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 Brings The Llama Drama

You guys, llamas are so hot right. All that fur? Oh yeah, they're keepin' warm.

(By Alba's Cake Studio in California)

 

But also, Llamas are SO POPULAR now. Move over, sloths! Not only does llama rhyme with "no drama," they're also (basically) long-necked sheep with bunny ears and giant, boop-able noses:

I mean, what's not to love?

 

Plus all llama's love pastels, which makes them superior to any primary-color-loving animal:

(Found on Re Pretti's Instagram)

 

Sometimes they're even pastel themselves!

(By Cup 'N Cake, Arizona)

Eeeeee! SO CUTE. (I think her fur is actual cotton candy, y'all. This is amazing.)

 

Check out these cool cats... who are actually llamas:

(By Kupcakes & Co, Maryland)

Or are they alpacas?

Note to self: Google the difference between llamas and alpacas.
(Or just wait for the commenters to tell you.)

 

This one is rocking the best blue bouffant:

(By Rossana Avila)

She's so dapper, I love it.

 

And this one may have the boopiest nose of all:

(By Bumble Bake in New York)

D'awww. And look at those eyelashes!

 

Here's a sweetie looking lovely in lilac:

And, be still my heart, here comes a whole herd!

(By Carlota's Sweets, Florida)

How could you possibly pick a favorite?
(Dibs on the orange bow tie, which is CLEARLY the best one. :D)

 

And finally, here comes the softest cotton cloud in the sweetest pink bow to make all of us sit and sigh happily:

(By Sugar High, Inc)

Ahhhhh. So sweet.

 

Happy Sunday, everyone!

10 Sunday Sweets I'd Make For Valentines If I Could

Valentines Day is this week, Sweets fans! Who wants to craft a gorgeous showstopper cake like this for your SO?

(By Made With Love, England)

WOW.

 

And who wants to just look at gorgeous cakes, pick your favorite, and then THINK about making it?

(By Nasa Mala Zavrzlama, Serbia)

Yep, totally with you.

 

How about this dramatic number:

(By VIP Torte Minsk, Belarus)

Oooh, I feel under-dressed just looking at it. John! Go put on a tuxedo!

 

(By Jane Cakes, Russia)

D'aww, look at those hand-painted cuties!

 

Maybe that's too much red for you, though. Maybe you're feeling a little... blue?

(By Blacksun, Slovakia)

I love these colors together! That bottom tier especially is magic.

 

Or how about some hot pink?

(By Sophia Fox, Portugal)

The heart geode on top is all sugar. I like the hearts down the side even better, though; they remind me of a sweet glass wind chime.

 

Gotta have some soft pastels in here, too:

(By Sweet Love Cake Couture, Australia)

This one has my heart all atwitter.

(Eh? EH?)

 

But of course red roses are classic:

(By Moli Cakes in Slovakia)

Really digging the black and white outlining; it makes them look like a 2D painting come to life, right?

 

Speaking of a mix of 2D and 3D, look at this fabulous pile of ruffles:

(By Kris Marx, Russia)

Gorgeous!

 

And finally, a Valentine Sweet guaranteed to make a splash:

[Baker unknown, help?]

Woohoo!

That sugar glass wave is incredible! Hey John, let's pretend I made this one for you, k?

 

Happy Valentines week, everyone! May you find lots of chocolate, laughter, and hugs.
