You might remember the woman who found herself with a penis-shaped cake pan and attempted to find creative ways to use it. That was satire. This birthing cake is not. The Pinterest user who made this cake — featuring a strawberry vagina giving birth to doll head — and posted it with the caption: “The Baby shower vagina cake I made for my best friend! So funny yet so disturbing♥♥”
And she’s not the only who’s minus a best friend after showing up at her baby shower with a bloody vagina. There are vaginal funeral cakes and crowning uterus desserts all over the internet. This leads me to believe that birthing cakes are a thing now. I’ll begrudgingly participate in the poop in the diaper game, but I flat-out refuse to eat a slice of labia/uterus /fetus layer cake at your baby shower, even if it’s made out of chocolate sprinkles and pink buttercream. Sorry, it’s just going to work for me. [Mommyish]

Celebs are always throwing parties, so it’s no surprise that sometimes their tacky, weird, over-the-top or just plain fugly invites get leaked. The Kardashians are particularly bad at keeping their private events, well, private. The funny thing is, it’s pretty easy to tell which invitation came from which celeb. So let’s play a little game. After the jump, match the invitation from Column A with the celebrity who sent it from Column B. I’ll post the answers in an hour in the comments section. Keep reading »
Baby showers haven’t changed much over the years. Guests, usually women, are forced to play silly games like Pin-the-Pacifier-on-the-Baby and that Don’t-Say-Baby safety pin game. Then, there’s the über-gross melted chocolate in the diaper thing that’s supposed to be funny but is simply disgusting. And don’t forget the obligation most guests feel to ooh and ahh at everything cutesy.
However, I went to a baby shower on Saturday expecting all these things and was actually rather surprised and relieved to find out it wouldn’t live up to my expectations. Keep reading »
