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: (Video) GAME ON!

Anyone else out there love video games??

(By Un Jeu d'Enfant)

'Cuz if so, this post's for you.

 

Mortal Kombat:

(By Maridell's Cakes)

 

Disney Infinity:

(Baker unknown. Anyone recognize it?)

Seriously love this idea: you can set the character cupcakes on the game pads, just like the real system! SO FUN.

 

Skylanders:

(By Bellaria Cakes Design)

I've never played this one before, but these fun character cakes make me want to!

 

Here's another, also from Skylanders:

(By Dina Cimarusti - who was on season 7 of Face Off! SO COOL.)

 

Call of Duty:

(By Not Just Cakes By Annie)

Especially perfect for someone named Paul. Ha!

 

Minecraft:

(By The Violet Cake Shop)

It's a plethora of perfectly placed pixels! Swoon.

 

Mario Kart:

(By Enna's Cake Design)

Because that little Italian plumber never gets old.

 

Secret Agent Clank:

(By Vsem Tort)

I remember playing Ratchet and Clank eons ago - I had no idea Clank got his own title!

 

Legend of Zelda:

(By Studio Sweets, which sells those toppers on Etsy!)

Another classic, and talk about a perfect wedding cake! I love the "floating" sugar gems.

 

And finally, one of John's favorite games of all time:

Skyrim:

(By Baking Obsession)

I got John the Alduin statue this cake is based on last Christmas, so we're both pretty familiar with it - and neither of us could believe this was cake at first and not the real thing. It's that perfect.

Now, who wants to go play a game? :)

 

Happy Sunday, everyone!

Friday Favs 5/15/15

Some of my favorite new submissions this week.

 

If you have a daughter named Brandon, guess what you get asked the most?

I'm kind of loving the piping gymnastics the baker had to go through to fit all that on there. Do you think at any point she stopped to wonder... ?

Naaaah.

 

Uh, guys? Did I miss something? Are brain cakes for babies a thing now?

Because the pics of little Toby covered in red cake gore are seriously not safe for life.

 

Believe it or not, though, that's not the wreck. See, someone else wanted a cake just like that for their baby... but instead they got this:

It looks like a big mushy ball of Mac n' Cheese. Which, let's be honest, is WAY BETTER THAN BRAIN CAKES FOR BABIES, mmkay? Yeesh.

Ok, maybe the brain cake is too divisive of an issue.

So can we at least agree that THIS is wrong?

"Icing shots?!" With no cake?? FOR $2.00??

Whaddaya mean, you like that much icing? Are you INSAAAANE?

(Side Note: anyone else distracted by the "Dry Old German Chocolate" sign? I was about to be impressed by their honesty before I realized it's supposed to be "Day." Heh.)

Well, in the interests of minion harmony, let's end with a classic:

A birthday cake with "a big number 2 and stars on the sides."

I guess there wasn't room to write "stars" on both sides.
Shame.

 

Thanks to Jennifer B., Amanda N., Kathleen, K.T. for bringing us only the second-best stars.
