Cake Wrecks: When Professional Cakes Go Hilariously Wrong

by

Cake Wrecks: When Professional Cakes Go Hilariously Wrong Cover

 

Staff Pick

In this day and age, any book that can make me laugh out loud earns top o' the list. Some of the pictures in this book are hilarious in themselves, but Yates adds captions with humor ranging from subtle to over-the-top. Keep Cake Wrecks handy for when you need a little lift.

Since May 2008, Jen Yates has been blogging about such confectionery calamities at her popular Web site CakeWrecks.com, winner of the 2008 Blogger's Choice Award for Best Humor Blog, and three 2009 Weblog awards (Bloggies) for Best Writing on a Blog, Best New Blog, and Best Food Blog. Yates now offers up this inspired photo collection with over 150 Cake Wrecks, including 75 percent never-before-seen content.
