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? ;)

Guns, Cupcakes, And A Unicorn That Looks Like Elvis

The End Is Nigh! Quick, grab the essentials!

(That's peanut butter cake, right?)


Sperm balloons?
Checkity check.
Unintentionally suggestive inscription?



They tell me this is supposed to be a unicorn:



I love it when things get so weird that even the baker doesn't know what's going on:

There's a metaphor for life in here somewhere.


And finally, ever have something that's meant to be sweet & solemn strike you as funny?

If not, then prepare to judge me.





Thanks to Jenn A., Michelle V., Cassandra F., Christina T., & Dulcie H. for the truly groovy unicorn. A thank you. A thankyouverymuch.


Thank you for using our Amazon links to shop! USA, UK, Canada.

Is the unicorn a Phineas mold?

Could the mystery one some kind of Super Mario Bros. reference?

I guess that's supposed to be a baseball and a very confused baseball glove?

I've never seen a baseball glove confused before.

"Is the unicorn a Phineas mold?"
I love semi-obscure references

If anyone knows what cake #4 is supposed to be, you deserve a prize.

Why does the first cake look like some kid smeared poop all over the top of it? The first thing I saw when I looked at the third cake was a frog, (albino, to boot), with an Elvis do. And the fourth cake looks like something out a Japanese monster movie. Only why is the monster attacking the pile of poo? Is it radioactive and that's where it gets it powers?

Is the Elvis Unicorn having a stroke?? I'm very concerned. I think he should go to the ER.

"Quickly!" he ejaculated to the surrounding crowd. "Somebody find for Chloe the biggest box of Kleenex tissues! Isn't that just the loveliest angelic glow of divine ecstasy you've ever witnessed?"

Grace came easily to Chloe on that day but possibly, that wan't all she received as she swallowed hard and fast with a cherubic grin.

The unicorn is "Stabby" a new Simpson's character on the upcoming season.

I also got a strong Super Mario Brothers vibe from the question mark cupcake. That would be a coin block. The thing on the left? A fire ball? Bowser shell? Neither of those things are white though...

I see I wasn't the only one thinking that Unicorn used to be Phineas Flynn. I guess we can assume Isabella designed this. (out of cupcakes? that's the oddest part)

Can we just spend a minute on the wrecky Cupcake Cake that's not a cupcake cake!! And someone please get the unicorn baker to the emergency room STAT!!! They have clearly OD'd on frosting and are hallucinating!!

Why is it that the cake that is supposed to be religious is the most WRONG??!?
I am going to H-E-double hockey sticks for this, but.....
Surely, if you see that in a GEODE cake, you have to see it there...

Now I can't not see Elvis in that scary unicorn thing. Poor Elvis lol

I have tears in my eyes at the last one. I said to myself "Yeah, in your FACE, Chloe!", then died at the line under the pic.

Great minds...
