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 Springs In

It's officially Spring!!

Which, I know, doesn't mean much when you're still buried in snow or already rockin' the flip-flops.
(GUILTY.)

Still, Spring means flowers and happy colors, so today, that's what you get. And you're gonna like it.

(By Suzanne Kleinsman, aka The Queen of Pops)

SHA-POW.

See? Happy cake.

 

(By Mutlu Gün Kurabiyecisi)

And BOOYA, sweet mini florals for an engagement cake!

 

Tell me you're not smiling, 'cuz I've got more.

(By Kiara's Cakes)

Like this! Something about that color combo equals instant eye candy for me.

 

Of course Spring is all about gettin' down and dirty, so brace yourself:

(By House of Cakes Dubai)

SO DIRTY. And gorgeous. And kinda cute, if you like snails.

 

Here comes another natural beauty who's all bark and lots of bites:

(By Sweetness)

Phenomenal Fondant Powers, look at these textures! This is one that must be bitten to be believed; I've never seen a better tree bark OR more delicate ruffles.

 

Speaking of double-takes, here's another one that fooled me:

(By McGreevey Cakes)

The pitcher is cake, if you can believe it - I'm still not sure I do! What I do know is I'm in love.

 

Here's a fun modern take in bright pinks and yellows:

(By Kakes By Karen)

It's so Springy, right? And look at that embroidery texture! Incredible!

 

Now my favorite color, with my favorite flowers:

(By Torta Nicoletta)

Orange + Poppies = Pure Jen Joy.

 

Or how about a wheel barrow bouquet?

(By Golumbevskaya Olesya)

That's all sugar paste work, with a cake barrow!

 

Let's wrap things up with one more bold and bright number - and I freely admit I'm playing favorites:

(By Lumipo)

MORE POPPIES! Woot woot! And how fun is that green "barn-wood"? (The topper is two hearts with a padlock and chain between them.) My favorite is the hand-painting, though, inspired by the art of Colleen Parker. So good.

Hope this made your Sunday a little more Springy, peeps, and a lot more happy!

Friday Favs 3/24

Today's post is dedicated to the American Hero who added a bottle of Jack Daniel's to this display:

Bless you, sir/madam. Bless you.

 

Um...

Please tell me I'm not the only one who immediately saw this:

Just me?

 

Bakers, I imagine parenthood is tough enough. You really shouldn't go adding to the stress level with Prom goofs like this:

0.o
Please tell me this was delivered to her house.

 

Also, bakers, 'fess up: which one of you decided chocolate icing was a good call here?

 

Which brings me to the headline of the week:

A cake decorator with "no construction experience" building a sewage plant? CLEARLY this reporter has never read Cake Wrecks:

 

 

Cake decorators get all KINDS of experience constructing sewage plants.

 

Though I'm guessing/hoping these ones smell better.

 

"Howdy, doody."
