Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

I just finished reading a very funny article in the New York Times about cake wrecks. I was unfamiliar with the term prior to reading the article. Apparently there are sites that document ugly or mis-captioned cakes and they have a loyal following out there. The web site mentioned in the article is called CakeWrecks. It has photos of cakes of all types and trust me, many of them you would not consider eating. The CakeWreck site only posts photos of professionally made cakes which is both sadder and more astounding if you think about it. Jen Yate’s the blog’s creator says she gets around 50 cake photo submissions a day. Wow, that is a lot of culinary screw ups. The verbiage is a major chuckle but after looking at the site there are some very vivid visual disasters as well. For example read the caption on the real cake that I recreated in the attached graphic. If you have nothing else to look at today, check it out the blog CakeWrecks, it made me LOL.
