Cake Wrecks the Game Show?

Monday, October 6, 2008

Some cakes are like those ink blot tests you saw in grade school: baffling blobs of color open to interpretation. Well, not exactly; cakes are usually supposed to look like something in particular. Sometimes they taste better, too.

Anyway, since I've gotten a few of these "ink blot" type cakes submitted, I thought it'd be fun to add a little suspense to your daily dose of Wreckage. That's right, boys and girls, now it's time to play...

"Guess That Wreck!"


Everyone ready? Ok, clear your mind of all thoughts. Now, scroll down and tell me what you see:



"What's that? Ah, you see the moon cooking on the grill in a paper bag? [scribbling on notepad] Interesting, veeery interesting... [looking over glasses] And tell me, how IS your relationship with your mother?"

Check back tomorrow for the "answer": I'll post a picture of what the cake was supposed to look like. In the mean time, let's see who can come up with the most outrageous explanation. I may even post the top 3 guesses here, so bring on the funny, folks; fame and fortune await!*



Thanks to Dana W. for inspiring a brand new category! Oh, and Dana? Don't go giving away the answer just yet, k?

*By "fame" I mean a shout-out to your posting name, and "fortune" is used more in the "destiny" sense of the word than the "wealth or riches" sense. So in other words, no, you won't be getting any money*. Unless someone sends it to you, of course. But that someone would not be me. So probably not.

* Or begetting any money, either; 'cuz that'd just be weird. And wrong. But mostly weird.

it look like cockroaches wearing football helmets carrying a ti-dye couch.

Dea said...

It looks like a cookout at the cannibal family gathering! All the tiny heads, that flesh-toned and grill-marked section looks EITHER like the "breast" section, or a rump roast. And the bottom? Well-done tongue...mmm mmm GOOD!

Suzy Q said...

Is it a couch with giant bugs coming out from under it?

Redheaded Mama said...

Having now seen a picture of the Superdome, I have to agree with the majority of the comments. My goodness, what a hideous cake.

Patricia said...

Helmets? I think they look like OLIVES. Just what I want with my cake, OLIVES. Why would you put OLIVES all around a cake?

It's how they crush OLIVES to make OLIVE oil...

Did I mention they look like OLIVES???

Cece said...

My first thought was the back side of Sponge Bob's square pants & that thing in the middle was his crack. But now it looks like a sofa couch being carried away by a million cockroaches.

sues2u2 said...

kinda looks like a little weird crab w/ a fluer de le on it. Guess it could be in reference to the saints since what I took to be legs are in actuality football helmets. I know, a football playing crab?

sunny12 said...

Clearly this is a comment on the current Canadian election. The fleur de lis (also a symbol of Quebec separatism) is being roasted over an open fire, a bit like the bloc quebecois (well they were a few weeks ago). The footballs represent the anglophones (Quebeckers aren't really into football) watching the spectacle.

TheHorseGirl said...

I saw a couch...

orianna2000 said...

Okay, I tried to post this already and it gave me trouble, so I hope I'm not double posting.

A football team somehow traveled back in time, got miniaturized and turned into stone, and then used to build a fireplace at Versailles. Yes?

signedp said...

I see a sofa with an ottoman. Crawling out from underneath this living room furniture, I see numbered beetles. I'm not sure what the fleur-de-lis is doing on the sofa, but perhaps it's actually a sofa and ottoman from Versailles. This is depicting the overthrow of the royal family and the aristocracy during the French Revolution. We must show our new-found patriotism for "Liberty, Fraternity, and Equality" by showing these nasty beetles crawling all over the queen's favorite sofa. (The ottoman's such a horrid color to depict how the people walked all over it to show how these despise Marie Atoinette.)

Clare K. R. Miller said...

It represents the tyrannical Football Fan, who watches football from his giant, fleur-de-lis decorated couch. He is supported on the backs of all the football players, who labor all their lives, doing his bidding and following his every whim.

Stephanie said...

I was going to say steak and lobster, though why there's a fleur de lis on there is anyone's guess!

Hope said...

Uhhh Yeah....
Dante's Inferno: Circles of Hell -football style?!?! (He must have loved football more than his wife)

Liesl Kruger said...

