Do These Taste Chewy to You?

Wednesday, March 25, 2009

I think I've let the Star Wars fervor sparked by the awesomeness that was the Vader Baby Shower cake and Yoda's Stint in Cake Decorating die down long enough. Now it's time to visit the other side of the spectrum, where we will delve into the true mysteries of the galaxy, and ask the one question every brave soul must answer before continuing on his or her quest to become a true Jedi:

"Chewbacca? Is that you?"




Of course this question is often made more difficult by Chewy's striking resemblance to Big Foot:


His mixed lineage of both Ewok and Muppet ancestry:

Dirty Muppets, I might add.

And his constant, never-ending battle with constipation:


"Dude, what did I say about having 12 cheese burritos for dinner? Huh?"


Tanita S., Sarah S., & Kaye B., I know this is old news, but have you seen the Wookiee model nightstand? All the scruffy-looking Nerf herders have them.




UPDATE: You guys continue to amaze me with your awesomeness. Madalina, creator of the Constipated Chewy, wrote in to tell me she's NOT a professional baker - so that's a definite my bad - but that she's fine with it remaining here. "I still get a laugh looking at it," she wrote, "and hope that it makes other people laugh too!" Thanks, Madalina, and may I say it's my hope that someday ALL bakers have your grace and good humor?

And as for the rest of you: Be sure to check out Madalina's blog Duh-Licious and show her some love, k?

The second cake seems to have Chewy in some consternation about his pants riding up in the front. Wait! He's not wearing pants! That's even more disturbing.

jmcleod76 said...

Is Chewy scratching his ass on the second cake? Disturbing ...

Jen said...

My son (age 7) is a Star Wars nut. He went crazy for the Vader shower cake. The last several cakes are pretty wrecky, but I have a feeling he will dig the first cake - this of course coming from a child that thinks haute cuisine is anything from the Star Wars cookbook!

Catharine said...

I know the nightstand isn't a cake, but it is pretty funny!

Stressfactor said...

Ummm.... is it me or in that second picture does it look like a Bigfoot looking back over his shoulder while scratching his behind?

Kameron said...

The Big foot is grabbing his cash and prizes no less! Just what I'd put on a little gril's birthday cake!

deckardcanine said...

That last cake looks like a cross between a Wookiee and a Hutt. I shudder to think.

Anonymous said...

ummmm... is it just me or does Big foot Chewy look like he has a bad case of jock itch? Tonya A.

DangGina said...

Still...laughing...so...HARD...about Dirty Muppet Chewy and Constipated Chewy! Bwa ha ha!

deckardcanine said...

That last cake looks like a Wookiee-Hutt hybrid. I shudder to think.

WVOTD: rumpe -- I laughed mine off.

Julie in Arlington said...

All these Chewies desperately need to go to the hairdresser for some deep conditioning.

Brianna T said...

Overuse and misuse of ellipses on message boards and the like is bad enough, but must we slap them on a cake, too?!

Kriisi said...

The weird stance on Chewbacca number two makes me wonder whether he is scracthing his butt or... you know.

Dorci Harris said...

In the 2nd picture it looks like Chewy's doing his Michael Jackson impersonation.

mK said...

There is something very, very not right about that Bigfoot cake...

Doublebanker said...

What's Chewy's hand doing in the 2nd one? Looks PG-13...

Heather said...

Um, does that person's video need to be 46 seconds long? I kinda got it in the first ten, Thanks.

And is that one Chewy scratching his nuts?

Ace said...

Ew. That dirty muppet one made me sick to my stomach. One of my quirks when something looks like that. Gross.

FreedomFirst said...

The third cake actually looks more like a representation of an owl beanie baby to me.

mare said...

CW3 is particularly disconcerting...might I say it looks like a turd? If someone gave me that for my 40th, I'd seriously have to reconsider the relationship. Wrecktastic indeed!

Amanda B. Young said...

Hahah! The nightstand clip is so good it almost makes you wonder if that's how they came up with the sound effect. Hmmmm...

Trevor said...

It seems that people have beaten me to the punch, but the bigfoot version appears to have Chewbacca, um, err, touching himself (cue the Divynals).

