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? ;)

Oooh, Hard One

YOU GUYS. I found it: the ultimate litmus test for a pure mind.

Here's how it works:

If you can look at the following cake without immediately side-eying the person next to you and/or laughing like a scandalized hyena, you pass.



Oh, and if you see the name "Emma," you pass, too.

If, however, you see a Simpson Schlong with the word WEED written on it, welcome. You're one of us.

I definitely see a Simpson Schlong with the word WEED written on it. I am also very curious about what's going on over there on top of the lone Simpson gnad. Is the duck doing Freudian therapy with the honey bear? Is the honey pot stuck to the bear and the duck is surgically removing it? WHY is the bear laying down and smiling at the duck? WHY?

I most definitely saw a schlong. Just sayin'.


March 30, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterMaryO1230

Wait, I see WEEO, where does that put me?

March 30, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterKeks

Yay!!! I belong, hooray!!!!

But, oy, poor Emma. What are those parents doing? (Is it me or the teddy bear looks dead, and the ducky is watching the corpse?)

March 30, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterTere

Well, I *didn't* see it, til ya said it. Sign.

March 30, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterMoira

Yeah, I'm one of you. I'm guessing that the shape is supposed to be a "1," in which case it really needs a base.

March 30, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterClassic Steve

*Chants* one of us, one of us, one of us ....

March 30, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterRietje

I did see "Emma," but I also saw a Simpson schlong along with some sort of unnatural behavior between a duck and a bear. Where does this leave me?

March 30, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterSuBee

What does it mean if you see a bird and a teddy bear?

March 30, 2017 | Unregistered Commenterthis is me

I am one of you :D :P

March 30, 2017 | Unregistered Commentermindy1

Yeah, what is this even SUPPOSED to be?

March 30, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterJodi

I did see Emma. Then after you said it I see weed too. Now it goes back and forth in my brain like one of those optical illusions,

March 30, 2017 | Unregistered Commentersue

The birds and the bears on a weed dong...

March 30, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterJubles

"We are Cake Wrecks fans. We are one. Resistance is futile"

March 30, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterBossyHeifer

At first I saw "emmo" then I saw weed. Immediately saw the...uh..."appendage". These are truly my people.

March 30, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterVaBeach alemaP

I saw "Emmo" on a schlong, and wondered why someone would name their kid EMO. It is kind of obvious it was supposed to be a "1". At least it doesn't have whipped cream decorating it!

March 30, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterKaren

ME? PURE as the driven snow, I tell you.
I AM, however, a bit concerned about Pooh. The way he's looking at the bird (Is that supposed to be Woodstock??) makes me wonder what's REALLY in that "honey" pot.....

March 30, 2017 | Unregistered Commentersendingtheclowns

It took me a minute, but I think this is supposed to be a number 1 with Emma and some animals on it. But I also know that what I saw first was a yellow dong with WEEO written on it.

March 30, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterCaliatom

Yeah, I immediately recognized a #1 with a bird and a bear for WEEO's first birthday. But since you asked the leading question, I could see where you might see something else. That little marzipan bear looks yummy but the bird has its head o backwards.

March 30, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterAlison in Indiana

Why is the duck's head on backwards?

March 30, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterFelix1140

I saw a schlong with 2 preschool characters..."playing doctor" and the word WEEO. I just don't even know...

March 30, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterKimberly R

Are her parents named Ross and Rachel?

March 30, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterTara

Someone's reusing the penis pan again....

March 30, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterMandy

It's two characters from Danish kids tv called: "Bamse og kylling" (Teddy and checken". Vakse apart from the name great

March 30, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterChristina

I pass but only because I was completely distracted by the duck and wondering why his head was on backwards. By then, I realized it was a "one" and thus read down and saw "Emma". That said, I had no trouble seeing the Simpson's schlong and "weed" either.

March 30, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterHeather

So, Mr. Bear, tell me about your Mother. Bear and Bird are stoned during this therapy session, especially sitting on a Simpson Schlong.

March 30, 2017 | Unregistered Commenterdddelite

I saw the word WEEO too. I wondered where anyone got 'emma' then I looked at the word SIDEWAYS! That explains what went wrong there...still looks like a schlong either way.

March 30, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterNathan R.

I am surprised no one has mentioned the bear's unfortunate decapitation. At first I thought there were two bears but then decided there is just one bear with his/her head cut off and moved to the side.

March 30, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterD'Marie

*Cackles like a mad thing!* Now I've got the Simpsons theme in my head. D'oh!

March 30, 2017 | Unregistered Commenterdeb in atlanta

I definitely belong here. And I passed with an A+.

March 30, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterBergman

The name on the cake board says La Glace. Which is like *the* most fancy (and expensive) bakery in Denmark. Which just makes this even funnier.

Totally saw a ding-dong. But I'm on team WEEO not weed

March 30, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterKaren

I saw it as those picture puzzle things, and came up with...dickweed.

March 30, 2017 | Unregistered Commenterconnie

I could say "Big Bird", but that would be tacky.

March 30, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterNeeta

I saw the Simpson Schlong but I saw weeo... I just thought the things on top were having fun...

March 30, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterMary Ann

I saw a yellow number one (that would have made my fifth grade math teacher lecture the entire class on how to write a 1 again), with the name 'Emmo'. Then I realized it likely was meant to read 'Emma' and your comment confirmed.

March 30, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterTifa

"WEED" appears to have been written by Walt Disney.

March 30, 2017 | Unregistered Commenterjbrecken

I saw WEED with a bunch of stoned animals lounging around. 😜

March 30, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterJasry

One of us, one of us, one of us...

March 30, 2017 | Unregistered Commenterdr handle

Yeah, yeah, yeah cake schlong. But more importantly: BAMSE! And his very good best friend Kylling! 🐻🐥

March 30, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterAmber

Well, I saw a wang with the word 'W E E O' (which I read in my head as whee-oh) so yep, closely aligned with tribe.

March 30, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterKim

Team WEEO. Saw the schlong. Thought hard and long on this.

March 30, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterJ'NaeNae

WEEO and a schlong. Yup.

March 31, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterNobodee Home

I did see weed and some very weird shananigans on the top of that thing lol. Heck I fear for the wreckerators sanity at this point lol.

March 31, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterArlene Marie

Without your hints it would've took me hours to get 'lil Emma turned 1.

March 31, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterEmma

Your fifth grade math teacher would have to pass, Tifa, ones are written that way in Europe. If the cake had been presented the way it was intended, with the one vertically, everyone would have recognized it right away and read the name as EMMA, but it would not have been as much fun:-)

March 31, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterAlison in Indiana

One of us! One of us! One of us!

March 31, 2017 | Unregistered Commenterkrunchifrog

I see both... what's that make me?

March 31, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterShelly

I saw both. Would love to know what that says about me.

March 31, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterStar

I see the number 4 and the word "Dweeb", but I'm also dyslexic. ...On my second pass, no, it's not Dweeb, it's Emmo.

I still don't see a 1 or Emma.

Also, is someone crushing that bear to death with a giant pile of poo?

April 1, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterAlec

In order:

1) Well that's a giant wang
2) What happened to those poor animals! The duck has a broken neck and the bear is clearly dead!
3) Oh, weed. I guess that's an explanation. Though is this an anti-drug or pro-drug thing?
4) Little Emma is definitely going to be interesting when she grows up.
