Melinda over there in England sent me a couple of emails recently.
#1: she told me about her mishaps in the latest Lazy Bakers assignment, and sort of warned me off of it. It was the Pecan Toasting Bread Thingy, and I just may heed her advice. I'm not making any promises--I might just try out of sheer stubbornness.
#2: she alerted me to a freaking good website that is now going into my blogroll: Cake Wrecks.
Cake Wrecks posts about these appalling cakes baked by "professionals." There are ridiculous grammar mistakes, terrible color choices, poor excuses for piping, and at least one amazingly sunken wedding cake. And these are from professionals! People paid for these!
I love Cake Wrecks. Thanks Melinda!!
