The 10 Most WTF Baby Shower Cakes

By  | 

Baby shower cakes can be integral part of the entire baby shower execution. It often times doesn’t matter how many crappy games that your hosts insist that you play or how you, or your family, plan to arrange those plastic kitschy babies. One questionable cake order/preparation can determine the entire mood of your event. Which means that the vibe can get really awkward once you start giving pacifiers to woodland creatures and sculpting c-sections into icing.

2. Somebody killed that ugly stroller you had on your registry and made a cake out of it

    I don’t think that’s a c-section.

    The strawberries were a bit to much (especially for a cake that was ALREADY too much)…and yeah, I don’t think that was a C-section judging by the chocolate sprinkled pubes.

      I agree it doesn’t look like a csection… But if its not a csection, then what in gods name is the strawberry supposed to be? I am scared…

      Nope. It’s just the largest and least anatomically correct Cake Vagina ever. Plus the role of blood clots in this cake will be played by strawberries.

      This is CLEARLY a c-section cake. I found it on Cake Wrecks…

      Also, the other is simply gross. And is also from Cake Wrecks.

    Actually I thought the first few were pretty cool, especially #1. I have a friends who bakes cakes as a side living, so I understand the work that goes into it.

    But #6, #7, and #8 made me go, “Ummmmmm……uhhhhhhh……”

    Whatever happened to “Congratulations, [name here]!” on a cake?

    Is it just me or does #6 seem oddly sexual? Its making me beyond uncomfortable.

    • Rachel Sea

      The biggest problem I have with 6 is that no one would give birth on that rug. You would never, ever get it clean, and you’d have a hell of a time explaining to the workers at the dump why you were throwing away a rug with a giant bloody stain.

    How do you even eat the birth/baby crowning cakes? “Yea’ I’ll the slice with the pubes, are those chocolate sprinkles or frosting?”

    I can’t unsee this.

    Oh god, have you seen this one?

    My wife still can’t watch that cake being cut.

    • Rachel Sea

      July 19, 2013 at 4:11 pm

      Wow. I am not squeamish, but that was not easy to watch. I flinched when the knife went in.

    • Zach Rosenberg

      July 19, 2013 at 4:17 pm

      Me too! My wife turns into a sobbing mess. I flinch, but when my wife starts crying, it pulls me out of my knee-jerk. Of course, then my wife starts laughing too and we forget the video’s even on.

      July 19, 2013 at 7:55 pm

      I just laughed. My husband is probably calling social services right now.

    Is #9 supposed to be an INFANT?! Because it looks like one of the seven dwarves.

    Numbers 6, 7, and 8 are very no. VERY.

    I kind of like the turtle and the seals. At least it’s not pubes and a smiling vagina. Or a clitoral peapod.

    I think I remember number 6 as being Nicole Richie’s cake when she hosted a shower for one of her friends – it was one of her crude jokes 😉

    I need to call my mother and thank her for ordering a sheet cake with a stork and “congratulations” written on it.

    I don’t know if I’ll eat strawberries again. And I like strawberries.
