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 Goes Back to the Future!

In honor of Back to the Future's 25th anniversary, and of my getting to see it on the big screen again yesterday (woot woot!), I decided I simply HAD to feature lots and lots of amazing Back to the Future cakes.

Um, I found eight.

But - BUT - they're a really fantastic eight. So let's get to it, shall we?

This diorama of the town square from the movie is actually cake:

And not only that, a wedding cake. Woot!

It even has a mini Delorean:

Made by Caryn's Cakes

Awe. Some. I just wish there were better detail shots!

And now, some delicious Deloreans:

By Cup A Dee Cakes

And my favorite:

Oh, and before I go on, let's take a moment to remember the joy that is the cake in the actual film:

Ah, the Jailbird Joey cake. Love it. I've seen examples of folks re-creating this cake for their BttF viewing parties, too - such a fun idea!

Getting back to the Sweets, how about a few flux capacitors?

It's a shame the writing was smudged, because that's a perfect BttF quote for a 30th birthday. Awesome.

One more:

Found here, but the baker isn't listed. Anyone know?

Now I want to see one that lights up. (Duff? You listening?)

Mad props to this baker for getting the font just right:

Sub'd by Bethany C., made by Heidelberg Cakes

And finally, one of the great masters herself nearly fooled me with this perfect hoverboard:

By Debbie Does Cakes

Debbie, you did it again. Rock on.
(Oh, and if you're wondering where her Delorean is, I featured it back here.)

Oh, and if you missed yesterday's showing, there will be another one Monday night in most AMC theaters. Go here for more info. Then make a like a tree, and get over there! It is your density.

Sunday Sweets: Farmed Out

[singing] Old McDonald had a farm...

Submitted by Alison L., made by Blue Cupcake

E-i-e-i-o!

And on this farm he had some animals:

Submitted Stacey L., made by her friend Beth

This shows that your cake doesn't have to be big, sculpted, or multi-tiered to be awesome. Love it!

E-i-e-i-o!

With a "baa baa" here:

By the always-amazing Bakerella

They're cake balls. Unbelievably cute, fluffy cake balls.


And a "cluck cluck" there:

Sub'd by Nancy D., made by Carolyn Mustopa

It's a wedding cake! How very City Slickers.

Here a "neigh:"

Made by Wrecks reader Joanne P.

There an "apple:"

Made by Heidi Miller

It was inspired by the song "Big Yellow Taxi." Gorgeous!

Everywhere a "barrel of ducks wearing cowboy hats with a bar of soap:"

Sub'd by Brenda, made by Cakes Unleashed

Before you ask, the "water" is pulled sugar covered with piping gel. Genius.


Old McDonald...

Made by Chocolate Pi

Oops... sorry. Sometimes I get my McDonalds mixed up.

Well, finally, here's a bonus Sweet for all you Farmville addicts enthusiasts:

By Flores & Aromas

I'm digging those carrots.

Get it? "Digging?"

Sorry; my sense of humor is firmly rooted in puns

Get it? "Rooted?"
