Happy Labor Day!

Monday, September 7, 2009

I'd like to wish you all a very happy Labor Day in true Cake Wrecks fashion.


(So, you know, you might want to put that coffee down.)


Can I get a virtual drum roll, please?





[cymbal crash!]


Amanda N., here's a cake that doesn't need any cutting remarks from me; no matter how you slice it, this baby is hands-down the best gut-buster I've seen in a looong time.

Bonus Pun: Say, do you suppose this bakery delivers? (Booyah!)

That writing on the sign is beautiful... too bad...

MoonManandBallerina said...

Oh dear lord.

Yet another nightmare to haunt me for weeks....

=D

Nani said...

That is the creepiest cake I have ever seen.

frigglesnitz said...

That's all folks? Isn't a birth the beginning? And I don't want to get started on how unappetizing a surgery wound cake is.

WV-eurgin Eurgin see your lunch again if you look at that cake too long.

jenny_is_busy said...

Most of the horrible cakes I see on this site I think I would eat after scraping some icing off.
A C-section cake? I don't think I could go there.
Blerggg

this was great!

Geri said...

Most. Disturbing. Cake. Ever.

You Nanimous said...

This is so disturbing! What is the "That's all, folks" supposed to reference? A much-needed C-section? So strange.

S3XinthePantry said...

No way!!!

(Great puns btw!)

Vickie said...

I will never understand these "protruding belly" cakes! As a woman who's given birth twice (via caesarian section both times), I can't say there is anything appealing at all about eating such a cake. Booyah, indeed!

Heather said...

Looks like that mom was having a c-section...

bad idea for a cake.

Caitlin said...

That is so repulsive! Ugh!

Anonymous said...

my but that's a gross little cake. I've got this sick desire to get one for my friend's baby shower...

Anonymous said...

Oh my GOD! Now I know why my husband was so disturbed by my c-section. Hmmm...I'm thinking anniversary cake here :)

CanCan (Mom Most Traveled) said...

I love the new look! Happy Labor Day! Perfect "labor" cake!

misseditor said...

What a great way to celebrate my birthday -- by seeing this "birth" day cake! (I was born on Labor Day, too) ;) The cake is truly disgusting.

diddleymaz said...

AAGGHHHH! an Alien.

Lesley B. said...

Wow, that is truly disturbing. I can hardly wait for an episiotomy cake! Maybe with licorice stitches! Mmm...

Janella said...

Whoa! Run away, run away!!!

BARGAIN BEX said...

Great. I'm pretty sure I'm going to be too frightened tonight to get any sleep with images of bloody wounds and baby hands dancing in my head. Ew ;)

Janella said...

Whoa! Run away, run away!!

Andrea said...

Perfect.

I love it.

P.S. My word verification to post on your blog is 'hymen'. Even more perfect.

Sharon said...

WTH?

/baffled

"That's all folks?" Just how many babies did the cake recipient have?

Is this an Octomom cake?

I guess we can be glad that's not a Looney Toons hand sticking out.

And 20 lashes with a wet noodle for the bad pun, Jen. =P

Giana said...

*falls to knees, lift hands to the heavens and screams* WHYYYYYYYYYYYY?!?

Annapolitan said...

I don't think I'd want to be in the room when someone cuts into that cake.

The sound of screams are already haunting me.

Lizzy Leigh said...

Is it supposed to be a C-section or a pro-abortion cake? Either way, EEK!

My husband just saw the picture...I think his brain snapped. He's babbling now.

Anonymous said...

ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!

Leslie said...

This looks like a scene from my oldest son's birth video.

Shannon said...

Oh dear. You know, I had a c-section, and I got my beautiful daughter because of it. But that cake....*dry heaving*

Anonymous said...

Wow.
Ugh.
Eeew.
EEEEEEK.
That is THE most gruesome cake yet (I'd I've been a silent admirer or your "arts" for quite sometime.)

Someone is seriously disturbed.
If nothing else, I know *I* am!

thepaperbluebird said...

