(Boing Boing)   Bakery bans photography in attempt to prevent their cakes appearing on "that bad cake site". Good thing nobody ever considers buying the cakes and taking them home   (boingboing.net) divider line 51

So banning photography gets people to buy shiatty cakes. Who's the failure there?

This kind of thing happens now and then with dedicated craftspeople who are too busy to look at the internets. It always ends in fail as they get more, and worse, publicity than they ever dreamed of.

In this case, the clear message is, "Our cakes suck just enough that we're ashamed of having them on Cake Wrecks in any way whatsoever." Keep in mind that Cake Wrecks highlights well executed cakes as often as poorly done ones.

You probably can copyright a cake decoration, but to enforce it they'd first have to register the decoration with the U.S. Copyright Office. I can really see the Safeway bakery staff putting that one on their to-do list.

The cake is a lie!

Have some pie instead

Also, seems pretty relevant:

RIP cake. An exsquisite blend of all the wrong colors found in nature. Poo brown, pond slime and mildew greens. Hell, even the outer layer has the appearance of a rotted bloated carcass. I've never seen anything so nauseatingly perfect in my entire life.

Longtime fan of CakeWrecks. Their bad cakes are really, really bad. Andt their good cakes are astounding. Farkers would appreciate the blogger's snarky comments, too. Good site.

Jenn of Cakewrecks was ebullient when she shared this story on their Facebook page... a major victory in her life.

The blog is killer and has some of the most ridiculous and mind-blowing cakes you've ever seen.

If they're bad cakes, who would buy them to take home and photograph?

Clearly, one major exception to copyright is fair use for satire. What else is that site, if not a satire on the industry?

Realistically speaking, who cares what the cake looks like, as long as it tastes good?

I attended a wedding last summer with an XKCD cake. Yep, plain white with the little stick figures piped on. It was devilsfood inside. Delicious geekitude.

If you have a popcorn cake for your wedding, then you DON'T care what it looks like, you know?

Because they'll still taste good after you've made fun of them.
