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? ;)

Even though the days aren't TOO cold,

Especially during trips to the pumpkin patch!

It's a good idea to buy an extra pumpkin (or six) for carving.

And don't you love how much easier it is to find caramel apples now?

That's always a good thing.

So, before I stock up on chocolate and plan a Fall nap, let me just wish you all:

Happy Fall!

Even though it's chilly enough for a sweater here today, I would trade all of my sweaters for one of these cakes. Heck, I'd trade all of my shoes for that gnome sitting on the pumpkin...

They're all beautiful or cute, but I want the first one! And the fourth one. And the seventh one.

I love the sock monkey colours knit cake. So adorable!

October 2, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterRose

Does that teddy bear on the last one have any cake in it, or is is made entirely of icing? Please say it's all icing. Please.

I-cing, I-cing, I-cing....

I'm going to need that bear from the last cake in plush form. For, reasons.

October 2, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterDegera

Awwww! Was that first one fondant free? So pretty!

October 2, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterErica

Oh, the first one looks like it's shaking it's leafy head in the fall breeze, just for fun!
The fourth, mosaic- like one would be wonderful as a candle!
The knit hat is adorable, and they're ALL beautiful, but my favorite is the drool-worthy caramel apple.Oh! Are those chocolate - covered pretzels?Just stab me with one, now...!

I hope Catherine has a sock monkey

These are ALL A-MAZ-ING, but as a knitter, I find myself especially drawn to the one with the knitted texture. Gorgeous work.

October 2, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterAddie

They are all just so wonderful!

October 2, 2016 | Unregistered Commenteriamfelix

I'm definitely buying an extra pumpkin or perhaps two to carve this year, because last year I managed to make one small cut in the wrong place and botch the entire thing. ;_;

October 2, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterGG

How do you EVEN make a cake appear to be knit? (knitted?) That's brilliant. And the first one makes my heart beat a teensy bit faster!

October 2, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterSmarie

Wonderful cakes! But I hope you'll remember us southern hemisphere readers who are enjoying the spring daffodils and crocuses...

What are the beautiful delicate fall leaves made of?

October 2, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterJay

I like all of them -- but especially Cake #4 for beauty! And the very last one -- do you think the tree stump also has cake inside?

October 3, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterNancy

Lovely! I especially love the caramel apple cake, since it's the only kind of caramel apple I can eat....stupid allergies :(

October 3, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterLindne V

It's doing all that somewhere...
Meanwhile in Texas....woo hoo...the temp has dropped from the 90s to the 80s! Happy Fall!
