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: Wild Kingdom

Today is my birthday and Jen is taking me to Animal Kingdom because Jen is awesome.
(Also because the temperature here finally dropped below 100.)

So naturally, I have to post amazing animal cakes. Begin!

(By Mike's Amazing Cakes)

D'awwww. Look how cute! And now I want a flamingo. I wonder if you can litter box train them...


Prepare yourself for this next one:

(By Simple Wish Cakes)


So beautiful.

Also, look at the way the water in the painting comes out onto the cake board. So impressive.


Turtle time!

(By Wild Flour Cake Co.)

And check out all the different types of coral. Now I want to go snorkeling.


I feel like this next one might be the most majestic animal cake I've ever seen.

(By Highland Bakery)

Seriously. Look at the detailing and textures. Masterful, I tell you.



(By Gateaux Inc.)

"We're majestic, too..."

Yes. Yes you are.

Jen and I just went to the Georgia Aquarium and spent no less than 2 hours watching the otters frolic. Because frolic is the only word to describe what otters do. And float. They do a lot of floating.


Look! An armadillo!

(By Alliance Bakery)

Funny story. We have a motion sensor on our back porch light and when it turns on, most of the time it's one of these guys. The rest of the time, it's possums. And cats. And possibly ax murderers.


But you know what never wanders through my back yard?

(By Truly Scrumptious Designer Cakes)

Swans. Although, that would be really cool. And I can't even fathom how long it took to place those feathers. Awesome.


And now, an adorable zebra:

(Also by Mike's Amazing Cakes)

You know, sometimes I forget that these are all cakes. Can you believe the structural engineering that went into balancing that cake on one leg. That's why these bakers are the best of the best.


And finally, my favorite animal ever:

(By Avalon Cakes)

Just look at that airbrushing. Perfect.

More Halloween Madness

I think the sugar-high is really starting to kick in, you guys.

You can almost hear the insane giggling from behind the counter, am I right?


John thinks these are supposed to be maggots:

I think it's time to scroll down quickly and skip lunch.


Then there's this:


And this:

I've stared at that cookie for ages. Still have no idea what the baker was thinking.


Here's a fun party game:


I would, but there are children present.


Look, I'm not saying "Ouija" is the easiest word to spell, but you'd think they'd at least get it right on the second try:

And for those wondering what possessed [snerk] a bakery to make a Ouija Board display cookie in the first place: I'm not sure, but the fact that they added a "HELP" on the front is less than reassuring.
o.0 Someone wanna go check on them?

("Bring me an old priest, a young priest, a half gallon of milk, and some paper plates!")


And finally, why it must suck to have a Halloween birthday:

Remember, Kailey, you've got your whoooole life ahead of you.
Now, who wants a slice of grave stone?!
