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 Goes Looking For Pooh

Happy Winnie-the-Pooh day, guys!

Yep, it's author A.A. Milne's birthday, so you know what that calls for:

(By Sugar Creations)


(He fell in? Aw, Pooh!)


And because everything's more fun with friends:

(By Marzia Caruso)

That smile on Piglet is making my whole day.


You know the wonderful thing about Tiggers?

(By Handi's Cakes)

Sometimes, they're made of cake!


The Disney version of Pooh and the gang is most popular, of course, so it's always fun to find designs based on E. H. Shepard's classic illustrations:

(By Sweet Chile Cakes by Stephanie)

That's all handpainted! Love how the balloon goes from 2D to 3D.

A shot of the other side:


Another classic Pooh - gotta love all those little bees!

(By Isabella's Sweet Tooth)


And here's an original design of the Hundred Acre Wood gang:

(By TRP Cake Studio)



Speaking of cute, I'd like this Pooh Bear as a fuzzy little statue for my desk, please:

(By Bake-A-Boo)

Pretty please?


And while you're at it, I'll take this Eeyore as a huggable plush:

(By Cake Magic)



Tigger has always been John's favorite, and he claims that if he ever gets a tattoo, it'll be of a cutie version of Tigger, like this:

(By Eat Cake Be Merry)

Just so you all know, I'm 100% behind this idea. :)


Not only is this next one adorable, with its teensy clothes line and pastel bunting, it also has little Roo!

(By Torte di Ivana)

See him? He's driving the train!

Woo woo! Seriously, this cute is approaching dangerous, slide-off-the-chair-as-a-puddle-of-goo levels.


And finally, one more of the silly old bear himself:

(By Estrele Cakes)

The background plaque, the "floating" balloon, the fence posts - I love this design! So fun and clever.

Happy Sunday, everyone, and TTFN!

What a nice surprise! I've loved that silly old bear for a long time now, so it's nice to see all this cakey goodness. I've gotta say the Eeyore one has got to be my favorite; I want to teach him how to smile, dang it!

The only acceptable Pooh on a cake. These are beautiful.

January 18, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterSheri

I am speechless. It makes the weeks awful.....THINGS...(so hard to tell what they are sometimes) worth suffering. Some of these, in fact, today, ALL of these, are art forms and should be preserved (In Fimo copies and AFTER they have been eaten)

January 18, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterKirri

Awwwww! I especially love the classic Winnie the Pooh illustrations. They are the best. Adore the 3D bees!!!!!

"It is more fun to talk to someone who doesn't use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like, "What about lunch?" "
Or.... "What about cake?"

January 18, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterMaureen

Oh, the first one with the fute little Pooh butt! With a cute little bee on it! SQUEEEEEEE!!!!!

January 18, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterTLC

Loooooooooooove that "Silly Ol' Bear"!! And that one Tigger cake is Übet Kawaii!!

January 18, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterBigg3469

Oh, who doesn't love Pooh? Don't raise your hands; just sit down...on a bee hive! These are unBearably sweet...Go ahead and groan, and how did you guys (John & Jen) miss that? I'd like one of each, as figurines. I also like the Fimo idea, Kirri! If you make a Pooh, don't forget to make his blue balloon in his "favorite size" !=^~.~^=

January 18, 2015 | Unregistered Commentersendingtheclowns

If I ever get a tattoo, it'll be of the TARDIS or the Right Hand of Doom. Or maybe both. Sorry, john (thoj)--but Tigger is my favorite, too.

