Just a simple reminder that–in spite of the impressive geeky cakes you regularly see here on GWS–these confectionery efforts don’t always end in spectacular success stories that get trumpeted on the internets.
Sometimes they end in spectacular failures* that get trumpeted on the internets. (Glad to do my part!)
Thanks for the photo goes to lovely GWS reader Izandra, who has mastered the proper form for approaching me: averted eyes, reverent tone, and bearing gifts.
* If you consider 4th place in its category at the L.A. County Fair a “failure.” Quick side note: there were only two other entries in the category. BURN!
