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, everyone!

Is your basket overflowing with candy eggs today? Because here's a Sweet idea: 

(By The Gunny Sack)

Love those colors!


Or perhaps you like your cake with a little more character:

(By Montreal Confections, featured here)

I know bunny butt cakes are popular, but I gotta say, I prefer this end. Lookit dat cute lil' nose.


And this one made me grin:

(By Yummy-Mummy Cake Creations)



As you might imagine, I tend to have a soft spot for cakey carrots:

(By Fantasticakes Cecile Crabot)

And how fun is this design? Really diggin' all the little details, like the snail on the sign and that little green worm sticking out the side.


Sometimes a Sweet can be as simple as these perfectly-piped cookies:

(By Kava Dolce)

Those eyes, ha! I'm sure I'd mess 'em up, but they make me want to break out the royal icing.


Cookie art has come a long way, too; check out these amazing 3D cookie baskets:

(By Julia Usher)

Even the patterns are edible; they're printed frosting sheets.
(It's nice to see edible ink being used for GOOD and not wrecks, huh?)


Oooh, here comes another carrot!

(By My Cake School - hit the link for tutorial)

Well, it's no carrot jockey rocket, but it'll do. ;) And you've gotta love the Peep riders!


I almost didn't believe this next egg was cake; it's too perfect:

(By Made With Love)

Over on her site there's a companion egg cake with a slice out, though, and there are 4 or 5 layers in there! Swooning over the soft colors and that perfect flower swag.


More soft pastels and sweetness:

(By Rouvelee's Creations)

And teensy carrots! Yes!


And finally, a gracefully chic Lady Easter Bunny:

(Made for Project Hof van Saksen voor Ronald McDonald Huis)

Isn't she gorgeous? And so unique, like an art doll sculpt! Love.


Hope you all have a beautiful Easter Sunday!

I wish a baker would do the Country Bunny with the Golden Shoes. It's such a wonderful story and would make a great cake.

Anyone know the show Peep and the Big Wide World? (It's adorable, FYI.) Those cookies totally remind me of Peep!

Happy Easter, everyone!

Yes! Those cookies are Peep of Big WIde World fame. So perfect. One of our favorite shows right now.

I've seen a lot of Sunday Sweets cake that just make it impossible to believe that anyone could ever destroy such artistry by eating them. But that Lady Bunny cake... that was it. Anyone who cuts into it is GUILTY OF A CRIME and needs to go to cake jail. :) It might also be a mortal sin that would lead to a stint in purgatory, where sinners would be forced to eat bridal wrecks for the next thousand years.

I'm the crazy bunny lady. I love all things bunny. That first bunny cake made me squeal at work. I'm a substitute teacher and eating lunch in my classroom. I have a few students in here right now. I don't think they noticed and/or cared about my enthusiastic "awwwee!" at the perfect little face. Thank goodness! I just want ALL THE BUNNIES!!
