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? ;)

That's A Phallus - See?

"Hey, Barb, the customers are complaining your butterfly design looks too childish."

"So if you can try to make it more appealing to adults, and not just to three-year-olds, that'd be great. K? Thaaanks."

"Uh, Barb? WE NEED TO TALK."

 

Thanks to Ashlee B. for the cock-up.

Sunday Sweets For Summer Weddings

I suppose technically summer is almost over, minions, but ermergersh, it sure doesn't feel it.

So let's look at some cool summer wedding cakes, and imagine all of these with a heaping scoop of ice cream on the side. :D

 

Starting with the classiest dragonflies this side of the 1920s:

(By Mira Que Tarta)

I want to wear this whole cake in my hair. Yes, it would be awkward. BUT WORTH IT.

 

(By Erin Bakes)

Daisies! John's gonna be so happy.

 

Love this sweet chalkboard style:

(By My Sweet Art)

 

And this gold leaf and pale peach reminds me of a warm summer sunset:

(By Sweet Bakes)

 

I feel like summer needs some bold, vivid colors, though. You know, the kind that smack you in the eyeballs with pure awesome? Like this:

(By Julia Marie Cakes)

 

Though I suppose the happiest summer shade has got to be yellow. Am I right?

(By Rose Gateaux)

And how perfect are those gray succulents with it? Mmmm.

 

I will forever drool over Emerald City green:

(By Bellaria Cakes Design)

::Drooooool::

 

And then my favorite color in the world comes along:

(By Eva Salazar)

ORANGEY GOODNESS!

And I don't know how they did that shimmery texture in the middle, but YES.

 

Now some pinks and oranges and greens?

(By Cakelava)

And all that textured white? Ahhhh. Yep. I'll take that, too, please.

 

Any Monet fans out there?

(By Sweet Disposition Cakes)

I like how velvety those lily pads looks. I want to pet them.

 

And last but never least, my favorite today goes... to the flamingos:

SQUEE! Hand-painted perfection. This has undone the damage of a hundred tacky lawn flamingos, all in one fell swoop.

 

Happy Sunday, everyone! Stay cool out there!
