World's Worst Pictionary Players

Thursday, February 25, 2010

Seriously - don't let any of these Wreckerators on your team.

On the one hand, I know this is probably supposed to be a car.

On the other hand... are you frickin' kidding me?


You know that control panel on Darth Vader's chest plate - the thing with all the boxes and lights? Yeah, that. Well, imagine that mashed up with a guitar, only they're both made out of balloons. Or maybe jelly beans. Got it? Can you see it? Good.

Now, tell me...does the thing you're imagining...look something like this?

Yes? No?
A-hah! Dang, I'm good.


Ok, here's where things get interesting: Go grab your friends/co-workers/family members, and see who can correctly identify these objects the fastest (if at all). Answers are at the bottom.

Ready?

And...

Go!





Time's up!



How'd you do? Here are your answers:

1) A hand mixer. Or possibly a hair dryer. But probably a hand mixer.

2) Ballet slippers

3) A helicopter

4) I have no idea. Really. Your guess is as good as mine. (Ugly little bugger, though, isn't it?)



Heather E., Anne D., Lisa O., Leah C., Tessa, & Jenny, if you're lucky enough to live near Austin, Texas, you simply MUST go to the That Takes The Cake show this weekend. Their theme this year is Science Fiction & Fantasy, people. I hear someone is making a gumpaste Zaphod Beeblebrox. I mean, come ON. Could that BE any cooler?

Caitlin said...

My guesses were 1) hand mixer, 2) a vagina, 3) a plastic shovel on some white dog poop, and 4) ???.

Michelle P said...

I'm likely not the first to comment, but that last one is likely meant to be a car. A beat-nik peaceloving Bug. Thus your comment is quite fitting.
Seriously though: ballet slippers?? Helicopter?? not seeing either.

Ryan, Corrie, Max, and Jack said...

I got the first one right!! I think maybe I'll make that last onr my birthday next month and see how many people ask what it is and how many just give empty compliments... hee hee

Jill said...

The "guitar" also looks suspiciously chicken leggish. If the chicken had rickets, that is.

mike said...

My answers:
1) A hand mixer (DING DING DING!!!)
2) A deep-sea or tropical fish (Booo!)
3) A spatula on a grill plate....in the ocean
4) Something from Monsters vs Aliens (and I don't know which side it's on, either!)

The Boob Nazi said...

The first one could be a tiger hat with eyes.... But maybe that's just how I saw it.

Carol said...

I think no. 4 is a toy van. It actually looks like the front of one my nieces have if you can stretch your imagination that far. Too bad they didn't add the button that
makes it play music and car noises. CCM

Stephanie said...

For the last one I'm going to guess Mystery Machine...except maybe the baker has never seen Scooby Doo

sasharenee said...

I had hand mixer, sneakers, spoon in a bowl, and VW bus (mystery machine?)

Elizabeth said...

At least I could tell that was a mixer, however the decorator was definitely not looking at one for inspiration and trying to pipe by memory. Bad idea. And the helicopter, it looks more a weird raft and oar commbo. I would never have guessed ballet slippers but for the great hint, "Dance". Thanks wrekerator for helping out!

agirlinherkitchen.blogspot.com

RFS4 said...

I thought the second one was lips with a major problem, & the third looked like a spatula on the stove. ?? I think that last one is supposed to be the Scooby Doo Mystery Machine van.

Jenna said...

I could have sworn that helicopter was a record player.

Ruth said...

1) Hand mixer.
2) Pink football?
3) GRAY ICING?! Dead fire-breathing snake? Totally unappetizing.
3)Re: "car" - Herbie the Lovebug on an acid trip?

Kevin R said...

Hand mixer was obvious, if terribly done (like the car). I guessed "fish" for the second one too, and had no idea for 3 and 4. :)

kristina said...

I agree with Jill, when i looked at the "guitar" cake, I was thinking chicken leg...

wv: fowle..the guitar cake was very fowle!

And I soo wish I lived in Texas, I would love to see the Zaphod Beeblebrox cake! Just watched that movie last night! (again!) Maybe a field trip is in order...;)

Scott W. said...

The top one has to be a pop-up camper that you would pull behind a car or truck.

As for #3 I say it is a raft on the ocean.

Anonymous said...

I guessed the helicopter --- that I guessed it makes me a little bit afraid for my mental status. I thought the ballet slippers were either a bustier or a fish with no tail. The mixer ---- looked more like an Escher drawing with antenna (the beaters). (I've never seen a polka dot mixer.) The last one I think is what happens when your airbrush burps on a cake, so you let it burp more colors onto it so that it looks like "something." Maybe sort of tie dye???

