The miracle of birth is a truly, truly beautiful thing.
These baby shower cakes are not.
While great swathes of the global population celebrate the arrival of new life into the world with all manner of heartwarming ceremonies, in parts of the Western world it has become a custom to throw a baby shower complete with a novelty cake.
Generally, these cakes are a thing of beauty but sometimes they go horribly awry and we have the photos to prove it.
Be warned: these are not for the faint of heart.
We get where they're going with this but that protruding foot just makes us think of 'Alien'.
Ingenious use of the baby scan but hot pink and zebra print? Really?
What the hell is that 'baby' suspended in? To be fair, this is probably quite realistic but still utterly gross.
Is this fondant woman delivering her own baby? Excellent eyebrow detail, really exemplifies the excruciating pain that is childbirth.
Ah yes, remember in the olden days when babies were delivered through the mouth of a lion?
A bun in the oven! Literally! Seriously though, WTF?
What is in that bowl?!
And now for the action shot cakes...
I never want to eat a strawberry again.
It just makes me sad to think of the poor Cabbage Patch Kid who was decapitated to make this horror show of a cake. They have individual names you know!
NO NO NO NO NO.
