The Search for the World's Most Disturbing Shower Cake ENDS HERE

Friday, July 22, 2011

You know how I'm always telling you baby butt cakes could be so much worse?


Things are about to get so much worse.


Heads up!

Wow. This is so stinkin' sexy, I almost didn't even notice the outie belly button.


Because fetus cookies are SO last year:

Goes great with mother's milk.

And lots of screaming.


Proving once again that bakers are takings posts on this blog as inspiration:

I'm torn (ha! Ew.) between asking what that gray pouch thing hanging out is and desperately, desperately, not wanting to know. In fact, know what? Don't tell me. I'm never having kids, so knowing what the inner lining's poop chute or whatever looks like is just one of those things I never need to know. Seriously. Leave me to my blissful ignorance.


And finally, look. I realize that a lot of talent was required to make some of these wrecks - I do! However, no amount of talent will ever make any part of this look yummy to me:

In fact, you could say the amount of talent a baker has when making a placenta has an inverse reaction to how much I want to eat said placenta.

Or, in other words:

SWEET BETTY CROCKER I AM NEVER EATING AGAIN.


Thanks to Matt R., Sarah M., Carl G., & Heather A. for today's gut-busters. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to skip lunch.

I was eating. Ugh.

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHGGGGGGGGGGGG!!

Steph said...

That placenta is the MOST disgusting thing on any food item I have EVER seen. I have two kids and am a nurse, so I'm not squeamish at all, but sweet baby dill pickles! A little decorum, please. I literally could not finish my delicious breakfast burrito after I looked at the zoom-in of the bowl of HORROR. So, thanks, Jen for kick-starting my diet for me...blech.

elissa said...

Ew. Ew! EW!

WV: sates. ...nevermind.

Donna said...

Wow. Just. Wow.

The first one is disturbing enough in a pseudosexual kind of way...BUT...the last one that poor baby looks like it's about to become a science experiment!

I think I'll skip lunch for the next week or so...YUCKO BUCKO!

April said...

My niece would have liked the last one, but she is an OB nurse, and see's the real thing all the time..lol For the rest of us, yeah, I may never eat again. O.O

Dani said...

Eeeeeew that last one...gurg (covers mouth).

As someone who's trying to get pregnant I'm now scared not only of delivering the baby but also of my baby shower. Yay?

Anna B said...

These are just wrong on so many levels. Please, no acupuncture on a pregnant tummy during a c-section with a partially exposed mama (c'mon now people, I'm having a 3rd c-section in November and this is not the image I want to have in my mind while I'm on the operating table...for any of these cakes). Let's leave the fetal views to the ultrasound techs...and I'm better off never seeing what placenta actually looks like. Had I wanted to see that, I would have gone to medical school - honestly, who would eat that (and better yet, who would PAY to eat that?)

WV: gessen - I'm gessen these wreckerators have never had their own kids, else their taste in cake would be better!

Michele said...

Goodness, that last one is disturbing.

DarkPrincess said...

This reminds me of a woman I used to work with who helped her daughter-in-law home-deliver her last child. She boasted that she "caught" the placenta in a cake pan, to which I thought "I am never eating any baked good she brings in again."

discerningmagpiecakes said...

Ohhhhhhhh, good God. It's a little early for an cake/organ to be that... slimy. :/

So... thanks for that. heh.

omg omg omg i was totally eating breakfast and almost ralphed when i saw the last two....yuck yuck yuck....must go scrub eyes out with bleach and turpintine and whatever else i can find to get the images off of my mind...maybe some steel wool.....

Leslie@leserleeslovesandhobbies said...

Seriously?!?! I do not even want to know what possesses people to think these cakes are a good idea. The first one isn't so bad, but who wants to eat a person? And the last two are a little too realistic. Maybe they were for descendants of the Donner Party?

:::b r a n d i::: said...

NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO

Naomi said...

Cakes #1 and #3: Nuke it from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.

Leah said...

Oh, those are just disgusting. Especially the last one! I could never eat those...Ugh...

Upupaepops said...

