Reality Bites

Tuesday, July 28, 2009

NOTE: This post was written several days ago, and was not intended to be a commentary on any breaking news events. My sincere apologies to any who may find it offensive.

Cake artists, can we talk? I feel like we need to have a little heart-to-heart.

Ok, here's the deal: I know that you guys are talented - I do! - and I get that you like to showcase your talent with the cakes you make.

The only problem is, when you make something like this:

Well, no one wants to eat it.

Not to mention it's depressing; could that look any more funereal?

Look at it from the cake consumer's perspective: would you want to slice into a sleeping baby?

"I call butt!"

Or worse, have a toddler's eyeball staring up at you from your plate?

Yeah, I didn't think so.

So cake sculptors, please, stop making us choose between cake deprivation and feeling like a cannibal. If you must make a baby cake, make it nice and cartoony - preferably with no basis in reality whatsoever.

You know, like this:

Three arms, a gravity defying diaper, and crazy sunglasses? Yep, I'd eat that.

Heather S., Steven K., Michelle G., & Liz J., does that kid really have a 3rd arm sprouting from his chest? Why...I think he does. Pass the milk!

Update: Tons of you are saying that's a butt crack, not an arm. (The rest claim it's Epcot.) I can almost see that, but I still think it looks more like an arm. ;)

I am sorry I agree with egan . I feel you should have pulled the post. You pulled one about polo horses but not this one. Anyhow bakers bake what people want so someone is ordering these cakes. Maybe if some people would stop ordering cakes like this we wouldn't have photos to mock. If we didn't have photo's to mock where would Cake Wreck's be? Just a thought...

Sariah said...

I'm so glad that other people saw the butt crack. Three arms was disturbing. Once people pointed out the butt crack I was much less disturbed. Still disturbing, but at least I'll be able to sleep tonight without seeing three armed babies. ;)

Anonymous said...

I don't understand Jen's note at the top...what current events would cause people to be offended by this post?

Braley Mama said...

oh my!............no one should ever eat those, they should feel guilty.........at confession"one time i ate a baby".....GROSS!

Dani said...

I think the question I need to ask at tis point is, who keeps ordering these cakes?

I mean that first one is really well done although quite morbid so you have to think they didn't mess up the order. Someone asked for that.

Sarah said...

Ok.....it took me a really looong look to see the butt crack for what it was lol butt (oops but) lol it fnally went from third arm to butt ROFL

Allison said...

We love you, Jen. Just had to throw that out there and we know you wouldn't do anything intentional. Eegads. I'm really glad I don't have cable right now.

Jen said...

I don't know...I've been a journalist, so I undestand the integrity thing where you don't want to allow anyone's bias dictate the stories you're going to run. However, with that right comes responsibility to your readers. If you're going to run something THIS inflammatory, it had better be for a damn good reason. It had better be for your readers own good, even if it's going to sting in the delivery. Nobody gained here. Not your readers, who were reminded of a gruesome tragedy for no greater cause. Not even you, when you could have easily pulled from the archives today instead of coming off all "I'm the boss of this blog and you guys don't have the power to make me show good taste. Pfthhhh!"

Well, we do have the power to stop reading if it seems like this blog isn't being written responsibly. If there's much more of this kind of thing I won't be back.

PS
It's totally an ass crack.

quichepup said...

Actually I'm confused by the weird red thing next to butt-crack baby.

Looks like kiwis, moth balls and bugs to me--yum!

Wreck on, Jen.

Anonymous said...

All I have to say is my 5 year old said, "Is that a cream baby? I wouldn't eat a cream baby! YUCK!" with no prompting from me.

So even cake #1 was too gross for a 5 year old to overcome.

john (the hubby of Jen) said...

To Egan and several others,

Jen and I struggled for about two hours this morning trying to decide whether to take this post down. Yes we did take the horse post down and we go a HUGE amount of flak for that.

Please understand, when you run a blog this big and you spend as many hours as Jen does trying to make you guys laugh everyday, a post like this is a no win situation. I guess we figured that all of the RSS feed people would see it anyway and our early core readers didn't seem that offended.

We really are sorry if you were offended. Try to remember though that any other day, you would not have been.

You guys are the best.

john

A Modest Proposal anyone?

