32. Grab a Shoe to Smash This Cake

This design is more than a lousy cake; it’s scary for anyone who fears creepy crawlers. Having a picture of the sliced cockroach makes it even worse because even if you like chocolate cake, there is no way I’ll want a piece of it. The only people who would love this creepy cake with bugs are pest exterminators who love their jobs, bearded dragons, fungi, and Entomologists. Any other person, please run the other way. There is one thing that comforts me about this cake: I’m pretty sure this roach cake can’t fly!

31. A Roadkill Cake You Can Keep For Yourself

I want to meet the person who thought this was an excellent idea for a cake because every armadillo in Arizona is not happy about this one. Sure, the raspberry guts look delicious, and I might want to eat the candy rocks, but let us not get distracted by how awful this cake is. I’m sure there is a fascinating story about its creation of it, but having no context is a bit unnerving. My favorite part is how bored the armadillo looks like it’s thinking, “yep, Bob warned me about crossing, oh well.” Now bring me a piece of that cake with guts, thanks.

30. What the In the Teeth!?

If Alice in Wonderland and Stranger Things had a kid, it’s this cake. The pink frosting, pipping work, and berry placement make it look like this was made in the 90s by a delighted but dark grandmother for their goth grandkid’s 15th birthday. Imagine having to slice that cake and dealing with the mouth part, “Who wants teeth in their piece?” I’m sure kids and dentists alike would love extra molars on it to make it crunchier. This fever dream of a cake belongs at the museum of trippy cakes that you didn’t need.

29. Zombie’s Favorite Type of Cake

Did someone say “Braiiiinssss”? This hyper-realistic cake might be too much for some people, but the details, the layer of blood, and the display makes it really cool. If we didn’t know better, it looks like a movie prop ready for the closeup. Maybe I’m turning into a zombie, but I wouldn’t be mad if someone offered me a piece of brain cake, and if it’s red velvet, I’ll take the frontal lobe as a midnight snack. A professional cake decorator definitely made this because it has indeed blown our brains out.

28. Sorry, Scrat, No Acorn Cake for You

One of the most beloved animated movie franchises in the 2000s, Ice Age, will always be an epic cake to have on any birthday; kids and parents will love it, even if Scrat will end with no Acorn. This clever cake sliced in half by a crack is a genius way to have half a cake ready to take home with no mess. Why share half the cake, right? Especially knowing that anything can happen and end up with no cake at all. It is better to think ahead so that you don’t end up like Scrat.

27. Makeup Artists Eat Cake

If you’re a makeup guru, amateur, or love experimenting with makeup, this is the cake to have for your birthday! It’s pretty neat that they added replicas of M.A.C Cosmetics to eat, which we are sure are cheaper than the real thing. Although the brushes look like they can be used for painting your first Van Gogh, it’s a sweet and creative way to make any gal happy. You can now enjoy a slice of cake with fondant makeup while watching makeup tutorials on YouTube and not feel guilty for eating a $20 lipstick.


26. Don’t Call Pest Control — It’s Just Cake

This cake design is one of the cutest cakes to make the list. Just look at those adorable mice enjoying their cheese tower! Your cheese lover friend or family member will really appreciate the level of detail this cake has, from the Swiss cheese holes, the mice hiding inside, to the fondant-covered wood display, which took us a minute to realize that it wasn’t actually wood. All those little touches will make it difficult to slice and eat it, but for the time it stays in one piece, it’s going to be a conversation starter.

25. Mom’s Spaghetti Slaps!

If you are trying to evade carbs, do not look at this delicious bowl of spaghetti and meatballs. But if you don’t care, here, admire this beautiful cake! Not sure why you’ll want to share this dish, but we love the gravity-defying fork on top. The details and messiness of it all make it pretty realistic, and it is also giving us cravings for both cake and pasta right now. Even the countertop plate unites everything together in a very creative way; not sure if it’s also edible, but we might take a bite just in case.

