Somehow I’m not hungry anymore

Cake Wrecks is a blog which records “when professional cakes go horribly, hilariously wrong”. Some of the examples – well what to say:
The bound foot cake (“Yes, it was for a podiatrist.”)
Says the cook behind this pregnant torso cake served at a baby shower:
Did I mention that this cake was red velvet? Hey, I just do what I’m told to do!!!!!!
On the one hand, both wedding and pregnant torso cakes were requested, it seems, by the women concerned. And the artistry of the cake-making is undeniable.
On the other hand, the image of a podiatrist grinning away as they tucked into their cake shaped like a bound foot? Of wedding guests milling about munching on slices of the bride? Or baby shower guests literally consuming the mother-to-be, considering all that’s been said about pregnant women finding their bodies become public property? Ick.
