Calling All Wreckporters!

Tuesday, December 2, 2008

Greetings, Wrecks fans!

This announcement is for any and all of you who have EVER submitted a Wreck photo that you own. If you would like to have your photo considered for inclusion in Cake Wrecks, the book (yep, you read that right - amazing what people will print these days, eh?) then I need to have your photo permissions. To grant that permission is really easy: all you have to do is go here and RESUBMIT your photo. Be sure to send the largest size photo you have. And that's it!

Again, make sure you ONLY submit photos that you own all rights to: that means nothing you found on the 'net, friend's myspace pages, etc.

Stay tuned for updates as I have them, and keep sending in those Wrecks! Thanks, all!

Hey that's awesome.

Yesterday was my birthday, and my husband came home with what I guessed was a cake from Wal Mart when I saw him putting it into the fridge.

For the next 3 hours while finishing work, making dinner, etc, I daydreamed about how bad the decorating or inscription might be, and was ready to run for the camera after dinner.

Sure enough, it came out of the fridge perfectly spelled, with proportional handwriting for the inscription, evenly spaced and in a reasonable color.

Life just isn't fair.
(It was really yummy too! Chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream)

Congratulations on the book deal! It is the bloggy version of marrying the prince!

PaperAddictJenn said...

Congratulations on your rise to stardom!

Wendy said...

Awesome! That's wonderful news, congratulations!

Mari said...

That is wonderful! Congratulations!

Saigo said...

Long-time lurker, first-time poster... A book!!! Congrats! Wow, that is amazing. You deserve it.

Voix said...

Awesome! Congratulations!

Jo Ann said...

Are you publishing this yourself (through lulu or something) or is it with a publishing company?

I'm curious because I work for a pub co and am trying to convince those above me that your site would make an awesome book. I'm hoping that no one beat me to the punch!

Rachel T. said...

Congratulations, Jen! That's awesome and well-deserved! I can't wait to see it.

Jen said...

Jo Ann,

There are several publishers bidding as we speak, so e-mail me if you'd like further details. It may be too late, though; bidding closes tomorrow afternoon.

I'll be first in line to buy it. I'll probably camp outside of Borders waiting for it with a CCC for sustenance.

MommySusan1 said...

First of all congratulations on your book! It must be thrilling!

Second, I was wondering if you had to get permission from the person that made the cakes, not the people that took the pictures? I would hate for you to get in trouble.

Michelle said...

Contralulation's Jen!!! :-D I'll be sure to buy a copy!

Contemporary Troubadour said...

How exciting! I've been hooked since my friend sent me a link to the bound-footed cake (it's a long story).

There's an award I'm passing along for your site over on my page (see below). It's not as awesome as a book deal, but it's some humble recognition :).

Jen....I want my copy autographed, pleeze...! ;-p

thephrog said...

Hey! Congrats on the book! :)

Flartus said...

Not only a book, but a bidding war! Wow, you sure have come a long way, baby.

And we expect a fantastic cake at the launch party, btw. That is, a wrecktastic cake.

Gregg said...

I have been laughing hysterically at the wrecks since I found the site through VSL! I now work at Johnson & Wales University (a place that may or may not turn out some wreckers ;-)) so I recommend the blog to all the Culinary and Baking & Pastry students, so they can see what NOT to do!! Congratulations on the book and I will want a autographed "under neat" copy!! Keep the comments coming!!!!!

Congrats!

I really need a wreck fix though...we haven't had one since Saturday!

Justfrosting said...

I am so going to buy this book. Print lots and lots...

Deborah Godin said...

I haven't submitted any cake photos (although I did make & decorate a cake for a friend recently, who put a photo of it on her blog, and which, mercifully, hasn't shown up here yet) But, I can't wait to buy the book. And I'll see the movie, too! Your blog is better than buttercream with chocolate sprinkles.

Katie said...

I'm so excited for my very own cake wrecks book! You make me laugh every day!

Christine aka Mistress of Cakes said...

I'm so excited for you! You bring such joy to people sharing these crappy creations! Now its time to conquer all media! Congrats...you are very lucky!

Hello,

Long time lurker here. First off, congratulations! having a Cake Wrecks book will be fantastic.

Secondly, a word of caution perhaps, I've seen so many of my favourite websites lose all steam and eventually die from getting a book deal. It always seems that making a book ends up taking so much more time and effort than expected, that it becomes impossible for the authors to keep updating their sites at the same time. Please don't let this happen to Cake Wrecks, it's one of my favourite sites!

Margeaux said...

You should make one of those daily calendars where each day is a new wreck picture with a hilarious caption underneath!

Jo Ann said...

I guess we miss out! My company works very slooooowly. :/

Good luck in your endeavors!

justdawn said...

I was hoping to be able to bring you some wrecks from Germany...but alas; there are none to be found!

I am still sad that you never posted my Hooter Birthday cake on here;) heh
