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: Cake of the Doctor

Happy Doctor Who Day, everyone! Come get some CAKE!

(By Sweet Dream Cake Company)

Gotta kick things off with the world's most famous blue box, and this one is a whopping four feet tall!

 

I wanted to show off more than just the TARDIS, though, so here are some sweet Who villains to liven up the party:

(By Happy Occasions Cakes)

A Cake Cyberman? Now THAT is an upgrade.

 

But I'd still be willing to exterminate this Dalek...

(By Mike's Amazing Cakes)

...WITH MY MOUTH.

Nomz.

 

If you have to make a cake of the Doctor's most terrifying villain, then I say, turn the Doctor into a bunny rabbit! That way the cute will even out the scary, like so:

(Also by Mike's Amazing Cakes)

Don't blink - 'cuz that bunny Who is too sweet to miss!

 

Careful, though; I think the Weeping Angel is peeking:

0.O

 

Do you believe in delicious irony?

(By Eat the Evidence)

Because eating a cakey adipose is wrong in all the right ways.

 

And not a villain at all, but check out this outstanding Ood!

(By That Little Cake Boutique for Wibbly Wobbly Cakey Bakers)

I hear his translation sphere even lights up!

 

Of course, we can't celebrate Doctor Who without the Time Lord himself:

(By Pink Cake Box)

As dashing as Eleven looks, I can't get over the open TARDIS door. WOW.

 

And here's one with homages to both Ten & Eleven:

(By Un Jeu d'Enfant)

Bow ties and fezzes and 3D glasses, oh my!

 

I love that the good Doctor is popping up in more themed weddings these days. Check out the oh-so-elegant Gallifreyan writing on this beauty:

(By Nom Nom Sweeties)

 

And here's John's favorite: an explosion of color with lots of Whovian surprises!

(By Artisan Cake Company)

I spy an adipose, an angel, and an ambushing Dalek!

 

And for the hardcore fans, let's see how much of this next one you recognize!

(By Delicious Snackies)

I see the fourth Doctor's scarf, a Time Lord's medallion, the crack in time (so cool), roses, Gallifreyan text, and I *think* that's a sonic screwdriver and the Master's pocket watch on top. WOWZA.

(Hit the link for more pics of the bottom tier; did anyone translate it yet?)

 

And finally, a gorgeous pop of classic colors and great design:

(By Cake Central member Emilsmee)

Love that bold red outlining, and the hand-painted tier of the famous Van Gogh "exploding TARDIS" is just perfect!

 

Hope you enjoyed today's Timey Wimey treats, everyone! No go forth, and be wibbly wobbly!

Friday Favs 11/21/14

(Warning: Mildly naughty stuff ahead)

Some of my favorite new submissions this week:

 

For Lori's 30th birthday her friends thought it would be cute to get her a "2nd quinceañera" cake - quinceañera being the popular Latin American celebration of a girl's 15th birthday.

Now, Lori's baker may not know how to spell "quinceañera," but darned if she isn't a wiz with Hooked on Phonics:

Go on. Read it aloud.

RIGHT??

See, now I want to call up this bakery and order something in Klingon, just to see what I get.

****

 

The trouble with naming your child Clint:

O.0

****

 

Never fear, Faith's clown hat is here!

****

 

I know it's not even Thanksgiving yet, but some bakeries are already gearing up for the most politically correct time of the year:

Peace on earth. Goodwill toward non-gender-specific beings.

 

Oh! But you know what's NOT genderless?

This soccer team's cake:

Q: What's that shooting out from the tip?

A: I dunno, but I do know this:

"He shoots, he scooooores!!"

 

Thanks to Lori B., Ryan C., Ben W., Lori M., & Amanda M. for a real blast.
