Sweet Mistakes

We are not a nation of excellent spellers. In this amusing N.Y. Times article, David Hochman writes about a new book called Cake Wrecks and some of the errors that make their way into icing. Hochman writes:
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.
It's a fun article.
