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? ;)

Between A Wreck And A Hard Place

Gents, are you feeling a bit... droopy... lately?


Because whether you want to rock out with your turkey out:


Do a little dribbling:


Or just feel on fire again:


The answer is as plain as the "nose" on Elmo's face!


Even little Brandon here knows:
There's more than one way to win the race.



So forget those turtle necks, fellas:


...and get ready to CELEBRATE!

Don't wait; ask your baker today about Cake Wrecks!

You'll have a truly uplifting experience... GUARANTEED.

What's that last one even supposed to be? A flower?

If the erection of your Viagra cake takes longer than 6 hours, contact a Master Baker immediately.

That's Elmo? Wow, I need better drugs...

March 27, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterJuls

Fun fact, when that car was running in NASCAR, the Twitter nickname for that particular car was the "Stiffie Mobile".

Viagra has its own DAY? SERIOUSLY?

(And why does one of the Elmos have horns? I've thought for years that he is a furry little demon, but rarely do I find anyone that agrees with me.)

Oh, Sharyn! That was hilarious! (And quite the *come-on* for the bakeries!) But poor little Brandon is wondering, "Hey! Where the f(rosting) are my CANDLES?" =^~.-^=

The Viagra - car was driven by renowned Racer, Mike Coxafallen. Give it a minute...there ya go! Thanks again Cakewrecks for making my day that much better by starting it off with a good hardy laugh! Love you guys!

Elmo the Elephant,!?!?!? Oy........".

I really hope that's supposed to be Mr. Snuffleupagus and not Elmo, cuz WOW if it's Elmo.

March 27, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterJulie

I think they're doing it on purpose just to see if they can get away with it. How can they not see that??? Oy!
@Cookiemama ~ I forgot the first rule of CW and just snorted coffee out my nose. Thanks for that!

Lighting thise candles on the DQ cake could be really fun. Even more fun to watch at the men at the table squirm.

And when you blow them out. . . a blow job?

Brilliant post!

Sharyn - spot on, as always! Good to know things haven't changed around here. ;-)

Do not buy a wreck if you:
•take any pride in how you present yourself to the world as this may cause a sudden, unsafe drop in your self esteem.
•are allergic to flotsam, edible paper, grammar errors, spelling errors, ordinal number errors, errors and CCCs (patooie!)

Discuss your personal taste with your baker to ensure that you are emotionally healthy enough for wrecks. If you experience chest pain, dizziness, or nausea upon seeing a wreck, take comfort in the fact that this is an indication that you still maintain a modicum of good taste.

Wrecks can cause serious side effects. Rarely reported side effects include:
•an erection that will not go away (priapism). Really, this is extremely rare. If you experience an erection upon viewing a wrecked cake, you’re probably beyond help.
•sudden vision loss in one or both eyes. Be grateful.
•sudden hearing decrease or hearing loss. Once again, be grateful. You won’t have to listen to the unkind comments which may accompany the presentation of your wreck.

Are you thinking of changing the day to "Phallic-Phriday Phaves"? Perverted minds want to know... =^~.-^=

March 27, 2015 | Unregistered Commentersendingtheclowns

Too bad you didn't include the donought (technically a cake) that I sent you awhile ago - would've been perfect for this post...Otherwise, WTF bakers?

March 27, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterJeawas

And Sharyn wins the internet...again! :D

March 27, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterGingerSnap

Huh. Never noticed the car. All my sordid brain could see was that front facing telltale swoop into Brandon's name.

March 27, 2015 | Unregistered Commentermsyendor

how does this KEEP happening... I'm still speechless

March 27, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterLazyPanther

No, really. Does anyone have a clue about what that last cake is supposed to be?

March 27, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterPat

In the words of George Takei,"Oh,my!" Please, please,PLEASE someone tell me what is on that last cake? In all my days I have NEVER seen anything living or dead, animal, vegetable or mineral that it may represent. Thanks for another evening dissolving into giggles.

"Or just feel on fire?"

If you're feeling on fire down there, I believe there's a cream for that.

March 27, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterSaraV

The last cake? Those are "supposed" to be balloons. Blobs+strings=balloons.

Admittedly, the worst balloons ever seen on this site, which saying quite a lot, but balloons nonetheless.

March 27, 2015 | Unregistered Commenternanalettie

Oh gosh I can't breathe now. Thanks lol. Even my husband was shocked lol. They really can't see what they are doing when these come out of the bakery? I would be laughing too hard to put them in the display case.

March 28, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterArlene Marie

@SuBee -Brilliant! :-D

Okay, the stars must be aligned today, because cake met science. I give you... THIS. I found it two minutes before randomly hopping over to this page. (I know Paul Knoepfler personally, btw, and he's a great scientist and researcher at UC-Davis, but I'm not completely sure what he was thinking with this one...)

Stem cells could do... what? Packages are involved??
