Daily Sucker for Tuesday, October 30, 2007
Submitter's comments: I just visited aceofcakestv.com, Duff’s web site from the tv show "Ace Of Cakes" on the Food Network. WOW, what at great example of Mystery Meat Navigation — and abuse of Flash.
Vincent's comments: My wife is hooked on all these cooking shows, especially the competition ones like "Top Chef." Since we're opposites, I don't like them and that's funny because I...uh...really like to eat.
Of all the cooking/food shows on, the absolute worst one is Ace of Cakes (with the ranting and raving of "Iron Chef" a close second) and so it's only logical that their site would suck. As far as Mystery Meat — I mean, "Mystery Cake Navigation" goes, this site has one of the worst examples around. When you get to the last frame, you can still click on "Next," but it's dead.
Like many Flash sites, there isn't anything here that wouldn't work better in HTML.
Awww... I think the site is fun, but I have to agree that the Flash is a little overwhelming--especially since there's no HTML-only option.
What do you think?
