Here is our pick of some of the best projects on CO+K last week:

Sew mini wallets, paint pretty Christmas baubles, make a spooky spider wreath from Halloween, use a map to cover a shelf, turn a scarf in to a skirt, dress up with bat ears, crochet cute flowers, bend a wire lamp shade, sew a scottie dog plushie, make your own crochet hooks, beautify yourself with an easy body scrub and rosewater, sew some felt Christmas decorations, knit mango mitts, make a clutch from tissue paper and revamp a sweater in to a drape front cardigan.

These personalised paper dolls are such a cute idea.

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.

You can pick up a copy of the book from Andrews McMeel now.
