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: Movie Time

Uh, hello?

[tapping microphone] HellOOOooo! Is this thing on?

Huh. Well, apparently, everybody who reads this blog is either recovering from eggnog hangovers or camping in a secluded cabin in the wilderness with no internet service or toilet paper. So.

It's just you... and me.

[spritzing breath spray] [dimming lights] [slipping on red velvet smoking jacket]

Well, hello there. Come here often? Me, too!

So...seen any good movies lately?

Ah, I loved Mary Poppins when I was a kid. Sadly, I haven't seen it in like 20 years so I'm just gonna assume that this cake makes total sense.

Kung Fu Panda! Hand-painted landscapes! Nifty little scrolly things!

In case you weren't one of the eight people who saw A Bee Movie, this guy is from A Bee Movie. Which was aptly named. Unless maybe they'd gone with C or D movie, of course. [zing!] This cake, however, is A+ all the way.

Well, they did make a Phantom of the Opera movie. Which was pretty good, as I recall. By which I mean I recall lots and lots of cleavage. Mrow. Sadly, this cake is a bit of a bust in the cleavage department, though. [bah-dum-CHA]

Awww, check out this adorable Wizard of Oz cake and cupcakes! Love the "tornado" at the bottom. (Is it wrong that I'm singing "The Wizard and I" in my head right now?)

Bom ba bom bommmm, bom ba BOMMMM

Ok, now I have the Raiders theme stuck in my head. And this cake is face-meltingly awesome, too. (See what I did there?)

Sub'd by Siubhan B. and made by Cool Cakes

Wow. This Mad Hatter's hat from the latest Alice in Wonderland movie is the sum of awe. Or awesome. Or both. I'm digging the tiny tea sets and the "fabric" texture.

Sub'd by Brenda T. and made by The KupKake Tree

Oooh, so pretty! So life-like! It's almost like you could just reach out and touch it, you know?

And finally, my most favorite favorite:

Sub'd by Terri J. and made by Sugar

Seriously. Bubo here (the mechanical owl from Clash of the Titans) just might be my favorite Sweet ever. But, ya know, I dig owls. In fact, maybe I should see the remake sometime...

Oh. Or not.

Have a Sweet to nominate? Then send it to Sunday Sweets [at] Cake Wrecks [dot] com.

It just hit me! All the detail on these cakes - they are like mini versions of Roes Parade floats!

I LOVE Julie and Blue Cupcake! Her cupcakes are the yummiest EVER! (as you can see by my use of all caps, I really like her cupcakes)

December 26, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

the wizard of oz cake is adorable. very cute, and a good use of cupcakes. i know they are not a favorite on this blog! unless, of course, done right. (and since they were featured on a sunday, i guess that's a good sign.)

thanks as always...

Wicked and the Wizard of Oz are inextricably linked in my mind :)

December 26, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterElaine

Gee--didn't know it was John until he said he put on a smoking jacket...UGH! Merry Christmas! (little late) More fun wrecks in 2011 !!!

"The Wizard and I" is from "Wicked", not the Wizard of Oz. I love both the movie and the play. (The books, not so much.)

December 26, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterCarol

Aww I love that owl from the original Clash of the Titans. Reminds me I need to watch the copy my hubby bought me for our anniversary. I love all of these but will happily take the owl off their hands lol.

Can I just say that I had "Bump Ba Dump Bummp, Dump, ba dump" going through my head before you even wrote it.

Jenn NEVER see the remake of Clash of the Titans! It was AWEFUL! Plothole, cardboard cutout characters and really no development whatsoever.

I do love the Bubo cake though!

December 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJennifer

I definitely used to work with the girl that made the Phantom cake! Ashlee does fabulous work! she made a harry potter birthday cake for me along with another girl at the bakery and my mom's sewing basket cake! both were tooo cute and sweet..just like her!

I absolutely LOVE Bubo. I think that's my favorite cake I've seen. :D I cannot even begin to tell you how much I love the original Clash of the Titans or how many times I've seen it. Thanks for sharing!

December 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterRachel H.

You should have had this post last Sunday, before we rented the Clash Of the Titans for my birthday, last Tuesday! We wasted $2 on it! It was OK but not something I ever want to see again. Now, Mary Poppins I could watch every day!

December 28, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnna

I love them all, but am in shock and awe over a cake with cupcakes being added to Sunday Sweets. :P

December 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterDaisy

I usually come here to feel better about myself and my terrible cake decorating skills, and yet today, I leave here feeling completely inadequate again... haha! Some of these are really cool.

In the remake of Clash of the Titans the role of Bubo the owl was replaced by a Bond girl, (Gemma Arterton.) Think about it! She's the owl!

December 30, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterBoon

I have to say I had the GLORIOUS pleasure of eating some of that Pollen Jock (Bee Movie) cake - Amanda from Bluebird makes cakes that taste even BETTER then they look (hey I have had the joy of eating 3 different versions plus some cupcakes in the past year!). The woman is an absolute star!

Love it all!

December 30, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterDanita

OMG! I adore owls also and Bubo is AMAZING! So much so I need to CAPITALISE! And the 'Phantom' cake is so so good. I also adore PotO. *sigh*

(In my head I just made a cake that incorporated all the things I loved. I just laughed out loud and got stared at my the people walking by. hehehe).

December 31, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMissRon

soooo much awesome!

December 31, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJennySRP

A GOOD cupcake cake? That's impossible! The world is imploding on itself! Flying hippopotami! Edible school food! Arrrgh!

January 1, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Phantom cake made me squee.
Even though the movie is crap compared to the play and book.
Especially to the book.

And I agree! We Phans DEMAND a Phantom themed Sunday Sweets post!

(...I'm a little sleep deprived today. lol)

Catching up on my CW reading...

I love that you're singing a song from Wicked. Love it :)

What better way to celebrate the freezing deaths of hundreds with a "Titanic" birthday cake?
