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? ;)

It's A Sweet Day For A Winter Wedding

Hey, if you can't beat the cold, celebrate it!
(Says the girl in Florida. :D)

 

Besides, sparkly ice and swirling snowflakes are PERFECT for a fairy tale wedding:

(By The Caketress)

See?

The frosted branches and glittery "snow" on each tier is so pretty and delicate!

 

This one has the tiniest touches of gold to warm up the gray:

(By Immaculate Confections)

And that shadowbox effect with the trees? GENIUS.

 

Here's another woodsy design:

(By Ambrosia Cake Creations)

I like all the white-on-white texture, and the thistle-like greenery is perfect with the mountainscapes.

 

But if you prefer something with a lot more glitz to it:

(By Delicut Cakes)

Sha-pow! GLITZ.
The flowers were inspired by British bluebells, and I'm so impressed by the filigree trim and tightly packed ruffles!

 

Now for something completely different:

(By Torta Couture)

Chocolate!! Such a dramatic backdrop for those metallic snowflakes. And I think gold, copper, and chocolate is one of my new favorite color combos.

 

More impressive snowflakes, this time cascading down the side of the cake:

(By Taarten Deco)

 

And this icy beauty has the hint of an onion-domed castle on top:

(By Nadia & Co.)

Plus check out the hand painted vignette! Mmmm. So dreamy.

 

More hand painting on one of today's most beautifully minimalistic designs:

(By Sweet Little Treat)

I am all about that blue-gray wood grain. Gah, so gorgeous!

 

You wouldn't usually think of gold and bronze for a winter cake, but wow:

(By Sugar Cane)

I like!

 

And finally, a glittering ice tower fit for Queen Elsa herself:

(By Design Cakes)

OooooOOOooooo. Perfection.

 

Hope you guys enjoyed! Happy Sunday, and stay warm out there!

A few of my favorite new submissions this week:

 

An oceanography institute held a dessert contest for their employees, but someone apparently decided to cheat a bit, aaaand:

....hilarity ensued.

I like how this person immediately threw the store under the bus. Better for people to know you cheated than think you drew THAT, am I right?

(Though, in the baker's defense, that's a real whale of a penis she drew there.)

 

And speaking of less-than-family-friendly cake decorating, you've got to watch out for some of these bakers and their four-letter-words:

Thank goodness the snowman censor was there to spare the innocent.

 

It's decided, I'm calling them this from now and on:

WHATADEEEEEAL!

 

Here's one to file under "Dear God, What IS That Thing?!"

Look closely, and you can almost hear the shrieking eels.

(That's a rather obscure Princess Bride reference. If you got it, let's be friends.)

 

Btw, ever wonder what some of these cakes are even for?

Well, alrighty, then.

 

Thanks to David E., Anony M., Ruth C., Autumn J., & Rebecca H. for not "Russian" these wrecks.
