Novelty cakes are not a new concept to the world of baby showers. It's easy to go too far with the realism, but if you're committed to it, you might as well go spectacularly too far. That's what one gifted baker, Mataya Conroy, did at a May 29 baby shower for a mom named Johanna.

She made a cake in the shape of a healthy (if surly) baby emerging from a hyper-realistic dilated vagina made of frosting and mashed strawberries. The strawberries were an especially disconcerting touch. Photographer Chuck Johnson snapped a pic of the cake, which quickly went viral on Facebook.
