I Call Fowl

Tuesday, September 29, 2009

I dunno, would you say some hen-pecked Wreckerator just winged this one?


I mean, I don't want to ruffle any feathers, but this isn't exactly poultry in motion.

Now this, on the other hand...

Yep, that's a dead ringer.

Hey Dana S. & Elin A., you know the expression "running around like a chicken with its head cut off"? Well, apparently, if they keep their heads, they just lay there niiiice and still-like.

There must be a pretty specific market for a plucked fetal position chicken cake. Maybe a PETA protest party?

WriteCards said...

Oh my word! Is that going to be "birds of a feather flock together?" Oh, wait . . . the second one doesn't have any feathers! (Who would want to eat cake shaped like a plucked, raw chicken? Ewwwwwwww!)

Anonymous said...

Uh, why would anyone even want a cake that looked like a plucked chicken???

Melissa said...

My husband thinks the first one must be an impressionist chicken. You don't know what the wreckerator was feeling when s/he made it - maybe they were just trying to express their inner angst about missing the farm where they grew up.

Right. Anyway, it sure beats the second one.

ros said...

I quite like that first one.

I Love Baby Quilts! said...

I can't explain why, but I really like the first cake. It really does look like poultry in motion, its feathers look like they're moving. I also like the green color. It's a very soothing cake to me. I like it!

Paul said...

Whoever ordered the first one is certainly in for a Pullet Surprise!

HorribleLicensePlates said...

I hope that last cake is pink on the inside. Wouldn't that be great?

Glory von Hathor said...

To me, that first chicken is definitely pointing left and saying
'He went thataway!'

Niecey said...

Ew at the pink on the inside comment. Ew, ew.

Slice of cold, dead bird anyone? With ice cream on top?

I quite like the first one too. It's pretty. Sketchy.

Katie said...

Aw, I actually think the first one is adorable! But the second one is bizarre and mildly terrifying.

Melinda said...

"Poultry in motion"! Jen, you never cease to make me laugh!

Thomas Westgard said...

I'm seeing the cakes here, but not the wrecks. The first one is a nice picture, not photorealistic, but then they weren't trying for that anyway. The second one is hilarious, on purpose! No wrecks.

Katie said...

Yum, salmonella cake.

TornadoBaby said...

There's a bakery that donates cakes and pies to my parents church for the Thanksgiving charity dinners there, and some of the cakes are made to look like the turkey roast ready for the table, with the booties and greenery and everything! They're quite well done (ha!) and the people who come in for food get quite a kick out of them.

msyendor said...

I'd say the first chicken is Cthulhu's 4H chicken

eve+line said...

That 2nd cake looks exactly like pak cham kai (literally means white chopped chicken but is a whole chicken boiled in water, salt, ginger and spring onions). A very popular dish in South East Asia among the Chinese. Serve it with rice cooked in chicken stock and oil and you have Hainanese Chicken Rice!

And yes it's usual to serve the chicken like this. Well actually no, we chop the chicken up into smaller pieces, but at chicken rice stalls, the stallholder does hang up whole chickens to entice the customers!

Terry Lee said...

the first one is strangely interesting.

the second one makes me want to back away and wash my hands. guess i'm just a little chicken when it comes to raw poultry.

bock bock.

Shannon said...

Eww. Just, eww. Never wanting to eat chicken. Ever. Again.

Anonymous said...

Ummm. What's going on in the middle of the second one? Is an alien about to burst out of it?

Also, how come it has no drumsticks?

VeggieT said...

Is it just me or does the first cake actually contain no cake? just a lump of frosting? and the second one can we ever forget.... Cake or Death?! now you can have both!! It's perfect!

W.V dykql... I think the bakers overdosed on dykql. Now they're seeing pretty colors...

Anonymous said...

Oh, wait. Maybe it's not an alien. Maybe that's just its head folded down onto its chest? But if so, it's even MORE wrong that it doesn't have any legs.

Those cakes are FOWL!

john (the hubby of Jen) said...

Veggie T,

I thought the same thing when I proofread the post this morning. I was wondering if anyone else would think that.

justme said...

The first one looks like he could be in the background of a Van Gogh piece, and seriously where are the second chicken's legs??

KrysTros said...

All I can say about the plucked chicken cake is O.M.G.!

denisewalks said...

OMG, the puns! I am sitting here giggling.
I hope that dead chicken is strawberry on the inside to give it that real botulism feel.

Kim said...

I like the first one, It has an childlike art-y quality. The second one...don't be close-minded now. I can think of an time when cake decorated in the form of raw meat might be appropriate. How about a butcher's convention? a meat-packer's conference? In that case, you'd need a beef carcass cake in addition to raw drumstick cupcakes, and, uh, wait. I'm feeling sick right now and won't look at meat or cake again the same way.

BeachGirl said...

Actually, the second one is a dead winger not ringer. You gotta love that the decorater tried to make it the color of chicken skin.

amanda said...

Why does the second chicken still have its neck?

