Cake Wrecks

Hippo discovered that there are Web sites where people write funny things every day. One of his favorites is called Cake Wrecks. They show what happens when professional cakes go horribly, hilariously wrong:

Q) What do you get if you cross Princess Leia, Dracula, and the Bride of Frankenstein?

A) This.

Hippo was excited to hear that the authors were coming to a bookstore near his hometown. They even brought along some funny cakes to share.

The cakes are so funny that they make him squirt root beer out his nose. I got him a book of Cake Wrecks so he'd stop getting my computer all sticky.

It was exciting to meet a real Web celebrity in person!

Hi Hippo -- I've been in that bookstore, if it's the one I think it is. (You and I coincidentally live pretty much in the same area.)

However, I didn't get the "under neat" part.

Hi Hippo-

So cakewrecks is one of my other blog obsessions in addition to yours! It made my day to see the two join together :)

Uh oh. Hippo's been drooling over all the pretty cakes in the book and developing some wild ideas for his next birthday.

...and wild ideas need practice--lots of practice--to be perfect by my birthday! ...and practice cakes just can't go to waste!
