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? ;)

10 Bakers Who Would Really Suck At Pictionary

Ready, Set, DRAW!


1. Steak:

I guess "T-Bone" doesn't like his steak well done.


2. Guitar:

Strings are for sissies.


3. Truck Tire:

Yes, really.


4. The Eiffel Tower:

Try as I might, all I can see is the Leg Lamp from A Christmas Story. Just me?


5. Basketball:



6. Flip-Flops:

Made from only the freshest diseased lungs.


7. Alligator:



8. Fire:

"Fire" going down in flames. The irony, it burns.


9. Airplane

"Surely you can't be serious."

"I am serious... and don't call me 'Shirley.'"


10. Elvis:

...left the building a long, LONG time ago. This looks more like David Bowie wearing a skunk.

That Elvis cake looks more like Voldemort joined a Flock of Seagulls cover band.

Pretty sure that is Voldemort wearing that skunk.

I see an IUD in the first one. Doesn't help that it has a string...

That guitar looks like something straight out of Dr. Seuss

No, what you claim is an airplane body is definitely a shoe, and what you claim is an airplane tail is definitely an ankle. That's not an airplane, it's a foot.

1) A river runs through it?
2) I would have guessed one deep sea creature eating another one.
3) This must be the wheels full of eyes that the prophet Ezekiel saw.
4) More like the Awful Tower.
5) Eyeball? Pumpkin eyeball?
6) Sea slugs doing their mating ritual.
7) I could see an alligator here. But why is he getting shock treatment?
8) An undersea kelp forest tainted by pollution.
9) Shoe fly, don't bother me!
10) A caricature of Donald Trump? But why isn't the icing orange?

Elvis looks like someone was drunk while trying to make a map of Michigan. Clearly they cut out a template for each peninsula but accidentally overlapped them. "Uh, what was I making again? Oh, it's Elvis!"

I think that "Sorry to see you go" actually has a giant foot in a sneaker, ready to stomp on out. Or maybe it's just going to land on someone, Python-esque.

Those are flames? I thought it was a field of dried vegetation (which, depending on how dry it is, could become flames, given the right incendiary -- birthday candle? for a potential pyromaniac?).

OMG - "David Bowie wearing a skunk" made me laugh, just as I was about to sneeze -- OUCH!
The alligator CCC looks like a squooshed triceratops. The guitar looks like a turkey leg (albeit a malformed one!). I was certain that the airplane was an ankle, sock, and sneaker.

I saw the headline, and the sample picture posted to Facebook, and thought, "But that's a decent-looking foot in a running shoe, I wonder why it's on this list?" Then I read the post and realized it was an airplane. THAT'S why it's on this list.

Is that “gator” wearing a set his left...shoulder??? I’m so confused

February 26, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterAron

Let me have a crack at these...

1: Actual Heart
2: Chicken drumstick
3: Death Star
4: Lady in a dress after falling down the stairs...or pushed by Skywarp.
5: Hamburger
6: A pair of sea cucumbers
7: The Gieco gecko after a accident with a seamroller
8: Bananas
9: Turned upside-down a Star Trek phaser or a white Shockwave
10: Bunny

Whoever thought that was Elvis had wayyyyyyyyyyy too much to drink that night lol. And no way on the 29.99 price wow. Still laughing cause my hubby thought the fire looked like a bunch of french fries and I had to agree lol.

February 27, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterArleneMarie

Is that an airplane or a submarine?

The last one looks like a member of Leningrad Cowboys (a Finnish band - do a Google image search and you'll know what I mean).

February 27, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterTee

I thought the Elvis one might be Beavis. Or Butthead. I never could tell them apart.

February 27, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterTeje

I saw bananas...but then, I always seem to see bananas on this page....

February 27, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterMedith

I'm glad I'm not the only one to see an IUD for the first one. Maybe T-Bone was its nickname, and the good luck refers to the attempt to start a family.

February 27, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterBrendan

#1 A cake like that is enough to give you the Existential Blues.

#3 Ezekiel's wheel! @Mike beat me to it!

#7 Hmmm... Voldemort, wearing a bad toupee, made from a skunk's tail. In other words...a skunk-butt rug. >.>

February 28, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterNerfbomb

Nope, not a guitar - perhaps a male appendage with a tapeworn...

But NOT a guitar!
