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 Goes Green For St. Paddy's

Saint Patrick's Day is coming, but it's a rare treat to find a cake as elegant as this Claddagh design for the holiday:

(By Cake Gallery)

Who needs flowers with clovers this sweet?

 

So rather than featuring all Leprechauns and pots of gold, today I'm also mixing in some gorgeous wedding cakes in one of my favorite colors:

(By Sweet Sugar Treats)

GREEN!

 

There's something so cheerful about bright emerald green, am I right?

Just like soft mossy greens make you feel at least 80% less stabby:

(By Tort Ekaterinburg)

Srsly, next time you're stuck in traffic, think about this cake. It'll totally help.

 

Now combine those two greens, and throw in some teensy pink roses...

(By Red Carpet Cake Design)

Aaaahhh.

That piping is blowing my mind. Perfect swags *and* brush embroidery!

 

This oh-so-subtle St. Patrick's design has the most incredible tiered tree on top:

(By Bobbette and Belle)

You've probably spotted the pot of gold, but what about the tiny Leprechaun?
(Took me a minute!)

 

I heard a delicious rumor that this pot of gold is filled with a layer of cheesecake:

[drooling]
[heavy breathing]
[repeated attempts to lick the screen]

WHAT.

 

You know, I'd never have thought this color combo would work, but WOW does it:

(By The Cake Tress)

 

And since orange is my favorite favorite color, of COURSE I'm feeling this next one:

(By Jim Smeal)

Look closely; those lines are all hand-piped!

 

There's a new trend of making cakes as beautiful inside as they are out, and lemme tell ya:

(By Make Fabulous Cakes)

I APPROVE.

 

In fact, since you really can't have a St. Patrick's Day celebration without at least ONE rainbow...

(By Rosie Cake Diva)

...here's a cake with ALL the rainbows. [squee!]

In fact, you can keep your pot o' gold, Mr. Leprechaun; I'll just take this cake.

 

Happy Sunday, everyone!

Sunday Sweets Celebrates Kids' Movies

Anyone else out there addicted to kids' movies? 'Cuz I admit it: I love 'em. Especially since they keep making so many amazing ones.

Besides, how can you NOT love Baymax?

(By Catherine's Cakery)

Seeing Big Hero 6 in the theater was a milestone for me, since I'd been avoiding theaters for years on account of my panic disorder. But I went to that movie, loved it, and didn't panic. So in his way, Baymax the Healthcare Robot helped me, too.

Gosh, that got sappy fast, huh? Sorry.

ONWARD!

 

To quote a certain Despicable soundtrack: this cake makes me "Happpyyyyy!"

(By Cakes By Carol)

IT'S SO FLUFFY!!

 

Sure, there are eleventy billion Frozen cakes out there, but check this out:

(By Carmen's Art Cakes)

It's based on the new short, Frozen Fever! Which I still haven't seen yet. I... need to fix that.

 

A fantastic plane from Planes:

(By Haute Sweets by Hiromi)

Sometimes - like when I'm looking at that propeller - I have to remind myself we're looking at cake.

 

Another movie that had me dancing in my seat:

(By Sogni de Zucchero)

Rio!
The sculpting on those figs is blowing me away.

 

Anyone remember The Gruffalo?

(By Fat Cakes Design)

He's from a kids' book-turned-animated-short, so that's one more for my to-watch list.

 

Next, the movie with my second-favorite Batman*:

(By Bake-a-boo Cakes)

LEGO Batman.

Although I'm also loving Unikitty up there!

[*Second favorite, because Michael Keaton foreverrrrr.]

 

Technically not a kids' movie, but who doesn't turn into a big kid over baby Groot from Guardians?

(By Cinnamon Square)

NOBODY, that's who.

 

A few months ago John and I finally watched Book of Life, and WOW. So good.

Just like this cake!

(By Little Cherry Cake Co)

 

And check out this gravity-defying Box Troll:

(By Little Cake Shop)

The sense of motion here is incredible; you expect to blink and see him flat on the pavement!

 

And finally, and most squee-worthy, BABY TOOTHLESS:

(By Fernanda Abarca)

I'd very much like to train THIS dragon, pretty please. (The little tongue! ACK! So cute.)

 

Happy Sunday, everyone!
