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? ;)

Great Expectations

There are plenty of ways to tell your friends, family, and significant others that you're pregnant.

I wouldn't recommend any of these.

OMG - LOL!

Um...

U R j/k, right?

Yeah, when breaking news this big you should really spell it out:

(You're doing *what* to a baby?)


Especially for your better half:

"Pregant?"

Sounds serious.

And on her birthday, too.


This one gets a little saucy:


Say it with me now:

"It's in there."


(Ah, Retro commercial slogans for the win!)

Still, when someone has been trying for so long to achieve what comes naturally to others, it's only right that we celebrate such a monumental accomplishment:

See, they managed to squeeze the "m" in.

Thanks to Wreckporters Margo K., Roberto S., Margaret J., Cheri P., & Kristen B., who are all expecting.

Hm?

Oh! A large piece of cake, I mean. Yeah, they're expecting cake.

Sorry about that pregnant pause there; I was distracted by my own little bun in the oven.

It's cinnamon. It smells delicious.

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:

(Sub'd by Amanda C. and originally posted here, where you can also see an 8-bit Link.)

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!)
