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: Your Favorite Phone Games!

Our phones have come a long way, my friends.

Almost as far as today's cake art!

(By Zoe Clark Cakes)

Who wants a slice of rotary-dial deliciousness?


Of course, these days our phones look more like this:

(By Celebrate With Cake)

We've also passed the point of using our phones for actual phone calls, and I for one couldn't be happier. After all, what higher calling [snerk] could there be for a phone than super-addictive PHONE GAMES?


Give a yell if you see your favorite! (I won't hear you, but it should liven up the experience on your end.)

(By Viorica's Cakes)

Ahh, Candy Crush, you sweet, soul-sucking time waster. How I love thee. But I think I may love this cake even more. The little candies! The swirly lollipops!


Oooh, or there's this one:

(By Leesin & Ween of Sugar)

That peppermint swirl trim is killing me with cute.


Here's another angle:

More swirly goodness - and teensy bunting! Ah!


Now for a game as frustrating as Candy Crush is colorful:

(By Small Town Girl Bakery)


Love how the background and cake board really make the whole design. Such a great way to add more "oomph!"

Also, would you believe John is actually really good at this game? I think he does it just to annoy me; I've never gotten past the second pipe. >.<


An oldie but a cutie:

(By Irina Kondratyuk)

Where's My Water!

Those rubber duckies are the stuff that squees are made of.


And another cutie-pie puzzle game:

(By Rosebud Cakes)

Who remembers Cut The Rope?


And one more, because I never knew a sugar box cutter could be this delightful:

(By Le Leccornie di Danita)


Here's another personal favorite:

(By Bohemia Cakes)

Plants vs Zombies! This cake is a perfect recreation of the game board, too. Why, I can almost hear the zombies' heads popping off. (Which is surprisingly adorable, btw.)


PvZ cakes have some of the best figure sculpting around. I want all of these:

(By Eunice Cake Designs)

Especially the Pea Shooters and grumpy Squash!


It turns out there's a Disney Tsum Tsum ios game, too, which is awesome, because now I can post this!

(By Guilt Desserts)

Dibs on the Donald!

(For you non-DizGeeks; Tsum Tsums are little plush dolls that look just like that.)

(And if you're a Donald lover, too, then check out my friend Darla's Donald cupcakes. Sooooo cuuuuute.)


Not technically a cake, but check out this incredible arrangement of oh-so-perfect Tsum Tsum macarons!

(By Le Sucre Du Patisserie)

I know we're always saying how we could never slice into the cakes on Sweets, but seriously. I could never eat these. I think I'd just coat them in epoxy and use them for decorations. Especially Tigger and Piglet.


And finally, the phone game to rule them all:

(By Jane Zubova, who has more geektastic gems featured here)

Angry Birds!

There are hundreds of gorgeous Angry Birds cakes out there, but this one wins the brass ring for sheer scale and creativity. Those pig carts on the back wall are blowing my mind! And look at all the tiny cakes and treats on the castle walls! Ah! SO GOOD.


Happy Sunday, everyone!

Sunday Sweets: Modern, Funky, Cool!

Traditional cakes are awesome, sure, but sometimes you want a crisp, modern twist:

(By Torta Deliziosa) this!

Check out that 3D grid pattern. Stunning!


Another clever design:

(By Sweet Sensations, Inc - now closed permanently - & featured here)

Those paper-like bubbles add just the right amount of interest - no color needed!


But for those who want ALL the colors, I've got something for you, too:

(By Cafe Orbis Cakes)

Graphic, geometric, and totally groovy.
(Look closely; there are patterns embossed in the pixels!)


This pinwheel cascade is the stuff chevron-covered dreams are made of:

(By cakelava)



And here's a new-to-me technique that I just love:

(Bakery unknown; all source links are 404. Anyone recognize it?)

Ruffly swirl goodness!


But perhaps you prefer something a bit more awesomely angular. Even, dare I say, spectacularly spiky?

(By Yellow Cake Company)

It's modern art come to life - and ready to be plated.


Speaking of art, here's one that looks like an edible, 3D oil painting:

(By Lucia Simeone)

Plus: Poppies! My favorite!


These asymmetrical petals remind me of Old Hollywood glamour:

(By Charm City Cakes)

Can't you just see this as a satin dress from the 1920s?
(And notice that oh-so-subtle peach ombre coloring. Beautiful.)


Color, whimsy, and more impressive patterns:

(By Kim Giles, featured here)

Love how most of the color is blowing off the cake - and how it takes an extra moment to see all the white-on-white designs.


And finally, some superb swoopiness with just the right balance of modern and traditional:

(By Torte Di Nadia)

That pink ruffle bit is blowing my mind. Love how it bridges that bold, modern cube pattern with the delicate flowers! SO GOOD.


Hope you guys have a Sweet Sunday!
