Funny Cakes

Sometimes people send me funny things. Like Craig’s sister, Kristen. She sent me a picture of this cake she and her friends made for Easter featuring Jesus.

Kristen writes: “Here is Jesus standing next to his tomb. It looks like one of his arms is buried in the rock, but it’s not…he only has one arm! He’s a one-armed Jesus. He was the last Jesus left in the store and Amy got a discount on him. That small blob of cake next to the big blob is supposed to be the boulder which Jesus rolled back in order to escape his tomb.”

A few months earlier, Leah of Pink Leahtard sent me a link to her iPod cake which isn’t so much funny as impressive:


Have you made a funny cake recently? Post it to Flickr and link to it in the comments. Just not the kitty litter one, thank you.

  1. All right, so it’s not a CAKE, per se . . . it’s cupcakes. Turkey cupcakes, for Thanksgiving (not all of us like pumpkin pie!).

    The candy corns were a little tough to find after Halloween, but are imperative for both the feathers and beaks. The body is a mini Charleston Chew, and the wattle is red frosting. These were a big hit . . . tasty AND adorable!

  2. LOVE the one-armed Jesus Tomb cake! Mmmm…SO appetizing. It’s GENIUS hilarious!

  3. About ten years ago, I made a cake for a friend who writes for MAD Magazine. I used those little tubes of colored icing that they have in the baking aisle of the supermarket to decorate it with a picture of Alfred E. Neuman. It was a fine likeness indeed, if I do say so myself! I’ll try to dig out a photo.

  4. In January I made a meatcake for the spouse’s birthday:

    (yes, those are bacon roses)…

    Last weekend I made a set of ‘cheese’ cakes: Spice Cake (chipotle cheese inside) and Italian Cream Cake (sundried tomato and pesto cream cheese layers inside)

    And a ‘rustic apple tart’ concealing a wheel of brie. Lousy pic of it, though:

  5. Oh how fitting! I’m getting ready to start working on a cake for my son’s birthday next month! I’m still in the planning phases now.