AppleC said...

Maybe they tasted good?

Bakingdom said...

I couldn't figure any of those out...I thought #3 was an inflatable life raft and oar in the water...I never would have thought of a helicopter.

As simply as most of them are drawn, you would think they could have gotten the point across a little clearer. Just goes to show that you don't need to add a whole lot of crap to confuse people!!

Sharon said...

A helicopter? If you say so. o.O My guess was a electric burner with a wooden spoon on fire on top of it. And Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeew!!!


I know what four is. It's suppose to be a flowered sixties hippy Chevy love van as seen headon. It's got a silhouette behind the imaginary steering wheel and big side mirror.

Abby Normal said...

Here were my guesses:

1) Sewing Machine

2) Bustier

3) Lifeboat and paddle on choppy water

4) Epcot

Moosie McGra said...

I think the helicopter is a paddle in a doody-dingy life raft on a stormy ocean.

Auntie Meme said...

1. got it, but stymied by the spots
2. bug/fish?
3. innertube and paddle?
4. taxi with exhaust pipe? we-come-in-peace spacecraft?

Shi said...

Huh, I thought that the helicopter was an inner tube or raft floating on water with an oar.

Martin said...

1) Hand mixer (got it in 1!)
2) Pac-man in drag
3) Giant inner tube and paddle for tube-ing on the water
4) Drug-induced hallucination

sadi said...

#1 & #4 I could not figure out.

#2 - I thought was a pink football

#3 - I thought was a champagne flute on silver poo (not sure why you would serve it on poo though)

Love this blog!

T.A.Y.L.O.R. said...

The first one is a Nemo Clown(fish) car!

Latter-Day Flapper said...

Yeah, I think the last one is a hippie bus. It has the suggestion of wheels, and acid-green flowers are sort of code for, "I am a hippie bus!" even if the rest of the object is unintelligible.

Anonymous said...

Ballet slippers?? All I saw was a fish ^__^

wv:uvidi - Uvidi to be horribly confused by some baked goods?

sadi said...

I just realized, these could be Cake Wrecks rorschach tests!

What do you see and why? Hmm, champagne flute on poo, what does that say about me? :-)

Anonymous said...

Here were my guesses:

1 - hand mixer
2 - some kind of Fish (maybe on acid?)
3 - A raft on a river with a paddle
4 - WTF??? no clue

Nichole said...

I had:
1. Hand mixer
2. lips
3. Inflatable raft and paddle (I was actually pretty sure about that.)
4. VW bus

Jessica said...

Why does the erm... mixer(?) have chicken pox?

Really WHY??

Anonymous said...

I thought the ballet slippers were lungs.
Really, the hand mixer was the only one I got right. :)

Abby said...

I had 1) hand mixer (yay for me!) 2) lips or a fish 3) a unicycle (you canNOT convince me that's a helicopter) 4) a rotten Valentine's Day cake.

half_double said...

Darn it! I got the hand mixer so fast, I was sure I was on the fast track to 100%. But I guessed the ballet slippers cake (really?) was a fish, and the helicopter (*REALLY*?!?) was a plastic shovel in a sandbox.

I was completely clueless on (4) but terrified it would turn out to be a thong on an anatomically impossible woman.

Whirlwind said...

I'm thinking number 4 is a head on shot of a school bus? See what could be a square windshield, two wheels and a stop sign on the right side?

Maybe? possibly?

Emily said...

Ahh this made me Lol. Even though I couldnt tell what three of them are. I think the last ones a car though. Still its a pathetic cake.

Liz said...

I'm pretty sure #4 is a turtle. An ugly turtle.

Sarah said...

Am I the only one who finds that much grey icing vomit-inducing??

Whirlwind said...

Looking at number 4 again - maybe a firetruck? it is red - lights on top?

harmonyfb said...

My guesses were:

1. Hand mixer
2. Pink Trilobite
3. Curling Stone
4. Some sort of vehicle?

Half Assed Kitchen said...

I think that last one is the Scooby mobile. Or something...

Anonymous said...

I believe the very first post is a school bus. It's plain as day. :rolling eyes:

I think the helicopter is actually a chicken leg on a dinner plate - hence the name "picnic cake" on the cake box sticker.

I got the hand mixer, guessed "fish" for #2 (how could I have missed the word "dance"?), chicken leg/plate for #3 and Partridge Family van for #4 (although I concede that I am probably one of the few people who remember that show and agree it is more likely Scooby's Mystery Van).

Anonymous said...

How did they get a helicopter out of that?

My guesses:
1) hand mixer
2) bustier
3) baseball and bat
4) VW van

Elisabeth said...

