Overview

A holiday-themed follow-up to the New York Times best-seller Cake Wrecks, Wreck the Halls features over 150 all new four-color, what-were-they-thinking cake wrecks from author and award-winning blogger Jen Yates. Cakewrecks.com receives over 4.6 million page views per month and is ranked one of the top humor blogs on the web.

Award-winning blogger Jen Yates has focused on confectionery calamities at her popular Web site www.cakewrecks.blogspot.com 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.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Yates, author of the 2009 New York Times best seller Cake Wrecks and founder of the blog of the same name, once again brings confectionary hilarity and horror. All photos are of commercially available cakes and decorated baked goods, and many make you worry about the quality of your local bakery. Commentary is light and suggestive rather than explicit, though the accompanying photographs often speak louder than words. Light reading for the hectic holiday season.—Katie Dunneback, Bettendorf P.L., IA

    Highly Recommended!

    As always, the Cake Wrecks crew has delivered a collection, this time seasonal, of cake disasters that will leave you giggling, chortling, snorting, guffawing with laughter. Caution - do not read this book while drinking anything, unless you want it coming out your nose! Can't wait for the next installment of cake wrecks!