Its a memorial cake - somewhere a bunch of football players were hit by a flying, meteor type breadroll?????

Morgan said...

I'm guessing the Scouts (fleur de lis) Football team (helmets) are having a barbecue (orange things are prawns, brownish thing is... ribs? steak? who knows) at moonrise (white thing on top). Must be a pagan thing.

Lena said...

I'm saying a Scout campfire, made by an obsessive Scout who insists on numbering all his/her branches.

Jesse said...

Um my guess is salmon and a steak?

Kore said...

It looks like a stadium, at a weird angle and very poorly done.

Sarah-Dayton,OH said...

It is a shot of Angelina Jolie, excpet for they ran out of cake and could only make the top of her turtle neck and her lips. The symbol on her lips was put there because the person who ordered the cake mentioned the person liked the Saints. As for the grey blob at the top, well that is, well you know how those cake decorators get lol. "Oh well I guess I just fill the rest in with grey", ROFL......but seriously, it is a stadium for the Saints I think.

Cusegirl1999 said...

It's wherever the New Orleans Saints play football.

Anonymous said...

To me it looked like bugs crawling out of a filthy mattress. Yet the sheets looked inexplicably bright and yellow.

Don't let those huge bedbugs bite!

lifeofleisa said...

I think it's the Superdome. More specifically, I think it's the Superdome after Hurricane Katrina.

Dreams Come True said...

Football stadium, would be my guess... aerial view.

RobynR said...

It's the bed that the NOLA Saints sleep in during the season . . . fosters team closeness don't'cha know.

Michelle said...

In the lesser known cult classic, "Little Shop of Horrors II: The Return of Audrey II, part II," only the lips of the fated fly-trap remain after the deadly showdown at the Superdome. In lasting tribute to a heroic Seymour, the lips (emblazoned with the symbolic fleur-de-lis used to slay the carnivorous plant) are hoisted onto a great BBQ, grilled, and marched through the town by the very same New Orleans Saints Audrey II had been attempting to devour.

Why someone would model a cake after this movie is beyond me. It went straight to video.

jadine said...

I'm guessing a football stadium...with a fleur-de-lis? So, french-ish...so New Orleans Superdome?

Whatever it is, it's awful.

Kelipso said...

I know exactly what that is. Its a swanky hotel bed in NY city... the cockroaches are a dead giveaway!!

:D

Helen + ilana = Hi said...

What I see a fleur de lis in a bed the some beetles so I'm guessing this is a French cake celebrating the at home birth of Egyptian god Ra who is represented here on earth by a scarab (fancy word for dung beetle which is a fair assessment of this cake, non!)

Petrus Faber said...

I think it is a very stale hamburger bun under grilled salmon, moldy cheese, and a steak, all cut in the same dimensions. It is surrounded by huge cockroaches, which have begun with the steak for obvious reasons. The top bun has already been eaten away. The Fleur-de-Lis means this past paragraph should have been in French, so actually it should be:


un pain d'hamburger très éventé sous les saumons grillés, le fromage moisi, et un bifteck, tout coupe dedans les mêmes dimensions. Elle est entourée par les cancrelats énormes, qui ont commencé par le bifteck pour des raisons évidentes. Le pain supérieur déjà a été érodé. Le Fleur-de-Lis signifie que ce paragraphe passé devrait avoir été en français

(I used an online translator, I'm not fluent)

Jacuzzis in Strange Places said...

I'm going with French couch.

Library Supporter said...

That's the Boy Scout fleur-de-lis, right? So that makes this cake a memorial to all the Boy Scouts who have died at tailgate parties.

daundelyon said...

The NOLA Superdome after the Invasion of the Hot Dog People forced a redecoration. The first ever Wiener Bowl is scheduled for next week. Should be a good game; the Johnsonville Brats vs. the Dirty Water Dogs.

Calantha said...

I thought it was a trilobite or some kind of prehistoric arachnid being split open by an invisible cleaver engraved with a fleur-de-lis. It looks like it's getting all carved up like a turkey on Thanksgiving Day.

Amanda said...

