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? ;)

When July Is Forthcoming

It's America's birthday, e'erbody!

Don't you hate it when you get to the party and/or bakery and everyone's started drinking without you?

 

Of course, most folks know today simply as:

4th July of.

Or July 4th of.

Your choice.

 

Yes, friends, today is a day to salute all nations, but mostly America. Preferably with a glorious three-hour finale, condensed into a minute and a half. (OBSCURE MUPPET JOKE HEYOOOO)

"You are all WEIRDOS."

 

Today is a day of fireworks, fun, and patriotic grilled meat... um... cakes. Obviously.

"You know what this 4th of July sh*t grill needs? A FUZZY PURPLE BORDER HEYOOOO!"
- a drunk baker, probably

(John: "You already used the 'heyooo' thing, take that out."
Me: IT'S MY BLOG HEYOOOOO
John: "...."
Me: "Pass me my drink, farm boy. HEYOOOOO."
John: "No. You've had enough tea."
Me: "NOOOOOOOO HEYOOOOO"
John: "I've quit better jobs than this.")

 

So whatever you're up to today, folks, just remember:
Today is also the day we celebrate the great Will Smith movie.

Just as soon as we remember how to spell it.

 

Thanks to Matthew C., Julie A., Samantha W., Katie S., & Ashleigh G. for reminding me what movie to watch tonight. HEYOOOOO.

Sunday Sweets: Disney Wedding Cakes

When you know you'll never be too old for Disney, but still want to keep it elegant:

A beautifully subtle design for Lady and the Tramp lovers:

(By WDW Resorts - specifically, The Grand Floridian)

 

Ever wanted Cinderella's feathered friends to lend YOU a hand?

(By WDW Resorts)

All together now: D'awwww.

 

This Beauty and the Beast homage has the famous song lyrics handwritten on top:

(By Gimme Some Sugar)

...but the skirt ruffles at the bottom are my favorite. SO GOOD.

 

Can't decide on a favorite movie? Then why not have all your favorite characters?

(By Story Teller Cakes)

This silhouette style is incredible! I like the unexpected touches of teal.

 

Or maybe you prefer the classic Cinderella's castle:

Can't go wrong with this "something blue."

 

But I think you just might love Cindy's carriage even better:

(By WDW Resorts)

WOWIE. The gilded coach is definitely the icing on top, but check out those curves and ruffles! I could stare at those beautiful textures all day.

 

This next one was inspired by one of my favorite Disney artists, Tim Rogerson:

(By WDW Resorts)

I love the art deco feel. Gorgeous.

 

And this one was inspired by the design of It's A Small World:

(By WDW Resorts)

Ear worms aside, Small World is one of the most beautiful original rides, and this design captures it perfectly.

 

FACT: Just about anything related to the lantern scene in Tangled makes me cry:

(By Sweet Fix)

::Sniffle::

 

And finally, a more light-hearted approach to the classic wedding castle:

(By WDW Resorts)

Now that promises a great big beautiful tomorrow, right there.

 

Happy Sunday, everyone!
