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: Fraggles and Dragons and Groot, Oh My!

Whether you're a kid or just feel like one, nothing beats seeing one of your favorite characters in cake, am I right?

And if you've already seen Guardians of the Galaxy 2, I bet this is one of your new favorites:

(By Tattooed Bakers)


And just look at all that fabulous detail & airbrushing!


Here's another favorite no one's ready to "let go" just yet:

(By The Hobby Baker, photo by Alison Greenwood)

Olaf! Let's just pretend he's singing our version of his summer song.

(Those waves are fantastic, btw; love how the number 5 is floating off to the side.)


Groot and Olaf may be the new characters in town, but some classics never get old:

(By Sonata Torte)

Winnie-the-Pooh, and the whole gang, too!


I'll admit it: I still love cartoons, and I still really love the Ninja Turtles:

(By You've Been Cupcaked)

Look how cute! And lookit Mikey on his back! D'awww.


This next one is for my fellow writer Sharyn, because "it's so fluffy I'm gonna die!!"

(By The Bunny Baker)

That's Agnes from Despicable Me, and I want her stuffed unicorn.


Ever see a character you grew up with and instantly get the show's theme song stuck in your head?

(By Richards' Cakes)

"Down in Fraggle Rock!"


Time for another favorite, this time from The Lego Movie:

(By April Heather)

Yay Unikitty!

Would you believe April is just a hobby baker? She made this for her daughter, so I think I speak for us all when I say, "JEALOUS."


How about an old arcade classic?

(By Sculpted Sweets)

It's Pac-Man, now in 3D! Great design, great colors.


And everyone's favorite Pixar robot:

(By Sweet Disposition Cakes)

Wall-E! Look closely; that "dirt" is actually chocolate sprinkles.

Here's a fun flashback for you: my first Sunday Sweets EVER was of a Wall-E cake.
I also have the Pop Funko toy perched on my monitor, so he can watch me while I work. :)


And another universally loved 'bot - though I think he prefers "droid":

(By Mira que Tarta)


Like Wall-E, there are a TON of great R2 cakes out there, but I love the extra details here: the themed number 7, the Tatooine landscape, and those bitty yellow wires on R2's "feet."


And finally, from droids to dragons:

(By Richards' Cakes)


This How To Train Your Dragon masterpiece needs a closer look, so here are a few detail shots:

He's even wearing a saddle!

I'm amazed bakers this talented don't also go into the clay figurine business. I'd buy some of these dragons for my desk in a heartbeat!


Hope you enjoyed your Sweets today, everyone! Happy Sunday!

I went to the puppet museum in Atlanta recently to see the Jim Henson exhibit and legit squealed when I saw the Fraggles!

I thought you guys were still doing only reruns, but now you refer to GotG 2. Do you make an exception for Sundays?

September 17, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterClassic Steve

These are amazing! It makes me curious--do the bakers have to secure permission to use all these licensed characters?

September 17, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterWendy

I love all of these today! But I especially keep going back to that Olaf cake. The pairing of that sand layer with the waves is perfection.

(In my best Tim Gunn imitation.)

How to eat a masterpiece? This is a conundrum!!

September 17, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterTere

Regarding the last cake: Stormfly (the one with the saddle) is female.
These are all really cool! (-:

Oh great, now I can't decide whether to binge Fraggle Rock or HTTYD today... ;-)

September 17, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterL

I went back and saw your first Wall-E, and he was "Wall-some"!!!

September 17, 2017 | Unregistered Commentersendingtheclowns

Every Sunday I'm amazed and delighted at all the Sunday Sweets!

September 17, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterChicago

Does that Hiccup have both feet?

September 17, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterAwesomeAud

Wow. Love then all but amazed by the how to train your dragon one.

September 17, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterSally

Unikitty is awesome!

September 17, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterJules

Richard's Cakes are amazing! The dragons, especially; but I was also amazed by the perfect mossy ground. I followed many links (Richard is is Manchester, England), the original Wall-E Sunday Sweet, and from there your first confession of dislike for CCCs (ptooey!). Thanks for a fun Sunday.

Glad it's R2 and not the soccer ball. #LegendsForever

September 17, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterMel

Gorgeous - I really enjoyed this bunch. Hope you get your power back soon!

I live for the How to Train your Dragon cake (seriously...going back over this post, I didn't even notice the Star Wars cake at first, because I was done once I saw Toothless). Best. Movie. Ever.

But...I have to say....

Why is there a monkey?

September 18, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterShelly

Can I get Gerard Butler to deliver the How to Train Your Dragon Stoick??? Please??????
