10 Coolest Thanksgiving Turkey Replacements

1Junk Food Turkey

If you just can't get enough junk food, even during Thanksgiving, you can cook up a hot dog-turkey (aka a Hot Durkey). Oscar Meyer created this crazy concoction that will help pack in all those holiday calories in a fraction of the time. Be sure to garnish it well to make the celebration feel complete.

2Raw Turkey Cake

That's no raw turkey - that's dessert! Despite its outwardly grotesque appearance, the innards of this creation aren't full of stuffing, but orange and rum spice cake. In addition, the turkey cake (named "Mr. Mathews") has an outer "skin" made of marzipan and butter cream.

According to its creator, Sarah Hardy (of Sarah Hardy Cakes in London), the incredibly realistic raw turkey cake only took one day to make.

3Inflatable Turkey

This inflatable turkey, complete with an oven-perfect skin, is almost good enough to eat.

The next time you invite people over for Thanksgiving, serve them this turkey first and watch their horrified expressions ... but be sure to have real turkey or they'll probably stuff you with it.

4Turkey Appetizers

5Turkey Shaped Cake

What's for desert? Turkey… cake! The guys at Cake Central share the directions for their awesome 3d roasted turkey.

6Turkey Butter

In the words of food goddess Julia Child, “With enough butter, anything is good.” While I couldn't agree more, I have a strong feeling Julia was talking about stews and steaks — not carving turkeys with it.
