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? ;)

Rejected Princess Movies

New, in honor of Princess Week!

Rejected Princess Movies... in cake.


Snow White And The Swamps of Sadness



Sleeping With The Fishes

A terrible curse.
A fishy tail.
And a super long nap.

("Is she still pink?" "No, BLUE!")


Fairy Apocalypse

Tinkerbell finds a new friend!
And this one's still alive!


Rapunzel And The Haunted Guitar Pick Path Of Doom

"Rapunzel! Let down your haiAAAAAUGGGGH!!"

(Yes, that's really supposed to be a Tangled cake for poor little "Chole"/Chloe. And I am so confused.)


Frozen 2: Elsa Gets Grumpy

"Alright, who let one go?"


Thanks to Vicky G., Andrew D., Brian W., Michal S., & Emma R. for the fractured farty tales.

Nothing says, " I wish I never had children," the way these cakes do.
Although the last one reminds me of my favorite Elsa ( ) so I have to love it.

I'd look grumpy too, if my hair looked like a tenticle about to strike.

That last one. That's the reason I keep coming back for my daily CakeWrecks. No one does it like you, Jen. Or better.

Why does Olaf have horns? Yikes!

April 21, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterDeirdre

It's not just Elsa, though; did you see that ANNA??? She looks like she's taken a few too many magical snowballs to the head. And Olaf...what is up with those horns?

April 21, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterGingerSnap

Now that's an Elsa I can get on board with, she's not about to let anything go!

"Is she still pink?"
"No BLUE!"
That absolutely made my morning...thank you. :-)

April 21, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterJen

Is it just me or does anyone else see Bea Arthur in that last one? Golden Girls doing a talent show with flashy sequined muu muus with Dorothy (a fur stole on her shoulder) looking miffed about something and her hands in fists ready to strike.

Next up....Beauty and the Beastly Decorated Cake!!

Maybe recipient of Sleeping Fishy is just a really imaginative child who felt like a mash-up was the best way to celebrate her two favorite princesses. Or maybe the wreckerator didn't understand what a mermaid style dress looks like. Either way, that algae green icing is completely unappetizing.

I too wondered why Olaf had horns. Elsa seems to have aged about 50 years, after a lot of smoking and hard drinking.

Love how they turned Aurora (Sleeping Beauty) into a version of Ariel.

Watch out for radiation burns Tink!

And poor Chole/Chloe! That tree looks like it came from the haunted forest!

Re: Artax

TOO SOON!!!!!!!!!

April 21, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterLadybugFaerie

Oh, for the love of....!? I had that last one ALL wrong. I saw the figure on top as being the very unamused mother-in-law of the little guy on the right, who is about to become her son-in-law, and the redhead as her child-bride daughter.So, honestly, I can't blame the mother for looking less than enthusiastic; after all, she is/was probably looking forward to grandchildren. ... and look where they are! There could be issues with fri---...No, I won't say it. This is a family show...*snort* The "5"? I guess that could be someone's bet for how many years the deal will last? There could've been a pool! (Hey, I don't make these things; I only snort at them.) =^-.-^=

What I want to know is why Rapunzel is living in a giant nose...

April 21, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterHAL

Holy cow! That Elsa looks just like Barbra Streisand!

April 21, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterErika

Bahahahaha :D

April 21, 2015 | Unregistered Commentermindy1

What I would like to know is... WHY does Olaf have antlers?

April 21, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterTheOtherJen

All I see is Miss Piggy,not Elsa at all! Love this site and pray none of my cakes ever make it here, unless of course it's for Sunday Sweets.

April 21, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterJeri the cake lady

Elsa's face reminds me of the Muppets old men hecklers.

April 21, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterBecky

Artax is the reason my children refuse to watch movies that I suggest. Definitely too soon!!

April 21, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterTracey

The first two cakes and their descriptions almost made me lose my phone.
I like this place. It turns anything I have in my mouth into a choking hazard but it's so worth it.

April 21, 2015 | Unregistered Commenterteabunny

You're hilarious, Jen! I agree w Maureen above.

April 21, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterJulieface

Those aren't guitar picks they're snowshoes!

April 22, 2015 | Unregistered Commenterclaudia

there's a girl named Chole in my sons preschool class. Not Chloe, Chole. Accent over the e.

April 22, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterJona

Lol loving Elsa. She looks like she got one of these cakes for her birthday lol. And poor Aurora she at least got a pink fish tail. As for Rapunzel what the heck is she living in? It looks like bunny ears lol.

April 22, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterArlene Marie

Olaf doesn't look too bad, I said to myself. Then I saw the horns.

April 22, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterNobodee Home

Nothing's funnier than a wrecked wedding cake... unless it's a bawling child's birthday cake! XD

April 22, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterBea

We nurses know "chole" = gallbladder removal. So it makes sense.

Fairy Apocalypse! When children stop clapping....

April 22, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterIsabella

Once again, I'm utterly speechless and the gawd-awfulness of these cakes. The one from Frozen was especially bad. As I was looking through these, it made me thankful I'm not a cake decorator. Even my iguana could do a better job.

June 21, 2015 | Unregistered Commenterturtle lady

The look on Elsas face is priceless.

"Cakes never bothered me anyway."

April 21, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterSaintMirren1877

The Elsa looks like, (*gasp*) Hillary Clinton all pissed off.
Probably at something Bill did...

That's not a horse Snow White's riding, it's a hippo!

November 2, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterLora

Elsa on top looks more like a drag queen.

November 22, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterLynne S

Lol whoever the creator of Elsa is was a diabolical genius
