The ministry of silly cakes

There's a really fun blog called Cake Wrecks that you should spend some time poking around. The subtitle of the blog is "When professional cakes go horribly, hilariously wrong." The blog owner, Jen, has been posting pictures of aforementioned hilarious cakes since May 2008. By her definition, 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.
The wrecks fall into several categories including Beyond Bizarre, Creepy Cakes, Oh-So-Ugly and one of my favorites, Literal LOLs. In this last category are the cakes that have messages written on them as requested over the phone by the client, and as badly interpreted by the bakery employee at the other end.

Case in point is the photo above. The client had requested a message reading: "Phillip . . . woo-hoo!" Because it was over the phone, the bakery guy heard the words "dot, dot, dot" as something else...
