Can We Calculate How To Be At Peace Inside?

This week’s Friday Lounge post is dedicated to one of my favorite blogs/websites, Cake Wrecks.

If you’ve never heard of Cake Wrecks, do yourself a huge favor and visit www.cakewrecks.com right now.  (And no, I wasn’t paid to write this.  That would be awesome, but I just genuinely enjoy this website.)

Cake Wrecks is all about showcasing the ultimate fails when it comes to cakes.  I can spend hours on this blog, and will actually start laughing out loud (or, more accurately, laughing like a fucking maniac) while I’m reading it.

There are the simple mistakes (hey, anyone could do this … Right?):

The pathetic attempts at creativity:

The completely inappropriate (it’s hard to tell if it’s intentional or not in some cases, though I think this one had to be … Unless the bakery just decided to add a random “don’t” in there):

The “oh-my-God-I’m-so-glad-this-didn’t-happen-on-my-wedding-day” cakes:

This could also fall under the above category, though it’s almost worse.  This is a perfect example of hoping for one thing and getting something very very different.

What they asked for (pretty, right?):

What they got (this made me laugh like a lunatic!):

Then there are the hideously ugly (and oftentimes disgusting):

And the really disgusting (not to mention disturbing … This seriously makes me want to vomit everywhere):

They aren’t all this bad, though.  Cake Wrecks also features some really beautiful, amazing cakes now and then.  You know, to restore our faith that not all bakeries will fuck your shit up.
