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? ;)

Wreckies of the Month: The Cake-Free Edition!

Most of the time our Wreckies of the Month submit pictures of cakes, but not today's readers! Nope, they got a *lot* more creative.

First up, Carmen L. was actually inspired by a Sweet, not a wreck. This one:

(Made by Yukiko, aka Rosey Sugar)

So inspired, in fact, that Carmen incorporated that scrollwork pattern into one of the prettiest tattoos I've seen:

Isn't it gorgeous?

Here's a close-up:

See the tulip-shape with the curls inside? That's the design from the cake!

Next, prepare for an assault of astounding adorable-tude!!


It's a double cute attack!

Now, the one on the left is a cake I featured in this post of Super Mario Sweets. The one on the right is a handmade plush by the ├╝ber talented Emma R. of Felt Original Toys. She spent six months making it, y'all. SIX MONTHS. And all because I asked someone to make me a plush of that cake. Not that I get it, of course - Emma's not *that* crazy - but the pictures are more than enough to make me grin like a loon.

Here's a close-up, so you can see all the painstakingly precise hand-stitching:


And lookit little Mario!

SO. CUTE.

Ok, my final reader spotlight today is the extreme opposite of "cute," so if you're enjoying basking in the glow of pastel stars and squishy, huggable cakes, you might want to skip it. Or take a moment to brace yourself before scrolling down. [evil grin]

Ready?

Ok, here goes.

Soo...remember that horrific meatloaf baby cake thing I posted way back when? Yes? Seared into your memory for all time? Haha! Yeah, I thought so.

Well, a lot of you sick, sick people had one thought and one thought only: What did it look like after it was cooked?

And, "lucky" for you, loyal minion Jessica K. is here to help.

Before:

[shudder]

Aaaannnnd....

After:

Any questions?

(Besides "do you have ketchup?" I mean.)