I agree

takes skill to create something like the last one

not the question of could you but should you

I am in the sciences and there is nothing I like better than patology

I think the issue for me is that the baby looks dead.

zoomom said...

The close-up of the placenta cake... I actually shuddered. That is so disturbing.
Jen, do you just sit back at laugh at our horror after you post something like this? (I totally would if I were you!)

The Pink Drink Ladies said...

There are no words created that could possibly describe these cakes. I thought the first one was bad, until I saw the next one, which was worse, the next one (in the words of my grandson) worser. Until finally the last one, the worserest of all. Ew

Jayde said...

I wonder exactly how one goes about ordering a placenta on a cake. I mean it's not exactly something that they proudly display after you have given birth or anything, more like something you find in a medical journal. So the customer had to say, "One placenta please" and that baker had to ask, "Placenta? And what exactly does a placenta look like?" I can only imagine the conversation that followed describing the placenta in all it's glory. "NO! More red than pink and make sure you EMPHASIZE those bulging veins!" BLECH!

Loo-E Loo-I said...

Oh my.
Oh. Me. Oh. My.

One word: Wrong!

Wrong wrong wrong wrong wrong wrong wrong!

Did I say those cakes were just plain wrong?

Andrea said...

I actually WAS eating while reading this post. I gagged a bit at the fetus cake, and it just got worse from there. This is most definitely the most disgusting CW post EVER. Much worse than poop cakes!

Well, I've been saying I have to start a new diet (again) and now it will be easy. I'll just put today's post on the frig.

yeah i have a pretty strong stomach but today's post actually ignited a reaction. Having birthed all four of my kids at home with just my hubby, I saw it all. But I never would want to eat any of it! No matter how much I craved a sugar fix! lol

JelliDonut said...

Nasty. Just nasty.

staxia said...

@DarkPrincess "LIKE!" (in a grossed out sort of way...)

wow.

In the grand scheme of things, that first cake is actually not so bad. Mildly disturbing, but not bad at all......

The rest, however, I think are best summed up by today's WV --- "hurlid" -- I hurlid after reading today's post.

Laura said...

Not to disgust anyone further, but did you know that there are people that actually EAT placentas? REAL placentas, not just placenta cake! I saw it on an entry on the STFU, Parents blog. Some mom made a shake out of her placenta and posted a picture on facebook. Absolutely disgusting. DISGUSTING!!!

I wanted to scream after looking at those. I know I gasped at the last one. I agree, that last one is showing a lot of talent to make all of that, but did someone along the way forget that these are cakes? Meant to be eating? And that NO ONE wants to eat that?

Good grief, is that last baby supposed to look like it's dead? What on earth are people thinking of when they order these cakes?

I HOPE the search ends here, I really don't want to imagine what could top these hideous things.

WarLioness said...

I've followed STFU Parents far too long to ever think that people don't actually eat their own placents. I've also SEEN far too many placentas thanks to that blog, but that cake really, well, takes the cake.

I'm going to go curl up in a corner and cry softly into my security blanket for a while now.

Yes, these wreckorators have talent, but do they HAVE to use it for evil??? Cripes. Those are just beyond gross.

If I were ever to be a guest at a shindig boasting one of those things, I'd have to have some serious words with whomever ordered it.

Lindsey said...

I have never before had a physical reaction (besides insane laughing!) to a cake... until that placenta close-up picture. My stomach flipped... and I had just eaten breakfast... I didn't know a picture could honestly make someone sick!

Puppygirl said...

Yes, yes. I know I said back in June (Dexter/CSI post) that it was going to take a LOT more than that to make me lose my lunch.
Congratulations Jen. You did it!

I'm not sure if it was the hand and …erm… worm (?) graphically bursting out of the bloody stomach or the shiny bowl of shiny placenta, but it just goes to show that not becoming an obstetrician was a wise career choice.

Renewing my fatwa/edict/diktat against cakes at my baby shower. (baby carrot jockey cake excepted)

p.s. Who eats that?!?

yeah because leaving the placenta on the baby would have been gross

Childbirth is the most beautiful, empowering, and enlightening experience any couple can share. To criticize those who want to celebrate with cake is just wrong. Disgusting? Disturbing? Worse than poop cake? blech? Ew,ew? Ewwwwwwww? Yucko Bucko? No no no no no?

