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 Avengers: Infinity War

You guys, I think I'm the only one left who hasn't seen Infinity War.

But no matter!

From everyone's Facebook reactions I already know it's a lighthearted, leisurely romp that I think takes place on the beach? Because there's sand everywhere?

Anyhoo. The point is you don't need the plot to want to gnaw on Thor's hammer here:

And for those of you who were expecting a sugar sculpture of Chris Hemsworth: SHAME ON YOU.



That's this one:

I am excited about the Guardians of the Galaxy meeting the Avengers, though:

In my dream casting Baby Groot plays every role, just dressed up in different outfits.


Plus there's Black Panther!

(By Lamara Cakes in Nigeria)

I love this combination of a traditional African design with his face mask. So, so gorgeous.


I like the newest Spider-Man almost as much as I like this cake:

(By Starry Delights in Nottingham, UK)

The shading really makes it.


I heard a rumor Hawkeye is NOT in Infinity War, which is a shame because his arrows look great holding up Thor's cape:

And you've really got to hand it to this next design:

(By Something Sweet in Pennsylvania)

Hulk's hands coming through the base to hold up ANOTHER cake board? I approve.


Oh, and does it get any cuter than Deadpool riding a unicorn?

(By Letterpress Bakery in Vancouver)



Last weekend John and I were at MegaCon here in Orlando (Shameless Plug: go see my photos!), and there was a hilarious trend of every Marvel character wearing their own Infinity Gauntlet.

Personally I'd like my gauntlet made out of cake:

All the infinity stones are lit up! And yes, it's really cake!


Of course I can't include EVERY character from Infinity War here... or can I?

(By Vereen Tjoeng of Delightfully Cake in Bandung, Indonesia)

BOOM. There they are. Thanks, Vereen!


Have a Sweet Sunday, everyone!

I have not seen Infinity War (or a lot of other newer movies either, I live under a rock) but these are some sweet cakes! My granddaughter would flip over the unicorn cake!

I love that most of the cakes were from international bakers. There is so much inspiration out there in the world! <3

These are amazing! My favorite might be the last one. Hard to say, though.

On the last one, I can't quite identify the character in the lower left, with the blue shirt and the black hair. Any ideas?

June 3, 2018 | Unregistered Commenter3Davideo

I believe the one with black hair and a blue shirt is Bucky/Winter Soldier. Also, War Machine seems to be missing (tiny nitpick). These cakes are awesome! I'd feel bad cutting them up.

3Davideo: That's Bucky, aka the winter soldier, aka white wolf.

June 3, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterCarlaj

3Davideo: I think that’s Bucky Barnes, aka The Winter Soldier. :)

June 3, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterMyranda

The one in the lower left is can barely see his silver arm.

June 3, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterC

I'm pretty sure that's Bluebird.

June 3, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterAndrea

Is it Bucky?

June 3, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterSMDS

@3Davideo: I believe that's supposed to be Bucky. The silver arm gives it away, and in the Infinity War promotional images, Bucky wears a cross between his WWII and Winter Soldier clothes - blue shirt under a black jacket.

June 3, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterKate

Blue shirt/black hair- Bucky Barnes?

June 3, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterMom24

I totally have been to Bandung! (I live in the States) Bandung is lovely, and that cake is too!

June 3, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterLisa R

No plot needed for gnawing on Thor's hammer....agreed ! (wink)

"From everyone's Facebook reactions I already know it's a lighthearted, leisurely romp that I think takes place on the beach? Because there's sand everywhere?"

I... yes. Yes, that is exactly right. In fact, you are so right, you should never, ever go see it and just use your imagination, while I laugh over here in the corner at that comment. Or is it cry? Cry. That's what I meant.
