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 GOES SHOPPING!

With everyone in a shopping frenzy this weekend, I figured hey, why not make it a FEEDING frenzy... of shopping! Only, you know, in cake.

(This, uh, sounded better in my head.)


So, let's say you're shopping for a sweet Vera Bradley purse:

BAM! That's totally cake!

So you'll have to keep looking.
But still. Amazing, right?

 

Adults can be hard to buy for, but I love shopping for little kids:

(By Mark Lie)

Yes, cake! I think only the bottom rockers are real wood.

 

(By Splendor Cakes)

Pew pew!

 

And the most perfect iPod delivery system:

(By Sweet Little Treat)

D'AWWWW.

 

Of course, we big kids like our toys, too:

(By Cakes by Angela Morrison)

 

(By For the Love of Cake)

 

It helps if the person you're buying for has a hobby, of course. Like baking. Or storing cooking utensils in fancy jewelry bags:

But it's hard to go wrong with a little bling for the ladies. Or a LOT of bling.

(By Yener's Way)

 

And don't let the fellas fool you; they like their bling, too:

(By Ron-Ben Israel Cakes)

 

Still, we all know the holidays are all about the GADGETS, am I right?

(By Sweet Jeelees)

Although I still refuse to recognize "phablet" as a word. I JUST WON'T DO IT.

 

Well, here's wishing you every shopping triumph this season, my friends. Oh, and remember to get something for everyone in the family, k?

Happy Sunday!

Sunday Sweets: Fall Fling

It's that time of year when trees put on their most colorful finery,

...and then dramatically drop it all off again.

(By Incredible Art)

 

Our lawns become a technicolor playground,

(By Sweet Art Lab)

 

While inside everyone's decorating with rich golds and reds and orange to match:

(By Custom Cakes By Albena)

 

Even though the days aren't TOO cold,

(By Gateau Delice)

...it's still nice to break out the sweaters and thick knit socks.

 

Especially during trips to the pumpkin patch!

(By Il Profumo delle Fragole)

Dingdingding! We have a winner!

 

It's a good idea to buy an extra pumpkin (or six) for carving.

(By Madhouse Bakes)

 

And don't you love how much easier it is to find caramel apples now?

(By Andrea's Sweet Cakes)

That's always a good thing.

 

Scarecrows can finally rest their arms,

(By The Clever Little Cupcake Company)

 

While the rest of us stock up on bear necessities and fight the urge to hibernate.

(By Gloria Cakes)

 

So, before I stock up on chocolate and plan a Fall nap, let me just wish you all:

Happy Fall!
