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? ;)

50 Shades of Cake

Lemme see if I've got this right:




Is that about right?


Then again, some folks say it's more like:








You guys seen any good movies lately?

WOOT! Someone else knows that 50 Shades of Grey was actually a Twilight fanfic called "Master of the Universe".

February 16, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterLSUJacq

Now I am really glad I did not see that movie....

I didn't realize it was a foodie movie with flying bananas, over-stuffed green olives, and sushi ingredients. I do hope the just because Cookie Monster made an appearance that no children attended.

Thw worms crawl in, the worms crawl out, the worms play pinochle on your snout.

I have no idea what's going on in any of these cakes. Literally, no idea.

February 16, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterJoan

"Twilight" and baseball...oh, I get it: a vampire bat.

Cue Rihanna...

These cakes are bad and they're not very good at it
Dead fish in the air, and I hate the smell of it
Sticks and stones may break my bones but wrecky cakes annoy me
Just one night full of sin
Is that cake or dead skin
Yeah good cake is pleasure
These wrecks just can't measure

February 16, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterTheCreepyTribble

The only one I'll touch is the 9th one, because it was sent as a cryptic message. It means that Luca Brasi bakes with the fishes tonight. =^x.x^=

:-( that watermelon one ....

February 16, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterKat

You couldn't pay me to see 50 Shades of Grey. I know some people are obsessed with it, thanks.

February 16, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterLSUJacq

Oh my gosh. Most fitting Hand Banana reference ever. ALL THE APPLAUSE.

February 16, 2015 | Unregistered Commenterpearljammies

That fish… is it a real one or is it made of cake? Because, you know, since we saw saw real dead ducks on a cake, I am not sure of anything I see…

February 16, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterAthena

Hahahaha! That was hilarious! And with a minimum amount of words. Cake math, is the best math!

Nope, not lately.

February 16, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterErica

Okaaaay. Setting aside the compilation subject, I am still wondering what lead to some of these cakes in the first place.

So, the Vampires and the Werewolves face off in baseball's world series? One cake for twins with wildly different interests?

And a "hooray we made it through frog dissection" celebration cake?

February 16, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterCatTrampoline

this is the most frightening Cakewrecks post in the history of.

February 16, 2015 | Unregistered Commenterrolypolyducky

Awesome! Handbanana from Aqua Teen Hunger Force!

February 16, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterCandy

No more accurate a review of 50 Shades have I ever seen... A dinosaur-tailed lamb poop. My feelings exactly. You've expressed the inexpressible. Pure genius.

I would say the original concept of the book (& subsequent movie) is the first description, (i.e. a cash grab)
but the actual execution of said book (& subsequent movie) is the second description. (i.e. WTF is this s**t?)

Actually the entire 50 shades of gray "phenomenon" can be summed up with just the dog pooping cake.

This is an excellent blog describing exactly what's wrong with the 50 shades of gray "romance", specifically why it isn't "romance" at all, it's just abuse:
The blogger took the words out of my mouth & said them better than I ever could have.

For the people wondering about the baseball stuff on the Twilight cake: the Cullen vampires play baseball when it's stormy because their super strength makes thunder sounds when they hit the ball. (And yet neither bat nor ball are affected by this force...)

February 16, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterBrenna

Ok, all I can say is that these are the strangest cakes I have ever seen! I am drawing a blank at the green olive or watermelon thing that looks like it has a v jay jay with a really bad std.

February 16, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterOcracoke Dreamer

You could have just phoned it in today and put the "massive pile of dog-poop" cake as the first image and stopped right there. I'm glad you didn't though...Dedication to the cakey cause!

February 16, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterSarah

The "flying banana" is actually HandBanana from Aqua Teen Hunger Force.. It's not a wreck! That's what he looks like in the cartoon.. It's great actually! Lol

February 16, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterSteph M

Yes, yes I have seen a good movie lately. Go see Jupiter Ascending, being a science fi geek you will love it.

February 16, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterAndrea P

I dont normally respond but this one is too hilarious.
Cant stop laughing.

February 16, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterInge

Ahahaha! Hand Banana! "I'm just a dog"

February 16, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterNicci

So why does the cake that wants to look like dog poop, of all cakes, not have the icing that looks like actual poop?! The wreckers can't even get that one right!

February 16, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterStephanie J

Agreeing with everyone here that the book is a horribly written depiction an abusive relationship. The pooh cake works just fine.

February 16, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterTLC

Sure, Hand Banana, but what's with the watermelon cooter?

February 16, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterCraig

Oh man lmao. I am still sick and this is making me laugh and cough at the same time. Now I won't waste time on the movie. Just looking at these cakes tells me all I need to know lol.

February 17, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterArlene Marie

That third one looks to me exactly like what a baby shower for someone expecting twins would look like. The pink looks like what the babies wear, the grey with the round trim around it suggests bibs, and the chain means how much work she's going to have to do from now on. Best, most accurate and honest cake of all time!

February 17, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterQue Sara Lee

Dead fish on a cake,
Such a smelly bake!
Made it for my cat
Even she wouldn't eat that!

February 17, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterStiria_the_Fast_One

That fish is WAY too realistic.

February 17, 2015 | Unregistered Commenterteresa from Portland

I never thought I’d see Hand Banana on a cake. Now I kind of want one!

February 18, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterMike

just how many people are under that blanket, anyway?

Go to if you would like to read a VERY yummy review chapter by chapter of the revolting "50 Shades of Gray" rip off of Twilight. it is wicked funny snark. I wish she would do the other two books as I have NO intention to read that drivel. I like the poop cake, it describes both books perfectly. Twilight and it's plagiarized baby, 50 shades.

That's actually an ok Wu-Tang cake. The one that's a dollar I mean. The logo would be better though.