A...coffin? Wait, there are football helmets around it. A football player's coffin? Wait, that looks like a Fleur de lis on top of it. A...French football player's coffin?

Roberta said...

I think it looks like someone who is hiding under the covers of their bed, with their bottom sticking out a bit from under the comforter. Why are they hiding under the covers? Cuz there are a bunch of little freaky cockroaches crawling out from under the bed! Right? ;)

Just A Midwife said...

It's kind of like that scene in the Wizard of Oz, but instead of the house falling on the Witch, the Superdome fell on the team! Oh no!

megan m said...

It’s a scene from the French interpretive film based on the Wizard of Oz, and a nice illustration of how some concepts don’t translate well across cultural borders. Given that, allow me to explain… French art film director Pierre Gateaux has reinterpreted the American classic for the French market. In the new version, American football has invaded France as the new sports rage, and is suppressing interest in soccer among French fans. While the French authorities struggle vainly to defeat the invading sports mania, fate offers up a solution.
At the direction of an eccentric French wizard, a freak tornado whisks up a giant version of a Louis XIV divan (you can tell it’s authentic by the stripped fabric and the fleur de lis) and drops it on a visiting American football team, crushing the evil sports invaders into paté. Whereupon the soccer players storm the field, ripping off their shirts and a singing a rousing tune about the irony of bourgeois American fads being defeated by French antique furniture.
This lovely cake was commissioned to celebrate the release of the film.

Renée said...

My honey said it looked like a fireplace but I'm going to guess by the... what are those? Olives? Is it the Superdome?

Kimberly said...

Eesh. I thought it was a casket.

monster said...

Duh, it's the head of a casket for a New Orleans Saints fan!!!

Stephanie L. said...

Miniature football players carrying an oversized grill --- already heated --- to the tailgate party????

Marie said...

Superdome in NOLA with football helmets that look like olives.

diddlesgirl said...

um a "grill the saints party?"

i think it is supposed to be the superdome, but i am not really sure why the grass? is brown and there is all that red and yellow, I am pretty sure that this is the cake of an "anti-saints" fan, hence the blood of the smushed and decapitated players spewing out of the dead grass. oh, the the beautiful grey tombstone!

diddlesgirl said...

my first thought was the monster book from Harry Potter. but I couldnt figure out why there was a fireplace poker in the middle of it.
then I thought maybe a grill? but why should the grill be numbered? are you supposed to place your meat by number? no wonder I never grill well!

nutcase68 said...

This is a health lesson. The bottom brown thing is a lung desimated by years of smoking and has cancer so bad the air sac can hardly inhale/exhale.
The second lung is of someone who has just started smoking, so the lines are yellow. They have not turned that putrid color yet.
The top lung is what a healthy lung looks like. Unfortunately the baker has no clue what direction the brochi in the lung branch out.
As for the symbol, that is the symbol on the cancer clinic that funded the study.
The oval things all around with the stripes look like the pills you will have to take to stave off the nausea from the chemo. The numbers under them are the amount of treatments you will have to have.
I don't know about you, but I don't want any of the cancerous lung cake.

I agree with Tanya, it is soooo Gulliver's sleeping bag!!!!!!

Mark Whybird said...

Mick Jagger after he grew a beard and braided it.

Jaime said...

my first thought was a taco. it was followed immediately by the idea that it was a bed with the top sheet turned down. and some really ugly pillows.

bre vander ark said...

It is clearly a French-bohemian tank. Without any weaponry, of course, just the big tracks and a tie-dyed bow.

or, maybe its a very flamboyant wallpaper scourer. You, know those handheld dome things with pokey little wheels that you roll around to make the wallpaper stripping easier.

diddlesgirl said...

did anyone else notice the large amounts of RED inside of the helmets? I assume the the white with the numbers on it are jerseys, but why oh why use RED icing to attach the helmets? so basically they were all decapitad and the cleanup crew just set the helmets back on their shoulders?

i can't help the horrible visions . . what else can one see in this cake?

Diane said...

A mouth with terrible gingivitis, plaque build up, and something stuck in their teeth. And an interesting lipstick job (which I realized later were football players.... so maybe it's the mouth of a giant?)

