When I’m down, I’ll try anything to pull myself out of a blue mood…except eat a whole gallon of Ben and Jerry’s ice cream (well only sometimes). I sometimes watch funny cat videos or call my BFF. But when we both discovered Cake Wrecks, that is an INSTANT mood booster for both of us.
I came across this website a long time ago, I forget how I even found it, but it highlights the absurdness of the cake decorating industry gone horribly wrong and bakers who achieve amazing results with fondant. But that’s not the main reason why this site can turn my depressed outlook into happy time and sometimes trigger my poor BFF’s asthma attacks.
The other component is the author of the site’s commentary. She is witty, sarcastic, and says what everyone is thinking about these cake disasters. You not only laugh so hard you pretty much pee your pants but you also don’t need to worry about the calories because you’re not eating the cakes you’re just looking at them. And who doesn’t love cake anyway?
I will give you a taste (pun intended) of what you can expect when you visit Cake Wrecks (Hint: click on the photos to read the commentary. I know they’re small, sorry. Just do it!)
The absolutely BEST posts are ones where she compares cakes that were the inspiration (the dream) and what the person actually got (the reality). I was telling my BFF, when the baker who delivers the “reality” cake to the customer do they think it looks good or do they just go, “Well, this is as good as it gets.” Mind boggling!
So if you find yourself in a blue mood simply click on over to Cake Wrecks where your cares will be frosted away and you’ll be a little more enlightened about the dangers that lurk around the corner of every piped pile of roses. Enjoy!
