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: Super Mario Wedding Cake

Who here in my generation doesn't remember the Super Mario brothers? Ah yes, the square controllers, the thumb blisters, that annoying music that played endlessly in your head every night when you were trying to sleep...

Well, two people with those fond memories grew up, found each other, and decided to get married. Then they commissioned this wedding cake:

Gorgeous, no? But the real beauty is in the details; check this out:

That multi-colored ring is the Rainbow Road (I believe from Mario Kart), and it's made of hard sugar candy, like a lollipop.

Look how adorable:

And just crazy detailing:

Lookit the tiny bananas in the road! Ack! I love them!

This masterpiece was created by Beth over at Let Them Eat Cake, and the photos were originally uploaded here.

Interestingly enough, the other Mario-themed wedding cake I was going to feature anyway is the one this couple reference as their own inspiration cake - small world! Here it is:

Too cute, and also with beautifully done details. It was created by Robin at Gateaux Inc, and the photo was originally uploaded here.

Superb work. My mum cooks and decorates amazing cakes, I've sent her this one for inspiration. I bet the lucky recipient loved it.

These cake designs are absolutely amazing. I was looking at your newest super mario post and then continued here. Absolutely astounding.

I would have never thought to do a cake like this for a wedding, but my oh my does that make my mind run on wedding cake options.

Can't wait to see more of these in the future.
