My Ugliest Cakes
From a time before Wicked Goodies, I give you
Highlighting some of the most ridiculous cakes that I have ever made
[BEWARE: photos of X-rated cakes are included]
Alien Birth Cake
This cake topper is from the scene in the movie, Alien, when the baby alien critter bursts out of the sick guy’s chest. This creature was made from marzipan and jello with whittled pine nuts for teeth.
3D Armadillo Cake
I carved this 3D sculpted armadillo out of cake then decorated it in modeling chocolate scales, claws, eyes, ears, nose and tail.
Taking Out the Garbage Divorce Cake
I was given very specific instructions for how to decorate this custom “Taking Out the Garbage” cake in honor of someone’s divorce. I was to include edible trash cans, trash bags, rats, rat poop, McDonalds fast food wrappers, spilled beer cans, a candy cane, and the ex-husband’s legs sticking out of a barrel. I made all the decorations from modeling chocolate.
Berry Blob Cake
I made this berry cake with meringue frosting then left it in the sun for too long.
Mascot Torso Cake
I don’t know which is uglier: this school’s mascot head or my giant cake version of it.
Too Much Garden Cake
The lady who ordered this garden cake for her daughter’s first birthday was firm about how she had better get her money’s worth of decorations “or else.”
Cheesy Wedding Cake
I went through this phase of dressing up cheese wheels to look like wedding cakes. The top tier on this one was kinda stinky! No, the trend did not catch on.
Road to Nowhere Cake
This was my first attempt at a spiral pathway that unfortunately did not lead to the top of the cake as planned.
It was also my first attempt at gumpaste figurines, unfortunately for this lumpy couple. But hey, marriage IS kind of like crazy gluing two mitten hands together.
Ugly Present Cake
Above was one of my first fondant-covered present cakes. Now look how much better I can do it.
Sad Cake Monster
This sad monster birthday cake was not supposed to look monstrous but the white chocolate ganache came out so green and runny that it looked like slime. I improvised by adding two ping pong ball eyes and a blue smile, which gradually ran into a frown. Two lit candles represented the nose.
The rest of the cakes are

Spooky Nipples Fornicake
Before I mastered the art of edible nipples, I made the above fornicake decorated with two peaches, a chocolate-dipped banana, two marzipan nut truffles, and chocolate shavings.
Wee Prick Cake
Here is another early fornicake with a tiny marzipan pecker on a bed of shaved chocolate pubes.
The birthday boy had to eat it.

Every baker starts somewhere. How awesome it is to laugh at ourselves now! lol
Thanks for the encouragement to look at past work and see how far I have come!
Oh my gosh! I am amazed at how far you have come! And it gives me hope for myself. That present in comparison to what you can do now. F-Ing incredible!
And when I look at the detail and absolutely stunning work you do. I truly can say that you have obviously worked very very hard, and I hope you get every single bit of happiness and success you deserve..
Also, your marzipan penis was easily the best I’ve ever seen. That’s compliment one you should hold close to your heart.. As a proud penis sculptor.
Well those were hilarious. I’m feeling okay about my skull cake now. We are all beginners at some point haha.
Absolutely we are, Darling! I bet you are your own worst critic.
now I really needed a smile tonight and you gave me one……..thanks
I said on CC and I’ll say it again – you are an absolute treat! I can’t get over these pictures or your captions. You are hilarious and koodos to you for posting these – it shows a lot of character. But it also shows so much growth! I always think professional bakers come out of the womb making magnificent creations. No, we really all do start somewhere. Thank you so much for sharing.
Thanks! Glad you enjoyed it!
wow you have come a long way lol how long have you been decorating? i love to go back and look at my first cakes because it shows me how much i have learned and gotten better. i still learn something new everyday. thanks for sharing. have a great day.
Brenda, agreed! It’s fun to see the progress. I started 20 years ago, and I have lifetime’s worth still left to learn.
I thought the spiral cake was really pretty.
