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: Autumn Awesomeness in Atlanta

Today's Sweets are brought to you by Highland Bakery in Atlanta, Georgia. The folks over at Highland routinely churn out the most jaw-droppingly gorgeous creations the South has ever seen, and I'd be hard-pressed to pick a favorite. So instead, I just chose some season-appropriate lovelies.

Doesn't this look like a giant Hallmark figurine? (I mean that in a good way.)

The cobblestones, the twisty vines, the gnarled posts! There's so much more to this cake than the cutesy mice. (Although the mice are pretty darn adorable, I must admit.)

I don't think I've ever seen sugar art looks so much like porcelain - just look at those leaves!

Mmm, sugary mushrooms...

Next up: a perfect pumpkin:

I just love the simple design and creamy colors. I think cakes overall should use more orange, too, don't you? Year-round, I mean: orange is just underused.

Many thanks to Karen and the gang over at Highland Bakery for the lovely work, and for not hanging up on John when he said he was calling from Cake Wrecks. ;)
