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 Celebrates Dia De Los Muertos

Whether you actually celebrate Dia De Los Muertos or just love the bright beauty of this Mexican holiday, today's Sweets are for you!

(By Sweet Pea Tailored Confections)

Sugar skulls are almost synonymous with Day of the Dead, and with colors this cheerful, it's easy to see why!

 

Here's a little sweetie with sugar skull face paint:

(By Mary Way)

The little skulls around her feet are just the cutest things ever.

 

Here's an incredible sculpt of Frida Kahlo celebrating:

(By Zorica's Cake Art for Sugar Skulls Bakers)

 

And a bold minimalistic style with PERFECT piping:

(By Torta Couture Cakes)

 

Here's something different: a hand painted, Day of the Dead mermaid:

(By KO's Cakes)

...AND I LIKE IT.

 

Another incredible - albeit kinda creepy - sculpt:

(By Imaginarium Cakes)

Look at all the detail on the skull and the face mask - and the individual curls of her hair!
Ahhh-mazing.

 

A classic red-and-black beauty:

(By The CakeLdy)

 

And a not-so-classic but oh-so-fun Rockabilly style:

(By Man Bakes Cake)

That hair swoop! Hee!

 

Marigolds are popular during Dia celebrations, and these sugar versions have the most amazing texture:

(By Sugar Song Cakes)

 

And while we're talking texture, check out the incredible 3D "embroidery" on this bottom tier:

(By Dolca Llepolia)

It really looks hand stitched, and those colors practically glow. LOVE.

 

And one last dark beauty:

(By Little Cherry Cake Company)

So many great details! I spy a guitar, candles, marigolds, some tamales - and I *think* the fruit on top is a dragon fruit. Also, today I learned what a dragon fruit looks like. :D

 

Happy Day of the Dead, everyone! Here's to loved ones gone-but-never-forgotten.
