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: Summer Fun

Summertime is officially here, and what better excuse for an ice cream cake?

(By Patisserie Jaja)

 

Or a pool party?

(By Short and Sweets)

 

Better yet, you could throw your own backyard luau:

(By Cake Lava)

 

Just don't forget the seashell bras and grass skirts:

(By Charlie Cakes)

(SO CUTE. I love the pastels!)

 

Being a Floridian, though, I'm not so much the outdoorsy type right now; it's too hot!

But I'll gladly SING "Summer" to you, along with Olaf here:

(By Lori's Sweet Cakes)

"Da! Da da da. Da DA da-da da-da..."
And aren't those the sweetest summertime flowers?

 

I know for most folks summer is all about the beach, though, so here's to the surfers:

And to the "laze-on-the-beach-and-watch-the-sunset" ers:

And, of course, to the mermaids:

(By How2Cakes)

Because MERMAIDS.

 

Better yet, here's to itty-bitty mermaids building sand castles in adorable sand pails:

(By Tania Maroco)

Squee!

 

Well, however you spend your summer, may it be as sweet as a Hula dancer on an ice cream cone on a surfing, sunglasses-wearing sun:

(By Fiorella Balzamo)

Because that's pretty darn Sweet.

 

Happy Sunday, everyone!

Sunday Sweets: Wedding Wonders

Shaped and themed cakes are awesome, of course, but I still drool and dream over more traditional wedding cakes, too. After all, they've come a long way from just simple tiers with flowers - even the simple tiers with flowers!

(By Sweet Life Patisserie)

Love this SO MUCH.

 

And take a look at this amazing "fabric" pleating:

(By Delectable by Su)

Hard to believe those tufted pinwheels and embroidered borders are all sugar. It's so perfect!

 

And check out the string work on this engagement beauty:

(By Hana of A Piece of Cake)

I love the curls on the top tier, and the piping on the bottom lace collar and upper level strings is simply awe-inspiring. Skill like this always renews my faith in cake artistry. :)

 

Here's a sweet dress-inspired design:

(By Jackie Nelson)

Look at the design at the bottom of the skirt ruffles!

 

And how's this for a modern twist on a classic?

(By Elizabeth's Cakes)

If you've never stacked or tried to support cakes in the shape of a ball before, let me assure you: it's hard. And all that detail! Totally swoon-worthy.

 

Another rounded design:

(By See-Through-Silence)

See that lace border on top? Someone piped that. Yeah. Respect!

 

And speaking of mad piping skills:

(By The Cake Gallery)

Whoah. This reminds me of the Victorian-themed Grand Floridian resort here in Orlando. Frills and bows and hand-piped lace, oh my!

 

Or, for a more modern touch:

(By Fleur de Lisa Cakes)

This has been one of my favorite designs since before I even started CW. I love the swirls and the bold flowers.

 

Or, how about John's favorite?

(By Sugarbelle Cakes)

WOW. Just...wow.

 

And finally, the cake that had me scooping my jaw off the desk:

(By Susan Trianos aka Peecheekeeno)

That's all *cake*, guys. Look at that tufted tier in the middle. LOOK AT IT. Now, tell me: how the heck do they DO that? Not to mention the perfect corset lacing, the bows, the ruffles, the porcelain-perfect gumpaste roses...seriously, I think I could stare at this all day. Just. Gorgeous.

 

Happy Sunday!