Who would ask for a flabby raw chicken, let alone in CAKE FORM?


wv eutche- I just threw up a little in the back of my mouth. Eutche.

Lauren said...

LOL all that effort and the wings are on backwards.

It's not only creepy, it's a mutant!

Mags said...

LOL@ Paul and "Pullet Surprise"

Melissa (& Billy) said...

0_o

I just want to know...(or maybe I don't...) Who in the heck wants a cake made like a chicken? Especially a RAW chicken?

Maybe someone at a poultry processing plant was having a birthday? That's the only reason I can think of...*scratches head*

Nick said...

Ah, shucks. I was looking forward to seeing some wrecks today. These two are just neat!

Anonymous said...

*raises eyebrow* serious?? whatev. oh i'd never eat a dead chicken cake...

lisadh said...

LOL! Love the posts today. Great puns! And don't forget our favorite chicken:
.!.

Mrs Peel said...

Please tell me that the "niice and stiiiill liiike" is a reference to "The Frighteners". Love that underrated little movie!

Bek said...

Yeah, that first cake definitely looks like it's only a giant blob of frosting on a cake board. No real cake in there, folks...

gategeek said...

I'm also fairly sure that first one has no cake underneath the enourmous pile of icing....grody.

hamburke said...

just curious but does the first cake actually contain any cake or is it just icing on a cardboard tray?

Glindie said...

My husband upon being shown the "plucked poultry cake" said: "That's supposed to be a wreck? That's awesome!"

He is officially *not* allowed to ever buy me a cake.

Shannon said...

That roasted (I hope) chicken cake is fabulous! What would even possess someone to do that? It gives a whole new meaning to "Let them eat cake".

Adnoxious said...

These are super-wrecks if they actually TASTE like chicken.

Susan said...

Did any other RSS readers get this from CakeWrecks through their feed this morning?

"FOX Sports NFL Teams App
by wrecksistant" (all a link that takes you nowhere)

And nothing on the home page here. :-/

Anyway, hilarious stuff today! :D The second one is like a rubber chicken.

arm2008 said...

Oh, this is weird. Yesterday I I thought I was visiting Cake Wrecks, but I was actually at http://pictureisunrelated.com/

The first picture for September 28 was 2 plucked chickens, and I thought "those are strange cakes," then I realized that they weren't cakes. Now the next day I'm actually looking at Cake Wrecks and there is a plucked chicken!!

Tabitha (From Single to Married) said...

ewww - it looks like they took an actual frozen chicken and covered it with icing. So not appetizing!

Matt said...

Before eating, I'd make sure that it was cooked to an internal temperature of 160ºF, or at least make sure the juices run clear. ick.

kadyb said...

Oh, gross.

wv: copla - These are a copla disgusting cakes.

Siouxzr said...

Poor plucked chicken -- his little wings are on backward and someone has stolen his drumsticks

summur braley said...

I would totally bring that to my inlaws for a holiday desert!

krazykris said...

ummmm...I'm having a hard time finding any depth to that first masterpiece. It really strikes me as though they might have milked a few chickens to get that color variation for the frosting. I'm just sayin', ya know?

Between this website and the peopleofwalmart.com today, I haven't been able to have a normal thought. I just wanted you to know I may be mentally scarred for life now, but I will always come back for more!!! Rubberneckers make wrecks rule!!!!

Haiku Joy said...

Missing your drumsticks?
These cakes STILL manage to march
to their own sweet beat.

Haiku Joy's husband on the first cake: "If Predator, Alien, and a chicken had a love child, this would be its birthday cake."

Natalie said...

I'm sure I've written this before, but I'll post it again. As a vegetarian and a cake lover, I am offended.

Not really, but kind of. A little.

Jynxed said...

I actually like that second one. Just don't confuse it with the real Thanksgiving turkey!

Gina said...

I must say I chuckled at "poultry in motion"

- Red Handed Mabel said...

Pullet Surprise? Anyone else get that? Wow.. Maybe it's just me but that's borderline pure genius...

turtlemomma said...

Looks like a stuffed rubber chicken. Maybe the Swedish chef had enough of the Bok Bok Bok's.

WV: redial....awesome I got redial as a word verification.

"poultry in motion" :D
Your eloquence deserves a standing O!
*clapping*

D-D said...

Hey, I'll take a big piece of white meat from that second one!! =D

Lindsay Beyerstein said...

I think the first one's a groom's cake, ordered by the best man. The subtext: You cock-blocked me, man!

Suzanne Dargie said...

That second one is really a cake? That's awesome! It's quite well done....but somehow I'd be afraid to eat it fearing it would TASTE like chicken!

Anonymous said...

They have to lay there "niiice and still-like" when they have no legs!!

With his head cranked around backwards, he's saying "Hey, go find your own sticks to beat the drums!!...Awwcckkk.....AAAWWWCCCKKK.....Aawwcckk!!"

DynamicSheep said...

Did anyone else notice that the first chicken is walking on water?
