There are several new reality television shows that portray the glamorous side of the cake decorating world. But Cake Wrecks: When Professional Cakes Go Hilariously Wrong reveals the not-so-perfect side of this sweet business. The hardback book, ($12.99) sprung from author Jen Yates' popular food blog at http://www.cakewrecks.com" Target="_BLANK">http://www.cakewrecks.com. It includes dozens of photos of funny, sad, ugly and sometimes creepy cakes. The grammar goofs are especially funny -- you'll be surprised how many ways one can misspell the words "Happy Birthday." But it's the decorating disasters, like the sexual harassment cake complete with illustration, that will make you ask "What were they thinking?" Keep the kids away from the frosting faux-paus pages. Most of these cakes unintentionally resemble parts of the human anatomy and are sure to make a birthday girl blush.
