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? ;)

7 Seriously Ugly Wedding Cakes To Make Your Day Better

Wow, you guys really like your wedding wrecks, don't you?

And by "your" wedding wrecks, I of course mean someone ELSE'S wedding wrecks.

Because you are terrible, terrible people.

We must be related.

 

Now, remember, a wedding cake is the most important cake in a person's blah-de-blah-look at this wreck:

On the bright side, there are cupcakes.

On the top side, there's this:

I think it says "M and H."

Why did the baker use "and" instead of an ampersand?
The world... may never know.

 

Ever wonder what a cake would like like wrapped in wet tissue paper?

WONDER NO MORE.

 

This next one is Smurf-tastic:

In fact, I believe the bride's exact words were, "So help me, I'm gonna smurfin' SMURF that smurfing baker!"

 

So...

...that happened.

 

The bride asked for steampunk:

She got steamed poop.

 

Every time I see a wedding cake like this, I think the same thing:

If only that camouflage worked.

 

At least it didn't have a weedy deer skull on it, though!
AHAHAHAHAHAWAIT:

The swan pillars are a nice touch.

The intestine topping, not so much.

 

Thanks to an anonymous bride, an anonymous wedding guest, Katie F., Judy M., another Anony M., Shari A., & Ashley P. for helping me give brides-to-be everywhere nightmares. SLEEP TIGHT, LADIES.

Sunday Sweets: Favorite Movie Villains!

Sometimes it's good to be bad, and these fabulous villains are here to prove it.

(By Le Torte di Renato)

Such impressive modeling skills - check out the poor unfortunate souls on the lower right!

 

Tempting as it was to do all Disney villains, I had to branch out - if only so I could include this guy:

(By Kristie Kent, but I can't find a website for her. Anyone know?)

Loki!

And let me tell you, this is one of the most ingenious decorating techniques I've ever seen, combining a 2D edible image with 3D modeled sugar paste. It's brilliant, I tell you. BRILLIANT.

 

All these years later, and this guy STILL freaks me out:

(By Luiza of Country House Cakes)

 

But everyone loves a good Sumerian Deity Destructor form!

(Submitted by Natalie C., made by Iced Over)

AKA Staypuft.
(Yes, yes, I know: my geek is showing. ;))

 

I used to think Vader was the ultimate bad guy, but these days a certain bounty hunter is giving him a Kessel run for his money:

(Sub'd by Michelle M., made by Fancy Cakes By Lauren)

"We love you, Boba Fett!"
"I know. But you're no good to me dead."

 

It's not often the bad guy smells like strawberries:

(By Cakes with Character)

 

And the purple minions were pretty much bad guys, right?

(By Tina of 13 Baking)

Or at least grumpy.

Yep, definitely grumpy.

 

Care to roll the dice on an Oogie Boogie cake?

(By The Bean Counter Bakery)

 

Of course, when it comes to comics, only one bad girl reigns supreme:

(By NerdAche Cakes)

Harley Quinn, puddin!

 

I thought about looking for Poison Ivy, too, but then I decided this Audrey II from Little Shop of Horrors was even better:

(By CW reader Katy Salzo, made for her niece)

FEED US, SEYMOUR.

 

And finally, fresh from her new movie, there's the Jolie-ified Maleficent herself:

(By Cécile Beaud)

 

Being bad has never been so beautiful.

 

Happy Sunday, everyone!
