I wish there were more information about this tasty-looking giant squid cake!
See also: my Flickr set of bizarre cakes.
I think it is not delicious, is it?
how is this giant?
It’s not a giant squid cake; it’s a giant squid cake. The cake looks like an Architeuthis.
Shield your eyes, it’s just cake, I promise, just cake..
Like gingerbread men, and jellybabies.. they don’t mean it, really.
Put those away.. c’mon, please.. petawatt-laser-tentacles aren’t going to solve this.. it’ll just make you feel better for now, but you’ll feel horrid later.. won’t you. Won’t you?
And minT, sorry about the “just cake” line. I know, it’s never “just” cake.
“It’s never “just” cake.”
If only cake had a conscience, or morals.
Well, now I know what to make PZ Myers for his birthday!
Mmm, Architeuthis cake….
is it possible here to make some kind of pun about calamari?
These art cakes can be very handsome, but anyone who has been served a chunk of fondant-enrobed (or marzipan fondant) cake knows it’s about looks, not food quality. The blue base is probably far better.
I think it may be meant to depict a Humboldt Squid
I’m not sure how I feel about all these new playdoh cakes I’m seeing… What happened to frosting, who decided to replace it with playdoh? How dare you make me distrust cake :(
you’ll pay…oh, you’ll pay…
Before we got our dog, folks at our office had this amazing cake made for a “shower”:
and to prove it was edible . . .
yeah, but tak….c’mon,..CAKE, MAN!
That is adorable! Slice me a piece! I’ll take this or the real thing any day.
Cthulhu is going to remember this when He rises…
WoW geek here. Seems like the perfect cake for US-Lightninghoof, where shouting “GIANT SQUIDS!” at someone is a common greeting.
Cool, I know what to eat before I see the upcoming Watchmen movie.
Because, obviously we won’t get any squid from that….
