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? ;)

From This Day Fourth

It's May the Fourth, my friends, and you know what that means.

Time to cut up some old Star Wars posters and jam 'em in icing!!

Just look how excited algae-dusted Jabba is.

(Or... wait, is that not his mouth? I mean, I think I see nostrils below it, so... ohhh, THERE'S his mouth, way down there! Oknevermind.)


Did you have something to add, Darth?

Didn't think so.


Of course I could show you more Star Wars wrecks, my dear minions, but instead I'm going to be a rebel [snerk] and show you some AWESOMENESS.

Like this:

And this:


And this!!


And now a Storm Trooper on the toilet reading Top Gear, because why not:

Let's hope their aim is better in the bathroom.



And finally, the most epic awesomeness of all:

Darth Vader dueling a Care Bear riding a My Little Pony AT-AT:


You continue to win the internet and at life in general, padawan Sarah.
(Remember her last few Vader cakes?)


So, to sum up:

May the 4th be with you.


(And hey, J.J., don't screw this up. We're counting on you.)


Thanks to April S., Desirae, Angela H., Ashley M., Heather P., Janet, Jess & Sarah, & Megan O. for the Force-full wreckporting.


Update from john: The guy on the toilet is not Stig. Stig wears a solid white jumpsuit and a motorcycle helmet. This guy is wearing a storm trooper outfit and a storm trooperish helmet. Also, there's a blaster on the back of the toilet. As everyone knows, Stig keeps a flame thrower on the back of his toilet. Totally different. Also, that is clearly a space toilet. You can tell by how spacey it looks. You're welcome. -john (thoJ)

Sunday Sweets: More Star Wars!

With the future of Star Wars looking better than it has in, lessee, when did Episode 1 come out, again? [evil grin] Well, anyway, it is definitely time to celebrate!


And when it comes to Star Wars, you just can't get any more classic than this kickin' Millenium Falcon cake:

"She may not look like cake, but she's got icing where it counts."


Or how about Luke's (edible!) X-wing crash-landed on a cakey Dagobah, complete with dry-ice smoke effects?

(By Luscious Layers Bakery)



Of course you can't have Dagobah without everyone's favorite pint-sized Jedi Master:

I admit it: I'm still a sucker for Ewoks.

Now who's eating who, huh?


Although I find most fans these days prefer a certain bounty hunter:

He's no good to me stale.


Let's all give a hearty "UTINI!" for this incredible Jawa:

And I'm sorry; I couldn't resist:

(By Mike's Amazing Cakes)



Can't decide on a single bad guy for your cake?
Why not combine three of 'em, like this?

(By Nichi Cakes)

Super cool.


On the other hand, does it get any cuter than R2-D2 in a bow tie?

(By Gateaux Inc.)

I think not. 


Ahh, but I'm afraid R2 has some SERIOUS new competition in the "adorable droid" category.

That's right, roll on out here, BB8!

(By Cake Rush)


Can't wait to see this little guy in action in the new movie.


Happy Sunday, everyone!
