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? ;)

When Mickey Mouse Turns Into A Real Bozo

Jessie ordered this cute kitty design from her bakery's book:

 

Her bakery ran out of the printed paper, though, and then I guess also people who know how to decorate cakes:

Yowch. And I don't think that candle placement is helping any, Jessie. Do you have any large house plants instead? Maybe a pinata or two?

 

Shannon ordered a Minecraft sheet cake, which usually looks something like this:

 

Instead, she got what appears to be an Oscar-the-Grouch skin carpet on a dirty tile floor:

Double "yowch."

 

And finally, Jay ordered a true classic: a Mickey Mouse cake like this:

 

Somehow I think Jay's baker heard "Bozo the Clown," though:

 

...because THIS IS UNCANNY:

Thanks to Jessie W., Shannon M., & Jay F. for that case of "mouse-taken" identity.

(Yes that pun was tortured and I'm not even sorry.)

Sunday Sweets: Disney Princess Wedding Cakes

I love Disney wedding cakes, I admit it. So I thought I'd feature some today inspired specifically by the Disney princesses. Aww yeeeeaah. Princess powers go!

[By I Believe It's Cake in LA, California]

Aww, how sweet is this? Cinderella's blue birds and pink ribbon add the perfect finishing touches - and if you look closely, the top filigree design looks like her pumpkin coach!

 

Or how about this Beauty:

[By Chocomoo Cakes in Sheffield, UK]

Fairy lights, roses, and allll the sparkly glitter on the middle tier. I approve.

 

I don't know if this next one's a wedding cake, but it'd be perfect for a Princes and the Frog theme:

[By Sugar Couture in Brooklyn, NY]

I like that pearly finish, it gives it a sweet glow.

 

This next one is pure romance and drama for a subtle Snow White theme:

[By Cake-A-Licious in Utah (now closed), featured here]

WOW. Digging all the shades of red, and the crisp gold "I Do" on the apple topper.

 

Gotta have a classic Cinderella's castle cake, right?

[By Disney Weddings]

This is the definition of "dreamy"; it's floating on icing clouds, and those lights! Hnnnng.

 

Would you have an almost-black wedding cake? I think I would, if it looked like this:

 

It's warm and real and bright, you guys. Like the world has somehow...shifted.

(Who's singing with me?)

[By Sweet Fix in Virginia]

Yep, the lantern scene from Tangled gets me every time. Plus that big one on the side lights up!

 

The briars on this Briar Rose (aka Sleeping Beauty) cake are so, so good:

[By The Disneyland Hotel]

Perfect theming, and it's a metaphor for their life together, right? Where everything is coming up roses?

 

I always try to feature cakes where the actual CAKE is the cool part, not just the topper. I'm making an exception for this next one, though, because LOOK HOW CUTE:

[Made by Logan Kendell. Maybe. Possibly.]

 

Sebastian is hugging the little figurines, just like in the movie!

This... this may be the cutest thing ever, you guys.

 

My jaw about hit the keyboard when I found this STUNNING Beauty and the Beast cake:

[By Happy Fest party planners in Brazil]

Then my jaw fell again when I discovered it's actually a birthday cake... for a four-year-old.

On a personal note, my own wedding cake came from a grocery store, and life is soooo not fair sometimes.

Ahem.

 

Here comes another stunner:

[By party planner Abrilhantando sua Festa in Brazil]

Cinderella definitely inspires the most wedding cakes! I like how they used the clock *and* the carriage, and of course all that lovely gold lace and butterflies.

 

And finally, a more modern style castle that's giving me some sweet Small World vibes in the best possible way:

[By Disney Weddings in Aulani]

Now that is a Happily Ever After.

Happy Sunday, everyone!
