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? ;)

Don't Take That Literally, Spider-Man

Briana S. asked the baker to make her cookie cake "look cute."



And when Lynnette's baker asked what color frosting she wanted, she said, "Whatever pops out of the icing tube; I don't care."

You should know better, Lynn.

Not gonna lie; given Spidey's positioning, my mind went somewhere else entirely with the whole "pops out" thing. (WHAT.)


You ever pick up a cake at the grocery store bakery, and it's so, SO bad, but you're too embarrassed to say anything, so you sneak over to the canned vegetable aisle and stick it on a shelf while no one's looking?



Jennifer B. found this here, and all I can say is: good call, shopper.

(I kind of love how the cake's announcing itself to the green beans, though.)


Isn't it cute when bakers are just learning to write their numbers?

I'm gonna guess Drew is somewhere between 5 and 6.

(I usually censor bakery names, btw, but would you LOOK at that cake board? Hey, if Price Chopper Bakery wants credit that badly, who am I to stand in their way?)


And finally, here's a sweet visage to whisk you off to dreamland tonight:



Thanks to Briana S., Lynnette M., Jennifer B., Lea A., & R.B. for reminding us there's more fish in sea - so I'm prolly never sleeping again.

That last cake looks like a fish the Blue Meanies would have used in their army in Yellow Submarine.

That fish looks like the unholy love child of the Joker Fish and a Blue Meanie

I kinda like the fish with the cheesy grin.

I think my mind went the same place with that Spiderman cake, especially based on cakes you have featured in past posts. My first thought was "all they needed was a spiderweb coming out of his butt to make this a bachelor party cake". 8-0

My thought on the "popping out" was "When did Spidey become a chest-burster?" Seriously, there's something proto-alien going on there.

George's fish cake is actually kinda creepily cute.

Meanwhile, I’m obsessed with the “FiNALLY, IM HErE” cake. Come for the incorrect punctuation (or lack thereof), stay for the awkward mixed cases!

My mind instantly went the same way when I saw the Spidey cake - reminded me of the Nadia Cakes "Vageode"© cake!

That fish looks like a copy of a cartoon rather than simply a wreck. Possibly by somebody in the Ronald Searle - Gerald Scarfe school of caricature?

I'm with Grrly Girl and doctor teresa. Digging the grinning fish.

That last cake gives new meaning to sleeps with the fishes lol.. more like screams and swims away quickly.

And I’m wrong again, clearly it’s “FiNALLy, IM HErE”! I can’t even write incorrectly correctly! This is why I never made it as a proofreader.
