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? ;)

My Spidey Senses Are Tingling

It's Spider-Man Day!


Er, with your hands, Spidey. Your hands.


For the past 300 years* Spider-Man has faced off against the deadliest of da foes: Doc Oc, Venom, Willem...

[*Thanks, Wikipedia!]


...but today Spider-Man faces his most formidable enemies yet:



Don't give up, Spider-Man! We've got your back!

No sprinkles can hold you!


You CAN make it across that cake!

Or... not.


Try using your special web-slinging skills!

This is a little awkward.

[insert "Peter Parker" joke here]


Well, happy birth/anniversary/first day of publication anyway, Spider-Man. Here's to many, MANY more years of...

Spidey squirting the silk out of his butt is what spiders actually do. Here's a video to explain it: (Caution NSFW)

That last one looks more like Strong Bad.

1) Who knows? If his strength is so great, maybe his spider-fart could raise the roof.
2) I don't know why Spidey is smiling. I wouldn't be if someone had given me two black eyes.
3) Even superheroes need time to unwind and relax. Or, maybe this is the remains of the roof.
4) What kind of diabolical arch-villain did he meet to end up a quadruple amputee? Whoever it was must have been a real cut-up.
5) Maybe his spider sense is tinkling.
6) Is it me, or are the anti-zit ads carrying things a bit too far?

That 4th cake is actually kind of charming with its border of fondant buildings, until you see the blob that is supposed to be Spider-Man doing...whatever it is he’s doing. But the sprinkles on the 3rd cake are baffling. Did Spidey implode? Explode? Melt?? Bleed to death?? Beats me.

Poor Spider-Man.

At first, I didn't even know what the last cake was.

August 1, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterR. no one going to say it? If Spidey had been around for 300 years, he would’ve been created in 1718, BEFORE the United States. As I understand it, the early colonists weren’t that much into mutant teenagers. They’d probably have burned him as a witch, actually. He actually first appeared in 1962–56 years ago.

Lmao! That poor drowning spidey just trying to get across that cake. I cannot stop giggling now lol.

Does the one with the buildings on the side say: "Will"? "Wiii"? or "Whyyyyy?"
