New hardcover book, published 2011, 220 pages, colour photos throughout.

A hilarious new collection of holiday-inspired dessert disasters by Jen Yates, award-winning blogger and author of the New York Times bestseller Cake Wrecks

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.

What is a Cake Wreck?

A Cake Wreck is any cake that is unintentionally sad, silly, creepy, inappropriate - you name it. A Wreck is not necessarily a poorly-made cake; it's simply one I find funny, for any of a number of reasons. Anyone who has ever smeared frosting on a baked good has made a Wreck at one time or another, so I'm not here to vilify decorators: Cake Wrecks is just about finding the funny in unexpected, sugar-filled places.

About the author

Despite the daily cake carnage she chronicles, she really does like cake and the people who make them, especially if they share.
