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: Tolkien Treats!

In honor of J.R.R. Tolkien's birthday last week, how about some Middle Earth-themed Sweets to celebrate?

(By Mike's Amazing Cakes)

The White City in white chocolate? I APPROVE.

And look, you can even see a tiny White Tree of Gondor in the upper court!

 

So is it too much to hope the Dark Tower is dark chocolate?

(By Market Salamander)

I see you... IN MAH BELLY. Nomz.

 

Or, if you prefer something a little more understated, how about these perfect Elvish leaves with the One Ring's script?

(By Cake Central user Jasley)

 

Or just the One Ring itself?

(By The Cake Whisperer)

I like how the cake board looks like molten gold - and I'm super impressed they managed to emboss the script on the inside edge!

 

Hmm, but I think we need some cute in here, don't you agree?

(By Love is Cake)

BAM. So cute.

 

And while we're at it, behold!

(By Imaginarium Cakes)

Epic facial hair has never been this adorable.

 

This one was inspired by Rivendell:

Wouldn't it be perfect for a wedding? With the rings on that pedestal?

 

I love the way Sting "glows" on this one:

(By Coco's)

 

And one more Hobbit hole, because I can't get enough of that round green door:

(By Mother And Me Creative Cakes)

Also diggin' the stone steps and woven fences.

 

This wedding cake brings together Rohan and Gondor with emblems from each land, plus an Eowyn & Faramir topper:

(By One Sweet Slice)

Can't decide if the finish looks more like bronze or leather, but either way, I like.

 

And finally, the most jaw-dropping Smaug cake I've ever seen:

(By I love Cakes By Sheila for Cakes From Middle Earth)

His wings are made of rice paper, the body is sculpted of both fondant and modeling chocolate, and the flames are pulled sugar with LEDs inside. WOW.

Here's a close up:

No other words. Just WOW.

 

Happy Sunday, everyone!

Sunday Sweets: New Year's Delusions

As we recover from our holiday revelry and look forward to 2018, it's time for that most dreaded of traditions: making our new year's resolutions.

Of course we all know what the first one will be, so let's get that out of the way first:

(Submitted by Rachel K-L and found here.)

We will eat nothing but healthy fruits and vegetables for, like, at least a month.

 

But of course eating better isn't enough! We also have to run!

(By Sugar Sweet Cakes and Treats)

And apparently not just during commercial breaks. Bah.

 

Maybe Yoga would be easier:

(By Bratty Cakes)

This reminds me of one of my favorite cat pictures. No, no, I won't spoil it; just go see.

 

Oh, and this year we will get organized. We will sort and purge and scrub until our homes and garages are begging for mercy:

(By Jocelyn Burtis of Sugarbelle Cakes )

 

And we are going to save SO MUCH money:

(By Cakes by Sandy)

 

So we can finally take that trip!

(By Polkadots Cupcake Factory)

 

And then we're going to start that garden out back:

(By Cakewalk Catering)

 

And we're going to learn to knit. Or crochet.
Right after we learn the difference between knitting and crocheting.

(By The Walkden Cake Company)

 

And you know that button on the camera? The one on the side? Well, this year, we're going to learn what that does.

(By Studio Cake)

 

And we're going to read more:

(Submitted by Quay W. and made by The Cake Whisperer)


And finally finish that novel:

(By Little "Miss" OC's Kitchen)

 

And watch less TV!

(By Calamity Cakes)

[head tilt]

No, you're right; that's just crazy talk.

Besides, we have to save SOMETHING for next year, right?

;)