D.B. Echo said...

Yeah, I immediately thought Fler-de-Lis, footballs, Saints, New Orleans - Superdome? Maybe a cake for the reunion of all the people who endured days of unspeakable horror there three years ago?

Miss T said...

It's clearly depicting the annual campout of the Jr. Cockroaches football team campout gathered 'round the half-burned log of the campfire and singing Kumbaya while gazing at a semi-popped container of imported "le JiffyPop". Non?

NancyH said...

A contemporary, football memorial to the French Revolution: helmeted heads neatly placed around the base of the city in flames.

Sue from Auckland said...

It's a boy scout bed (see the fleur de lys) with a whole lot of bed bugs crawling out from underneath

Sara said...

Now, if I didn't know that was the Superdome, I wouldn't be much of a NOLA Blogger, would I?

Women on the Verge said...

I believe that this is a cake depicting the surgical repair of a football player's calf muscle. Not many doctors use fleur de lis in surgery, but hey, you never know.

BethE said...

I think it's a campfire with the Boy Scout logo on it.

Anonymous said...

it looks like a broken camp fire

Kristen said...

People...you all are soooo wrong. The cake actually has a message to it. Try and follow me people...this will be very tricky.
So, the grey area is a tank/tube top stetched to its limit. The brown belt is obviously cinched a wee bit too tight. And those lovely colorful flesh toned masses would be sexy rolls of abdominal excess in all its glory (translation...fat rolls, baby)! The artist even took the time to add stretch marks! Why didn't I think of that! Those "helmets" are either a "studded" belt, or someone has a body piercing addiction. The moral of the story...(drum roll please)...ladies, this is why you never get a tatoo on your stomach. Sure it's cute when you're a size 5, but at what point you become a freak show?

JadedAida said...

Does everyone remember the 70's children's show " The Letter People". It looks like Mr. Tall Teeth (the letter T) met his early demise at the hands of a French serial killer who leaves his mark a la "Silence of the Lambs" (the ole' moth in the mouth) on his victims in the form of a Fleur de Lis. Gil Grissom from CSI will be able to estimate the time of death by the tiny football player larvae that have started to grow near the body. :)

andie said...

I'm thinking antique furniture... Looks like a bed to me. And those brown round things are the bedposts... or at least they would be, if there weren't so many of them. What are they, some kind of weird casters or something? Antique beds don't have casters! Must be "antique style" furniture. With a really big Fleur de Lis on it. I guess it's French "antique style" furniture!

Looks like my grandparents gas fire from the 1970's... but why would you make a cake of that??

gatofish said...

Ok, it's a piece of salmon sashimi flanked by a grilled steak and raw brain. The black thing on top is a fly. Yum!

I declare that is the best example of the god Alphonse the blazingly indolent. Shown of course In his classical form, a flaming couch. Riding his glorious chariot; ferried by his mythological team of mighty beetles

Ugh... I know it should look like a stadium... but it looks like yellowtail sushi... grilled tempeh sushi... or the world's ugliest couch/ottoman combo.

Stephanie said...

When the New Orleans Saints go marching in.....to hell fire?

Lancastermom said...

I'm guessing it has something to do with the New Orleans Saint's football team, only bc looking VERY closely at the cake can I tell that those little things around the cake are football helmets, I think...

Mad Izatie said...

I thought it was a BBQ grill. o.o

Kate said...

It must be a McRib Sandwich that someone has photographed for their lawsuit against McDonalds. I'd sue, too, if I got a sandwich with a giant moldy gray pickle and a large iron fleur-de-lis in it!

Sydney said...

While I think it is meant to be the Saint's stadium with a bunch of little football helmets at the bottom, what it actually looks like is a shrimp sushi next to a flank steak sitting on a traditional campfire (the helmets are the ends of the kindling and logs) next to which there is half a marble serving dish. I believe this cake symbolizes the désir de cuisiner à la japonaise, from the first moment mankind realized that soaking a tough piece of meat in delicious maranade and grilling it would yield a tender-seeming delight, to the realization that one didn't have to cook at all to tempt the palate. Indeed, this cake anticipates a future of empty platters, where food itself is not longer necessary to sate one's désir. And from whence will this culinary future spring? The symbols painted on the sushi suggest that it will arise from the fusion of French and Japonese techniques into pure, gastronomic nothingness.

