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 With Character

It's been a little while since we looked at some of my favorite character cakes, right?


Because lookie:

(By Cake Up)

How gorgeous is this Maleficent cake? Those wings!! And don't miss the tiny little spotted mushrooms, because I love them.


Another one of my favorite characters with huge black wings:

(By this Redditor's girlfriend, who isn't named)

Castiel from Supernatural!

And I may have squealed like the fangirl I am when I found this cake. (I learned that from the pizza man.)


Classic Winnie-the-Pooh never goes out of style:

(By Cake By Annie)

Those soft watercolors are perfect, and I like how Pooh & Piglet look like a 3D paper cutting!


There've been quite a few new kids' movie out this year, like Secret Life of Pets:

(By Sweet Prelude)


Finding Dory:

(By Cakes By Dani for The Dory Sugar Collaboration)

Can you find Dory? :) Also: WOWIE ZOWIE.


And apparently we got an Angry Birds movie?

(By Adore Cake Decor)

Granted, there are no birds on this one, but c'mon. That pig is the bee's knees.


Ah, and another Kung Fu Panda!

(By Oana Maria Ilie)



There's a new Pete's Dragon reboot coming out soon, but I'm feeling all persnickety about it, because Elliott is not furry. Elliott looks like this:

(By Tracy's Custom Cakery)


Ahem. As I was saying: THIS IS ELLIOTT.
And I loved this scene where they play tic-tac-toe on his belly. So cute!


I'm used to Alice in Wonderland cakes being bright, bold colors, so this pastel White Rabbit is like a cotton candy dream:

(By Emma Jayne Cake Design)

Look at all that detail! And the playing cards half-submerged in the cake board!


And finally, one more of my favorites who, again, has the loveliest black wings:

(By Alisa Asami)


Or is it Harry Toothless?

Whichever, this Toothless/Harry Potter mashup is the cutest thing I've seen all week, and I reeeeeally want that topper for my desk now. It's so perfect! And little Hedwig! AH! ::faints from teh cute::


Hope you guys enjoyed! Happy Sunday!

Re: Elliot
You are correct.
Thank you.

I need Toothless Potter to keep me company on my desk right now. Adorable!

August 28, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterDeirdre

Allow me to say, without question. The new Pete's Dragon is a fantastic film. A throwback to older Disney films. And I dare say far superior to the previous film which shares it's name. Arguably they shouldn't have even used the same title simply because the only similarities are 1) an orphan named Pete 2) a sometimes invisible green dragon Elliot.

But the new film is brilliant and it gets you in the feels many times. Bring tissue - like a box. Seriously.

Dragons are SUPPOSED to be scaly! What the actual ****?!
=^#.#^= ;-}

I'm also feeling a bit persnickety about the reboot because the old "Pete's Dragon" was the first movie I ever saw, at about 5, & y'know, memories.

August 28, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterSaraCVT

The Winnie the Pooh one is just perfect, and the amount of skill in the White Rabbit one is amazing.

August 28, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterLinda

I want Toothless Potter as a plushie. Now, please.

August 28, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterFont Lady

I need Toothless Potter. A lot. (Or an alot of Toothless Potters, whatever.) And Elliott, of course, looks like that cake, not the furry thing. When you can see him at all, that is. ;-)

August 28, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterL

IT'S ELLIOTT!! I feel the same way about the remake. The previews make it look like a horror film.

August 28, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterLydia B.

Toothless Potter is so adorkable!

August 28, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterKyle

The new Pete's Dragon is a wonderful movie. I loved the '77 film, but 2016 Elliot is just as kind, sweet, and wonderful.

And dragons with fur (or feathers) aren't as uncommon as you'd think. To each their own, but if you give it a chance, I think you'll enjoy it. :)

August 28, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterJohn R. Ellis

I'm a bit "ehhh" about the new Pete's Dragon as well, and I never even had the pleasure of watching the full original. But I've seen enough to love it, and the new ones seems... Edgier. More intense. Less playful. But anyways, that cake Elliot is stunning! I love it!

August 29, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterHeather

Thank you for stating that Elliot should not have fur! I totally agree, I loved the original movie and it has so many good components. I don't know why they had to deviate so far from the original :-(

I'll probably go see if eventually, but I won't be at all happy about it!!! lol

August 29, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterJennifer

Dat Toothless, though! Squeeeee!!!

August 29, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterLaura P.

So, how do you all feel about the giant mass of pink fur on '77 Elliot's head? ;)

The new film is neither "edgy" or "intense".

It's serene, dreamy, and quite pleasant.

(Almost as pleasant as the Harry Potter/How to Train Your Dragon mash-up.)

"I learned that from the pizza man." THE. BEST. Thank you for always, ALWAYS being my unicorn chaser.

I'm not half as ambivalent about Pete's Dragon as I am about Malificent, the Mary Sue fanfic written by an angsty goth teen who loved Wicked but completely missed the point of it, and was somehow mistaken for a Hollywood screenplay.

I now want a Castiel cake for my birthday. Or a Castiel. Either one is fine.

August 31, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterTrekkie Gal

In total agreement with you about Toothless/Potter...and I love the Elliott cake!

Opted for Kubo and the Two Strings (wonderful) this past weekend but may break down and see Pete/Elliott this coming weekend. I'll miss Mickey Rooney, though...and Doc Terminus. And the songs, I suspect. Are there any Gogans? They were priceless.

TB Tabby, I haven't seen the movie but I have to concede that the visuals from Maleficent look fabulous, and the cake is lovely.

On the other hand, I did listen to an audio version of the novel. and I have a hard time getting past the fact that two supposedly good fairies named their child Maleficent. I could have bought the character changing her name after the things that happened to her, but apparently the author wasn't familiar with the definition of the word...or didn't even realize that it was a word before it was a character's name.

I am under the impression that you are one of the only people who give a toss about Pete's Dragon.
