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: When Mario Marries

One of the best things about having such a high geek percentile among you readers is that I get to see some awesomely geeky wedding cakes. Just look at what a few of your fellow Wrecktators have sent in:

This is Wreckie Jasmine W's wedding cake., made by Jacque’s Fine European Pastries. Awesome. Plus, check out the teensy-tiny mushrooms, turtle, and goomba at the bottom!

Next we have Wreckie Tess F.'s wedding cake:

I love this style. The cake was made by Mermaid's Bakery, but Tess made the topper herself. Wowza - great job, Tess!

Then there's Ryan I.'s grooms cake, which his wife surprised him with on the big day:

Made by Sweet Nothings (as was the awesome wedding cake in the background).

And lastly, Amy H. surprised her hubby with this for their Las Vegas wedding:

Made by the amazing Gimme Some Sugar in Las Vegas.

Check out the fun details!


(Mario & Princess Peach have their hair colors changed to match the bride & groom's.)

So. Cool.

RSS Feed Update

Sorry to dedicate a whole post to mundane site news, guys, but we've been fiddling with our RSS feed and I know that has a lot of you concerned.

As I noted on yesterday's post, we pulled the full feed in an attempt to thwart evil thieving spam bloggers. However, over the past day or two we've had the benefit of talking to some Very Smart People who've shown us alternate ways to foil scrapers. (See? We even learned what "scrapers" are. Told you they were smart.)

Therefore, and here's the part you want to hear: we are restoring the full feed tomorrow.

Who loves ya? Huh? Huh? That's right: we do.

(Well, except for those sourpusses who started the name-calling and excessive nastiness the second we touched the feed. Can't say we love them. Nope. In fact, those guys - just being honest here - kinda suck. Fortunately, most of you are NOT those guys - so thanks for that.)
