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 For Kids & Kids At Heart

Confession Time: as much as I love all the Sweets I feature, it's the kids' cakes that thrill me the most.

Just looking at this makes me happy. :)


When I was very young my parents let me buy a Little Twin Stars stationary set from Epcot, and even though I had no idea who they were, I've loved the pastel pair ever since.

And this is the best Little Twin Stars cake I've ever seen:

Kids' cakes, schmids' cakes. I'll take this one for my next birthday, thx.


Or how about this drop dead gorgeous Tangled tower?

Sunday Sweets: Doctor Who Day...ish

Tomorrow is Doctor Who Day so of course we had to post some amazing Doctor Who Sweets today. Sadly, we're at a convention so we ran out of time and couldn't write our usual commentary. Sorry about that. Please enjoy today's cakes and imagine we're saying something witty and/or profound. -john (the hubby of Jen)
