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? ;)

They're Just Really Thankful To See You

It's our favorite time of year, minions:



Yep, time to hang the traditional Poo Wang bunting (heyooo), pull up a chair (heyooo), and watch with gleeful abandon as bakers attempt - mostly in vain, since we all have the minds of 12-year-olds here - to make a turkey cake that doesn't look like poop or peepees or both.





What was that I said about "in vein"?

Eh, never mind.


And lest you think this problem is only limited to turkey cakes, BEHOLD:

It's the "Horn" of "Plenty!"

It's a real cornucopia of earthly delights, IF you catch my giant orange dong.


But remember, some turkey cakes are growers, not show-ers:

Also it's cold in here.


Now, I know what you're thinking: What if the bakers added legs on all the turkeys? Wouldn't that make them less, you know, heady? Less trouser weasel-y? Less cock-a-doodle-doo?

The answer is no.

No, it would not.


Besides, look at this poor fellow:

Scared stiff!

Awwww... I love this time of year. The 4 day holiday (well, for me anyway). The food. So. Much. Food. Traditional turkey. Gotta have the mash potatoes. My sister's cranberry ginger chutney. And PIES. Pies that it takes us two days to eat them all. Yes, it is tough job but someone's gotta do it. And then, of course, is the traditional Poo Wangs from CakeWrecks. And every year … Jen and John (THOJ) post new pictures. 'Cause every year there is a new collection of them. Wow. So. Many. Poo Wangs.

I made the mistake of thinking I could look at these whilst drinking coffee. Not a good idea!!!

Poo wang was not part of my vocabulary until Cake Wrecks!

As a non-American, I appreciate you sharing your poo-wang season with the rest of the world :-)

November 19, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterCaryl

Turkey wang season really is a thing for these wreckerators lmao. I just wonder who on earth makes these and doesn't think they look like something else. They have to be doing this on purpose lol.

So many poo wang turkeys, so little space to comment... *faints with delight at the sheer faeco-phallusity of it all*
