Let them eat cake!

And so we did.

Today, Jen and John from Cake Wrecks, that hilarious blog, visited Ottawa on their "Winter Underlined" book tour for their latest book:
In the lower-right corner the flash reads,
"When Prefessional Holiday Cakes Go Hilariously Wrong."
Yes, they had a typo on the cover of the book.
The publisher tried to cover it with a sticker.
I peeled my sticker off IMMEDIATELY because
I knew there was ironic goodness Under Neat That.
Emily and her friend came with me to the event. First there was the pre-show slide show. Emily and her friend aren't followers of the blog, so they hadn't seen most of the cake disasters, and there are some really side-splitting ones. (I learned today that one of their fans actually laughed so hard that he passed out.) Jen and john (who spells his name with a lower-case J) could almost be stand-up comedians, they have such fun banter and good timing.

There was, of course, the wreck-plica contest (they'll post pictures later), but I forgot my camera, so all I got were a few cell-phone pictures.
Such a cute couple. They smiled at me.
(I don't get out much.)
And one of my friends also showed up. She brought a real camera, and I accidentally photobombed her picture. Sorry, Aliza.

My parking meter expired so I didn't have time to get my purchases signed. [pout!] But it was a fun afternoon nevertheless.

  1. Yay you! I have spent much time laughing really hard at the wrecks, or actually at the wreck descriptions. I'm glad you got to go.


What did you think? Any comments?
