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? ;)

10 Magical Unicorn Cakes For June-icorn

Unicorns! Rainbows! Sparkles!

Oh yeah, you're gonna like today's Sweets, gang.

Starting with this:

(By Arte da Ka in Brazil)

Perfect pastels and the shiniest unicorn horn I've ever seen.

 

(By Pim's Bakery in Thailand)

This little cutie has me making grabby hands at the screen. You know what's better than a cherry on top? MACARONS.

 

I can't get over the colorful cloud wrap on this one:

(By Festa Com Gosto in Brazil)

Look how sweet! Even the piped border on the bottom looks like little clouds.

 

Swooning over this next topper; so many teeny flowers!

(By Sweet Disposition Cakes in Australia, now closed)

Also digging the horizontal stripes and the sprinkling of sprinkles on the bottom.

 

You've probably noticed pastel rainbows are all the rage now, but I'm still a sucker for Mr. Roy G. Biv:

(Baker unknown. Anyone recognize it?)

This blending of 2D illustration with 3D elements is SO GOOD.

 

But why have just one unicorn when you can have half a dozen?

(By Annette's Cake in Indonesia)

Yesssss. So cute! My favorite are the hot air balloons - so clever how they're "floating" beside the cake.

 

This sweet unicorn has her own cloud cover:

(By Carolinchens Zuckerwelt in Germany)

I like the way the rainbow curls at the ends - and the sun peeking out from the bottom edge!

 

Of course, thanks to my friend Sharyn I can't talk about unicorns without picturing THIS ONE:

(By CakesDecor user Sue)

"It's so fluffy I'm gonna die!" Hee!

Actually the mini cake Agnes is on is the fluffiest bit - look at that icing fur! Dang! Plus the name with the Minion eye is super fun.

 

While we're throwing some fandom unicorns in here, you KNOW I have to include...

(By Belly's Bake Shop, posted here on Reddit, but I can't find their website. Help?)

...a Harry Potter unicorn. (What, were you expecting Little Ponies? ;D)

 

And finally, one last Sweetie that I've decided to call "The Mane Event:"

(By Zavrzlama in Serbia)

'Cuz I am alllll about that rainbow mane.

 

Have a Sweet Sunday, everyone!