I actually think the handmixer cake is absolutely adorable :D

Tainda said...

Wow, I got the mixer right but after that I guessed: a fish, an innertube with an oar and I had no idea what the last thing was lol

greeblygreebly said...

My guesses were- hand mixer, fish, record player and..VW van? From the front view?

Maria said...

I thought #3 had something to do with curling, a Winter Olympic sport as mysterious as that cake!

Anonymous said...

I thought the first one was a cannon (I've just recently watched Muppets From Space). 2nd lips or a fish. 3rd a curling stone. And that 4th one is just a hot mess.
Ann

thesacredandtheprofane said...

My guesses:
1) Cannon firing really weird ammo
2) Gaudy hot pink pisces fish
3) Canoe paddle sinking into a grey poo whirlpool
4) Realy ugly VW Beetle

Guess I get an F. Or they do.

Katherine @ Grass Stains said...

I was wrong on all four! Hilarious.

The Shitty Astrologer said...

That's a helicopter that's flying into the grey poop portal cake?

Karla said...

I thought #1 was a salad shooter! Didn't have a clue on the rest.

Jasry said...

My guesses:
A leaky bouncy house
A strangly-dressed Ms. Pacman
A record player
the Mystery Machine (it's vaguely van-shaped, and the flowers sorta match....)
*shakes head* So, so sad....

-- Pam said...

MUST have photos of gumpaste Zaphod!!! Not that the narcissitic fluffball is my hero or anything . . .

Jimh. said...

No, it could not be any cooler! How many cakes made to represent the two headed president of the universe could there be??

Tam said...

1) Hand mixer (yay me)
2) fish
3) Helicopter (holy shit - yay me)
4) a turtle with a blue police light on it's back.

Jen said...

1. Hand mixer
2. Pink Owl
3. something from Harry Potter
4. a 4/20 preview cake...

Yeah I'd lose that game of Caketionary.

Karma Darling said...

BALLET SLIPPERS?!? I thought maybe fish or owl... I did get hand mixer, though.

sunioc said...

I got the hand mixer. After that, I guessed some sort of fish, a shovel of some sort, and the last one... maybe a copy of a van gogh painting, created by someone who took some lsd to help with their concussion?

Anonymous said...

Well, I identified the handmixer (with liver spots) and the ballet slippers, but I thought sure the third one was a curling stone (poorly done, of course).

The 4th one looked like a girly Space Invader to me.

Jessica said...

1 - Hand mixer - yay for me, but why does a hand mixer have chickenpox?
2 - pink bustier, for an alien.
3 - a paddle and inner tube for tubing down a choppy river.
4 - the front of a psychedelic bus, if I'm the one taking the LSD.

wv futdis: Why should I futdis bill for this ugly cake?

(This is the first wv I've ever been able to use in a sentence!)

Anonymous said...

Ok,
I got electic mixer (and who doesn't have a polka-dotted mixer!) Fish and manhole cover with bloody oar on it. Last one, is some kind of abstract expressionist rendered in icing. However, I'm not very good at these things, no one ever wants me on their team. For example - I had no idea that the second one was a guitar. I guess I should have known because of the musical notes.

HeidiKaye said...

I'm with Bakingdom -- I thought the helicopter was a raft with an oar on it -- but I totally got the first two. Yay, me!
My guess for the last was a turtle -- one nobby black thing on the right (but none corresponding on left) I took to be a head.

Wendy said...

You have to love the description on #3 "Classic White Picnic Cake" I dont' know about you but i've NEVER had a picnic cake that looked like that!

peewee said...

you guys! That last one is the MOST obvious! It's a pink poodle face with yellow tape across its eyes and a few big black fleas! I mean, i don't know how you didn't GET that. Maybe you just gotta be a dog person, ya know?

WriteCards said...

1) a fallen lamp
2) a dead fish
3) a used condom
4) huh? belongs with the leafy car up top!

Been gone . . . it's good to be back!

douberlyfamily said...

I'm with Liz..I thought the last one was a turtle.
wv: chothy
People should be more chothy when selecting a bakery. (Sorry, I just lost my two front teeth.)

. said...

wow. i would have lost pictionary fo sho.
1. a hair dryer
2. a lingerie-wearing clam
3. a record player
4. the mystery machine

Andrea said...

I really hope we get to see some pics of that gumpaste Zaphoid after the show!

I guessed two out of four... if the last one even counts!

a.m.f. said...

Clearly, everyone is better at the game than I am.
I though #1 was an iron lung. :-/

Kamity said...

That fourth one is totally a hippy VW bug. Can't you see it?!?!

Anonymous said...

