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 Makes Sure You Eat Your Greens

So hey, how are those New Year's Resolutions coming? Hmmm?

Oof, same here.

Not to worry, though, because I'm about to help you out BIG TIME. Here come 10 Unexpectedly Delicious Healthy Meals for 2019.

First up, a hearty Caesar Salad:

(By Coco's Cupcakes in London)

... which is actually cake.


Yes, even the bowl is cake! The lettuce is edible wafer paper - but if you're like me and don't believe that (WHAT SORCERY IS THIS?), then check out this Youtube tutorial showing you how to make your own.


For those of you pointing out that Caesar dressing is hardly diet food, that's an excellent point. Maybe we should eat the romaine raw instead:

::knowing grin::

Now, before you say anything, YES I HAVE PROOF IT'S CAKE:


Oh, and the clear plastic? Edible gelatin sheets.


Maybe you'd like something even closer to nature, though:

(By Sweet Illusions in Australia)

Mmm, dirt. Oh, and vegetables.


Or you know what they say about apples:

(By Torta Decor in Hungary - who has a video tutorial for the apples here!)

"An apple a day keeps the doctor away... but cake apples taste way better."

::nodding sagely:: Those hedgehogs know what's up, y'all.


You know what's amazing about all this asparagus?

(By Coco's Cupcakes in London)

I mean, besides the fact that it's all cake?

No weird smells later. You know what I'm talking about.

(John's giving me a Look. We better move on.)


I'm proud to say I would eat all of these vegetables:

(By Ira Torte in Croatia)

Yep, I'm just a health nut that way. (And if anyone asks, I'm chewing on the wood crate for fiber.)


I know we've covered salads pretty thoroughly, but hang on, just one more:

(By The Sweet Life Cakes & Cookies By Julie in Michigan)

How cute is this: She added the birth date & birth weight to the packaging! So clever!


And again, I have the photo you'll need to win some arguments later:

This breaks my brain in the best possible way.


Right, that's enough salads. Who wants a nice healthy steak?

(By Bubolinkata Cakes in Bulgaria)

WELL TOUGH. You get cake instead. (Even the knife!)

The painting on those tomato slices is blowing my mind, by the way. And the lemon! And the corn!


I'm more of a soup person, to be honest, so this bowl of deliciousness is calling my name... PHO SHO:

(By Sweet Nom Bakery in Canada)

I'd apologize for that terrible pun, but I'm too busy drooling over here. Once again, even the bowl is cake - but my brain is flat-out refusing to accept that the shredded meat and cilantro are made of sugar. How. HOW??


Well gang, I hope I've helped your New Year's Resolutions along - if only by showing you that things could always be worse. I mean, you could be eating cake for every meal.

Mmm, cake for every meal.

Caaake for every meeeeal.

I'm sorry, where were we?

Oh! Right! I was going to show you the craziest thing I found last week while researching for this post. It's so insane I decided I had to share, so... enjoy:

(By About Cake in the UK)

Tell me that's not the coolest pineapple skull cake you've ever seen. TELL ME.


Oh, and happy Sunday! Whatever your resolutions, here's hoping 2019 treats you extra sweet.


Thank you for using our Amazon links to shop! USA, UK, Canada.

......Well, it is the ONLY pineapple skull head I've ever seen, as a cake, and I am pinehappy to meet it. (I have sunglasses just like his/hers/its, too!) All of them are "Mmmmwaah!"

January 6, 2019 | Unregistered Commentersendingtheclowns

I learned the hard way that if you make cake look like another food, then the slices have to look like cake. A giant hamburger cake I made was fine, but a pizza cake was difficult, since the slices looked like pizza. My husband still talks about it 30 years later, that it was just too hard to eat and tasted funny!

January 6, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterBin

i would not be able to eat a piece of cake that looked just like a veggie - it would break my brain!

January 6, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterSteph

I don't eat that many vegetables - I know, bad on me - but I would definitely eat any of these veggies.

January 6, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterJane Lewis

Wow, these are some fruits and vegetables I can eat all the time!

January 6, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterLynne

The skull is my favorite, today, because it's so cute, and because I have the SAME sunglasses!
Also, it is just the real BEST, in my blahblah blah WHERE are all of everyone else?


January 6, 2019 | Unregistered Commentersendingtheclowns

I can't get the links to work... Is it just me? :-(

January 6, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterEm Bee

Wow. Turns out About Cake are ten minutes from me. Kinda odd to be finding out via a Floridian blog!

January 6, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterDave

wow, just wow! And those hedgehogs are just adorable.

January 7, 2019 | Unregistered Commentermary

I love all the “wrecks” on Cake Wrecks, don’t get me wrong, but these awesome Sunday posts are my faves, every week. This one is pretty much level up though. TFS

January 7, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterKatrina

Darn it, now I'm hungry! Especially for that soup one, that looked amazing!

January 7, 2019 | Unregistered Commenterpointe4Jesus
