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: Flights of Fancy

Today, we're going to talk about the birds...

(By Viva la Tarta)


...and the bees.

(By Dlishcupcakes)


That's right! We're talking about Things that Fly!

(You look relieved. Why? What else would we talk about?)

There are kites:

(By Sweet Treats by Sandra)


...balloons in bunches:

(By Mutlu Dukkan)


...or filled with hot air:

(By K Noelle Cakes)


...and airplanes!

(by Gateau Delice)


Sometimes all at the same time:

(By That Baking Girl)

I'd make a kite/balloon/airplane joke here, but I think it'd go over your head.


Let's see, what else?

There are dragonflies:

...and dragons that fly:

(By La Torta Perfetta)

...which means they have to land somewhere.


Don't ever believe pigs can't fly.

(By Carlos Lischetti Sugar Art)

Heck, with enough thrust (or pixie dust) anything can fly.


All the way out of this world!

(By Cakey Cake)


In fact, if I could fly...

(By Alchemists of Cake)

...I think I'd Never Land.

Wouldn't that be Sweet?


Happy Sunday, everyone!

Some of my favorite new submissions this week:


It was Talk Like A Pirate Day this week, but I think this bakery could have used less talking and more map-drawing:

When in doubt, add more arrows.


Julie asked for "boyish colors and decorations."

So you saw it here first, folks: Clown poop is officially "boyish."
And a "decoration."


Every time I complain about an insane icing-to-cake ratio, the pro-icing peeps come out of the woodwork, exclaiming that no amount of icing is TOO much icing.

Aiiight, you pro-icing-ers, consider this the gauntlet being thrown:

Is THIS enough icing for ya?


Kasey asked for a cake that said "Happy Birthday," and then in parentheses, "Mulan was here."

You'd think the parentheses curve-ball would trip them up, but no, that was the one thing they really nailed:

There's just nothing in it.


They say it's officially Fall.
I don't believe it.
They say Pumpkin Spice makes everything better.
I don't believe it.
They say this is a pumpkin:

[head tilt]

Eh, seems about right.


Thanks to S.E., Julie A., Kristina J., Kasey R., & Sarah C. for agreeing with me that Pumpkin Spice Oreos is the line, and that line HAS BEEN CROSSED TOO FAR.
