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: 10 Adorable Baby Shower Cakes

It's been far too long since we oohed and aahed over Sweet baby shower cakes, minions. I blame myself. And sometimes John.

BUT NO MORE.

Because lookie:

(By De La Créme)

What Sweet monkey business is this?! I want to pet that fuzzy little tail, and those colors! Ah!

 

Of course, classic soft pastels are classic:

(By Shereen's Cakes & Bakes)

...and I love the watercolor touches in the clouds and balloons.

 

Did you know a cake can wear suspenders? And that it's just as adorable as it sounds?

(By The Cake Witch)

D'awwwww.

 

And I dare you not to gasp over this Sweet flower field:

(By HapiCakes)

 

Not gonna lie, this next one is my favorite:

(By On the Sweet Side)

Baby crocs? A rubber ducky pattern? All in an oh-so-cheerful yellow with the tiniest touches of pink?

YES PLEASE.

 

Though it's hard to pick favorites when there are baby elephants around like this:

(By Steel Penny Cakes)

 

...or chic chalkboard patterns like this:

(By Sugar Sweet Cakes And Treats)

 

...or ruffly nautical numbers, like this!

(By Butterflour)

 

IMPENDING PUN ALERT:

Here's a buzz-worthy design for the mother-to-BEE:

(By Cakes By Roselyn)

Now, the BEE VERSION OF HAMILTON:
"How lucky we are to be a hive right now!"

(Sorry/not sorry.)

 

And finally, good luck convincing yourself this gorgeous stack of gifts & wee crochet booties are edible:

(By Sweet Lake Cakes)

...because WOW. Am I right? WOW.

Hope you enjoyed Sweets today, guys! Happy Sunday!

Sunday Sweets: Disney Wedding Cakes

When you know you'll never be too old for Disney, but still want to keep it elegant:

(By WDW Resorts)

 

A beautifully subtle design for Lady and the Tramp lovers:

(By WDW Resorts - specifically, The Grand Floridian)

 

Ever wanted Cinderella's feathered friends to lend YOU a hand?

(By WDW Resorts)

All together now: D'awwww.

 

This Beauty and the Beast homage has the famous song lyrics handwritten on top:

(By Gimme Some Sugar)

...but the skirt ruffles at the bottom are my favorite. SO GOOD.

 

Can't decide on a favorite movie? Then why not have all your favorite characters?

(By Story Teller Cakes)

This silhouette style is incredible! I like the unexpected touches of teal.

 

Or maybe you prefer the classic Cinderella's castle:

Can't go wrong with this "something blue."

 

But I think you just might love Cindy's carriage even better:

(By WDW Resorts)

WOWIE. The gilded coach is definitely the icing on top, but check out those curves and ruffles! I could stare at those beautiful textures all day.

 

This next one was inspired by one of my favorite Disney artists, Tim Rogerson:

(By WDW Resorts)

I love the art deco feel. Gorgeous.

 

And this one was inspired by the design of It's A Small World:

(By WDW Resorts)

Ear worms aside, Small World is one of the most beautiful original rides, and this design captures it perfectly.

 

FACT: Just about anything related to the lantern scene in Tangled makes me cry:

(By Sweet Fix)

::Sniffle::

 

And finally, a more light-hearted approach to the classic wedding castle:

(By WDW Resorts)

Now that promises a great big beautiful tomorrow, right there.

 

Happy Sunday, everyone!
