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? ;)

Super Bowls & Superb Owls

The age-old battle is upon us once more, minions:

Football vs Cute Owls

Well today? YOU GET BOTH.

Here's one for you Falcons fans:

(By The Art of Cake by Tyiea)

Which is also a bird, but less cute.


Now for you Patriots fans:

Then come back for this Sweetness:

(By Blissfully Sweet)



And also for THIS FACE:

(By Izzy's Cakes)

I very much want to snuggle her. Then chew on her feathers. Is that weird?


The Falcons get some sharp looking cupcakes:

While the Patriots really stack up:

Look out, though, 'cuz this cutie has his game face on:

(By MOLI Cakes)

[grabby hands] WANT.


Now, I wanted to end with a cake of an owl playing football, but alas, I couldn't find one.
So instead, here's an owl clearly doing a touchdown dance:

Hope your Super Bowl/Superb Owl Sunday is extra Sweet, everyone!

Definitely a day for superb owls. And physics. How'd they do the last one? Sooo cool!

February 5, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterZippy

Owls? Does that mean you want the Falcons to win?

February 5, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterMarie

Loved this! =-)

I am all about the cute (Valentina!), but have to give props for the mad skills of the decorator of that football cake. That thing is perfect.

Is number six a snowy owl sitting on a pecan pie? It's pretty, but I wouldn't want to eat the pie after the owl flies off.

SuperB Owls for me.
Those are gorgeous.

February 5, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterMoonfl9wr912

Oh, yes...I've made my pick: the "Izzy's Cakes" owl is to fly for!

I am obviously team Superb Owl since I am one, being a graduate of Warren Wilson College. But also because where I live there are more owls than football fans.

OOH! Izzy's feathers look SO real! Seriously, these cakes so absolutely perfect. I'd hate to cut into any of them.

I don't know anything about football but I am pretty sure that's not a touchdown dance so much as it's an owl responding to being hit by lightning --- explains the charred feathers and odd pose. Even so that is a delightful little owl and even lightly toasted owls beat the Super Bowl in my book....

Still mourning the loss of My Chargers to Los Angeles.
That is all.

We actually have neither the Super Bowl OR superb owls in my house (owing to a complete lack of interest in football for the one & a complete lack of owls for the other), but instead watch the Puppy Bowl on Animal Planet. (This year, they've added an adopt-a-thon.) This has been a tradition in my house for the past several years. It helps if you have young girls who SQUEEE at the sight of cute puppies.

I do love football but after this I am Team Owls after seeing these beauties!

February 5, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterKyle

Go Sports!

February 5, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterMudmusher

Perfection!! Thanks. (I even like the football ones!) All of the owls look like they are ready to deliver Hogwarts Letters. :-D

February 5, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterKaren

Hmm,wondering if you were in 'ca-hoots' with the Puppy Bowl people combining these two subjects, or just prescient! :) The mascot for one of the puppy teams was a rescued owl! I think the other mascot was a chinchilla, also rescued.

Blue Sheep Bake Shop! That's in my home town!!! <3

Wow, these are all beautiful. I love the Wilson football from Blue Sheep Bake Shop.

I'm a Pats fan but will readily admit I'm Jonesin' for those Falcons jersey cupcakes...
