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: The Love Connection

With Valentines Day coming up, I thought I'd inspire you guys with some Sweet declarations of love:

(By Cakes by Elisa)

They won't all be puns, I promise. :)

 

This crisp modern design says it all:

(By Eat Cake Be Merry)

LOVE.

 

Or maybe you're feeling more old-school?

(By Manveer Cake Couture)

Be still my heart. Look at that piping!! The cake board alone is a work of art!

 

Oh, and in case you need a reminder:

(By Cake My Day)

All you need is love.
And a fork. NOMZ.

 

This is too cute, guys. Seriously.

(By Planet Cake)

"Tweethearts?" STAHP IT.

(I need this cake to be for a couple who met on Twitter. NEED it. So let's just all believe that's what happened, ok?)

 

OooOOooh, retro tattoo art!

(By Nicole of Tattoo-Cakes)

Those colors! And the aging! Even the cake board looks like a painting. [dreamy sigh]

 

Now for some vintage-style creamy goodness:

(By Miss Lola's Bakehouse)

 

And a classic black, white, and red:

(By Sweet Disposition Cakes)

 

Who'd have thought pink, green, and brown would work?

(By Erica O'Brien Cake Design)

Funky modern cute - I like it!

 

This lock-and-key design is simply breathtaking:

(By With Love and Confection)

Such a great use of textures, too; see the damask stencil in the blue?

 

And finally, a bright-and-cheerful design sure to make you smile:

(By Gorgeous Cakes)

Old-style typography with fun modern colors? YES, PLEASE.

Sunday Sweets: Groundhog Day

It's Groundhog Day!

You know what that means:

If this little fella sees his shadow, we'll have six more weeks of Winter.

(By Highland Bakery)

 

That's right. Six more weeks of swirling flakes,

(By Emma Jayne Cake Design)

 

sparkling icicles,

(By The Chocolate Strawberry)

 

meandering drifts,

(By Planet Cake)

 

and finding new and exciting ways to get to work.

(By Coastal Cake Company)

 

Maybe some penguins can hitch an iceberg north and visit friends...

(By Not Quite Nigella)

 

...while the rest of us keep warm with lots of nice, hot cocoa.

(By The Cake GalleryNY)

 

Still, after the "Polar Vortex -- and no, the cool name does not make up for the COLD temperatures -- I think most of us would be happy if the prognosticating rodent went shadowless this year, ushering in an early spring.

Won't spring be great?

Sure, there'll be April showers,

(By Torte Di Ivana)

 

but that's how we get May flowers!

(By Sweet and Saucy Shop)

 

We'll soak up lots of sunlight,

(By Oh Sugar!)

 

and the woods will be awash with lush new plants,

(By Wild Orchid Baking Company)

 

drowsy fawns,

(By CakeCentral member Omrani Cakes)

 

butterflies and ladybugs.

(By Tea Party Cakes)

 

Ah, bliss...

Tell ya what, Punxsutawney. Why don't you just sleep in this year? We'll let you know what happens.

Sweets dreams.
