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: Farmed Out

[singing] Old McDonald had a farm...

Submitted by Alison L., made by Blue Cupcake


And on this farm he had some animals:

This shows that your cake doesn't have to be big, sculpted, or multi-tiered to be awesome. Love it!


With a "baa baa" here:

By the always-amazing Bakerella

They're cake balls. Unbelievably cute, fluffy cake balls.

And a "cluck cluck" there:

Sub'd by Nancy D., made by Carolyn Mustopa

It's a wedding cake! How very City Slickers.

Here a "neigh:"

Made by Wrecks reader Joanne P.

There an "apple:"

Made by Heidi Miller

It was inspired by the song "Big Yellow Taxi." Gorgeous!

Everywhere a "barrel of ducks wearing cowboy hats with a bar of soap:"

Sub'd by Brenda, made by Cakes Unleashed

Before you ask, the "water" is pulled sugar covered with piping gel. Genius.

Old McDonald...

Made by Chocolate Pi

Oops... sorry. Sometimes I get my McDonalds mixed up.

Well, finally, here's a bonus Sweet for all you Farmville addicts enthusiasts:

By Flores & Aromas

I'm digging those carrots.

Get it? "Digging?"

Sorry; my sense of humor is firmly rooted in puns

Get it? "Rooted?"

I had to show these to my son and he loved them. He is turning 3 next month and keeps asking me for a farm cake.
I especially loved the one with the cow on top and the horses all around. My son thought one of them was an elephant. Don't know how he figured that. I wish I had the skills to make one like that for him, but I have to settle for a frosted cake with plastic animals on it.

Flyer is a horse. She made it for his birthday! He's the one on top and his barn buddies are the others.

These cakes are SO CUTE!!! I love that first one. I have GOT to learn how to make those animals.

The Micky D cake surprised me, but it's no less awesome.

I happened across this a few minutes ago through a google search and saw that our McDonalds cake was tagged through cake wrecks.. I must say I was very excited to see that. A friend told me about the site a few months ago and I've loved it ever since, briefly wondered if we'd ever see one of our cakes on here. I guess that is now one thing I won't have to wonder about anymore :D
So in summary, this whole entry is super cute and amusing.
Thanks from Chocolate Pi!

It's some nice decorating, but that MacDonald's cake almost made me throw up a bit in my mouth.
