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? ;)

Valentines' Sweets

Whether you're spending today with your main squeeze, hangin' with friends, or believe that Valentine's day is a sham created by card companies to reinforce and exploit gender stereotypes (Hi, Liz Lemon!*), I think you'll agree today's Sweets are all heart.

This is Carrie D.'s wedding cake, made by her friend Sara Trice. And get this: Sara's not a pro. In fact, this was her very first attempt at a full fondant cake. How's that for encouragement?

For you bakers looking for a challenge, check this out:

That's actually baked right into the batter - cool, huh? According to Gesine, "It’s a lot of work. It takes more time then you really want to invest. It’s messy. But it’s beautiful. Just like true love." Check out her tutorial here.

'Course, V-day is also all about the flowers:

Those roses rock.

And cute animals:

(Now, while hyper-realistic animal cakes are a leeetle too creepy for my taste, this one looks enough like a cake to make you feel Ok eating it and enough like a doggie to be stinkin' adorable. So, a win-win.)

Happy Valentine's Day, Wreckies! Go forth and do (or eat) something sweet today.

* Yes, I do realize that Liz Lemon is a fictional character. However, in my Happy Place, she's also my bestie.
