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 Isn't Ready For Fall, Y'all

I know technically it's already Fall, but I'm not ready for autumn colors yet! So here's one last hurrah of bright flowery goodness before we surrender to our Pumpkin Spice overlords.

(By Mandarin Cakes)

One of the most beautiful wreath cakes I've ever seen - and that's all buttercream! Can you believe it?


These pinks and greens are perfectly Spring-y:

And this mint-and-yellow combo is the cheeriest of them all:

Need to battle the impending Winter blues? Then how about a giant bouquet of pretty-in-pink tulips?

Then again, sometimes the blues aren't so bad.
Especially if they're in the form of hand painted pansies:

Digging those papery ruffles on the bottom tiers, too!


I may not be ready for Fall, but orange is still always my favorite:

And this combination of hand painted stems with 3D flowers is perfect. PERFECT, I say!


Ruffles and orchids and gold, oh my!

(By Precious Taarten)

I just want to hug that bottom tier. Is that wrong?


Oooh, now here's an amazing design:

(By It's A Cake Thing)

I can't decide which I like more: that dramatic flower topper or the fun beaded ombré underneath!
(That billowing on the bottom isn't too shabby, either.)


Another dramatic topper, this time with a tropical hibiscus:

(By Joylicious Cakes)

And that sweet swath of lace! Ah!


You'll be hard pressed to look at this next one and NOT smile:

(By Fantasticakes)

It's those cheerful greens, right? And the bitty little bird?


And finally, a whole wagon load of summery, spring-y cheer:

(By Butterfly Cakes And Bakes)

Just about Sweet enough to last us 'til Spring!


Happy Sunday, everyone!
