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? ;)

Catch 22

Sometimes what starts out as a cute idea for a cake can go very, VERY wrong.

That's where I come in.


I *think* this is a groom's cake.

Let that visual sink in for a moment.

(Get it? "Sink in?")


Because it only gets worse from THIS angle:




Freudian Field Day.

(Is it fair to say this wreckerator really blew it?)


But on the plus side, at least there's no hook through the bride-to-be's cheek! Haha, am I right? I mean, THAT might have been a little weird.


Thanks to an anonymous minion for the bait & switch.

There's something fishy about this cake. I mean reely, reely fishy. I don't even know where to begin to tackle this problem. Whether the baker meant to make the cake suggestive is certainly debaitable. Maybe he just lured the buyer in with some promise. And all those "brides-to-be", I hope they can swim or they'll be floundering. I just put that in there for the halibut.

Fondant Follies....
Quite tongue..and..cheek..
Nice fishing rod.
Way to stick it to 'em.
(on a side note, the best source of fishy puns is the Kip Adotta song "Wet Dreams"....

Uh ... why do wreckerators INSIST on trying to make fishing poles with fondant?! It NEVER looks right LOL

The only thing that pops to mind is a Hellboy story arc involving Japanese demons who could decapitate themselves at will and follow him. He eventually, after luring them on a phony fishing trip, sank the heads in a small, convenient pond. But that doesn’t look anything like Hellboy and those heads don’t look even slightly Japanese, so I think it’s just weird. I’d have concerns about marrying someone who could not only think of this scenario, but didn’t think there was anything odd about it and had no problems displaying it AT HIS WEDDING. Not a good omen.

Just curious what the bait was...

They're just commemorating their first date - it was salmon-chanted evening.

Curious as to the significance of the string tied around his knobby wang. (Or whatever the Cakewrecks style guide word for penis is these days.)

Technically the cake is very well done. We can all hope it was meant as an innocent joke.

Looks like he’s fishing for cabbage patch kids.... then I saw the pole!

I really hope this wreckerator was giggling to themselves the whole time they were making this! 😂

Maybe someone got the idea from "There are plenty of fish in the ocean" or "A woman without a man is like a fish without a bicycle."

Did anybody else notice that the blond on the left of the cake in the picture looked a bit like some female anatomy as well, or was that just me?

I think it’s supposed to be a take-off on the little fishing game in which the fish circle around and you try to “catch” them with a little magnet on the end of a fishing line. Hence the little heads poking up out of the cake with their mouths open. Cute for a game, not so much for a groom’s cake.

That uh fishing pole does not look like a fishing pole to me lol. My mind may have gone in the gutter but sheesh I can't stop laughing and being horrified at the same time.

@Classic Steve
"A woman without a man is like a fish without a bicycle", you say? Huh? Do fish need bicycles to make babies then?

August 10, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterThijs

It’s very well executed:D
