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? ;)

This week we're again featuring some of the contributing bakers for the Cake Wrecks "World" Tour. (And be sure to check my previous posts for the cupcake providers, too. They're all fantastic.)

But she's also a master of the cute:

And the cool:

(Just to be clear: the guitar is cake. The guy is not.)

Heading over to the Dallas area, we have Bronwen Weber's Frosted Art Bakery. (You've probably seen Bronwen on TV sculpting cakey masterpieces, so really, she doesn't need much introduction.) Here are a few of my favs from her site:

Love these colors.

Mmm. Chocolate.

Check out all the detail in the petals, ribbons, and scroll work; I'm pretty sure that's what perfection looks like.

Next, for you Austin locals, we've got two great bakers. First, there's Nicole of Wicked Cakes:

She has a lot of fun, modern designs.


Love that flower!

And then Paloma of Coco Paloma Desserts:

Paloma likes to play with texture. Check this out:

And then there's this, which I for one think is fabulous:

It's titled simply "Ninja Bride."
Is this what geek love feels like? Why yes, I think it is. ;)
