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? ;)

Sunday Sweets: More Mario Mania

Ah, classic video games and cake: it just doesn't get much better.

Now, Yoshi is hard to resist anyway, but mold him in chocolate...

Yeah, I'd say "YEAH!" is about right. ;)

(Sub'd by Josh G, & made by his lovely girlfriend Lindsay H.)

Also ranking insanely high on the "irresistible" scale is this grumpy goomba:

(Sub'd by Jake & originally posted here, but the baker isn't listed.)

As a bonus bit of geek cred, I hear those music notes are the Mario 1-1 theme song.
My mind, it is boggled.

This next one is actually made with brownies, but I couldn't resist including some old-school 8-bit action:

This delicious diorama comes all the way from Scotland:

Made by Fay of Fay's Cakes for her son.
(Hey, Fay, you looking to adopt any thirty-something geek gamers? Just curious.)

And because I'm in love with that little bomb:

Ok, seriously: I want this entire cake in a plush, so I can love it and squeeze it and call it "da bomb." Do you think that can be arranged, LisaFemmeFondant? :)

And finally, a Mario face-off:

(Made & submitted by Wrecks fan Eleanor H.)

So perfect, it's hard to believe it's cake! Gorgeous.

Lots of fun coming up next weekend: John and I will be attending Star Wars Celebration V here in Orlando, so naturally next Sunday will be all Star Wars Sweets! If you have one to nominate, send it to Sunday Sweets [at] Cake Wrecks [dot] com. (And if you're going to be at Star Wars Celebration, be sure to say 'hi' if you see us!)


Wreck's This? The Musical

If you enjoyed Wednesday's "What's This?" post, then have I got a treat for you!

Prepare to have your mind blown.

Then push 'play.'

This work of genius is by Joel Bradshaw, a talented Wreckie with mad video editing skilz and even madder taste in blogs. Thanks for making my week, Joel! When our bid for Wrecky World Dominion is complete, you'll be first on the list for promotion to head henchperson. ;)
