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? ;)

The Hunt Is Over

SHOT THROUGH THE HEART

 

And you're to blame!

 

Wreckers, you give love

A BAD NAME.

 

How did this start?

 

They look all the same!

 

 

You give love
a bad name
(bad name!)

 

You give love...

A BAD NAME.

 

Thanks to Anony M., Elizabeth, K.J., Jodee, Christy R., Anony M., Shari A., & Amy O., who really needs to explain those last wedding toppers to me. Are the two bucks supposed to be Robert & Stevie? And if so, why are they next to a hunter with a shotgun? ("Aw, look, your wedding avatars are about to be killed! SO SWEET.")

Or maybe the hunter and the tree are getting married, after he shoots a couple of deer? (The hunter, I mean, not the tree.) But why would a tree hugger even WANT to shoot deer? Did they just run out of bride-dragging-the-groom toppers? PLEASE HELP I AM SO CONFUSED.

Sunday Sweets: 12 Happy Spring Cakes

Are you Northerners thawing out up there? 'Cuz if so, I think we should celebrate with some Spring time Sweets! Woot woot!

(By Galia Hristova GuGi)

Would you LOOK at that gorgeous basket of flowers? Makes me wanna skip through fields of tall grass, or go strawberry-picking, or maybe even leave the house sometime this week. It's that good.

 

And hey, if it's still freezing where you are, then just consider these beauties a sign of warmer things to come.

(By A Wish and a Whisk)

These fantastical flowers are like heaven for my eyeballs. I would like one on a headband, STAT.

 

Of course, it's not all flutterbys and flowers; there are also those famous April showers.

(By Christian Sutjahyo)

And with an umbrella this fabulous, I think we'd all welcome a few extra sprinkles.
(See what I did there?)

 

The baker calls this one, "The Little Fairy of Rain:"

(By Silvia Mancini Cake Art)

D'awww. And look at the water ripples on the cake board! And that umbrella tier is so cleverly done, you'd think you could put your hand under it! Gorgeous.

 

Here's one for you fondant-free fans:

(By Queen of Hearts Couture Cakes)

That's all piped buttercream, and I can't get over the incredible texture on the butterfly and flowers!
Kind of like a latch-hook kit, right?

(Am I the only one who remembers those?)

 

Loving the textured tree tier on this one:

(By Cakes Alouisa)

And that leafy swag border!

 

For those of you "feathering the nest" this Spring:

(By Cake Fixation)

Wouldn't this be a sweet shower cake? Those hanging picture frames are the cutest!

 

Speaking of which, it doesn't get much cuter than a dancing hippo with a turtle admirer:

(By Custom Cake Designs)

Or is she ice-skating? Yeah, I think she's ice-skating. In a tiara. The way you're supposed to.

 

I'm told people like to picnic during Springtime. Now, I've never been on one, and this cake - adorable as it is - isn't doing much to convince me:

(By Heather's Cakes and Confections)

Though I'll admit the ants are almost kind of endearing here. ALMOST. ;)

 

Now lady bugs, on the other hand, are always welcome:

(By Pink Cake Box)

Especially on big bouquets of tulips.

 

Ok, one final fling of Springtime frippery:

(By Sweet Bakes)

Ahhhh.

Ok, now back to your regularly scheduled forecast.

Happy Sunday, everyone!
