Cake Wrecks, by Jen Yates

Haaaaaaave you read Cake Wrecks? No? Well, read this first, ’cause it’s short, and once you click on that link I can’t be held responsible for your lack of productivity over the next several hours/days/weeks.

The book version is perfect for my hypothetical coffee table (I should really get one of these) ā€” it’s small, it’s mostly pictures, and it is hilarious. There are cakes on which the baker has written the customer’s instructions, like a white cake with (“Olympics Rings”) written in red. There are cake decorations that look like poos and cake decorations that look like phalluses (Chrome informs me that “phalluses” is not a word, but “phalli” just looks silly). There are misspellings, like “Heppy Bertty” and “I Lave You.” There are wedding cakes gone horribly, terribly wrong.

A few of the cakes in this book I’ve seen in my browsing of the web site, but the introduction informs me that there are never-before-seen cakes as well. Yay! There are also some funny cake stories, in case you start to forget how to read after looking at all the terrible cakes.

Okay. Go look at some wrecks now, but don’t say I didn’t warn you.
