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 Sings the Blues

Ever get the urge to make up your own Blues jam? Or is that just me?

Such sweet cakes on a sad anniversary

Sharyn!!! Lovely to see you back. And I just L-O-V-E these cakes! Impossible to pick a favorite one.
Once in my life I'd like to have a piece of a cake like this. So curious as to how one tastes.

Now I've got the blues. This might be my favorite Sunday Sweets ever, blue is my all time favorite color!

Hi Maureen! Nice to see you, too!

September 11, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterSharyn

These are amazing. I love the really subtle ones.

btw: Louis Armstrong was a jazz musician, not blues.

There's a CAMEO brooch on that cake! Someone made a CAMEO! I am in awe.

Well, howdy, miss Sharyn! Haven't seen you around these here parts in a dog's age! Bet you just missed all of US....(because I'd rather not think that you missed the wrecks of it...)=^~.~^=

Love these! Especially the marbled one, the starry night one, and the last ombre one -- fondant free!

September 11, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterErica

That was the best Louis Armstrong voice I've ever heard!

Hi, @Sending! Yeah, I got busy with Life, the Universe, and Everything, but I've still been checking on you guys every day. I need my daily fix, just like you.

September 11, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterSharyn Hamilton

Haha, looking forward to seeing the cake wrecks resulting from this inspiration - the color blue has so much potential :D

September 11, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterKaethe

Welcome back @Sharyn! I've missed your comments. :)

September 11, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterAngelaS

These are each unique and wonderful! Oliver's cake gave me a smile on such a solemn day.

Hi @AngelaS!

Starry Night is my favorite - each one of those stars are wishes and prayers for our fellow humans.

September 11, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterKyle

Beautiful blues...

September 11, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterSeabird

Such gorgeous cakes! But a "Louis Armstrong" voice for the Blues? Err...That's like saying Han Solo piloted the USS Enterprise! Muddy Waters or John Lee Hooker would've been more accurate!

September 12, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterKathleen

The Marbled Cake is STUNNING!

September 12, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterMIss Paper

Totally heard the entire post in Louis Armstrong's voice! =)

September 12, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterJo

You might be singing the blues, but now all I can think is "I'm blue da bu dee da bu di". That'll be in my head for a while

September 12, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterTess

Beautiful cakes, but all I could think of was wedding pictures with blue teeth on everyone.

September 13, 2016 | Unregistered Commentercharlotte

Oooooh, I want that last one at my own wedding! But your wedding cake wrecks have made me so nervous... haha.

At least I'm not getting married for a while but I'll be sure to take a pic of the cake and send it in regardless of what it looks like XD

September 14, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterSilverTiger

wonderful. simply wonderful.
