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: Cake of the Doctor

Happy Doctor Who Day, everyone! Come get some CAKE!

(By Sweet Dream Cake Company)

Gotta kick things off with the world's most famous blue box, and this one is a whopping four feet tall!


I wanted to show off more than just the TARDIS, though, so here are some sweet Who villains to liven up the party:

(By Happy Occasions Cakes)

A Cake Cyberman? Now THAT is an upgrade.


But I'd still be willing to exterminate this Dalek...

(By Mike's Amazing Cakes)




If you have to make a cake of the Doctor's most terrifying villain, then I say, turn the Doctor into a bunny rabbit! That way the cute will even out the scary, like so:

(Also by Mike's Amazing Cakes)

Don't blink - 'cuz that bunny Who is too sweet to miss!


Careful, though; I think the Weeping Angel is peeking:



Do you believe in delicious irony?

(By Eat the Evidence)

Because eating a cakey adipose is wrong in all the right ways.


And not a villain at all, but check out this outstanding Ood!

(By That Little Cake Boutique for Wibbly Wobbly Cakey Bakers)

I hear his translation sphere even lights up!


Of course, we can't celebrate Doctor Who without the Time Lord himself:

(By Pink Cake Box)

As dashing as Eleven looks, I can't get over the open TARDIS door. WOW.


And here's one with homages to both Ten & Eleven:

(By Un Jeu d'Enfant)

Bow ties and fezzes and 3D glasses, oh my!


I love that the good Doctor is popping up in more themed weddings these days. Check out the oh-so-elegant Gallifreyan writing on this beauty:

(By Nom Nom Sweeties)


And here's John's favorite: an explosion of color with lots of Whovian surprises!

(By Artisan Cake Company)

I spy an adipose, an angel, and an ambushing Dalek!


And for the hardcore fans, let's see how much of this next one you recognize!

(By Delicious Snackies)

I see the fourth Doctor's scarf, a Time Lord's medallion, the crack in time (so cool), roses, Gallifreyan text, and I *think* that's a sonic screwdriver and the Master's pocket watch on top. WOWZA.

(Hit the link for more pics of the bottom tier; did anyone translate it yet?)


And finally, a gorgeous pop of classic colors and great design:

(By Cake Central member Emilsmee)

Love that bold red outlining, and the hand-painted tier of the famous Van Gogh "exploding TARDIS" is just perfect!


Hope you enjoyed today's Timey Wimey treats, everyone! No go forth, and be wibbly wobbly!

Sesame Street Sweets!

Last Monday was Sesame Street Day, so how about a little belated 'Street partying? Besides, the gang's all here!

(By Leah's Cake Creations)

I've often been told I have angry eyebrows, so I think Oscar and I would get along. And if not, I bet the trash talk would be EPIC.


(By Cake Central Member AnnieA)

Big Bird! Such a classic. I'm 39 years old, and I still want to give him a big hug.


(By Lovely Cakes)

Elmo gets the BEST colors; check out that fade on the bottom tier!


And for something to make you go, "Awwww":

(By Bella Cupcakes)



Here's a fabulous Ernie:

(By Marianne Van Beek)

Wait. Is that a blue Big Bird on the right side of the cake?!


Huh. Apparently that's Pino, the Dutch version of Big Bird.
Now you know.
(And knowing is half the battle!)


(By Cake Lava)

Jen claims that Cookie Monster eats cookies the way I eat popcorn.
I'm not saying she's right, I'm just saying you should always learn from the master, kids.


Now... the cutest thing ever:

(By Particular Cakes)

Look at those feet!


And now, the muppet with the best laugh:

(By Cakes Decor member Nori)

Ah! Ah! Ahhh!
Come to think of it, my eyebrows may also be a bit Count-like.


And speaking of fuzzy things:

(By Cupcakes Nouveau, now closed.)

These are beyond fabulous. And mini marshmallows for packing peanuts? YES.


And last but not least, group shot!

(By The Royal Bakery)

So fun! I especially love the layered "feathers" on Big Bird.
