This blog is purely a shout out! I came across a hilarious blog a few weeks ago and I felt compelled to share. It’s called Cake Wrecks, and as the name suggests, it is a blog about some of the hilarious, awkward, misspelled, ugly and just plain bizarre cakes that have been professionally created. Then people send in pics, and voila! A hilarious blog is born!
I know a thing or two about professional baking. A few years ago, after working in the same day spa for 6 years and being completely burned out, I thought that I might try my hand at being a wedding cake decorator. In fact, I met my husband at a “Cakes for Catering” week long class in Chicago! In fact, those pictures I selflessly posted are of a birthday cake I made during the class and of ME graduating, looking bleak, next to that pineapple topped monstrosity that we created. Well, suffice it to say, after I did two wedding cakes professionally, I realized that baking wedding cakes for pay was NOT fun and it was VERY stressful. End of career.
But, I still love baking, I still love cake, and I think that Cake Wrecks is the funniest blog I have come across! Plus, I know what it feels like to turn out a cake wreck. Seriously.
