Website of the Week: Cake Wrecks

You may have seen the book "Cake Wrecks" at the bookstore or library, but did you know that the creators of the book have their own website that features different wrecks each day? 

If you ever had a cake wreck in your life, there is something comforting knowing that you are not alone.

What is a Cake Wreck? According to Jen Yates, who started the blog in 2008 says, "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."

Here you will find all kinds of disasters like wedding cakes gone wrong, princess cakes that need some work, scary baby shower cakes, cakes that where the decorator took the request literally and more.

Yates began her blog one night when she was bored and honestly never believed that anyone would ever read it.
