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? ;)

Mostly Armless

John and I are celebrating Valentine's day a little differently this year, minions.

See, John's having surgery this afternoon, so tomorrow he'll be trussed up sleep-drooling in the recliner, while I eat chocolate and plan elaborate scenarios to convince him the zombie apocalypse happened while he was unconscious.

 

If you're wondering how this is different from any other Valentine's, then clearly you know us well and we should hang out sometime. (I could use fresh zombie faces.)

Yep, our Valentine's day will include lots of complicated straps and ice cubes and... hang on, that sounds kinky.

 

What I mean is, we're going to be trying out some new machinery in the bedroom.

But not like that.

 

Look, I'm just going to be restraining John in a loving manner and force-feeding him heavy narcotics along with macaroni and cheese, but DON'T GET THE WRONG IDEA.

 

We're both consenting adults.

 

And I'm sure John will be fine.

Eventually.

 

Anyway, just didn't want to give you guys the wrong idea.

Also, I just realized I never mentioned John's surgery is on his shoulder, so my BRILLIANT title pun has gone unappreciated this entire post. Curses.

Ah well.

 

Thanks to Jen K., Jennifer H., Joan J., Alessandra V., Maggie L., Chenoa C., & Elisabeth W. for reminding us that sometimes, love hurts.

Sunday Sweets Hearts Valentines Day

This post is going to be a little mushy, you guys:

(By Sweet Delights Cakery)

I mean, it's made out of CAKE.

[bah dum CHA!]

[What that was genius.]

Ahem.

 

Yes, Valentines day is coming, and that means lots of heart-to-hearts:

And cuddly teddy bears:

...and roses! Can't forget the roses:

(By Made With Love)

That little heart dangle is everything.

 

Which isn't to say all Valentines are the same, of course. You can even - GASP - have a Valentine cake that isn't red or pink:

(By Spongy Affairs)

 

Yessss. What do you think, sweet and rustic?

(By De La Creme Creative Studio)

...or bold & chic?

 

If no one else says it I will:

(By Erica OBrien Cake Design)

This is cute as a button.
And so many types of buttons! All placed so perfectly!

 

Oooh, and more quilling! Yes!

(By The Violet Cake Shop)

I love seeing paper art made edible. So many great textures!

 

Oooh, and here's one inspired by the art of Romero Britto:

(Found here, anyone know who made it?)

SO FUN. And that is some seamless fondant work!

 

And finally, a little chalkboard-and-ruffles action:

(By Il Laboratorio Di Raffy)

D'awww. This one has a little of everything, and you might recognize the character from your Facebook sticker options. He's one of my favorites, Bigli Migli. :D

Happy Sunday, everyone! Hope you enjoyed the love, and here's hoping your Valentines week is extra Sweet.
