Here’s another field trip for you guys: www.cakewrecks.com. I just discovered this site, which is apparently pretty popular. Late to the party as usual, I guess. (It was a winner of the 2008 Bloggies.)
Since I love the Cake decorating challenges on the Food Network so much (not to mention Ace of Cakes), finding a whole blog full of wonderful and awful (but mostly awful, which is the fun part) cake decorating disasters was a whole MORNING wasted. Howeve, I did learn there’s a name for the kind of cake that I like. A topsy turvy cake.
I’ve always thought they look like something out of a Dr. Seuss illustration, which makes this one just about perfect.
(The caption at cakewrecks says this was made by The People’s Cake for a contest. A contest of COOL.
I was getting married again, I would TOTALLY have one, as topsy and turvy as they could make it.
Maybe not this much, though:
But my favorite cake themed discovery on Cake Wrecks has got to be this Lego person re-enactment of Eddie Izzard’s "Cake or Death" bit. Funny as heck anyway, but somehow even more so with Lego People.
So here’s your questions of the day:
Your perfect Event cake: Traditional or Whimsical?
Chocolate or Vanilla (Or other)?
Cake or Death?
(I’ve made myself very hungry… for cake.)
