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? ;)

Thursday Favs 3/26/15

I'll be celebrating a special holiday here tomorrow, so Friday Favs has been bumped up to Thursday!

Isn't that great news, "Demon Dog For A Five-Year-Old?"

::gutteral snarling::

Aw, I guess he can't hear me over all the screaming.


Actually, looks like it's been a pretty rough week all 'round for 5-year-old girls:

Can YOU say, "creepy anatomical inaccuracies?"


'Cuz I'd like demon dog back, please. [shudder]


If I told you someone ordered "Congratulations Cub Scouts, Pack 47" on a cake, which of those words do you think most likely to be misspelled?

You guessed wrong.
(I'm guessing.)

It is, in fact, every word except that one:

"Club Scott Pac 47."



Two wrongs may not make a right, but two rights DEFINITELY make this wrong:

[give it a second]


You'll gladly foot the bill for that one, though, after I show you this:

Demon Dawg scoops his own poop and carries it home with him on his back. How considerate.
And I do hope no one in that Cub Pack is named Scott, because he's going to be attacked by the other 46.

Looks like Dora is either practicing for her OBGYN appointment, or she's auditioning for the Disney Cartoon Girl's Gone Wild Tour.

If you're born with two right feet, does that mean you're a really *good* dancer?

March 26, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterSharyn

That gives a completely new meaning to the term "jelly baby".........

*goes to wash eyes out with bleach*

Why...why why why? Why did someone make a pregnant belly jello fetus cake? Who said, you know what would be a great idea? One of those pregnant belly cakes everyone hates. But you know what, let's take it a step further. Let's make a little fetus! And a jello belly! And have the fetus in the belly, so when we cut the cake, you're EATING a tiny little baby in amniotic fluid! And where it attaches to the sponge cake is the placenta! GENIUS!

Who honestly thought that last cake was a good idea? I think I'll have NO PROBLEM staying on my diet for a least the rest of today.

March 26, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterLady C

Good golly girl, put on some underpants! Did you learn nothing from all those grown-up-child-stars-getting-out-of-cars pictures? (To make it less creepy, let's all remind ourselves Dora would be 21 years old this year, shall we? Nope, not helping.)

March 26, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterAngelaS

that last cake is so, so disturbing.

March 26, 2015 | Unregistered Commenterlittle mouse

The more I think about that Dora cake, the more awful and creepy it gets. It will end up being one of those bad things I can't unsee.

March 26, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterAngelaS

The last one...seriously, whyyyyy!?!?

My sister's housekeeper made her one and the boob covering kept slipping off. Just awkward.

March 26, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterRuthie

FWIW, "Demon Dog" is the literal translation of "InuYasha."

March 26, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterClassic Steve

Look like Dora was animated by one of those bootleg animation studios!!
And that last cake....😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱

March 26, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterBigg3469

I rather like the small delicately placed pile of poop on the dog's rump...>.<

March 26, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterSugaMama

I think the only solution to this cake would be an old priest and a young priest. Shudder...

March 26, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterCatherine

Omg that last one D: save my eyes

March 26, 2015 | Unregistered Commentermindy1

I had no idea Dora was so limber. "Can you say 'contortionist'? I knew you could."

March 26, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterSaraCVT

Since when is CAKE supposed to give you nightmares? Cake is supposed to be what you eat to calm down after you've had a nightmare. (Well, I'm not sure that's the exact purpose of cake. Certainly not the only purpose of cake. But I'm pretty dang sure one of the purposes of cake is not to make you run away screaming and never want to eat cake again!)

March 26, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterSandy

David Bowie's song, Diamond Dogs comes to mind.

March 26, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterNancy

I think what's worst about the last cake, is that it's not a wreck. It came out exactly as they intended. Ugh.

March 26, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterJasini

Just an updated Mardi Gras king cake! LOL Miserable

March 26, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterLinda

I think Dora was turned into a puppy, to better play with Demon Dog.

March 26, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterElissa

I guessed they would spell 47 wrong. My misstake :-) And that last babycake. What was that baker or whoever ordered it thinking?!?!?! *shudder* Who thinks of putting a embryo in jello in a cake. Wow, that's one disturbed mind...

March 26, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterTala

I missed the poop on Demon Dog's back because I was so fixated on the ants in his mouth. WTH???

March 26, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterFM

Oh yes, please give me demon dog with poop for a tail over many of these cakes (I'll just unfocus my eyes while trying not to club Scott and it's not half bad).

March 26, 2015 | Unregistered Commenteramy w

Not gonna lie. The boobs on those cakes make me feel inadequate, though through hard work and determination I now have a relatively thick gelatinous layer on my gut.

Any pizza can be a personal pan pizza if you try hard and believe in yourself.

The more you know.

That last one is actually pretty impressive. If the goal was to depict an evil alien or demonic presence inside an artificial structure masquerading as a pregnant woman. "OPEN THE PORTAL. I WILL GAZE UPON MY SUBJECTS!!" There's a *click*, then the belly splits and slowly opens...

March 26, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterJoel Polowin

Oh, Jen...why did you put that HORROR last? Now we all need eye and brain bleach! Why? What? The? Heck? Were? They? THINKING??? Wrong on so many, many levels. WHOSE idea? What twisted person EVER thought that would be a good idea? Okay, rant completed.