Just kidding, they're disgusting.

Erin said...

What is funny is that a few posts earlier in my reader was this one from Wilton:

http://www.wilton.com/blog/index.php/how-to-make-a-baby-rump-shower-cake/

So everyone can make their own wreck!! (I like how they pointed out that some people don't like cutting into the baby butt!)

Danger Boy said...

Holy crap! I think I'm still finishing lunch, but only just. That last one is just...WTF material!

WV: pagghh The sound I made when I saw these cakes!

Gary said...

These cakes must be the best appetite supressant I've ever seen. One woman there is apparently going to give birth to two diseased kidneys.


WV: sphygo. The sphygo is portrayed a bit too graphically on these cakes.

ML said...

OMG...

Do these people actually consider that a cake is to be eaten? Who is REALLY going to cut into that final baby?

BLECCCHHH....

Molly said...

poop chute! hah!

Caroline B said...

A well-known tv chef in the UK did this in his show:
"The presenter, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, devised the recipe with mother Rosie Clear for a party to celebrate the birth of her daughter Indi-Mo Krebbs.

The placenta was fried with shallots and garlic, flambéed, puréed and served to 20 relatives and friends as a pate on focaccia bread.

Mrs Clear's husband Lee had 17 helpings but the other guests were less enthusiastic. "

Urgh.....

That grey pouch thing? What no-one tells you is that you have to take that home with you after the birth and keep it in a tupperware container in the fridge until your child is 1 year old.....nope, sorry, can't keep on with that joke, I'm making myself feel sick. Although that last cake produced the first gag reflex I've ever got from Cake Wrecks.

Anonymous said...

I really should not have opened this cake wrecks post today. At 2am this morning I was helping out at the birth of my nephew and had to cut the umbilical cord.
Somehow the real life experience was not as gross as these cakes are. This post almost make me chunder (vomit) all over the room.
I think I need to go find some prozac and wash it down with vodka to wipe these cakes from my memory.

ML said...

OMG...


Aren't cakes supposed to be eaten? Who would EVER cut into that baby in that last cake...or that placenta?


By the way, I think that's supposed to be a leg and foot in the first one. Not exactly to scale with the hand, though...Or maybe an appendix that slithered around the uterus...

Fluffy Cow said...

I miss fetus cookies.

@ Dave and Karlee- forceps. Don't look it up.

Christy said...

1st of all that baby in the last photo should be on a warmer not on the sterile field. Also, that's a rather small bowl for that placenta... Or maybe the placenta is huge, they should definitely send it to pathology.

Who needs Weight Watchers? Certainly not me. All I need to do is reference these photos when I feel like snacking. Kills the urge every time. In fact, I may not eat again. ever.

Julia said...

I'm more disturbed by the dead babies than the placenta. Eating a placenta... well, not my cuppa but rationally is not a bad thing (highly nutritious, nourished the baby, yadda yadda yadda).

Eating a dead baby or foetus though... just leaves me speechless.

Anonymous said...

These are supposed to be edible, right?! My thoughts are a) most of what's depicted (babies aside, of course) goes into the category of "medical waste" after delivery, so who wants to see that? and b) the ladies who gave me a baby shower before my son was born totally would have loved this stuff, so I feel like I have dodged a bullet because thankfully they didn't see these cakes first, amen.

Isolder74 said...

My goodness!

What was going through those baker's minds.? What was going through the minds of the people who asked for these cakes to be made? Don't baker realize how awkward it is to stand there with a knife and try to CUT into a realistic looking baby cake?

I'm pretty sure I might be able to pull off most of those cakes but I'd never go through with it. No one could convince me to make a cake like that especially the last one.

Julie G. from Iowa said...

Ewww, my eyes are bleeding and I'm about to see my breakfast again!!!
As someone who doesn't have kids, doesn't want to ever have kids, this is just too much. I'm with you though in the fact that I really, really, don't want to know what some of that stuff is.

