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 Goes FULL UNICORN

Have you noticed unicorns and rainbows are all the rage again lately? There are unicorn cafes, unicorn drinks - heck, I even spotted a unicorn grilled cheese. o.0

Isn't enough enough?

The answer, of course, is no.

NO AMOUNT OF UNICORNS IS EVER ENOUGH.

(By I love Cakes by Sheila)

Squeeee!

 

Yes, this Lisa Frank-loving woman-child is jumping on the technicolor bandwagon today, peeps, because look at these unicorn macarons:

(By Mac Lab Bakery & Cafe)

They have Fruity Pebble manes! Ahhh!

 

And look at this watercolor drip deliciousness:

(By Truly Scrumptious Cakes By Design)

Pastel rainbow heaven!

 

You know that thing where someone takes one awesome thing and mashes it together with another awesome thing?

Well, I give you:

(By Vickie Liu)

Unicorn Ice Cream Cone Cookies.

 

Or how about these sweet little cake pops?

(By Just Add Sugar)

The little rosy cheeks! Ah!

 

A lot of so-called Unicorn treats are really just rainbow-colored food, and while I will never complain about rainbow-colored food, I do like that this Sweetness at least has a twisty unicorn horn on top:

(By D Bakers Sweet Studio)

Those rainbow tiers are perfection! And do I spy cotton candy? OooOOOoooh.

 

Who else suddenly wants to nuzzle a cupcake?

(By Lady Berry Cupcakes)

 

Now, I'm not saying these donuts really look like unicorns, but they're so stinkin' cute I think we can agree they score a Hole-In-One.

(By Christina's Cupcakes)

Get it? A hole in one? AAAAAI'll stop now.

 

I've never really been onboard with "naked" cakes... until now:

(Featured here, but the baker isn't listed. Anyone know?)

D'awww. If ever a cake deserved to be naked, it's this one.

 

And finally, let's end with the cake that turned me into a starry-eyed six-year-old again:

(By With Love And Confection)

It has meringue wings! And a mermaid crown! EEEEE!!!

Happy Sunday, everyone! May your week be as magical - and as colorful - as these unicorns!

Some of my favorite new submissions this week:

 

Ever get the feeling something's missing?

Like the second cake Jessie ordered?

Or any semblance of reading comprehension?

 

LEGO Batman is all the rage right now, so here:

...something to rage over.

(Or maybe sh** a brick? I'll show myself out.)

 

And finally, when you ask for "The Cake Is Not A Lie," (a classic Portal reference) and get what I'm pretty sure is the creepiest thing I've ever read:

Just keep telling yourself that.

 

While you wrestle with that nightmare fuel...

...appropriate Portal song is appropriate:

(If you're super confused right now, play the game. Trust me. It's amazing.)

 

Thanks to Jessie A., Jeff E., & David E. for the most perfect song setup of all time. This was a triumph. I'm making a note here: "HUGE SUCCESS."
