Not all cakes are made alike, and yesterday I showed you what they should look like. For a really good lesson in what they shouldn’t look like (as well as assorted stuff that nightmares are made of), visit Cake Wrecks. You will either laugh or cry, but if you’ve ever baked anything (or tried to), I think the former is more likely. However, I can’t guarantee anything, and if you’re offended by awful baking or awful customer service, viewer discretion is advised. Here’s the (ahem) delightful creation that started it all:

Okay! Well! Now that that’s out of the way, let’s drool over some bakewear by Bakelove.
Unfortunately, Bakelove is not yet a WSW candidate.
A moment of silence for the enthusiastic bakers of South Africa please. (…) Hey, maybe soon!
On the other hand, a wonderful Etsy store that DOES ship here (WSW Alert!) is Everyday is a Holiday. Just look at their amazing artworks!
(These are a deliciously foodie way of saying what everyone else is saying, namely Keep Calm And Carry On.)
My favourites are definitely the cupcake tiers and the layer cake quartet!
All images are from their Etsy store. They also have a (highly inspiring!) Flickr photostream and a blog.
And to finish off this very cakey post, I’m going to share with you the beautiful card my sister mailed me on Monday. Don’t you just LOVE getting snail mail? It’s so much better than e-mail! (Except when it’s bills, of course. And it’s mostly bills.)
