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 Springs In

It's officially Spring!!

Which, I know, doesn't mean much when you're still buried in snow or already rockin' the flip-flops.
(GUILTY.)

Still, Spring means flowers and happy colors, so today, that's what you get. And you're gonna like it.

(By Suzanne Kleinsman, aka The Queen of Pops)

SHA-POW.

See? Happy cake.

 

(By Mutlu Gün Kurabiyecisi)

And BOOYA, sweet mini florals for an engagement cake!

 

Tell me you're not smiling, 'cuz I've got more.

(By Kiara's Cakes)

Like this! Something about that color combo equals instant eye candy for me.

 

Of course Spring is all about gettin' down and dirty, so brace yourself:

(By House of Cakes Dubai)

SO DIRTY. And gorgeous. And kinda cute, if you like snails.

 

Here comes another natural beauty who's all bark and lots of bites:

(By Sweetness)

Phenomenal Fondant Powers, look at these textures! This is one that must be bitten to be believed; I've never seen a better tree bark OR more delicate ruffles.

 

Speaking of double-takes, here's another one that fooled me:

(By McGreevey Cakes)

The pitcher is cake, if you can believe it - I'm still not sure I do! What I do know is I'm in love.

 

Here's a fun modern take in bright pinks and yellows:

(By Kakes By Karen)

It's so Springy, right? And look at that embroidery texture! Incredible!

 

Now my favorite color, with my favorite flowers:

(By Torta Nicoletta)

Orange + Poppies = Pure Jen Joy.

 

Or how about a wheel barrow bouquet?

(By Golumbevskaya Olesya)

That's all sugar paste work, with a cake barrow!

 

Let's wrap things up with one more bold and bright number - and I freely admit I'm playing favorites:

(By Lumipo)

MORE POPPIES! Woot woot! And how fun is that green "barn-wood"? (The topper is two hearts with a padlock and chain between them.) My favorite is the hand-painting, though, inspired by the art of Colleen Parker. So good.

Hope this made your Sunday a little more Springy, peeps, and a lot more happy!

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!

(By Koalipops, video here)

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!