@FM; I KNOW!!! Why are there ants on the dogs face? I thought the poop on it's back was supposed to resemble the curly tail of a pug, actually, the color and general shape are rather "pug-like" so I am guessing that's what they were going for...see how I said "guessing" and not that other word that means to infer but starts with an "a"...

Oh my!!! Poor Scott...his last Boy Scout gathering ended tragically, it all started with an ironic error on a cake...

I understand that CCCs (patooie!) can be a difficult configuration at times, but to give Dora only three limbs instead of four, and one side of her body could be used to smooth concrete it's so flat...poor Dora

Maybe there are two babies stuck in the baby butt cake with two right feet??? NO? Yeah, I was reaching...

Keep Cake and Carry On ...erm...well, it sounded better in my head...

March 26, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterVaBeach alemaP

I'm glad no one was around to see my face when that last one came up (I'm at work, shhhhh). I barely held in my screams

March 26, 2015 | Unregistered Commenterfostersu

Is that last one actually cake? I don't see anything even vaguely cakey. It looks all shiny, rubbery, and foam carpet paddingy. Did anyone actually eat any of that!?!?!? (Violent shuddering) Or was it just to scare the guests with?

March 26, 2015 | Unregistered Commentermel

I think people who order that baby shower cake also order SoapWrecks:

March 26, 2015 | Unregistered Commentersue

That is just Horrifying!!!! DemonDog is funny, but that last "baby" makes my flesh crawl.

March 26, 2015 | Unregistered Commenterdeb in atlanta

I'm not eating that! And it's not even Cake! Yikes!

March 26, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterKathleen

#4 is nuts. There's no excuse! I even overheard the wrecorator saying, "That's all we had LEFT" -which was obviously an out and out lie. The last head must be really "out there"...The first thing that came to mind were two different scenes from "2001: A Space Odyssey": the "trippy" one in which a fetus is shown, and the one that shows the astronaut spinning off into about cold chills. Oh, and my funny bone took a direct hit with Jen's "Club Scott Pac 47. [salutes]" Crazy. I'm not sure that I was always aware of the timing factor on some of these posts...It's priceless. =^-.-^=

I was up til 8 am with a "rumbly in my tumbly," so I approached this site cautiously today. When I saw the first photo, I thought: "OK, I can do this. No gross baby cakes."

And then I read. And scrolled.

And my tumbly is ready to rumbly again. 😱😱😱😨😨😨

The only knowledge I have of pregnancy is what they taught in Biology, but that seems to be a very small baby for that size belly. And is Dora the before picture of the pregnancy cake? It could be the new ad for contraception: if you girls make like Dora, this is what happens. Pretty sure that would end teen pregnancy forever!

March 26, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterStiria_the_fast_one

Well, how about that... Subee: you probably won't even see this, because it's later in the day, but I was just scrolling down through the comments again (I don't want to miss any!), and I noticed a funny thing: the lines in your comment come together just right for the negative-space to form an outline that resembles the profile of Richard Nixon...facing to the left.
(I swear I'm certifiable...)

March 26, 2015 | Unregistered Commentersendingtheclowns

That last cake appears to be made out of the same goopy material that you would stick your hand in to make the mold to pour in the plaster to make a copy of your hand.

March 26, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterDances with Lasagna

Wow, that last cake
Couldn't they find a "baby" that was a more proportionate size? If you've got a belly like that, your baby is probably bigger than a naked mohawk carrot jockey baby.

March 26, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterLizzy

OMG, despite the fact that my eyes are bleeding from the rubber-baby-buggy-bumper cake...the "two right feet" cake, is that supposed to be BABY ASS sticking out of the blanket? Between the two right feet and the blankie? Baby Buns?

Sheesh. I'm sorry, but I'd take Demon Dog over the Baby Ass or the Baby Belly any day. ANY DAY.

March 26, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterHitch

Placenta is Latin for cake, from the Greek πλακοῦς, a flat cake.

March 26, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterCandice

Wow that last cake has made me want to stare at Sunday Sweets for at least a month lol. So creepy. I hope I can sleep tonight lol.

March 27, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterArlene Marie

Maybe Dora is doing the spits, wearing one of her thongs on her hand... Nope, still silly.

March 27, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterMark in SF

I actually rather like that last one. It is, of course, creepy, but it's also kind of clever and inventive. It's not that often that you see see-through jelly incorporated in cake. That dress, however, is an abomination. XD

March 27, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterSpiritMuse

The Demon Dog's name is obviously Rosie and she is five years old, an important milestone in a dog's life that needs celebrating with cake.

March 27, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterElla McDonald

Dora's shape is actually quite caniform...
Well, "47" was spelled correctly too...
Does having two right feet make her a better dancer?...
At least they didn't go all-out with anatomical accuracy on the last one. Right?

March 27, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterR3Test

I didn’t think it was possible to make pregnancy cakes any worse until someone thought a CLEAR GELATINE BELLY was a good idea! Not only stomach-turning from a visual standpoint, but from a gastronomical one, too.
