cake wrecks

smartie Feb 3, 2009 03:45 PM

this is a funny site. I wouldn't normally post a link but there are no ways to show the many pictures here. The site isn't that well laid out but if you play around there are many hilarious cakes. Be careful how you order your cake from the bakery!!

        Every morning, I go to my computer to check my email and to read Cake Wrecks. My kids and I were fortunate to see her and her husband when she came to town, so we're groupies. Love that site!

                  wreck-a-licious, dear ms. whit! wreck-a-licious! i love the turkey variations. you wonder, do the decorators stay up at night dreaming of their creations? i'd blame it on ambien + tequila.

                  happy thanksgiving!

                                  next time, i guess they will do the "skinning the deer" cake! then i guess we will have "gutting the hog" too.

                              This is hysterical! "Histerikal" also? The misspellings are a riot....even more so seeing the price tag on the cake.

                                  i lost it when i reached "let freedome ring" as an independence day cake. jen's commentary throughout cakewrecks is just too funny. http://www.cakewrecks.com/2010/07/wha...

                                    So has anyone seen any photos online of the wreck of an airline cake from "Last Restaurant Standing" last week? I have a friend who wrecked her son's birthday cake and I want to console her with a "professional" cake wreck.

                                    Thanks in advance!

                                              worst cake ever, possibly, yet there are so many cakewrecks and so little time....

                                                some of these halloween cakes are hilarious (as usual).

                                                ps, read the readers' comments that follow the various cakewrecks, too -- they're usually quite funny.

                                                    that kind of dedication to all things wrecked is impressive!

                                                      The first time I was pointed to this site my face hurt for 3 days I was laughing so hard.

                                                      Take some time and get a good look. There is some truly appalling stuff there.

                                                      The "Happy Falker Sautherhood" cake (and accompanying video) is priceless.

                                                        I can't get over the number of people who think fetal cakes are a good idea--in any shape or form.

                                                          Agreed. Poor execution is one thing. Some are just plain wrong from conception on. No pun intended.