Yeah... I've had two kids via c-section, and seeing this cake has made me reconsider ever having more children... It's actually making me reconsider eating cake ever again too!

Anonymous said...

...except, um, that's a c-section, which kind of doesn't really involve *labor* (assuming it was planned, since there's a cake and all...)

Rebekah said...

When I was pregnant, I dreamed this exact thing! The baby's little hand popped out of my belly, waved at me, and popped back in. The dream was weird. This is way beyond weird.

Kristina said...

3 kids by C-section here. I really didn't want to know what happened on the other side of the curtain.


wv spliet. How appropriate.

Jaemi said...

I think the cake is celebrating the birth of a baby, and the ending of the mother's ability to have more as in after the baby is delivered she's having her tubes tied.

Just when you think people can't ruin the beauty of cake anymore, you get this.

*deep sighs and head shakes*

the-gersemi said...

I think I just threw up in my mouth a little.
That has to be the single most disgusting thing (I refuse to call it a cake) I have ever laid eyes on.

Lucille Ball Jr. said...

oh wow! what a wreck!

Twistie said...

Proving once again that skill level and taste are not precisely the same thing. The workmanship on it is pretty good, but ye gods and little purple fishes! the concept is both revolting (who wants a slice of a sliced up belly?) and surreal in the extreme (that's all folks???? just the hand???? holding a sign in utero????? Salvador Dali couldn't have come up with that one! and if he had, he'd have slapped himself).

BTW, loving the new look, Jen! Naked mohawked baby carrot jockeys FTW!

jill said...

"Hey! Can I have a c(ake) section? Yeah, just "hand" it over. That looks so yummy, I can't wait to rip into it. Mmmm! Oh baby!"

Cake_or_Death said...

Oh. My. God.

I'm not sure which is more appalling here, the customer who ordered this affront to all good taste, or the other-wise apparently capable person who produced it.

Why, oh why, can these wreckerators not use their skills for good instead of evil??? *sob*

sabri said...

great design! Love the new blog.

I knew that the baby carrot jockeys couldn't be hidden!

Love

**gasp** Ok, it took a full 5 seconds to wrap my brain around what I was seeing, after taking my breath away!! The first second DID NOT see C-section!!! Now the fits of giggles begin!!

Half Assed Kitchen said...

I don't understand that sign. "That's all folks" makes it look likes he's going back IN.

I'm having a repeat section in six weeks...and I'm on OR nurse. That still makes me wanna throw up.

However, I'm having a tubal at the same time, so THAT'S ALL FOLKS! No, dear husband, I do not need a tubal cake.

Anonymous said...

I have a co-worker who will be delivering by c-section this month. For some reason, my sick little mind wants to make this, but with a sign that say "Coming Soon To A Belly Near You!"

Anonymous said...

I'm hoping that is the Octomom's belly with baby number eight coming out. That's all folks should mean she's finally closed her womb!

jess said...

I LOVE it, LOL.
I just really don't get the 'that's all folks' thing???

Dakota said...

Turbopuns!

Mallory said...

You didn't even mention the missing apostrophe in "Thats". It's pretty understandable, though. That cake is gruesome.

Insanity Kim said...

What a way to relive my c-sections, being completely grossed out by a cake. I think I will lose those last 10 pounds now...

Katie Alender said...

Ewwwwwww!

Blecch!

Melinda said...

I had a c-section, it involved more than 16 hours of labor. Good times. Or not, but babies are fun...unless they come out of a scapel wound waving a little banner. Then they're just creepy.

chili pepper said...

OH, NO! Too funny. Just stopped by from heart 2 heart to see what was up here. Happy holiday!

Another,

Kat

Stephanie said...

Oh my word... just when I thought I'd seen all the bizarre pregnacy cakes...
Anyway, the puns made me chuckle. Thanks, Jen. :)

CaryJ said...

Ewwwww. And the Looney Toons writing on the sign isn't helping matters... makes me think that Porky Pig is gonna pop out.

Dani said...

