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? ;)

Ode To The Long Weekend

Ooooh, long weekend, baby! So, whaddaya figure:

Grill up some hot dogs?

(By Mariam Michael Cakes) [site appears to be down]

 

Hamburgers?

(By Sen Cakes)

 

Or go straight for the mini pies?

(By Karen Tack & Alan Richardson, tutorial here)

Mini-pie cupcakes, that is. The "cherries" are M&Ms!
So clever, it makes my brain hurt a little.

 

Well, whether you're spending this weekend catching some waves:

Taking a road trip:

Or just finishing your Friends binge on Netflix:

I hope my fellow Americans will keep in mind why we get the long weekend,

(By Cakes4MBL)

...and take a moment to remember our fallen heroes.

 

Happy Memorial Day Weekend, everyone.

Sunday Sweets: (Video) GAME ON!

Anyone else out there love video games??

(By Un Jeu d'Enfant)

'Cuz if so, this post's for you.

 

Mortal Kombat:

(By Maridell's Cakes)

 

Disney Infinity:

(Baker unknown. Anyone recognize it?)

Seriously love this idea: you can set the character cupcakes on the game pads, just like the real system! SO FUN.

 

Skylanders:

(By Bellaria Cakes Design)

I've never played this one before, but these fun character cakes make me want to!

 

Here's another, also from Skylanders:

(By Dina Cimarusti - who was on season 7 of Face Off! SO COOL.)

 

Call of Duty:

(By Not Just Cakes By Annie)

Especially perfect for someone named Paul. Ha!

 

Minecraft:

(By The Violet Cake Shop)

It's a plethora of perfectly placed pixels! Swoon.

 

Mario Kart:

(By Enna's Cake Design)

Because that little Italian plumber never gets old.

 

Secret Agent Clank:

(By Vsem Tort)

I remember playing Ratchet and Clank eons ago - I had no idea Clank got his own title!

 

Legend of Zelda:

(By Studio Sweets, which sells those toppers on Etsy!)

Another classic, and talk about a perfect wedding cake! I love the "floating" sugar gems.

 

And finally, one of John's favorite games of all time:

Skyrim:

(By Baking Obsession)

I got John the Alduin statue this cake is based on last Christmas, so we're both pretty familiar with it - and neither of us could believe this was cake at first and not the real thing. It's that perfect.

Now, who wants to go play a game? :)

 

Happy Sunday, everyone!
