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 Wild!

We usually have pretty sedate New Year's Eves,
but this year I've invited a bunch of


I think we've put together a great guest list,
to guarantee a wild party.


Let's start with Hedgie.
She thinks every party is a birthday party, so she always brings candles.

(by Leslie Vigil, California)

We don't say anything in case she gets prickly.
Plus the candle's handy if there's a power outage.


Jerry offered to come early to help hang decorations, which was so nice.

(by Pink Cake Box, New Jersey)

And his friends are just as sweet.


Of course I invited the cool cats from down the street.

(by Sugarbombe, Oregon)

They help us get into that party feline.

And it's always wise to include Otis.

(by Elegantly Iced, New York, now closed.)

He's on my Trivial Pursuit team.
Hostess' privilege.


Toothless always brings his own hat, which saves on supply costs.

(by Sula de Oliveira, Brazil)

And he offered to do the midnight fireworks!


It turns out loud fiery things in the sky scare dinosaurs, though,
so we might stick with sparklers this year.

(by Cottontail Cake Studio, Manila)

Don't worry, they promised not to eat anyone.
(It's not covered by our Homeowner's insurance.)


Pusheen brings the best desserts, so she's a must invite.

(by Susanne Ng, Singapore)

(You guys, this is NOT a plushie. It's chiffon cake, flavored with black sesame to get the color.
I don't know whether I want to eat it or just hug it really hard.)


Lloyd here is the life of the party;
I can't tell you how many times he's snuck up on me with that noisemaker.

(by Karen Leong Cake Design, Malaysia)

He's also our designated driver.


I keep telling everyone the Butterbeer is non-alcoholic - but you can understand their concern when they start seeing pink elephants.

(by De Koekenbakkers, the Netherlands)

Hi Tina!

Ironically, Tina always drives herself home.


And finally, there's Freddy.
He's a brilliant conversationalist, and he sings beautifully.

(by Art Bakin', Slovakia)

Although, let's be honest, he really just wants someone to kiss him at midnight.


We hope you have a Sweet New Year's Eve,
and maybe keep Freddy in mind when midnight rolls around.

Happy New Year!

The adorableness is OFF THE CHARTS!! The texture of Pusheen is amazing! I can't pick a favorite.. though I lean towards (not too close) to the hedgie, Toothless, llama and frog.
