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 Hops To It

Happy Easter, cake lovers!

Don't worry if you didn't get a basket this year; I've got you covered:

(By The Clever Little Cupcake Company)

With a bonus little lamb! Squee!

 

We've also got a sweet hand-painted bunny:

(By Ludmilla Schmalz)

 

And something for you coloring book fans:

(By The Hobby Baker as part of the Easter Coloring Book Collaboration)

Seriously, how fun is this?!

 

There are so many gorgeous Easter cookies out there that I had to include at least one - and these are the prettiest little things I've seen in ages:

(By Irena "Gingerbread Heart")

That delicate piping! And the cut-outs!

 

Any carrot cake lovers out there?

(By Cake Heart)

I'm digging the texture (how'd they do that?) and the "paper" carrot fans.

 

For those who need a BIGGER basket:

(Baker Unknown. Anyone recognize it?)

Remember to share. (And dibs on the bow!)

 

Did you know an egg is the perfect shape for a dapper bunny?

(By Always With Cake)

Neither did I! But now I want to snuggle him.

 

This little cutie has the sweetest flower arch:

(By Sweet Art Lab)

Love her ears and that bright green grass.

 

And here's a colorful bunny hutch:

(By Inspired By Cake)

Pastel paneling and an eggs-cellent topper; I like the different sizes.

 

And finally, a festive Easter... rooster?

(By Cleopatra Cakes)

Aww yeeeeah. So gorgeous! And he's got an egg (with blue poppies!), so this totally counts.

 

Happy Easter, everyone! I hope your Sunday is extra Sweet!

The Great Easter Fleecing (aka, Better Run, Buns)

Oh, how the Easter tables have turned, sweet cheeks.

That's right, while you bunnies were off terrorizing chicks, someone bigger and badder moved to the top of the bakery chain.

 

So now it's YOUR turn to face eggs-termination.

Not to mention more of my Easter puns.

 

PREPARE...
...for the LAMB-ENTATION.

MWAH-HA-HAA!

 

 

You've heard the expression, "I'll have your guts for garters?"

These sheep will have your mug for a mini dress.

 

And they'll give "carrotbrain" a whole new meaning:

Ouch. Talk about an earful.

 

Don't be fooled by those cutesy bows and flowers:

 

That dude will REARRANGE YOUR FACE.

Ewe better believe it.

 

Of course, some of you bunnies could use a little face re-arranging.

I mean, what the heck, Carl?

And what kind of a bunny name is Carl?

 

This isn't to say lamb cakes are evil, of course:

...they're just grumpy.

 

Well, except Vladof.

He's definitely evil.

 

Thanks to Lisa H., Mary B., Shelley R., Debby C., Elizabeth S., Dawn F., Jessica S., Scott G., Sharon L., Julie C., & Suli C., who bet Vladof is one of those shifty smoking lamb cakes. He's got that air of mystery about him.
