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: Pixar Pretties!

Love Pixar movies?
Love cake?
Then do *I* have the Sweets for YOU.


The Incredibles:

(By Little Cherry Cake Company)

Talk about living up to its name! That glass globe used for Violet's force shield is brilliant.


Toy Story:

(By Cake Central member Ann-Jannae)

There are so many great Toy Story cakes out there, but I especially love this design and extra details like the etch-a-sketch.


A Bug's Life:

(By A Wish and a Whisk)

Heimlich! And look closely; see Flik hiding down below?


I even found a cake for the Pixar short For The Birds!

(By Cakes of Desire)

I love the one sticking his tongue out. :)


Finding Nemo:

(Baker unknown, anyone recognize it?)

Proof it doesn't always take a lot of tiers to make a masterpiece. ;) I'm really digging how the baker elevated Nemo & Marlin to add more height.



(By House of Cakes Dubai)

You see so many cakes of Lightning McQueen & Mater, it's nice to see one of The Sheriff!



(By Debbie Does Cakes)

Remy! Who knew a cake of a giant rat could be this endearing?



(By Lorinda Seto)

The amount of detail in those tires is blowing my mind. I still have to remind myself these are all cake from time to time.



(By Torten Design KS)

One of the sweetest hand-sculpted Meridas I've seen, and that dress design on the cake? Awesome sauce.


Monsters, Inc.:

(By Sweet Disposition Cakes)

Aw, Boo! And I just want to pet Sulley's shaggy head.



(By la Pequeña Pasteleria De Mama)


Carl & Ellie have got to be the sweetest animated couple ever, so I love seeing them together like this. Just lookit that smile on Carl! And great use of balloons in the back there, too. :)


Hope you guys enjoyed! Happy Sunday!

I always love the Sunday Sweets. But the one of Pixar's For the Birds....Wow! My favorite short in CAKE! I am basically a fossil, so I no longer celebrate birthdays, but if I did, that would be the cake I would want. Wow!

Amazing! And I just MIGHT have teared up at the Up cake.

A friend of mine got married a couple weeks ago and wanted Pixar music at her wedding, so we had some Bug's Life and some Up going on - and now I REALLY wish they'd had that last cake.

These guys seem to be claiming the nemo cake, and I couldn't find anywhere else that was?

Great cakes - so much detail, they are all fantastic! And great films too, gotta love Pixar! I would like to add, if you are a fan of "For the Birds", you have to take a look at "Make Pretty Cakes" version, she's at . Check out her cover photo, then be sure to find the close-up pictures in her photo album too. AMAZING!

October 12, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterAngel

October 12, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterDiana

That's the mightiest pixar cake selection ever Jen! All of them so unique and beyond cute! The last one is true pleasure to look at both for the art and for the heart.

October 12, 2014 | Unregistered Commentertania

Pixar films are magical to me, and making them into cake so skillfully gives me the squees. And I may just be the woman least likely to squee in the tri-state area. So sweet.

October 12, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterAngelaS

I showed the Toy Story cake to my 3 year old, she refused to believe it was cake 'Jessie's not cake, she's a toy'

October 13, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterBeth

those are amazing!

October 14, 2014 | Unregistered Commenterarchersangel

Who is the kid in blue on the Incredibles cake?
