When the subject of blogging comes up with friends I sometimes try to tell them about “Cake Wrecks”, a blog on my blog roll that I really enjoy. But, when I start describing it, it is just hard to explain how pictures of unusual, ugly, sometimes gross or just plain dumb cakes (almost all done by commercial bakers) can be so entertaining. Part of the reason is that Jen, the creator of that blog, is hilarious with her commentary on the cakes she shows.
Here’s my totally inadequate description of what Cake Wrecks is all about: She tells her readers to send her pictures of cake disasters they have encountered (she says the marked-down table in grocery store bakeries is a good place to look) and then she posts the pictures and writes really funny comments about them.
When I was looking at this post recently, I thought, “You just can’t describe this kind of stuff to people .. they have to see it!”. So, I suggest you take a look at Cake Wrecks. I predict you will really enjoy it.
Oh, and about once a week, she has some really beautiful or clever cakes on too.
Just like a traffic accident, sometimes these Cake Wrecks are so bad, you feel like you should just look away, but there is a morbid fascination that compells you to slow down and look anyway.