I thought:
1. Hand mixer
2. Fish
3. I was leaning towards oar and raft in the ocean, but I kept wondering why the water was so gray
4. Freakish turtle

Cake should seriously not be so confusing or so ugly. I'd only venture to eat the hand mixer cake because at least it looks like cake!

wv: Wamackee. These cakes sure are wamackee!

Delilah said...

Come on people! #4 was easy! I didn't even have to think about it. A sheep.

knine22 said...

i thought #3 was an inflatable life raft and oar in choppy water... too. i can't form a helicopter.
*tilting head right*
*squinting*
*tilting head left*
eh. no. not getting helicopter.

that's some seriously thick icing going on there!

Lauren H said...

I got #1, wasn't sure on two.. thought maybe some type of fish, #3 left me clueless but for #4 I saw a wagon full of flowers...

Margaret said...

1. hand mixer
2. corset
3. record player
4. van from Scooby Doo

shmoni said...

I refuse to let the world believe that is a pair of ballet slippers when it is (i)clearly(/i) a headless ladybug. That is the name of a very popular dance in the Southeast region of Northern Fra..Spain. The Headless Ladybug Jig. Clearly.

Why is the helicopter so shiny??

Brad said...

I saw a cup of hot cocoa, a pinkish fish, an inflatable raft, and a bad acid flashback.

Anonymous said...

That one that was supposed to be the helicopter (really?)...I actually saw the triangle-headed alien at the opening of the cantina sequence in Star Wars (Episode IV: A New Revision).

Kirsten said...

#3 is definitely a curling stone... I must have Olympics overload

Anonymous said...

People, people. The spots on the mixer are from the batter flying around due to having the speed set too high. Who among us has not done that?

Gray poo, though? and some kind of spoon for stirring it. I'm really not seeing the helicopter.

Robyn said...

No, see that second cake is actually a top view of an orange frog, zapping a fly with its tongue. The frog of course is infected w/ some sort of tongue fungus, or maybe those are gnats on the tongue, and also on the fly.

But definitely not a guitar, no way. 9_9

Julia Spencer said...

My guesses were 1) hand mixer 2) a Corset 3) I had no freakin idea 4) a VW van???

And the guitar looked like a Mikey Mouse Head with a stick coming out of it's head. I'm not sure where you get Darth vader... Jelly beans yes... But Darth? no. Mickey Mouse Head? yes... Guitar? No.

Anonymous said...

1. I thought Blowdryer
2. I was thinking pink pacman
3. Metal Detector. That was actually pretty obvious. The background is meant to be sand.
4. Bouquet of flowers

Mari said...

The guitar bridge looks like a penis. Going into a...I don't know. I got the hand mixer, but I thought #2 was a neglige. I really hope that cake wasn't for a little kid's birthday party. It probably was, though.

Nala said...

I totally thought the ballet slippers were the hat the pope wears.... couldn't figure out the last two. ROFL.

Ann said...

1. Hand mixer covered in poop
2. Vagina
3. Curling stone (I maintain this is correct!)
4. Gangrenous turtle

Becky said...

My guesses were:
1. A weird looking hair dryer
2. A headless ladybug
3. A lollipop made out of cement
4. A Lovebug

p.s. the captcha I have to type in is "poomit" :)

Kimberly said...

Oh noes, the helicopter has crashed upside down! Aieee!

And yes, there will be a Zaphod made out of gumpaste at the Austin cake show. He's sitting behind ET, which is a good thing because with two heads, he can see around ET's up-stretched head. And behind that, Londo is being unfair to G'Kar *again*. Tsk.

Thanks for the shout out...we'll get you lots of piccies next week!

Cathie said...

I saw 1) a cannon, 2) lips, 3) a raft with oar, or maybe arrow and target 4) the Mystery Machine. Definitely the Mystery Machine. You can just see the drugs.

craftyashley said...

I think #4 is the Partridge Family Van!

LeftWingLock said...

1 = one of those big tank reservoirs that sprung a leak and has some type of liquid spurting out of it

2 = a pink football with some Roman numerals to celebrate a certain game; I saw there was a word on the board but was too afraid to enlarge the picture so I could read it (past experience has taught me this!)

3 = a grey hamburger covered by a red spatula with a yellow worm on it (how am I doing so far??)

4 = the Official Wreckerator Getaway Vehicle, perfect for leaving the scene of their crimes against cake without attracting any attention whatsoever

Tiffany said...

A Helicopter???? REALLY??? WTF??

I thought maybe it was oar on a raft in an ugly gray ocean... maybe for a LOST party or something.

Who knew that helicopter and shovels were related? Not I!

