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? ;)

A Womb With A View

Sure, torso cakes are kind of freaky, and eating cake babies can be off-putting, but what else is there for the baby shower hostess who wants to creep out her guests under the guise of serving a scrumptious treat? Is there nothing new under the Wrecky sun?

(Hah, like you don't know the answer to that.)

Presenting...the sonogram cake!

Thank you, edible image printing and 3D ultrasound imaging! Who knew two technologies could come together to create something so deliciously horrifying?

Now, don't get me wrong: I appreciate that sonograms allow moms to get an advance viewing of their little bun in the oven - I do. And most of these cakes are actually really well made, too. But let's face it: these new 3D sonograms look like they were directed by M. Night Shyamalan.

 

Look into the hollow eye sockets of this shadowy visage and tell me the truth...

...are you feeling hungry?

 

And check out the contrast on this one: it's all sweet pastel ribbons & bows, but with a doorway into the Twilight Zone:

That bear's face says it all: "What kind of filling did you use?!?"

 

Compared to these, the more traditional sonograms look positively cuddly. They still make for some Wrecktastic cakes, though:

Hmm. What do you suppose it really is, Hannah M.?

 

And if you think that airbrushing is bad, check this out:

I think that's supposed to be a side view of the mom's torso, which makes her...a headless nudist with a skin condition? Mmm, tasty.

 

And you know it didn't take long for someone to combine these two ideas:

"Hey, y'all! Come check out this black & white TV lodged in my belly!"

It's A Sweet Day For A Winter Wedding

Hey, if you can't beat the cold, celebrate it!
(Says the girl in Florida. :D)

 

Besides, sparkly ice and swirling snowflakes are PERFECT for a fairy tale wedding:

(By The Caketress)

See?

The frosted branches and glittery "snow" on each tier is so pretty and delicate!

 

This one has the tiniest touches of gold to warm up the gray:

(By Immaculate Confections)

And that shadowbox effect with the trees? GENIUS.

 

Here's another woodsy design:

(By Ambrosia Cake Creations)

I like all the white-on-white texture, and the thistle-like greenery is perfect with the mountainscapes.

 

But if you prefer something with a lot more glitz to it:

(By Delicut Cakes)

Sha-pow! GLITZ.
The flowers were inspired by British bluebells, and I'm so impressed by the filigree trim and tightly packed ruffles!

 

Now for something completely different:

(By Torta Couture)

Chocolate!! Such a dramatic backdrop for those metallic snowflakes. And I think gold, copper, and chocolate is one of my new favorite color combos.

 

More impressive snowflakes, this time cascading down the side of the cake:

(By Taarten Deco)

 

And this icy beauty has the hint of an onion-domed castle on top:

(By Nadia & Co.)

Plus check out the hand painted vignette! Mmmm. So dreamy.

 

More hand painting on one of today's most beautifully minimalistic designs:

(By Sweet Little Treat)

I am all about that blue-gray wood grain. Gah, so gorgeous!

 

You wouldn't usually think of gold and bronze for a winter cake, but wow:

(By Sugar Cane)

I like!

 

And finally, a glittering ice tower fit for Queen Elsa herself:

(By Design Cakes)

OooooOOOooooo. Perfection.

 

Hope you guys enjoyed! Happy Sunday, and stay warm out there!
