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: Story Time Sweets

Once Upon a Time...

...in the Kingdom of Zuu,

(By Artisan Cake Company)

lived a helpful young owl his Mom had named Huu.

 

Huu danced with Petunia when she did ballet,

(By Dinky Doodle)

 

and untangled Sloth when bars got in the way.

(By Conjurer's Kitchen)

 

He always had time to tie Sally's red bows,

(By Planet Cake)

 

and if Hedgie asked, Huu would polish his nose.

(By Debbie Does Cakes)

 

When Flamingos ran errands, he'd stay with their chicks,

(By Mike's Amazing Cakes)

 

and he made sure that George ate the greens, not the sticks.

(By Planet Cake)

 

Huu'd help Raffi up when he fell in a heap,

(By Sprinkles Cakes)

 

and he sang lullabies, to help Flo go to sleep.

(By Little Cherry Cake Co. for Cake Bomb)

 

He prattled with penguins,

(By Janet MacPherson Cake Craft)

 

he combed all the llamas,

(By Viva la Cake)

 

he even helped meerkats put on clean pajamas.

(By Dootsy Dora)

And after all that, our Huu still wasn't through.

On Sunday, he shared all of his Sweets with you.

 

Happy Sunday!

Sunday Sweets That Defy Gravity

It's hard enough to make a gorgeous cake, but how about one that seems to float in mid-air?

(By Vicky Angel Cake Design)

What cakey voodoo is this??
Because I LIKE IT.

 

Yep, these frosted feats of engineering never cease to amaze me, so today, it's ALL floating voodoo Sweets, guaranteed to make your jaw drop.

(By Ponquecitos and Cakes)

A little birdy told me this is actually impossible. So 'fess up, bakers: how'd you do that?

 

(By Kaysie Lackey)

I know it's hard to look at anything besides that hilarious face, but check out the feet. There's only one touching the ground!

 

Or how about the ol' "invisible server" party trick?

(By Cake Heart)

If someone didn't startle their guests by letting go of that spatula handle with a flourish of jazz hands, then this cake was wasted. WASTED, I SAY.

 

Some fabulous piratey goodness:

(By Kara's Couture Cakes)

 

And I suppose this one isn't quite as gravity defying, but I'm including it anyway, because c'mon. It's Alice falling down the rabbit hole:

(By Fiona Black. Anyone have a website for her?)

Plus I love the upside-down cake design, the falling book pages, and the teeny room at the bottom!

 

But for a truly mad Wonderland cake, you can't beat this tea time treat:

(By Natalia Da Silva)

WOW.

 

Or how about this Beauty?

(By Truly Custom Cakery, now closed)

ALSO WOW.

 

This Angry Bird isn't even touching the board!

(By Pirikos)

The only support is through the slingshot!

 

This one looks more like an art gallery exhibit than dessert:

(By JT Cakes)

Gorgeous, and another one that had me scratching my head; still not sure how the supports on this work!

 

And finally, the one that made me gasp the loudest with sheer, "No, srsly, how'd they DO that?!" ness:

(By Yener's Way)

Drippy chocolate sauce has never looked more magical.

Hope you guys enjoyed today's floating fancies! Happy Sunday!
