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? ;)

I hear Paula can lend you one.

 

- Champagne

(By Sweet Grace Cake Designs)

Don't forget the ice!

 

- Party Hats & Noise Makers

Because it's not a party until you both look & sound ridiculous.

 

Or you could opt to look fabulous and go with a steampunk theme:

(By Semi Sweet Designs)

Granted, I'm a little biased. Mmmm, steampunk.

 

- A Clock

(By Mike's Amazing Cakes)

So you won't be late!

 

Or how about this one, which has removable side ornaments for each month of the year:

The guests got to choose their favorite section and take it home as a keepsake. So cool!

 

- More Champagne

Bubbly bubbly. Isn't that a funny word? BUBBLY.

Boom, baby.

 

And if all goes well, at midnight you just might get one of these:

Dibs on the shoulder pads.

 

Eat it up, my friends, 'cuz come the New Year I know a lot of us are switching to salads.

Sunday Sweets: Merry & Bright

We're in the final stretch before Christmas, so here's hoping you can all kick back and relax with loved ones for the next few days.

The letters to Santa have been sent...

(By Cakes Decor member Cake Heaven)

 

The gifts have been wrapped...

(By Sandra Monger Cake Design)

 

The lights are all rigged...

(By Adorn Cake Design)

"Now why are they BLINKING?"

 

And if you're really lucky, you've even got time for a few crafts:

(By The Violet Cake Shop)

Anyone into quilling out there? Especially loving those flowers.

 

Or better yet, maybe you've got time for CAKE.

(By Queen B's Bakery, featured here)

I'd never think to add pink and blue with red and green, but it totally works!

 

Or how about a soft mint with pearl and silver accents?

(By Cakes Decor member Dolca Llepolia)

Love that snow texture on the middle tier.

 

Here's a funky modern design with hand-drawn ornaments:

(By Man Bakes Cake)

Fun!

 

And John thought this binging Santa was hilarious:

(Baker Unknown (anyone?), found here)

I would make a crack about fruitcake here, but I'm told it can actually be super delicious. Bring on the evidence, bakers; I'm willing to be convinced. ;)

 

This one looks like an abstract forest fairy, and I love it:

(By Blissfully Sweet)

Look at that skirt of leaves, and the little braided belt! SO SWEET.

 

A stunning stained glass design:

(By Hazel Wong Cake Design for Christmas in Frostington)

Ahhh, pretty as a greeting card.

 

And finally, for those of you celebrating Hanukkah, the prettiest Sweet I could find this year:

(By Rosebud Cakes)

Those colors! Take note, bakers: THIS is how you airbrush. Love it.

 

Well, whatever you're celebrating this season, here's hoping it's merry and bright - with extra sprinkles on top. ;)
