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: Favorite Movie Villains!

Sometimes it's good to be bad, and these fabulous villains are here to prove it.

(By Le Torte di Renato)

Such impressive modeling skills - check out the poor unfortunate souls on the lower right!

 

Tempting as it was to do all Disney villains, I had to branch out - if only so I could include this guy:

(By Kristie Kent, but I can't find a website for her. Anyone know?)

Loki!

And let me tell you, this is one of the most ingenious decorating techniques I've ever seen, combining a 2D edible image with 3D modeled sugar paste. It's brilliant, I tell you. BRILLIANT.

 

All these years later, and this guy STILL freaks me out:

But everyone loves a good Sumerian Deity Destructor form!

(Submitted by Natalie C., made by Iced Over)

AKA Staypuft.
(Yes, yes, I know: my geek is showing. ;))

 

I used to think Vader was the ultimate bad guy, but these days a certain bounty hunter is giving him a Kessel run for his money:

(Sub'd by Michelle M., made by Fancy Cakes By Lauren)

"We love you, Boba Fett!"
"I know. But you're no good to me dead."

 

It's not often the bad guy smells like strawberries:

(By Cakes with Character)

 

And the purple minions were pretty much bad guys, right?

(By Tina of 13 Baking)

Or at least grumpy.

Yep, definitely grumpy.

 

Care to roll the dice on an Oogie Boogie cake?

(By The Bean Counter Bakery)

 

Of course, when it comes to comics, only one bad girl reigns supreme:

(By NerdAche Cakes)

Harley Quinn, puddin!

 

I thought about looking for Poison Ivy, too, but then I decided this Audrey II from Little Shop of Horrors was even better:

(By CW reader Katy Salzo, made for her niece)

FEED US, SEYMOUR.

 

And finally, fresh from her new movie, there's the Jolie-ified Maleficent herself:

(By Cécile Beaud)

 

Being bad has never been so beautiful.

 

Happy Sunday, everyone!

Sunday Sweets: Summer Top 10 List

Top Ten Summer Activities:


- Wearing Flip-Flops To Absolutely Everything, Including Weddings:

(By Tressa Westerhold)

Of course, for us Floridians that's more of a year-long activity. ;)

 

- Renting a Convertible and Driving With The Top Down:

(By Just Cool Cakes)

Preferably with something like Magic Carpet Ride blasting on the stereo.

 

- Ice Cream:

(By Twisted Sugar Cakery)

Lots and LOTS of ice cream. And eating it fast before it melts, too.

 

- Wasting away in Margaritaville:

(Sub'd Jennifer W., baker unknown)

Because it's 5 o'clock somewhere!

 

- A Little Light Summer Reading:

(By TIER Luxury Cakes)

 

- Build a Treehouse:

(By Be Magenta)

Or at least THINK about building one.

(Mine would have a clear dome on top for star gazing, and a big hammock bed. Plus lots of twinkle lights. And a mini fridge. Because MINI FRIDGE.)

 

- Summer Blockbusters:

(Sub'd by Olivia D., made by Andrea's Sweet Cakes)

Check your brain at the door, and stock up on popcorn and Junior Mints. Nomz.

 

- Beach Day!

(Baker unknown. Anyone recognize it?)

That's all buttercream - and a rather brilliant use of gumballs on the border, I gotta say!

 

- Followed by Roasting Marshmallows Over a Bonfire:

(By Your Happy Cake)

No wait, that's not enough: we want s'more!

 

Hey, we're about to finish our Summer Top Ten list. What're you gonna do now?!

(By Cuteology Cakes)

We're going to DISNEYLAND!!

Ah, if only, am I right? ;)

 

Happy Sunday, everyone!
