The Icing on the Cake?

cakeOK, this one is just for fun, you ever see a typo in a book, newspaper, or, well, ever? How about one on your cake? Yep. Apparently it happens more often than you think, at least that is what The NY Times would have us believe.

SOMEONE who decorates cakes for a living should possess certain skills. Spelling is an important one. For example, success is not quite as sweet when the inscription reads, “Contralulation’s Ronan.” An eye for color helps, too. Piped dark brown swirls are never a good idea on a cake dotted with plastic farm animals. Finally, a few words about customer service: When someone requests that nothing be written on the cake, “NOTHING” should not be written on the cake.
