Think They're Organic? [smirk]

Thursday, January 15, 2009

Ok, class, time for your anatomy lesson - Cake Wrecks style.

This is your brain:
This is your brain slurping spaghetti and trimmed with white icing:

(Ok, maybe not. I'm told it's supposed to be a kidney.)

I'm not sure this next one is professional, but I didn't have the heart to cut it:

"Call me ugly, will you? Why, aorta..."

And this last one is reeeallly gross, so don't scroll down unless you have a LOT of intestinal fortitude.


I mean it, now, this sucker is GROSS.



What, you still wanna see it? Ok, but don't say I didn't warn you!


[averting eyes] I would say something clever here, but I have to go vomit now. Won't you excuse me?


Maren A., Louise F., & Monique R., my diet plan thanks you.

Wow! Are these yummy looking...even cannibals needs a cake.

BTW- update on the Hitler family cake...

Donna said...

Wow...who in their right mind would order an intestinal tract cake? "Congrats on your gastric bypass" I suppose.

Zitny Clan said...

who, who on earth could EAT this stuff? With the last one, I just imagine the smell of rotting meat! EWWW! Lord help us all....

Half Assed Kitchen said...

I expect that last cake to squirm and pulsate. Nasty! And I wonder how the decorator got it to gleam like that.

four little blessings said...

Flashbacks to Gross Anatomy class. Yuck!

Gabrielle said...

The color of the heart was beautiful and it seemed so realistic. FOR A MODEL not for FOOD. Ew.

Bibi said...

$20 says none of those cakes ever got eaten.

WakeGrace said...

oh. my. god. i seriously gasped out loud in class.... *raises hand* my i be excused?! im going to..*runs*


my only question ok..i actually have two.

WHAT ARE THEY THINKING?!

and...

WHYYYYYYYYY??!!

Johanna said...

That brain is definitely food for thought, perhaps only for thought.

HorribleLicensePlates said...

I would totally eat a kidney. I will pass on that last one though. I think its the shiny-ness of the organs that are bothering the most on that one.

Elvira said...

Why? Why? Why? Why? Why?

WV= quams. I have a few quams with the spelling of my word verification

Bryssy said...

That is too sick! Who thinks of these things?

HorribleLicensePlates said...

Errr, I meant that kidney, not a real one.

yanicka said...

Ewwwwwwwwwwwwww I think that for the last one, it's the shiny effect that get to me.

Faith said...

Those cakes are awesome! The kidney one is kind of a wreck just because they didn't try that hard but the rest are perfect. Each clearly took a lot of time and effort by the decorator and they did a brilliant job on accuracy.

As a researcher, I'd be thrilled to have any one of those at a staff party! Even the last one! I used to work in digestive diseases. Everyone would think it was a total hoot!!!

Donna said...

Why???

And really, who could eat any of those without gagging?

Miranda said...

OHGOD OHGOD I splorfed all my coffee into my keyboard and went through a stack of napkins and a pack of Wet Ones cleaning it up and my cubicle smells like coffee now.

Dang, y'all...these morgue cakes are terrifying!!! @___@

Amber said...

Just one question, why???? I think the intestine cake has to be the most disgusting cake I have ever seen!

Melinda, Western MA said...

Wow! And, I thought face cakes were bad.

Rebecca said...

Oh dear. I think I'd rather eat the baby butt cake.

Anonymous said...

seems like every high school biology teachers dream cake. wow.

The Warden said...

I must say that I was compelled to scroll down and look at the last cake. The only thing that would have made that cake worse is some fondant "skin" hanging off the edges a la autopsy style. YUCK!

outspokenandunderpaid said...

That brain is gross, but I can't stop looking at it! Ugh!

Nicole said...

I wonder how many people actually have an appetite for cake after seeing these? I'm mildly nauseated, personally... Blech!

Julie said...

The SHINY on the intestines might just be a bit too much.

Leslie said...

