Who You Callin' 'Pro'?

Who You Callin' 'Pro'?
You all know I only feature professionally made Wrecks here on CW. The irony, of course, is that I mistake pro for amateur way more often than the other way around! Heh. So anyway, while I’ve been told that today’s Wrecks are indeed made by real, honest-to-goodness, got-paid-for-their-efforts cake decorators, part of me still refu [...]

Pumpkin Bread is loaded with warm spices and full of delicious pumpkin flavor. This recipe will become one of your absolute favorites!. Hello, there! It’s been a little while since I posted last here on My Baking Addiction and I totally miss you guys. I wish my time away was due to some exotic vacation, but it was mainly because I was nursing [...]

Hey, Bebeh

Hey, Bebeh
“Girl, you lookin’ fine. Why don’t you come over here, and give daddy a lil’ sugar?” “Check it. I’ve got a spiky polar-bear-skin rug for us to lounge on, and some suh-weet champagne glasses the size of water coolers. I even put on my navy blue tighty-whities, ‘cuz I know how much you dig those. [...]

Paleo “Peanut Butter” Cookies (vegan ...

Thumbnail for 10053
These paleo “peanut butter” cookies use sunflower seed butter and have a crisp edge and chewy center! With a vegan option. Includes a video. I know. Peanuts aren’t paleo. These cookies don’t actually use peanut butter but they taste similar to peanut butter cookies! As close as you’re going to get without any act [...]

Cookie cuteness alert! These tiny puppy popsicles make me all kinds of happy. After the kitty cones I just made, I couldn’t help but give dogs their day, too … and these sugar cookies turned out darling. Here’s the cookie cutter I used. It comes in different sizes, but I bought the 2-inch size to make petite pops. And here’s the cookie and ro [...]

Sunday Sweets: Fabulous Faux Flowers

Sunday Sweets: Fabulous Faux Flowers
Hey all! john (the hubby of Jen) here. The next time you see “fresh flowers” on a cake, look more closely. They might actually be gumpaste. I love the yellow and purple flowers on this one. I’m not very good with all the names, but I think they’re daisies. And the photography is stunning, too.   These aren’ [...]

The Weekend Dish: 8/26/2017

Thumbnail for 10046
Is it REALLY the last weekend of August? That seems absurdly impossible because the 4th of July was just, like, two weeks ago, right!? While time continues to hurtle along, I’m enjoying the fact that the temperature never even hit 70 yesterday and on my 10-day forecast there is not a single high above 76… my weather nirvana. IR [...]

9 Oddly Specific Apology Cakes

9 Oddly Specific Apology Cakes
Far be it from me to ever condemn an apology made with cake. However…. Today’s cakes do make me question being quite so specific about it. Hey, I just realized this should have been the #1 apology cake for my Go-Go song!   And maybe these were the accompanying cupcakes? (It says, “Sorry you fell in my pee.”) &n [...]



Cinnamon Coffee Cake with Cream Chees...

This old-fashioned cinnamon coffee cake is baked in a Bundt pan, full of cinnamon swirls, and topped with a simple cream cheese icing. Easy and delicious! Over the last couple of years, I’ve invited all of you to send me your very favorite recipes, and send you did! I’ve received hundreds of recipes from you lovely readers, and I [...]

Getting A Bad Vibe Here

Getting A Bad Vibe Here
Attn Parents: This post is not appropriate for young children. Or adults, really, but I won’t tell if you won’t.   Since I know you’re curious about the behind-the-scenes workings here at Cake Wrecks, I thought I’d provide you with the actual dialogue between me and John while discussing a cake. This cake: R [...]

Better-than-Brownies Chocolate Cookie...

Thumbnail for 10039
Better-Than-Brownies Chocolate Cookies are a chocolate-lover’s dream! Dense and fudgy, just like a brownie, with the portability of a cookie! They’re quick to make and are a great addition to any bake sale, party, or holiday cookie tray. The title essentially says it all. Well, sort of. Having trouble deciding between making cook [...]

General Tso’s Chicken

Thumbnail for 10037
This homemade version of General Tso’s Chicken is the closest recreation I’ve ever found! If this is one of your favorites when you order Chinese takeout, you HAVE to try it at home! It wasn’t until I started dating my husband that I really started to fall in love with Asian cuisine. He introduced me to Thai, sushi, and amaz [...]

The Weekend Dish: 8/19/2017

Thumbnail for 10035
Happy Saturday to you! First, my apologies for any of you who are subscribed to the BEB emails, as we’ve been experiencing some issues this week. A couple of emails failed to go out, and then some of you received duplicates yesterday. My apologies for the inconveniences, I’m working through the tech issues to get the emails straig [...]

The REAL King Cake

The REAL King Cake
Yesterday was the 40th anniversary of Elvis Presley’s death, so I thought I’d feature some appropriate cakes. However, I realize many of our younger readers may not be familiar with The King. So listen up, whipper snappers! Picture an older, more talented, better looking, Southern Justin Bieber wearing a white, bedazzled jumpsuit. [...]
