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 To MARVEL Over

Have you guys seen Deadpool yet? I haven't, though it looks hilarious. Be honest, though; does anyone else find it ironic that "The Merc With A Mouth" wears a costume... with no mouth?

(By Pinar Aran Cake Design)

Poor Deady, can't even eat his own cake.

That's the last Deep Thought for today, though. Because if there's one thing we've learned from superheroes, it's that you should never dwell too long on the logic behind their costumes.

So instead, we'll just dwell on the awesomeness of these Marvel cakes!

(And also the smoothness of my segues. Eh??)


Iron Man:

(By Cakes By Susan)

Oooh, those overlapping "metal" plates are positively... riveting.



Black Widow:

(By Nerdache Cakes)

That moment when a cake has better hair than you.


Here's one you don't see as often:


(By Whipped Up By Mimi)

LOVE this monochromatic look, and it really looks like an art canvas on cake! Gorgeous.



(By Don Buciak)

And speaking of art, that's all buttercream, y'all. No fondant!
I've said it before and I'll say it again: Don Buciak is DA MAN.


Here's one of the best superhero combo cakes I've seen:

(By With Love And Confection)

The feathers on Thor's helmet are soooo good, and check out the "flying" bricks from Hulk's punch!


Agent Carter:

(By The Butter End)

More amazing head gear; it's hard to believe Peggy's iconic red hat here is actually cake!


And one for Peggy's ex -

Captain America:

(By Daatjes Taarten)

I like the old school comic look.


Here's another guy you don't see too often:

Ghost Rider:

(By Sugar Inspired)




(By Traci Martin)

That's one cake that looks like it bites back!


And finally, a Marvel mash-up with a brilliant use of edible photo paper:

(By Saving With Sarah)

I especially like how she used the 3D "exploding" brickwork in the middle to give it more dimension. Super cool!


Happy Sunday, everyone!

Sunday Sweets: Be My Valentine?

Today I got you a very special valentine. Yes, you. No no, not you - YOU. [waggling eyebrows]

Now, it might look like a regular Sunday Sweets post, but it's filled with awesome Valentines cakes. Just the way you like. Yep. (Who loves ya? Huh?)

Check it out. This one says, "I'm wild about you, Valentine!"

By Kakes by Karen

I think it's also saying "Eat me!" - but in a really polite way.


This one is for that adorable nickname I gave you:

By CakeCentral member Miranda1987

"Curly cherry stem."


And I know how much you like Snoop Dog, so...

By Blue Cupcake by Julie

You're welcome.


Remember that time we released a single balloon at the park, and stood together watching it rise and rise as it drifted off into the rich red sea of the sunset?



Well, this is pretty anyway:

By hello naomi

Simple perfection.

Just like you.



If I had the time, ability, or inclination to hand form and dye hundreds of tiny sugar hearts, and then apply them one-by-one to a beautiful cake, it would never look this good:

By Erica O'Brien Cake Design, tutorial for sugar hearts here

But I like to think it'd still make you smile.


Boxes of chocolates are sweet, but you know what's even sweeter?

By Baking Obsession

Boxes of chocolates that let you EAT THE BOX.

And from now on I've giving every box lid a test nibble, just for you.


Speaking of edible, you're not going to believe this, but you can eat this lace:

By For The Love of Cake

Well, and not choke on it, I mean. That is, it's supposed to be eaten. Wowza. Can you imagine if ALL lace was edible?


On second thought, never mind. (Hi, kids!)


Ah, here's just the Sweet we need to rescue my dignity:

By Truly Custom Cakery

That is some serious swag.


Of course, the best Valentines always celebrate what's *inside*:

By Bakingdom

And this makes my technicolor heart oh-so happy.


Speaking of which, you know I have to give you a Valentine that reflects my geeky side, too, right?

By Cakes by Katherine

Just try not to read too much into the red-shirt thing.


Sub'd by Lisa R., made by SugarRushTreats

I call these, "Love Bytes."



And finally, the ultimate expression of love and companionship:

By Cloudy Cakes

And that's no lie.

Have a great Valentines this week, Valentines!
