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? ;)

Sunday Sweets: Pretty As A Princess

Fun Fact: A Disney princess cake doesn't always have to have the princess on it!

You could just use her color scheme and accessories, like Snow White's apples here:

(Found here. Anyone know the baker?)

And look how elegant, with that intricate lace work!

 

Of course, it doesn't get more iconic than Cinderella's glass slipper:

Love that detailing!

 

You see a lot of bakers now dressing up a traditional tiered cake in the Princess' dress and crown -
and I approve:

(By The Cake Store)

Aurora's white collar works perfectly here, and check out the subtle "seam lines" on the top tier, which match her dress' bodice!

 

This Ariel cake? SO FUN:

(By Cakes By Joanne)

I'm completely smitten with those soft pastels - and THAT TAIL! Hee! Am I right?

 

Here's a brilliant collection of props for Belle:

Most Belle cakes only have the rose, so it's cool to see the stained glass and mirror, too!

 

Would you believe I not only found a Mulan cake, I found a GORGEOUS Mulan cake?

(By Pastry Chik)

So perfect! From the hair comb to the pattern on her folded kimono!

 

I've always loved Tiana's dress colors, but the extra purple flowers here really make the bright greens sing:

(By Mama Nena's Cakes)

Ah! SO SWEET.

 

Now, get ready to laugh:

(Found here. Anybody know who made it?)

Ha! Grumpy Pascal is my new favorite thing. :D

(Although Rapunzel's braid border & dress lacing are brilliant design touches.)

 

Another great dress design for Merida:

(Baker unknown. Anybody know?)

And the three bear brothers give it that perfect dose of D'awwwww.

 

Last but not least, the most popular princesses right now:

(By Cuteology Cakes)

Elsa & Anna!

(Though technically I guess only Anna is a princess now, with Elsa being queen.)

I am so, so impressed with Elsa's dress texture, and how the crown ties the two together. Beautiful!

 

Hope you enjoyed! Happy Sunday, everyone!

Some of my favorite new submissions this week.

 

What we have here is a failure to grasp the concept:

And speaking of revealing:

Is that what they're calling it now?

 

At least this wedding wreck came with tissues for the bride to cry into:

Although the chocolate smears may bring to mind a different kind of tissue.
(Ewww.)

 

Had to include at least one more Princess cake for Princess Week!

Isn't it grand?

 

Too bad that's not what they got:

Hmm. I see your points.

 

And finally:

When display signs get snippy:

Cannot. Stop. Laughing.

 

Thanks to Troy D., Jacqueline E., Giancarlo, Shane R., & Jennifer H. for showing even bakery labels can have a bad day.
