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: Masquerade!

Mardi Gras is this week, peeps, and you know what THAT means:

(Rachel Noel Designs)

Time to make Fat Tuesday live up to its nommilicious name!

 

Although I found so many gorgeous masquerade cakes this week I've decided today will be less Mardi Gras and more carnival masks in general. That way I can show off ALL the colors.

Speaking of which, let's kick off with a classic:

(By Petit Cali Cupcakes)

Ahhh. Gold leaf, black lace, and red roses were meant to be together.

 

Or for something kicky:

(By Jessica's Cakes & Cupcakes)

Love the topsy turvy design here; doesn't it look like it's dancing?

 

You guys, these textures are everything:

(By Shannon Bond Cake Design)

What are those on the bottom? Glass drops? And the berry sprigs are perfection.

 

Here's one inspired by fire and ice:

(By Cake Central User dittle)

I like the reversed colors and patterns on the mask.

 

And another stunner:

(By Kelvin Chua of Vinism Sugar Art)

Look at those metallics! Ah! And the butterfly mask matches the one on the cake board!

 

A sweet pastel number:

(By The Frostery)

So many cute elements - see the striped handle for the top mask? And I'm digging the random confetti bits sprinkled around.

 

If you're looking for wedding inspiration, I've got you covered right here:

(By Ana Paz Cakes)

Ahh-MAZING.

 

And this next one is - dare I say it? - peachy keen:

(By The Brighton Cake Company)

Those are all handcrafted sugar flowers - can you believe it? So gorgeous, I want one to wear!

 

And finally, I don't know how they did this next one, but I think I'm in love:

(By Clairella Cakes)

Look at that oh-so-subtle leafy texture, and those colors! Ah! Reminds me of old-fashioned marble paper, or a soft watercolor painting. And while I'm collecting cake things to wear, I'd like that top mask, pretty please. :D

 

Hope you all enjoyed! Have a sweet Sunday, and a merry Mardi Gras!

Sunday Sweets Goes FULL UNICORN

Have you noticed unicorns and rainbows are all the rage again lately? There are unicorn cafes, unicorn drinks - heck, I even spotted a unicorn grilled cheese. o.0

Isn't enough enough?

The answer, of course, is no.

NO AMOUNT OF UNICORNS IS EVER ENOUGH.

(By I love Cakes by Sheila)

Squeeee!

 

Yes, this Lisa Frank-loving woman-child is jumping on the technicolor bandwagon today, peeps, because look at these unicorn macarons:

(By Mac Lab Bakery & Cafe)

They have Fruity Pebble manes! Ahhh!

 

And look at this watercolor drip deliciousness:

(By Truly Scrumptious Cakes By Design)

Pastel rainbow heaven!

 

You know that thing where someone takes one awesome thing and mashes it together with another awesome thing?

Well, I give you:

(By Vickie Liu)

Unicorn Ice Cream Cone Cookies.

 

Or how about these sweet little cake pops?

(By Just Add Sugar)

The little rosy cheeks! Ah!

 

A lot of so-called Unicorn treats are really just rainbow-colored food, and while I will never complain about rainbow-colored food, I do like that this Sweetness at least has a twisty unicorn horn on top:

(By D Bakers Sweet Studio)

Those rainbow tiers are perfection! And do I spy cotton candy? OooOOOoooh.

 

Who else suddenly wants to nuzzle a cupcake?

(By Lady Berry Cupcakes)

 

Now, I'm not saying these donuts really look like unicorns, but they're so stinkin' cute I think we can agree they score a Hole-In-One.

(By Christina's Cupcakes)

Get it? A hole in one? AAAAAI'll stop now.

 

I've never really been onboard with "naked" cakes... until now:

(Featured here, but the baker isn't listed. Anyone know?)

D'awww. If ever a cake deserved to be naked, it's this one.

 

And finally, let's end with the cake that turned me into a starry-eyed six-year-old again:

(By With Love And Confection)

It has meringue wings! And a mermaid crown! EEEEE!!!

Happy Sunday, everyone! May your week be as magical - and as colorful - as these unicorns!
