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: Castles & Fairies

Continuing in our fantasy theme, here's a gorgeous cake from Suka that also could have gone in last week's dragon post:

But hey, it's got a sweet castle on it, too.
(Thanks to Adrianne P. for being the first of dozens to send this in!)

Shallyse G. sent in what I'm going to call a fairy castle, just so I can include it here:

(By Sarah of The Little Bakehouse. More pics in her Flickr stream.)

Addie F. found this adorable little garden fairy, although I can't tell if she's on a cupcake, cake, or is just a topper:

(From Dulce Decoracion's Flickr stream, where there are lots more amazing figurines and cakes.)

And Reginia B. found this funny little "crashed fairy" number:

(By Sandra of Socake)
Heh, you can almost see those little feet kicking and hear tiny muffled shrieks, can't you? :)

Oh, hey, we need some more castles, don't we? Ok, check out this cutie out from Sang of Sang's Cakes:

She made it for her daughter's 4th birthday. I like that it's so colorful, and all the little details like the furled flags.

And Michele L. found one of the coolest compositions I've seen: a castle coming out of a fairy tale book:

It's by Let Them Eat Cake, and I'm sorry I don't have a larger photo to share. I bet the details are gorgeous.

Thanks again to all of you who submitted fantasy cakes! Tune in next week for some Lord of the Rings Sweets - and feel free to submit any LOTR cakes you think are Sweets-worthy.
