We feel sorry for the people who received one of these 20 cakes for their special occasion.
We thought it might be fun to put together a list of some party cakes that might not have turned out exactly as envisioned. A few have mistakes, others are obviously inappropriate, and some are just plain weird. Let’s just say we feel sorry for whoever might have received one of these for their special day.
So, without further ado, we present to you our list of “20 Party Cakes Gone Horribly Wrong.”
1. Code Gone Wrong
There are a large number of online cake decorators that allow customers to add their own message via an online system. Sadly the designer failed to notice that the code messed up and this cake ended up being sent out to the customer.
Poor Aunt Elsa!
2. Baby Cake Wreck
We’re assuming this cake was made to celebrate a baby’s birth or first birthday, but it ended up looking like some weirdo tried to bake a real baby!
3. TOO REAL! TOO REAL!!!
We can’t even…then there are pictures of it being cut up! We’d have to say “great job on the cake, but we’re not touching it!”
4. Doggy Spider-man
This poor child’s Spidey birthday cake ended up looking like some sort of bizarre misshapen dog. This cake would scare the hell out of any child – “mommy, what wrong with Spider-man’s arms?!
5. Happy Bath-Day
Whomever bought this cake must have thought the birthday boy/girl was in need of a good cleaning.
6. SpongeBob NOPE-Pants
Uh…Nailed it. ‘Nuff said.
7. Braidal Shoer
This is what happens when you outsource your cakes to foreign countries! We’re not sure what a Braidal Shoer is, but we’ll pass.
8. Melted Minion
Sheesh, I don’t like the Minions either, but this is just cruel! Nah, we get that it’s a mistake. But uh…maybe get someone else to do the cake next time.
9. Can You Smoke Outta This?
We’re not entirely sure what this was supposed to be, but it looks like some sort of college dorm bong. We’re no experts, but we’re sure this won’t get you very far.
10. Teddy Bear Cupcakes
This TV character cake looks like it’s seen better days. So has the cake decorator, we hope.
12. R2D…Never Mind
We hate to laugh at this, but we can’t help it.
13. Pedo Cake
Keep this cake AND the decorator at a wide berth from any of your children.
15. Well, You Get the Point
Sorry, Suzanne. Lapse in communication here, it appears. Not only the obvious, but the person couldn’t even spell “underneath”!
Uh…well, we tried. Least you can tell what it is, even if the baby does have lifelong nightmares!
He’s a little too excited, and a little too…special. Happy 2nd birthday, buddy.
18. …Or Was It?
The…tossel was worth the hastle? Alright, well, maybe it was. Who am I to say what a tossel or hastle is?
19. Thomas the Tank
Smiling or plotting someone’s demise? The world may never know.
20. Flash Drive
Apparently there’s a (definitely not fictitious) story behind this one:
[answering phone] “Cakey Cake Bakery, Jill speaking! How can I help you?”
“Hi, I need to order a cake for my boss. We have a photo of him playing golf that we’d like to put on it, though – can you do that?”
“Of course! Just bring the photo in on a USB drive and we’ll print it out here.”
“Great, I’ll bring it by this afternoon.”
“Hey, Jill, what am I putting on this cake?”
“Oh, check the counter; I left the jump drive out for you there.”
[calling from the back room] “Really? This is what they want on the cake?”
“Yeah, the customer just brought it in.”