January 18, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterSaraCVT

Awwwwww :D

January 18, 2015 | Unregistered Commentermindy1

I need to go back to bed (or to Kindergarten); I had them mixed up (*gasp*)! Eeyore had the balloon (sort of), not Pooh...and it was red, not blue. These things are important! =^~.-^=

January 18, 2015 | Unregistered Commentersendingtheclowns

Hey John (thoj), I will tell you that as the worlds biggest wuss who hates needles, that in the later stages of my 50's JUST got my first tattoo two weeks ago. It was such a positive experience, I got my second one a week ago! I have had many mouth issues, requiring LOTS of injections with what I describe as "horse killer needles" and I would gladly tattoo my whole body before having another mouth injection. Go to a few tattoo places. Talk to the artists. See how the shop is run. Is it clean? What kind od people come and go? And if you'd like to take a couple hour road trip over Tampa way, I will gladly introduce you to my tattoo artist!

Great cakes today, BTW!

January 18, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterSue W.

I have to say that I consider anything with the vile Disney designs on a WRECK, so I really appreciated to two Shephard style cakes here

January 18, 2015 | Unregistered Commentertoonfan69

One thing I love about the Sunday Sweets is that it redeeems the cakes the other days....I am awed at the cakes on Sunday and left speechless that the other cakes are so gawd-awful...keep up the excellent work!!

January 18, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterJackie H.

oh, Eeyore, I love you! And I love AA Milne's works. Happy Birthday to an artist who gave us Pooh Bear and Tigger and all the other friends in the 100 acre woods.

January 18, 2015 | Unregistered Commentermsanthrope

These made my day! Hard to pick a favorite, but my loudest "awww" was for the Eeyore cake!

January 18, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterTanya

Toonfan69 I totally agree with you. The original illustrations are the best!
We played Pooh Sticks when we were kids and I played it with my own. I look forward to teaching my grandson when he is old enough (10 weeks is a wee bit young).
I can still recite the snow poem off by heart! (The more is snows, tiddly pom... )

January 18, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterCaryl

I love all of the cakes today but the Tigger ones are special and dear to my heart - I named my dog after him as a puppy because he bounced everywhere. :)

That was almost 13 years ago and up until a few months ago when his arthritis finally caught up to him, he -still- bounced. Now there's a lot less leaving the floor but he is still full of pep.

January 18, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterLady Kal

I have to agree with toonfan69. Disney's mutation of Winnie-the-Pooh and The Jungle Book turned them into something alien and sickening. It was like going to see an old friend and discovering that he had been replaced by Ronald McDonald. I have not watched a single Disney film since.

January 18, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterTachybaptus

Oh my gosh- how does one post cram in so much CUTE? The d'awww factor is off the scale this week :D

"It is more fun to talk to someone who doesn't use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words."

Try your first day trying to teach Special Ed Kindergarten English as a Second Language. You'll change you minds!!

January 19, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterAngie

I must be reading this blog too long. I was really expecting a well done cake of the other kind of pooh. I am sure it can be done. Have you seen those "cat box cakes?" They are surprisingly convincing!

January 19, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterAnne

Which Pooh tattoo are you thinking of getting, J (thoJ)? E. H. Shepard's or Disney? If the latter, it looks like you can probably say goodbye to some of your readership.

January 19, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterBea

I like the fact that on that last cake the decorator was able to get away with a typical "wreckerator" mistake as I believe it was purposeful...Gionatan...Johnathan? Unless that is a name of ethnic background which would cause me to apologize.

January 19, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterJoelle

@Joelle: Well, you got it sorta right. "Gionatan" is Italian for "Jonathan" & a fairly common name. So, say you're sorry...

January 19, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterSaraCVT

@Anne: when I was born, my parents nicknamed me "Grand Royal Purple Pooh-Ba" (whatever they were smoking, I WANT SOME). It got quickly shortened to "Pooh" or "Pooh Bear", which they call me to this day (I'm 44). I never thought much about it, but now that I have kids...they think it's HI-larious that I answer to "Pooh".

My parents owe me.

January 19, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterSaraCVT

This post made me happy.

That is all.

January 19, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterSaraV

I LOVE this! Made my Monday (day late seeing it).

January 19, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterKatrina

I love the eeyore cake ... Beatiful job
