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: Cutey-Patootey Dragon Babes

I think the designers of today's baby dragon cakes need to get into stuffed-animal design. And then send me free samples. [nodding earnestly]

Amber D. found these two from The Cake Fairy:

Everyone together now: Awwwww.

The wings! The itty-bitty wings! [swoons]


Check out the floppy ears on this guy:

Those scales must have taken forever! They look great, though. Shanna R. found him on Courtney's Cakes Flickr stream.

Here's one from The London Cake Company, found by Brian & Melissa W.:


This was for little Joseph's SECOND birthday?!? Dang, I really missed out during my childhood. (And adulthood, come to think of it...)

And lastly, Kate J. found some of the most adorable figure sculpting I've seen:

I love the simple-yet-ingenious "bushes", and the knight and princess are just spot-on perfect. Great stuff.

Found on Manray3's Flickr stream. I've been told this may be from The Cake Shop in the Covered Market of Oxford, England.

Hey Everybody, Do You Know What Time It Is?


If you guessed "time to learn the difference between an old-style telephone and a clock", then you are absolutely correct!

I would have also accepted "Time to ban CCCs" or "Time to train a wreckerator". Any other suggestions?

Michelle H., call me!