Lady said...

Oh, wow. Have I got some thoughts.

1. "ITS NOT A 3DR ARM ITS EPCOT DUHHHHHHH JEN"

(Yes, I read through every comment to see if someone had posted it ;-)

2. Kate, you couldn't have said it better!

3. Maybe cake shouldn't be so realistic in this case. I'm all for things like Amazing Cakes and Cake Boss, where the cakes look like shoes, shoe boxes, and jewelry holders (seriously! Did you see the attention to detail?!). Living things? Not so much. If God somehow thinks I am capable of raising a child, the cake at the bridal shower will have a simple, classic "congradulatins - it a gril!!!''!"
And maybe Darth Vader and/or Harry Potter.

End rant.

Anonymous said...

I just want to say that I'm glad you haven't pulled the post so far. You can't keep from offending everyone all the time, and it's obvious that you aren't making fun of what happened in Texas.

By the way, I've been reading your blog since sometime in October, and you've always managed to at least make me smile. More often than not, I end up in giggles, especially if I've been away from the computer for a few days and have a few posts to catch up on. :)

Anonymous said...

Scary cakes. Ew.

I must say:
Personally, I am offended by all the comments detailing the horrific news story.
I don't watch the news for a reason, people!!
To avoid being disgusted by all the sick crazies out there.
I read this blog and keep in touch with my friends and they tell me the news I need to hear.
Please keep your horror stories to yourself. This is not the place for them.
If the real world unfortunately aligns with cakewrecks, that's not Jen's fault, and keep your nasty sad stories to yourself, please!
Reapeat, if you must link to a story, please don't show a link that has a full description of the horror!
NOT SOMETHING I WANT OR NEED TO HEAR ABOUT!

Please let's enjoy laughing at the stupid cakes and keep the media coverage of psycopaths out of it. Hmm?

Alex

Ps. @I love baby quilts - I am sorry for your loss. That has got to be hard, I can't imagine.

Wv: recham - These cakes make me recham.

Jennifer said...

Ok, most of the comments I glanced at seem to be talking about the last cake. That's fine by me, because I am talking about that one too. I saw three arms. Then I had to concentrate to see the butt crack. Then I had to squint and tilt my head to imagine the butt crack connecting with the bum. Then I went back to seeing three arms.

It's easier that way.

lol!

Erica said...

It's an optical illusion!

At first I saw three arms, now I can see two and a butt crack if I concentrate. Awesome.

Anonymous said...

I know someone who collects Victorian postmortem photographs, which often (sadly) feature babies. That top cake would be PERFECT for him.

sendinthenewclowns said...

OMG... what a bunch of self-righteous know-it-alls.
Since WHEN does some random news story have any right to dictate or influence what a person can write about?
I'll suggest NEVER.
There is NOTHING offensive here.
As it has already been pointed out by someone else with common sense, THESE are CAKES.
There are any number of horrific stories out there--every single minute of every single day; the NEWS MEDIA's job is to cover/report them.
It is far from being any blogger's responsibilty to check with a non-existent and very large staff of advisors as to what story *might* just happen to be politically incorrect or minutely offensive at any given moment.
This world is real, and bad things happen.
If we weren't so hard-wired to up-to-the-minute news feeds, life would still go on.
Oh, yeah--life DOES still go on.
Funny, isn't it?

Little Lovables said...

"Also, I keep wondering -- are the people offended by pictures (not even offensive pictures!) of baby-shaped cakes SO affected by this news in Texas that they can't stand to look at their own babies? Are they locking babies away from sight? Are they yelling at mommies with strollers on the streets?"

just had to comment on this that it's not looking at babies, or pictures of cake babies, but it's the comments about slicing into the baby, feeling like a cannibal and eating a baby, which just happend over the weekened here in Texas.

It's not just a baby that died, sad, and yes, it does happen every day, but a newborn that had it's face ripped off and it's brains eaten by it's mother... a whole different thing.

Though I still love your blog, just sad today about this story and I wanted to come here to feel that sadness lessened, not be reminded of it.

Debbie Culpepper said...

Holy Smokes, Cakeman. Everyone was so concerned about the "third arm" that no one commented that the baby's crack looks like a whale.

