cake wrecks

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!!

        denny's fried cheese melt insanewich: http://www.insanewiches.com/?p=1675
        and you thought kfc's "double down" was bad!

      2. 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.

          1. re: chowser

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

                She's doing a book tour and I was hoping she'd come up here.


                1. re: Davwud

                  Yeah. NYC 10/7. I'm going with a baker friend. Should be a hoot.

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

          check out the angry roll of toilet paper! http://cakewrecks.blogspot.com/2009/1...

          thank you cakewrecks, you ALWAYS make me smile (or...more often, literally laugh out loud)!

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

            ahahahaha - angry toilet paper!

            I also love " WHAT in the name of sweet Lassie is that spider doing?!?"

            1. re: alkapal

              cakewrecks twitter has over a million followers.
              that kind of dedication to all things wrecked is impressive!

              1. re: alkapal

                Those were great. thanks for the laugh!

              2. laydeez, are you getting ready for one smokin' hot valentine's day? then you better put in your order for a cake! here is a really great idea --> http://cakewrecks.blogspot.com/2009/0...

                  alkapal, i thought you were referring to this "smoking" cake:


                  1. re: coney with everything

                    BUTT it was disgusting..... ;-)).

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

                      1. re: Davwud

                        parents who want to discourage their children from smoking, i suppose.
                        mmm mmm goood!

                      2. re: alkapal

                        There are too many candidates, but a top ten would have to include the life-size dead Lenin - anyone for a slice of eyebrow?

                    1. re: alkapal

                      Knew it was a matter of time until Scott Brown cakes hit the shelves.

                      1. re: HillJ

                        poor avatart (2d photo). is that supposed to be blood or a red braid?

                      2. i want to make this an extra special valentain's day for you! http://cakewrecks.blogspot.com/2010/0...

                        """"The fact that this was on clearance makes me oddly proud of the buying public."""
                        hear, hear!

                        1. 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!


                          1. 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...

                              use this link for the independence day cakes. the old link is somehow shot. http://cakewrecks.blogspot.com/2010/0...

                            2. Two people who should know how to spell:
                              1. your tattoo artist
                              2. your cake decorator (though the evidence gets eaten so it's not that bad)

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

                                1. i think it is time for a belly laugh or two. so check out the "bucks" here: http://cakewrecks.blogspot.com/2010/0...

                                  "My rack! My rack! My rack is on fi-yurrr!" <made me laugh, and i thought of the ohio players! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y47G-W... -- shout out to kattyeyes!>

                                      i just noticed the three "bullet holes" in the last one....

                                      1. re: alkapal

                                        How did you miss that? :) "I'm bleeding...raspberry jam!" Nice touch.

                                        1. re: kattyeyes

                                          maybe i was too busy laughing at "Fi-YURR!" <"wooh ooh ooh ooooh">.

                                          1. re: alkapal

                                            OMG - bullet holes?!? That's insane! But the angel hair pasta makes it all better.

                                        2. re: alkapal

                                          SERIOUSLY funny, alka! Did you also notice the blood coming from the felled deer's mouth? :-)

                                          1. re: LindaWhit


                                            oh, that cake is the gift that keeps on giving! LOL.

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

                                      2. re: alkapal

                                        Hysterical! And more so that Helen Reddy introduced 'em. Definitely got my coupla bucks' worth of laughs outta dem deer! ;) Benadryl!!!

                                      3. Funniest site ever! I'm always laughing so hard that I cry... which makes it a problem if someone comes into my office right after I've checked out the day's wrecks.

                                          1. re: alkapal

                                            Anyone who like I Can Has Cheezburger and CakeWrecks can't be ALL bad.

                                            Geeky, yes. Bad, no. :-)

                                            1. re: Davwud

                                              LOL!!! Ummm, yeah. I'm sure Mary doesn't want that information to get out. ;-)

                                              I keep forgetting to check CakeWrecks out. Always funny!

                                              1. re: Davwud

                                                "toy in the middle" indeed.

                                                and the knight they called "tim."!! that's what really got me. LOL!

                                                1. re: alkapal

                                                  OMG, the Admiral Ackbar turkey cake really LOOKS like Admiral Ackbar! LOL Seriously, you have to wonder WHAT these cake people are thinking. :-D

                                                  1. re: LindaWhit

                                                    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!

                                                2. ok, y'all need a belly laugh today, don't you?
