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? ;)

10 Sweets For All Moms, But Especially Mine

Happy Mother's Day, all moms-but-especially-mine!

(Vkusno Bar, Russia)

You moms are the cat's meow; totally paw-some.

 

And while all moms are different, I bet a lot of you could come together over donuts and coffee:

(Sharp Tooth Treats, Canada)

Or if not, over cookies of donuts and coffee. Because seriously, how cute are these??

 

Do you have a Queen Mum in your life? Because this cake is fit for royalty:

(Cakes By Kasib, UK)

I call my mother-in-law "Mum," and she proudly displays a pair of red stiletto heels that she used to wear on a shelf in her living room. (She's currently in her seventies.) So yeah, this cake is perfect for her. :D

 

It's also hard to go wrong with a box of chocolates, no matter what the occasion:

(Amanda's Little Cake Boutique, UK)

My mom especially appreciates chocolate after a long hard day of not having any chocolate.
Same, Mom. Same.

 

This next beauty was created to support The Global Fund, particularly the fight for healthy moms and babies:

(Mad Hen Cakes, Australia)

Perfect for Mother's Day, right? I love the way the red ribbons form her skirt.

 

While we're talking moms and health care: did you know today is also International Nurses Day? This one's dear to my heart because my mom, Sharon, was an ICU RN most of my childhood, 'til a bad car accident left her unable to work. I never really understood what Mom did until much later in life, and I'm still in awe. Plus Mom is still very much our family nurse, ha, so here's a sweet cake for ALL the nurses, moms, and nurse moms out there:

(Karolyn's Kakes, Pennsylvania)

Thank you, nurses! You are all heroes who deserve cake today. :)

 

Now back to this adorableness:

(Yashina Olesya, Russia)

Bear hugs!

 

And some bunnies to love!

(Hey Cake Tripoli, Libya)

I love this new clear lollipop trend with embedded flowers, btw. So sweet.

 

One more cutie bearing gifts:

(CakeHeaven by Marlene, Malta)

 

And finally, a sweet mother daughter cake in my favorite colors:

(Kek Couture, Turkey)

Teal and orange! Woot woot!
I love the soft pink roses in the frames, too, and the family locket is a sweet touch.

 

Happy Mother's Day again, moms, and happy Sunday to everyone else! However you're spending your day today, here's hoping it's extra Sweet.

Just In Time For Mother's Day: Ten Uterus Cakes

This Mother's Day, why not surprise mom with something REALLY surprising?

"It's supposed to be a uterus.

"SURPRISE!!"

 

Yep, what could thrill Momther more than an edible version of the thing you broke on your way out? (Er...sorry again about that, Mom.) And since uteri come in so many flavors (ew), here are nine more "inspirational" uterus cakes to really get those creative juices flowing. (Ewwwwsorry.)

 

Evil jester laughs at your feeble attempts to serve ice cream:

See it? SEE IT??

 

Hunchbacked Basketball Player Can Dribble No Longer:

Aw. Playa' got served.

 

Bullwinkle? Is that you?

Ok, while I agree with Bonnie Burton that everything really is better with googly eyes, I still have to draw the line at making letters out of staples. Yowch.

 

"But, Oh-Cakey-Goddess-of-Most-High-Snark-and-Random-Sprinkles" you're saying, because you're finally using my proper title, "What I REALLY want to see is a tiny cake crawfish inside a cake uterus!"

Well, ok, but only because you asked politely.

What's that? You want two slices? Yeesh. You're so shellfish.

 

Hey, remember that time when Dobby from Harry Potter tried to stifle a really, really big sneeze?

"Accio CHOOIEE!!"

(I know; that was a real "light bulb moment" for me, too.)

 

Gosh, all this pink is getting kind of monotonous, don't you think?

Here, this should help:

And that's how everyone learned that Jeannie was actually born a Smurf.

 

And now, a little "poetry:"

Q: "Why did the lady blush during her sonogram?"

A: "Because she saw a fallopian!"

***

***

Ahem.

 

Some people give their uterus a cute little pet name:

(I'm seeing a cross between a Snork and a Fraggle. Please tell me I'm not the only one.)

Lola? Aw, that's sweet.

I bet Crampy McClots-a-Lot could kick Lola's butt.

 

And finally, the balloon-animal uterus you never knew you needed:

You know, I never thought I'd like a uterus cake, but I've really taken a shine to this one.
