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? ;)

It's A Sweet Day For A Winter Wedding

Hey, if you can't beat the cold, celebrate it!
(Says the girl in Florida. :D)

 

Besides, sparkly ice and swirling snowflakes are PERFECT for a fairy tale wedding:

(By The Caketress)

See?

The frosted branches and glittery "snow" on each tier is so pretty and delicate!

 

This one has the tiniest touches of gold to warm up the gray:

(By Immaculate Confections)

And that shadowbox effect with the trees? GENIUS.

 

Here's another woodsy design:

(By Ambrosia Cake Creations)

I like all the white-on-white texture, and the thistle-like greenery is perfect with the mountainscapes.

 

But if you prefer something with a lot more glitz to it:

(By Delicut Cakes)

Sha-pow! GLITZ.
The flowers were inspired by British bluebells, and I'm so impressed by the filigree trim and tightly packed ruffles!

 

Now for something completely different:

(By Torta Couture)

Chocolate!! Such a dramatic backdrop for those metallic snowflakes. And I think gold, copper, and chocolate is one of my new favorite color combos.

 

More impressive snowflakes, this time cascading down the side of the cake:

(By Taarten Deco)

 

And this icy beauty has the hint of an onion-domed castle on top:

(By Nadia & Co.)

Plus check out the hand painted vignette! Mmmm. So dreamy.

 

More hand painting on one of today's most beautifully minimalistic designs:

(By Sweet Little Treat)

I am all about that blue-gray wood grain. Gah, so gorgeous!

 

You wouldn't usually think of gold and bronze for a winter cake, but wow:

(By Sugar Cane)

I like!

 

And finally, a glittering ice tower fit for Queen Elsa herself:

(By Design Cakes)

OooooOOOooooo. Perfection.

 

Hope you guys enjoyed! Happy Sunday, and stay warm out there!

Sunday Sweets ROCKS

Cake lovers, ARE YOU READY TO ROCK?!

'Cuz today we're getting all the bands back together... in cake form.

And by "all the bands" I mean some of the bands that happen to have amazing tribute cakes.

So hold those lighters high, my friends - in case some of these come with candles.

 

The Rolling Stones:

(By Sugar Rush Cakes)

You CAN get satisfaction, provided the birthday girl shares.

 

Pink Floyd:

(By Yummies)

We don't need no thought control... but we *could* use another slice, thanks.

 

Bjork:

(By Un Jeu d'Enfant)

John tells me I can't include Bjork in this list because she's not classic rock, but I like the cake, John, so there.

 

For the fan who can't choose just ONE group:

(By Gian Paolo Panizzolo)

 

Also not classic rock, but ABBA's still a classic in my book:

(By The Designer Cake Company)

♪ Young and sweet, only buttercream! ♫

(Eh? EH??)
(Of course, this cake is also fondant, so that's really messing with my rhyme.)

 

Bon Jovi:

(By Pink Cake Box)

I'm all about that hair. :D

 

The Beatles:

(By Marzia Caruso Cake Design)

I bet this took more than a hard day's night.

 

Guns N' Roses:

(By Kupkake Tree)

And this one took plenty of patience.

 

AC/DC:

(By Just for the Cake of It)

And this? This took the baker all night long.
:D

 

Kiss:

(By Elisabeth Palatiello)

Sure to make you smile all night and party every day!

 

And last but never least:

David Bowie:

(By Laura Ally)

Sweet Ziggy Stardust, you will be missed.

(Though to me, you'll always be the Goblin King who makes the world fall down.)

 

Happy Sunday, everybody!