I got the hand mixer (Yay me!) I only got the ballet slippers because of the word "DANCE" on the side which, at first glance, I thought said "DUNCE". I guess that would be appropriate. :) I had no guess on #4 and I ran out of time... awwww man!

Thanks Jen! Love it!

Just Jim said...

1. I got hand mixer too
2. I thought it was pink lips
3. I saw a turntable
4. um.....a hippy uterus?

Jenna said...

Oh...
OHH...
See, my guesses were:

1) a diseased handmixer
2) a pair of lips
3) a space station on the moon
4) a spray painted hippie turtle

Totally unappetizing. The last one looks like it tastes of hippie vomit.

Anonymous said...

Huh, I thought I rocked this thing. I thought 2 was a fish until I realized if you flipped it 90 degrees to the left, it makes a pretty good pink owl. I thought 3 was a record player. And the fourth one I think is an ill-fated attempt at a VW van from either the back or the side. I think the black thing in the yellow area is a steering wheel. Although that makes the black cupcake at the front even more perplexing. Perhaps the wreckerator is messing with us and it is a Rorschach inkblot test made for their own amusement.

AMB said...

My answers:
1) A hand mixer (woot!)
2) A ladybug (with stripes?)
3) A record player
4) VW beetle or bus done in ScoobyDoo mystery machine style. A la mystery CCC.

Stacey said...

mmmmmm - I'll have one of the balck frosted airbrused cupcakes on the last cake. I love having black teeth and discolored poo!

sleeplessnights04 said...

hand mixer, fish, an oar in a life raft, and not a clue :o( too funny; ballet slippers, please!

Tiffany said...

As I am reading through the comments:

Bwahahahaaa!! Abby Normal guessed "Epcot" for #4!!!

DING! DING! DING! We have a winner! :)

Still giggling...

Anonymous said...

I thought #3 was a jackhammer resting on a man hole cover. Maybe the polka dots on the hand-mixer cake are cookies - maybe Jodee and Ian like to bake cookies.

Anonymous said...

I thought for sure that #2 was a fish and #3 was a record player. A record player didn't make a lot of sense for a "classic white picnic cake" but I guess a helicopter doesn't really make sense either.

Onyx said...

#2 was ballet slippers?? I tought it was the big plant from Little shop of horrors, in drag.

Helicopter? I thoughtit was cement poo, with blood. A cake to celebrate the end of constipation!

Maybe the ink blot test should be replaced with cake wreck test?!?!

Heather said...

That first cake was my submission! I found it in our local grocery store.

Thanks for posting it! This was a great post...

Miranda said...

Woops. My guesses were:

A fog machine with polka dots
A ladypart post-brazilian
Wet cement with litter on it
Two or three hits of acid.

Cakey Goodness said...

1. Deformed Hand Mixer
2. Lips or heart
3. Martini or Banjo
4. ???????


Abby Normal FTW!!

arlene, long time lurker and giggler said...

WOW, I got #3 right! I must be getting more senile that I thought. And of course I *know* what #4 is but don't want to ruin the fun for everyone else.

Anonymous said...

4 i think is some sort of vehicle. Im thinking cinderalla's carriage maybe. I think thats a steering wheel at the end of the yellow window....

i got the hand mixer

Stacie said...

That was easy:

1. Farting cabin
2. pink clam
3. moon poop
4. love bug.

Duh.

Josin L. McQuein said...

1. hand mixer
2. a corset turned sideways
3. a pain and shovel with cement in it.
4. That's a luv-bug. (A volkswagon beetle with the flowers on it - there's even a slash in place for the steering wheel.)

cakelady72 said...

-Hand mixer, check (not sure why it's polka dotted)
-Ballet slippers, check (read the word dance and guessed)
-raft w/ an oar (I work for Whole Foods as a cake decorator and that's just embarrassing. I'm not sure how they made grey icing either. as far as I know there isn't a natural black color)
- that last one looks like they had left over colors in the airbrush and just went to town.

Donna M. said...

Helicopter looks more like a spatula on a bbq grill.


If anybody goes to the cake show in Austin, you MUST post a picture of the gumpaste Zaphod! MUST...it's required! LOL

Sara said...

Helicopter? Seriously?

I think the last one is a turtle.

A smudgy, floral, colorful turtle.

karina said...

My guesses...
1. Hand mixer (I have one like that but this one happens to be upside-down.)

2. a pink, princess-eating piranha

3. grey poo and a red oar so the recipient, while up a certain creek, will have a paddle!

4. I had no idea. Upon further inspection I think that's the back of Cinder-smella's carriage as she drives away alone because Prince Charming left her at the altar after she fell out of the ugly tree. (note the singular silhouette(black splotch) in the (yellow) window)

Donna said...

