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 Hops To It

Happy Easter, cake lovers!

Don't worry if you didn't get a basket this year; I've got you covered:

(By The Clever Little Cupcake Company)

With a bonus little lamb! Squee!


We've also got a sweet hand-painted bunny:

(By Ludmilla Schmalz)


And something for you coloring book fans:

(By The Hobby Baker as part of the Easter Coloring Book Collaboration)

Seriously, how fun is this?!


There are so many gorgeous Easter cookies out there that I had to include at least one - and these are the prettiest little things I've seen in ages:

(By Irena "Gingerbread Heart")

That delicate piping! And the cut-outs!


Any carrot cake lovers out there?

(By Cake Heart)

I'm digging the texture (how'd they do that?) and the "paper" carrot fans.


For those who need a BIGGER basket:

(Baker Unknown. Anyone recognize it?)

Remember to share. (And dibs on the bow!)


Did you know an egg is the perfect shape for a dapper bunny?

(By Always With Cake)

Neither did I! But now I want to snuggle him.


This little cutie has the sweetest flower arch:

(By Sweet Art Lab)

Love her ears and that bright green grass.


And here's a colorful bunny hutch:

(By Inspired By Cake)

Pastel paneling and an eggs-cellent topper; I like the different sizes.


And finally, a festive Easter... rooster?

(By Cleopatra Cakes)

Aww yeeeeah. So gorgeous! And he's got an egg (with blue poppies!), so this totally counts.


Happy Easter, everyone! I hope your Sunday is extra Sweet!

That coloring book one is adorable!

Wow....! I love the little cutouts, but wouldn't try fitting them in.....they'd fit better in my mouth....yum!
My FAVORITE is that stunning Faberge' - worthy egg/rooster pair.
(Keep him around to crow you awake on the Fourth of July!)

I'm totally in love w/the rooster. I collect rooster/chicken figurines. All these cakes are so beautiful !!!!!

I'm thinking the texture on the carrot cake is coloured coconut.

April 16, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterAnnette

I think the fuzzy-looking carrot one is dyed coconut.

The rooster cake is amazing! I would like it just as an ornament around the house so I could enjoy it all the time.

April 16, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterAndreaClaire

These are so cool! The eggy-bunny totally needs to be a plushie! :)

The texture on the cake might be dyed...shredded wheat. I kid you not. My sister made a 'nest' cake for Easter dessert, and the outside was dyed shredded wheat. Pretty dang good, really.

April 16, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterMiss Mindy

Coconut? Shredded wheat? Have you heard what some people think a cheesecake is? They bake an ordinary cake, with icing as usual, and put grated cheese all over it. Seriously, I have tasted it. Not much though.

April 17, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterTiffany

Wow! To all of them.
And what I wouldn't give to be able to paint on paper like the hand painted cake! Is the bunny on that cake texturizing? He looks "fuzzy" on my screen.

April 17, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterJake & Me

Wowie wow! Happy Easter, Sunday Sweets!

See, bakers can make carrots in icing that don't look like penises!
