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? ;)

Jurassic Sweets

When I was little, I read The Enormous Egg, a book about a chicken that laid a triceratops egg, and all the adventures the dinosaur had with its kid.

(By The Cake Geek)

I've secretly wanted a dinosaur ever since.

 

Mind you, not one of the ferocious ones that will eat your neighbors.

(By Vina of Mionette Cakes)

Although he's actually a real cupcake...
Sort of.

 

Still, it would probably be a good idea to stick with an herbivore.

(By Sweet Love Cake Couture)

Plus, I'd never have to trim the bushes again!

 

Yup, I want a sweet dinosaur.

One who stops to smell the flowers...

(By Experimental Cakes)

...before she eats them.

 

One who likes to gather mushrooms for dinner:

(By Little Cottage Cupcakes)

 

One who waves when I come home:

(By Cakes Decor member Laura e Virna)

 

...and one who likes to play fetch!

(By Sweet As Sugar Cakes)

(Although maybe we should stick with sticks after this. o.0)

 

Hmmm, maybe my dino will be tall enough to help me reach those high places...

(By Sugarland)

(Don't worry. He assures me he's a vegetarian.)

 

I'm sure my dino will have lots of friends.

(By Karen Dodenbier of Dutch Cakes)

 

And we'll go on fun adventures!

(By Zeph's Cakes)

 

I'll just have to keep an eye on Betty while we're out:

(By Michelle Sugar Art)

Sweet kid, but she's a real dodo.
(No, really!)

Yup, I want a sweet dinosaur, but I know I can't really have one.
Except in cake.
And I guess that's Sweet enough. For now. ;)

Sunday Sweets Goes Looking For Pooh

Happy Winnie-the-Pooh day, guys!

Yep, it's author A.A. Milne's birthday, so you know what that calls for:

(By Sugar Creations)

BEAR BUTT.

(He fell in? Aw, Pooh!)

 

And because everything's more fun with friends:

(By Marzia Caruso)

That smile on Piglet is making my whole day.

 

You know the wonderful thing about Tiggers?

(By Handi's Cakes)

Sometimes, they're made of cake!

 

The Disney version of Pooh and the gang is most popular, of course, so it's always fun to find designs based on E. H. Shepard's classic illustrations:

(By Sweet Chile Cakes by Stephanie)

That's all handpainted! Love how the balloon goes from 2D to 3D.

A shot of the other side:

 

Another classic Pooh - gotta love all those little bees!

(By Isabella's Sweet Tooth)

 

And here's an original design of the Hundred Acre Wood gang:

(By TRP Cake Studio)

SO CUTE.

 

Speaking of cute, I'd like this Pooh Bear as a fuzzy little statue for my desk, please:

(By Bake-A-Boo)

Pretty please?

 

And while you're at it, I'll take this Eeyore as a huggable plush:

(By Cake Magic)

D'awww.

 

Tigger has always been John's favorite, and he claims that if he ever gets a tattoo, it'll be of a cutie version of Tigger, like this:

(By Eat Cake Be Merry)

Just so you all know, I'm 100% behind this idea. :)

 

Not only is this next one adorable, with its teensy clothes line and pastel bunting, it also has little Roo!

(By Torte di Ivana)

See him? He's driving the train!

Woo woo! Seriously, this cute is approaching dangerous, slide-off-the-chair-as-a-puddle-of-goo levels.

 

And finally, one more of the silly old bear himself:

(By Estrele Cakes)

The background plaque, the "floating" balloon, the fence posts - I love this design! So fun and clever.

Happy Sunday, everyone, and TTFN!