The first one isn't TOO bad, but it plummets from there.

Gilsner said...

I think the *real* question is why the dude in the video has a George Foreman grill in his nightstand?!? Even if he was craving a late night snack, surely he has to get out of bed to get the meat? (insert witty comment about the dude's 'meat')

As for Chewy, let’s be honest… anyone who’s constipated enough to justify that deer-in-the-headlights look could stand a little ‘force’. ha ha!
(I figured the deer reference was poignant, given the post from a couple days ago… again, with the wit! My mom was right… I am funny! And beautiful! And smart…. and...)

Jenn said...

Everytime I see cakes like those, I hear the decorators justifying their awfulness to themselves... "Well, this is how they WANTED it!" Thinking they were actually doing a decent job.

Viewtiful_Justin said...

That constipated Ch'bacca makes me laugh really hard. He kind of looks like he just soiled his bandolier.

Judy said...

The second looked like he was doing an MJ dance or at least scratching himself inappropriately. But the 4th ones eyes made me literally laugh out loud. ROFLOL

Half Assed Kitchen said...

I cackled aloud at that last one. The big eyes. Oh, my sides hurt.

Angie (from over at www.HalfAssedKitchen.com)

Denese said...

I totally agree that the cabinet sounds exactly like Chewy, however I don't know what had me laughing harder - the fact that the owner realized what it sounded like, the fact that he found it amusing enough to record it, or the fact that he spend so much time recording it (open...closed...open...closed). Ha,ha - ten seconds would have been enough. ROFL!

Amy said...

These are too funny for words. And the comments aren't making it any easier to stop laughing.

But that cabinet? That's creepy in a fun way.

~Amy B

Rose and Jill said...

Most definitely not a cake, but I had a good laugh at the nightstand video...Chewy is alive and well!

Anonymous said...

It's not so much the cake that I have a problem with, it's the name "Navin" on the first cake. Did his parents NOT see "The Jerk"? How in the world could you name your child after a complete moron?

Wendy said...

I want to adopt the dirty ewok muppet baby.

April said...

Oh no--decapitated Chewy!! Was that, by any chance, mailed to Brad Pitt in the middle of a field?

kara said...

I like the wookie 'stache on the first one.

Truly Hideous Gifts said...

Some of those are unrecognizable! Wow.

Christy M said...

So I'm not the only one with a dirty mind - my first thought about the 2nd cake was that he was playing some pocket pool (although I guess he isn't wearing pants!)

What is #3? I can't even find words!

Joanne said...

On No! I have to do a Star Wars cake for tomorrow but luckily it's not a "Chewy" cake. I'm doing a "Lego Luke".

Elaine said...

I just want to thank you for this great blog. (I am relatively new to it) The cakes are funny, but it is your great writing that makes them hilarious. Thanks again for all the LOLs I get from Cake Wrecks!

Tarri said...

why is the second one down grabbing its crotch?

My Big Fat Super Super Obese Blog said...

Love the chewy cabinet. I agree, the 2nd cake either has Chewy doing a mean Michael Jackson impression or he has jock itch. I'm hoping for the former.

Kara said...

The third cake is totally the gopher from Caddy Shack!

Ashley said...

Will someone tell Chewy that if he doesn't stop that, he'll go blind?

Hungarican Chick said...

That second guy looks like he's doing the Roseanne/Michael Jackson patented 'crotch grab'.

msyendor said...

OMG ... Cake #4 - It's the Golgothan! Sooooo not what I needed to see this morning!

The Ferber Family said...

dude do you have any idea how much my husband would pay for that damn nightstand?! bet that guy spent all day just sitting there playing with the door. too funny!

Kaitlyn said...

Is it just me, or does the "dirty muppet chewy" look like a creepier version of the gopher from Caddy Shack??

You judge: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=krVXRCcr2M4

Michelle said...

No other pictures of Chewy have better deserved the name that my two year old son has given Chewy. He fondly calls him "Chewy caca" and yes that last one really does look like caca.

~* N *~ said...

I like how the constipated cake says "May the force be with you"... Looks like Chewy will need all the force he can get. :P

sendingtheclowns said...

