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? ;)

In With The New

It's officially a new year, minions. A fresh start. A time to shake off the doldrums of 2016, and embrace the new adventures that await us in 2017.

Because you... are a unicorn.

A funky, plague-riddled unicorn.

...Or you could be mixed with a cheetah. Who also has plague.


And baby, you... are a firework.

Or maybe a fountain.

Depends how much you've had to drink.


And just like a kite on the wind, you... can SOAR.

...or crash, burn, and poop your pants.


So raise a glass - or half a mermaid


And let those balloons drop!

Or... escape the picnic basket?

I'll admit, the metaphor's getting a little muddied here.


Whatever. My point is, this year, minions, don't hang on to the wreckage of 2016.

Instead, look forward to the wreckage of 2017. You know, like this:

Sunday Sweets Makes Some Realistic Resolutions

Every year I make a bunch of well-meaning resolutions, and every year, by about January 15th, I find myself searching under my bed for stray M&Ms so I can avoid looking at that huge pile of laundry on my treadmill.

This year, I'm going to make resolutions I can keep!

In 2017, I will:

Throw birthday parties for my pets.

(By Sugar High)

...and their friends.
(The bunny just makes the height requirement.)


See the Doctor regularly.

(By The Cookie Cowgirl)



Eat more balanced meals.

(By Laura Loukaides Cakes)

I like this latest version of the food pyramid.


Catch up on important reading.

(By Joanna Rose)

This'll be good for the first week.


Become an artist.

(By Inticing Creations)

Or at least buy a coloring book.


Do some crunches.

(By Inspired Sugar)

You can't do just one!


Stop and smell the flowers.

(By Caking It Up)

Then keep an eye out for fairy doors.


Do something about this hedgehog:

(By Helen Alborn Cakes)

Specifically, look at it and squeal a whole lot.


Spend less time on social media, even if I have to dismantle it one piece at a time.

(By Sweet and Swanky Cakes)

Well, it says to slice it.



Take the time to appreciate something beautiful at least once a week.

(By Maggie Austin Cake)

Like, maybe pretty cakes on Sundays. Yeah, that sounds like a plan...


Happy New Year! I hope your resolutions are attainable and your 2017 is SWEET.
