Reader's Annotation: In the city within a city, what happens when a crime is committed?
Summary: The first book by Jen Yates who runs a blog about fantastic mess-ups of cake decorators. This book gives examples of many different concepts such as Cupcake Cakes (which are a no-no)
My Evaluation: Jen Yates has a fantastical sense of her audience and her writing style is just awesome. This book is full of amazingly bad cakes and a couple good ones for good measure. She tells the story of how her blog came to be and her overall wit is second to none. If you've never read Jen's blog then you're missing out on great fun! Her books are the same way
