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? ;)

Superhero Sweets For SDCC

This weekend many of My People, aka geeks, have converged on San Diego Comic-Con - and I'm not there. [sob]


The rest of us can still look at awesome comic book cakes and dream, right?

(By Bella Cakes)

Look at this gorgeous Wonder Woman cake! LOOK AT IT.


Ok, you can stop now.

Because na na na na na na... BATMAN!

(By Nayrunia)

LOVE this design; so much impact for a (relatively) simple silhouette.


But maybe you prefer the Dark Knight a little less... dark?

(By Lindsay Colasurdo)

Pretty piles of punchy pink, Batman!

You know, this color combo is really starting to grow on me.


Here's a fun Hulk cake with some priceless reactions:

(By Cheri Ross Sarner for Icing Smiles)

I admire your restraint, Elijah; I'd be gnawing on Hulk's elbow by now.


Anyone else excited about the new Supergirl series coming this Fall?

'Cuz you could totally use this cake for Supergirls OR Supermans (er... men):

(By &Sweets)


Oh! And did you know Groot has his own comic book now? It looks fantastic, just like this cake:

(By Aroma de Azucar)

And I love that Rocket!


If you're after more classic comic books, though, check this out:

(By 21 Cake Lane)

Awwwwesome. The colors, the ascending dot pattern, the perfect overlapping covers - it's ALL good.


And another classic: Wonder Woman!

(Baker unknown)

So wonderful.

(See what I did there?)


Not exactly a superhero, but you have to see this fun comic book/pop art cake, made entirely with buttercream!

(By fredbutt)

C'mon. How fun is this??


Yet another reason why geek weddings rock:

(By Exquisite Wedding Cakes)

Joker & Harley wedding cake.


And finally, a dreamy color combo for some of our fav superheroes:

(By Cake Me To Your Party) maybe a favorite villain? 'Cuz I like to think that's one of Harley Quinn's bombs on top. :)

Happy Sunday, guys! Hope those of you at SDCC are having fun!

Sunday Sweets: Summer Fun

Summertime is officially here, and what better excuse for an ice cream cake?

(By Patisserie Jaja)


Or a pool party?

(By Short and Sweets)


Better yet, you could throw your own backyard luau:

(By Cake Lava)


Just don't forget the seashell bras and grass skirts:

(By Charlie Cakes)

(SO CUTE. I love the pastels!)


Being a Floridian, though, I'm not so much the outdoorsy type right now; it's too hot!

But I'll gladly SING "Summer" to you, along with Olaf here:

(By Lori's Sweet Cakes)

"Da! Da da da. Da DA da-da da-da..."
And aren't those the sweetest summertime flowers?


I know for most folks summer is all about the beach, though, so here's to the surfers:

(By Mother And Me Creative Cakes)


And to the "laze-on-the-beach-and-watch-the-sunset" ers:

(By cakecentral member rcsen)


And, of course, to the mermaids:

(By How2Cakes)



Better yet, here's to itty-bitty mermaids building sand castles in adorable sand pails:

(By Tania Maroco)



Well, however you spend your summer, may it be as sweet as a Hula dancer on an ice cream cone on a surfing, sunglasses-wearing sun:

(By Fiorella Balzamo)

Because that's pretty darn Sweet.


Happy Sunday, everyone!
