11 of the grossest baby shower cakes EVER

What do you imagine when you picture the celebration for an adorable bundle of joy entering the world?

Baby showers conjure up images of pastel decorations, piles of prettily wrapped presents, twee baby shower games and of course, lots of baby-themed food treats… right?

Well, no actually. It turns out that for some people, a baby shower is just an excuse to show off their skills at creating a massive buttercream vagina – and therefore scaring the life out of the mum-to-be.

Hilarious and horrifying in equal parts, we’ve put together the top 10 worst (but also kinda the best) baby shower cakes we’ve ever seen. We’d suggest that you brace yourselves…

1. The LAST thing you want to see on a cake

Saying no to a slice of cake is usually a pretty challenging task for us, but that probably wouldn’t apply to this – erm – interesting baby shower cake.

Whoever thought of making a cake in the shape of a dirty nappy clearly didn’t want anyone to eat it and it worked – we’ll pass.

2. Yes, that dinosaur is eating babies

Why not kick off the list with something really hard-hitting? In a scene that resembles Jurassic Park crossed with the Rugrats, someone clearly took the baby shower theme to a much darker level.

3. It’s nothing if not encouraging

We’re sure that Kate felt filled with confidence after being given this cake…

The absolute best thing about this beauty is it was baked by the father-to-be’s grandmother, aka legend.

5. When only a Cabbage Patch Doll will do

We would say we feel sorry for the little guy, but he does look quite content.

6. At least she had time for a wax

Have you ever seen such a perfectly groomed landing strip on a cake?

7. The no baby shower baby shower

Not the most conventional baby shower cake we’ve ever seen, this sweet treat was made by a gentleman’s girlfriend in celebration for him getting the snip!

8. Arms first?

We’ve heard of being born breech but we’ve never seen a baby claw their way out of the womb quite like this.

9. Just… the strawberries

A protruding baby head is one thing, but detailing a lady’s insides with chopped up strawberries is just too much for us.

10. Just keep swimming

Well, you can’t say that cupcake work isn’t impressive.

11. Saving the best until last

We have no words.
