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 For Disneyland's Birthday

Disneyland turns 61 today! Let's celebrate!

(By Cuteology Cakes)

And while we're at it, who can name some of the original opening day attractions back in 1955?

That topper has a nod to one already: Autopia.

Now let's see how many cakes I can find for the rest!

Peter Pan's Flight:

(By Good Gosh Ganache)

Can you believe that leafy texture on the top tier?! And the nailed wood planks on the cake board?


Snow White's Scary Adventures:

(By The Vagabond Baker)

Loooove thie gray, white, and red color palette. Stunning.


Mr. Toad's Wild Ride:

(By Childs Cakey Cake)

Or, as some of us Dizgeeks prefer to call it, "Mr. Toad Goes To Hell."
It was a simpler stranger time back then, kids.

(And this cake is stunning. Love the cat tails!)


Jungle Cruise:

(By Margie Carter Cake World)

The nearest and dearest to my heart of course, since I'm a former JC skipper (though at WDW.) Free tours of the back side of water, folks, any time I happen to have a bottle of water on hand. ;)


Main Street Cinema:

(By The Chain Lane Cake Co.)

Ok, technically not a ride, but still a delightful place to watch classic Mickey shorts and escape the heat.


King Arthur Carousel:

(By Maria de Los Angeles Castro)

I half expect this cake to start moving, it's so perfect!


Mad Tea Party:

(By Torte d'incanto)

There are lots of great Alice teacup cakes out there, but I fell for this sweet vintage take - and Alice's perfect ruffly petticoats.


Storybook Land Canal Boats:

(By A Wish and a Whisk)

This bottom tier is Storybook Land themed - see Monstro on the left? But you're allowed to gawk at all the rest, too. ;)


So I couldn't find a decent Mark Twain Riverboat or Disney Railroad cake, but to make it up to you, here's a fan favorite that wasn't there opening day:

Haunted Mansion!


And you guys, LOOK at this detailed piping:

(By Disneyland Resort, more pics here)

Un. Be. LIEVABLE. Amirite?


And one last Sweet hurrah for (one of) the Happiest Places On Earth:

(By Cakelava)


Happy Birthday, Disneyland! Here's to many, many more Sweet years.

Sunday Sweets: 10 Adorable Baby Shower Cakes

It's been far too long since we oohed and aahed over Sweet baby shower cakes, minions. I blame myself. And sometimes John.


Because lookie:

(By De La Créme)

What Sweet monkey business is this?! I want to pet that fuzzy little tail, and those colors! Ah!


Of course, classic soft pastels are classic:

(By Shereen's Cakes & Bakes)

...and I love the watercolor touches in the clouds and balloons.


Did you know a cake can wear suspenders? And that it's just as adorable as it sounds?

(By The Cake Witch)



And I dare you not to gasp over this Sweet flower field:

(By HapiCakes)


Not gonna lie, this next one is my favorite:

(By On the Sweet Side)

Baby crocs? A rubber ducky pattern? All in an oh-so-cheerful yellow with the tiniest touches of pink?



Though it's hard to pick favorites when there are baby elephants around like this:

(By Steel Penny Cakes)


...or chic chalkboard patterns like this:

(By Sugar Sweet Cakes And Treats)


...or ruffly nautical numbers, like this!

(By Butterflour)



Here's a buzz-worthy design for the mother-to-BEE:

(By Cakes By Roselyn)

"How lucky we are to be a hive right now!"

(Sorry/not sorry.)


And finally, good luck convincing yourself this gorgeous stack of gifts & wee crochet booties are edible:

(By Sweet Lake Cakes)

...because WOW. Am I right? WOW.

Hope you enjoyed Sweets today, guys! Happy Sunday!
