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 Gets Suspended!

But not like that.

Like this!

(By Ponquecitos and Cakes)

Yes, today is all about cakes enchanted by Molly Weasley, because CLEARLY there is magic at work here. Beautiful, delicious magic.


FACT: Everything is more adorable round. Even elephants.

(By Sonhos de Encantar)

They remind me of the Rollin' Safari videos. (Which I just had to go watch again.) Cracks me up every. single. time.


And this one looks like a surrealist painting:

(By Divina Tentacion)


Now, your moment of Zen:

(By Antonio's Kitchen)

How can something be so peaceful and mind-blowing at the same time?
The rock garden base! The natural textures! Stone, moss, wood - there are even tiny lily pads in the center. WOW.


Then there's this:

(By Laura Loukaides)

I've seen a lot of suspended pour cakes, peeps, but this? This is the best one. Look closely; the cream is even splashing UP off the strawberries!


A cake doesn't have to float to break my brain, though; sometimes it can just be a perfectly balanced circle:

(By Anna Maria Cake Design)

What do you guys think of that design? Funky cool, right? I love the dots.


Right, you know the drill:

(By Homemade Sweetness)

Dewalt, I believe? :D

So a drill is a hard thing to sculpt anyway, but then to levitate it? And use the "sawdust" to spell out "Dad"? GENIUS.


I was so distracted by all the cute on this next one it took me a minute to realize how clever the construction is:

(By Sharon Wee, Faye Cahill, Anna Maria, and Margie Carter)

I'm pretty sure that mouse is NOT holding up the cake slice; it's being supported through the cake itself. Which is incredible.


And one last gravity-defying show-stopper for your Sunday:

(By Sweet Temptations)

I see ocean waves carrying flowers - how about you? And look at that tiny point supporting the entire structure, which is perfectly straight! Ahhh-mazing.


Hope you enjoyed getting suspended with Sweets today! Happy weekend, everyone!

Simply unbelievable! Fantastic! Mind-blowing! There aren't enough superlatives in my vocabulary for this collection. The little mice, the drill, the bowl of strawberries, the mixer - do I have to pick just ONE favorite?

OMG those are true examples of cake art :O that one with the spray cans is AMAZING. I am also in love with the cream and berries cake :O

Thank you for these fabulous cakes!

The magician who made the strawberries and cream cake has the tutorial on her website. Seeing how it was done makes it no less magical. In fact, looking at all of her cakes (even the ones that don't defy gravity) makes me even more convinced; surely no one mere human being can possess that much talent - I'm sure she studied pastry arts at Hogwarts!

Those cakes are ally jawdropping amazing!!

April 2, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterMaureen S

They're ALL insane.
But the insane-est one to me is fourth from last (Circle of Love)....
I scrolled up, and down...up, and down...looking at it....and I swear those concentric circles were pulsating!!!
Just magical.

Those were amazing. The mice got me to squee, though.

So it seems the graffiti cake is by Mike's Amazing Cakes.

Mike's has done a birthday cake for a Sofie before.

Master Bakers. <snigger>

How do you cut these?!

April 2, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterElizabeth

Wow, that first one is so meta.

April 2, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterMiranda

How DO you make a cake that seems to float in midair? For there to be so many kinds there has to be a technique to keep the thing from falling over, but what?

April 2, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterNathan R.

Absolutely jaw-dropping! They're all gorgeous, but if I could have just one, it would be those adorable mice. Even though I'm a power tool junkie.

April 2, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterPatricia

Even though you're famous for your puns, "You know the drill" caught me by surprise (and made me laugh out loud). It's so hard to believe it's a cake - they got everything right. I say this as a professional miniaturist.

April 2, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterSue

wow. just wow! and hats off to the creators of these works of art!!!

April 2, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterAddie

Those are some awesome cakes!!!! Totally unbelievable, and breathtakingly beautiful! I bow to these artists 👏🍰🤗🙂

April 2, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterMaryO1230

These are wonderful! Thank you for sharing these- what a nice thing to enjoy!

April 3, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterChicago

Absolutely beautiful fantastic cakes

April 3, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterDonna

The graffiti cake was made by Mike's Amazing Cakes.

April 3, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterTheresa

Yep, the graffiti one is Mike McCarey. It's structural perfection. It's not on his site and hard to source because he posted it briefly to FB but then took it down...when I mentioned to him recently he was surprised anyone had seen it!

April 3, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterKimberly

I need someone to give me all of these. I especially love the elephants. I don't really understand how you'd cut some of them but they;re so cool you maybe wouldn't want to cut them!

April 5, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterKiwiCath

I want to take that zen one and spin it slowly so I can see it from all angles!
