Baby Shower Cakes: So Real You Can Taste It

Behold this disturbingly realistic baby shower cake from British sugar artist Michelle Wibowo.  (Ed. note:  If I had a title as cool as “sugar artist,” I would require that everybody address me as such, like a doctor.  “Hi, I’m Sugar Artist Candy Kirby.  But you can just call me Sugar Artist Kirby…”).   It is SO real-looking, in fact, that it’s a baby cake only Jeffrey Dahmer could truly enjoy digging into.

Also, given all the life-like features, I have no desire to find out what the “surprise filling” is.  But kudos to Sugar Artist Wibowo for the amazing attention to detail!


Candy Kirby is the founder of The Laughing Stork and a professional fun-maker who will never stop chasing her lifelong dream: to find the Pomeranian or porn star after whom her parents must have named her. A humor columnist for Disney, Nickelodeon, Scary Mommy, Reductress and Redbook, she also used to be a staff writer for the soap opera, The Bold and the Beautiful, where she penned many scripts featuring prolonged heated stares and countless “Who’s the Daddy?” story lines. Candy lives in Los Angeles with her husband, two young kids and three rescue Persian cats, the latter of whom are the real brains behind this operation (so send all complaints to them).
