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 Kids & Kids At Heart

Confession Time: as much as I love all the Sweets I feature, it's the kids' cakes that thrill me the most.

From favorite childhood characters:

(By Alana Lily Chocolates & Cakes) new ones I've just met and already love:

(By Sugar Top Cakes) squee-inducing cuteness I just want to snuggle:

(By Bake-A-Boo)



Then there are colorful, guitar-rockin' monsters:

(By Phoenix Cake Company)


Dapper little owls:

(By Eunice Cake Designs)


...and the sweetest bees you ever did see:

(By Frosted Indulgence)

Just looking at this makes me happy. :)


When I was very young my parents let me buy a Little Twin Stars stationary set from Epcot, and even though I had no idea who they were, I've loved the pastel pair ever since.

And this is the best Little Twin Stars cake I've ever seen:

(By The Bunny Baker)

Kids' cakes, schmids' cakes. I'll take this one for my next birthday, thx.


Or how about this drop dead gorgeous Tangled tower?

(By Sabz Cakes)


Oooh! Or this little yellow submarine?

(By Über Angel Cakes)

Complete with a cutie-patootie pink seahorse!


And finally, since you all know I have a soft spot for adorable robots:

(By Isabella's Sweet Tooth)


Yep, this grown-up just wants kids' cakes from now on, guys. And I bet I'm not the only one, right?


Happy Sunday!

These are adorable! Thank you so much for brightening up my day!

You are definitely not the only one! I want the yellow submarine for that adorable little crab. <3

I think my "eee" on the last cake had 57 "e"s in it. MUST HAVE AND KEEP FOREVER.

Oh man, that Keroppi just brought back some memories. But I'm mainly partial to Gonzo, 'cause he's a weirdo. :-)

At my next birthday, 64, I want either the teddy bear or the owl one. Thank you.

November 29, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterTerri

Beautiful, but I really miss buttercream masterpieces......

November 29, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterMelissa Leet

That first one - how on earth did she DO that? Most of the time I can figure out the construction, but Gonzo has stumped. I love the Snuggle Bear. Flip you for it?

So. Much. Cute.

November 29, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterAngelaS

You raise an interesting point Jen - what birthday cakes have you received over the years?

November 29, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterDNA

The fur on that teddy bear is amazing! Looks very realistic!

November 29, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterOwen Wills

I can't tell you how long I just spent staring at that robot, trying to convince myself he's really cake. So much fun!

November 29, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterSeabird

They're all gorgeous but I love that the owl's eyes are cogs. I can just see them rotating around

November 29, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterJo

If I didn't know they were cakes, I would think they were the presents.
One question: Do they get sliced and eaten? And are they delicious?

November 29, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterMary Jayne

I LOVE SUNDAYS at Cake Wrecks! That Robot! All! <3

November 29, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterKatrina

How in the world did the baker make the "fur" on the bear cake look so irresistibly soft and fuzzy? Need, want, NOW! The robot is just to (to borrow a word from Jen) d'aww.

November 29, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterKyle

These are all wonderful..but I think the baby robot takes the cake. ;)

ADORBS!!! squee! :)

The Twin Stars cake brings up an excellent point - I always thought that it was so odd that there is any non-Disney character merchandise at any Disney location in Florida. I was so surprised to find the Hello Kitty chopsticks in the Japan pavilion at Epcot! There was (probably still is) cool Sanrio stuff there. Makes you wonder if Disney has any kind of partnership with/stake in Sanrio (not that I'm complaining - I love my chopsticks!). :)
