Did you see Cakewrecks today?

The last cake posted was the winner of the Ideal Home Show cake contest in London this year.

I saw that. The likeness in cake was done really well, but it's so creepy! Maybe it wasn't done that well if it's creepy. Those other wrecks were awful. I wonder what the cake will look like. Isn't it suppose to have thousands of sugar flowers and leaves of white, cream and ivory on it?

I saw it through your link. I'm not sure how to take what cake wrecks is implying? That they think its an incredible sculpted cake that won professional division in the london contest, or if they think its terrible and are enjoying making fun of it by implying Kates shoulder looks like a tasty cut of meat?

The sculpture was carved from fruit cake no less. theres a difficult feat at best. I don't think its truly spot on with facial features but its certainly recognizable as being William and Kate.

Whatever way cake wrecks is thinking, I would have be nice if they waited a few days to post the photo as one of thier cake wrecks. Seems in bad taste to mock it so close to the wedding.

I saw those today and had a good chuckle.
I feel bad for whoever received any of those cake for their wedding, how embarrassing!

Makes me think of the other post going on about not allowing other cakes at a wedding the pro provides the actual wedding cake for. Hopefully someone snuck in cakes behind the bakers backs (the ones on Cakewrecks today), and there was actually something pretty to look at! icon_biggrin.gif Poor brides is right. Some of those techniques may have been cool, had the person known what they were doing, and maybe practiced it first?

It's not Sunday Sweets and they didn't label it as a Special edition Thursday Sweets so, yeah- duh they are poking fun of all of those. I know there is skill in the cake likeness of Will and Kate, but it's eerie and who would even want to cut into that? So I think they are poking at the bad taste if it were an actual wedding cake. The others are just awful. I think I've seen some of them before somewhere.

It's the fact that they were cut off at the shoulders so they have no arms... it looks odd like that. If they had kept the arms it would have been far less awkward looking.

Cakewrecks is all about the failure to execute. The technique may be there, but if you can't execute the concept - yikes. That's what happened with these. Too bad.

Every time I look at CW I don't understand how those bakers can in good conscious charge or even allow some of those "cakes" out of their kitchen.

That Will and Kate cake is freaky.
