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: Halloween Cuteness!

Did last week's creepy Sweets leave you in need of a hug?

It's ok. I could use one too. There was an It clown cake for crying out loud! AN IT CLOWN CAKE.

So gather in close friends, and let us heal together.

The line for hugs starts here.

(By Pasticci di Molly)

Now isn't this a happy Halloween cutie?! Look at her ringlets! Who could resist giving this sweet mummy a little squeeze?


Or this one?

(By Little Cherry Cake Company)

Ok, maybe not as girlishly cute, but Murray's still adorable. And such enthusiasm!
C'mere big guy!


Jack-o-Mickey would totally hug you for an uncomfortable amount of time,

(By Kaylynn Cakes)

...if he had arms.


Uh oh, looks like this little one wants in on the hugging action as well.

(By TuffCookie Cakes)

Just look at that dead-eyed, er ... doe-eyed stare.
Hug time!


But before you get caught up in the spirit and go wrapping your arms around just anybody, please be sure that the hug-ee is as willing to embrace as the hugger.

Cuz ... things might get awkward.


Also, go easy on the squeeze-y.

(Submitted by Wendy H. and made by Bluebird Cakes)

We wouldn't want anyone to lose their lunch. Literally.


OK, so spill your guts,

are you not a hugger?

(By Cake Art by Dana)

You're not alone. I have a feeling this guy would prefer not to hug it out either.


In fact, some people will go to any lengths to avoid them.

(Submitted by Kristi and made by Cakes by Jyl)

Hmmm, now witch way did she go?


But even if you prefer creepy-crawly to touchy-feely,

(By Sweet Disposition Cakes)

I bet we can still crack that facade.


I mean, you can't deny that this candy-corn-kitty-cat-cake is uncontrollably cute.

(By The Cake Girls)

It's hypnotizing me with its cuddle-powers!


Heck, I'd even cuddle the crap out of this 'spooky' cake too.
It's dripping with adorableness.

(By Andrea's Sweet Cakes)

"Beware?" "Get Lost?" "No Kids?"
HA! More like, "Beware! You're about to get lost in cuteness! No kidding!"

There now, feel better?

Sunday Sweets: Creepy Treats!

Well hellooooo there, my unsuspecting mortal friends. This week we are vamping up for everyone's favorite holiday, Halloween! So come along with me for a ride through SCARY CAKE TOWN.
(We're, uh, still working on the name.)

Oh, and make yourself comfortable, as we'll be taking the scenic route:

(By MadHouse Bakes)


Let's start off with a little EYE candy, shall we?

(By Rosebud Cakes)

Puns killed me, you know.


All of our residents here are devilishly delicious - IF you're quick enough to get in the first bite:

(By Marina Danovska)


Oh, I'm sorry, do you prefer sheet cakes?

(By letortedecakelo)

Or is calling this a sheet cake too much of a stretch?


If you turn towards the far horizon, you might spot our resident horseman:

(By Mrs. Cake)

Best keep your distance, though; that hollow is a terrible spot to be headed.


This tower, on the other hand, is the height of warm gothic elegance:

(By Amanda MacLeod)


And, look, the family's all here to greet you!

(By Perfect Indulgence Cakes)


Pay no attention to Morris, though; he's just looking for another hand out:

(By CW reader Kathryn S.)


A little birdy told me these skulls are all made from white chocolate:

(By Conjurer's Kitchen)

I do hope all those beaks are securely attached. If not, HEADS WILL ROLL.


Say, would you like to play a little game?


Tag! You're IT!

(By Sliceofheaven1)



Oh, I AM sorry - did my little jest frighten you? Well, not to worry; our little tour is about to come to its permanent conclusion.

But before your departure, may I just say that you remind me of the babe?

The babe with the power.

The power of voodoo!

(By Valerie Bohzkova)



HAHA...ack! *coughcough*

[continued coughing]

Gosh, disembodied creepy laughter really takes it out of you.

Ok. Well.

Get out.