Lol! I'll have to show this to my SIL latter. She's busy at the moment delivering my niece!

Terri said...

I'm guessing next year's Labor Day cake could be a vaginal birth cake, you know where the head is crowning?

deltadawn said...

Very randomly, I read this today: http://snopes.com/photos/medical/thehand.asp

And now this cake.
Weird coincidence!!

Michelle S. said...

What the heck is wrong with people?

Barbara_in_WA said...

oiy.....

Lesley was wondering when the episiotomy cake was coming....I'm waiting for the good old vasectomy cake. mmm mmm mmmmm!
**have a feeling i would have to go to a special kind of site to see that cake**

Becky said...

Oh MY. That's really something. While that cakes themselves might make me think ugh, the comments are great for a laugh.

Rachel said...

I don't understand the sign paired with the C-section. If anything, it strikes me as terribly morbid!

JJ Sobey said...

Ugh. Too. effin. creepy.

Em said...

I'm thinking this may be a retirement cake for an ob/gyn doc. People who work in medicine tend to have a rather cavalier attitude about the whole yuck factor. They sort of have to.

Happy Labor Day, everyone.

Healing said...

Ok, You've found it, the worst Baby shower cake out there. The baby caskets were terrible, the naked carrot jockeys - cute in a disturbing way...this one?? Just wrong, on so many levels.

Thanks Cakewrecks for another wonderful start to a Monday Morning!

Anonymous said...

Ew. *vomits*

Melissa said...

Jen, I think your puns have hit a new low. I'm impressed. :-)

Lisa Leggett said...

Blech... good thing you warned me to put down my coffee... Why? Why? Why would anyone ever think that *that* would be a great idea for a cake? I think I just barfed in my mouth a little.
Thanks Jen...

Suzanne Dargie said...

Maybe this is her last baby, hence the "That's All Folks!"
Dutch you say? My fiancee's Mother is Dutch and the eldest of 16 children! Apparently, when their Grandmother had one of the later Uncles,(who practically FELL out), she looked down briefly and said in a less than enthusiastic tone, "Oh, another boy."
But none were cesareans.
I think that cake is more disgusting than the story I just told!

Kayleen the Violinist said...

Seriously??

blakemp said...

Wow -- a cake that got an audible "Oh my god!" out of me. Brilliant. :D

Erin said...

Eeeeeeeeew!

Sherry said...

If this whole cake wrecks thing doesn't work out, you could surely get a job writing headlines for the New York Post

Emmy said...

Who on EARTH would order this? Or serve it? Or not be appalled by it? And the sign means what? Is it a midwife being cruel about women who take their doctor's advice. Lesley B is right, the only place left to go is an episiotomy cake.

PetalsYoga said...

Oh PUKE!!!!

Horserider said...

Happy holiday! That cake is mildly disturbing...

Jimh. said...

If this had been published in the paper...would it have been in "C-Section?"

I wonder if this cake took 9 months to bake...a long time to have a bun in the oven...Jen, I think you took all the good puns! I can't match you!

Yota Armai said...

The cake is just too odd for words so I'll comment on the puns...AWESOME! You rock!

Anonymous said...

This cake was obviously intended for an obstetrician's retirement party. In that context it makes perfect sense, but is no less repulsive.

Anonymous said...

Things could be worse: the sign could say "Happy Falker Satherhood".

Natalie said...

In the words on one of my favorite bloggers (other than you), sicknast.

P.S. Now that you've got a fancy new blog and a book coming out, are you going to have like 8,000 followers. *listening to whisper in my ear.* Oh. Congratulations, then.

Jerry said...

My husband described our son's birth as "something out of Alien" and I think this was what he had in mind, but without the sign.

That said, Auugh! I so do not want to be there when they start serving this cake (I just hope it's not red velvet).

Awesome new web design, glad to see the carrot jockeys back. And front.

my word-sinestos Sounds like a Mexican cartoon villian.

Angela said...

AAUUUGHHH!!!
THE HORROR!

