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? ;)

Seussical Sunday Sweets

In honor of Dr. Seuss' birthday last week, let's take a look at some Sweets that would make the good doctor proud.


Submitted by Katelyn P. and made by Violet Sweet Shoppe


Like we could start with anything but green eggs and ham. ;)



These are a few of my favorite Things:

And check out the detail on these cupcakes:

It only seems natural that a Seuss cake should defy the laws of gravity:


Sub'd by Wendy O., made by Kate of And Everything Sweet (hit the link for more pics)



By Karen's Specialty Cakes and Confections


And the famous Cat in the Hat's striped hat is almost synonymous with Dr. Seuss:

By Dessert Works

Look at that razor-sharp edge! That is some awesome icing work.



Here's the sweetest Seuss birthday cake I've ever seen:


By Christina of Creative Cake Designs


Look at that green balloon! And the hand-cut lettering! [swoon]

Here's another inspired by the same book:


Sub'd by Ashley C., made by Glenda's Good Witch Goodies


These colors are just gorgeous. I'm also stumped as to how the baker made the stripes. They don't look painted on, and I see no seams, so...? (Glenda, can you weigh in?)

Seuss is often credited with the whimsical and topsy-turvy style for cakes, and you can definitely see his influence on this wedding cake:

Of course, I think nothing would delight Dr. Seuss more than a wedding cake that hangs upside down from the ceiling:


By Chrissie B. of Too Nice To Slice



WOW. Just when you thought you'd seen it all...

Oscar's Sunday Sweets

In honor of the Oscars tonight, I've put together a collection of Sweets representing each of the top nominees for Best Picture.

[Opening envelope] And the nominees are...

The Fighter

By Palermo's Bakery

As Mal Reynolds would say: shiny.

Black Swan

Just imagine a much darker, hallucinating cake counterpart lurking right outside of frame.

Toy Story 3

By Iced Over

Lots more detail and in-process shots here!

True Grit

By mrm71

Not the best photo, but check out the amazing details in the brick, nails, and rope:

The Social Network

Found via @zfarmville, baker unknown

Oh, like you use Facebook for anything else anyway.

127 Hours

Granted, I went a little abstract on this one. If you want a better fit (and have a reeeeally strong stomach), then you could always go with this cake instead. But don't say I didn't warn you. ;)

The Kids Are All Right

Do Mr. Bump and Miss Giggles fit this title perfectly, or what? So cute!

The King's Speech

With cakes this gorgeous, it certainly is.


Made by Cory of Rosebud Cakes

Because Inception and Salvador Dali are a match made in heaven.
Or maybe just crazy dreams.

Happy Oscar-watching, everyone!
