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 BRINGS CAKE To The Library!

It's National Library Week this week, so who's ready to sink your teeth into a good book or two?

(By Janette MacPherson Cake Craft)

Or seven or eight?

 

Assuming you can convince anyone these are edible, of course.

(By Mel's Amazing Cakes)

 

Have you seen the new 3D storybook trend? Because it is SO COOL:

(By Laura Jane Cake Design)

Talk about a tall tale!

 

And "wood" you believe this retirement cake?

(By Merritt's Bakery)

Tsk. SO SHELF-ISH.

:D

(I've decided we need more librarian-themed cakes, y'all, because librarians rock and that cake is awesome.)

 

Here's another storybook cake, this time more like a pop-up:

(By Bake-A-Boo)

Loooove those illustrations. Seriously. Unlike the cake, I'm melting.

 

Ooh, here's an idea for my fellow bibliophiles:

(By Cake Studio)

A book-themed wedding cake!

(Even the teacup and candle are edible! YOWZA.)

 

This next one won gold in a Tolkien-themed tribute contest, and it's easy to see why:

(By Cupcakes & Dreams Portugal)

 

What sorcery is this??

Awe. I AM IN AWE.

Do you think instead of cutting the cake they just handed out books for everyone to eat? Because that would make me indescribably happy.

 

Speaking of sorcery and happiness, we can't celebrate books and the magical places that let us read them for free without a little Potter magic, now can we?

(By Cheryl Clement, posted here on Flickr)

Sha-pow.

 

And one more, which isn't technically a book because it's a journal, but I think you'll forgive me:

(by CakesDecor member Francesca Liotta)

Because oooooh. [grabby hands]

Slytherins never follow the rules anyway, right?

 

And finally, let's end with the sweetest lil' library cake you ever will see:

(By New Delhi Cake Company)

D'awwww.

 

Now, who wants to go to the library? Remember to thank a librarian while you're there!

Happy Sunday, everyone! Hope it's Sweet!

Sunday Sweets Gets Suspended!

But not like that.

Like this!

(By Ponquecitos and Cakes)

Yes, today is all about cakes enchanted by Molly Weasley, because CLEARLY there is magic at work here. Beautiful, delicious magic.

 

FACT: Everything is more adorable round. Even elephants.

(By Sonhos de Encantar)

They remind me of the Rollin' Safari videos. (Which I just had to go watch again.) Cracks me up every. single. time.

 

And this one looks like a surrealist painting:

(By Divina Tentacion)

 

Now, your moment of Zen:

(By Antonio's Kitchen)

How can something be so peaceful and mind-blowing at the same time?
The rock garden base! The natural textures! Stone, moss, wood - there are even tiny lily pads in the center. WOW.

 

Then there's this:

(By Laura Loukaides)

I've seen a lot of suspended pour cakes, peeps, but this? This is the best one. Look closely; the cream is even splashing UP off the strawberries!

 

A cake doesn't have to float to break my brain, though; sometimes it can just be a perfectly balanced circle:

(By Anna Maria Cake Design)

What do you guys think of that design? Funky cool, right? I love the dots.

 

Right, you know the drill:

(By Homemade Sweetness)

Dewalt, I believe? :D

So a drill is a hard thing to sculpt anyway, but then to levitate it? And use the "sawdust" to spell out "Dad"? GENIUS.

 

I was so distracted by all the cute on this next one it took me a minute to realize how clever the construction is:

(By Sharon Wee, Faye Cahill, Anna Maria, and Margie Carter)

I'm pretty sure that mouse is NOT holding up the cake slice; it's being supported through the cake itself. Which is incredible.

 

And one last gravity-defying show-stopper for your Sunday:

(By Sweet Temptations)

I see ocean waves carrying flowers - how about you? And look at that tiny point supporting the entire structure, which is perfectly straight! Ahhh-mazing.

 

Hope you enjoyed getting suspended with Sweets today! Happy weekend, everyone!
