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? ;)

Cloverfield Scares

Tomorrow's the day, everyone!

Yep, the day when bakers try - and mostly fail - to remember what a shamrock looks like.

Here, guys, I'll give you a hint:

NOT THIS.

 

OR THIS.

 

They're also not lumpy Xs:

 

Broccoli stalks:

 

Wonky crosses:

 

Or cacti!

Got all that?

 

Ok... GO.

See, now you're just screwing with me.

 

Tell you what, bakers, just go back to making leprechauns.

 

I mean pots of gold.

 

I mean rainbows.

OH NEVER MIND.

 

Thanks to Sheree K., Jerod J., Marisa F., Vanessa L., Paula P., Adrienne L., Julie S., Liz, Michael L., & Cara D. for proving there IS such a thing as too much green beer.

Sunday Sweets Goes Green!

With St. Patrick's coming up this week, I thought we'd celebrate gorgeous shades of green:

Yep, whether you're looking for some Irish wedding inspiration:

Or you're just a sucker for all things emerald:

(By Sweet Tiers)

 

Have I got some treats for you!

(By Rosebud Cakes)

Love the piping on this one - and that subtle color fade!

 

Here's another in all buttercream:

Such a sweet lace pattern!

 

Some oh-so-elegant Celtic knots:

(By Crumb De La Crumb, featured here)

 

And no green at all, but I had to include this Claddagh design:

(By Sweet Cakes)

So perfect!

 

Now, back to the greens:

(By Charm City Cakes, featured here)

Ahhh, LOVE.

 

(By Cakes2Cupcakes)

This is my favorite shade of green: bright, bold, and happy!

(In fact, I'm wearing my Chuck Taylors in this shade as I type this! :D)

 

I think I may have posted this one before, but if so, it's worth a repeat:

(By Couture Cakes by Rose)

Those ruffles are my heaven. HEAVEN I SAY.

 

And finally, since you know I have to include at least a LITTLE St. Patrick's Day cuteness:

(By KC Cakes)

D'awww.

 

Wait! One more!

(By Miss Couture)

Double d'awwww.

 

Happy Sunday, everyone!