Veggie Gnome said...

You are all soooo wrong!

It's grandma's handbag with her pet tarantula inside!

hollyo said...

I can't breathe. I am sitting here reading the comments and laughing so hard I've used about 10 tissues to wipe my eyes. My son is laughing without even knowing why because of my hysterical, now in tears, I can't catch my breath laughter. The descriptions are wonderful - I really needed to laugh like this tonight.

Lisa said...

This is very clearly the Mothership in Close Encounters of the Third Kind, with the lead Alien beckoning the new travelers on board.

I just can't figure out what the football helmets are for.

Okay- can I vote for the answer I like best? My fav is delilah- "It's a giant piece of French tuna sushi roasting on a tombstone held by the Football team of the Damned..." She gets my vote. Way to go Delilah!

I see a sofa with a fleur de lis and a coffee table surrounded by football helmets? o_O

P.S. This post was the best idea EVER.

Kia said...

I think it looks like the Superdome but that's too obvious. I'm going for family crest of some poor soul who did the order over the phone.

KP said...

It looks like raw salmon fillets sitting on numbered bugs.

Bonnie said...

I think it's a football stadium...the gray brownish stuff leaking out of the bottom of the orange thing is the parking lot. That's my guess.

I hope it tasted good. Heck, if it is a football stadium then I'm guessing it was also served at a football party and maybe people were drunk enough that it passed muster. Maybe the cake decorator themselves was drunk!

It looks kinda like that bowling pin resetter that comes down during a strike, and the Crown lights up if all the pins are down.

i saw a grill w/ a steak, and fish/ chicken. there is no way that has anything to do w/ the Saints

Jubilee said...

I first thought it was some sort of demonic piano until I saw the helmets. Yeah, Superdome.

Robyn :) said...

Um, okay, I think those are little helmets and I think there is a Saints logo on there, but I just can't figure the rest out.

Anonymous said...

Something to do with football, a couch, and maybe some hideous looking meat?

Gyrfalconne said...

Now, the Fleur de Lis is the symbol for the Kappa Kappa Gamma Sorority, so I'm going to assume that they endorsed this.

Nearly as we can tell, aliens tried to kill a football team by dropping a big rock, giant salmon sashimi, and a big steak on them.

I'll bet there are little bloody smears underneath the 'cake' too.

Crazie Weezle said...

I think this is the super dome or a couch that is exploding

jennelizabeth said...

it's am opened chest
from a game i don't recognize

i'd be embarrassed if i had decorated that cake.

Claire said...

It looks like different pieces of nigiri (plain sushi on a tiny bed of rice). The top piece looks like salmon nigiri, and I can't tell what the other two would be...but the bottom one looks spoiled. :)

Meike said...

I figured out what it was, but not before I sat for a full 10 seconds thinking that pink part was a Shrimp's back... on a rock... surrounded by football helmets. Oh yeah, with a Fleur Di Lis stamped on it. That's waaaaaay more tangible than a football stadium.

Kelli Nicole said...

It looks like a giant boulder spewing magma with tiny beheaded football players trapped under a steak. And my relationship with my mother is just fine...just fine...

msfrugal said...

It's a BBQ steak sandwich, but someone dropped it and the steak fell out. The little round things around the sides are cockroaches come to eat the fallen food.

The symbol in the middle is the pointer from the fireplace poker that someone used in an attempt to recover the sandwich.

Kayla W said...

Well, I see the fleur de lis, so I'm going to guess it's a giant french salmon grilling on a huge board of some sort, and there are laser pointers surrounding it. Okay. I don't know.

A ship???

Hanna C. said...

A new legislation went into effect today that made steroid use punishable by death. The convicted athletes, shown above, are neatly arranged under an enormous deformed badger in a hula skirt, which is slowly lowered upon them until the football players are crushed to death. Speaking about his own decorative touch, chief executioner Eric Wassenberger says, "I covered it in wrapping paper so that the last thing these men saw would be something pretty. I thought they deserved that much."
"That," he adds, "and I needed a way to camouflage the blood."