So what's with the heart? It looks like it's had a bit of an infarct there with the darker colored area on the bottom (I'm guessing dead tissue?) So is this a cardiologist's cake or is it a "Congratulations on Surviving your Heart Attack Now We're Going to Stuff You With Buttercream" cake?
I also wish I could see the ugly one (let me clarify...the last ugly one) better. Is that a tourniquet on the lung? Is that even the lung? *scratches her head*
These cakes look like a cruel joke the folks in Pathology would play on me.

Incidentally Jen, this may be a good lead in to your funeral cakes since these are obviously the autopsy cakes.

The Courteous Chihuahua said...

Wait a minute...I've seen that last one somewhere before. Oh, wait! It was here!

Morgi said...

I like the kidney cake!

I really had to hunt to find a kidney-shaped cookie cutter... I eventually found one being sold as a jelly bean.

psalm33_3 said...

People actually ate these?!?!

*~*Lis*~* said...

well now - there goes my appetite

Amy said...

The first brain looks like it's got some kind of worms. Awesome in an autopsy sort of way.

The kidney? Hmm...for your fave Nephrologist?

The last one..A & P Lab end of year party! Yep.

Okay, okay, so I like the macabre.

Melody said...

I wonder when anyone even needed organ-themed cakes?

Alix said...

I don't understand the controversy here... What's the problem with a disemboweled body cake? Doesn't it just put a fine point on loving from the insdide out?

Char said...

Its way too early in the morning to be lookin at glistening organ cakes. Eck!

Redheaded Wonder said...

What is WRONG with these people!!!!!

Judy said...

Oh my gosh! I can't believe they made that last one all glossy and...wait...I mean...I can't believe they MADE that one at all!!!!

Kristin said...

Why oh why would anyone destroy perfectly good frosting and cake by making those?

Abigail Hutchinson said...

Ewwwww!!!! Hehehe! Those are pretty bad...fyi: I never never never want a cake of my insides! hehe!

Hmmm. Kinda makes you wonder if a cake looking so realistic isn't just a bit over-rated. And hey!! I thought our brain was made of GRAY matter, not ground-beef-that's-been-sitting-in-the-fridge-for-four-days "pink".......I've heard of kidney pie, but kidney CAKE???? As for the cake with, er, intestinal fortitude, this too shall pass........

that heart is actually quite... beautiful.

but it makes me dry heave a little.

I'M SO CONFUUUUSED!!!

Slave Driver said...

Okay, and the baker really expected someone to eat that last thing?

Bleh!!!

beckiwithani said...

Ha! That's actually very good workmanship, especially the heart...

My sister made a coconut-filled chocolate brain for her husband. The previous year, she made brain cookies. Yes, there is a story behind it....

rainbowmummy said...

Given that you are told to remove the black vein from prawns (as it's not a vein its an intestine) I would have thought the same rule applied for cakes.

Ewe, lets hope there is no chocolate frosting in there, eeeeww.

Tracy O said...

Ok, as a medical researcher in digestive diseases, it's not gross to me (I've seen so much worse), but they are eerily accurate and definitely weird...
For some reason on that last one, I keep focusing on that white icing shell border at the bottom and want to say - Gee, that looks out of place there....

Tracy O

Herbee said...

Why? Why, why, why, why, WHY would you order a cake like any of those?? *stunned*

word ver: defact
Defact is, these are just plain disgusting!

sharon said...

Oh dear, you've asked for it now. This thoracic cavity is the most disgusting inner anatomy cake I've ever seen. http://www.theyrecoming.com/extras/pumpkinfest03/
Really, don't look at it before breakfast. Not a professional cake, but a stunning subversion of virtuosity.

shahinrani said...

Why?? WHY?!?

M said...

If this is the way to celebrate a transplant or achieving doctor-hood, COUNT ME OUT.

I Love Baby Quilts! said...

I just can't get over how intricate the folds are on that brain cake! They are so perfect, and all different. Gorgeous! Although I think the hemispheres are not joined in the middle until you get down to the corpus callosum.

I wish you could enlarge the intestine cake! I'm not easily grossed out.

I knew that was a kidney right on sight. I'm doing pretty good!

Catmania said...

