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: Beauty And The Best Cakes

It's opening weekend for the new live-action Beauty and the Beast movie, so guess what I've got for you today!

That's right, cakes from the animated version!

(By Sugar & Spice)

Woot woot!

 

Don't get me wrong, peeps, Emma Watson is amazing. Nothin' but love there. However, CGI furniture-people just can't compete with this adorableness:

(By Zoe's Fancy Cakes)

Right? And like Cogsworth says, "If it's not Baroque, don't fix it."

 

Don't worry, though; you can still love the new movie. I've decided to allow it. ;)

In fact, I even have cakes that work for either version:

(By Flying Bat Beaver)

Like this prettiness inspired by Belle's dress!

 

Or how about this "glass dome" over the famous rose?

SO COOL.

And look at the other side!

EEEEE!!

 

Here's another beauty based on Belle's dress:

(By Sylvia Castaneda)

Talk about swag! I think this is my favorite today: sweet, simple perfection.

 

Although this little Chip and Mrs. Potts are charming to a tea:

(By Fatto di Zucchero)

 

Anyone out there love The Enchanted Christmas?

(By Giada's Cakes)

D'aww. Beast's expression is everything here. And I'm digging those snowy pine cones at the bottom.

 

Now here's a cake that really shines:

(By It's All About The Cake)

Tell me you don't want to steal that rose topper. And Mrs. Potts. And Chip. And the whole cake.

 

Of course we can't have Beauty and the Beast Sweets without an epic wedding cake, so...

(By Walt Disney World Resorts)

BEHOLD!

Those metallic gold drapes are blowing my mind. And the soft damask pattern is just right.

 

Now one more castle cake, this time with more stunning stained glass:

(By Karen Anne Cakes)

Now that's a beauty.

Happy Sunday, everyone! Be sure to tell me what you thought of the new movie in the comments, if you've seen it; I'm still debating braving the opening week crowds!

AND DON'T CALL HIM "PATTY"

Today we come together as a nation to celebrate St. Patrick's Day in the most thoughtful, respectful manner possible...

...while insinuating Irish people are a bunch of drunk leprechauns.

 

As a person of Irish heritage myself, I'm actually more disturbed by whatever's happening here:

Whatever it is, it is WAY too happy to see you.

 

Or here:

[Monty Python voice]: PLAGUE.

 

Or the fact that green plastic hats somehow make any cake St. Patrick's Day appropriate:

Sláinte.

 

So whether you get your rocks off with that whole kissing thing:

Never to be taken for granite.

 

Or by asking bakers if they happen to have 6 fingers on their right hand:

INCONCEIVABLE.

 

Here's hoping you have a delightful St. Patrick's Day, minions.

Now, go enjoy one of these traditional Irish treats:

...while Internet commenters everywhere give their yearly speech on how "St. Patrick wasn't even Irish."

Ahhh, holidays.

 

Thanks to Annie & Matt, Abbey R., Tracie F., Anne B., Andrew M., Bekka N., Molly S., & Interweb mansplainers everywhere for the inspiration to drink more.
