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:


And... wrinkly.


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

Sunday Sweets Celebrates Kids' Movies

Anyone else out there addicted to kids' movies? 'Cuz I admit it: I love 'em. Especially since they keep making so many amazing ones.

Besides, how can you NOT love Baymax?

(By Catherine's Cakery)

Seeing Big Hero 6 in the theater was a milestone for me, since I'd been avoiding theaters for years on account of my panic disorder. But I went to that movie, loved it, and didn't panic. So in his way, Baymax the Healthcare Robot helped me, too.

Gosh, that got sappy fast, huh? Sorry.



To quote a certain Despicable soundtrack: this cake makes me "Happpyyyyy!"

(By Cakes By Carol)



Sure, there are eleventy billion Frozen cakes out there, but check this out:

(By Carmen's Art Cakes)

It's based on the new short, Frozen Fever! Which I still haven't seen yet. I... need to fix that.


A fantastic plane from Planes:

Sometimes - like when I'm looking at that propeller - I have to remind myself we're looking at cake.


Another movie that had me dancing in my seat:

(By Sogni de Zucchero)

The sculpting on those figs is blowing me away.


Anyone remember The Gruffalo?

(By Fat Cakes Design)

He's from a kids' book-turned-animated-short, so that's one more for my to-watch list.


Next, the movie with my second-favorite Batman*:

(By Bake-a-boo Cakes)

LEGO Batman.

Although I'm also loving Unikitty up there!

[*Second favorite, because Michael Keaton foreverrrrr.]


Technically not a kids' movie, but who doesn't turn into a big kid over baby Groot from Guardians?

(By Cinnamon Square)

NOBODY, that's who.


A few months ago John and I finally watched Book of Life, and WOW. So good.

Just like this cake!

(By Little Cherry Cake Co)


And check out this gravity-defying Box Troll:

(By Little Cake Shop)

The sense of motion here is incredible; you expect to blink and see him flat on the pavement!


And finally, and most squee-worthy, BABY TOOTHLESS:

(By Fernanda Abarca)

I'd very much like to train THIS dragon, pretty please. (The little tongue! ACK! So cute.)


Happy Sunday, everyone!
