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 and Halloween Treats!

Halloween is next weekend! Quick!


(By Perfect Indulgence Cakes)

Well, that's a wrap.


Or perhaps you prefer a slightly spookier Sweet:

(By Queens of Sweet)

Quoth the raven: "Ok, but just one more slice."


Some witchy silhouettes and a fantastic use of tissue paper "flames":

(By Nikkiberry)


And this chocolate sculpt is fiendishly good:

(By Yener's Way)

See the pirate ship and dock at the base?


I must admit, my favorite witches are the ones playing Leap Frog, not making them:

(By Michela Barocci)

Because look how cute.


Still, I realize some of you like a good scare - so this one's for you:

(By Christine H. McConnell)

And now none of us will ever look at chocolate-covered strawberries the same. [shudder]


This one has a little something for all of you scary movie fans:

(Baker Unknown. Anyone recognize it?)

You guys, that is a wedding cake. And even though I'm a huge wuss when it comes to scary stuff, that bride and groom Alien topper is making my whole afternoon.


There may be other haunted houses, but for us Disney fans, there is only one Haunted Mansion:

(By Walt Disney World resort bakers, featured here)


This is another wedding cake! Check out the bride and groom in the Doom Buggy:

Love the stretching portraits, too.


Behold, Franken-Minion!

(By Baked By Dan)

The combed down hair is the BEST.


And finally, a pony-licious Halloween treat for my fellow Bronies and Pegasisters:

(By Sugar Spooks)

Oh man, crazy-eyed zombie Pinkie-Pie?! Ha! Plus Flutter Bat, Punk Rarity, Franken-AppleJack, Mummy Twilight, and Rainbow Dash's skeleton? THIS IS EPIC.


Here's hoping your Halloween is just as Sweet!

Sundays Sweets: Tim Burton Treats!

Is there any time of the year more suited to Tim Burton cakes?


So here are my new favorites inspired by some of Burton's spookier films.



(By Sarah Olmsted)

We're starting off with a bang and a scream, because LOOK AT THIS CAKE. The sandworms! The waiting room! And the top with the model set's grave scene? Perfection.

It took me a good 15 seconds to find Beetlejuice, btw. See him? NO HINTS!



Corpse Bride:

(By Cake Central user lamiatorte)

1) I can't believe this is cake.
2) Emily looks dead sexy.

See what I did there?



Alice in Wonderland:

(By Silovoguo for the Cake Design Italian Festival)

All the other Alice cakes can just pack up, you guys. WE'RE DONE HERE.

(Sooo many stunning details, but look at the stack of floating teacups! That and the painted roses are my favorite bits. Plus Cheshire's eyes.)



(By Sara Giustizieri)

Excellent hand painting and figure sculpts so spot-on they could be collectible figures.


And everyone's favorite:

The Nightmare Before Christmas:

(By Dina Cimarusti Cakes)


This one has it all: the swirls, the bathtub, Oogie Boogie - I even see Zero!

(By Pucky Cakes)

Love that Sally gets her own cake here - and what IS that adorable bat/cat creature she's holding?
'Cuz I want one.


There are tons of Jack & Sally wedding cakes out there, but these two in particular caught my eye:

(By That Baking Girl)

The chalkboard tier has the famous "meant to be" quote from the movie. I love the swirly roses, and those colors! Plus the window frame topper is a genius design.


(By Splendor Cakes)

I really fell for the contrast on this one: that vivid pink and orange and lace topper with the dark sepia tones on the bottom is just... WORKING. You know? And I love the hand painted art of Jack and Sally in Dia de los Muertos face paint - a fun twist which helps explain the brighter colors.


And now, a few Sweets that bring all kinds of Burton characters together:

(Also by Sara Giustizieri)

Edward! Yay! Plus those vivid jewel tones look amazing behind all the figure sculpts.


And finally:

(By Queen City Bake Shop)

How cool is this?! The TV sets alone would make this a masterpiece, but then there are scenes from Nightmare, Frankenweenie, and Alice inside them!

And, you guys, they even light up:


Ahhh- mazing.


Happy Sunday, everyone! Now, who wants to go watch some movies?
