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 For Paris

"Vous aurez beau faire, vous n’anéantirez pas cet éternel reste du cœur de l’homme, l’amour."

Try as you will, you cannot annihilate that eternal relic of the human heart, love.
- Victor Hugo

(By Bistra Dean)

 

"C'est intolérable, c'est impossible, que, de tant de mort, tant de sacrifice et de ruine, tant d'héroïsme une meilleure humanité ne puisse s'élever."

It is not tolerable, it is not possible, that from so much death, so much sacrifice and ruin, so much heroism, a greater and better humanity shall not emerge.
-Charles de Gaulle

(By Krisis' Cakes)

 

"L’amour est l’emblème de l’éternité, il confond toute la notion de temps, efface toute la mémoire d’un commencement, toute la crainte d’une extrémité."

Love is the emblem of eternity; it confounds all notion of time, effaces all memory of a beginning, all fear of an end.
-Madame de Staël

(By For The Love Of Cake)

 

"À vaillant coeur rien d'impossible."

For a valiant heart nothing is impossible.
-Jacques Coeur

(By Anna Elizabeth Cakes)

 

Soyons fermes, purs et fidèles; au bout de nos peines, il y a la plus grande gloire du monde, celle des hommes qui n'ont pas cédé."

Let us be firm, pure and faithful; at the end of our sorrow, there is the greatest glory of the world, that of the men who did not give in.
-Charles de Gaulle

(Baker unknown, featured here)

 

"Impossible n'est pas français."

Impossible isn't French.
-French Proverb

(By Mutlu Gün Kurabiyecisi)

 

"Elle est agitée par les vagues, et ne sombre pas"

She is tossed by the waves, but does not sink.
-the official motto of Paris, France

(By M&T Events)

 

Today, we are all French.
 

Paix á Paris.

Sunday Sweets Gets OVER DRAMATIC

There's a place for casual elegance, but sometimes you want something a little more... elaborate. Something bold, something over-the-top. Something that grabs your eyeballs by the collar and slaps 'em around a bit - in a good way.

You know, like this:

(By Tran Linh)

BOOYAH.

So good.

 

You want sparkles?
We've got sparkles:

(By Artisan Cake Company)

Booyah AGAIN.

 

Think you need a big cake to make a big statement? Think again:

(By Modern Lovers)

This little gem packs a pretty punch!

 

It doesn't get more classic than black, white, and lipstick red:

(By Very Unique Cakes)

 

Or, for that matter, black, white, and gold:

(By MILA)

 

Here's the same color palette with a little more joie de vivre:

(By JT Cakes)

Ahhh, Paris. Where even the streetlights cast little heart shadows. (So cute!)

 

I just realized most of these have been on the dark side so far - but believe me, you don't need any color at all to make jaws drop:

(By Cakes Decor member Beth)

This drama queen is a vision in ruffles!

 

Or how about this snow white wonder:

(By Bobette and Belle)

That hand-piped lace is blowing my mind.

 

Now add a bold pop of red swirly flowers:

(By Made With Love)

 

And don't forget a little a lot of bling!

(By Practical Imperfect Mom)

 

And one final statement piece proves that not all that glitters is gold:

(By Fine Cakes by Zehra)

Sometimes it's silver.

:D

Happy Sunday, everyone!
