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? ;)

Superhero Sweets For SDCC

This weekend many of My People, aka geeks, have converged on San Diego Comic-Con - and I'm not there. [sob]

BUT!

The rest of us can still look at awesome comic book cakes and dream, right?

(By Bella Cakes)

Look at this gorgeous Wonder Woman cake! LOOK AT IT.

***

Ok, you can stop now.

Because na na na na na na... BATMAN!

(By Nayrunia)

LOVE this design; so much impact for a (relatively) simple silhouette.

 

But maybe you prefer the Dark Knight a little less... dark?

(By Lindsay Colasurdo)

Pretty piles of punchy pink, Batman!

You know, this color combo is really starting to grow on me.

 

Here's a fun Hulk cake with some priceless reactions:

(By Cheri Ross Sarner for Icing Smiles)

I admire your restraint, Elijah; I'd be gnawing on Hulk's elbow by now.

 

Anyone else excited about the new Supergirl series coming this Fall?

'Cuz you could totally use this cake for Supergirls OR Supermans (er... men):

(By &Sweets)

 

Oh! And did you know Groot has his own comic book now? It looks fantastic, just like this cake:

(By Aroma de Azucar)

And I love that Rocket!

 

If you're after more classic comic books, though, check this out:

(By 21 Cake Lane)

Awwwwesome. The colors, the ascending dot pattern, the perfect overlapping covers - it's ALL good.

 

And another classic: Wonder Woman!

(Baker unknown)

So wonderful.

(See what I did there?)

 

Not exactly a superhero, but you have to see this fun comic book/pop art cake, made entirely with buttercream!

(By fredbutt)

C'mon. How fun is this??

 

Yet another reason why geek weddings rock:

(By Exquisite Wedding Cakes)

Joker & Harley wedding cake.

 

And finally, a dreamy color combo for some of our fav superheroes:

(By Cake Me To Your Party)

...plus maybe a favorite villain? 'Cuz I like to think that's one of Harley Quinn's bombs on top. :)

Happy Sunday, guys! Hope those of you at SDCC are having fun!

No Excuses? Here, Try These

Dear Jen,

Help! It's July and there are no good holidays coming up, plus no birthdays in my family, and I WANT CAKE. Can you help?

- Cakeless in Cincinnati

 

Dear Cakeless,

My dear wrecky minion, you've come to the right place. Fact is, there are lots of excuses for cake, if you only learn to celebrate the little things in life.

A few suggestions:

I POOPED TODAY!

Depending on your fiber intake, I bet some of you could celebrate this EVERY day.

 

My '99 Nokia Still Works!

Leslie claims this was supposed to say "Old friends are the best." But think about it: can you play Candy Crush on your friends while you're pooping? NO YOU CANNOT.

I rest my case.

 

It Was Just a Heat Rash!

Time will tell.

(Actually, Rebecca tells me this was supposed to say "Baby." Is she telling the truth? Mmmm... PERHAPS.)

 

I'm A Pleasant Dining Companion!

Especially while eating cake.

 

That Thing Is Over!

SUCH a relief, am I right?

 

But maybe none of these apply to you, Cakeless.
In that case, here's one for just about everybody:

Not Dead Yet!

In fact, I think we should all congratulate each other for not being dead yet.

So, congratulations, guys.

And sorry, ghosts-with-internet-access.

 

Thanks to Alyssa V., Rebecca W., Leslie M., Emilie F., Scott D., & Kat R. for the perfect excuse.
