Vasectomy cake is a cut above other cakes

It seems there really is a cake for every occasion.

Mum of three boys, Amber Cole made a special cake to celebrate her husband's planned vasectomy.

It's not pretty, but it's definitely the thought that counts and in this case the thought's hilarious.

"I'm glad you can't knock me up," she scrawled in blue icing on the cake.

Surrounding the cake were a heap of cup cakes decorated with little black sperm-like squiggles.

She shared the image, along with another of herself and her husband holding the cupcakes, to Facebook.

The accompanying caption read: "Someone's not as excited about his "procedure" tomorrow, as I am! Also it's very hard to write with frosting!! Celebrating with cake! Three boys are our limit! If anyone wanted to have a baby by my husband, speak now or forever hold your peace!"

The post was met with many helpful and hilarious comments.

One man wrote: "It's not the best time with your pants off. But I think it's easier than childbirth."


Another uploaded a GIF of Edward Scissorhands.

Cole even told everyone that she'd purchased some frozen corn, instead of peas as some had suggested, as: "they were 49 cents a bag cheaper".

And the corn came in handy after her husband's procedure.

"Everything went smoothly!" she told Babble.

"The doctor says it was a new world record for her, under 25 minutes! He's been keeping up with his pain meds and switching his bags of frozen corn out on the regular. He said it was much easier than he thought."

Cole said the decision for him to have a vasectomy was an easy one.

"Truly, we are thankful for the three little dudes we have and decided we are done having children," she said.

"I needed a C-section with each baby, so we decided it was my husband's turn to take one for the team."
