Over the Counter #89

Got your holiday baking done yet? Well Wreck the Halls : Cake Wrecks Gets Festive by Jen Yates definitley caught my eyes as it passed over my library and under my scanner this week. It may or may not give you inspiration, but it will give you a laugh!

From the publisher Andrews McMeel:

"Award-winning blogger Jen Yates has focused on confectionery calamities at her popular Web site since May 2008, while her debut book, Cake Wrecks: When Professional Cakes Go Hilariously Wrong, quickly climbed the charts to become a New York Times best-seller within weeks of its release. Now, Yates is back with Wreck the Halls, a fresh mix of fan favorites and plenty of never-before-seen holiday wreckage.
From thankless Thanksgiving turkeys and confusing Christmas conundrums, to less-than-happy Hanukkah horrors and New Year's meltdowns, Wreck the Halls has an icing-smeared disaster for every occasion. With additional chapters on Black Friday, family communication, and navigating the murky waters of politically correct cake greetings ("Winter!"), Wreck the Halls combines Yates's signature blend of wit and sarcasm with the most hilarious frosting fails this side of winter solstice. Find sweet relief from the holiday madness (not to mention plenty of laughs) with Wreck the Halls."

(Over the Counter is a regular feature at A Bookworm's World. I've sadly come the realization that I cannot physically read every book that catches my interest as it crosses over my counter at the library. But... I can mention them and maybe one of them will catch your eye as well. See if your local library has them on their shelves!)

I subscribe to the Cake Wreck blog, and it never fails to amuse me. Some of the cakes are just unbelievable.