Also, much more should have been said about the creepy, tiara-wearing offspring of the Burger King guy and Thing from the Adams Family.

You go, Jen. I support you!

Tamara said...

Okay seriously, this story hasn't even made it out of TX yet. No one knows about this except for the Texas readers. There is no way that EVERYONE can know every news story that goes on. And guess what, there are horrible baby/child/women/men tragedies every single day. So we should just censor the entire internet? It hasn't hit the national media, it's not on any of the major news networks yet. This isn't insensitive or should be pulled because of some poor timing that is going to happen, unfortunately, nearly every single week.

Uh, wow. If I hadn't seen this blog post, I wouldn't have known about the woman in Texas. I kind of wish I hadn't see this post.

Bilby P. Dalgyte said...

There's no third arm! You promised me a third arm! AAGGGGHHHH!!! :'(

Anonymous said...

Without the disclaimer, I wouldn't have read the comments. And without the comments, I wouldn't have known what "news" so many are talking about. These news haven't hitten the planet anywhere else besides Texas. (I'm from Germany.) And as this blog is read by people from all over the world, I don't see a reason to take it down, just because a small percentage of people see a distasteful coincidence. The only thing I can see is a three armed kid. Which is indeed distasteful!

Anonymous said...

You gotta stop apologizing! People are hyper-sensitive, insanely PC, and basically, whatever you say is going to offend SOMEONE. Yes, something terrible happened. The world kept on turning. This post was made BEFORE that incident, and there's no reason to be all bleeding-heart-OMFGCRYING-liberal over nothing. Maybe I'm insensitive, but this was clearly not intended as a malicious post, so don't apologize for doing what you do so well -- making us laugh!

dawnder said...

I couldn't find the third arm until I read that what I see as a butt can be an arm! Funny!

Maybe these cakes were made as decoration?? Perhaps the REAL cake is just a plain old sheet cake with no baby to cut into?? I hope!

Blackbeard said...

Politicallycorrectwrecks.

I've nowhere else seen people "offended" by cakes of all things.

RELAX.

Kylie from Oz said...

Ok...I've read all the comments and just want to make two points:
1. love the blog. Hilarious. Check in most days and backtrack when i miss something.
2. some of your 'readers' are not from the USA so have no idea what news items you have or don't have. We may even have news items here that coincide in a good or bad way with one of your posts. The two are not related. One is a funny post about cakes. The other is a serious news item. What has happened today is unfortunate but unintentional. I wouldn't have even known there was an unfortunate news coincidence had i not seen Jen and John's wee note or read the many, many comments. So, please, keep some perspective when checking out this and any other blogs. If a news website ran Jen's story alongside their news item that would be distasteful (to say the least) but in this forum I think the reactions have been over the top.
Thanks, rant over :)

Kylie from Oz said...

oops. should have read ALL the comments (seems there were more!). I have repeated what has already been said so don't feel you need to post either of my comments.
Thanks guys :)

mandy said...

As for people in Texas thinking the news is nationwide, there have been AP and news organizations in English and Spanish from national news units are here beyond our regular 4 tv outlets. Most sites had the story posted in either most popular links or in their US Nation news if not on the front page.

I'm from the area and I came here to giggle because this site raises my moods when I'm down. That being said, I'd remarked to my 12 year old that I knew there was a good chance with the way gruesome stories hit the timing when articles are pre-written; it happens all the time.

That being said, I think her note at the top should have been enough for anyone who might have been concerned or had the potential to be upset by seeing such photos after knowing the news story details. I think the note was enough and those who were offended have said their piece without being total dbags (though I am sure some comments are deleted). For those who say to those to get over it or those whining for the post to be removed, remember everyone is different and their triggers are different. Show each other the respect you would if you were dealing with a loved one and realize that people can disagree yet continue to like a similar subject.

Again, love the blog and am a person who for years paid for bad wrecks on purpose because this one company made such tasty cakes. I am trying to dig out some photos to send in.

King of New York Hacks said...

Dead Baby Cakes....Cool...I'll pass my piece to someone else.

Anonymous said...

I keep trying to see this third arm, but I only see two. What part of the cake is being seen as the third arm? I mean that seriously!

Judy said...

