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: Cute Baby Cakes

You know what's even cuter than animal and character cakes? Baby animal and character cakes.

(By Dolci Arte in St. Petersburg)

Like little Tinkerbell!

So cute, you could just eat her up, am I right?

(You know, even when talking about a cake, that still sounds creepy. LESSON LEARNED.)

 

Look at this shaggy lil' koala:

(By Shierlly Bei in Jakarta, Indonesia)

Who else wants to pet a cake right now?

 

Frog with a balloon, you guys. FROG... WITH A BALLOON:

(By Moli Cakes in Slovakia)

D'awwwwwww.

 

I love the colors on this one:

(By Erin Salerno in Wisconsin)

Plus baby tigers are always a win.

 

Years ago I fell in love with this painting of baby Chewbacca by ReevolveR:

I mean. C'mon.

 

But then someone made a cake version!

(By Cake Central user MrsBriggs06)

I'm really hoping those are marshmallows in his bandolier.

 

Or how about a 'dorable dinosaur?

(By Moli Cakes in Slovakia)

I can't decide which is more impressive: the sculpted baby or the handpainted mama on the bottom!

 

This one goes out to everyone feeling a little bit... prickly:

(By Leslie Vigil in California)

Baby hedgehog cake! Love love love.

 

Just when you thought it couldn't get any better than a fluffy llama, you find one in a poofy pompom harness:

(By Karen Paddila Cakes in San Juan)

It's just so happy.

 

And finally, amping up the cute meter ever further, we have this cuddle of teddy bears:

(Baker unknown, anyone recognize it?)

The light-up ball on top makes it so magical!

 

Hope you guys enjoyed! Happy Sunday!

Disenchantment Under The Sea

I'm telling you, things just haven't been the same here since Ariel opted for a water delivery!

 

♫ A sea birth ain't always keener

Sometimes it's a big mistake.

 

There's stuff you just can't unsee there

It even upset the hake.

 

Just look at the fish around you

She freaked 'em out by the score!

 

The squid even lost an eye now -

"Don't want it anymore."

 

Under the sea!

[Oh my, Dory!]

 

What did we see?

[Under the sea!]

 

Childbirth ain't better,

just 'cause it's wetter

Take it from me!

Up on the shore it works OK.
Just let the doctors earn their pay!

'Cause if we're voting

 "It was revolting!"


Under the sea! ♫


[plop!]

 

Thanks to Carolann, Elizabeth G., Tiffany G., Nicole & Koren S., Angela G., Amy R., Trish L., Pon T., Chris, and James N., for not watering down their labors of love. (And, yes, the octopus is very well done... which is probably why it's creeping me out so much.)

Editor's note: Before you ask, no, we're not dissing water births. But we’re betting it really freaked out the fish…
