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? ;)

Sesame Street Sweets!

Last Monday was Sesame Street Day, so how about a little belated 'Street partying? Besides, the gang's all here!

(By Leah's Cake Creations)

I've often been told I have angry eyebrows, so I think Oscar and I would get along. And if not, I bet the trash talk would be EPIC.

 

(By Cake Central Member AnnieA)

Big Bird! Such a classic. I'm 39 years old, and I still want to give him a big hug.

 

(By Lovely Cakes)

Elmo gets the BEST colors; check out that fade on the bottom tier!

 

And for something to make you go, "Awwww":

(By Bella Cupcakes)

Awwwww.

 

Here's a fabulous Ernie:

(By Marianne Van Beek)

Wait. Is that a blue Big Bird on the right side of the cake?!

[googlegooglegoogle]

Huh. Apparently that's Pino, the Dutch version of Big Bird.
Now you know.
(And knowing is half the battle!)

 

(By Cake Lava)

Jen claims that Cookie Monster eats cookies the way I eat popcorn.
I'm not saying she's right, I'm just saying you should always learn from the master, kids.

 

Now... the cutest thing ever:

(By Particular Cakes)

Look at those feet!

 

And now, the muppet with the best laugh:

(By Cakes Decor member Nori)

Ah! Ah! Ahhh!
Come to think of it, my eyebrows may also be a bit Count-like.

 

And speaking of fuzzy things:

(By Cupcakes Nouveau, now closed.)

These are beyond fabulous. And mini marshmallows for packing peanuts? YES.

 

And last but not least, group shot!

(By The Royal Bakery)

So fun! I especially love the layered "feathers" on Big Bird.

 

Thanks for checking out today's Sweets, everyone, and have a great weekend!

Sunday Sweets: Stained Glass

"Color is to the eye what music is to the ear."

- Louis Comfort Tiffany

What does "stained glass" make you think of? Church windows? Fancy light fixtures?

How about gorgeous cakes?

(By Queen of Hearts Couture Cakes)

Ooh la la! So soft and pretty; I love the watercolor feel to those colors.

 

(By Paige Fong)

This cake practically glows, it's so vivid. And I like how the flowers are mirrored in the artwork.

 

(By Maggie Austin Cake)

I can't imagine the time it took to pipe and paint even one of these layers, much less four.

 

(By Corrie Cakes)

These cookies look like sun catchers! Doesn't the blue background look like a cloudy sky showing through?

 

(By Melissa Alt Cakes)

One of my personal favorites today! There's a great little Tiffany museum here in Florida, and this one reminds me the most of some of his windows there. Something about all those glowing greens and rich orangey-browns... Just lovely.

 

(also by Queen of Hearts Couture Cakes)

Both are amazing, but that blue! WOW.

 

(By Bittersweet Pastry)

Perhaps more of a mosaic than stained glass, but I'm blown away by the 3D flowers! Such a great design.

 

And another tile mosaic:

(By Passionate Cakes)

So much detail! Can you imagine how long it would take to place all those tiny pieces?!

 

These flowers look like they're bursting out of the glass design:

(Also by Maggie Austin Cake)

So. Cool.

 

And finally:

(By Vinism Sugar Art)

I take it back; I think this is my favorite. The balance of dark and light, the perfectly blended colors, that butterfly...! It belongs in the Tiffany Museum! Or my belly. One of the two, anyway. ;)

 

Hope you guys enjoyed! Happy Sunday!
