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? ;)

so many

And what's on the other side?

Rainbows are visions,
but only illusions,

By Art2eatCakes

and rainbows have nothing
to hide.


So we've been told and some choose to believe it.

I know they're wrong, wait and see.

Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection.

I love the Pegasus the best. Such beautiful colors.

June 28, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterMarie

Lovely, just lovely!

PS: Now I know this song makes me misty even when just reading the lyrics.

June 28, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterJanna

Beautiful! Thank you!

June 28, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterKathleen

Best Sunday Sweets, ever! Love the song, love the cakes, love the cameo at the end! Thanks for the great post!

June 28, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterMolly

So very lovely. Olivia's cake couldn't be more perfect, especially in molding a child to appreciate clean, simple, uncluttered design. These are all so beautifully made. Thank you. (And thanks for the memories inspired by Kermit's singing. I'll smile all day.)

June 28, 2015 | Unregistered Commenters.marie

Kermit....and that song...!! Thanks, guys... :'-}

Love wins. And I want sprinkles! This is one of my favorite posts ever.

June 28, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterDeirdre

Thank you! And cake #9 really blows my mind.

June 28, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterOldish Lady

Gentle, sweet, and delicious!

(I, too, got misty-eyed just reading the lyrics and thinking about all the joy from Friday. #loveislove)

June 28, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterLinzenberg

Just beautiful.

June 28, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterBecca

What lovely cakes, what a beautiful song, thank you so much for this uplifting post. #loveislove

June 28, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterFran

Made us cry. So lovely. Thanks.

June 28, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterMx&MxG

The dreamers cake is abstract perfection.

June 28, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterAngelaS

As a child of the 70s, let me just say how cool it is to see those incredibly 70s rainbow star-trails on cake #7! (Not to mention the instant tearing-up just from reading the lyrics of that song…and then ending on Kermit!)

June 28, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterShanti

Damned ninja chefs are slicing onions in here again.

June 28, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterDegera

In this case, more sprinkles are in order...

June 28, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterAnneke

Such beautiful cakes! The unicorn is my favorite, second only to the retro-stars cake. Oh, and Kermit! How can you not love Kermit?

June 28, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterRoxy Random

I just got a little verklempt! That penultimate cake is especially gorgeous.

June 28, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterEmily

They all look sooooooooo beautiful!!!!! <3

My favorite post!

June 28, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterKathiC

Beautiful, all of them!

I think my favorite is the one with the cascading rainbow flowers... And Kermit at the end made me smile. =-)

June 28, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterSeabird

Love the cakes, but getting a little sick of rainbows lately.

June 28, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterLinda

These are fabulous. Now I can't wait to see some of the Wrecks that come from them :)

June 28, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterKatie

Squeee, it's Kermit! I love Kermit!

June 28, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterCallista

I always love your blog, but this one is just perfect.

June 28, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterLydia

Not at all putsch-y!

June 28, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterNotMe

Hm... didn't like these Sweets that much. Some of them didn't look to yummy (as in comparison to most other sunday sweets). E.g. #3 has "melting" fondant.

June 28, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterMariciella

Love the movie, the rainbows and Kermie! Still gets me misty and reminds me of my childhood.

June 28, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterMary

🌈Rainbows are a symbol of God love FOR ALL!! No matter what!!!🌈
Congrats to our friends of the LGBT community for finally having the rights for marriage in all 50 states!
Love Wins!

I don't know how far in advance you work up your postings, but the timing on this is SPEC-tacular! Thanks!

June 28, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterLady Anne

I think that this is my all-time favorite Sunday sweets post! I agree with Molly's "I want sprinkles!" comment.

Looking at the pegacorn brought tears to my eyes and then to my cheeks when I realized that there was a baby too! Very rarely I'll follow a link to the bakers' sites, but I did on that one. She has all sorts of cakey awesomeness! There are several angles of the pegacorn cake (gorgeous!) plus an updated cake in which Momma is teaching Baby to fly -- a feat of beauty and engineering. And..wait for it..she does steampunk cakes too.

I loved the all-frosting tiers with the lattice and the cascading roses and followed that link too.

June 28, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterZippy

Totally cried! #LOVEWINS!!!

June 28, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterCharlie

Thank you Jen & John! I'm really not getting sick of rainbows yet & I'd love to see even another Sunday Sweets with fabulous gay and lesbian wedding cakes! Thanks for being part of the celebration! <3

June 28, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterDJ Stone

Perfect. Just perfect.

June 28, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterLinda K

Last summer I was with my friend and her fiancée as they picked out the music they wanted my group to play at their wedding. "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" was nominated, and then "Rainbow Connection", at which point one of the girls started to sing. She got as far as "Why are there so many songs about rainbows?" before the other cut her off with "Because it's a gay wedding. Duh." So this post brought back those happy memories too. Yay for more weddings!

These cakes are FAAAABULOOOUS! I want them all! And yes, I have been crying tears of happiness the past few days.

June 28, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterFlufferz

Sweet. And what a great way to end it with Kermit. <3

June 29, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterSandy

The link to the Greedy Baker is broken :(

(note from The Wrecksistant: All fixed! Thanks for the heads up!)

June 29, 2015 | Unregistered Commentergeogeek

Very well done !!!!! and the most outstanding rainbow cakes ever. Thank you for putting that together !
you even got me a little misty with this one. Again ...awesome post !!!!

June 29, 2015 | Unregistered Commenterryan

I read through this with my children, and we sang each line out loud. I got all emotional when we scrolled down to the last picture and saw Kermit. My daughter turned to me and said "Mum, that's your happy crying face!" :')
