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 Hearts Valentines Day

This post is going to be a little mushy, you guys:

(By Sweet Delights Cakery)

I mean, it's made out of CAKE.

[bah dum CHA!]

[What that was genius.]



Yes, Valentines day is coming, and that means lots of heart-to-hearts:

And cuddly teddy bears:

...and roses! Can't forget the roses:

(By Made With Love)

That little heart dangle is everything.


Which isn't to say all Valentines are the same, of course. You can even - GASP - have a Valentine cake that isn't red or pink:

Yessss. What do you think, sweet and rustic?

(By De La Creme Creative Studio)

...or bold & chic?


If no one else says it I will:

(By Erica OBrien Cake Design)

This is cute as a button.
And so many types of buttons! All placed so perfectly!


Oooh, and more quilling! Yes!

(By The Violet Cake Shop)

I love seeing paper art made edible. So many great textures!


Oooh, and here's one inspired by the art of Romero Britto:

(Found here, anyone know who made it?)

SO FUN. And that is some seamless fondant work!


And finally, a little chalkboard-and-ruffles action:

(By Il Laboratorio Di Raffy)

D'awww. This one has a little of everything, and you might recognize the character from your Facebook sticker options. He's one of my favorites, Bigli Migli. :D

Happy Sunday, everyone! Hope you enjoyed the love, and here's hoping your Valentines week is extra Sweet.

Went to an engagement party and sadly, the adorable couple didn't have a cake as adorable as these. If I could, I'd send them one of these.
Except the Britto, I'm keeping that.