Aron said...

And here we have a whole gallery of evidence to demonstrate that talent and intelligence don't necessarily go together! Some baker somewhere is probably wailing, "but the customer WANTED that!" Really? Hand her a business card for a local counselling service. No one needs to slice into a stillborn child on a sterile field next to an overflowing bowl of placenta, even if it is beautifully rendered in angel food cake. [hurk]

VK said...

Luckily i was not eating breakfast or lunch because out here in malaysia it's way past bedtime, but i'm afraid to sleep now! the first thing i saw on the last cake was the placenta thing - even before you zoomed on it. which made it worse once i was subjected to the gory details....i immediately went over a load of sunday sweets to cancel the effect.

Phyllis said...

Midwife at home birth: "We'll just leave the placenta here."
Me: "NO! Nasty! Dispose of it with the medical waste."

Two weeks later:
Me: "Honey? What's this in the freezer?"

And here I thought the homebirth midwives would take ALL our wishes into account.

WV: Hyphann - the hideous name of Mikkel's sister?

KittyKat said...

I am currently expecting a delightful bundle of joy in September. I have five healthy happy kids playing around me right now. One of them was even born at home. I find birth fascinating and inspiring. I'm actually not completely dreading labor. I'm only slightly dreading it.

These cakes, however, are so disturbing and revolting. I'll probably start having vivid pregnancy hormone induced nightmares about babies exploding out of wrinkly fondant-skin, and the nurses thinking the baby and placenta are there for snack time... AAAAAUUGHHH!

Barefeet In The Kitchen said...

EW EW EW! That placenta just took the cake as the worst wreck yet. I can't believe how well made each of the items was and yet, it's just so very very wrong! Good grief!

Jabby said...

There is seriously something wrong with anyone who would order these cakes and I'm horribly frightened by anyone who would actually *eat* these cakes! I'm going to have nightmares for years to come just from looking at them!! I will send you my therapist bill...

Anne-with-an-e said...

Please, please can we all get together and commission pretty little flower cakes or something innocuous from these bakers? They clearly need to put their talents to use in, um, less creepy ways.

And thank you for convincing me not to slip some cake into my cart when I go grocery shopping this afternoon. My waistline would thank you, except I think Ben & Jerry's might be the beneficiary instead.

Bonnie said...

What disturbs me about that last one is that they went to the trouble to make edible hemostats, but they left everything CLEAN. Birth is DEFINITELY not that sterile. Where's the blood, people??? lol

Aliza said...

It says a lot about how queasy I'm feeling that that last cake didn't make much of a difference. I think the verdict is that I should go home sick. If it was safe to drive. I can use todays CW post in lieu of a doctors note!

I guess I can say that at least the cakes were well-made, and the decorators are talented and put a lot of work into them. Judgment and taste, however...

Pushing the implications of that firmly out of mind, is it too much to ask that the attention to detail extend to such trivial things as oh, I dunno, making the baby look freaking alive?!?!?!

droewyn said...

I really don't think it's right to blame the decorators in this case. All of these cakes were executed well... if they're awful it's because someone walked into a bakery, marched proudly up to the counter with head held high, and demanded a cake that featured half a baby clawing its way out of its mother's blood-soaked ladybits.

What will really 'edge me over a cliff of visual grossness' in terms of cake wrecks: (oh please don't encourage anyone!) p**pcake and p*kecake. Those would be the ultimate!

Tee said...

Good Gravy! Breakfast is coming back and lunch won't go down. =(
Who would/could eat these?

amanda said...

Thanks for helping me stick to my diet today - YUCK!!!

Debbi said...

OK. Just because you ::can:: create cakes like these does not mean you ::should:: create cakes like these. Just sayin'.

Lizzy Leigh said...

Some of these bakers need to never be allowed to bake again! These were terrible!

Mary Jane said...

I think you just discovered a new method of birth control. (Or at least incentive to USE birth control!)

WV: pebuff - to shine up little green peas

Amy said...

