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 10 Cutest Cakes Of All Time*

I know what you're thinking: "Why hasn't john (the hubby of Jen) written a Sweets in like, 3 years? I miss his clever use of the word daisy!" The answer is I was asleep.

So. To make up for lost time, I present:

The 10 Cutest Cakes Of All Time*
(*that we could find on the internet)**
(**that we haven't already posted)***
(***as far as I know)

Yeah.

 

#10- Bunny Taking A Shower

(By Sugar High Inc.)

Because seriously, look at that bunny.

Also, from a technical standpoint, look how smooth everything is. That's hard to do. If you don't believe me, look at every wedding missed mark we've ever posted.

 

#9- Quilted Owl

(By Chrisie's Cakes)

I actually teared up a little when I saw this cake.

Also, from a technical standpoint, the quilting and textures are beautiful. Look at the little feet!

 

#8- Puppy Pretty Much Just Waving

(By Cake DIY)

HELLO leetle puppy dawg!

Also, from a technical standpoint, d'awwwwww.

Fun fact! I have misspelled technical three times in a row now.

 

#7- Kitten Possibly Drowning In A Cake

(By Cake Designs By Deborah)

At first glance, this looks pretty tragic. Maybe the kitten's just moments from death. Or maybe I'm reading too much into this. But how do we know?

Also, I have no techinicla* standpoint.
(*I'm embracing my awful spelling.)

 

#6- Panda In Mid-High Five

(By Sweet Little Cakes)

Duuude. I would very much like to snuggle him.

Fun fact: Pandas communicate almost exclusively by high five. -source: Wikipedia

 

#5- Adorable Cactus

(By Hello Naomi)

Why yes, Mr. Cactus. I would love a stabby, stabby hug. And thank you for asking.

 

#4- (Incoherent Squealing)

(By Wonder Cake)

(more incoherent squealing)

 

#3- Resigned To His Fate Owl

(By Zoe's Fancy Cakes)

I love the expression. It's like a grandfather at Epcot getting his picture taken late in the day in front of Spaceship Earth while his grandkids are screaming in the background about how they hate Epcot and they want to see Elsa.

 

#2- Elephant That Kinda Looks Like He's Pooping String

(By Birthday Center Elite. Maybe.)

But C'MON! The string makes a heart! So, like, it's a heart string!

Also, from a terginicle standpoint, do you know how hard it is to get nice sharp edges on a cake like that?! It's impossible. This cake is literally impossible. Just saying.

 

And the best cake this week that made Jen and I laugh so hard we snorted a little:

#1- Startled Sloth

(Baker unknown)

Because he's seen things, man. He's seen things...

 

Thanks for being the best readers ever, you guys. And HAPPY SUNDAY!!!

Sunday Sweets Goes Green For St. Paddy's

Saint Patrick's Day is coming, but it's a rare treat to find a cake as elegant as this Claddagh design for the holiday:

(By Cake Gallery)

Who needs flowers with clovers this sweet?

 

So rather than featuring all Leprechauns and pots of gold, today I'm also mixing in some gorgeous wedding cakes in one of my favorite colors:

(By Sweet Sugar Treats)

GREEN!

 

There's something so cheerful about bright emerald green, am I right?

Just like soft mossy greens make you feel at least 80% less stabby:

(By Tort Ekaterinburg)

Srsly, next time you're stuck in traffic, think about this cake. It'll totally help.

 

Now combine those two greens, and throw in some teensy pink roses...

(By Red Carpet Cake Design)

Aaaahhh.

That piping is blowing my mind. Perfect swags *and* brush embroidery!

 

This oh-so-subtle St. Patrick's design has the most incredible tiered tree on top:

(By Bobbette and Belle)

You've probably spotted the pot of gold, but what about the tiny Leprechaun?
(Took me a minute!)

 

I heard a delicious rumor that this pot of gold is filled with a layer of cheesecake:

(By Topsy Turvy)

[drooling]
[heavy breathing]
[repeated attempts to lick the screen]

WHAT.

 

You know, I'd never have thought this color combo would work, but WOW does it:

(By The Cake Tress)

 

And since orange is my favorite favorite color, of COURSE I'm feeling this next one:

(By Jim Smeal)

Look closely; those lines are all hand-piped!

 

There's a new trend of making cakes as beautiful inside as they are out, and lemme tell ya:

(By Make Fabulous Cakes)

I APPROVE.

 

In fact, since you really can't have a St. Patrick's Day celebration without at least ONE rainbow...

(By Rosie Cake Diva)

...here's a cake with ALL the rainbows. [squee!]

In fact, you can keep your pot o' gold, Mr. Leprechaun; I'll just take this cake.

 

Happy Sunday, everyone!
