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: Your Favorite Phone Games!

Our phones have come a long way, my friends.

Almost as far as today's cake art!

(By Zoe Clark Cakes)

Who wants a slice of rotary-dial deliciousness?


Of course, these days our phones look more like this:

(By Celebrate With Cake)

We've also passed the point of using our phones for actual phone calls, and I for one couldn't be happier. After all, what higher calling [snerk] could there be for a phone than super-addictive PHONE GAMES?


Give a yell if you see your favorite! (I won't hear you, but it should liven up the experience on your end.)

(By Viorica's Cakes)

Ahh, Candy Crush, you sweet, soul-sucking time waster. How I love thee. But I think I may love this cake even more. The little candies! The swirly lollipops!


Oooh, or there's this one:

(By Leesin & Ween of Sugar)

That peppermint swirl trim is killing me with cute.


Here's another angle:

More swirly goodness - and teensy bunting! Ah!


Now for a game as frustrating as Candy Crush is colorful:

(By Small Town Girl Bakery)


Love how the background and cake board really make the whole design. Such a great way to add more "oomph!"

Also, would you believe John is actually really good at this game? I think he does it just to annoy me; I've never gotten past the second pipe. >.<


An oldie but a cutie:

Where's My Water!

Those rubber duckies are the stuff that squees are made of.


And another cutie-pie puzzle game:

(By Rosebud Cakes)

Who remembers Cut The Rope?


And one more, because I never knew a sugar box cutter could be this delightful:

(By Le Leccornie di Danita)


Here's another personal favorite:

(By Bohemia Cakes)

Plants vs Zombies! This cake is a perfect recreation of the game board, too. Why, I can almost hear the zombies' heads popping off. (Which is surprisingly adorable, btw.)


PvZ cakes have some of the best figure sculpting around. I want all of these:

(By Eunice Cake Designs)

Especially the Pea Shooters and grumpy Squash!


It turns out there's a Disney Tsum Tsum ios game, too, which is awesome, because now I can post this!

(By Guilt Desserts)

Dibs on the Donald!

(For you non-DizGeeks; Tsum Tsums are little plush dolls that look just like that.)

(And if you're a Donald lover, too, then check out my friend Darla's Donald cupcakes. Sooooo cuuuuute.)


Not technically a cake, but check out this incredible arrangement of oh-so-perfect Tsum Tsum macarons!

(By Le Sucre Du Patisserie)

I know we're always saying how we could never slice into the cakes on Sweets, but seriously. I could never eat these. I think I'd just coat them in epoxy and use them for decorations. Especially Tigger and Piglet.


And finally, the phone game to rule them all:

(By Jane Zubova, who has more geektastic gems featured here)

Angry Birds!

There are hundreds of gorgeous Angry Birds cakes out there, but this one wins the brass ring for sheer scale and creativity. Those pig carts on the back wall are blowing my mind! And look at all the tiny cakes and treats on the castle walls! Ah! SO GOOD.


Happy Sunday, everyone!

LOVE the plant vs zombies cakes :D

Love Plants vs. Zombies! They do have PVC figures, but they're hard to find. The Yeti Zombie is my favorite!

That last cake is more Bad Piggies than actual Angry Birds (I didn't spot any birds; if I'm wrong, please let me know, as I wasn't wearing my glasses), but since the former is a spinoff of the latter, it's all good. But it's cake, and cake is always good!

While I think the cakes are beautiful, and Piglet and Tigger are too adorable, the only game I actually recognized was Plants V. Zombies.
What is wrong with me? Ahh, nothing. I just can't get used to not using a phone to actually make phone calls. Perhaps they shouldn't be called phones anymore, but "personal amusement devices" instead.

August 30, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterNot a Part of it all

I'm with Roxy Random. The last cake is Bad Piggies, not Angry Birds. I asked my 6yo. He's the expert! The carts are the give away and no birds...

I am slightly terrified at what cake wrecks these beauties could inspire. Because I can definitely see someone bringing in this post to a bakery and saying, "I want THIS one! Make me one just like it."

Shelley beat me to it - my 6-year-old grandson is a Bad Piggies (and Minecraft) expert.

All these cakes look amazing. Thanks for uploading, for it was a great post that I enjoyed whilst being in hospital. 😊😊😊

The Disney sum Tsum game was my summer addiction. I found the game last time you mentioned them, not realizing it was the *toys* you were referencing! Great pics this week!

August 30, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterEmily

Jen, I jumped over to look at more of the Zubova creations, and BAM! they clobbered me in the senses. What a masterful cake artist she is. Each one is more amazing than the last. My favorite one is the "Frozen" cake - outstanding! I am only a pseudo geek, so I don't always recognize the sources, but I did okay on her page, except for the second one: with the dinosaurs and the big tree and six little people watching. What is that one from? It's really cool, but I don't know the reference. Thanks.

BTW, all the cakes today are beautiful, fantastic and quirky. Who knew that phone games would be a great subject for cake themes? Brilliant!

Wait, what? These are CAKES?! Wowie wow! The rotary dial phone - that's a cake?! It looks like you could pick up the receiver and dial your number! These are amazing!

August 31, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterChicago

I love the little guy from Cut the Rope. (Never actually played it, though)

Plants vs. Zombies cakes are wonderful, especially the 1st one!
