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? ;)

Do These Drumsticks Taste Funny to You?


Steph A., I'm pretty sure that this is the stuff nightmares are made of. Tasty, tasty nightmares.

Sunday Sweets: Steampunk

If you don't know what Steampunk is, I highly recommend you do some web surfing to find out. Just make sure you have several hours to spare; I guarantee you'll find some aspect of this style to fall in love with.

Anyway, this past week the Great White Snark beat me to the clockwork punch by posting a gorgeous Steampunk cake. So in retribution (why yes, I am that petty) I shall now trump his post by featuring several gorgeous steampunk cakes. Hah! Take that, Snarky-boy!

First, a sweetly feminine Steampunk butterfly:

Next, here's one inspired by a Penny Arcade game:

I love the rich simplicity of this one:


Check out the sweet detailing:

It's hard to believe this next one is actually cake:

A consumable copper cake cephalopod. Excellent.

How about some Steampunk wedding cakes?

Check out those gears!


Here's a spectacular groom's cake:
