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? ;)

That's One Small Leap For Jen... 

John: "What are you working on?"

Jen: "Finding cakes for National Moon Day."

John: "Ok... so what's that, and what does it have to do with Moon Day?"

Jen: [clicking] "Hang on, you'll see."

John: "This still doesn't..."

Jen: "Waaaait for it..."

John: "OH. Moon day, heh. But see, I think you may have mis..."

Jen: "Dude, you totally just said, 'Butt see'.

Both together: "Bwahahaa!"

John: "But seriously, you've got the wrong Moon Day. It's supposed to be the Moon Moon day. The one in the sky.

Jen: [still clicking]

John: "Jen."



John: "You win. Go back to butts."

Sunday Sweets Goes Under The Sea

Today Sunday Sweets really takes a dive...

(By Shani's Sweet Creations)

...into undersea sweetness!


Yep, we're going to celebrate all things beneath the waves, like colorful coral and friendly octopodes:

(By Jacqueline Marie's Custom Cakes)


Enormous hump-backed blue whales:

(By Ron Ben-Israel Cakes)


And a little of everything, like in this gorgeous hand-painted vignette:

(By My Sweet Cosette)



Prefer something more cartoony and cute? GOT IT:

(By Fantasticakes Cecile Crabot)

Is it wrong to admit that *I* want this cake? Or at least all the googly-eyed creatures? SO CUTE.


Ooh, now check out this stylin' modern design:

(By Planet Cake)

That trail of bubbles? Genius.


Speaking of modern, I'm digging this abstract mermaid and starfish topper:

(By Gulnaz Mitchell Cake Design)

It almost has a stained glass feel to it, right?


LOVE the colors in this stack of sea urchins:

(By Cakelava)

If you look closely, you can see colorful little fish near the base, too!


Of course we can't have an "Under the Sea" theme without a certain red-headed mermaid:

(By Fabricake, based on the art of Tim Shumate)

She's just a bit more grown-up in this version. ;)

I like how the art is layered to give it depth, almost like a paper-cutting.


What else do you find under the sea? Ship wrecks and pirate treasure, of course!

(By Roses & Bows Cakery)

The aging on this is beeeeeaauuutiful. The sprinkling of sand! The curled up "map!" I even like the green snaily guy.


And finally, the ultimate undersea Coral Reef cake:

(By Cakes By Kim Simons)

Complete with a swimming sea turtle topper!

There's so much to see on this one, I'm *still* finding hidden fish. And do I spy little moray eels?


Happy Sunday, everyone!
