Well, I’ve done ugliest wedding cakes, worst wedding photos, sluttiest wedding dresses and many more that everyone loves. But I totally missed the boat until the wonderful ladies at Weddings Are a Girl’s Best Friend showed a couple examples of Divorce Cakes. I didn’t even know these existed and yet here they are in all of their hilarity. So I went online and found my 20 favorites and here they are..
The Top 20 Divorce Cakes
#20 – Free At Last
Nothing crazy unusual like the other cakes on this list but considering what must have gone into the ball and chain here, I’d be interested in knowing whether that’s a big hunk of frosting or if it’s cake. And if it’s cake, how did they get it round like that? Or is something more sinister…
#19 – Dumbass.
This one makes me giggle. I can totally see this woman in the process of making this cake. “FLOUR! SUGAR! EGG! BLOOD!”
#18 – Work For Food
I’m sure we’ll see more of these in the list, but the “She’s taking half of everything I own” theme is definitely going to crop up here and there.
#17 – Have a Beer
This one wasn’t as inventive as the others, but it’s the best you can expect a guy to do with that photo rice paper and it’s chuckle worthy.
#16 – The Split
This was kind of strange to see that someone went to the trouble to create a nice looking wedding cake and then split it. It makes it one of the more depressing cakes on the list. It almost looks like the wedding was called off and the cake was altered this way which adds some ominous factor to it.
#15 – Headless Groom
This was a different spin that shows the bride’s true feelings, but still remaining calm in its adversity. I, the, he, and then. Ok. I give up. Morbid.
14 – Just Plain Murder
Ok, so one theme you will see with these cakes is women causing harm to men and not the other way around. Keeps the theme strongly and smartly and viciously and gruesomely and funnily-ier.
#13 – Showdown
This photo has been seen everywhere on the web and is very popular. I like the concept and that no one is the winner here. Yet. But the shotgun definitely has more radial damage, so he’s got the advantage here of walking away unless she’s a really good shot. She’ll be in many pieces when all is said and done unless she gets her shot off first. hmm. too much thinking…
#12 – Bride From hell
This could actually be a wedding cake, but the story behind it supposedly is that she’s the bride from hell and this cake shows off her various level of flaming evil. It’s pretty funny as the groom looks like he’s sinking into tar or lava. I like it because it’s chocolate. mmmm,
#11 – Sucker
Another head scratcher. “So long sucker” could mean a lot of things. Sucker means that the other person was tricked by something, so this cake almost gives it that raw, ‘This whole thing was planned and I don’t have to work anymore because of your stupidity” spin that just leaves me reeling. And since divorce is all about cold and heartless vengeance, then rock on! It’s not here because of inventiveness but because of the sheer cold draft it creates.
Yes folks, it’s the top 10 funniest divorce cakes. Proceed.
#10 – Queen of the Hill
I’m seeing a lot of cakes with this Queen of the Hill theme. I like this one’s added touch of his possessions along the side of the cake.
# 9 – Kicked to the Curb
This is one of the few that shows the groom kicking the bride to the curb. I like that they applied the kicking to an entire cake layer.
#8 – I Get Half
This one takes the “she gets half of everything” to the next level showing the true end result of most divorces.
#7 – Take Out the Garbage
I love the effect of the sheet pulled up on the side. But the detail that went into the garbage is pretty funny. Especially the rat.
#6 – Broken Heart
This one had me scratching my head also. It almost looks like a glacier that’s breaking off in pieces, but the head scratching part is that both of them are talking on their cell phones. Are they breaking up via phone or have they divorced and are now calling someone else? Hmmm. The curious nature is what got it to this list.
#5 – Another Level
This one took the whole bride and bloody groom thing to an entire new level. Complete with multiple broken hearts.
#4 – Fertilizer
This bride not only kills the groom but also buries him in fertilizer. Or that’s probably showing that he now IS the fertilizer.
#3 – Hot tub and happy
That’s right. Forget about the bad parts of a divorce. Think about the impending benefits of being single. But it’s funny that you actually think you’re going to keep the hot tub in the settlement. Still funny. Enjoy the cake. Oh. And is that carpet on the cake?
#2 – The Ring Casket
Let me just go on record to say that this was the stiffest competition for the #1 slot ever because between this cake and the number one cake below, it’s both inventive and funny and it strays away from the typical, “I hate you and wish to disembowel you on a cake” approach. Just know that both this cake and the one below are #1 in my book. Love them both. The use of the ring box as part of a casket is ingenious.
And here we are folks!
The winner of the best divorce cake award.
#1 – Marriage License
This cake was made by CakeLady2007 (according to the URL) and the amount of work that went into writing all of this out puts it up there on the list. Even trying to envision this before making it must have been a bear. It’s so well done that it almost doesn’t even look like a cake. Congrats. You nailed it.
And there you have it. The top 20 funniest divorce cakes that I could find. All photos were obtained from Google Images and a lot of digging. You can see the URL’s I got them from in the ALT tags of each photo. Do you have ones to share that I didn’t post here? Post them!
