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 GOES SHOPPING!

With everyone in a shopping frenzy this weekend, I figured hey, why not make it a FEEDING frenzy... of shopping! Only, you know, in cake.

(This, uh, sounded better in my head.)

So, let's say you're shopping for a sweet Vera Bradley purse:

BAM! That's totally cake!

So you'll have to keep looking.
But still. Amazing, right?


Adults can be hard to buy for, but I love shopping for little kids:

Yes, cake! I think only the bottom rockers are real wood.


(By Splendor Cakes)

Pew pew!


And the most perfect iPod delivery system:

Of course, we big kids like our toys, too:

It helps if the person you're buying for has a hobby, of course. Like baking. Or storing cooking utensils in fancy jewelry bags:

But it's hard to go wrong with a little bling for the ladies. Or a LOT of bling.

(By Yener's Way)


And don't let the fellas fool you; they like their bling, too:

(By Ron-Ben Israel Cakes)


Still, we all know the holidays are all about the GADGETS, am I right?

(By Sweet Jeelees)

Although I still refuse to recognize "phablet" as a word. I JUST WON'T DO IT.


Well, here's wishing you every shopping triumph this season, my friends. Oh, and remember to get something for everyone in the family, k?

Happy Sunday!

It's impossible to select a favorite! Any of those cakes would be difficult to cut, but that sweet little Corgi? Impossible!

I can't resist! Wouldn't that little blue bag of utensils (fifth from last) be on its way to a........
Breakfast at Tiffany's?

I probably would be shocked at the cost, but would readily admit "Worth it" for all. The purse is just jaw-droppingly great.

Another great post, Jen. Those cakes are truly works of art. For me, the corgi with Christmas lights takes the cake.
