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? ;)

Mmm hmm mm mmm

 

And now I know...

 

The key to all heaven

Mmm hmm mm mmm
Mmm hmm mm mmm

So this... is... love!

Sunday Sweets: 12 Cakes To Make You Feel Like A Kid Again

Cakes were pretty simple back when we thirty-somethings were kids - which is why my inner 6-year-old is so jealous right now:

(By Patisserie Jaja)

Smurfette!

 

And check out this gorgeous hand painted Strawberry Shortcake:

(By The Painted Box)

I love that they used the original Strawberry Shortcake, not the new rebooted style.

 

Anyone remember this guy?

(By Studio Cake)

Careful; if not, you could make him very angry.

 

All together, now:

(By Tortystka)

Piiiigs innnn Spaaaaaaace!

It makes me so happy that this exists.

 

Depending on how old you are, these next ones will either make you squeal in delight or look completely baffled:

(By Sugar Rush Custom Cookies)

Hollie Hobbie! She was a little before my time, but I remember the wooden plaques with her picture on it still hanging in some of my friends' rooms.

Those are handpainted cookies, by the way, and if you look close you can see they're bas relief - aka slightly 3D!

 

Thanks to Toy Story this classic has made quite the comeback:

(By Karolina Cake Designer)

Mr. Potato Head! Such a fun design with the number for his nose, too.

 

Scooby Doo! WHERE ARE... oh. There you are:

(By Mladman Cakes)

Look at the flying bats! And the fun spooky trees and haunted house! SO GOOD.

 

Now, are you ready for some glamour and glitter, fashion and fame?

(By Faithfully Cakes)

'Cuz this Jem cake is truly outrageous.

 

Now, when I say "Whoa," I mean "WHOA!"

(By Ennas' Cake Design)

This Yosemite Sam has the root'nest, toot'nest cake in the West!

 

But it's these sweet little Care Bears that really made me melt:

(By Sweet Little Treat)

More perfect hand painting! Ah! SO SWEET.

I tell ya, this post is going to drive me to hunting down all my old toys on Ebay, just you watch.
(Remember the little pose-able PVC bears? Loved those.)

 

And now, everyone's favorite two comic strip characters:

(By The Caking Girl)

Anyone tearing up just a little? No? Just me?

That combination of hand painting and 3D sculpting is brilliant, by the way. Brilliant.

 

And finally, the Mouse who defined so many of our childhoods:

(By Svetlana Petrova)

Mickey!

Really digging this design, with the little paint cans and splatters, and I'm head over heels for the color palette, too!

 

Hope this brought a smile to your Sunday, guys! Now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to browse the vintage toy section on ebay...
