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: Gamer Goodness

As you Epbot readers know, I've been playing Ghostbusters and generally geeking/freaking out (once again) about all things Ghostbusters-related this week. Which is why when I saw this first cake I knew today's post would have to be game-themed, just so I'd have an excuse to post it.

The genius! The detail! The ghost-bustin' geekiness!

Made by Lyndsay Shrubb of Ontario

Everything you see here is edible except for the tubing and wand handle. Lyndsay made the wires and ribbon from fruit-by-the-foot and licorice.

Granted, this is one cake where you'd have to be sure to peel the fondant off before eating it (hello, stained teeth!), but that's a small price to pay for such sheer unbridled awesomeness.

Don't worry; I have more goodies, too.

Here's a cute Companion Cube from Portal:

Last month I downloaded the free version they made available for the Mac, but I haven't played it yet. Tell me, gamers, is it better on the PS3? Seems like it'd have to be, but I'd love your opinion if you've played it.

Some day I also really want to try Scribblenauts - and not just because this cake is so stinkin' adorable:

Sub'd by Alexandria DB, but I don't have the baker. Anyone know?

Although I admit the cake is helping. ;)

How about a little BioShock?

Ah, Bioshock, home of the oh-so-evil doorways...

This cake is especially inspirational because it's only the 4th fondant cake the baker ever attempted! Yep, futurestar101 is not a pro at all, but look at the amount of detail she achieved in the vending machine. Just amazing.

Here's one for you WOWers:

One of the best World of Warcraft cakes I've seen. I love the 3D lettering.


And finally, something from one of John's favorite games, Halo:

It takes a master chef to make a master chief! ;)

Sunday Sweets: Shoes & Purses

Ok, so a few weeks ago when I said I found purse and shoe cakes a little boring, what I *meant* was I'd only find them boring until enough of you wrote in demanding that I feature purse and shoe cakes. Um. Yeah. That's it. ;)

So, by popular demand, here's the best of the best of the best! Sir!

(And just so we're clear: none of these are boring; they're awesome.)

Enjoy.
