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? ;)

We've already had the Golden Globes:


...and the People's Choice:


So now it's time for the Oscars! Yay!

(Since Oscar grew a nice pair of groobs [grouchy boobs], this will also work for the SAGs.)


Check out some of the nominees:


Thanks, Moomy.


The Imitation Game:

What does it all mean?


American Sniper:

Because America, that's why.


The Theory of Everything:

Stephen Hawking explains how all this stuff can exist on one cake at the same point in time.



I hear it's about a drummer whose instructor is a huge pain in the neck.




"Gobble gobble, motherf***er."

Sadly there can only be one winner, but remember, guys, it's an honor just to be wreckerated.


Thanks to Amanda L., Clairance C., Ingra P., Candy D., Leah McC., Amber G., Christie L., Emily F., Jenn A., Nicole H., Afton N., and Claire O., who all understood that reference.

Shouldn't that be, "Gooble, gooble?" :-D

That "Pick Me" cupcake is too adorable. I would totally pick it and bring it home to keep as a pet. Anyone want to make a plush version so that I can have it to snuggle and love?

Some days these things just write themselves, don't they? Hahahaha -- thanks CW team!

Hmm, I guess there was no good way to handle "Selma" or "The Grand Budapest Hotel." But "Whiplash" there gave ME whiplash.

Oscar the Grouch, also for the SAGS, BRILLIANT JEN!!, I laughed myself silly at this mornings post. Like I usually do. This is why I start my day with Cakewrecks. I'm a "Cakewreckaholic" and darn proud of it. Thank you Jen and John.

So it turns out Ash Wednesday is a good day to have a birthday! My beautiful daughter gave birth to the sweetest little 9 (!!!!) pound 21 inch little boy ever. Baby Kye Timothy is perfect and doing great. My daughter is having some complications so prayers and good thoughts are appreciated.

February 19, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterJodee

Bwahahahahaha :D you always find the perfect wrecks for the occasion XD. I agree wth LSUJacque the pick me one is cute in a sad wy :((

February 19, 2015 | Unregistered Commentermindy1

Are those double ended dildos on the whiplash cupcakes??

February 19, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterFluffy Cow

No, it's "Bird-Penis-Scrotum-Pooh-Face Man."

Groobs: my new word for the day!

February 19, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterTLC

OMG I'm on Cakewrecks!! I have been waiting YEARS to see the cake I submitted.

Jen - I'm still crushed that cake was too tasteful for the Xmas book!

February 19, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterNicole

Congrats, Jodee! And sending prayers for your daughter.

February 19, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterScaperMama

@Jodee: Congratulations to you and your family, and welcome to CW Kye (you've started reading him the posts and the comments, haven't you?)! Sending good wishes for your daughter, and keeping you all in my thoughts! Now, let the frosting flow and break out the sprinkles!

February 19, 2015 | Unregistered Commentermel

I love you so much for referencing The Bloggess. <3

February 19, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterTitanium

Maybe I'm still stuck on the idea of groobs, but Bird "man" there seems to have....goobs. (Gooble gooble?)

February 19, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterAllegra

Awesome! .....and yes, the turkey??? needs a name like Beyonce....because it will CUT you!

February 19, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterBrandi Mazur

Groobs made my day too!

@Jodee, sending good thoughts your way! Hope she comes through it easily and regains good health soon!

The Whiplash cake is gonna give me nightmares. It's good, bad, ugly, and scary all at the same time!!

February 19, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterJodi

Could someone please explain `The Imitation Game` reference?

February 19, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterMitzi

Congraduraltions, Jodee!

February 19, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterSuBee

I will be saying Gobble gobble, motherf*cker ALL. DAY. LONG.

February 19, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterHeather A

The "American Sniper" cake could be a clue on Wheel of Fortune! The question could be, "What might a BEAR have done in these woods?" Then, the contestant would want to buy 3 consonants and a vowel. Not a good idea? Then maybe they should collect their few thousand sprinkled shell casings (heh) and call it a day. I can't imagine how those hunter/bakers got licenses! =^0.o^=
Oh, Jodee! I just went back up and saw your post about your girl! Sending get-well sprinkles to your girl, and "Happy Birthday" to big-little Kye!

February 19, 2015 | Unregistered Commentersendingtheclowns

Knock, knock!

February 19, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterDarlene

TLC, you just made me laugh so hard!
Jodee, congrats, and best to baby and mom!

February 19, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterGrammar Gracie

Mitzi, I think maybe that it's just multiple submissions of the same cake prototype, AKA badly done icecream cones bedecked with moustaches. Bad imitations of whatever was in the cake look book.

February 19, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterJodi

@Mitze- It has to do with Joan Clark (Keira Knightley) serving as Alan Turing's (Benjamin Buttenbark) moustache. British women during WWII were too busy saving England to serve as someone's full-on beard.

February 19, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterSuBee

Wow, that dude's got some big balls.

February 19, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterChris

The explanation for the rifle cake could be snarky, but no, "America" is the only workable reason.

Congratulations Grandma Jodee! Keeping your daughter in my thoughts.

February 19, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterKnittedbooties

Oh man lmao. I cannot stop laughing hysterically which is making me cough like mad but so worth it. I swear these cakes are going to scare the cold out of me yet. Yay lol.

February 20, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterArlene Marie

Jodee, the best to you and your family!

February 20, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterNobodee Home

I guess I have an innocent mind, I see Oscar sitting on a blue pedestal and the "groobs" are his legs dangling down.
Geez, who makes "perfect" chocolate semi-automatic rifles in series?

February 20, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterAlison in Indiana

OMG for the WIN!!! forget the contestants, this blog post is the winner! I laugh daily at the posts and the comments...but this one, I'm in tears!! Love you Cake!

February 24, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterEricsmom

The one looks like the Earnest character where he's in drag, and she's in a neck brace... am I wrong?
