We don't want to totally hate on baby showers. They can be perfectly lovely. It's beautiful to celebrate a first-time mama's soiree into motherhood, and we're so down to attend a party that's all about pastels, floaty attire and babies — it's just that sometimes things go awry.
Perhaps it's a quest to escape the overly-feminine, cheesy cliches which usually haunt baby showers that cause some people to over-correct and attempt to make the event humorous. And while it's healthy to joke about human life-events like the miracle of birth, sometimes said jokes turn out a little... off. And it's not just the (mostly) lame party games we're talking about here.
The cakes. We're talking about the cakes.
You'd be surprised to learn that it's not uncommon for baby shower cakes to be so bizarre, we're not so sure we could even eat them. And that's a bold statement. Don't believe us? Check these out.
