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 Assignment

Ok, Wreckporters, your mission (should you decide to accept it) IS:

Seek out and report beautiful NON-Wrecks in the theme of Winter Wonderland. Send your nominations to Sunday Sweets [at] Cake Wrecks [dot] com.

The theme is open to interpretation; it can be snowmen, ice castles, bare trees, etc. Search your favorite bakery's website, photo hosting sites like Flickr, or even submit your own cakes: the "professional-only" rule doesn't apply for Sunday Sweets. (Be sure to include the web link where you found the cake, so I can give props where they're due.)

I promise we'll have more interesting and/or unique themes later: for now, I figured a season-appropriate one would be a fun way to start off. Leave your suggestions for future themes in the comments!

Tonia: If you didn't already try it like this, I'm pretty sure that Sunday Sweets and Cake Wrecks should each be one word.

There's a mithspelling in your title---
unless you really meant "Sundway"

December 14, 2008 | Unregistered Commenterheartafire

LOL - whoops. Yeah, "Sundway" - I'm smooth like that.

We really should petition Blogger to include the title field in the spell check! ;)

I would like to see some really well made cakes from non professional people. Cakes that are not super slick and perfect but rather have charm and character, without being 'wreckish' I guess.
