So the lovely folks that bring you Cake Wrecks stopped by Changing Hands in Tempe AZ on their book tour recently and my friend Nic and I went!
We were so excited!!! There were some cool slide shows of some of the worst/best cakewrecks:

There was also a mini cake-wrecks contest being held for some pretty sweet prizes, including the ever elusive carrot jockey necklace! Nic and I baked and decorated to recreate some of our favorite wrecks from the blog. Here are Nic's entries:

And my entry:

There were so many great cake wreck entries:
Here was the winner with her awesome little wreck:
And there were cakes for all of us Wreckerators to enjoy too! They even had vegan cake ^_^
That suitcase is a CAKE!!! Amazing.
Nic braved the crowd and grabbed us some slices of *vegan* cake!! (Which ended up being my dinner that night, hooray for cake for dinner!)

My slice of vegan cake YUM!!!

All in all it was a great time, even if our cake wrecks didn't win, and as a bonus, my mini wreck was featured in the CakeWrecks blog!

Stay Spooky,

Pili: Thanks for birthday wishes! I hope you baked some cake ^_^

Sheika: I sculpted the top half from clay, baked it, painted it and assembled it (the arms are on hinges so that she can hold her frosting bouquet!!) and then I baked and decorated the "skirt" half from actual edibles. Thanks also for the Happy Birthdays!
