You mean Pooh. Poo cupcakes are not something I want to think about.

That's Pooh, with an H on the end. I was concerned.

Poo/halloween cupcakes

His name is "Pooh". I was expecting something completely different before I clicked on that.

Not that fetus cupcakes much more appealing.

That should, of course, be a link to Pooh. Where art thou, edit window?

I vastly prefer the monkey and sheep cupcakes to the fetus/poo(h) cupcakes. Edible photo paper is such a cop-out.

But damn, do I love me some cupcakes.

On the reason for the fetus cupcakes: Mommy wanted to share her last ultrasound at week 30.

DDD:

Still, if you wanted a thread about distasteful or tacky cupcakes I think you could have found some poo cupcakes, with a cute little dog turd frosting on top.

Whenever you get to the point where you are printing or silk-screening onto your food, you have lost your way.

I was expecting the fetus cupcake to be a cute little human tadpole made of frosting. The reality has left me feeling distinctly unsettled.

I'm guessing they were part of a particularly uncomfortable baby shower? With a lot of leftover cupcakes, if I have any company in my unwillingness to bite into a photo-realistic fetus portrait.

Hee hee hee. Years ago my stepson looked at the beautiful chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting that his grandmother had brought out and said "That frosting is the color of poo." Mortified, I squawked out his name and he looked at me, puzzled, and said "Winnie the Pooh," pointing at the Pooh cake decoration on the top.

Apparently my mind is just too much in the gutter for my own good.

My last year of University, one of my classmates was a big Winnie-the-Pooh fan. For her birthday, she was presented with a handsome sheet cake, with the slogan:

"Happy Birthday, Betty!
... we hear you like poo."

The rubber dog turd that was on top of the cake was washed off and spent the rest of the year circulating through the homeroom; every few weeks, you'd open your desk drawer to find it on top of your notes or something. It wound up on the overhead projector for a lecturer who wasn't in on the joke. His mortification doubled when my friend reached up and grabbed it off the projector with his bare hands.

Feed us your fetus!

Cakewrecks has got those fetus cupcakes beat.

Cupcakes are passe anyway; all the hip kids have moved on to cake pops.

Does a fetus cupcake count as a cupcake before it's fully baked or is it only a cupcake after it comes out of the oven?

I keep wishing those fetus cupcakes were made from some kind of pro-life political gathering, with all these pro-life activists standing around eating them, commenting on how great they taste.

One can only hope they were filled with a delicious strawberry or cherry jam.

Great. I have an ultrasound scheduled in a few weeks and I'm not going to be able to un-see those cupcakes. WHY DID I CLICK? WHY OH WHY?

Cupcakes are getting to the point where they're almost as played as bacon.

Seems lately that every 20-something hipster girl I meet is either going to school to get her MLS or wants to open a cupcake shop.

Huh. I believe I read somewhere that cupcakes were being replaced.

You are going to be so totally hungry at that ultrasound!

Did any of those bakers make a fetus cupcake, because if they did I'd love to see 'em. The ones you linked to I see all the time. Actually, scratch that. I don't need to see more fetus cakes.

I like cake

I would be in favour of baby showers existing here if it meant more cake. And I don't even like babies.