Okay I have a solution Jen and John: Before you post any cakes I think you should check all world wide news casts.On TV, Satelite, internet, radio etc. etc. etc. It will only take about 23 1/2 hours out of your day. No big deal You'll still have 1/2 hour to write the blog.When will you Sleep you say?
Really...do you think you'll want to sleep after you hear all the monstrosities that go on in the world.

But think of how responsible you'll appear to your readers! Think of the love from your adoring fans! Think of the accolades! you'll hold your head high above the masses!

See - simple solution! Really why didn't you guys think of that? Phsssssh! LOL

Anonymous said...

In the end, Jen’s assertion is correct. There's nothing like an anatomical conundrum to make the baby cake go down easier.

Thomas and Jamie said...

Life imitating art anyone? First the horse blog, now this...unfortunate timing, definitely! Great blog, however!

Sarah said...

For the longest time, I could not think of what news story you were talking about, but I don't think you should have to pull your post. I still think it's hilarious, just bad timing. It was nice of you to put up the apology. Keep writing such funny stuff, I love it.

Anonymous said...

Thank you for not pulling the post. I'm very sorry to say that I would have more reason than most to be offended (my infant nephew was murdered last year). And, you know what? I'm offended that my nephew died violently. I'm offended that that crazy Texan did unspeakable things to her baby. I AM NOT OFFENDED BY THE FUNNY CAKES.

Thank you for the joy you bring into my days, Jen. (And John, too!)

b.w. said...

There are a lot of comments and I confess I haven’t read them all so if someone has already said this I apologize.

Jen’s original point was that realistic baby cakes are, at best, creepy. Obviously a valid point in light of the shocking news story with which the Cake Wrecks post unfortunately coincided. While Jen and John took some uncomfortable heat yesterday, I can only imagine how wretched I would feel if I had to deliver a realistic baby cake, on which I had worked long and hard, following a news story like the one that came to light yesterday.

Cake Wrecks has done yet another service to the cake decorating community by demonstrating that realistic baby cakes, no matter how cute, are still wrong; so very, very wrong. Decorators, ignore this fact at your own peril.

Thanks Cake Wrecks for entertaining, educating, and showing some back bone. You guys rock!

Anonymous said...

Looks like three arms to me!

Anonymous said...

I agree with what many people on here have said in support --- it's not your fault that a real event happened to coincide with the FUNNY post you put on your blog.

As far it being your responsibilty to not insult your readers --- um, last I checked a blog is written from one person's perspective and opinion. If you don't like it, stop reading it, but don't attack the author or demand they remove something/warn readers about a post. It's not hard-hitting journalism here, it's a site dedicated to making people laugh at CAKES. For those who have unfortunate personal events that these cakes conjured up memories of, that's not CW's fault and not their intention. If you see the post is about something you don't like navigate away from it, no one is forcing you to read it.

Have a little perspective and be nice -- I don't think the post needs to removed. And while I think it's terrible what happened in TX, I was still able to laugh at the pictures of the cakes on here.

Mission accomplished, Cakewrecks.

Angela Kershner said...

My mom keeps CNN on in the background pretty much all day, and I have come to hate the news. But, if they reported on that event everyone is talking about, it must not be as important to them as MJ's death or the President saying the word "stupidly", because I didn't hear about it. Not until reading the comments on this blog. I support the decision to not take down the post. Crazy, sick people do crazy, sick things all over the world every day. Sure, this post is about people eating cake babies. So? it's also about how disgusting and wrong that is. Sure, it's comedy. So laugh, people.

Oh, and if you have to put a warning at the top of every blog post so people's sensibilities aren't offended, the disclaimer for this one should be:

WARNING: Cake, babies, kiwis, strawberries, questionable anatomy, flowers, prepubescent nakedness, bling, sunglasses, and Chinese characters

Come on, people. Don't be ridiculous.

Sarah said...

Yes, buttcrack, arm, and all that...But the thing that gets me is - are those kiwis on the #1 on the cake? Gross. Good thing no one noticed while trying to figure out the arm/buttcrack dilemma.

P.S. First time reviewer here! Love the blog, keep the daily hilarity coming.

The third arm is its butt.

I just want to give my sympathies to the person who has to read THE SAME COMMENT over and over again. You're a stronger person than I am :)

Anonymous said...

