Everybody loves a cake. Be it birthday cake, Christmas cake, wedding cake, things made from cheese or carrot cake or any other kind of magically delicious sweetness, you are sure to find something that suits your sugary taste buds. From as far back as can be remembered, that big slab of deliciousness has always been the centerpiece of an exquisite dinner table and the piece de resistance in cooking presentations. Originally consisting of nuts and dry fruit with a dash of honey for that special kick, cakes back then were not so unlike the ones we find today. And who do we have to thank for this wonderfully yummy concoction? Well it is still yet to be decided; however the Egyptians displayed evidence of advanced baking skills worthy of competing on baking reality TV shows of today.
However it was not until the mid-19th century that cakes morphed into the supple decorated mounds that we lap up after a heavy dinner. With white flour, baking powder and icing coming into the mix (see what I did there?), cakes really started to up their game. Of course, that held true especially in the USA, with its love for all things unhealthy with butter cream frosting and modern day pastries.
Coming in all different shapes and sizes, from the fancy French Gateaux to the ever so English Victoria sponge, cakes can be anything you want them to be. Whatever the occasion, cakes are a sure thing to spruce up a rather dull luncheon, becoming the main event that you look forward to. However some cakes aren't always done with the right thought in mind and can truly leave a lasting impression all for the wrong reasons. So to celebrate this most wonderful invention, here are the top ten most inappropriate cakes.
11 The LeAnn Rimes Cake
10 Surgery Cake
9 The "P" Cake
7 Baby Cake
6 9/11 Cake
5 Birthday Cake
4 Cat Poo Cake
3 The Butt Cake
2 Human Centipede Cake
1 Divorce Cake
Revenge is sweet- so much so that divorce cakes are a popular occurrence, rivaling that of their predecessor, the classic wedding cake. With the end of a marriage now becoming a celebration, rather than a depressing state of affairs, divorce cakes have never been so high in demand. With some displaying a more serious side and others portraying a hilarious insight into one's sense of humor, the cakes range from bloody gore fests to gravestones. Well, they do say revenge is a dish best served cold.