First of all I have to say eeeeeeeeewwwwwwwwwwwwwww! Now that I got that off my chest, I do think the first one, while bizarre, is at least well done. As for the others, the only thing that comes to mind is WTF? I guess nothing says party quite like a internal organ cake - lol.

Anna said...

ewwwwwwwwww
the first brain is cool but the rest of the organs make me want to gag!

Ream O Rama said...

Umm, I am completely at a loss for words with that last one....are those intestines???

marybt said...

I stand corrected. There really IS something worse than the kitty litter cakes. Barf.

oddharmonic said...

The brain is adorable, but the last one is begging to be reproduced in seafood. (Like snack cake sushi, only in reverse.)

Anonymous said...

I actually like the heart cake. It's not so much a wreck. Very intricately done.

Ree

Motorcycle Grandma said...

Please tell me that these wrecks are actually models for Anatomy 101. I can't think of any other reason someone would want one of these. Yuck!

alisaz said...

Whoa, the heart one kind of looks like a half-dead octopus.

I swear there are maggots in those intestines!but i (heart) the heart cake. It's awsome!

Anonymous said...

They are actually really well done, but I sure don't know why you'd want to eat them!

Adam G said...

Gross or not, I think they're all very well-rendered. Although a Sunday Sweets of "internal organs" probably wasn't coming up any time soon...
I worked in a lab with surgeons for years. You'd be surprised what they can stomach during lunchtime conversation!

Amy.mangos said...

As a biology/neurology student, I can totally see people cutting that brain cake: "And once we've removed the temporal lobes- here's a slice for you, Jen- we can get a better view of the... oh, wait, it's all white cake textured. That DOES make it hard to identify the corpus callossum! Well, at least we have a nice frosting replica of the upper medulla..."

And the heart is pretty awesome! I've eaten chicken hearts, so I guess a cake heart doesn't bother me so much. In fact, it looks rather tasty!

The other organs, however, I'm not so fond of.

Mella said...

ok a kidney should be kidney shaped

And a question about the last cake .What is that black/dark thing which is draped over the liver

Anonymous said...

The only thing that would make the intestines cake worse is to see some ice cream melting on the top of it.....

Vinca Leaf Quilts said...

OMG....the abdominal cavity has me LMAO! :D

Rebecca

amyd said...

I'm assuming that these cakes were for events involving medical professionals...but after looking at actual internal organs all day long who on earth would want to eat a cake-simile of one?

donkeyinawhitecoat said...

The brain was enough to make me sick. I hate the squiggly ickiness of brains. And the tangle of nerve endings at the bottom? Come on. That is goshdang DISGUSTING. Now i have to go find and eat a delicious cake to put this out of my mind.

Kate said...

ugh, I feel the dry heaves coming...

Meg said...

You should visit the Body Worlds exhibits and then you'd be amazed and completely gleeful to get an abdominal cake!

KimboSue said...

There are just some occasions that DO NOT require a cake!

Willow Tree said...

Dear God Why?

I would eat the intestine cake.
(SSC cannibalism... om nom nom.)

IL Nurse said...

Registered nurse here. I love these cakes. Any other heath professionals out there? Notice that the heart cake has dark icing on the apex, indicating ischemia & an MI? Maybe it was made for a cardiologist.

Chicka said...

Those are just teh awesum!

Anonymous said...

I actually like these cakes for the most part. The brain cake is pretty impressive, but I could do without the weird squigglies. The digestive system cake is also notable, but the "Congrats Drew" message throws off the overall effect. I haven't checked, but I don't think I have a strip going diagonal on my liver.

Chicka said...

They don't call it gross anatomy for nuttin'! LOL! (And I can think of a ton of people who would order these cakes - interns, residents, anyone in medical or nursing school, etc....um...me?)

joyce said...

I hesitate to ask what pathologist cakes look like. I would not want to give anyone ideas. If they do show up---can we save them for Halloween? Thanks.

Trent Sketch said...

I think these are some of the best cakes that have been featured on the site. Methinks they may have been ordered for horror and/or med-school related festivities. That intestine cake screams zombie party. The heart might come from a Poe-themed festivity. The kidney may even be connected to a dedicated Joyce fan for Bloomsday. A to the brain, kidney, and intestines; A+ to the gorgeous heart.

