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: COOKIES!!

We all love cake best here, of course, but have you noticed how cookies have started going 3D?

(By Modesta's Rainbow, Russia)

It's a whole 'nother dimension of sugary goodness!! And I approve.


Besides, who could resist a pastel rainbow of stand mixers?

(By 1 Fine Cookie, video tutorial at the link)

I want to fill those little cookie mixing bowls with sweet cream, then eat one whole with one big CHOMP.


Speaking of chomping: Beware, for here there be dragons:

Cookie dragons!

(By Lucky Penny Cookies, no longer in business)

This reminds me of a laser-cut wood puzzle - and that piping work is phenomenal.


You already know how I feel about the dreaded cupcake cake (ptooie!), but cookies? COOKIES TOTALLY WORK:

(By Rocking Horse Sugar Decor, Idaho)

See? Gorgeous and fun and no sticky icing all over your hands. I'm especially loving this design and colors; it's just so HAPPY, and each cookie is a pretty piece all on its own.


You're not going to believe this, but these baby rattles are actual rattles:

(By Julia M. Usher, video tutorial here.)

They're made of cookies, and filled with candy! So you could use them as gender-reveal cookies.

Seriously, my mind? Blown. Just look at all that piping detail!


Next we've got a starry pastel dreamland that has my inner 8-year-old squealing:

(By Sugar Cat, Taiwan)

Eeee! SO CUTE.


Here's one for confused cake lovers:

(By Zoe Clark Cakes, Australia)

Cookies that look like mini cakes! D'awwwww.


Confession Time: I find this frog cookie absolutely ribbeting:

(By Sweetopia, tutorial at the link)

Those sugar gem water droplets are so clever, love that extra sparkle.


Here comes another cookie... mosaic? Cookie puzzle?

(By Melissa Joy Fanciful Cookies, Wisconsin)

Whatever you call it, I'm digging the puzzle-piece effect, and how you can stack them to make a pretty centerpiece.


And finally, the sweetest little fairy houses:

(By De Koekenbakkers, The Netherlands)

I couldn't eat this; I'd want to wear it on my sweater like a fancy fairy pin. Or I'd put it on my desk so I could stare at it all day. Mmmmm.

Happy Sunday, everyone! I hope these made you smile!

Ha- I loved your "ribbeting"......! Now I want to have a cookie; someone told me to "Kermit get it, before they're all gone"!

Wow, those rattles! Too pretty to eat!

January 20, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterFM

WOW! Truly amazing

January 20, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterKathy

Wow, I like them all! I have been scrolling up and down to look at them over and over!

I never knew I needed that kind of cookie cake until now.

January 20, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterLauren

Couldn’t eat the castle either. I’d just stare at it all day!

January 20, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterSheila

These are all adorable (the flower mosaic is my favorite). But the trouble I have with fancy cookies is I can't imagine they taste great. They'd have to be pretty hard to hold up (especially the 3D ones),and I really can't get into royal icing. But there's a benefit to not being tempted to eat something - then you could preserve these beautiful works of art!

Have you seen these? (Not affiliated, just a follower)

Those fairy houses are what it would look like if the Sanderson Sisters were GOOD witches!
