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? ;)

Superb Owl Sunday Sweets

As I'm sure most of you know, it's Super Bowl Sunday. To those of us who aren't fans of sportsball, though, it's Superb Owl Sunday.

Our day has less cheering, sure, but what it lacks in beer and hot wings it more than makes up for with adorable cakes:

(By Little Boutique Bakery)

Like this!


Or this:

(By Couture Di Sucru)


I like how this one uses piped buttercream to mimic the texture of wood grain:

(By You've Been Cupcaked)

Also, baby owl. 'Nuff said.


Here's one that's ALL buttercream - no fondant!

(By White Flower Cake Shoppe)

Just to remind you guys that it CAN be done.


Love the colors on this one:

(By Fat Cakes Design)

Plus the way the branch wraps around the two tiers.


Check out the detail in these feathers:

(By Cake Crumbs)



Who else needs these owl wedding toppers?

(By Delicut Cakes)

And though it's not necessarily owl-related, I'm digging all the great textures on each tier.


It turns out owls are PERFECT for baby shower cakes:

(By Ann-Maries Cakes)



I like how this tree adds a 3D element:

(By Dream Cakes By Robyn)


Of course, I have to include the world's most magical owl:

(By Delectable Cakes)


Who looks surprisingly cute in Harry's glasses.


And finally, a dramatic cutie with wafer paper feathers:

(By The Cake Tin)



Happy Superb Owl Sunday, everyone!

It’s so hard to believe the owl on the stump is actually cake!!!!!

OK. Somebody 'splain to me how they did that last cake. And the first one is just superb; sometimes less really IS more.

I love these all so much! That two-tiered cake with the twisting branch is especially gorgeous. Thanks for these! Superb Owls are way more entertaining (and definitely cuter) than the Super Bowl. The only "Bowl" I ever watch is the Puppy Bowl on occasion.

I am absolutely FEATHERGASTED by the last owl. I would be afraid to even open a window near that......or cough...or ...breathe?
.....just amazing.

These are beautiful! There are two missing though. Owl from Winnie the Pooh and the one from the Clash of the Titans (original, not remake). If there are cakes for Clash, I NEED to see them!

Just went back and searched. Found Bubo in 2010. Amazing!

Did anyone else notice the sweet tiny bunny on the washing line! Too cute!

Now that we've passed our OWLs, next week we need to do our NEWTs.

Adorable and so perfect!

February 5, 2018 | Unregistered Commenterdiddleymaz

These are so wonderful that I can't stop smiling.

February 5, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterNancy

One of my favorite Sunday Sweets. =-)

@Sendingtheclowns - Bonus points for "feathergasted"!! That made me smile.

February 5, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterSeabird

These cakes are definitely "owl-right"!

February 9, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterPam S.

If I ever host a Labyrinth-themed party, I will definitely order the barn owl cake from that Cake Crumbs company!! ;)
