Thomas sent me this link earlier and I feel that it's IMPERATIVE to share it with everyone.
This is an Entire Blog devoted to cake decorating disasters. I have laughed so hard today that my spleen almost exploded. It's now listed under our links to awesome and you can also visit it here.
My hat (or neon wig) goes off to Jen for her diligence as the cake wreck police.
A side note: I do not mean to malign my fellow bakers; I make my share of mistakes. In the words of Jane Austen, "for what do we live but to make sport for our neighbors and laugh at them in our turn?"
