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: More Star Wars!

With the future of Star Wars looking better than it has in, lessee, when did Episode 1 come out, again? [evil grin] Well, anyway, it is definitely time to celebrate!

 

And when it comes to Star Wars, you just can't get any more classic than this kickin' Millenium Falcon cake:

"She may not look like cake, but she's got icing where it counts."

 

Or how about Luke's (edible!) X-wing crash-landed on a cakey Dagobah, complete with dry-ice smoke effects?

(By Luscious Layers Bakery)

WOW.

 

Of course you can't have Dagobah without everyone's favorite pint-sized Jedi Master:

Yoda!

 

I admit it: I'm still a sucker for Ewoks.

(Also by The Butter End Cakery)

Now who's eating who, huh?

 

Although I find most fans these days prefer a certain bounty hunter:

(By Ron Ben-Israel Cakes)

He's no good to me stale.

 

Let's all give a hearty "UTINI!" for this incredible Jawa:

(By Petitfour)

 

And I'm sorry; I couldn't resist:

(By Mike's Amazing Cakes)

Hee!

 

Can't decide on a single bad guy for your cake?
Why not combine three of 'em, like this?

(By Nichi Cakes)

Super cool.

 

On the other hand, does it get any cuter than R2-D2 in a bow tie?

(By Gateaux Inc.)

I think not. 

 

Ahh, but I'm afraid R2 has some SERIOUS new competition in the "adorable droid" category.

That's right, roll on out here, BB8!

(By Cake Rush)

SQUEEE!

Can't wait to see this little guy in action in the new movie.

 

Happy Sunday, everyone!

Sunday Sweets: Pretty As A Princess

Fun Fact: A Disney princess cake doesn't always have to have the princess on it!

You could just use her color scheme and accessories, like Snow White's apples here:

(By Cacau 2 You)

And look how elegant, with that intricate lace work!

 

Of course, it doesn't get more iconic than Cinderella's glass slipper:

(By Charlie's Cake Shop)

Love that detailing!

 

You see a lot of bakers now dressing up a traditional tiered cake in the Princess' dress and crown -
and I approve:

(By The Cake Store)

Aurora's white collar works perfectly here, and check out the subtle "seam lines" on the top tier, which match her dress' bodice!

 

This Ariel cake? SO FUN:

(By Cakes By Joanne)

I'm completely smitten with those soft pastels - and THAT TAIL! Hee! Am I right?

 

Here's a brilliant collection of props for Belle:

(By Tammy's Frosted Memories)

Most Belle cakes only have the rose, so it's cool to see the stained glass and mirror, too!

 

Would you believe I not only found a Mulan cake, I found a GORGEOUS Mulan cake?

(By Pastry Chik)

So perfect! From the hair comb to the pattern on her folded robe!

 

I've always loved Tiana's dress colors, but the extra purple flowers here really make the bright greens sing:

(By Mama Nena's Cakes)

Ah! SO SWEET.

 

Now, get ready to laugh:

(Found here. Anybody know who made it?)

Ha! Grumpy Pascal is my new favorite thing. :D

(Although Rapunzel's braid border & dress lacing are brilliant design touches.)

 

Another great dress design for Merida:

(Baker unknown. Help?)

And the three bear brothers give it that perfect dose of D'awwwww.

 

Last but not least, the most popular princesses right now:

(By Cuteology Cakes)

Elsa & Anna!

(Though technically I guess only Anna is a princess now, with Elsa being queen.)

I am so, so impressed with Elsa's dress texture, and how the crown ties the two together. Beautiful!

 

Hope you enjoyed! Happy Sunday, everyone!