24. Celebrate An Artist with this Unique Cake

We bet you know an artist (or maybe you are one) that will really love this colorful gravity-defying birthday cake! Decorated with everything from acrylic paint squirting all over the cake, a can of paint pouring rainbows, to crayons, brushes, and even a cute canvas with a self-portrait done by the artist. There is nothing wrong with it. The details make the Bob Ross in our hearts smile with joy. Too bad it doesn’t have happy little trees to compliment it, but overall this is one festive cake to enjoy and share with everyone at the party.

23. Hello and Goodbye, Kitty

Who needs to sleep now when you have this creepy Hello Kitty cake staring at your soul? We are not sure if this is supposed to be Kitty with no fur or if it’s an Attack on Titan-inspired, nightmare-fueled Kitty. If it’s the latter, let us hope they can get rid of it quickly. The eyes make us very uncomfortable like it’s staring at our soul and devouring it. If we have to rate this cake, it gets an R rating for “Rats! I never wanna see this ever again!” Do everyone a favor and just go now and throw it in the trash.

22. This Unique Cake Design Will Create a Buzz at the Party

Here’s another cute cake that we can’t get enough of, and we know it will be a favorite on this list. This adorable cake would be perfect for any baby shower or kids’ birthday party. However, we know a few adults who would also love it. The honeycomb surrounds it with the bees protecting the hive or just taking a break. It’s a very simple but genius way to present something sweet at your party and have your friends impressed with it. We wondered if it’s a honey-flavored cake or frosting, but I’m sure it’s a risk since it might attract real bees or yogi bear to your party, especially if it’s outdoor.

21. Is It Ramen or Cake?

After looking at this cake, the cravings for a big bowl of ramen came into my life once again. Not sure if you’ll need chopsticks to eat this fabulous cake, but what we are confident of is that it looks way too delicious to just be dessert. The one thing that gives it away is that the bowl looks more like a flower vase, but it’s very impressive seeing all the details it has to make it realistic. The only thing missing to make this the perfect cake is a nice cold soda on the side and your favorite anime.

20. Keep Your Eye On This Strange Cake Idea

Here’s another Halloween cake that might make you ask, “Why? Why did you do this?” but there is a logical explanation to it: because they can. If the eyes didn’t look so much like boiled egg whites with paint, it wouldn’t be too bad, but there is something a tiny bit charming about it. Maybe it’s the sloppiness of the hanging nerves or that the cake looks store-bought and decorated at home, which is not bad; it gives it some homemade vibes, which we always appreciate. We know for sure that this cake will stare back at you while you eat it.

19. A Thanksgiving Cake That Goes Way Beyond Pumpkin Pie

Thanksgiving is a special occasion to gather with family and people you care about to give thanks for all the good things that happened in the year. However, if you are coming over and bringing a turkey-shaped cake filled with candy corn, you can stay home and think about what you’ve done. The stuffing looks too real, but the lettuce and carrots are reusables from Easter dinner, but the worst is seeing the candy corn. This is why we can’t have nice things and families break apart. Please, do yourself a favor and throw that cake to the raccoons.

18. Cake Coma Is Okay for a Birthday Party

After having eaten many appetizers and a plate filled with food, there have been times that it’s hard to decline to have a piece of cake. So this cute colorful unicorn is in a food coma from overeating cake. That is highly relatable to anyone who had eaten way too much. What makes it even better is seeing that the cake is missing a piece and that the unicorn has frosting all over it, showing that it is the culprit of the crime. If there were a mascot for birthday parties, this would be the perfect character to have.

17. Stay Hydrated with this Strange Cake Design

We have seen a few medical desserts before, but this one has to be the most detailed, especially that IV bag which almost looks real if it wasn’t because we know it’s not. It doesn’t look appetizing at all, although it might keep you hydrated since, you know, it’s supposed to be a sterile water bag. If you have someone that works in a hospital and you need to buy them a cake, there is always the option of ordering a cake that doesn’t look so odd. Just a basic cake would do just fine sometimes.

