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? ;)

So you saw what our fabulous tour bakers made for each of our show stops yesterday, but here's what happens when they pull out ALL the stops:

 

Feast Catering (Atlanta, GA)

 

The BPA Club did an awesome job with our cakes, of course, but they actually specialize in pastry and chocolate sculptures like these:

I love this graphic punch:

More exquisite piping - just look at that monogram!

Wild Cakes (Toronto, ON, Canada)

 

And another dash of fun modern styling:

And simply striking stripes!

And last but not least, this brush embroidery and ruffles are the stuff cool-blue dreams are made of:
