If you've never read the blog (why the heck not???) you can still pick up the book and enjoy it just as much as fans of the blog. A must have for those times when you're feeling down and the sky's are gray.
Well, his birthday was coming up, and I wasn't sure what to get him, so I thought that he would like a new version of his favorite book. He absolutely loved it! He kept going on and on about all the jokes in it. Keep in mind, he is 11, but extremely intelligent. He loved getting the little jokes, and spotting the grammar mistakes. As weird as it sounds, I think it helped him realize why grammar is so important, except with a fun twist.
If you have never had looked through one of these books, you will see what I mean. Some have a funny play on words, and others are just a downright disaster, or completely bizarre. It is entertaining to see the ways that cake orders are interpreted, and the Cake Wreck books are always a good conversation piece for company.
If the need arises, I will definitely purchase again-but I do enjoy the Cake Wrecks Books.
As always there is plenty of witty commentary to go along with these unholy pastries, comedy which reaches its peak in the beloved chapter "Santa Scare Tactics," featuring Santas varying from the merely disfigured, to constipated Santa (she's totally right; see page 151,) and finally into the realm of the truly demented and terrifying. (Don't believe me? See page 144!)
"Cake Wrecks" mocks these disfigured but tasty treats, yet owes its very existence to them: Yates never forgets that, and is never mean-spirited in her humor. While it's true these cakes are wholly disastrous, dessert has never been funnier.
Boy was I wrong.
This thing is hilarious. My coworkers and I (all guys in our 20s) cried and wheezed and guffawed.
It starts out with spelling mistakes which are pretty funny.
Then it gets to satanic looking, fire-breathing turkey things and demon-possessed Santas...
And then there are cakes where the baker tried to make reindeer or footballs or something and it just looks like they squatted over the cake and took a huge dump. This is where I lost it and couldn't breathe. And I don't really like scat humor.
Buy.This.Book! (Especially for the price - and get the regular edition too - it's even funnier and makes a great gift set)

I bought this as a Christmas gift for my mom, and she loves it. She decorates cakes as a hobby and couldn't stop laughing at the wrecks in this book.Published 6 months ago by Tribal9
Outstanding, clever, well-written. If you like James Lileks' works ("Gallery Of Regrettable Food" etc.) then you'll enjoy Jen Yates' "Cake Wrecks" series.Published 8 months ago by Amazon Customer
