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 Goes Looking For Pooh

Happy Winnie-the-Pooh day, guys!

Yep, it's author A.A. Milne's birthday, so you know what that calls for:

(By Sugar Creations)

BEAR BUTT.

(He fell in? Aw, Pooh!)

 

And because everything's more fun with friends:

(By Marzia Caruso)

That smile on Piglet is making my whole day.

 

You know the wonderful thing about Tiggers?

(By Handi's Cakes)

Sometimes, they're made of cake!

 

The Disney version of Pooh and the gang is most popular, of course, so it's always fun to find designs based on E. H. Shepard's classic illustrations:

(By Sweet Chile Cakes by Stephanie)

That's all handpainted! Love how the balloon goes from 2D to 3D.

A shot of the other side:

 

Another classic Pooh - gotta love all those little bees!

(By Isabella's Sweet Tooth)

 

And here's an original design of the Hundred Acre Wood gang:

(By TRP Cake Studio)

SO CUTE.

 

Speaking of cute, I'd like this Pooh Bear as a fuzzy little statue for my desk, please:

(By Bake-A-Boo)

Pretty please?

 

And while you're at it, I'll take this Eeyore as a huggable plush:

(By Cake Magic)

D'awww.

 

Tigger has always been John's favorite, and he claims that if he ever gets a tattoo, it'll be of a cutie version of Tigger, like this:

(By Eat Cake Be Merry)

Just so you all know, I'm 100% behind this idea. :)

 

Not only is this next one adorable, with its teensy clothes line and pastel bunting, it also has little Roo!

(By Torte di Ivana)

See him? He's driving the train!

Woo woo! Seriously, this cute is approaching dangerous, slide-off-the-chair-as-a-puddle-of-goo levels.

 

And finally, one more of the silly old bear himself:

(By Estrele Cakes)

The background plaque, the "floating" balloon, the fence posts - I love this design! So fun and clever.

Happy Sunday, everyone, and TTFN!

Friday Favs 1/16/15

Some of my favorite new submissions this week.

 

Remember, kids, it's wrong to laugh at someone's name.

Unless it's spelled like this:

I hear he's a real gas!

(No, that's not really his name. Sorry, Dr. Goldfarb.)

(Bee tee dubs, did you know the Brits sometimes call a fart a "trouser cough?" I just felt that needed to be shared. You're welcome.)

 

Just another reminder that gender reveal cakes are a terrible idea:

I wonder how much awkward back-pedaling these mistakes have caused over the years. Like, that second celebratory back-flip better seem JUST AS HAPPY, mister. [glare]

 

Speaking of happy, a pro baker sent me this screen cap of a conversation with one of his customers, and it is, in a word, perfection:

Phew! Thank goodness she caught that.

 

You know how Mario Kart has Rainbow Road? Turns out Monster Jam has something similar:

Fecal Freeway!

(There's a "skid mark" joke in there SOMEWHERE, I just know it.)

 

This cookie cake was bare in the middle, so they asked the baker to fill in the big space with something decorative.

They got this:

Picasso, eat your heart out.

 

And finally, look, sometimes a baker gets really high, tries to eat a pillow, and then realizes she needs to hide the secret beer stash from the boss, ok? This could literally happen to anyone.

Really, the only mystery left is how that bottle is still full, amirite? Haha! You know, because drunks? In the bakery? Like, who are drunk while decorating? Am I being too subtle? No? OH GOOD.

 

Thanks to Carol B., Charmaine F., Craig B., Jill K., Stacey M., & Shari I. for helping me put the B in "subtle."
