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 With Character

It's been a little while since we looked at some of my favorite character cakes, right?

GOOD.

Because lookie:

(By Cake Up)

How gorgeous is this Maleficent cake? Those wings!! And don't miss the tiny little spotted mushrooms, because I love them.

 

Another one of my favorite characters with huge black wings:

(By this Redditor's girlfriend, who isn't named)

Castiel from Supernatural!

And I may have squealed like the fangirl I am when I found this cake. (I learned that from the pizza man.)

 

Classic Winnie-the-Pooh never goes out of style:

Those soft watercolors are perfect, and I like how Pooh & Piglet look like a 3D paper cutting!

 

There've been quite a few new kids' movie out this year, like Secret Life of Pets:

(By Sweet Prelude)

 

Finding Dory:

Can you find Dory? :) Also: WOWIE ZOWIE.

 

And apparently we got an Angry Birds movie?

(By Adore Cake Decor)

Granted, there are no birds on this one, but c'mon. That pig is the bee's knees.

 

Ah, and another Kung Fu Panda!

(By Oana Maria Ilie)

D'awwwww.

 

There's a new Pete's Dragon reboot coming out soon, but I'm feeling all persnickety about it, because Elliott is not furry. Elliott looks like this:

::squee!::

Ahem. As I was saying: THIS IS ELLIOTT.
And I loved this scene where they play tic-tac-toe on his belly. So cute!

 

I'm used to Alice in Wonderland cakes being bright, bold colors, so this pastel White Rabbit is like a cotton candy dream:

Look at all that detail! And the playing cards half-submerged in the cake board!

 

And finally, one more of my favorites who, again, has the loveliest black wings:

TOOTHLESS POTTER!

Or is it Harry Toothless?

Whichever, this Toothless/Harry Potter mashup is the cutest thing I've seen all week, and I reeeeeally want that topper for my desk now. It's so perfect! And little Hedwig! AH! ::faints from teh cute::

 

Hope you guys enjoyed! Happy Sunday!

Sunday Sweets For Summer Weddings

I suppose technically summer is almost over, minions, but ermergersh, it sure doesn't feel it.

So let's look at some cool summer wedding cakes, and imagine all of these with a heaping scoop of ice cream on the side. :D

 

Starting with the classiest dragonflies this side of the 1920s:

(By Mira Que Tarta)

I want to wear this whole cake in my hair. Yes, it would be awkward. BUT WORTH IT.

 

(By Erin Bakes)

Daisies! John's gonna be so happy.

 

Love this sweet chalkboard style:

(By My Sweet Art)

 

And this gold leaf and pale peach reminds me of a warm summer sunset:

(By Sweet Bakes)

 

I feel like summer needs some bold, vivid colors, though. You know, the kind that smack you in the eyeballs with pure awesome? Like this:

(By Julia Marie Cakes)

 

Though I suppose the happiest summer shade has got to be yellow. Am I right?

(By Rose Gateaux)

And how perfect are those gray succulents with it? Mmmm.

 

I will forever drool over Emerald City green:

(By Bellaria Cakes Design)

::Drooooool::

 

And then my favorite color in the world comes along:

(By Eva Salazar)

ORANGEY GOODNESS!

And I don't know how they did that shimmery texture in the middle, but YES.

 

Now some pinks and oranges and greens?

(By Cakelava)

And all that textured white? Ahhhh. Yep. I'll take that, too, please.

 

Any Monet fans out there?

(By Sweet Disposition Cakes)

I like how velvety those lily pads looks. I want to pet them.

 

And last but never least, my favorite today goes... to the flamingos:

(By Good Gosh Ganache, featured here)

SQUEE! Hand-painted perfection. This has undone the damage of a hundred tacky lawn flamingos, all in one fell swoop.

 

Happy Sunday, everyone! Stay cool out there!
