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 To MARVEL Over

Have you guys seen Deadpool yet? I haven't, though it looks hilarious. Be honest, though; does anyone else find it ironic that "The Merc With A Mouth" wears a costume... with no mouth?

(By Pinar Aran Cake Design)

Poor Deady, can't even eat his own cake.

That's the last Deep Thought for today, though. Because if there's one thing we've learned from superheroes, it's that you should never dwell too long on the logic behind their costumes.

So instead, we'll just dwell on the awesomeness of these Marvel cakes!

(And also the smoothness of my segues. Eh??)

 

Iron Man:

(By Cakes By Susan)

Oooh, those overlapping "metal" plates are positively... riveting.

:D

 

Black Widow:

(By Nerdache Cakes)

That moment when a cake has better hair than you.

 

Here's one you don't see as often:

Punisher:

(By Whipped Up By Mimi)

LOVE this monochromatic look, and it really looks like an art canvas on cake! Gorgeous.

 

Thor:

(By Don Buciak)

And speaking of art, that's all buttercream, y'all. No fondant!
I've said it before and I'll say it again: Don Buciak is DA MAN.

 

Here's one of the best superhero combo cakes I've seen:

(By With Love And Confection)

The feathers on Thor's helmet are soooo good, and check out the "flying" bricks from Hulk's punch!

 

Agent Carter:

(By The Butter End)

More amazing head gear; it's hard to believe Peggy's iconic red hat here is actually cake!

 

And one for Peggy's ex -

Captain America:

(By Daatjes Taarten)

I like the old school comic look.

 

Here's another guy you don't see too often:

Ghost Rider:

(By Sugar Inspired)

HOT.

 

Venom:

(By Traci Martin)

That's one cake that looks like it bites back!

 

And finally, a Marvel mash-up with a brilliant use of edible photo paper:

(By Saving With Sarah)

I especially like how she used the 3D "exploding" brickwork in the middle to give it more dimension. Super cool!

 

Happy Sunday, everyone!