Anonymous said...

I just threw up a little bit.

WV: retter - the noise you will make when you look at these cakes.

The Cheap-Arse Film Critic said...

That brain one...

... there are no words.

harmzie said...

I agree with Faith (& rare others) that these are great! I'd eat them, because when you cut it up & put it on a plate, it just looks like a piece of cake.

The whole intestinal cavity, in my opinion, was made wrecky by adding the cutesy ribbon & bows at the top left. Just do your writing on the stomach!

kerry said...

i've never much liked cake to begin with, but that last one... *gag*

Anonymous said...

I am a big fan...HUGE fan of Halloween, and I love Halloween-themed baked goods. But even I have the rule: if it's not APPETIZING don't make it! No one wants to eat stuff that looks gross.

I must be a bit crazy. I quite like the heart. :) Yeah, I'm messed up in the head.

terrib said...

Those dangly bits at the bottom of the brain probably represent what would happen if you ripped the brain off the spinal cors- it's just a bunch of nerves.

Except for the kidney, all of them looked amazingly realistic. I could see them at retirement parties for a neurologist/brain surgeon, nephrologist, cardio-thoriac surgeon and GI docs retirement parties, respectively.

Holly said...

Wait, what? These are CAKES? Are the decorators insane? Oh wait, that's the whole point of this blog.

Anita said...

Hee hee, I adore these and would eat them all! I can imagine some wonderful parties for crazy students with these, and I would totally have been one of those students in high school/college.

Kimmy said...

Can someone please explain why in the HAIL someone would think intestines would make a good cake? Nasty.

Laura Moffitt said...

Why do people think its a good idea to make cakes out of your insides? There is a reason we can't see them, lets keep it that way.

phillygirl64 said...

OMG...ewww...just EWWW!!!

There's a chocolate place in town that does a realistic model of a heart; they even consulted with a nearby hospital when creating it...but it's chocolate (dark, milk, or white), not colored to look real

they say you are what you eat...

Barbara Jo said...

Oh, come on - you'll post these, but you won't post my thoracic cavity cake? (http://www.theyrecoming.com/extras/pumpkinfest03/) No fair! I admit I'm not a professional, but you admit that the heart might not be either!

And for all you doubters out there, I have served cakes just as gross as these (maybe grosser - mine ususally bleed when you cut them) to numerous people on numerous occasions, and only once did anyone refuse to eat them. He was a 4-year-old boy who was expecting a cupcake and could not be persuaded that the miniature human heart that we served him actually was a cupcake. His 2-year-old brother, however, devoured his heart cupcake with glee, after first breaking off the aorta and drinking the raspberry blood within.

I will admit that my cordial cherry eyeballs (http://www.theyrecoming.com/extras/zombiefest/index2.php) do occasionally meet with some resistance.

Excellent work on the cakes. The only one I'd eat would be the brain. The sheen on the others kinda puts me off.

Good to hear that those kids are out of the house. Their parents need a smack with the clue bat.

Andrea said...

I'm actually kinda digging the Anatomy cakes. Maybe it's because I plan to be a nurse once I get into school, but I thnk these are mostly well done. That heart one especially is nicely made. I never thought anyone would ever make organ-themed cakes, but hey. The Internet has Rule 34, why can't cakes?

Angela said...

SICK!!!

Hunnybee said...

The only one I have issues with is the last one. Why does it look like bugs are crawling over it?

Jackierella said...

Another RN here, and I agree these are great for a hospital party or a fellow staff member birthday. The ribbon on the intestine cake is inappropriately placed, and should be moved off the organ entirely, it is taking away from the masterpiece of the human anatomy!

Kathryn H said...

Is it just me, or does anyone else imagine they are smelling formaldehyde?

Mad Hatter said...

these are great, perfect for medical parties.

Stefanie said...

jen said...

I guess if you can't bear for your cake creation to be eaten - this is the route you go? Or maybe they're made for research professionals who like the idea of celebrating birthdays in the lab - but know cake is not the healthiest thing to eat...

Charly said...

