Cake Wrecks

A blog all about cakes - mostly wrecks, but my favorite days are the perfections.  Jen started the blog Cake Wrecks - when Professional Cakes Go Horribly, Hilariously Wrong in 2008 and I've been watching it about half that long.  She showcases terribly decorated cakes caused by mis-understood instructions, poor spelling, poor sense of design and some overall bad choices.

Since today is St. Patrick's day, I'll borrow some examples from Jen that fit the theme.

Like this one in 2011. These poor cupcakes never really stood a chance with this heavy handed piper.

Her Tradition for Sundays is Sunday Sweets.  This means on Sunday she posts photos of amazingly decorated cakes and I'm jealous of the talent of each and every one of their bakers.

On today's page for instance, you'll see some amazing Irish themed cakes & cookies... like this one. Amazing colors & piping.  Each of the stunning works of art showcased on Sunday, also comes with a link to more info on the baker.

Two combine both the amazing and the oh so sad, another theme is called Missed Marks.  This is a feature where the customer presents the baker with a photo of a cake (or design/logo) they would like to take home for themselves.  Very often the results are just sad.