By far the most disgusting post I've EVER seen on here. Props!

IrisFleuron said...

AAAAaaaaaggggghhhhhh!!!!

Thank you for making me stick to a diet today, or at least meditate on beautiful things to get that out of my head.

URCK.

Beth said...

PLEASE tell me the placenta is for an L&D nurse/doctor graduation

Elaine said...

Words cannot describe my level of disgust. Seriously...these go beyond tacky, nausea-inducing and low-class.

SugarFrosted said...

The color of the baby on the last cake is awful. Poor thing must've failed his APGAR and is dead. :shudder: Awesome technical work but totally disgusting to imagine eating. Ugh.... Why oh why do people want these cakes? Why oh why do the bakers/decorators agree to make them?

Gramie said...

Gross.

Christy said...

honestly, I have no words - the dumb struck look on my face says it all.

Kathy B said...

Seriously? I have been reading your posts for a long time now, but these are BY FAR the most disgusting things I have ever seen! ACK!

msyendor said...

They're creepy, they're hoary
they're altogether gory
It's Alien Adventures and
it's not a dream.

Deet-dee-dedeedee. No one can hear you scream!

Tune: Animaniacs Adventures?

Jen said...

Oh god...WHHHYYYYY??!!
I had a gag relex to that last one!
Now I'm off to scrub my eyes and try to forget I saw taht!

Sasha (Global Table Adventure) said...

I'm glad to see the first baby isn't coming out of her nipple (!!!!), because that's exactly what it looks like on the FB fan page (I guess because the thumbnail is so small, it makes it hard to see what's happening).

Anonymous said...

wow. Someone once told me that in the NYC stock exchange the hand gesture for too much information is to raise your hands over your head. When I saw these cakes I found my self doing just that. These "moms" who order these cakes are a few fries short of a Happy Meal.

Mimi said...

I have been an L&D nurse. I have been an OR nurse. I have worked in a crazy OB hospital where patients cooked and ate placentas (fortunately not many). One would understand why I don't like meat. Now I'm not sure I can ever eat another piece of cake. In a weird way, thanks, Cake Wrecks. :Q must have been medical people who did those considering the specific setup of the back table. And yes, the fetus looks dead to me, too. BLECCH!

Dana said...

Dibs on the placenta!!!!

Laura Miller Photography said...

WHY ARE PEOPLE ASKING FOR THESE?!?!?! All of these are the kind of cake that they don't just make to randomly sell out of the case. WHO is requesting this? Apparently cannibalism is a real thing not just reserved for murderers? This is EFFED UP. I will have nightmares. lol

Laura said...

Why? In the name of all that is holy? Why!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

Skwishee said...

Ya know, at least it's not *real* placenta. Some people eat those things.

piecesofcandi said...

God, why???? Why would someone THINK any of those would be great... TO EAT or heck, replicate? ICK, put it on a post card.

Cool Fun Facts said...

These are very creative, but still kind of disturbing. =D

Rachel said...

ugh...so disgusting!!!! I am going to have nightmares!!

shewolfe said...

Oh.
My.
GOD!

What are these people thinking?!?

Gina said...

That last one...what is WRONG with people!!!

Betty Martin said...

Please relax about that grey thing!!! I have given birth to 4 children and have been present at the birth of about half of my grandchildren, and I have NEVER, ever, ever, EVER seen anything like that grey bag dangling out. There is no reason for it to be there, it is NOT a part of childbirth. Please just relax, and let it go.
Now the rest of them...I can't help you with. I don't understand eating a newborn, a placenta, and an entire medical procedure and calling it a good time.

Anonymous said...

AHH!!!

Anonymous said...

Some people freeze-dry and encapsulate the placenta. Supposed to help prevent PPD. I never did it, but after the PPD I had with my first, maybe I should have.

Having said that, it does NOT need to be on a cake ever.

Mina said...

I was thinking that the grossness of the last cake was due to the fact that the baby looks eerily still-born. And then I saw the placenta in a bowl. And then I saw the close-up. Seriously. What the hell? I need to go bleach my brain now ...

