Baby Shower Cakes That Make You Go, Hmmmm

A cake certain to make the baby shower hostess the butt of many jokes:

Well, this is just all sorts of wrong, isn’t it?  I mean, everybody knows you’re NOT SUPPOSED TO LAY A BABY ON HER STOMACH, a fact that’s been drilled home several billion times by my baby books —

What’s that?  Oh yes, that IS a headless baby, isn’t it?  Huh.  Ah, nothing says “have a healthy, happy pregnancy” quite like a beheaded baby dessert!  Suppose that renders the whole laying-baby-on-her-stomach argument moot.

Even the teddy bear is bowled over in disbelief.

    It could have been a loaded nappy!

    I mean without the baby – just the nappy, full of you-know-what.

    Let’s hope it wasn’t a chocolate cake!

      @ Moonlight Dancer: I shall be forever in your debt for curing me of a lifelong chocolate addiction.

    I’m not sure if I’d be more grossed out by eating the diaper or the severed infant legs.

    There is nothing wrong with the idea of the cake at all. This is a CAKE, not a human baby so calm down. Every mother should already know not to lay a baby on her/him stomach.
    The cake itself, was poorly done, the fondant on the entire cake wasn’t smoothed out at all.