Paula said...

That is just wrong on so many levels.

GreatBlue said...

Problems with this cake:
1) You are eating an open wound.
2) If you scrape off the wound, you are still eating a pregnant belly.
3) And inside that belly is a baby.

This is among the most disgusting cakes I have ever seen, I read this blog regularly. Ugh.

Anonymous said...

I would like a cake that celebrates my natural birth then, please. Crowning = delicious! I mean, sure, I might have to talk to the local erotic bakery to get us started...

Justy said...

Holy crap, can't believe you all were at Dragoncon too! Wish I could have seen you all, would have been pretty neat for me. I did see the guy walking around with Cakey, and that was pretty cool.

Stephanie said...

love the new look!

Anonymous said...

Somebody get the flamethrower, we've got a chestburster on the loose!
*Cough*
Anyway, I think I'll stay FAR away from this cake. Alien nightmares are NOT fun.

Monique said...

Thanks! I'm going in for a C-section in 8 days. This was perfectly timed!

Ms Avery said...

I spent my morning researching photos of Caesareans for work. And now I come home to this. I think the universe is trying to tell me something. Something unpleasant.

Little Lovables said...

why is the cake all flesh colored on the edges... the the green surgery sheet leave mommy cake exposed?

Marie said...

That was disturbing. Awesome puns though!

Pink said...

The only thing to top this is a vagina cake with the head crowning out. OMG.

Patrice @ The Soap Seduction said...

Ugh...NO! You couldn't pay me to eat this thing with your mouth.

Allie said...

And people wonder why I don't want kids. Ugh.

FelixAndAva said...

Lesley, PLEASE don't give Stevie Famulari any more disgustingly deranged ideas.

StefRobrts said...

Oh my lord! There is simply no end to the horrible baby shower cakes, is there?!!

Judi Hahn said...

The taste for this cake is less than "questionnable", it's plain tasteless; and it's definitely creepy.

Just Me,Pilgrim said...

Three thoughts come to mind:

1.She's giving birth to Bugs Bunny?

2. Who wants to eat an open wound cake...honestly?

3. my stomach hurts... I think I'm gonna hurl... Thanks Jen.

Jamie said...

Oh my god!

Me: Hm what do we have for Labor-- AAAAHHHH!!

*calls husband in*

Me: I will let you scroll down so you can have the same experience I did.

Husband: AAAAHHH!!

Dawn said...

ewewewewew!!!

Rachel Leastlikely said...

oh my god it looks like the baby/creature is escaping into the wound. bye-bye!!

terrifying.

but kind of an interesting juxtaposition, i must admit. looney tunes + surgery...?

Rachel said...

I have a pregnant coworker who is in the next room right now. I think I better not show this one to her. YIKES!!!!!!!

Who would ever think this was a good idea???

Ginger said...

that has got to be one of the most disgusting things i have seen in a loooooooooong time! Even on CakeWrecks....I think I need some brain bleach!

Lindsay B. said...

As an extra added bonus, I was personally born on Labor Day. 2 in the morning. (5 days before my mother's birthday). We take turns once in a while having birthdays on Labor Day. XD

Manda said...

You can't unsee something, though I wish I could. I'm always morbidly curious as to what flavor these cakes are composed of - they wouldn't dare use red velvet, would they?

Jenna said...

Not to mention that the sign is missing an apostrophe.

Lisa P in California said...

That is really disgusting.

marypoppins said...

eww gross!!!!!!!!

Sweet Success said...

That's just wrong.

urbangirl said...

HMMMMMM.... There is defiantly no excuse fore this one....Yuk!

Jennifer said...

So 4 years ago today, my daughter was born via C-section after 4 separate attempts at induction.

If anyone should appreciate this cake, it's me.

Instead, I just threw up a little. And not in a good way.

Grace said...

What did you get in 7 puns in one post - awesome!!!!

Kristen said...

You know, four years ago, I spent Labor Day in triage waiting to find out that my contractions were false alarms...four days later I got to have a c-section...

