Eddie Murphy Accidentally Dropped a Swear During This Insane ‘SNL’ Cake Sketch

The final Saturday Night Live episode of 2019 could have been an interesting one. For as awesome as guest host Eddie Murphy is, the SNL alum and the show’s writers have every opportunity to “phone it in” with successive revivals of the comedian’s best-known characters and left it at that. Thankfully, that’s not what happened. On the contrary, this weekend’s SNL was one of the best of the season, and one of its crowning achievements was actually a wholly original sketch in which a baking contest entry turned out to be a portal to hell.

The sketch in question, “Holiday Baking Championship,” saw Murphy playing a contestant in a Food Network type reality competition series alongside Cecily Strong, Heidi Gardner, and Kyle Mooney. Only Gardner’s cake was actually great. The rest were terrible for a variety of different reasons — like the fact that Mooney’s was basically a castle made with dildos — but Murphy’s was the ultimate achievement. It was supposed to look like Sonic the Hedgehog. Instead, it was literally a crazed beast with human teeth that was, as Murphy put it, “real bad.”

It also made the SNL veteran let slip a “sh*t” that, as the video above indicates, was bleeped out by the censors. When the sketch was airing live they didn’t catch it in time.
