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: Christmas Glee

Does all the holiday prep ever leave you feeling a little...

...flat?

(By Kricky Cakes and Airbrush, Hungary)

 

Don't worry!
We have some ideas to perk you right up.

Let's start by hugging this well-dressed reindeer.
And maybe nibbling on his antlers.

(By Creme and Fondant, Germany)

Instant endorphins and a sugar rush!

 

How about a catnap?

(By Fiorella Balzamo, Italy)

Although, technically, I guess this is a mousenap.

 

You can let these two finish up your baking.

(By CakeHeaven by Marlene, Malta)

(I hear they need a taste tester.)

 

Perhaps it's time to start daydreaming about that post-holiday vacation?

(By Magical Cakes, New Zealand)

Don't forget your sunblock, Santa!

 

Have you tried to recruit some woodland creatures to mail your Christmas cards?

(By Aurelia's Cake, Scotland)

Well, maybe you should.

 

You could save a lot of energy if you just skipped the laundry and ran around naked.
What? You're too shy?

Well, start with this naked cake.

(By Viva la Tarta, Spain)

It's one of the prettiest I've seen.

 

If you really need to veg out, you could play with this snow globe.

(By Cake That Designs, United Kingdom)

Snowy fun without the frostbite!

 

If all else fails, just stare out the window for a while.

(By Made with Love, England)

Maybe you'll see something that inspires you.

 

Just remember to take care of yourself,
and I'm sure you'll be ready for these guys in no time.

(By Nasa Mala Zavrzlama, Serbia)

 

Whatever you do, we hope your holidays are Sweet!

Sunday Sweets: Gingerbread Bliss

There's something so approachable about gingerbread houses:

(By SpiceCakeHouse, Russia)

You see a gorgeous one like this, and think to yourself, "Y'know, with just a little more training, patience, artistic ability, time, and talent, I could make that."

Then you laugh and laugh, and keep scrolling through all the jaw-dropping Sunday Sweets that few of us mere mortals could ever hope to match.

Wise choice.

(By Brennie's Cake House The Netherlands)

Isn't this a hoot?
(Yes, I went there.)

 

Of course every baker has a different take on "gingerbread house."

There's the traditional snow covered house:

(By Elena Bondarenko, Russia)

 

Or there's a sandy beach hut for our friends in warmer climates/hemispheres:

(By Catherine Beddall Edible Art, Canada)

(It's just waiting for Sandy Claus.)

 

A sweet flower-bedecked cottage:

(By Olesia Gul, Turkey)

 

And the flowers could have come from this clever greenhouse:

(By Silverodlan, Sweden)

The gelatin sheet windows are genius.

 

Or how about a totally different kind of green house?

(Find the step-by-step tutorial here, by Sugar and Cloth, Texas)

Now we're rolling.

 

Or we could go to London; a book I read said this place is there somewhere:

(By Haniela's, Pennsylvania)

Can somebody please help me find it?

Seriously. I need to talk to the owls about a letter they misplaced.
And because they're adorable.

 

I know, let's ask Alice:

(By Petite Fille by Sai)

She's always finding wonderful places.

 

And since a lot of Alice's adventures were dreams, let's end with this gravity-defying "dream house."

(By Cakes by Beatriz, Canada)

Wow. The longer I stare, the more incredible details I see. The grass! The window etchings! And I'm pretty sure that second floor is straight-up floating.

So who's ready to make a gingerbread house now? Or maybe just eat some cookies? (WISE CHOICE.)

Happy Sunday, everyone! I hope it's extra Sweet.
