A Womb with a View

Friday, July 24, 2009

Sure, torso cakes are kind of freaky, and eating cake babies can be off-putting, but what else is there for the baby shower hostess who wants to creep out her guests under the guise of serving a scrumptious treat? Is there nothing new under the Wrecky sun?

(Hah, like you don't know the answer to that.)

Presenting...the sonogram cake!

Thank you, edible image printing and 3D ultrasound imaging! Who knew two technologies could come together to create something so deliciously horrifying?

Now, don't get me wrong: I appreciate that sonograms allow moms to get an advance viewing of their little bun in the oven - I do. And most of these cakes are actually really well made, too. But let's face it: these new 3D sonograms look like they were directed by M. Night Shyamalan.

Look into the hollow eye sockets of this shadowy visage and tell me the truth...

...are you feeling hungry?

And check out the contrast on this one: it's all sweet pastel ribbons & bows, but with a doorway into the Twilight Zone:

That bear's face says it all: "What kind of filling did you use?!?"

Compared to these, the more traditional sonograms look positively cuddly. They still make for some Wrecktastic cakes, though:

Hmm. What do you suppose it really is, Hannah M.?

And if you think that airbrushing is bad, check this out:

I think that's supposed to be a side view of the mom's torso, which makes her...a headless nudist with a skin condition? Mmm, tasty.

And you know it didn't take long for someone to combine these two ideas:

"Hey, y'all! Come check out this black & white TV lodged in my belly!"

Thanks to Wreckporters Kathleen E., Connie P., Thomas S., & Summer R.!

These distinctly remind me of Teletubbies.

Might as well put an image of one of Gottfried Helwein's Sleeping Angel pictures on a cake.

Since most of you probably have no clue who Gottfried is, let me just say he's done album artwork for Marilyn Manson and Rammstein. So yeah, creepy stuff.

i just noticed that on the "headless nudist torso" cake, the bottom side has building blocks that spell out "AXEL"... huh??

makes the cake even more wrecktastic!

Hahahahahaha - that last photo clearly reminds me of Teletubbies!

Oh, and with new developments in edible ink printing and computer scanning, I think that old-timey post-mortem photographs would be next! (For Halloween 2010, gimme a cake with an edible-ink ambrotype of some kid in a coffin propped on an angle supported by a wall or chair! It's gonna be a hit!)

Gracious. I guess I'm a bit old fashioned but I just don't agree with the idea of showing a fetus on a cake like that.