In the book "Gullible's Travels," there's a chapter in which a person is faking a sound effect using a keyboard/synthesizer thingy. The person tries to make it appear that the sound is coming from a ..a...trap door. Yeah-that's what it was. The sound was synchronized so that when someone opened the trap door, it made a sound like...um...purring. Trouble was, they taped it on a video camera and accidentally got footage of the person in the background who was using the sound machine. People who'd seen the purring trap door wanted their money back. Can you believe it? I mean, how gullible some people are?
>^!!^<

Norma said...

On the second cake, Chewie's hand/paw seems to be drifting perilously close to where I assume his genitalia would be...

The Boob Nazi said...

That cabinet is the funniest thing ever.

sendingtheclowns said...

I don't think I've EVER seen a more dejected, bummed-out, sad, hopeless, or disgruntled look on the face of a cake than what's on that last cake.
What on Earth happened here? It has a trendy little shoulder bag (really hot right now), a lovely green snowflake-embossed foil floor beneath its feet, not to mention a soft cakeish seat to relax on. Why the less-than-thrilled expression? Maybe it doesn't like sitting in mooshy frosting. Maybe it had bigger ambitions in life. Coulda been somebody? Coulda had class? Coulda been a contender? Whatever it is, it's just too sad.
Besides --heck, 40 isn't THAT bad.

Kathryn said...

omg that one about the constipation was sooooo funny. i was literally laughing out loud for about 5 minutes. you crack me up jen.

~Jenn Danza~ said...

Omgosh, is Chewie is scratchin' his balls in the second one? I'll pass on a piece of that cake. Ewwww..

Nancy (nanflan) said...

Is the 3rd one Chewbacca or an owl?

MzHartz said...

I agree that the 3rd one looks like an owl.

The first one reminds me of the dogs from the Coraline movie.

Kayla said...

Wow, if these are Chewbacca cakes, I'd hate to see the Jabba the Hutt cakes!

Nicole said...

The second one definitely looks like Chewy is.. umm.. adjusting.

The constipation one is hilarious! The cake maker had to have done that on purpose... how do you get such a classic face by accident?

Karen said...

I think Chewie is channeling Michael Jackson on that second cake...going for the crotch grab.

Melissa (& Billy) said...

Oh heavens, I laughed so much at the 'constipation' cake that my coworker had to come over and see what I was laughing at. XD

The first cake is a little spooky, but impressive. The next, um, looks like he's got fleas and the decorator captured him at a rather inopportune moment...

The third one...wow. Just...wow. Sometimes there are no words. 0_o

Ashley said: Will someone tell Chewy that if he doesn't stop that, he'll go blind?

Either that or it'll give him hairy palms.... Oh no! We're too late!

denisewalks said...

Ditto to everyone else who thinks that second one looks like Chewie is scratching his ass.

Robyn 'My Middle Name Is Awesome' said...

Harry from 'Harry and the Hendersons' is NOT dead!! He's on cake #2!!

FairyNuff said...

You know that Lionel Richie face of clay in the 'Hello' video? Looks like they covered it in icing for that first one.

Is it me you're looking for?

D.B. Echo said...

I'm thinking Chewbacca has a flea infestation in his groinular area in that second cake!

Erin G said...

Yikes. In most of these cakes he looks like Bigfoot. We have found Bigfoot!

Jamie said...

In the second cake, he's a disco dancer! Exciting!

sugarapplesweet said...

Apparently, as everyone has already mentioned, the second cake has come serious funk with his junk...

And, Jen, I have tears streaming down my face right now from your commentary on the last cake. After the stressful week I've had, I needed this!

~ Peace and Love

Scritzy said...

Hoo-boy. Looks like Bigfoot Chewy took a potty break in the poison ivy. Now where he itches, he scratches.

As for the constipated Chewy — man, I've never once condoned putting Ex-Lax in someone's cake, but this time it looks as if the cake really needs it.

Sarah said...

That second to last cake isn't Chewy - it's Cupcake Dog!

henzy said...

haha..cool cakes.. loved the first Chewy..

Marji said...

That third cake is the stuff of nightmares!

evil cake lady said...

as soon as i scrolled down enough to understand that these wrecks were going to be about chewbacca, i started laughing (nice title!) and haven't really stopped yet!

