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? ;)

Talk About Your Trunk Space, Check THIS Action Out!

Amanda ordered a Western cake to make any cowboy proud:


...but instead, got a boot to the head:

YEE- awwww.


Alisa asked to have this spooky Hello Kitty drawn on her daughter's cake:


...only to discover this Kitty's got flaws:

(And once you recover from the wang ears and teeny-tiny udder legs, can we talk about the writing on that propped-up clear plastic? Which is still misspelled?)


Tell me, have you ever seen such an adorable elephant cake?

And have you ever looked at your dryer exhaust hose and thought, "oooh, that looks tasty"?

Because if so, then YOU ARE IN LUCK:

Thanks to Amanda C., Alisa B., & Anony M. for proving the nose knows dryer hose.

Sunday Sweets Would Like A Word

It's National Dictionary Day, folks, so what better way to use our words than with beautiful cakes?

After all, cakes can say so much.


They can talk about what's important:

(By Mea Sculpture Cake Design)


Share what's in your heart:

(By Nashville Sweets)


...and do it in any language!

(By Le Dolci)

(My love language is cake. WHAT.)


Maybe it's your favorite saying:

(By Queen City Bakeshop)


Or a snippet of poetry:

(By M Cakes Sweets)


Or a favorite childhood story:

(By Sugar and Spice)


Maybe you know all you really need:

(By Mely's Cake Design)


Or you want to get dramatic with a single letter:

(By Mark Joseph Cakes)


And if you can't choose just one word (or two or ten)?

(By Chatter Cakes)

This works.


In fact, sometimes there's nothing more beautiful than blocks of handwritten text:

(By Lovely Cakes)


Look how romantic with all these great textures:

(By Yuma Couture Cakes)

Feathers and stone. I like it.


But let's end with something seasonally appropriate: an homage to Tim Burton's Nightmare Before Christmas:

(By Cupcakes By Louise)

For it is plain to see,
These cakes are Sweet as they can be!


Happy Sunday, everyone!
