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? ;)

They're all awesome, and my favorite is the Pink Floyd....!!!....(yay!!!) ...but I guess I can't help myself, and need to be "that one".... why is there a tea bag tag hanging out of the hot cocoa cup? Do people like marshmallows with tea? =^0.o^= (I'm a coffee cat, myself, so I plead ignorance.)

Those cakes are beautiful. I think my favorite is the Darth Vader one. The moustache mug is also very cute.
@sendinginthe clowns: I don't think those are marshmallows. I think those are white and brown sugar cubes.

Yea! I love Donny Osmond.

Please tell me that HD motorcycle is edible. Amazing cakes, as always.

Wow - those are some terrific cakes!

Oh. My. Cuteness. That mustachioed cup of tea with the adorable sugar cubes almost put me into a squee, and I'm no squee girl. Oh, what the heck. SQUEEEEEEEEEEE!

@MiA: Well, thanks! I hadn't thought of that, but might've noticed if I'd taken a sip...

Those little tiny sugar cubes are just too precious for words!

June 21, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterAmber Rainey

I drink my tea alternately out of a teacup with saucer or a coffee mug. ;D
And yep, I'd bet those are sugar cubes.

Is #7 The Invisible Man? Also, can Nigel's turntable be turned up to 11?

June 21, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterPenni

Great cakes, I love the little moustache mug and the other moustache one.

But OMG my favourite Disney song from my favourite Disney film! It's totally in my head now.

June 21, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterMarrian

The whitewater-rafting cake is awesome. Aw, heck, they're all awesome!

June 21, 2015 | Unregistered Commenterjules

@StrangeAngel> Another county heard from! Sugar cubes it is / they are! And they are indeed adorable, as well as precious...(AngelaS and Amber). I'm leaving now; sudden craving ...

I love that Song! great cakes! thank you!

I had never seen Mulan, so I thought you were making up some strange lyrics, and of course, I had no idea of the tune. After watching the video at the end, it all made sense. I wish you had placed the video first, so one can be properly prepared to appreciate the cakes and captions. Bravo! The match-ups are perfect. My favorite cake is the one with the shirt that is vaguely plaid standing on a magical wooden box. So fun!

June 21, 2015 | Unregistered Commenterphysicsmom

That's pretty much my favorite Disney song, too! I wore out my Mulan cassette tape playing it over and over.

YES, cassette tape. You got a problem with that?

Usually I really appreciate the sheer creativity and artistry of all the Sunday Sweet cakes -- but these I LOVE!!! All of them! I want them for myself -- and I'm a mom, not a dad...! "Once you find your center (of the cake -- nom, nom, nom), you are sure to win!" :)

I came back to read the new messages, and now... well...

Let's just say before writing this, I put a pot of milk on the stovetop and got out the nutella! (it makes an awesome, easy hot cocoa)

June 23, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterStrangeAngel

Phew, I was about to declare an Epcot on the sugar cubes, but the observations subsided. Great cakes, but I especially like the first one (well except for the strange pocket)--the tie is perfection!.

Actually the song I got stuck in my head was... "When in just 7 days, I can make you a man"
Rocky Horror for the win!
