Vasectomy cakes are a thing

Other vasectomy-themed cakes by bakers around the country include a copyright-infringing 3D Mr. Peanut with a bandage on his groin, messages like “Snip Snip Hooray” and “I just retired the swim team” written out in frosting and anatomically correct male genitalia with chocolate sprinkles serving as pubic hair.

The vasectomy cake Lynn Light made was graphic; it had small testicles, made of fondant, with a black bow in the center of a flesh-colored 8-inch chocolate cake.

“I definitely didn’t know what to think at first,” said the owner of Wicked Cakes in New Riegel, Ohio, recalling how she reacted to her customer’s request. “I thought it was a great way to show your appreciation for what a partner is going through.”
