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: Disney Wedding Cakes

When you know you'll never be too old for Disney, but still want to keep it elegant:

(By WDW Resorts)

 

A beautifully subtle design for Lady and the Tramp lovers:

(By WDW Resorts - specifically, The Grand Floridian)

 

Ever wanted Cinderella's feathered friends to lend YOU a hand?

(By WDW Resorts)

All together now: D'awwww.

 

This Beauty and the Beast homage has the famous song lyrics handwritten on top:

(By Gimme Some Sugar)

...but the skirt ruffles at the bottom are my favorite. SO GOOD.

 

Can't decide on a favorite movie? Then why not have all your favorite characters?

(By Story Teller Cakes)

This silhouette style is incredible! I like the unexpected touches of teal.

 

Or maybe you prefer the classic Cinderella's castle:

Can't go wrong with this "something blue."

 

But I think you just might love Cindy's carriage even better:

(By WDW Resorts)

WOWIE. The gilded coach is definitely the icing on top, but check out those curves and ruffles! I could stare at those beautiful textures all day.

 

This next one was inspired by one of my favorite Disney artists, Tim Rogerson:

(By WDW Resorts)

I love the art deco feel. Gorgeous.

 

And this one was inspired by the design of It's A Small World:

(By WDW Resorts)

Ear worms aside, Small World is one of the most beautiful original rides, and this design captures it perfectly.

 

FACT: Just about anything related to the lantern scene in Tangled makes me cry:

(By Sweet Fix)

::Sniffle::

 

And finally, a more light-hearted approach to the classic wedding castle:

(By WDW Resorts)

Now that promises a great big beautiful tomorrow, right there.

 

Happy Sunday, everyone!

Sunday Sweets: Pretty Little Things

They say good things come in small packages, and today we're going to see if that applies to cake.

Because I'll be honest, I have my doubts. (More cake is always better, right?)

(By Eva Salazar)

OoooOOooooh.

Ok, this is some picture perfect draping, right here. And that bow! Ah!

 

(By Cotton & Crumbs)

OH SNAP. A flower topper that's the same size as the cake itself?! I'm officially starting to see the appeal of smaller Sweets.

 

(By Lael Cakes)

Oh, and hey, at this size I don't have to share, right? [grabby hands]

 

I was tempted to base an entire Sweets post around this next one:

(By Freshly Squeez'd - now Letterpress Bakery)

Oh my stars!
Absolutely heavenly.

 

And can we talk about this redonkulously adorable unicorn?

(By Bella Baking)

Now I want to stick cute unicorn heads and pudgy little feet on every one-tier cake I see.

 

Now prepare for a little dose of drama:

(By Red Polka-Dot Designs)

Because sweet scrolly hearts and rippling ruffles, this is STUNNING.

 

Are you onboard with one-tier Sweets yet? 'Cuz if not, this little confetti-and-balloons number should convince you:

(By Blissfully Sweet Cakes)

 

Or this whale of a cake:

(By Whipped Bakeshop)

(The little water spout!!)

 

There's a new small cake trend out there that emphasizes a more abstract design, usually with colorful drips, flowers, and an assortment of pretty bits and bobs scattered around, like this:

(By The Little Cake Box)

...and lemme tell you, I LOVE IT. (Check out the upside down drips!)

 

In fact, here's my favorite good-thing-in-a-small-package this week:

(By Slice Artisan Cakes)

SO PRETTY!

Ok, bakers, you convinced me: sometimes small cakes ARE better.

Hope the rest of you enjoyed! Happy Sunday!
