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: It's a Jungle Out There!

Hello, and welcome to our Sunday Sweets Photo Safari! Please keep your hands and feet inside the bus and please, no flash photography.

If we're lucky, we'll see at least a few wild animals today...

Look, over there! The King of Beasts, surveying his domain! Go ahead, grab some pictures. Mrs. Stevens, remember to turn off your...

... flash.

By Highland Bakery


Yeah, flash can -- uh -- agitate the animals. Got that now? Cool.

Let's move on, so Leo can calm down a little.


To our left, you'll see a gazelle! Look at him run!

By ANe Cakes

(All handpainted...)


Oh, and also off to the left, you'll see Kilroy.

By Michelle SugarArt

He likes to let us know he was here.

Everybody wave to Kilroy!

(Hi Kilroy!)


Now, everybody look around. Kilroy usually hangs out with... yep! There they are!

By Rosebud Cakes

Giraffes! And yes, he is cute, Mrs. Stevens, but you can't keep him.


By Kandy Cakes

Well, he already has a Mom. (D'awwww.)


You wouldn't want to keep this guy, anyway. He looks pretty fierce!

By Tiger Lily Cakes

No, Mrs. Stevens. He's really not "just a big, ol' kitty cat." Fortunately he's sleepy now, though, so the other animals are out.


See, look, the zebras are making an appearance! By those flowering bushes, there.

By Cake Central member ycKnits

They usually come out this time of day to drink at the watering hole. They'll drink as soon as the hippos leave.

By KD Creations

Ah, there they go now! No, Mrs. Stevens, they don't want a sandwich. Put that away.


Look! Up there in the trees! I thought we might see some monkeys today!

By Cake Girls

Ok, who brought the crate of bananas?
Mrs. Stevens? REALLY?


Well, this is a rare treat! Here comes a rhino!

Submitted by Jenn L., made by Highland Bakery

That horn means business, though, so we're going to give this guy a wide berth.


Well, let's head on back. You've had an exceptional photo safari today! Usually, we see just two or three animals, and they're generally pretty shy. Today...

What? Look behind me? Why?

By Cake Central member Karen Padilla

Alright, now they're just messing with us. Time to leave, folks.


But first, Mrs. Stevens, if you would please open your purse?

By Kingfisher Cakes

A-HA! I knew it!

I think Animal Planet wants a word with you, ma'am.

Sunday Sweets: April (Baby) Showers

Warning: today's post contains violently delightful images. An all-out onslaught of adorableness awaits you. That's right, it's Baby Shower Sweets time! Prepare yourselves! Are you ready?

You'll never be ready.


We've already lined up a pair of twin baby bears in widdle baby diapers to serve on the front-lines of today's cuteness attack.

By Dream Day Cakes

Clearly, there will be no mercy.


No, your eyeballs are about to be showered with more sweetness than they can possibly handle.

Submitted by Nancy P., made by The White Flower Cake Shoppe

Did this cake do you in? Can you withstand all that whimsy? Did you think it looked extra tasty too? I did, and then I learned it was all buttercream - no fondant - and now everything makes sense.


Aha! Don't look now, but here comes one of the horseman of the Cuteocalypse.

By Pretty Cakes

He brings with him polka dots, preciousness, perfectly-piped pennants, and more preciousness.


Sweet Crocs on a cake, take a look at this!

By On the Sweet Side

It's quite literally, the sweetest pair of Crocs, in existence ever, on a cake. Sweet Crocs on a cake indeed. I'm going find an excuse to say that in everyday life.


Do you know what's cuter than a button?

Sub'd by Amanda C., made by Miso Bakes

That you can EAT.


Additionally, what's more fun than a barrel of monkeys?

By Design Cakes

Obviously, a CAKE full of monkeys. Monkeys with swirly little tails and itty bitty belly buttons and look at that one with his tongue hanging out, ohhh my. Deep breaths. Hee, hee, hooooo.

I'm fine. It's not getting to me at all, I swear.


You seem to be holding up well to this baby shower blitz.
It's time I pull out the big guns:

By Sweet Grace Cake Designs

Baby duckies! Bubbles! PUNS! Take a moment if you need it.


But not for too long, because we're back in your face with another pun:

By Cakeage Cake Craft

... and an owl cake so delightful it could make Chuck Norris clap his hands and squeal with glee.


OK, now be careful. We're in dangerous territory here. Let me inform you before you smash your head into your monitor for a closer look that no matter how realistic it seems, this cake truly is cake:

By Kate of Vanilla Lily Cake Design

It looks innocent, but it can kill you with cuteness.
Or at least cause you to leave a greasy smear on your screen.
And no one wants that.


And this next cake is so sweet it could give your eyeballs cavities:

By Sugared Productions

Don't say I didn't warn you.


Well, before you experience a case of post-traumatic cuteness overload, I'll leave you with my favorite cake of today:

By Art Cakes

Congrats for making it to the other side of the cutest baby shower cakes anyone has to offer!
You done good, kid.
