Cake Wrecks

Think of this blog not just as a collection of baking disasters but accidental art in the kitchen, at once spectacular and bizarre. There's the least festive holiday cake of all time and the most disturbing life-size baby cake to exist outside a nightmare. And while those might be among the most peculiar and hilarious of the blog's discoveries, Cake Wrecks also pays homage to those cakes that are so beautifully elaborate that they earn our admiration and even envy. One killer example: the Father's Day cake that looks like a hyper-realistic tool set. Finally, the wreck photos often come with hilarious stories on how the disaster came to be — enriching the schadenfreude. Above all, this blog never lets you forget that failure can be fun.
