Fun on Friday #38: Have your cake and...

Many schools have a very fine tradition of organising cake days. Money is pooled, cakes are delivered and calories are consumed. Whether or not it was cake day in your school today, I hope you enjoy this Fun on Friday site: Cake Wrecks.

Cake Wrecks is a blog which describes the cakes it features as: "...any cake that is unintentionally sad, silly, creepy, inappropriate...". It is a celebration of mistakes and horrors perpetuated by professional cake decorators.

I suspect that the Creative Grammar, Cake Wrecks: Handwriting Horrors and Mithspellings categories will be of particular interest to the teaching profession.

I did initially think that the odd spelling mistake on a cake wasn't too much of a disaster - after all, you're going to eat the evidence anyway. However, some of the cakes featured effectively define the opposite of the phrase "good enough to eat". :-)

What's your favourite Cake Wreck?
