintofurcated weenis

Spider Frog?

The look on the poor Smurf's face on the cake reminds me of the time I was a work and needed a graphic of the girl Smurf. So, I Googled "smurf." Mind you, this was about 2004, long before Google Images came along. To my shock and surprise, the third result on the list was for Smurf pornography. And no, I didn't click on the link because I was at work and I didn't want that on my brain.

Was going to comment on Spiderman's five penises, but RachelCrazyMum and Lorie have done so with such eloquence that I can't compete. All I can say is, this brings "does whatever a spider can" to a whole new level.

the kung fu panda was the closest to the original except for the scary facial expression.

I give the Spiderman baker credit for attempting forced perspective by making the hand look larger. Kind of like a PARTICIPANT ribbon.

I get the feeling the outline of the Smurf face got flipped upside down or something. But the baker knows how to work with fondant. Look at that rope border!

Working on my resolution to see the glass half full. With these bakers, that's about the best I can do.

Oh, rats.

Maybe the first cake looks confused because it has an EDIS complex?
The lettering on the Spidey cake means "A pox on all of your houses!" (Or webs, as the case may be.)
Panda needs a cakeopractor for that hip problem. (Or an eye-roll.)
"TMNT" CCC is blissfully unaware that it's about to be pulled apart.
Last, but not least, Kino's cake's "face" says it all, really. Love it!

My two-year-old saw the first ninja turtle picture and said, "Ooh a Ninja Turtle!" I asked him what the ninja turtle cake was and he said, "I don't know." ha!

'Must be an upgrade"= soup snorted all over my monitor....

Hey -- these look a lot like my "Draw Something" efforts. I am always looking for someone new to play with! Only those with high level decryption skills should apply.

Seeing phrases like "Iron Man's "Exploding Crotch"" are the reason why my inner child is clearly still in Kindergarten ;-)

January 13, 2015 | Unregistered Commentertheblackdog

Am I the only one who thinks the TMNT CCC looks like a cross between Leonardo and Stewie from Family Guy?

January 13, 2015 | Unregistered Commenterbookwyrm1216

Swear the first one is a love child of qbert and smurfette

The Spiderman cake was baked in a Wilton pan, which are the easiest cakes to do, and they couldn't even get that right.

January 13, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterCarrie W

I guess that explains why Spider-man's first name is Peter.

My inner child has just caught on to the fact that if it weren't for the gutter, my mind would be homeless...

Putting the MUTANT into Teenaged Mutant Ninja Turtles!

Poor Iron Man. Who knew that Tony Stark would create something that would make his crotch explode? Lmao. Then Spider-Man has five interesting looking apendages. Honestly where are these wreckerators getting these ideas?

The crumbling plaster effect on the panda cake reminds me of some of those National Geographic pictures of recently discovered ancient frescos from an obscure Mediterranean island. The figure depicted sort of looks like an ancient, mutant ancestor of both Shrek and the kung fu panda. The stuff of nightmares.

The first movie in the Spykids franchise (the good-ish one with Alan Cumming and Tony Shaloub) features characters called "Fooglies" who were former spies who had been captured and deformed by Fegan Floop and forced to work on a children's tv show. Clearly, Jokey up there did something stupid and got caught.

Peyo must be doing 1090's in his grave if he saw that unsmurfy Smurf cake!

January 14, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterBigg3469

All I'm saying is, anyone who hasn't heard of Iron Man's exploding crotch hasn't been paying a lot of attention...

January 15, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterJezi Belle

That's not Iron Man. That's Hitch in an Iron Man costume.

What just happened on the last one is his legs blew up.

The writing on the cake is Russian for "happy birthday." It's pronounced, "S'dyayn rozh-DAYN-ee-ye."
