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? ;)

Was One Of The 10 Things "Cake Wrecks"?

Madeline writes:

Well sure, but in the bakery's defense, we don't know what was on Madeline's list.

I mean, maybe it looked like this:

Things Sunshine Likes:

1) Sadness
2) Plastic
3) Clashing Colors
4) Writing With Her Feet
5) Staring Into The Abyss
6) Disproportionate Sizes
7) Rough Plaster Walls
8) Ransom Notes
9) Being Forgotten Until The Last Possible Second
10) Balloons

See, if THAT was the list then you've gotta admit: BANG ON.

 

Thanks to Madeline & Sunshine, who I hope finally gets a giggle out of her sweet sixteen tragedy.

Sunday Sweets Goes FULL UNICORN

Have you noticed unicorns and rainbows are all the rage again lately? There are unicorn cafes, unicorn drinks - heck, I even spotted a unicorn grilled cheese. o.0

Isn't enough enough?

The answer, of course, is no.

NO AMOUNT OF UNICORNS IS EVER ENOUGH.

(By I love Cakes by Sheila)

Squeeee!

 

Yes, this Lisa Frank-loving woman-child is jumping on the technicolor bandwagon today, peeps, because look at these unicorn macarons:

(By Mac Lab Bakery & Cafe)

They have Fruity Pebble manes! Ahhh!

 

And look at this watercolor drip deliciousness:

(By Truly Scrumptious Cakes By Design)

Pastel rainbow heaven!

 

You know that thing where someone takes one awesome thing and mashes it together with another awesome thing?

Well, I give you:

(By Vickie Liu)

Unicorn Ice Cream Cone Cookies.

 

Or how about these sweet little cake pops?

(By Just Add Sugar)

The little rosy cheeks! Ah!

 

A lot of so-called Unicorn treats are really just rainbow-colored food, and while I will never complain about rainbow-colored food, I do like that this Sweetness at least has a twisty unicorn horn on top:

Those rainbow tiers are perfection! And do I spy cotton candy? OooOOOoooh.

 

Who else suddenly wants to nuzzle a cupcake?

(By Lady Berry Cupcakes)

 

Now, I'm not saying these donuts really look like unicorns, but they're so stinkin' cute I think we can agree they score a Hole-In-One.

(By Christina's Cupcakes)

Get it? A hole in one? AAAAAI'll stop now.

 

I've never really been onboard with "naked" cakes... until now:

(Featured here, but the baker isn't listed. Anyone know?)

D'awww. If ever a cake deserved to be naked, it's this one.

 

And finally, let's end with the cake that turned me into a starry-eyed six-year-old again:

(By With Love And Confection)

It has meringue wings! And a mermaid crown! EEEEE!!!

Happy Sunday, everyone! May your week be as magical - and as colorful - as these unicorns!