16. A Realistic Animal Cake, But Why?

This one takes the “cake” for looking extremely real, and if you are scared of snakes, I’m so sorry, but look at this impressive cake! If it wasn’t because there is a picture of a slice already cut, you might think it’s the real thing. The detail in the nostrils and scales is fantastic, and we are hopeful that the person who got this cake loves snakes because that can scare the bejeezus out of anyone. Congratulations to the baker for doing such a great job; the cake looks moist and delicious.

15. Warning! This Bachelor Cake Is Out There

We need to put an NSFW warning before this one because, holy cow! We suppose that this is a bachelorette cake that instead of going the phallic route, they went the other raunchy way. Not sure if she’s lying on a bed or a hat, but so glad that at least she has a blanket to cover half of her body. The blank stare at the nothingness makes us think she wasn’t too satisfied by the cake, or at least we hope it’s that and nothing else. Guess congratulations are in order… hoping that a lifetime of shacking keeps you satisfied, Dee!

14. This Funny Cake Design Reminds Us to Please Flush

Poop jokes, in our humble opinion, are always funny, mainly because it’s something that everyone does. So for someone to order such a massive piece of art is to be admired. We are sure a funny dad requested this funny cake for his son as payback for clogging the toilet so many times throughout the years. The poops themselves are so adorable, especially the little one we want to take care of forever. The big one is just floating in what seems to be toothpaste, but we hope it’s just gel because that has to be nastier than the stuff on top.

13. A Baby Shower Cake That Is a Bit On the Big Side

There is something so creepy about babies on cakes, and we couldn’t put our finger on it until now. Sometimes, they only include half the baby, so it just feels like it’s part of a horror film. This one looks well made, and even the tissue paper seems almost natural. Nevertheless, the baby part is so unnerving. Those toes remind us of the old Cabbage Patch dolls with weird feet. We know this is supposed to be a cute cake for a birthday, but it’s hard not to think about it, so we now share our thoughts with you.

12. The Perfect Lumberjack Cake

There is absolutely nothing wrong with this cake, it was just too cool not to add to the list. It is incredible how they replicated a piece of lumber with an ax that looks like it’s edible too. However, the coolest part is inside the cake with the plaid pattern. The way it was perfectly made makes us think that this is the work of witchcraft. There is no other explanation. We are sure there is a logical explanation but since we don’t have the knowledge or the energy to google how to do it, let us leave it like that. This is the perfect cake for the lumberjack in your life or the grunge 30-year-old that can’t let their plaid shirts go.

11. Smile and Say Cheese!

If you thought: who left their canon on top of the cake? That is part of the cake, so please leave it where it is, Susan. This birthday cake is simple, with not much going on, except for the big camera that looks almost legit. The baker did an exceptionally great job making it look real, and they succeeded. The only downside is that if someone decides to take a bite on the camera, they will end up with black teeth for at least a week. So please, think twice before eating black fondant; protect your teeth first.

10. Bazoonkas!

When you have gal pals as good as to make you a cake when you get a breast enhancement, you know they are legit the best. Don’t ever let them down, or We will hunt you down and force you to apologize. There are two reasons why this cake is impressive; the first one is the cord work, and the second is the message which is primarily a dad joke, so there is a possibility that their significant other did this. We bet you thought we were going to talk about the twins, but this time, let us admire the fantastic work they did on them.

9. Someone Needs to See a Dermatologist

This funny cake is definitely not for everyone, especially people who think it’s nasty popping pimples. Not everyone is Dr. Pimple Popper, but making a cake that you can pop pimples before eating sounds unappetizing. The head is a replica of the poor guy in Operation, which makes us wonder if the guy has too many health problems and should consult other doctors.

