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: 10 Halloween Cuties

Halloween is coming, minions, but not to worry; today we're all about Sweets, not scares.

Let's set the stage with some cheerful Jack-O-Lanterns:

(By Yener's Way)


A baby bat or two:

(By Madhouse Bakes)


...and an oh-so adorable witch:

(By il Mondo di Ielle)


Which reminds me: you're gonna need a fabulous outfit, of course:

(By Cake Heart)


Plus some boo-tiful accessories!

(By Cuteology Cakes)

That bow is a scream.


Watch out for little monsters in need of hugs:

(By McGreevey Cakes)


...and dark fairies with a penchant for pointy things:

(By Pasticci di Molly, based on my friend Jasmine's art!)


Trick-or-treating black cats are fine, though.

(By The Royal Bakery)



If you're lucky enough to be celebrating a half birthday around Halloween, then I have JUST the cake for you:

(By Luna Cakes, no longer in business)

Though for the record, I've never received a half birthday cake before, and now I'm feeling kinda cheated.


Ah well, the rest of us boys and ghouls will just eat some sweets on Halloween night and, you know...
hang out.

(By Pirikos)

It'll be a frightfully good time, I'm sure.

Happy Sunday, everyone!

Sunday Sweets Would Like A Word

It's National Dictionary Day, folks, so what better way to use our words than with beautiful cakes?

After all, cakes can say so much.


They can talk about what's important:

(By Mea Sculpture Cake Design)


Share what's in your heart:

(By Nashville Sweets)


...and do it in any language!

(By Le Dolci)

(My love language is cake. WHAT.)


Maybe it's your favorite saying:

(By Queen City Bakeshop)


Or a snippet of poetry:

(By M Cakes Sweets)


Or a favorite childhood story:

(By Sugar and Spice)


Maybe you know all you really need:

(By Mely's Cake Design)


Or you want to get dramatic with a single letter:

(By Mark Joseph Cakes)


And if you can't choose just one word (or two or ten)?

(By Chatter Cakes)

This works.


In fact, sometimes there's nothing more beautiful than blocks of handwritten text:

(By Lovely Cakes)


Look how romantic with all these great textures:

(By Yuma Couture Cakes)

Feathers and stone. I like it.


But let's end with something seasonally appropriate: an homage to Tim Burton's Nightmare Before Christmas:

(By Cupcakes By Louise)

For it is plain to see,
These cakes are Sweet as they can be!


Happy Sunday, everyone!
