Finally came across a copy of
Cake Wrecks: When Professional Cakes Go Hilariously Wrong by Jen Yates

yesterday. It was the last copy in the bookstore, so I snatched it up.

I think it would be an excellent stocking stuffer sort of gift for  
cooks or anyone that
has ever baked a cake for an event. I
started looking through it
and started laughing. James takes it away from me and he's soon laughing
We kept passing back and forth last evening.

It all leaves one wondering why people would leave the store or bakery  
these cakes but
anyway as the description says "From the creator of the ultrapopular
blog CakeWrecks.com, here are the worst cakes ever, including the
ugly, the silly, the downright creepy, the unintentionally sad or
suggestive, and the just plain funny. With witty commentary and behind-
the-scenes tidbits, Cake Wrecks will ensure that you never look at a
cake the same way again."

You can look inside the book on Amazon to see what it is all about or
you can check out the
