Launched on 1 April but apparently not an April Fool’s gag is the strictly for adults only website Rude Cakes. A spin-off from The Cake Store (, Rude Cakes is following the economy’s descent into the gutter by establishing an X-rated emporium.

"Perhaps the recession is responsible for Brits getting saucy and ordering explicit cakes for laughs," explains Tim Slatter, co-director of Rude Cakes with brother Kevin.

Sales of rude cakes have apparently risen by 140% in the last six months. The site features all the cakes that customers have requested so far, as well as a new line of "poor-taste wedding cakes and divorce cakes that’ll really shock". Don’t say we didn’t warn you!
