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? ;)

Winter Blunderland

Those bell things

Are they listing?

 

Yellow snow

Stomach's twisting

 

Unusual sight

He's happy tonight

Gawking in a winter blunderland.

 

Gone awaaay
is the bluebird

In his plaaace
is a reinturd

 

My feeling is strong

That this is all wrong

Gawking in a winter blunderland.

 

This is really quite the bug-eyed snowman!

I'd just rather not see him around

 

He'll say, "Won't you buy me?"
I'll say, "No, man!"

"You've even got the penguins feeling down!"

 

We should kiiill
this with fire

 

I think thiiis
is expired

 

The way Rudy's splayed:

He may need first aid.

11 Gingerbread Houses To Make You Drool

Buckle up, Sweets fans, 'cuz I'm about to show you the best gingerbread house creations in all of the interwebz - and you're going to want all of them.

(By Goodies By Anna)

Sugar glass windows, candy cane porch pillars, and teeny-tiny chocolate sunflower seed flowers. These are the things dream homes are made of, my friends.

 

Or maybe you're more of an urban high-rise type?

(Baker unknown)

FACT: Baby deer make the best doormen.

 

Or how about a spin on the open seas?

(Baker unknown)

In my mind, of course, the seas are made up of hot cocoa. MMMMM.

 

I've seen a couple of cookie vignettes before, but this one just blows me away:

(By Jeziba)

Look at that picture-perfect piping! And I love - LOVE - the tea light cut-out in the middle. Makes for such a gorgeous display.

 

Of course I had to include the gingerbread bakery, now, didn't I?

(Also by Goodies By Anna)

Check out the goodies in the windows! And the roof cresting on top is STUNNING. I assume it's made with royal icing, but to get it all installed without cracking? That's gotta be insanely hard.

 

Ok, time for a geeky side trip:

(By Debbie Ruff)

... to Hobbiton! (It's all about that round green door, am I right? Although I'm also loving the snow-covered trees.)

 

I am completely enamored with these colors...

(By Paradox Pastry)

 ...and that swirly chimney "smoke."

 

This gingerbread cottage looks straight out of Disney's Fantasyland:

(By Mary E. Found here)

Love.

 

See, now, I want to live in that cottage, but I want this one on my desk so I can stare at it all day:

(By Sassy Beautimus)

... right after I finish eating the roof.

 

And my very VERY favorite of hers:

(Also by Sassy Beautimus)

The girly squees are strong with this one.

Seriously, pastel rainbows and gingerbread brown are a match made in heaven.

 

And finally, the perfect traditional gingerbread house, with a heaping side of cozy goodness:

(Baker unknown. Anyone know?)

COZY GOODNESS, YOU GUYS.

So, who else is off to buy a gingerbread house kit now? :)
