Cracking Us Up: Amazing(ly Horrible) Baby Shower Cakes

Ever since I wandered into an erotic bake shop as a teen (where everything was XXXtra tasty), I’ve been obsessed with novelty desserts. From an oversize marzipan penis to dog poop cupcakes, I thought I’d seen -- and eaten -- it all. Then I stumbled across this collection of crazy baby shower cakes at The Laughing Stork.

And here I thought I was being witty by serving Carvel’s Cookie O’Puss at my shower. The cakes compiled by ex-soap opera scribe-turned-mommy-blogger Candy Kirby really, well, take the cake.  These confections, from the hilarious site Cake Wrecks, seem to fall into three categories: Edible babies, including this disturbingly realistic-looking swaddled infant concocted by a “sugar artist’; babies being born, even if that means the kid’s bursting through mommy’s tummy Alien-style or coming out the old-fashioned way; and cakes that make you wonder if the supposed BFF who threw the mom-to-be’s shower had a bone to pick. Just look at this headless, limbless, pregnant tattooed torso, or this simple chocolate cake with a very pointed message: “Congrats on your teen pregnancy.”
