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 Harley Quinn

Can't get enough of Harley Quinn?

Then puddin', these Sweets are for you!

(By Teneal Ambers Cakes)

 

Have you seen Suicide Squad yet?

(By D Liche)

If so, be honest: you just went to see Harley, didn't you? :D

 

Well here's a fun factoid: Harley is not from a comic book.
That's right, she actually originated on Batman: The Animated Series in 1992, and looked like this:

(By NerdAche Cakes)

In the show she befriends Poison Ivy, which is why you see those two cosplayed together so often.

Granted, you probably already knew that, but I didn't until about a year ago, so I find it super fascinating.

 

Still, if I'm boring you: LOOK, CAKE!

(By Thoughtful Cakes)

Preeettty.

 

Harley's had a lot of different looks over the years. Here she is from the video game Arkham Asylum:

(By Mike's Amazing Cakes)

...which is a great game, btw, even if you're not a huge gamer. JEN APPROVED. You don't even have to shoot anything; just mash all the buttons and watch Batman do lots of fancy jump kicks. (I'm awesome at video games, btw.)

 

I think I may have featured this next cake before, but it's worth a repeat:

(By Dream Day Cakes)

Ahhh. I want to gnaw off her little hat horns. Although I don't think they're called "hat horns." But seriously, this design is soooo good.

 

Another sweet-and-simple harlequin style:

(By Sinful Sweets By Rosy)

 

Oh! Have you seen the new Vinyl Vixens from Funko? I kind of want them all. (YES I'M A GROWN WOMAN.) Especially now that I see they make pretty cool cake toppers:

(By Wal-Mart. Yes, Wal-Mart. I AM SO CONFLICTED RIGHT NOW.)

 

Or, if you're feeling extra ambitious, here's a Harley dress cake:

(By Cakes Step By Step)

Complete with video tutorial!

(Dang that's a lot of work!)

 

I am now, and will forever be a sucker for all things cute, so I'm melting over this one:

(By Roxy Armenta)

How genius is it to use the cartoony "bomb" fuse for a candle? Squee!

 

And finally, one more Margot Robbie-inspired design:

(By Bella Cakes)

Digging the softer colors, and of course that handpainting is amaaazing.

 

Hope you guys enjoyed! Happy Sunday!

Sunday Sweets: Modern Geometry

There's a geometric trend sweeping the wedding cake world, peeps, and I APPROVE:

(By Erica Obrien Cake Design)

What sweet sorcery is this? It feels retro and modern at the same time.

 

It's pure modern elegance in these sea-swept tiles, though:

(By Cake Life, featured here)

In fact, I like this one so much I think it got into my subconscious: I just realized the curtain I bought this week is the same teal ombre! Ha! (Now if only I could find real tiles like this to match.)

 

This next one defies description:

(By Olofson Design. Photography by Anneli Marinovich)

What do you think, "exploding pastel fractal"? Maybe?
(Dig that stand!)

 

I know exactly how to describe this one, though:

(By Very Unique Cakes by Veronique)

WANT.

Yep, that fan topper is breaking my brain in the best possible way. Love it.

 

Raise your hand if you can't believe this next one's cake:

(By Amy Beck Cake Design)

[raises hand]

Such a rich masculine vibe, though. Me likey.

 

I've always felt there isn't enough kelly green in the world, so this little Pretty is making my day:

(By Cake Your Day)

Not to mention I want that topper as a hair clip, STAT.

 

Oooh, but here comes my favorite color combo:

(By Sweet And Saucy Shop, featured here)

Mmm, orange and teal goodness.

 

I also love the drippy candy thing (technical term) that's so popular right now, so this is a cool combo:

(Baker Unknown. Help?)

Check out the hexagonal lollipops, and that patterned topper! Rockin'.

 

Although there's a kind of serenity to these chic clean lines:

(By Sweet Fix, featured here)

Ahhh. Perfection.

 

And finally, for those brides who crave a touch of blue, you simply CANNOT beat this gilded Sapphire beauty:

(By The SweeterE, featured here)

The patterns, the textures, the perfect floral placement! YES.

 

Hope you enjoyed today's Sweets, everyone! Happy Sunday!