I scull (row) as a hobby and #3 looks like an attempt at an oar making a puddle in the water (although it looks more like a canoe paddle than a sculling oar).

Linda L said...

4) The Scooby Do Mystery Van!!!

Melissa said...

Are thos ballet slippers for an elephant? How ridiculous!

That is so not a helicopter. I don't know what it is, but it's not a helicopter. LOL

Softangelkisses said...

#4 - Mystery Machine! My 2 year old watches Scooby Doo...A LOT...

Meagan said...

I figured 1) hand-mixer, 2)Ballet slippers (but only since they wrote "Dance" on it), 3)at first I thought that it was an oar and raft (on grey choppy seas), but then the sticker said picnic, so I changed it to bbq with drumstick., Are we sure it is a helicopter?? 4) I had no idea, it looked liked some weird post-modern art project.

The Black Dog said...

The hand mixer looks pretty good, minus the brown mini poo dots.

I am guessing the last one was supposed to be a car.

MinnieMyself said...

1) A hair dryer (you sure that's not what it was? ;p )

2) The time when Pac-Man went further than simply a bow in his crossdressing.

3) A really nasty internal parasite being passed. (seriously, it actually made me push the rest of my dinner away)

4) Volkswagen Van.

Sandi said...

I think #3 was supposed to be a paddle in an inflatable raft on a choppy sea.

Heather said...

If you turn the first one upside down, and use your imagination to add a few noodly appendages, it is another miraculous appearance of the Flying Pasta Monster!

Ali said...

I'm totally with all of you who think that #4 is a VW bug or van right up to the extra black cupcake tacked onto the right. Why would there be a 3rd wheel hanging out in midair on the side of the car?

(FWIW, I saw a broken heart for #2 and just sort of lost interest while trying to figure out #3)

Cathy Davis said...

The "helicopter" (okayyyy) cake is marked "classic white cake". I think cracked me up the most.

mizdarlin said...

The last cake on the list looks, well...kinda like a school bus from the back, if you were hittin' the mushrooms on the way home from...?

Kaede said...

#4 is a canoe paddle on top of a coil of rope. The rope, or more properly "line" is flemished.

Anonymous said...

RosieLB said...

Are you frickin' kidding me? A helicopter? What was the wreckerator smoking (and where can I get some)?

Anonymous said...

As a life-long Scooby fan, I simply REFUSE to believe that's the Mystery Machine. Partridge Family bus? Maybe.


"Hello, World, there's a song that we're singin'..."


Naw, I wouldn't do that to them, either.

Elancer Belgian Sheepdogs said...

1) A hand Mixer
2) Amber's bustier
3) A bad hallucination
4) The mystery machine from Scooby Doo.

Bekah said...

@Miranda,

"A fog machine with polka dots
A ladypart post-brazilian
Wet cement with litter on it
Two or three hits of acid."

I am laughing so hard I'm afraid I might burst something.

Elancer Belgian Sheepdogs said...

1) Mixer - got it!
2) Amber's bustier
3) A glowing ember on a pile of ash. Perhaps magma coming out of a volcano?
4) The mystery machine from Scooby-Doo.

Anonymous said...

Definitely is a VW bus -- a view from the front, like you're looking into the front window. But it is UGLY indeed, oh god, and to think hippie vans are my favorite car!! :'C

Kaylin said...

I'm not buying it - I think #3 is a life raft with a paddle (in the middle of the grayest sea ever).

deckardcanine said...

Gosh, I never heard the term "hand mixer" before. I've always called them eggbeaters.

Starfyre1 said...

My answers:
1) A hand mixer
2) pink fish and i thought it said Eunice..
3) I actually saw a helicopter in that mess.
4) Is it supposed to be something?

Annie of Blue Gables said...

I honestly thought the pink thing was something to do with the Super bowl in pink. Do you see the XXII?
And the first one looks like a Champion Juicer.

....had to go back & look to see if 2) really did look like vagina! Caitlin must know something I don't.......


My guesses:

1) a hand mixer or a futuristic ray gun

2) lips

3) grey spiraled poop with overlaid used tampon (what could be a more perfect theme for a cake?)

4) a hippy's coffin

.....still can't see the ballet slippers or helicopter tho'

My guesses were: 1: hand mixer, 2: lips, 3: paddle and raft, 4: hippie bus.

Suzie said...

Ok - I swear, that was

1) Hand mixer
2) pink lady bug
3) a spatula (think Rachael Ray orange)
4) No friggin clue

Wide Awake Wife said...

Helicopter? I thought it was a record player?