Wooow. Unbelievable! It adds a whole new dimension to feeling guilty when you eat cake! Do you feel like you are eating someone? Eeeew! P.S. The "why I aorta..." was HILARIOUS! I laughed out loud.

Charly said...

P.S. My husbands says the heart is a 'heart attack'...regarding the black part at the bottom. So, someone made a Heart Attack cake??? Congratulations on your Heart Attack???

I'm clearly in the minority here, but I don't think these are wrecks at all. They're all (except the kidney) expertly executed. After all, you can't hold the decorator responsible for a customer requesting a gross subject matter.

to cake # 1: is that brain poop?

to cake # 4: what ARE those little red things?!?! tumors? parasites? leeches? little hemorrhages that might burst in your face as you cut the cake?

I'm pretty sure only a coroner could eat these cakes without wincing...

I'm a pathologist and deal with this all day. What a treat to see it celebrated! I'm impressed with the anatomical correctness of it (except the brain). Oh, and that's not a lung, that's the liver.. in the last one, Leslie. So they might not be appropriate for everyone's christmas party, but are these really wrecks?

I'm impressed and slightly disturbed by these...impressed because they look enough like the real thing to be identifiable, and disturbed because I can't imagine what occasion might call for a giant internal organ cake.

I have to agree with the other posters who pointed out that the kidney is too flat, although I am impressed with the addition of the renal artery & ureter, out of proportion though they may be...btw, I manage a nephrology practice. :)

Barbara Jo, your cakely efforts are off the wall amazing. WOW!

Zhoen said...

Great brain.

Zombie Edward said...

I like the brain cake with the exception of the squiddly things at the bottom.

BurntCupcake said...

Those intestines really do not look cakey at all! The top with the lungs etc looks like cake but those intestines look like sausages!
A closer look is definitely needed.

Calantha said...

I wasn´t even sure of what the kidney cake was supposed to be at first! It didn´t look quite like a brain to me.

How can I put this delicately? The intestinal one....the large intestine looks like someone botched a whole bunch of circumsions and then a cannibal stole the parts and made them into a necklace. Wow.

WV: dosess - I will need three dosses of beer after seeing these cakes!

cindy said...

What?

Jesssss said...

Some of them look downright pitiful, but the heart and first brain looked great, imo.

mrs. q. said...

What does the colon one say? Congratulations? (Or congradulatons?)

K said...

ewwww.. The first one actually looks pretty neat, but the others are just plain gross

Molly said...

Wow. Those are great. The heart in particular is really nicely done, and I love the concepts...though I'm not sure I'd want to eat the intestine cake. Eep.

I think it's time to remember what criteria a cake must meet in order to be considered a "wreck." "A Cake Wreck is any cake that is unintentionally sad, silly, creepy, inappropriate - you name it. A Wreck is not necessarily a poorly-made cake; it's simply one I find funny, for any of a number of reasons."

So...Yeah. These all work. *shudder*

WV: cobblept: adept at cobbling together strange decorations and calling it good. As in, those mohawk baby carrot jockeys sure were put together by a cobblept.

I'm not queasy, but thinking about eating that made me sick.

These cakes belong in that Body World exhibition of traveling preserved body bits. I am fasinated yet it gives me a headache. I want one!

Procrastinateher said...

Oooh reminds me of a cake I may or may not have tried to send you the link to, which has a few organs in a white chocolate ribcage. Can't remember it now, don't think it was professional. But it sure was interesting... if you like to pretend you're a cannibal by making cakes look like people parts, I guess.

cygirlkat said...

Perversely impressive....


WV: exessen. I can't think of a better post to have had that one.

punxxi said...

the brain and the heart are totally awesome...me love em long time, but then, i worked in e.r and o.r. for a million years. hospital people would love those cakes...even the intestines! yumyum num nummmy

robyn said...

I dunno...being an OR nurse, I think they're kindof cool. And there would be good opportunities to have a cake like that--passing one's board exam, having an organ transplant, etc.

Kelly said...

Personally, I don't find these to be gross at all, but amazing instead. Of course, I'm in school to become a doctor, so maybe I'm just really into things like that.
