Feb. 3, 2009 – Let me preface this post by saying it's not a dig at cake decorators; in fact, there are some serious lessons to be learned – namely, improved communication skills and awareness of new technology – from this hilariously disastrous example of taking a customer's request way too literally.

The story linked above originated at the Cake Wrecks blog, which collects and comments on photos of cakes gone terribly wrong. It's great for a laugh, especially on days like today, while we curse those darned groundhogs for seeing their shadows yet again. If you're a cake decorator, bookmark this blog right now as a cautionary tale. Here's hoping you never wind up among the Cake Wrecks.
