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: Just For You, Mom!

My mom is awesome, so I'd really like to do something extravagant for her for Mother's Day.

Like a new car!

(Submitted by Kate O,, made by deviantART member Sliceofcake)

Ahh, imagine the purr on that engine.

 

Or, wait, no. A camper! And a pontoon boat!

(By The Royal Bakery)

Perfect for weekends!

 

Or maybe I should get her something nice for everyday. Like a pretty piece of jewelry.

(By Sweet Discoveries)

 

Or a whole box of jewelry!

(By Celebrate with Cake)

 

And maybe a new purse?

(Submitted by Diana I., & made by Jacques Fine European Pastries)

 

Oooh, ooh, wait. Luggage! She LOVES vintage luggage!

(By Inticing Creations)

But luggage is no fun if you can't use it, so...

 

I know! A cruise!

(By Cake Over Heels)

 

A nice cruise with a stop in -- let's see -- Paris!

(By Sifted Bakery)

With a credit line at the Maison du Chocolat. Haha!

 

Then on the way home she can stop in Africa for a photo safari:

Knowing Mom, I'll bet she tries to bring home a cute elephant.

(By Merritt's Bakery, which ONLY makes buttercream cakes. Can you believe that's fondant-free?)

Well, we could widen the doors to accommodate his ears, I guess, and... and...

Hang on, what am I doing?

I'm sure Mom would rather know I listened to her advice, saved my money, and just spent some time today telling her how much I love her.

(By Sweet Ruby Cakes)

 

But I'm still getting her flowers.

(By Gezabella Cakes, who wrote that note just for us!)

Hey, Mom didn't raise any dummies.

 

Happy Mother's Day, everyone! Here's hoping it's your Sweetest yet. :) Oh, and be sure to check out our Sunday Sweets Directory if you want to see which bakers in your area have been featured here on Sweets!

May the Fourth Be With These Sweets

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away...

LOOK, CAKES!

(By Cake Power)

 

Yessir, it's May the Fourth, my friends, and we are gonna party like the Ewoks with a fresh batch of Storm Troopers.

(Submitted by Steve B. and made by For Goodness Cakes)

Mmmm.

(Yeah, I went there.)

 

But wait, what's this?

OH HOW THE TABLES HAVE TURNED!

 

If you have any qualms about slicing into a cute lil Ewok, though, then I have just the cake for you:

(By Blue Note Bakery)

Yo, Jabba Jabba.

 

This Yoda cake is entirely fondant-free, and I love it:

(Submitted by Christy L. and made by Sugar Love) 

"Delicious I am. Use the forks, you must."

 

Are you ready for the cutest Star Wars baby cake ever?

Then behold, Baby Star Wars, The Playground Menace!

(By I've Been Cupcaked)

In case there's ever a future revision of this cake, I'd like to point out that Han shot bubbles first. (With his bubble gun, I mean - unless you'd rather think that Darth's nickname as a baby was Bubbles, in which case... I'm actually Ok with that.)

 

And if that's not the most adorable baby Chewie ever, then this one has to be:

(By Tuff Cookie Cakes)

Oh. My. Cute. That belly!! Squee!

 

Ok, enough adorableness. Now witness the fire power of this fully armed and operational battle station!

(Submitted by Elizabeth A. and made by justkist)

Er... you want ice cream with that?

 

Here's one for you Clone Wars fans:

(By Cake Central Member virago)

The helmet pops are awesome, sure, but I can't take my eyes off that amazing handpainted Yoda. It's hard to tell where the painting ends and the actual 3D elements begin!

 

[Insert obligatory "this IS the droid you're looking for" quip here]

(By Sugarland)

R2 cakes may seem simple, but check out how the body is completely supported by the three legs. That's some impressive edible engineering!

 

Now, this Millennium Falcon may not look like much, but... wait a sec, YES IT DOES:

(Submitted by Deena S. and made by Charm City Cakes)

It's hard to tell in this photo, but the Falcon is even suspended over the cake board by a central post. WOWZA.

 

Of course it's only fitting that everyone's favorite bounty hunter is close behind:

(Made by Bonnie O.)

Chipped up metal never looked so tasty.

 

Look out, brides and grooms, 'cuz it's gettin' Hoth in here!

(Submitted by Karin D. and made by Coast Cakes)

Check out the tiny snow speeders! And the Wampa cave mouth!

 

And finally, because the couple that quotes Star Wars together, STAYS together:

(Submitted by Fiona H. and found here; baker unknown)

Awww. If only everyone could get encased in carbonite for that special someone.

Or... not. ;)

 

Happy May the Fourth, everyone! And be sure to check out our Sunday Sweets Directory if you want to see which bakers in your area have been featured here on Sweets!
