Cake Wrecks

I don’t make “fancy” decorated cakes – ever. Despite my lack of interest in that area I have become very drawn to the Cake Wrecks blog! It is absolutely hilarious! (be sure to read the commentary and not just look at the pictures!) There are also some amazing cakes on there like this Lego Batman Cake created by Elisa Straus over at Confetti Cakes - WOW!

I would love to try to make cute cakes for my boys, obviously I will never ever be at the skill level to make the Batman cake, but I see that she Elisa has a new book that looks very inspiring. It is called "Confetti Cakes For Kids: Delightful Cookies, Cakes, and Cupcakes from New York City's Famed Bakery"

Here is what the product description says at Amazon:

“Elisa Strauss of Confetti Cakes has created confections as elaborate as a platter of sushi, a wine bottle in a crate, and a designer handbag. Now she focuses her talents on her younger fans with this enchanting collection of cakes, cookies, and cupcakes for kids. Strauss starts readers off with 20 delicious recipes and all the basic techniques needed to complete any project in the book. Then she offers step-by-step instructions for 24 jaw-dropping designs that can become the centerpiece of any celebration. Projects span the imagination--from a charming sock monkey, to an MP3 player, to playful hula gingerbread girls and boys--and will appeal to anyone looking for the perfect way to thrill a child with a delectable, spectacular creation.”
