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.
cake wrecks is amazing and i'm counting on some cakes from you for milestones in my life. so you better be ready to roll out that fondant and make it happen.
