Are they cakes of women going to the bathroom?

But how does the baby taste?

My guess is pretty bad. Fondant icing is pretty terrible stuff, and that baby is covered in several layers of it.

Wow, impressive.....but I don't see the point of a "cake" of this kind, if no one's going to eat it. Wouldn't it serve the same purpose if it was made ouf of clay and paint?

That is fairly creepy.

Great stuff!

I've TiVo'ed a couple of episodes of Ace of Cakes and the birthday and wedding cake challenges on Food Network Challenge. It's interesting to watch these artists at work.

Not to nitpick, as I could never do anything like this, but the cake toppers don't really look like their source pictures. The "trekker" lady, for instance, comes out looking like Dave Grohl.

My wedding cake was covered in fondant. And it was delicious.

Who would actually order/eat the baby cake? "Oh let's celebrate you're having a baby by cutting this one open and consuming it!" ugh.

We should have a MeFi cake commissioned. Y'know, a Fondant trondant.

I like the taste of fondant on my wedding cake, but my husband thought it was terrible stuff.

I love Ace of Cakes and all the cake competitions on Food Network, but when they aim for realism, most end up looking fairly crummy.

I've yet to see anyone top Mike's Amazing Cakes. He wipes the floor with Duff and pretty much everyone else. Some of his cakes are too uncannily realistic.

(that baby looked like hell and watching her make it, made me feel slightly ill)

Better to order a placenta. Filled with creamy nougat.

You have made my week, sir.

These are beautiful, except for the creepy baby. Pinky, you beat me to posting the Mike's link. They're really amazing.

Yeah, I don't get the baby factor. I can't see anyone actually eating that at a baby shower, and if you're not going to eat it, why bother with a cake at all?
