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: Your Favorite Phone Games!

Our phones have come a long way, my friends.

Almost as far as today's cake art!

(By Zoe Clark Cakes)

Who wants a slice of rotary-dial deliciousness?

 

Of course, these days our phones look more like this:

(By Celebrate With Cake)

We've also passed the point of using our phones for actual phone calls, and I for one couldn't be happier. After all, what higher calling [snerk] could there be for a phone than super-addictive PHONE GAMES?

 

Give a yell if you see your favorite! (I won't hear you, but it should liven up the experience on your end.)

(By Viorica's Cakes)

Ahh, Candy Crush, you sweet, soul-sucking time waster. How I love thee. But I think I may love this cake even more. The little candies! The swirly lollipops!

 

Oooh, or there's this one:

(By Leesin & Ween of Sugar)

That peppermint swirl trim is killing me with cute.

 

Here's another angle:

More swirly goodness - and teensy bunting! Ah!

 

Now for a game as frustrating as Candy Crush is colorful:

(By Small Town Girl Bakery)

FLAPPY BIRD.

Love how the background and cake board really make the whole design. Such a great way to add more "oomph!"

Also, would you believe John is actually really good at this game? I think he does it just to annoy me; I've never gotten past the second pipe. >.<

 

An oldie but a cutie:

Where's My Water!

Those rubber duckies are the stuff that squees are made of.

 

And another cutie-pie puzzle game:

(By Rosebud Cakes)

Who remembers Cut The Rope?

 

And one more, because I never knew a sugar box cutter could be this delightful:

Here's another personal favorite:

(By Bohemia Cakes)

Plants vs Zombies! This cake is a perfect recreation of the game board, too. Why, I can almost hear the zombies' heads popping off. (Which is surprisingly adorable, btw.)

 

PvZ cakes have some of the best figure sculpting around. I want all of these:

(By Eunice Cake Designs)

Especially the Pea Shooters and grumpy Squash!

 

It turns out there's a Disney Tsum Tsum ios game, too, which is awesome, because now I can post this!

(By Guilt Desserts)

Dibs on the Donald!

(For you non-DizGeeks; Tsum Tsums are little plush dolls that look just like that.)

(And if you're a Donald lover, too, then check out my friend Darla's Donald cupcakes. Sooooo cuuuuute.)

 

Not technically a cake, but check out this incredible arrangement of oh-so-perfect Tsum Tsum macarons!

(By Le Sucre Du Patisserie)

I know we're always saying how we could never slice into the cakes on Sweets, but seriously. I could never eat these. I think I'd just coat them in epoxy and use them for decorations. Especially Tigger and Piglet.

 

And finally, the phone game to rule them all:

(By Jane Zubova, who has more geektastic gems featured here)

Angry Birds!

There are hundreds of gorgeous Angry Birds cakes out there, but this one wins the brass ring for sheer scale and creativity. Those pig carts on the back wall are blowing my mind! And look at all the tiny cakes and treats on the castle walls! Ah! SO GOOD.

 

Happy Sunday, everyone!

Friday Favs 8/28/15

Heather asked her bakery if they could add a unicorn to her cookie cake.

They said - and this is a direct quote - "Yes."

"YES."

So just so we're clear: the professional baking people said yes, they could add a unicorn to Heather's cookie cake.

NOOOOOOOOO

 

"Little did the princesses know that directly above their heads..."

"... lurked the tragically misunderstood tentacle volcano optometrist.

 

I hear it ain't easy.

 

"Hey Sal, this drunk melting blue cat just isn't weird enough, you know? Anything else we can add?"

AHA! Pirate chest hat!
PERFECT.

 

Occasions That Call For Sh*t Balloons:

- Your First Hemorrhoid
- Anniversary of Your First Hemorrhoid
- Someone Else Asked About Your Hemorrhoid
- The Hemorrhoid Cream Worked!
- Your Boss's Birthday

 

Thanks to Heather C., Marie S., Chris H., Joy J., & Michele A. for the crappy occasions.
