Sunday Sweets: Let's Talk Turkey

Sunday, November 23, 2008

Debbie of Debbie Does Cakes was kind enough to share some Turkey love with us today. Check it out:

I love this guy. Not only is he gorgeously made, he's a comic gem. I mean, those bug-eyes are just crying out for a thought bubble, don't you think? So Debbie, for next time, here are some options for ya:

1) "Uh, guys? I was told this was more of a stag party..."
2) "Whoah, let's all just relax now, and how's about you put that knife down, eh?"
3) [on seeing the *other* turkey] "Mom?"

Ok, guys, your thoughts?

Ummmm....sorry.

I just can't get past Morgan Freeman's hands wrapped around his tummy....

How about, "Gobble...gobble...no, wait! Don't gobble! Don't gobble!"

Oh No! Is that Sarah Palin over there? AWWWKKK!!!!

Natalie said...

I think someone just told him what a "baster" is used for.

Paul said...

"They put the stuffing WHERE?!?!"

All Adither said...

This bowtie is chafing my icing.

"When you all invited me to dinner, I had NO idea this is what you meant!"

He is a very cute turkey - almost makes me want to become vegetarian for a day ... almost. Nice job, Debbie!

Hi Kooky said...

I think he just sat on one of those pointy acorns.

TattingChic said...

I think he looks bloated after eating too much pumpkin pie! LOL!

Mari said...

Wow, I can't come up with anything snarky, he's just too cute!

Anonymous said...

I think he's cute - he'd be the only turkey on my table Thursday. :)

Finally, something colored brown that doesn't look like a pile of poo. It's a Christmas miracle!

Chris said...

"Hey, someone fix the table please, I'm going to be sliding off here in a sec..."

Robyn said...

That is amazing. I looked at the rest of the cakes on Flikr and I have never seen anything like them. Excellent work!

The Barnes Crew said...

Much cuter then the others!

"Um guys, I hear there is a made case of bird flu going around...you might not want to eat me!!"

Sheryl said...

I am a HUGE fan of Debbie Does Cakes -- she does amazing work! So glad to see her featured. Sorry I can't offer something more snarky; I think Sunday mornings steal the snark from me. :-)

Angela said...

He is so cute! I like him.

Kenya Starflight said...

Adorable turkey! But if you ask me, he's looking at the previous two days' Wreck turkeys and going "What the crap?" XD

Wanderjenn said...

Stay calm. Cover the tummy. Think thin.

Mia said...

seriously. that is still not appetizing, although the potential thought bubbles are funny.

Meghan said...

Wait...are those feathers made of FONDANT?! That's incredible (if true!)

Jessica said...

"How 'bout I take you all to a nice fish place. My treat. Red Lobster, anyone?"

Kit said...

"Whoa, I couldn't eat another thing, I am *STUFFED*!"

*awaits raucous laughter*

Anonymous said...

What do you MEAN that the book titled "Serving Turkeys" is a COOKBOOK???

Alix said...

Honestly? he looks a little Play-Doh-y to me. Adorable just the same.

And I know nobody's going to beleive me, but my word verification is "pluct."

"I couldn't possibly eat another bite. I'm stuffed!"

Gorgeous turkey.

mom2anr said...

"For the love of heaven, NOT THE CANDY CORN!!!"

Tammie said...

"Does that bowling pin that I swallowed make me look fat?"

LOL

Great cake!

Anonymous said...

I appreciate the artistry of it but it is not appetizing - only because it looks like it is made of a combination of tinted ceramics and rubber.

Corey Wilde said...

Hide the knives!!!

Kamity said...

"Um, this doesn't look like the petting zoo ..."

Tiff said...

Eat Chicken! I wonder how much icing or fondant that took.

Jacque Benson said...

Debbie is an amazing artist!
This little guy is just too cute to cut!

Kristen said...

I have a "giblet bag" where?!?

royalbuff said...

OMG...hope I will have the skills to be able to make a cake like this one day! :) At the moment, all I can aspire to are cakewrecks with my Noob decorating skills *LOL*

Julie said...

"What exactly is a "Tur-duck-in"? Ack!"

Jessica said...

*says man from street*
"Wow! A turkey balloon at a Macy's parade."

Anonymous said...

BIll

Ellen said...

"Wattle I do now!??"

P. H. Foster said...

They're going to put a *duck* AND a *chicken* WHERE?

Abuela said...

For the cheese factor:

"I'm stuffed!"

usda said...

(Jedi mind trick) I am not the turkey you are looking for...

Havocec said...

Cute Homer Simpson turkey cake. Giblet bag? Doh!

wvotd..tumplet: the drumming noise one makes on an overly full belly..."His wing tips drummed his stuffed belly making a rapid series of tumplets"

Calantha said...

"Anything but the meat thermometer!"

"*Gurgle* Anyone have Ex-Lax?"

*stares at ax-wielding human* "Mommy..."

Tara said...

Debbie is AMAZING! i love her work. i hope she gets on food network challenge again...

Samantha said...

"Man, I'm stuffed..."

Liz said...

This is so cool!! I love it!!

Anonymous said...

Personally I thought it looked a little wreck-y, but I think that's more the fault of turkeys themselves looking weird :P

Anonymous said...

Oh thank god a normal turkey! I thought I was going to be vegetarian this Thanksgiving. lol

Rana said...

"Oh my goodness! I'm on Cake Wrecks!"

nice blog

Feisty Irish Wench said...

Is this my new "forever home"?

word verf: indera - dats my new turkey indera on da table

Anonymous said...

He looks scorched to me. I'd like him better if the airbrushing didn't look overdone.
Maybe he came out of the oven thinking, "I need some Visine!"

Eric said...

"You told me that was a sauna!"

When I said I liked stuffing, I meant to eat!"

Sandi said...

Cute, but he still looks like a bloated deer tick!

kyooty said...

The Sky is falling!!! (those eyes are seeing the sky coming at him fast!)

Chris said...

"An orange girly bow-tie?? I told you I wanted a windsor knot!"

Tammy Jo said...

No YOU bend over and I'll tell you where to put that stuffing....

phillygirl64 said...

actually, the other bird is probably Dad...

Francois Tremblay said...

This belongs on Suicide Food more than on Cake Wrecks...

Anonymous said...

This one is borderline wrecky to me. The general black-and-brown bloatedness of it all is REALLY unappetizing. :/

Missy said...

I totally mis-read that very first comment the first time. Let's just say, when I read it, "sitting" had an extra letter in it. I was like "of course it looks like he's 'sitting' - he's got poo underneath him!"

Then I re-read the comment. Oh, SITTING... lol

Corey said...

He looks burnt! Cute, but cooked. The airbrushing is a bit dark, otherwise, it is amazing.

Becci said...

I'm sorry--I LOVE LOVE LOVE this blog, but those jokes really aren't very funny.

Turkeys are some of the sweetest animals I've ever met. They sit on your lap and they love to chirp and be pet under their wings. They follow you around like dogs and respond to their names.

Frankly, I wouldn't wish the abuse they receive in farms on anybody.

Nice! I love how cartoony it is!
...Can't think of any lines for him that aren't completely lame though!

Step away from the gravy and nobody gets hurt, I may look puny but I'll fight!
