It's Here! It's Here!

Long-time readers of this blog already know that we are big fans of Cake Wrecks. The blog can be a little slow to load*, but it's worth it! The night I first discovered it, I stayed up way too late reading the archives and laughing until my ribs ached. You all know how much we need laughter lately. That's why we've been eagerly awaiting the book, which promises "over 150 Cake Wrecks, including 75 percent never-before-seen content." It's here!

For you newcomers, Jen explains: "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. Now, don't you have a photo you want to send me? ;)"

Look at the blog. Read the archives. Buy the book. Laugh your butt off. You'll be glad you did!

*Since its recent redesign, it has a little too much content on its home page, IMHO. But if you have a good connection, you might not even notice. If you paste http://cakewrecks.blogspot.com/ into Google Reader, new material appears quickly enough, even over dialup! If you're a bit puzzled by the obscure jokes in current posts about the book promotion tour, most of them refer to past Wrecks. Read the archives. You're sure to find something to tickle your funny bone.

Have you been following the "World Tour"? Only they could "wreck" a tour so badly! I totally wish I could have been there for their Chicago stop!
