The Labor of Love

Wednesday, January 13, 2010

Sure, you could go with rubber duckies and baby blocks, but that's sooo last decade. Today's shower cakes are all about the biology of baby-making: tasty and educational!


And while you're at it, why not congratulate dad, too?



Of course, mom also did her part:

(Whoah, whoah, whoah! TMI, Dad, TMI!)

You could even illustrate the whole process with the aid of disturbing plant analogies:

(Raise your hand if you're going to have nightmares about daisies sprouting Alien-style from your midsection tonight. Anyone? Anyone? Just me? Alrighty, then.)


Granted, the process doesn't always start exactly the same way:

Thank goodness that cup is labeled. Otherwise, we'd have some concerned coffee drinkers on our hands right about now.


And what does all this love math equal?

(No, your eyes do not deceive you: that IS a Fetal Bite cookie in that there uterus cake. Excellent.)

And that brings us to the Big, Life-Changing Moment!


AAAAAAUUUGGGHHHH!!


Yep, I'm changed for life.

NOTE: No, I'm not I'm trying to tell you something with this recent rash of baby shower posts. Are you forgetting this post? And this one? I just figured baby cakes in January made sense: new year, new babies? Yes? No?

My dad is an obstetrician. Who used to bring home movies and slideshows occasionally (especially great when it's microsurgery and you see a giant thumb and Dad says, "Hey, look—it's me!" Really). And he sometimes discussed his operations at the DINNER TABLE. Yet I am sure that even he would be incapable of eating these cakes, let alone looking at them. Work/science and leisure time/celebration...there's a LINE, decorators!

LOL, those are hilarious cakes...keep them coming...

I think what's nastier about that rainbow cake is that shiny gel that they used. Ugh.

2momfam-

The rainbow cake made me laugh so hard I almost wet my pants! My wife drinks coffee obessively and I HAVE to show it to her. This looks like something our friends would be bringing to the shower hahaha!

Absolutely horrifying! TMI doesn't quite cover it.

I thought the one with the shot glass meant that she'd finally managed to get knocked up after an evening out partying.

You might be a redneck if your babyshower cake has sperm on it...

Five Star Dime said...

No thank you..
I would never eat these cakes, I'll pass and take a sip of my drink at a babyshower where they serve a cake like that...Sperm shaped cookies...* Shaking my head*.

Did anyone else read #2:

"Congratulations

Right on Jason"

as if it were offering congratulations on the cake recipient's aim for getting the sperm with goggles "right on Jason" because of the lack of punctuation?

kristin catch that baby!!

Ok, am I weird? I actually like the last one, even though the boobs are kinda lumpy. Don't get me wrong - it would be totally weird for a baby shower, but very cute for a new obstetrician.

The uterus one creeped me the hell out, though! I think it's due to the fact that someone is going to eat that fetus.

Mark Thuesen said...

if you want to make sure no one will eat your cake, put baby making themes all over it, and you will have the whole cake to yourself!

How in the world did I ever miss this post??!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!

Why didn't I find this when I planned my boss' shower last summer?!?!?!?!

As Aria said, "When you've had to go through something out of the ordinary to conceive, sometimes a little humor is in order. :)"

Exactly, my dear.

The rainbow cake was for a friend of mine. And no, that's not QUITE how they ordered it. But yes, that is the message - there wasn't a man involved. (and yes, she was ECSTATIC that her cake made it onto CakeWrecks, by the way)

But for everyone FREAKING THE HECK OUT about OMG HOW COULD YOU SHOW THESE TO PEOPLE, EVERYONE AT THE SHOWER WOULD BE HORRIFIED - use your brains for one second, okay? The kind of people who would ask for cakes like these are CLEARLY not the kind of people who would be having the stereotypical baby shower, with cooing women in pastel dresses playing stupid games. Yes, those kinds of people would be horrified by these cakes - but they also wouldn't be friends with the people who ordered them. Simple logic there, folks.

(yes, I know, "logic" and "the internet" are generally diametrically opposed...)
