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 ROCKS

Cake lovers, ARE YOU READY TO ROCK?!

'Cuz today we're getting all the bands back together... in cake form.

And by "all the bands" I mean some of the bands that happen to have amazing tribute cakes.

So hold those lighters high, my friends - in case some of these come with candles.

 

The Rolling Stones:

(By Sugar Rush Cakes)

You CAN get satisfaction, provided the birthday girl shares.

 

Pink Floyd:

(By Yummies)

We don't need no thought control... but we *could* use another slice, thanks.

 

Bjork:

(By Un Jeu d'Enfant)

John tells me I can't include Bjork in this list because she's not classic rock, but I like the cake, John, so there.

 

For the fan who can't choose just ONE group:

(By Gian Paolo Panizzolo)

 

Also not classic rock, but ABBA's still a classic in my book:

(By The Designer Cake Company)

♪ Young and sweet, only buttercream! ♫

(Eh? EH??)
(Of course, this cake is also fondant, so that's really messing with my rhyme.)

 

Bon Jovi:

(By Pink Cake Box)

I'm all about that hair. :D

 

The Beatles:

(By Marzia Caruso Cake Design)

I bet this took more than a hard day's night.

 

Guns N' Roses:

(By Kupkake Tree)

And this one took plenty of patience.

 

AC/DC:

(By Just for the Cake of It)

And this? This took the baker all night long.
:D

 

Kiss:

(By Elisabeth Palatiello)

Sure to make you smile all night and party every day!

 

And last but never least:

David Bowie:

(By Laura Ally)

Sweet Ziggy Stardust, you will be missed.

(Though to me, you'll always be the Goblin King who makes the world fall down.)

 

Happy Sunday, everybody!

I love all of these! I especially love that adults can have fun cakes too!

Shedding a silent tear over that last cake. He will be missed, indeed.

David Bowie's probably freaking the crap out of God right now. RIP

January 17, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterTheCreepyTribble

Still sad about Bowie...

January 17, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterSheila

That Beatles cake is FAB!

January 17, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterLee

Yep.. Goblin King for me, too. His passing made part of the world fall down. It's such a shame some of the best (and nicest) people are leaving us.

January 17, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterVesi

Wow, that David Bowie cake is amazing - especially the hair!!

Love these cakes! Beatles cake baker did a terrific job on the likenesses.

Birthday boy Ethan probably understands AC/DC's lyrics as a thirteen-year-old in the Internet Era better than I would have when I was thirteen in the Pleistocene Era. Although I did dream of "American thighs" then...

What, no Cake cake?

January 17, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterSuBee

Two Guns and Roses and NO Grateful Dead? A quick image search of Grateful Dead cakes yielded some really nice ones (and some wrecks)

January 17, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterJoJo

All gorgeous. Especially that Bowie cake.

January 17, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterAmy H.

Yes, the Goblin King. He was creepily beautiful and magnetic. Virtual hugs to Iman.

January 17, 2016 | Unregistered Commenterdoodlebug

Beautiful and excellent cake works of art . Rock on !!!!!!!!!!!

CakeWrocks!

Björk. An underutilized cake topper.

January 17, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterBrooke

The ACDC cake is even more awesome when you realize it was for a thirteen year old. THAT kid is going places.

January 17, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterTheCreepyTribble

Kurt Cobain would be spinning in his grave if he saw that Nirvana and Guns 'n Roses were sharing space on the same cake.

January 17, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterDave

My sister made the Bowie cake! I've seen it in person and it's seriously awesome. So much skill.

January 17, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterAmy C

Are the disco ball & tambourine edible?!

January 17, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterRJ

I love the ABBA cake! Can't say the same about the Bon Jovi one, though. Who would want to eat the piece with chest hair? Bleh.

January 17, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterKerrikoala

Oh my was so Fab and Groove my favorite S.S Post till now Jenn, As a Beatle fan i'm not able to eat the Beatles cake my lord is a sin. So sad that anyone thought in a Jefferson Airplane Cake you know with a white rabbit with pills in his hands: One Want makes you larger and the one makes you small but the whole cake is a trip.

January 18, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterEly

These are all fantastic....except I get a Minion vibe from Bon Jovi. Is it just me?

January 18, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterCarly

Now we've lost Glenn Frey too; 2016 officially stinks!

These cakes are amazing, by the way.

January 20, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterZippy

Yay! Kiss and ABBA cakes, If a combination tribute band ever needed to be created it would cover Kiss and ABBA songs and combine both of the fashion styles. They would be called ABBA-Kiss.
Perhaps they could even have a background cameo if there is another made-for-TV Kiss movie: former Kiss members Vinnie Vincent and the original cat-man team up with Bjork and Lady GaGa to collect tribute bands to power some nefarious Kiss-army related machine beneath the haunted roller disco? Maybe the ghost of Ziggy Stardust could give sage advice in the form of a rock anthem.
Dain it SyFy channel, stop making shark and zombie drivel and give me a movie I want to see!!!