I could not for the life of me see this supposed 3rd arm. However, when I put my finger over the arm sprouting out of his chest, I finally saw it. When you look at it this way, the baby's butt does look like an arm he has tucked down the back of his pants.

Dea said...

The other difference between this post and the horse post is that the horse post included a decapitated head cake. Ya know, like in The Godfather. This doesn't have any (intentionally) "death" cakes...

And Lora - you said it! :)

Anonymous said...

No, you're not crazy. There's only 2 arms and a baby butt crack. :)

Angie said...

Dang. How many people really needed to point out the arm vs. butt crack thing? You'd think after the first 15, people would have stopped... Sadly, not so.

I don't think I'd be rushing to eat any of those cakes.

I read this blog instead of the news so I really had no idea what all the hubub was about. I guess I'd rather be grossed out than depressed?

Anonymous said...

Oh my God, people. 250 comments later, I think we get that the third arm was intended to be the baby's butt!

Mandy said...

I live in Pittsburgh and it was covered on our local news more than once. I did see it briefly on cnn.com and so it never occurred to me that people everywhere wouldn't have heard about it.

I wasn't really "offended" by it, just had a hard time laughing at it and it would probably gotten a better response from everyone if it had been posted a different day. I read Cake Wrecks every day and it's usually eye-tearingly funny, but the unfortunate timing of this made that post the complete opposite of funny.

Hannahfish said...

I googled "Texas Baby News" upon seeing the disclaimer yesterday and the news story wasn't even the first thing to come up, nor was it reported here in my part of PA in any papers, nor did I see it on yahoo or CNN. (I also have no clue what the polo horse incident that's being mentioned is about... off to google that one too!)

And then I saw it, felt sad, and moved on with my life. And laughed at some baby butt crack.

Ch said...

Jen, if that last baby has three arms, then the third arm is playing with the contents of his diaper.

I'm not saying babies don't do this; they do. I'm just saying it's an inappropriate theme for a cake.

SaraB! said...

Throwing my support behind Jen here; after I read the post I went immediately to CNN and my local (Maryland/DC burbs) news outlets and couldn't find ANYTHING to which she might be referring. So clearly, not everyone knew about this right away.

Also- Reporter!Jen- Journalistic integrity? "something THIS inflammatory?" No offense to CakeWrecks!Jen, but this is not exactly the New York Times. It is a blog, and if everyone on the internet took down their blog posts because someone might be offended, then there would be no internet. Also... it's CAKE. Cake is not inflammatory unless you are allergic to gluten. Chill.

LOL @ Laura! Jen, girl, you just keep on keeping on, and don't worry about silly people with their panties in a wad. You are freakin' hilarious, and I love EVERY SINGLE POST you publish.

Colleen said...

I hope that cake decorators are re-thinking their idea of making realistic baby cakes after the incident with the Texas woman decapitating her child and proceeding to cannibalize it. No joke - google it.

Lora Bance said...

I saw three arms - but as soon as I saw the word "butt crack" typed, the picture transformed and I could no longer see the third arm. If you squint your eyes and crook your head slightly, you can make it switch back and forth between arm and butt crack, a bit like those magic eye thingys.

Carolyn J said...

seems the last decorator literally did not know their a$$ from their elbow.

Anonymous said...

I'm definitely not one to jump on the whole politically-correct "don't offend anyone ever" bandwagon.. But Jen and John are the ones who set the precedent of removing posts which occur at the same time as tragic news stories, so I don't think the people asking about it are being unreasonable at all.

There's just no logic in removing a post about dead horses when a bunch of racehorses drop dead and NOT removing a post talking extensively about eating babies when it has actually happened.

As you say, John, maybe "any other day I would not have been offended," but the same is true for the horse post, too. On a MUCH lesser scale. And you removed it anyway.

I don't think it's callous of you necessarily to leave this post up.. But I think it's callous to outwardly display respect/decorum in the horse situation than in this one.

You don't have to post this comment if you'd rather not.. I'm a loyal reader and will continue to be one. I love this blog and your guys' humor. I just think you've dropped the ball here.

ilovebabyquilts said...

