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 Makeup Lovers

After today, ladies, you may find yourselves trying to take a bite out of your makeup brushes:

(By Roses And Bows Cakery)

Because how is that all cake?!

(And how surreal must it be to eat one of those lipstick tubes?)

 

Check out the powder blush on the brush on the left here:

(By Cupcake Clusters)

I think this was made to help a makeup artist advertise, but I'd be asking for the baker's card!

 

An impressive bottle of Chanel No. 5:

(By Symphony In Sugar)

The airbrushing is blowing my mind. Look at those shadows!

 

Fantastic texture on this one:

(By B Cake NY)

I'm always a fan of this style of quilting, but the sheen really makes it look like patent leather!

 

Having a Spa Party? Then check this Sweetness out:

(By Cake Couture)

Never in my life have I seen such perfect cakey towels, you guys. I want - no, NEED - to pinch one a little, just to convince myself they're sugar. The pumice stone, too, while I'm at it.

 

Speaking of which, ever had a sugar wax?

Then you deserve a cake to celebrate:

(By Kingfisher Cakes)

 

The most perfect giant lipstick cake I've found:

(By Elite Cake Designs)

PERFECTION.

 

Or, if you want one standing up:

(By Cake Central member Jovel)

 

On rare occasions I have to rely on the baker's watermark to convince me what I'm seeing is actually cake. This was one of those times:

(By Luna Cakes)

WOW.

 

This one, too:

(By Laura Jane Cake Design)

As beautiful as everything here is, it's the hand-painted rose pattern that's winning my heart.

 

And finally, one last stunner you'll never believe is cake:

(By Ennas' Cake Design)

So perfect, from the rainbow colors to the intricately tiled cake board! Then when you consider all the metallic silver accents, the interior lid pattern, the subtle shading on the makeup brushes...! IT'S ALL TOO GOOD. Love it.

 

Hope you enjoyed the eye candy, everyone! Happy Sunday!

Sunday Sweet Gets Flowery

It's Floral Design Day, you guys! LETS GET OUR FLOWERS ON.

Or at least on our cakes.

(Baker unknown.)

For a fairy tale wedding, or a wedding for actual fairies? Because this is just that pretty, you guys.

 

(By Rosebud Cakes)

Ahh, those climbing flowers on the middle tier! And the butterflies!

 

(By Torte di Nadia)

Love those big loops of ribbon on the side! They remind me of a kimonos' oversized bow (aka obi), which really adds to the modern Asian aesthetic.

 

How about a mountain of soft pastels?

(By Amy Swann Cakes)

 

Or a vibrant swag of bold oranges and pinks?

(By The Mischief Maker)

 

I'm digging the combination of this simple looped vine and background stripes:

(By Rosalind Miller Cakes)

Great colors, too.

 

And speaking of color:

(By Lulu Cake Boutique)

YES PLEASE.

 

Here's a more traditional approach, but done to perfection:

(By Sylvia Weinstock)

 

And this peaches-and-cream palette really pops on the dark chocolate ganache:

(By Jonathan Caleb)

 

I like the way these irises are arranged, and how the bottom tier is hand painted to match:

(By The Cake Whisperer)

 

So many gorgeous cakes this week, but I think this one's my favorite:

(By Lee Forest Design)

From the airbrushed geometric patterns to the woven greenery swirls tucked into the topper, it's one of the most uniquely stunning cakes I've seen in ages.

 

And finally, for the bride who wants her cake to be literally bursting with flowers:

(Baker unknown)

Sha-POW!

Such a clever combination of whimsy and elegance. Love it.

Happy Sunday, everyone!
