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 For International Chocolate Day

I may not know the key to world peace, but I bet chocolate has something to do with it.

So today, let's go cuckoo for cocoa cakes with these gorgeous chocolate wedding designs.

EEEE! So pretty!


Here's a neat look:

(By Margaret's French Bakery)

I like how the chocolate is placed like broken mosaic tiles over the icing. So clever!


And check this out:

Those chocolate curls are perfection! Loving the tiny pops of lime green, too.


Another creative take:

Just when you thought chocolate couldn't get any more decadent:

(Anyone else hear that in Gold Member's voice? Just me?)


I like how this next one looks like a giant graduated swirly slide - which I realize doesn't SOUND elegant, but lookie:

(By Ben the Cakeman)

Gorgeous, right?


You don't see too much intricate piping work these days, which makes this one all the more spectacular:

(Baker unknown. Anyone recognize it?)

It's stunning!


And finally, a chocolate-and-gold beauty fit for royalty:

(Found here. Baker unknown)

There are no words, you guys - just lots of open-mouthed staring.


And, ok, maybe a little drool.

Happy Sunday, everyone! Let's go eat some chocolate.

Well they ARE lovely. And for those of us who have a rare and severe allergy to gold, a couple of those cakes would truly be, Death by Chocolate. What a great way to go!!

Oh, my. Do I have to make a choice? Well, the first two, and the next to the last cake, with the intricate white piping. And, no, you can't cut them. I'm just going to sit here and drool.

It's really hard not to drool on the computer when I see those beautiful cakes - and CHOCOLATE.

I think a few of those cakes are making me swoon....

The beauty is only skin (aka: frosting) deep. Lovely...but the chocolate, now, goes all the way to my *happy!*

The last one can be seen at, if your browser can handle it. The location seems to be the Harold Pratt House, event planning by Lyndsay Hamilton, PHOTOGRAPHY BY CHRISTIAN OTH STUDIO, and apparently floral design by Matthew Robbins design. Probable date was 2009. You could probably contact any of these if you really want to know the baker. I was able (with Chrome) to download a 900 x 1343 version if you need such. Oh, also see; this is probably the same wedding.

As if I didn't already love chocolate enough! So amazing, even setting aside the nice change from seeing wreckerators make chocolate look like poo...

I can't believe you had a chocolate Sunday Sweets without including Choccywoccydoodah!!

I love #2 and the one with all the fruit cascading along the chocolate ridges. but they're all works of art.

The last one is by Ron Ben Israel of NY

I looked through Ron Ben-Israel's Instagram, and I think this is the same cake, though I don't know why it appears in the feed last year:
