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: Pixar Pretties!

Love Pixar movies?
Love cake?
Then do *I* have the Sweets for YOU.

 

The Incredibles:

(By Little Cherry Cake Company)

Talk about living up to its name! That glass globe used for Violet's force shield is brilliant.

 

Toy Story:

(By Cake Central member Ann-Jannae)

There are so many great Toy Story cakes out there, but I especially love this design and extra details like the etch-a-sketch.

 

A Bug's Life:

(By A Wish and a Whisk)

Heimlich! And look closely; see Flik hiding down below?

 

I even found a cake for the Pixar short For The Birds!

(By Cakes of Desire)

I love the one sticking his tongue out. :)

 

Finding Nemo:

(Baker unknown, anyone recognize it?)

Proof it doesn't always take a lot of tiers to make a masterpiece. ;) I'm really digging how the baker elevated Nemo & Marlin to add more height.

 

Cars:

(By House of Cakes Dubai)

You see so many cakes of Lightning McQueen & Mater, it's nice to see one of The Sheriff!

 

Ratatouille:

(By Debbie Does Cakes)

Remy! Who knew a cake of a giant rat could be this endearing?

 

Wall-E:

(By Lorinda Seto)

The amount of detail in those tires is blowing my mind. I still have to remind myself these are all cake from time to time.

 

Brave:

(By Torten Design KS)

One of the sweetest hand-sculpted Meridas I've seen, and that dress design on the cake? Awesome sauce.

 

Monsters, Inc.:

(By Sweet Disposition Cakes)

Aw, Boo! And I just want to pet Sulley's shaggy head.

 

Up:

(By la Pequeña Pasteleria De Mama)

ALL THE FEELZ.

Carl & Ellie have got to be the sweetest animated couple ever, so I love seeing them together like this. Just lookit that smile on Carl! And great use of balloons in the back there, too. :)

 

Hope you guys enjoyed! Happy Sunday!

Sunday Sweets: Projections of the Future?

Everyone's going nuts this week - and rightfully so! - over Disney's latest wedding cake technology.
Have you seen? If not, take a look!

(This one has a longer animation.)

SO COOL.

 

Ahh, but Disney is not the first to use 3D projection mapping on a cake! Check out this vid Lisa C. sent in, taken back in January of 2013:

 

And for the gamer geeks among us, how about this retro-licious Donkey Kong wedding cake from last August?

(Cake by Christine of Meals for Reals, projection by Posh DJs)

 

This next one uses plain white boxes as a stand-in for the cake, but Highland Media Work's demo reel of possibilities is STUNNING. I can't pick a favorite; there are too many!

You could just have all these patterns cycling through during the reception!

And hey, if any of these designs ever get wrecked, the bakers can just blame the projector. :D

 

Of course, there's a more old-school way to put moving pictures on your cake: zoetropes! I featured a couple ages ago, but here are a few newer creations to hit the interwebz since then:

(By The Phillip Island Chocolate Factory)

I'll admit it: I really wish that center tier wasn't yellow.

 

One more!

(By Julia M Usher)

LOVE those bouncing flowers!

I know this was pretty different for Sweets, but I hope you guys found them all especially moving. ;)
And rest assured we'll be back to non-projected, stationary decorating next week.

Happy Sunday!
