I ripped off this photo from Facebook. It's been around awhile. Last year, I shared it on my timeline and got a lot of disgusted comments from people. Because I like to be provocative sometimes, I also shared it this year...
If this is yours and you want me to remove it, let me know... But I won't remove it just because it's gross looking. I have a point to make.
At first blush, this photo is shocking. The "baby cake" is very realistic looking and it looks like you're hacking up an actual infant. I will admit, I was grossed out when I first saw this cake. A lot of my friends were actually angry to see it.
However... if you stop and think about it, this is actually a really amazing creation. And it is really just a cake. You're not hacking up a baby. You're hacking up someone's artistry. At least they had the decency not to use strawberry or raspberry filling.
I still probably wouldn't eat this if someone served it to me. It's disturbing and weird. However, I admire the creativity that went into this... even if it kind of ranks up there with the tasteless Cake Wreck I wrote about a few years ago.