May said...

I swear, this is the third weird baby shower cake posting you've had since my best friend told me that she's pregnant. She no longer has a choice. She's getting a placenta cake.

People are sick.

No words can emphasize just how disturbing ALL of those cakes are. My initial reactions can barely do them justice:

omg...

OMG, LOL!

WHY, GOD, WHYYYYYYYYYYY???


WV: suppe
Something soupy-looking something something placenta something... *gag*

stuckinmypedals said...

I'm nauseous and scarred for life.

The Baking Pixie said...

I am suppose to have my baby in a few short weeks. I was nervous before reading this post. Now I am just terrified.

May said...

An additional thought:

Does the baker of the first cake understand how birth works?

I had a dream about being pregnant last night. Now I'll have a nightmare about it popping out of my bellybutton with fireworks. It'll be slightly reminiscent of that scene in Aliens that I accidentally saw when I was about four. That particular nightmare has haunted me ever since.

WV: alphob
That black sac-looking thing is technically referred to as the alphob.

For the love of God, why would you want to cut into a baby or a pregnant women for a slice of cake, hope it is not red velvet. Gross

julie said...

There's nothing I like better in a tableau than a display of placenta and a blue/green baby. SCRUMMY!

Anonymous said...

I'm not really grossed out until I remember: These are CAKES! Gack!

Anonymous said...

I would be most unhappy if anyone gave me a cake like that for a baby shower. The surgery one is really scary because it looks like a stillborn ready for an autopsy. =(

p said...

...and then they sliced it and ate it.

Brittni said...

Hahaha well. I will say that after my first daughter was born, her placenta made me feel sick when I saw it, but after my second daughter I just thought it looked pretty cool. They look like trees :) Not that they make appetizing cakes though. Yikes. And this is coming from someone whose midwife cooked, dried, and encapsulated her placenta for ingestion. I was NOT gonna go fry it up and eat it, but I wasn't going to miss out on the benefits of consuming it either. It just looked like a vitamin when I ate it :)

McConnehey said...

Aaaaaaahhhhhhh! That last one looks more like a baby autopsy!

Michelle S said...

Okay I'm gonna say it. Don't mothers actually eat the afterbirth in some cultures? At least the cake version would probably go down a bit easier. Just sayin'.

T Nicole said...

I just dont get why anyone would make a cake that looked like that, with utensils, baby and placenta. Really what is the purpose to something like that? Who makes that kind of request? I dont even know what to say.

erose1244 said...

I am so glad I looked at this AFTER my lunch hour, because O.M.G.

Do people SERIOUSLY ORDER PLACENTA CAKES!?!?!?!!? What is going wrong with the world? What happened to a simple "Congradultions, Its a Gril!" cakes? Weren't we all happier with misspellings? Yes, I believe we were...

Aliza said...

Well, I suppose we should be grateful that (a) the people who ordered these cakes are actually eating cake, not what the cake's representing, (b) these decorators are very talented (picture how bad these would be in hands of our usual Mon-Fri crew?).

And, I do suspect that last one was for some type of medical professional (I still think that the customer is not always right). The first ones in the post may, however, be for some poor unsuspecting pregnant woman... I hope for all of you who said you're pregnant that those who order & make your cakes are CW fans :)

@Sharyn and @Craig... LOL

Lastly: apparently, not everyone is revolted by the last cake. A colleague meandered by when I was posting my earlier comment (1:07 pm), told me to go home by taxi. I told him what I was writing, showed him the post, and he asked for me to send him the blog link. A new CW fan was created by THIS post!!

Molly said...

That last one seriously made me want to vomit. I'm soooo gonna have nightmares.

SuBee said...

Dear Baking Pixie:
Don't be afraid. Childbirth is nothing compared to looking at some of these cakes.

M.A.L. Diaries said...

Wow. Every time I think I've seen the least appetizing cake in the universe (usually on this site!)--I'm wrong. There is ALWAYS a worse cake.

Today's cakes are... wow... someone needs to invent a word for them -- but I can't. Looking at those cakes sprained something in my head.
