In a similar vein to the LOLCats and I Can Has Cheezburger books, Cake Wrecks by Jen Yates takes a look at when professional cakes go hilariously wrong.

Featuring a selection of cakes with typos, requests which were taken far too literally, icing disasters, frosting that looks like poo and extreme wedding cakes, you'll be laughing, gasping and trying not to be sick. Our favorites included a cake with the word "nothing" iced on (as in a cake with nothing on it), disturbing dead-looking baby cakes and Happy Berthday cakes.

Baking disasters are something that many crafters can relate to, but it really is a case of lost in translation for most of the cakes in the book and the fact that these mistakes were made by professionals just adds to the hilarity.
