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 Welcomes A Slice Of Fall

Last weekend I experienced something wondrous and oh-so-rare for a Floridian: I got a little chilly outside. That's right, my friends, it got down to almost 74 degrees. Granted, it was nearly midnight at the time, but I'LL TAKE IT.

So this is me officially welcoming Fall, the Sweetest way I know how:

And also the sparkliest way I know how:

(By Albena's Custom Cakes)

 

Orange and teal is my favorite color combo, so I'm over the harvest moon for this stained glass beauty:

(By Sweet Art of Mine)

 

And this ruffly ombré reminds me of a crackling fire on a cold Autumn's night:

(By Karina Golovin)

 

Rustic wood planks are the perfect contrast to these gorgeous flowers:

(By Daantjes Taarten)

 

And this soft stenciling reminds me of aged plaster, with the perfect golden tone:

(By Mama Nena's Bakery)

 

The doorway in this stone tower is a brilliant use of trompe l'oeil:

(By Torty Viz)

Like peeking into another world!

 

I've never seen ruffles quite like the ones on this middle tier:

(By Dorty Havelkova)

They're like giant rose petals, but with a crisp modern flair. Love it.

 

More of my favorite colors - and a gorgeous reminder that Fall cakes can have cool colors, too!

(By Odry Cakes)

The teal is the perfect backdrop for all those turning leaves!

 

And finally, a Fall stunner with the most amazing topper and art:

(By Pasticci di Molly)

The umbrella, the falling leaves, those beautiful swirls of red hair... ah! That's it, I'm ready for sweater weather now.

 

Happy Sunday, everyone!

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:

(By Sweet Disposition Cakes)

 

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

(By Bellaria Cakes Design)

 

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

(By Cofetaria Dana)

 

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

(By Maggie Austin Cake)

Digging those papery ruffles on the bottom tiers, too!

 

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

(By Candelle Pasteleria Boutique)

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!