SarahW said...

It's the Superdome from Kansas! Sorry, little munchkin football players. On the bright side, Dorothy now has a closet full of of ruby cleats.

Anonymous said...

It's a salmon on the grill with olives all around, but it comes from a french dynasty of salmon dating back to the salmon of the napoleonic era, that's how it ended up with a fleur de lis?

Pam said...

i know! i look at that view from my office window every day! it's the superdome! woooooo!

It's a fireplace?

JennDNC said...

I thought at first it was a spider on a couch in a psychology office, maybe the spider was dreaming about football helmets.

Husband immediately guessed the Saint's superdome.

stringy-cow said...

It looks like the giant pair of teeth of someone who ate too much red and orange died icing, trying to look mean by baring their FANGS! (Unfortunately their ability to look intimidating is marred by the fact that they have a rather strange gab in their teeth and something severely wrong with their facial care issues.)
Either that or the glasses the guy from star treck used to wear. (He was in reading rainbow too, remember? XD) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:GeordiLaForge.jpg

Looking at pictures, it probably IS the superdome, but it still doesn't look like the superdome...take off the fur-de-lise and you have no clue.

Alexis said...

My god! Someone threw an authentic Louis XIV sofa onto that novelty football-themed grill along with a perfectly seared sirloin!

Right?

kris said...

I wouldn't care to speculate, but those slimy-looking bug things are trying to escape, so that can't be good.

Wait...those are football helmets? Are you kidding me?

Melanie said...

I stared at this for five minutes, and I knew it had something to do with football. My husband came over and said, "Oh! It's the Superdome!" I've even been there, twice. Wow. Just wow.

Crazie Weezle said...

This is the super dome or an exploding couch

Anonymous said...

Well, starting at the -um- top, there is the funny grey-ish hump like thing... THEN the (what.. brown-with-fleur de lis...???)funny symbol in black. And all around the perimeter those funny large cockroach like things (that are probably freaking footballs or some dumbass thing like that). I'm guessing a cup cake thing that is trying to have something or other to do with sports since it has all those numbers around the outer most edge and what the hell ELSE could the brown area with the fleur de lis thing on it symbolize? I just don't buy a cake being carried off by roaches, even roaches that damn big.

Poultrygeist said...

My husband thinks it looks like Iroquois long houses, taken over by the French.

I just can't get over how the bottom part sort of resembles burnt tofu. Not that I've ever personally burnt tofu, mind... *shifty eyes*

A fleur de lis sitting on a neon couch watching football?

Ah, it's the Superdome at night, as seen from the parking lot, which is being carted away by big, numbered, football-helmet wearing, mutant cockroaches.

A centipede with a French beret on.

My first thought was "Fireplace". But ... the football helmets kind of ruin that. XD

BrokeMom said...

I see...footballs! No wait, cockroaches! And stairs! Stairs? Wow, I am at a loss....

Stephanie said...

Looks like a giant bed with an entire football team hiding underneath it.

Marty said...

I actually thought this was a grilled steak with beetles crawling out from under it at first glance, and then I was sad to realize this is supposed to be the Superdome.

Morigale said...

My first thought was 'Two good pieces of sushi, one rotting piece of sushi, and a rock. All surrounded by olives for some reason.' I'm guessing for reals it has something to do with football, because the olives are football helmets.

Erin E said...

For some reason, the first thing to come to mind is Audrey 2 from Little Shop of Horrors.

Headline:
"Giant flesh-eating plant consumes entire football team, adopts French emblem as logo, and vomits helmets after being crushed by half of the moon. Film at eleven."

Sweet Bird said...

Superdome for the Saints...possibly on fire?

At first I thought it was a coffin . . . with flames . . . and, uh, footballs?

It looks like a yule log to me - old French Canadian Christmas tradition...

hmmm...it appears to be a grilled french hot dog bun (with ketchup) that is trapped between a rock and a hard place

Is this supposed to be the superdome DURING Katrina?!

bloglodyte said...

