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? ;)

A Letter Wrong And A Holler Short

When you get like 99% of it right, but all anyone can talk about is that ONE LITTLE MISTAKE:

Home bun!

 

Her name is Lacy:

Guess why she didn't go back to get it fixed.

Because she was LATE, that's why.
Sheesh, you people.

 

A true test of Dad's skills:

 

The best part of this next one? This was the counter display:

For someone who really doesn't like lemons.

(Is this like "Batter up?" Should we ask a couple Fluggers to weigh in?)

(And what's with the little hash marks on the right? Are the letters R and P demonstrating proper Puker technique?)

 

Alas, we must leave the great Puker Debate for now, because... IT'S TIME.

What time, you ask?

TIME TO...

Awwwww yeeeeeah.

Right, one of you start wailing on the harpsichord, someone else roast up a bushel of sheep dongs, and the rest of us are gonna go get shot by a crossbow and/or die of plague.

("Man, this themed party suuuuucks.")

Sunday Sweets: Oh. Em. GEODE.

There's a Sweet new wedding cake trend going around, you guys, and it totally rocks.

(By Intricate Icings Cake Design)

Geode cakes!

This is the one that went viral a little while back, and it's easy to see why. Soooo sparkly.

 

Ah, but check this drama out:

(By Three Tiers For Cake)

The rock veining, the gold leaf, the gold fox toppers? IT'S ALL WORKIN'.

 

And hey, who knew rock candy could look that elegant? Now I want someone to dip those stretchy candy necklaces in gold leaf and drape them over a champagne flute. Yeah. You guys get on that.

Speaking of rock candy, here's a fun ombre option:

(By Bridget Thibeault)

 

What's that? You want to see this in green?

(By Ettore's)

BOOM.

 

Geode toppers (also edible!) seem to be popular for smaller cakes:

(By Dhanya's Delights)

 

Or I also like this option:

(By Alana Jones-Mann)

 

Not exactly a geode, but check out this one with slices of rose quartz:

(By A Squad Bake Shop)

I'm resisting the urge to make a Steven Universe reference here, you guys. Just me?

 

Oooh, or how about this one with a crazy realistic Malachite inlay:

(By Ruze Cake House)

How??

 

But let's get back to geodes:

(By Sainte G.)

'Cuz those crystals on top are awesome. A real Fortress of Solitude vibe, am I right?

(Yes, that's another geek reference. WHAT.)

 

Another "WOW" moment, coming up:

(By Whisk Cake Company)

WOW.

 

And finally, my favorite geode of them all:

(By Sophia Fox)

Pink sparkly hearts, a watercolor fade, and gold leaf trim? YES PLEASE.

 

Hope you guys enjoyed your Sunday Sweets on the rocks! Happy Sunday!
