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? ;)

Fantastic Sweets (and How to Find Them)

Newt Scamander gets a lot of attention for his fantastic beasts, but he's not the only one with a collection.

We've pulled together a great assortment of beastiness for you today.

But enough chit-chat. Let's get...


(By Glavgnom, in Moscow, Russia.)

Just don't let the Kraken get you.


If it did, maybe this gorgeous mermaid would come to your rescue.

(By Clairella Cakes, Essex, United Kingdom)

I love how her tail comes out of the cake.


If she's busy putting sunblock on her tail, maybe you could catch a ride on this sea dragon.

(By Whimsy Cakes by Dee, Yelm, Washington, USA)

He could poke the Kraken with those beautiful horns.


Oh, you say you'd prefer an air rescue? Then let's go with the more traditional, ferocious, flying variety of dragon.

(By Art2Eat Cakes, Boulder, Colorado, USA)

Sure he's ferocious. He was offered as a Craftsy sculpture class with the tagline:

"Do You Wanna Build A Dragon? He's gonna melt your Snowman..."

That's hardcore.


OK, fine. Do you think a thestrel would intimidate the Kraken more?

(By lovin' from the oven, Galway, Ireland)

He's made of chocolate, so the ride would smell heavenly.


Great. Now you're safe on land.

Watch out for the zombie Yetis.

(By Sweet KOKEKO, Mexico City, Mexico)

Personally, I think they should have to disclose these guys in those "Visit Tibet" ads.


Oh, and did I mention there's been a Minotaur sighting?

(By Cakes 'n' Crumbs, hima's creations, Bangalore, India)


I think he was visiting the werewolf.

(By The Cake Nook, Durham, England)

Hey, it's OK. The next full moon isn't until the 23rd.

Maybe, just to be on the safe side, you should call for a ride.


Better yet, call for a unicorn.

(By Caked by Cynthia White, South Florida, USA)


She'll make sure you get home safe and sound, tucked into your own comfy bed.


(By Man Bakes Cake, Astoria, New York, USA)

Just don't look under it, OK?

Actually, don't worry. I've been assured all the creatures above are sweet.

Sunday Sweet.

Have a lovely Sunday, everyone!

Hey, Mickey, You're So UGLY

Happy Fancy Rat and Mouse Day from the fanciest rat mouse of them all, Mickey Mouse!


Let's try that again.


Mickey Mouse, everybody!!



Mickey Mouse!

[furious muffled whispering]
[loud clatter]
[cat yowl]



Mickey... Mouse?

Oh, boy.


[head in hands]


Close enough.