Oh! Oh!

...a poo?

Epiphany said...

I know nothing about football or the Superdome or whatever...my first thought was beetles having a BBQ...ummm...& someone thought a big ol' fleur de lis would be good to throw in there to break up the space on the seared flesh. The numbers keep reminding me of a song..."99 brown beetles, sitting on the wall...."

Liz said...

WOW 500 comments!!!

Stephanie said...

Does anyone else see a tie-dyed coffin sitting on a compost heap? That's exactly what I see when I look at it.

Skiriki said...

A team of footballers are hiding under a dirty carpet by a hideously colored coach; each footballer is humorously unaware of the presence of other footballers as they wait for the mistress to return, and then they all jump out and shout "SURPRISE!" in unison, except it turns out to be her husband instead, who thinks that the football team is a surprise to him from his wife.

Wacky hijinks ensue.

Piano Diva said...

This must be a football team (N.O. Saints?) who placed their helmets around a barbecued steak, which is next to a very poorly cooked piece of salmon that couldn't decide whether it was to be served as a filet, a piece of sushi or a piece of poorly frosted cake. No matter, because the steak-and-salmon wannabes are still attached to the silver tailgate-style alien space ship at the rear of the salmon cake, no doubt waiting to fly this wreck off to the galaxy where cake wrecks eventually die a dismal death. In other words, this is a cake version of a tailgate party gone amok!

debrowns said...

I think its actualy a Football stadium but that's not crazy enough so let's just say the stadium is a giant, flaming, football player eating pet rock come to life.

Amanda M said...

I think it's a Halloween cake, a grave for the New Orleans Saints. The gray part on the top is the tombstone, the part in the middle is the casket, and the brown on the bottom is the dirt.

Procrastinateher said...

Well, judging by the numbers near the stripey bug footballs, and the logo-ish symbol in the middle, it's 'supposed' to be some sort of football stadium. Oh, they're not footballs... they're actually little decapitated helmet people. Huh. Been there, wrecked that.


But it looks like somebody tried to make a typewriter/organ out of some various items they found in the garbage (diseased raw fish/pork, metal garbage can lid in the back, and something that is charred/mouldy/decomposed beyond recognition. Oh, and that crest? It's actually the mummified corpse of a little bird that got flattened). And then when the creator discovered that it didn't work as a typewriter, they walked away and the striped bugs came in looking for a garbage feast. They got stuck round the edges like that because the whole thing was so weird and horrible that they all died after a single nibble.

Sorry that was so long, I'm procrastinating. Yet again. Because I have maybe three hours max to finish this report for uni. Honestly, that's plenty of time :P

Ro said...

something to do with American football ... but I'm not sure about the fleur de lis ....

Cattie said...

Okay, I see tiny football helmets. I'm going with some sort of stadium or football field (?)

But as for what it looks like at first glance, I was going to say some sort of viking helmet. :D

ElsaH said...

First I thought it would try to be a sofa with too many legs, but then I looked a little closer at the "legs", and they appear to be football helmets. Perhaps it is some kind of a stadium? No idea what the fleur de lis is doing on it, though.

OMG!!! The Order of French Knights from Monty Python and the Holy Grail have invaded New Orleans, taken over the Superdome and massacred the entire New Orleans Saints gridiron team by catapulting a giant rotting sirloin steak, a giant putrified salmon steak and a giant over-ripe half-wheel of camembert at them from the roof of the stadium as they tried to escape!!!

They even left their calling card - a giant fleur-de-lys seared into the rotting salmon steak with a giant cattle-branding iron!!!

The last words those poor gridiron players ever got to hear were "So, you think you could out-clever us French folk with your silly knees-bent running-about advancing behavior?! I wave my private parts at your aunties, you cheesy lot of second hand electric donkey-bottom biters!!" in a silly Python-esque French accent.

At first glance, I thought it was a hotdog couch, or furniture made out of a George Foreman grill.

But then I noticed the numbers, and what looks like helmets, so I'm guessing it has something to do with American football, and the Superbowl. It would be better if it was the half time show, and had an iced version of Janet Jackson's nipple.



Chantelle from Aus.

