And I wouldn't worry about the guests at the shower turning their noses up at you because your name is attached to this particular cake, because I am sure if they are friends of the customer ordering the cake they will see it as lightheartedly as your customer.
It seems that a lot of ljdills' post refers specifically to mine, so I am chosing to comment on it. Please do not attempt to know whether or not I have a sense of humor. I don't know you, and you certainly don't know me. For the record, I have 3 kids too, and have dealt w/ plenty of poop and pee in my lifetime! I can laugh about any and all of it (and have, and still do), but I don't have to want to EAT or CREATE a replica of it! Same reason I don't like doing dog or animal cakes - I don't want to cut up (and eat) the family pet, ha ha.
Please don't take my comments as being "uptight" - I was really clear about stating that it was MY preference to chose what type of cakes I make, and I was only stating that - not attempting to convert anyone to my way of thinking! That's always been one of the many things about CC that I love - the ability to share all different viewpoints and perspectives, and be accepted regardless.
I think if you want to disagree, say so. But don't make comments that are personally directed at the poster you disagree with. It's not in keeping with the spirit of CC - again, my opinion.