8. A Porcupine Cake From Hell

Not sure if this is supposed to be a Pokemon or alien, but there is something about putting teeth on your cake that just looks too horrifying to make it delicious. Even though the spikes seem crunchy, and we want to eat them all, that face that only a mother would love is too uncomfortable to sink your teeth into. The dry coconut flakes at the bottom almost look like mozzarella cheese that the baby Demogorgon was enjoying before being trapped. The best thing you can do is get a fire thrower and kill that creature from hell.

7. All Picky Eaters Will Fight Over These Veggies

Some kids hate eating their greens, and parents have to find very sneaky ways to convince them that they are suitable for you and delicious. But when everything fails, and you know a baker that can do wonders with fondant, get a cake that looks like asparagus and eat it by yourself as a reward for your failure. Maybe if your kids see how in ecstasy you are eating it, perhaps you can slip some real asparagus on their plate and see where it goes. Sometimes betrayal is better served as a cake.

6. Fashionista Extravaganza!

Here is another creative cake that looks too expensive and realistic to eat. This Louis Vuitton bag cake looks fantastic, even if the added scarf almost looks like a pair of briefs which we know wasn’t the intention, mainly because there’s a high probability that Meri would not want that type of clothing for her cake. Overall, it’s a well-made bag that might leave anyone guessing if they should eat it or just grab it and go shopping on Hollywood Boulevard. Any fashion designing fan would love to have one, mainly because it’s going to be cheaper than getting the real deal.

5. Here Is a Vegetarian’s Least Favorite Cake

Some will find this savory cake God’s gift for any carnivore, but for some, this is just the nastiest thing you have ever seen. Bacon’s popularity has slightly slowed down over the years, but not enough to still see it pop up every now and then in new dishes. The sweetness and saltiness are a really delicious combination for the taste buds. But in our humble opinion, it’s just too much bacon. You’ll need at least two Pabst Blue Ribbon to fit in with it to eat this. We can hear PETA screaming in the distance; it’s time to move on.

4. If Only She Knew She Had the Power (to Create Creepy Cake Designs)

Here is a fantastic way to show a Stephen King’s Carrie fan. These cake bakers want to pour pig’s blood on the top of your head with this beautiful homemade cake. Although it is very amateur-ish, this bloody mess is so creative that any fan would appreciate how good it is. The cherry on top is the note glued to the cake with a quote from the film. Of the funny cakes on the list that have blood, this is the one that goes well with it, just because any horror fan will be thrilled by it.

3. The Best Cake for Any College Student On a Budget

Every college dorm across the nation knows way too well that when you’re on a budget, a $1 bowl of ramen will do the trick of filling your belly. So a cake in the shape of a bowl of ramen sounds like a dream! The glossy finish of the noodles and vegetables gives it a wet detail that goes perfectly. It’s even better than it has the name of the owner, in case anyone mistakes whose cake is in the public fridge. So happy birthday Jacob; I’m sure that cake will keep you full for weeks to come.

2. This Unique Cake Wants Pigs You to Celebrate Pigs In the Mud

Here’s another adorable cake for anyone who loves bacon, but in raw form. These cute piggies having a nice mud bath is what we needed to bring a smile to our faces. The creative part of this is having Kit Kat candy bars as the bath walls; it’s a more straightforward solution than having to make logs out of fondant. Moreover, finishing everything with a nice bow to hold everything together makes it a lovely cake for a picnic or outdoor birthday party. We only hope that the submerged pigs that are only showing their butts are alive and well.

1. There’s Nothing Like a Funny Cake Design That Talks About Crapping Your Pants

After going thru the toilet paper shortage in 2020, seeing a cake version of a roll seems appropriate in this climate. The dad jokes on the cake are way better than anything we would come out with, so we are not even trying to come up with a toilet paper joke. The cake is already doing our job for us, so let’s appreciate how well made this masterpiece of a cake is. Greg must have gotten super excited seeing their 50th birthday cake, too. Let us hope they didn’t use the fondant paper roll to do the deed in the bathroom.