Anonymous said...

This post was extra fun with the "guess what this is" component. I got 1 and 3 right, but I thought 2 was some type of corset. I guessed 4 was some kind of abstract art, so I suppose that's right too?

Marie said...

I like that the "White Picnic Cake" is gray.

kayak said...

I identified the hand mixer but am left wondering what its meaning is. Bake-off winners, maybe?

The helicopter, now that I know what it is, actually kind of looks like one would if you were standing under it and looking up at it -- though that's kind of a hard perspective to grasp when you're actually looking down at the cake.

wv: morphis -- That image kind of morphis into a helicopter if you suspend the cake over your head.

Talon said...

My guess for #4 is a very craptacular turtle.

A J said...

The "guitar" looks an awful lot a scoop of ice cream on a bone to me...

Two Pugs in a Pod said...

1.) hand mixer 2.) a tropical fish 3.) a dingy with a paddle 4.) Hippie VW bug

Kaje said...

Number 3's not a turntable? Never would have guessed helicopter in a million years.

Jennifer said...

A helicopter??? I thought it was a record player. And grey frosting? Ug!!

heather said...

I thought the third one was a record player...the swirl is the rocord...the cake is the base and that's the arm going across...no?

of course, I thought #2 was a decapitated lady bug, so...

Anonymous said...

My guesses were a hand mixer, a fish lol, grey poop blob with a guitar on it and a bus????

HORRIBLE cakes btw. lol

Dolly Domestic said...

I was thinking hair dryer, but I can see the mixer. #2 I saw lips, #3 - an oar on a life raft, #4 I still have no freakin' idea, even after reading the comments.

fluid_static said...

My guesses were 1) a hand mixer, 2) a swirly deformed vagina, 3) a slightly deformed pizza cutter floating in a puddle, and 4) A radioactive mutant clown car covered in cotton candy.

Helicopter, though? serious?

lewatts said...

That guitar one is obviously a pacifier with a bone coming out of it.

J.R. said...

Wow, I thought I had the I.D. game beat, but helicopter? I guessed "Starship Enterprise." I thought the ballet shoes were a laced-up corset left over from Valentine's day! Perhaps #4 is creative license on the Scooby Doo "Mystery Machine." At least the mystery part fits.

Becky C. said...

I would never have guessed #3! My answers:
1. Hand mixer
2. 2 pink conjoined rugby balls
3. A space turd and oar
4. Psychadelic minivan.

Dana said...

I definitely got the first 2 right (though the second took a serious leftward head twist). The third one looked like a grey life raft in a grey sea, with a weird oar. For the 4th one...I just figured it was a Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds sort of thing...

Anonymous said...

The last one is a turtle, yes?

Kathleen in Canada said...

I think the last one is supposed to be for a wedding. A rear view image of a car decorated with roses and a heart in the rear view mirror.

LOL so far I'm the only one who sees this... I feel very unique.

Kristers said...

My guesses were:
1) mixer
2) a fish
3) a dart thrown into a dart board
4) some psychodelic nightmare

Anonymous said...

My answers:
1. Cannon
2. Fish
3. An oar over a gray inflatable survivor raft
4. FINGERPAINTING

AllTheBS said...

Nice one, Whole Foods! Is that an organic poop-mixer?

Stoich91 said...

Oh man. Wah. I guessed:

1) Uh.
2) Um.
3) Hmm.
4) AGH!

What? I got it wrong?

a l'ouest said...

1) a hand mixer -- this one was easy.

2) No freakin idea. Ballet slippers, really?

3) A (grey) vinyl disk on a turntable (Why not?)

4) No idea. Something psychedelic.

kateheney said...

I know #4! It's a Furby! An evil furby....
(redundant)

I thought #4 was a poo hair dryer, #2 was lips, #3 was a...lolipop?

Jennifer said...

My guesses were as follows :
1. electric hand mixer
2. a fishie
3. a gray raft with a paddle (when viewed from the top by the way)
4. A cute VW bettle (that didn't turn out so cute)

gs said...

I thought the "guitar" was a female ET with enormous hooters and an unusually small head.

Anne said...

#4 is clearly cinderella's pumpkin carriage, modified for a power puff girl.

Anonymous said...

I actually got the helicopter, but it was the perfect storm:

a) I hadn't had enough caffeine yet, and thought I must be sort of dreaming.
b) I used to work around that kind of thing.
c) It wasn't a good job experience.

deemack said...

1) Hand mixer (really, in comparison to the other, that one's a give-away!)
2) lips??
3) plastic bucket and shovel squashed into the sand? Alternately, roll of duct tape with a scary red squiggle worm?
4) really, does it matter? It's a ccc!

