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 Goes Green!

With St. Patrick's coming up this week, I thought we'd celebrate gorgeous shades of green:

Yep, whether you're looking for some Irish wedding inspiration:

Or you're just a sucker for all things emerald:

(By Sweet Tiers)

 

Have I got some treats for you!

(By Rosebud Cakes)

Love the piping on this one - and that subtle color fade!

 

Here's another in all buttercream:

Such a sweet lace pattern!

 

Some oh-so-elegant Celtic knots:

And no green at all, but I had to include this Claddagh design:

(By Sweet Cakes)

So perfect!

 

Now, back to the greens:

(By Charm City Cakes, featured here)

Ahhh, LOVE.

 

(By Cakes2Cupcakes)

This is my favorite shade of green: bright, bold, and happy!

(In fact, I'm wearing my Chuck Taylors in this shade as I type this! :D)

 

I think I may have posted this one before, but if so, it's worth a repeat:

(By Couture Cakes by Rose)

Those ruffles are my heaven. HEAVEN I SAY.

 

And finally, since you know I have to include at least a LITTLE St. Patrick's Day cuteness:

(By KC Cakes)

D'awww.

 

Wait! One more!

(By Miss Couture)

Double d'awwww.

 

Happy Sunday, everyone!

Sunday Sweets: 10 Heavenly Hot Air Balloon Cakes

You've heard of pie in the sky? Well, cake in the sky is even better.

(By Tessa Tina Cakes)

Especially when it's with Hello Kitty in an adorable patchwork balloon! D'aww.

 

Or how about some patchwork clouds?

(By Star Cakes)

So. Much. Cuteness.

 

Now here's a flight of fancy: a steampunky tribute to The Wizard of Oz!

(By April Julian of Celebration Cakes)

Wow, love the handpainted map with the riveted edges.
Oooh, and see that clockwork Tin Man heart? WANT.

 

Hey, you know what goes great with hot air balloons? Bunting.

(By Fatcakes)

Lots and lots of teensy tiny bunting. Mmmm.

 

They're also great with bright, bold colors:

(By Cakes by Bellina)

 

Or dreamy soft pastels:

(By Guilt Desserts)

Ahhhh.

 

Here's a fun 2D-turned-3D design:

(By Jessica Harris Cake Design)

See how the clouds stand out a bit from the cake? Love that. And those stripes! Ah!

 

This one could have been in my Defying Gravity post a few weeks back:

(By Cakes Alouisa)

Talk about a feat of engineering - I like how even the bunting is being swept away!

 

And the award for the sweetest basket goes to...

(By Make Pretty Cakes)

The little sandbags! And the rope heart! YES.

 

And finally, a hand-painted beauty that looks straight out of a fairy tale:

(By Bobette & Belle)

Now that's what I call uplifting.

 

Happy Sunday, everyone!
