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 for Wonder Women

Happy Mother's Day, cake fans!

And since we all know Mom is a superhero in disguise, CLEARLY we should celebrate with some Wonder Woman cakes:

After all, bullet-proof tiaras never go out of style, and I bet the Lasso of Truth would come in real handy during long car rides.

(By Sweet-Tooth's Cakes And Cupcakes)

 

With moms being the ultimate multi-taskers, it makes sense she'd juggle three superhero jobs:

(By Smash Cakery)

Leaping tall buildings in a single bound... while balancing the checkbook... plus she brought snacks.

 

Of course, there's always that one mom:

(By Cake Creations Perth)

...who looks way too good in black leather. Mrowr. (So not fair.)

 

Or there's the strong silent type who doesn't take any of your nonsense:

(By Tieni Mistretta)

 

Or the one who's just all-around super:

Right, now back to Wonder Woman.

(By 21 Cake Lane)

Because SO PRETTY.

 

In fact, here comes the most gorgeous doll cake I think I've ever seen:

(By Koalipops)

That skirt! The stars! Truly wonderful.

 

Well, whatever you call her, gang, I think we can all agree: Moms are definitely the bomb.

(By Bettie Rocker Cakes)

So if you can, go hug a mom today - and remind her what a superhero she really is.

 

(P.S. I love you, Mom! Thanks for showing me what courage, humor, and strength truly is.)

Sunday Sweets: Kawaii Cakes

"Kawaii" is the Japanese word for "cute" - used as both an adjective and a noun - but it's much more than that. It's a style, a culture, a land of lollipop dreams and squishy pastel hugs and everything sweet and squee-worthy.

Like this!

(By Cottontail Cake Studio)

Cuteness overload! I love the upside-down ice cream cone (with the penguin playing in the melted cream!), and the raccoon popping out of the cupcake. And don't think I didn't notice the unicorn farting out that rainbow on the right. Ha!

 

Kawaii likes to put cute little faces on inanimate objects, and I think you'll find most everything is improved by this:

(By Sugar Canvas)

 

There's also a huge emphasis on desserts, because sweet-looking sweets are pretty much the epitome of cute.

(By Torta Couture Cakes)

 

Also, macarons. SO MANY MACARONS.

(By Catherine Beddall)

And so not complaining.

 

Then there are Kawaii animals and characters, which can be just about anything:

(By Whipped Bakeshop)

Happy whale, anyone?

 

Pusheen the cat is popular, since she's pretty much Kawaii to begin with:

(By The Cakecuppery)

 

But you can make almost anything or anyone Kawaii, including - hold on to your hot dogs - Slimer from Ghostbusters:

(By Syliva Castaneda)

Adorable little spud, isn't he?

(Leave it to me to work Ghostbusters into a Kawaii post. Where there's a geek, there's a way.)

 

Or how about some prickly little cacti?

(By Sugar High)

Those colors are perfect together - I love the orange!

 

Rilakkuma is a popular teddy bear in Japan, and you'll see him a lot in Kawaii designs. Here he is with an enormous cupcake... of himself:

(By Artisan Cakes by E.T.)

D'awww.

 

And finally, as if cuteness and cake weren't enough, let's bring in one more of my favorite things:
DISNEY.

(By C For Cupcakes)

Ermergersh, I'm melting! Just like the Pooh bear and Aurora ice cream cones. And look at little Mike stacked on Sully! Ah! Squeeing forever.

Hope you guys enjoyed the cute! Happy Sunday!
