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? ;)

Underwhelmingly Bad Wedding Cakes

You ever see a cake and have one of those reactions like: "Ooooh, that's not good. I mean, it could be worse, I guess, but still, really not good. What was it for? ... A wedding?! OH THAT POOR BRIDE."

That's today's cakes.

 

They're all a bit sad...

 

A bit lumpy-bumpy...

 

A bit, "Oh. OH. Um, how... nice?"

 

When your wedding's "cupcake tower" looks like something you made during the slumber party for your 14th birthday:

 

Or when there's more wire in your wedding cake than the average 14-year-old's braces:

o.0

 

You know how in movies when the bad guy lets loose with a machine gun on a wall somewhere, leaving lines of bullet holes that the light shines through?

Imagine the gun shoots roses:

BAM.

(Yes, I know otherwise it's fine. JUST LET ME HAVE THIS.)

 

And finally, whatever you do, don't think about stretched skin.

Or parsley.

STOP IT.

Sunday Sweets for Wonder Women

Happy Mother's Day, cake fans!

And since we all know Mom is a superhero in disguise, CLEARLY we should celebrate with some Wonder Woman cakes:

After all, bullet-proof tiaras never go out of style, and I bet the Lasso of Truth would come in real handy during long car rides.

(By Sweet-Tooth's Cakes And Cupcakes)

 

With moms being the ultimate multi-taskers, it makes sense she'd juggle three superhero jobs:

Leaping tall buildings in a single bound... while balancing the checkbook... plus she brought snacks.

 

Of course, there's always that one mom:

...who looks way too good in black leather. Mrowr. (So not fair.)

 

Or there's the strong silent type who doesn't take any of your nonsense:

Or the one who's just all-around super:

Right, now back to Wonder Woman.

(By 21 Cake Lane)

Because SO PRETTY.

 

In fact, here comes the most gorgeous doll cake I think I've ever seen:

(By Koalipops)

That skirt! The stars! Truly wonderful.

 

Well, whatever you call her, gang, I think we can all agree: Moms are definitely the bomb.

(By Bettie Rocker Cakes)

So if you can, go hug a mom today - and remind her what a superhero she really is.

 

(P.S. I love you, Mom! Thanks for showing me what courage, humor, and strength truly is.)
