Cake Wrecks is one of those websites you go back to time and time again because it is … well it is simply fantastic. The sheer skill, and creativity that goes into the cakes is pretty amazing. The tagline on the website is “When professional cakes go horribly, hilariously wrong.” These guys know their stuff. For those of us with limited decorating ability this site will just make you feel insecure, but also very in awe of the skill in the cakes. Other people’s efforts will have you rolling round in tears of laughter.
The last ‘decorated’ cake I made was for some friends who got married and the cake did not go according to plan. I made a White Cake (but not that one mine had finely diced blanched almonds in it), one of the most yummy cakes known to man or woman, but icing the thing was a whole new mission. I can make a cake alright but icing the thing in an attractive manner is somewhat, no completely, beyond me. Luckily the photos of that poor cake are lost forever in the limbo of a laptop which will never work again – unless I accidentally with misplaced pride saved them to Flickr.