It's like this post was MADE for me! (But I would have to hurt the person who thought I would like that cake. As in, 20-hours-of-completely-unproductive-labor hurt them.)

Sandi said...

After having my own C-section I find nothing funny or appetizing about that cake.

it. is. horrid.

Ariana said...

I really don't know what to say to that... It leaves you speechless, so I suppose that's a positive :)

Jedi Knight Ivyan said...

Oh dear God, that cake is giving me flashbacks from my own c-section!

deemack said...

OMG...Sorry, but it got me wondering what Porky Pig was doing in there...

Melissa (& Billy) said...

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO*gasp*OOOOOOOOOOOO

brokensaints said...

Open wound cakes?? Ewwwwwwwwwww!

Nicole said...

I just want you to know that this blog is giving me nightmares. Well, not nightmares necessarily, but weird dreams. I went through your blog a bit yesterday after coming home from a long day working as a nurse at a nursing home. I had a dream about elderly people making cupcake cakes. Aaaaaaaaaargh!

--Nicole

Anonymous said...

That cake is awesome...not at all scary, even though that will be me in 5 weeks.

Erica said...

I recently had my son through c-section. After seeing this cake, I'm so bummed that my hubby didn't surprise me with such a creation. The hospital should give these routinely to women who have c-sections. *rolls eyes* That cake is repulsive. Blech.

little gator said...

a late abortion cake was my first thought.

Becky said...

That is truly disturbing. Also an apostrophe catastrophe. "Thats [sic] all..."

glamazini said...

oh. my. God.

Suzy Voices said...

That one really takes the cake. Ba-dum-bump.

Vicki Grafham said...

I'm a labour and delivery nurse and I think this cake is brilliant! We would happily buy this cake and enjoy it at one of our parties-granted we all have warped senses of humour, but you need one to be a nurse, lol!
Well done, whoever made this cake!

Kirsten said...

EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEK.

Oh my lord. That is quite possibly the most disturbing cake I have ever seen. Ever. Ever,

Anonymous said...

Tell me the Dugger's ordered this cake.

Mentalspewage said...

I lol'd hard, and was thankful that it's a C-section cake and not a "natural birth" one as I'd first feared.

Of course, that second one has probably been done too. Ew.

Maggiethecat said...

As my WV I got 'rechly'. Indeed. Actually, I kinda love this utterly gross and repulsive thing, cos I'm thinking it's ideal to serve at a party with all my family and friends who still insist that I should, and/or eventually will, change my mind about being childfree - this might just be what I need to get the message across.

Winona said...

Nice. Considering I just had a C-section one week ago, I love it, actually!!! :-D

Anonymous said...

Oh, I think this is hilarious! Sick and wrong, yes, but it gave a laugh.

Omgosh. That's sick! And I have been in the operating room to see C-sections. UGH! My eyes!! >__<

Candee said...

A little disturbing but funny as heck!!!

JustALittleBit_Me said...

If this is the wrecker's idea of a c-section cake, I would be afraid to see their depiction of a VBAC.

Cake Zombie said...

"That's all, folks"? Seems more like a miscarriage cake to me.

Nic and Amanda said...

I submitted this one...it was a celebration cake for a delivery nurses' last night shift.

Adri said...

Heh. "Labor" Day. I get it. Cute, but disturbing...

ClareH said...

There is nothing about this that celebrates LABOR. A C-section, in general, should not be celebrated, and there is NO labor involved. A bad misguided pun and a very unappetizing cake - on many levels. Disgraceful.

Kathryn Packard said...

I hope "That's All Folks" doesn't mean that's all there is to it, that a c-section is so easy. I've never had one myself (two vaginal births, one an unassisted home birth), but I'm sure there's nothing easy about it. And even if that's not what they're saying, c-sections are nothing to poke fun at...especially with the rate in America at a whopping and unheard of 33%!!!

Anonymous said...

...are we sure that is supposed to be her...stomach? ....or did the baby reach out of the OTHER hole?