For the record, I never said I was offended, suggested Jenn take the post down or asked for warning labels on this blog. I did say that I WISHED the world were set up with sad baby labels so you're not watching a perfectly fine movie and then all of a sudden sobbing hysterically. Clearly, the world is not. I know that since I live in it. I was just sharing my reactions to the day's post, just as everyone else does each day.

Okay, I finally googled up an image of the "Coppertone Girl" and yes, it's obvious that is what the wreckinators were shooting for. Looking backwards, finger by the mouth, drooping drawers, the whole bit. Just very, very wreckily done. (Serious optical illusion thing going on, it's a arm, no it's a buttcrack, no wait-it's an arm. Absolutely dizzifying!)

Funny that i totally saw a butt crack and had no idea where your third arm was. Yet you can not see the butt crack? All in the perception isnt it.

Anonymous said...

It is without a doubt a butt crack. In Asia having figurines/shirts/cakes of naked babies is considered "cute," especially if it's showing the babies' butts... or babies peeing. I received many a naked baby item while teaching in China.

Christa said...

uhm....I don't want to make anyone mad...but there is a sort of "warning" if you use blogger...one you can read the first line or two in the description before you click on...and the first picture in the post is posted beside said description.
So while I understand that people were "caught off guard" by the realism of the first cake...that was the point of the post. To say this is a wreck, as in not good, don't ever do it again.

Christa said...

omg just read saucy saucier's comment...I almost peed. Cake isn't inflammatory unles you're allergic to gluten....hahahahahaha

CakeWreckConnissuer said...

OK, we seem to have consensus that the 2 appendages on top of the "creature" are arms, and to the bottom right is the butt crack. Enlighten me please as to what is going on below the diaper. Is the kid standing up while looking askance or is he (I assume it's a he) laying on his side?

@ kate thank you!

Surfing the internet and findly two vaguley related posts and complaining about it is stupid.

not everyone runs all the pages of the internet, and not everyone knows about what's going on in a state they may not live in.

Come on, people. Be smart about things. Yes, my gods, that's a horrendous story that I could've gone my whole life without hearing about and now I know about because some crazy person decided to bring it up on one of my favorite sites.

Just another example of the total freedom of information, and how only the user (you) can really find relationships where there are none.

ugh, baby cakes, baby cake makers are bad enough. Just ugh.

Thanks, internet (and humanity) for being horrible.

So, I just discovered this site today after a wonderful friend told me about it. I'm so stoked I found this because it's awesome! On a side note, I should say this, I'm from Texas and I hadn't heard about this incident til now. That either says something about me or my distaste for trashy local news-it'll rot your brain! Secondly, babies die in horrendous ways every day. The cynic in me is sure of it. This one in particular just happened to be picked up by local news. Can you even begin to fathom how many horrible occurrences there are in Africa or the Middle East every day? I may sound insensitve, but babies die every day. People die every day. Does that mean a post about baby cakes should be pulled? No. Keep on wreckin.

I don't want to have the image of killing some poor guy, or shooting random people, or wait..really I can't think of any realistic video game that isn't filled with mindless violence. Is it that I'm ignorant as a Nintendo fangirl, or what?

Yeah, it's way too creepy to cut into a baby cake. Have these cake makers not seen Tom Petty & the Heartbreaker's video for Don't Come Around Here no More with the Alice cake representing cannibalizing Alice?

that really is a butt crack (and no, the butt is not on the side of its body). the baby's butt is supposed to be facing out (at the same time that its face is. child of a contortionist maybe?) think "Coppertone Baby", but a bit more contorted.

This is why I'm glad I don't remeber my third B-day cake. My mom put on an edible photo of my and my dog, Gidget. She is still alive(both my dog, and my mom, this was only 10 years ago!!!), and will be 11 in June of 2011. :D

Check out the schnaz on the sleeping baby cake! The beak is obviously proportioned to match the size of the butt.

As for the three arm debate, I admit I thought the kid was putting one arm down the back of his diaper (a very familiar sight to us mommies and not one to instill an appetite in anyone) until I saw the free floating arm that seemed to protrude from the middle of his chest. Then I adjusted my eyes and saw that it was indeed a butt.

First two questions, maybe, and why not.

Where is the problem with this? We'll eat anything else in cake form fast enough!