I thought the very first cake (supposed to be a car) was Dumb Donald from Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids cartoons. :D

Can't See Sheep said...

1. funky hand mixer
2. Botox lips
3. Raid or OFF bug coil, the ones you burn to keep bugs away, no idea why someone would want it in on cake, but hey, each to their own.
4. VW decorated after ingestion of Scoobie snacks with Shaggy & Scoobie.

These adventures into surrealist baking are fun! Aw gee mom can I have the Salvidor Dali cupcake, I'll take the little clocks out of it before I eat it. Next week let's do something with a Hieronymus Bosch theme! :)

Heather said...

MY seven year old just asked me if the guitar one was a Rocking chicken bone?!

Chrissiebear said...

Helicopter? Seriously? I don't see it....
However I do think the last one is a LSD induced car from the 60's

Anna Kauz said...

My guesses were:

1. Hair dryer (though a bizarre one)
2. Fish
3. Record player?
4. Hippy bus with a tail, lol!

Steven and Chelsea said...

I thought the first one was one of those full body MRI scanners. I was 0 for 4.

Sophie (prisms) said...

I thought the second one was lips. You know, like a REALLY stale Valentine's day cake (from the 1980's, obviously)

Merry said...

A helicopter? A HELICOPTER?

Kaaren said...

The last one's a puppy. He's leaning on a fence, hence his little black paws. He lost an eye, though, peeping over he wrong fence once. He has flowers in his ears and a blue bow. Also, an unfortunate black growth on the side of his head, poor thing.

Anonymous said...

The last one has to be a butterfly. Look carefully - there are antennae!

purplewowies said...

My guesses:

1) mixer
2) lips
3) "EPCOT" (S.E. XD) with a giant oar on it
4) Puke?

spottheblogger said...

My Guesses:

1) Hand mixer
2) Fish
3) Rubber raft and paddle
4) Car

the momma said...

HAHAHA! Caitlin said a vagina for #2!!!! HAHAHA!!!
And I have to vote "NO" on the gumpaste Zaphod--he's different to everyone! That's the beauty of a book! Everyone has a personalized mental image! Although I was first in line the day Hitchhikers was released in the theater...but I didn't like that whole flipping-head thing Zaphod did...okay, that's a big enough comment.

saraH said...

that helicopter is SO a record player! and the last wreck is an oncoming VW bus with one side mirror and some cop lights on top.

mykidsmomx4 said...

I haven't read anyone else's comments yet, but I'm going to say what I thought they were...

1. I got that right, hand mixer
2. fish
3. guitar
4. a baby carriage!

I give myself a 50% for getting 1 & 4 right (what? of course #4 is right!) and 40 bonus points for effort... whew-hoo! That's a whopping 90%. I am awesome.

sluj said...

1 - mixer
2 - venus fly trap
3 - bacon on a stove-top grill
4 - vw bus. on acid.

Jaye said...

I got the first one right. I said the second one was a fish..the third one some sort of alien thing..and the fourth I did a 'what the hell?'...
seriously...people are getting a PAY CHECK for this crud???? I need a new job!

scrappinfox said...

#4 I think is the Scooby Doo Mystery Machine. Or at least it's supposed to be. Maybe.

Anonymous said...

The hand mixer is almost cute in a elegant-girly-cartoony sort of way. I like the way they did the beaters. I can see what they were trying to do, but they didn't quite pull it off. My mixer doesn't have giant chocolate chicken pox.

Sparky said...

I guessed the following:

A> A canon.

B> Lips

C> ....I struggled with this one and eventually settled on "...frying pan?"

D> Volkswagon Beetle from the 60's

I'm sad to say none of my guessed matched yours, but at least you're not entirely confident either. Lol.

tangeria said...

the last one has got to be the "mystery machine" only this time the scooby gang didn't find the bad guy in time to stop him spiking the water...

auntnursecathy said...

I do believe the third one is actually a round gray life raft with a melted oar. The sticker says it is a "classic summer picnic cake". and the last one is a VW Beetle if you were on drugs.

Nona said...

the 4th one is a turtle!

THE BALLET SLIPPERS LOOK A LADY BUG WITH ITS HEAD CUT OFF!

Pamegranate said...

I got the first two but thought the third was one of the stones they use in curling. Maybe I've just been watching too much Olympics.

memaby said...

Tammy G

1. I totally thought the mixers on the hand blender were sperm and the polka dot structure was well.....some kind of metaphor.

2. I saw a fish

3. At a total loss but thought baseball bat on a washed out/snowey pitch

4. And the last one, I can't help but think it might be the big comfy couch??
