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 Hops To It

Happy Easter, cake lovers!

Don't worry if you didn't get a basket this year; I've got you covered:

(By The Clever Little Cupcake Company)

With a bonus little lamb! Squee!

 

We've also got a sweet hand-painted bunny:

(By Ludmilla Schmalz)

 

And something for you coloring book fans:

(By The Hobby Baker as part of the Easter Coloring Book Collaboration)

Seriously, how fun is this?!

 

There are so many gorgeous Easter cookies out there that I had to include at least one - and these are the prettiest little things I've seen in ages:

(By Irena "Gingerbread Heart")

That delicate piping! And the cut-outs!

 

Any carrot cake lovers out there?

(By Cake Heart)

I'm digging the texture (how'd they do that?) and the "paper" carrot fans.

 

For those who need a BIGGER basket:

(Baker Unknown. Anyone recognize it?)

Remember to share. (And dibs on the bow!)

 

Did you know an egg is the perfect shape for a dapper bunny?

(By Always With Cake)

Neither did I! But now I want to snuggle him.

 

This little cutie has the sweetest flower arch:

(By Sweet Art Lab)

Love her ears and that bright green grass.

 

And here's a colorful bunny hutch:

(By Inspired By Cake)

Pastel paneling and an eggs-cellent topper; I like the different sizes.

 

And finally, a festive Easter... rooster?

(By Cleopatra Cakes)

Aww yeeeeah. So gorgeous! And he's got an egg (with blue poppies!), so this totally counts.

 

Happy Easter, everyone! I hope your Sunday is extra Sweet!

Sunday Sweets BRINGS CAKE To The Library!

It's National Library Week this week, so who's ready to sink your teeth into a good book or two?

(By Janette MacPherson Cake Craft)

Or seven or eight?

 

Assuming you can convince anyone these are edible, of course.

(By Mel's Amazing Cakes)

 

Have you seen the new 3D storybook trend? Because it is SO COOL:

(By Laura Jane Cake Design)

Talk about a tall tale!

 

And "wood" you believe this retirement cake?

(By Merritt's Bakery)

Tsk. SO SHELF-ISH.

:D

(I've decided we need more librarian-themed cakes, y'all, because librarians rock and that cake is awesome.)

 

Here's another storybook cake, this time more like a pop-up:

(By Bake-A-Boo)

Loooove those illustrations. Seriously. Unlike the cake, I'm melting.

 

Ooh, here's an idea for my fellow bibliophiles:

(By Cake Studio)

A book-themed wedding cake!

(Even the teacup and candle are edible! YOWZA.)

 

This next one won gold in a Tolkien-themed tribute contest, and it's easy to see why:

(By Cupcakes & Dreams Portugal)

 

What sorcery is this??

Awe. I AM IN AWE.

Do you think instead of cutting the cake they just handed out books for everyone to eat? Because that would make me indescribably happy.

 

Speaking of sorcery and happiness, we can't celebrate books and the magical places that let us read them for free without a little Potter magic, now can we?

(By Cheryl Clement, posted here on Flickr)

Sha-pow.

 

And one more, which isn't technically a book because it's a journal, but I think you'll forgive me:

(by CakesDecor member Francesca Liotta)

Because oooooh. [grabby hands]

Slytherins never follow the rules anyway, right?

 

And finally, let's end with the sweetest lil' library cake you ever will see:

(By New Delhi Cake Company)

D'awwww.

 

Now, who wants to go to the library? Remember to thank a librarian while you're there!

Happy Sunday, everyone! Hope it's Sweet!