This is easy. The French Canadians, having adopted a half-moon as part of their new logo in a re-vamped campaign for independence, are attempting to display their superiority in the football and steak arenas. The fleur-de-lis (or however you spell it) sits victorious atop an once-prized grill, while a giant piece of steak has squashed a team of once-strong football players. It's a warning to football fans everywhere to stay inside during the rising of a new moon, especially if you live near Canada.

Destiny said...

I think it looks like a foot ball teams logo...not sure which one though :-)

Matilda said...

Easy its a cake for scouts...its a log fire!

sarahcis said...

its little cockroaches carrying a piano with a couch on top .....

Mirj said...

Looks like someone dropped a couch from a great height on to a football huddle.

Wishful thinking?

The Momster said...

I'm going with a grilled white salmon (probably French Canadian), next to a smoked trout, bordered by white truffle-garnished olives. All in all, I'd say, a birthday cake for Jacques Chirac.

nelladarren said...

It's a mouldy hamburger invaded by a lot of cockroaches. That French lily makes it a "Royale with cheese".

Saara said...

Those things surrounding it are football players, with their little numbers and all. I am not familiar with NFL teams, but I guess the colors have some kind of significance, and label these little dudes as players from a specific team.

The monstrosity does look like a football stadium (or rather, looks like it was supposed to look like a stadium...), but that is not the creative input you were looking for.

April said...

Meat on a grill, with the red pieces decorated to show that they are somehow fancy pieces of meat. With footballs around the edges to denote what occasion they are there to celebrate! Right?

Leslie F. Miller said...

It's a sofa with a coffee table in front of it. Duh.

KittyMarie said...

I think I have to go with this cake representing the grave site of decapitated New Orleans Saints football players. That must be it, right? RIGHT?!

harmzie said...

"I got my son's football team to move my art-deco piano, but it crushed them horribly"

Anthony said...

It's obviously the New Orleans Superdome, as you can tell by the stagnant water surrounding it.

Coco the Great said...

I see a a scout symbol, lying on a couch, and the couch has the moon for a back, and all this is being carried by beetles. Thank You.

At this point all I can do is wave, (^), and hope that you can see my comment among all the others.

Clueuin voice sounding faint: It's the New Orleans Saints Football Area.

I'm here!

Have a nice one Jen!

Peace,

Congrats Jen! Let's eat a piece of cake as a toast.

Azreal said...

From back to front:

Cod, freeze-dried salmon, somewhat suspicious trout, and burnt salmon, with a strange, melted plastic garnish served on top of skewers headed by football players, on... A piece of Christmas wrapping?

tl;dr: Surrealist art installation. Or possibly a dish from an expensive French restaurant.

Wow...I'd have assumed it were a mathematician's S'more.

Did we ever get what this was SUPPOSED to be? Or a pic of what it was supposed to look like? lol

Anonymous said...

I know what it is but here is what it looked like.
Some evil-doer has rolled his hapless victim in a huge sack, tied him to the worlds ugliest couch to keep him too stunned at the unmatched hideous clashing colors to struggle, and had his evil little football, playing helpers fly him to the moon!

sarah20xoxo said...

Looks like a hotdog bun and the hotdog fell out of the bun because it was burnt really bad. Then some team of roaches came along to eat it.

i thought it was a multi colored brick wall with creepy little beetles eating at its base.

Here's my theory:
It's the moon! Which fell on a football team (I don't pay attention to sports, so I can't say which one)! And now, people are trying to get rid of it by building an enormous bonfire to burn it away!(That's what the brown stuff is: wood. Apparently, an OCD person arranged the wood [see how straight it is?]) Oh, and that black thingy in the middle? That's a ship that was on the moon and is now being burned black in the fire. But this is just a guess.

Here's my thoery-
It's the moon! Which just fell on a football team! (I don' pay attention to sports, so I can't say which.) And now, to get rid of it, people are trying to burn it! And apparently, the wood was laid out by an OCD person (see how straight and organized it is?)! Oh, and that black thingy in the middle? It's a rocket that was on the moon and is now being burned to a crisp!
But, like I said, this is just a theory.