Katy said...

Eww. That Ewok/Muppet Chewbacca makes me want to hurl.

Becky said...

These make the Clone Wars cake look good.

NYCowgirl said...

The third cake WAS an owl cake...until the baker left it in the backseat of his car on a hot July day. Eww.

Carolyn UK said...

I got your Nerf herders reference, but want to point out to you that in the Buffy credits there appeared, in the first few series, a certain Mr Wanker. To us Brits that is highly amusing and ties in very nicely to the Chewy touching himself...

Look it up if you don't know the word.

Emily said...

Anyone else see a Dalek in the 3rd cake?

EX TER MIN ATE

Margaret in VA said...

we think that the third one should be called "PooBacca"! Nasty looking thing!

Melanie said...

Ok, the video was hilarious. A nightstand that sounds like Chewy! LOL

peewee said...

#2 is TOTALLY grabbing his junk.

whateverfor said...

Oh poor Chewy. What'd he do to deserve having his head served on platter? What'd the poor recipient do to deserve such a distrubing cake?

The bigfoot was great! I think the constipated one looked more like a bear than Chewbacca (sp?)

Nikki via The Scarlett Rose Garden said...

What a hoot!
That second cake looks exactly like Sloth from the book "Sloth's Birthday Party", lol!
http://www.amazon.com/gp/customer-media/product-gallery/0883752115/ref=cm_ciu_pdp_images_1?ie=UTF8&index=1

I was really amused by my cat laying here snoring and sounding just like Chewy as I read this post... but then I clicked on the video and she woke up to the Chewy/cabinet noise, haaa!

Nonoy said...

Whuaaaa..What was Chewy's doing??lol
I'm still laughing till now..;D

Brendan said...

It must be my Catholic upbringing that makes me think "Salome requested the head of Chewbacca the Baptist on a platter" when I see the first one.

Matt said...

The first Chewbacca looks like someone gave him a Dirty Sanchez (do not google that). The second one appears to be scratching his, uh, groin. What the NGGGNNGGNN!

(That was a Chewbacca noise. I know it's hard to tell.)

Jasry said...

OK, I let my 7-yr-old boy (huge StarWars nut) check out these cakes. He would eat the teeth off the first one. For cake #2, he said, "Hey, he's holding onto his who-ha!", #3 was "Ewwww", and #4 looked like a teddy bear.
I had to go to the resident StarWars expert for a comment, didn't I??

Stina said...

The second Chewy looks like he's scratching his junk!

twitchywoman said...

I can't get past that there actually is someone named Navin. "Navin R. Johnson, sounds like a typical bastard." God I love that movie though, my parents showed it to my sister and I when we were 9 and 11 respectively. I questioned their parenting skills after seeing it. ;-)

morethananumber said...

It looks like the Chewy in one of them has a jock itch issue.

Kara said...

So the second cake is my cake. This cake was given to me because of my irrational fear of big foot. We noticed that the big foot was scratching his balls and had to send it to cakewrecks. This and the fact that it's an f-ing big foot cake!

Aja said...

Wow...all of them are hilarious, but at the third one...I lost it. xDDD And the video is EPIC.

lyndsay said...

ahhh i thought it was bigfoot!! it looks like the bigfoot "i not dead" book which is HILARIOUS by the way!! the last chewy looks so, so sad and disturbed...! poor hairy guy!!

lyndsay said...

ooooh jabba the hut cakes..? are there any??? maybe you've posted about it before...

Celesteblue said...

I think the last cake looks *exactly* like the poo monster at the end of "Weird Science". The buggy eyes are what nails it!

Anonymous said...

"Well, I picked up the cake, uh...you did say you wanted a bloated mangy dog cake, right? Though to be honest with you, I don't know what that has to do with The Empire Strikes Back theme you have going on here….."

whizkidforte said...

The last cake should keep the late Tourette's Guy rolling and cussing in his grave (keeping in mind about his remark about how his son's usage of the garbage disposal sounded like)!

Cupcakes Lady said...

Chewbacca on number two... is he scratching his butt or... something else??? lol ;) xx
