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: Christmas Glee

Does all the holiday prep ever leave you feeling a little...


(By Kricky Cakes and Airbrush, Hungary)


Don't worry!
We have some ideas to perk you right up.

Let's start by hugging this well-dressed reindeer.
And maybe nibbling on his antlers.

(By Creme and Fondant, Germany)

Instant endorphins and a sugar rush!


How about a catnap?

(By Fiorella Balzamo, Italy)

Although, technically, I guess this is a mousenap.


You can let these two finish up your baking.

(By CakeHeaven by Marlene, Malta)

(I hear they need a taste tester.)


Perhaps it's time to start daydreaming about that post-holiday vacation?

(By Magical Cakes, New Zealand)

Don't forget your sunblock, Santa!


Have you tried to recruit some woodland creatures to mail your Christmas cards?

(By Aurelia's Cake, Scotland)

Well, maybe you should.


You could save a lot of energy if you just skipped the laundry and ran around naked.
What? You're too shy?

Well, start with this naked cake.

(By Viva la Tarta, Spain)

It's one of the prettiest I've seen.


If you really need to veg out, you could play with this snow globe.

(By Cake That Designs, United Kingdom)

Snowy fun without the frostbite!


If all else fails, just stare out the window for a while.

(By Made with Love, England)

Maybe you'll see something that inspires you.


Just remember to take care of yourself,
and I'm sure you'll be ready for these guys in no time.

(By Nasa Mala Zavrzlama, Serbia)


Whatever you do, we hope your holidays are Sweet!

They are all so lovely that I cannot possibly pick a favorite.

Aw, the Santa surfer is adorable - but remember, it is summer in New Zealand in December!
And I agree that the naked cake is really quite pretty.

So interesting that all these marvelous cakes are from outside the United States! American Bakers, you better take a lesson in Cuteness!

That polar bear looking up at the candy: adorable!!

I want the window cake!

December 17, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterMorag

The window one looks like a view from the TARDIS,

All of these are adorable, as expected, but I cannot get over the technical skill needed to create that sugar globe on the snow globe cake. To get one that clear with no flaws is astounding!

December 17, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterAngelaS

These are wonderful! I keep going back to the snow globe- wow! But they are all terrific!
