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 Dad

One of the job requirements for being a Dad is sharing all the things you love with your kids - no matter how outdated, embarrassing, or painfully uncool.

 

You know, like your favorite TV shows:

(By Mike's Amazing Cakes)

 

Or your favorite Jazz bands:

(By Cakes Du Soleil)

 

Maybe you insisted we learn an instrument:

(By Sugar Rush Cakes)

 

Or how to catch a ball:

(By Chattanooga Cakes)

 

You took us on our first road trips:

(By McGreevy Cakes)

And somehow we managed to get there without turning the car around.

 

Maybe you shared your prized comic book collection:

(By Custom Cakes by Kendra)

 

Or gave us your favorite childhood toy:

(By Avalon Cakes)

 

Maybe you took us to our first football game:

(By Cut The Cake)

... but understood when we were more interested in the marching band.

 

When we were older, maybe you kept singing silly songs like "On Top of Spaghetti," just to see us roll our eyes - before eventually joining in.

On top of spa-GHET-iiii!
All covered with cheese
I lost my poor meeeeatball
When somebody sneezed!

Oh! And remember "Greasy Grimey Gopher Guts?"

[No cake here. You're WELCOME.]

And you know what, dads of the world? That stuff we didn't want to do, that stuff we moaned and groaned and rolled our eyes over? That's the stuff that makes us smile today, remembering how you loved us enough to share it with us.

Well, except maybe those Ella Fitzgerald albums blasting every Saturday morning. Sorry, Dad, but I do have my limits.

Now, LET'S GET GRILLING!

(By It's A Piece Of Cake)

 

Happy Father's Day, everyone!

Sunday Sweets: Studio Ghibli

John and I watched My Neighbor Totoro for the first time last week, and now I'd like to know where this movie has been all our lives. SO GOOD.

So now that I'm newly inspired by all things Miyazaki, I thought I'd round up the best Studio Ghibli cakes I could find. Even if you're like me and haven't seen all of them yet, these gorgeous cakes are still a treat on their own!

My Neighbor Totoro

(By Sugarland)

 

Here's John's new favorite character: Catbus!

(By La Vie Douce Design)

 

Kiki's Delivery Service

(By Heartache Cakes)

 

And here's Kiki's cat, Jiji:
