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: Off-the-Shelf Cuteness

It doesn't seem fair to only feature custom-order cakes on Sunday Sweets, so here are some gorgeous creations available right from the display case:

Stephanie S. found these in Hong Kong (aka the Capital of Cuteness):

Needless to say, I'm in love with these designs. The little dino totally reminds me of the "Rawr" shirt over on Shana Logic:


And here are some Sweets from the States (I think):

Adam R. found these on Manako's Flickr stream. Hey, I guess it IS possible to make Wreck-less doggy cakes!

And you guys are probably going to judge me for this, but I think these things Monique R. found are adorable:

Even if I can't say exactly what they're supposed to be. Um, maybe owls? Wingless, marshmallow-shaped, fuzzy lil' owls?

I'm thinking of starting something new with Sunday Sweets: weekly assignments. I'd give y'all a theme - Broadway, video games, animals, etc. - and then you send in nominations for me to feature. The submissions can be your own work or from your favorite bakery. What do you think - sound like fun? Let me know in the comments, along with any suggestions you have for themes beyond your average wedding/birthday/shower fare. Thanks, guys!

Just Watch Out for the Buttercream Boulder

Here's a fun Raiders of the Lost Ark cake making the internet rounds:


And here's the money shot [smirk]:

Now how cool is that: Lori over at Clever Cake Studio lives up to the name by providing a little marzipan bag for the famous switch! Really, I think more cakes out there should encourage us to recreate famous movie scenes before eating them.

Thanks to Pip and the rest of y'all who shared the link with me.
