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 FULL UNICORN

Have you noticed unicorns and rainbows are all the rage again lately? There are unicorn cafes, unicorn drinks - heck, I even spotted a unicorn grilled cheese. o.0

Isn't enough enough?

The answer, of course, is no.


(By I love Cakes by Sheila)



Yes, this Lisa Frank-loving woman-child is jumping on the technicolor bandwagon today, peeps, because look at these unicorn macarons:

(By Mac Lab Bakery & Cafe)

They have Fruity Pebble manes! Ahhh!


And look at this watercolor drip deliciousness:

(By Truly Scrumptious Cakes By Design)

Pastel rainbow heaven!


You know that thing where someone takes one awesome thing and mashes it together with another awesome thing?

Well, I give you:

(By Vickie Liu)

Unicorn Ice Cream Cone Cookies.


Or how about these sweet little cake pops?

(By Just Add Sugar)

The little rosy cheeks! Ah!


A lot of so-called Unicorn treats are really just rainbow-colored food, and while I will never complain about rainbow-colored food, I do like that this Sweetness at least has a twisty unicorn horn on top:

(By D Bakers Sweet Studio)

Those rainbow tiers are perfection! And do I spy cotton candy? OooOOOoooh.


Who else suddenly wants to nuzzle a cupcake?

(By Lady Berry Cupcakes)


Now, I'm not saying these donuts really look like unicorns, but they're so stinkin' cute I think we can agree they score a Hole-In-One.

(By Christina's Cupcakes)

Get it? A hole in one? AAAAAI'll stop now.


I've never really been onboard with "naked" cakes... until now:

(Featured here, but the baker isn't listed. Anyone know?)

D'awww. If ever a cake deserved to be naked, it's this one.


And finally, let's end with the cake that turned me into a starry-eyed six-year-old again:

(By With Love And Confection)

It has meringue wings! And a mermaid crown! EEEEE!!!

Happy Sunday, everyone! May your week be as magical - and as colorful - as these unicorns!

Love the cakes. Offering a simple word of advice for all the unicorn lovers out there. Never, ever, EVER play leap-frog with a unicorn.

Ahh---AHhh--- can't look at the unicorn doughnuts without wanting to sneeze!
So cute, but I could Ah-chew into one, easily!

Not big on naked cakes either. Turns out plain cake isn't particularly attractive.

These are some seriously adorable cakes. Love the pastel dripping on that one!

Yay! Unicorn cup cake cakes! ^^

THANK YOU for including my Mermaid Unicorn cake with meringue wings in this magical gallery among such talented confectionery artists! All your cakes, cookies, pops and donuts look incredible! Everyone is invited to join my closed facebook group for my meringue recipe and video demo on how I created these yummy and dreamy wings!

I rarely comment on your posts, but this one had me sqeeeeeing like a little girl, and I thank you for that! What an awesome Sunday treat.

Wow - that last cake with the wings is amazing!!! All of these confections are truly squee worthy.

February 19, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterKyle

Ohboyohboyohboy! Sooooo stinkin' cute! :)

Veronica A.: those are some mean meringue wings! Wow! :)

OMG, I'm in love with #3!

February 19, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterBlisschick

All through the week I laugh with Cake Wrecks, but on Sundays I just enjoy seeing all the wonderful cakes and other treats! In the picture of the cupcakes- do you think that's a child's fork? It looks like it came from a silver service. And the last one with the wings, I would not be able to cut into it, how beautiful!

Eh. They are very nicely done, but how is a unicorn head instead of icecream on an icecream cone NOT wrecky?
Like a mob fairy got on the godfather's kiss-o- death list or what?

February 21, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterBlue

Just amazing! How are people so darned creative??? I'm gonna try and make those donut ones. 😍😍
