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 For Mom

Happy Mother's Day, Moms and other persons of non-maternal persuasion!

Here's a little cuteness for ya:

John found this adorableness on the Love-A-Cupcake blog. He also wants to know if this counts as calling your Mom a cow. (I told him it doesn't.)

Of course Mother's Day is really all about the flowers, though:

It's amazing how realistic gumpaste flowers can be - that lily is truly a work of art. I don't know who made this simple beauty, though, so let me know if you do.

Here are some sweet flower pot cakes by Sugar Buzz Girl:


And a whole range of flowers from Tortebella.com:

That overlapping texture is pretty nifty, too.

And lastly, I'm really digging this cake from Freed's Bakery:

Get it? "Digging?"

Hey, these aren't your garden-variety puns, folks. Leave them to me, so I can weed out the pansies. I would say I'm a loose pistol with a rosy disposition, but frankly that blooming lie lacks stamina.


(Whoever caught "lie lacks" scores bonus points.)

Moms, this one's for you:

There are no words, Jesse Y. Not after that.
