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? ;)

These Horrifying Peep Shows Just Retroactively Ruined Easter

Remember when Peeps were just sweet Easter treats? That was nice.

 

Which of these nightmarish displays will give YOU the most therapy fodder?

LET'S FIND OUT.

 

Innnnn this corner! Weighing in at a stiff seventy pounds of NOGAWDNO! He's freshly packed in ice and sporting his bunny ears! He's chomping through souls, sanity, and your last row of Peeps! HE IS...

FishyMcMurderFaaaaaaace!!

[waits for blood-curdling screams and "thuds" of people fainting to fade]

BUT WAIT.

A challenger appears!

In the other corner - no, uh, not that one, the one next to it - weighing in at 16 tons of fluff! He's ready to give a lickin', and good luck getting that image out of your brain ever!

He's bright pink and yellow, and his hair has never looked better! He IS lookin' at you! He'll follow you home, and refuse to take out the trash! HE IS...

Sunday Sweets: Some Bunnies To Love

As I sat down to write Sweets this week, I realized that we've done Easter Sweets for the last 7 years.
Here, here, here, here, here, here, and here.

So then I was all, "We should do something different," and Jen was all, "Whatever, man, you're writing it," and then I was all, "But I'm pretty sure our readers will mutiny if I write another Sweets," and she was all, "I'm trying to write a super offensive post, man, lemme 'lone."

 

So allow me to present:

  10 Bunny Cakes That Have Nothing To Do With Easter Besides The Fact That They Happen To Be Bunny Cakes And It Happens To Be Easter®

 

Judy Hopps

(By Zoe's Fancy Cakes)

From Zootopia, which Jen and I haven't seen yet, but we're totally going to tonight, right, Jen?

 

Bugs Bunny

(Baker unknown. Help?)

Ahh, a classic from my childhood. Back when shotguns and booze were regular Saturday morning cartoon fodder, and mom's idea of a fancy birthday cake was a box mix covered in tin foil.

What I'm saying is, count your blessings, Mia.

 

The White Rabbit

(By Sampo, originally posted here)

After seeing so many Disney versions of the perpetually late lagomorph, it's nice to see a more realistic take.

 

Roger Rabbit

(By Rosebud Cakes)

When I first saw this cake I thought it was pretty darned good. Then I realized it's fondant free and now I'm stunned. Absolutely brilliant.

 

Thumper

(By Cook For Love)

Aww, Thumper. I've never actually seen Bambi but everyone says how sad it is so I assume Thumper dies tragically by the end. Bummer.

 

The Velveteen Rabbit

(By Stella Baking Company)

I've also never read this book. It turns out I'm not as knowledgeable about rabbits as I thought. I'm going to go out on a limb and guess the book's about a rabbit, though. Who likes velvet.

Did I mention Jen found these cakes for me? Now I'm wondering if I'll know who the rest of these rabbits are...

 

My Melody

(By Humming Bread Custom Cakes)

Nope.

Looks like a cat in a bunny hat, though - are we sure that counts?

 

Miffy

(By Birthday Center Elite - I think.)

No idea here, either.

But the bunting (that's those little flags, check out my mad vocab) literally made me go "awww."

 

Peter Rabbit

(By Particular Cakes)

Oh, hey, it's Peter! Peter Rabbit!

Yeah I don't know him, either. Cool jacket, tho, bro.

Jen said I have to include this one, because "the wedding cake's my favorite, don't you DARE cut it."

(By Cake Central member PeterRabbit)

I like the cabbages that look like roses.

 

Ya know, maybe this whole "other rabbit" thing isn't working for me.

How 'bout just one Easter bunny for old times' sake?

(By My Sweet Art)

EGG-cellent.
(Jen made me write that, too. Sorry.)

 

Happy Easter, my friends!
