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 That Defy Gravity

It's hard enough to make a gorgeous cake, but how about one that seems to float in mid-air?

(By Vicky Angel Cake Design)

What cakey voodoo is this??
Because I LIKE IT.

 

Yep, these frosted feats of engineering never cease to amaze me, so today, it's ALL floating voodoo Sweets, guaranteed to make your jaw drop.

(By Ponquecitos and Cakes)

A little birdy told me this is actually impossible. So 'fess up, bakers: how'd you do that?

 

(By Kaysie Lackey)

I know it's hard to look at anything besides that hilarious face, but check out the feet. There's only one touching the ground!

 

Or how about the ol' "invisible server" party trick?

(By Cake Heart)

If someone didn't startle their guests by letting go of that spatula handle with a flourish of jazz hands, then this cake was wasted. WASTED, I SAY.

 

Some fabulous piratey goodness:

(By Kara's Couture Cakes)

 

And I suppose this one isn't quite as gravity defying, but I'm including it anyway, because c'mon. It's Alice falling down the rabbit hole:

(By Fiona Black. Anyone have a website for her?)

Plus I love the upside-down cake design, the falling book pages, and the teeny room at the bottom!

 

But for a truly mad Wonderland cake, you can't beat this tea time treat:

(By Natalia Da Silva)

WOW.

 

Or how about this Beauty?

(By Truly Custom Cakery, now closed)

ALSO WOW.

 

This Angry Bird isn't even touching the board!

(By Pirikos)

The only support is through the slingshot!

 

This one looks more like an art gallery exhibit than dessert:

(By JT Cakes)

Gorgeous, and another one that had me scratching my head; still not sure how the supports on this work!

 

And finally, the one that made me gasp the loudest with sheer, "No, srsly, how'd they DO that?!" ness:

(By Yener's Way)

Drippy chocolate sauce has never looked more magical.

Hope you guys enjoyed today's floating fancies! Happy Sunday!

Sunday Sweets Is Ready For LURRRVE

You guys!

Valentine's Day is just 6 days away!

So I think it's time to follow your heart...

(By That Baking Girl)

...right over here to the dessert table.

 

Because that's where all the giant cupcakes are:

(By Andrea's Sweet Cakes)

You know what my favorite thing about cupcakes is?
Not having to share.

Those rules still apply here, right?

 

I guess Valentines' IS all about sharing the love, though, so here:

(By Enna's Cake Design)

LOVE.

 

Or how about this one?

(By Sugar & Spice Gourmandise)

Hand-painted goodness!

 

Yep, I've got a little something for everyone. Whether you love Disney...

(By Sugar Love & Passion)

 

Or steampunk...

(By Sugarplum Cake Shop)

 

Or classic tattoos...

(By Rock Cakes)

 

Or ice cream shoes!

(By Cake Heart)

Believe it or not, that's based on real shoes that actually exist, my friends.

So the next time you're feeling blue, I want you to remember that there are ice cream shoes in the world. Instant mood lifter, lemme tell ya.

 

Another mood lifter? This engagement cake:

(By Sweet Love Cake Couture)

D'awwww.

 

I've been staring at this next one forever, and I honestly can't tell if that's real lace or not:

(By Cakes by Polina Laskova)

I'll be taking opinions/guesses/bets in the comments.

 

Red, black, and gold may be classic, but I'm also digging this soft pink-and-gray number:

(By My Sweetart)

 

And last but never least, check out the insanely awesome textures on this one!

(By Precious Taarten)

SO FUN.

Here's hoping you spend V-day with people you love, guys! Or with extra snuggly pets. Or - in a perfect world - both.

Happy Sunday!
