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 For April (Baby) Showers

Did you survive Giraffe Watch this month? You know, that thing where the entire internet held its collective breath waiting for April the giraffe to have her baby?

(Spoiler Alert: April had the baby... in April. She's meta like that.)

If so, then LOOKIE:

(By Little Apple Cakes)

How perfect is this?!

In fact, I decided that April Showers was just the theme we needed this week.

Although these won't all have giraffes. Sorry.

 

I think you'll forgive me once you see this, though:

(By Cup N' Cake)

Because squeeee!

 

A moment of appreciation, please, for the parents who threw a ninja-themed baby shower:

(By BCakeNY)

You long-time readers might recall John and painted a ninja-themed nursery once, so this sings the song of my geeky lil' heart.

 

As a life-long lover of puns, I also dig the more literal interpretations of a "shower" cake:

(By Always With Cake!)

Plus how great are those colors?

 

Or if you're having twins, how about this Sweet take on "two peas in a pod"?

(By McGreevey Cakes)

So cute!

 

Of course, the classics never go out of style:

(By Little Hunnys Cakery)

And sometimes a cute little stork with pastel bunting is just what the doctor ordered.

 

Or duckies!

(By The Cake Cuppery)

 

Or a baby vampire in a gothic spiked buggy!

(By Black Cherry Cake Company)

Wait. OK, maybe that's not exactly traditional... but I still love it.

 

Will I ever get tired of sleepy woodland creatures on cakes?

(By Cottontail Cake Studio)

No, no I will not. ::grabby hands::

(That fox! Ah! And the flower swag is perfection.)

 

And finally, I'll end with the one I fell in love with for its unusual, stunning design:

(By Silvia Mancini)

YES PLEASE.

See, THIS is the way to do a belly cake! A gorgeous blend of 2D painting with 3D sculpting, and the flower is just the right crowning touch. Pun intended. Love it.

Happy Sunday, everyone! Hope it's extra Sweet!

Sunday Sweets Hops To It

Happy Easter, cake lovers!

Don't worry if you didn't get a basket this year; I've got you covered:

(By The Clever Little Cupcake Company)

With a bonus little lamb! Squee!

 

We've also got a sweet hand-painted bunny:

(By Ludmilla Schmalz)

 

And something for you coloring book fans:

(By The Hobby Baker as part of the Easter Coloring Book Collaboration)

Seriously, how fun is this?!

 

There are so many gorgeous Easter cookies out there that I had to include at least one - and these are the prettiest little things I've seen in ages:

(By Irena "Gingerbread Heart")

That delicate piping! And the cut-outs!

 

Any carrot cake lovers out there?

(By Cake Heart)

I'm digging the texture (how'd they do that?) and the "paper" carrot fans.

 

For those who need a BIGGER basket:

(Baker Unknown. Anyone recognize it?)

Remember to share. (And dibs on the bow!)

 

Did you know an egg is the perfect shape for a dapper bunny?

(By Always With Cake)

Neither did I! But now I want to snuggle him.

 

This little cutie has the sweetest flower arch:

(By Sweet Art Lab)

Love her ears and that bright green grass.

 

And here's a colorful bunny hutch:

(By Inspired By Cake)

Pastel paneling and an eggs-cellent topper; I like the different sizes.

 

And finally, a festive Easter... rooster?

(By Cleopatra Cakes)

Aww yeeeeah. So gorgeous! And he's got an egg (with blue poppies!), so this totally counts.

 

Happy Easter, everyone! I hope your Sunday is extra Sweet!
