  1. I think these cakes are absolutely adorable, but I don’t have to cut into this cake. When I think about it in the aspect of cutting it up to serve to people the cake goes from adorable to grotesque really fast! I have done multiple’s of this cake, everyone having a baby around here wants one of these bad boys. They are pretty quick to put together and get out the door, so I enjoy making them, but I always make a face when the momma to be sends me a picture of the cake receiving it’s “C” section!

    • I wasn’t that crazy about them, but I made one for my daughter in law on request and everyone loved it! I agree that the proportions need to be correct and they need to be tastefully done. It’s not a bachelor party, and to much boobs is creepy for a baby shower.

  2. I think this one is cute; however, I do not enjoy the actual baby cakes. I saw one that was a Red Velvet cake with some sort of red filling. When it was cut it looked like they were cutting up the baby. I did not enjoy that and I don’t think I would ever make one.

  3. I agree with some of the other posters….as long as the proportions are right they are ok. I wasn’t crazy about them but my cousin’s daughter requested one and I was very happy with how it turned out. What I DON’T like is when they are done with the foot impression on the belly. That actually grosses me out a little…haha.
