Almost Famous

Friday, December 10, 2010

Time to play "Guess that Celeb!"


Ok, I know what you're thinking.

But hey, in some countries, Mr. Bean IS a celebrity.

(No, seriously, that's supposed to be Mr. Bean.)


Ok, try this one:

Give up?

Here, I'll give you a hint:

it's Zac Efron.

Allegedly.


How about a little rock royalty?

"He's got mud on his face! A big disgrace! Curling that ribbon all over the place."

Yes, Freddie Mercury: we will Wreck you.


I don't know about you guys, but I like my cakes to have a good head on their shoulders:

Next we'll have to work on having good shoulders under the head.

Oh, and hey, Mr. Tupac Sugar, keep ya head up!!

(Yeah, I admit it: I had to Wiki him to find that song title.)


Poor "Cyndi." Her colors may be true, but time after time those cheeky wreckerators just wanna have "fun." With quotation marks.


'Course, if you think it would be weird to eat a celebrity's effigy, imagine what a weird Situation it is for them:

I guess they ran out of orange icing.



Ok, guys, party time! Grab that Lady Gaga cake; it's time to "poke her face!"


I would complain about this looking nothing like her, but frankly I think it's worse when the cake is a dead ringer:

"And for dessert, allow me to introduce Ray Lewis!"

Creeepy. Also, I've heard of linebackers being built like refrigerators, but this is ridiculous.


If you really want to bring your "A" game, though, then this next cake will fit you to a "T":


I sympathize with the inferior who gets that earring slice.


Thanks Ruzaina, Jenn, Sarah B., Lanique C., Bridget S., Kristy I., James M., Caroline E., & Chrissy K.!

I actually got Zac Efron right! I'm so proud.

mladybright said...

Egads!

Thank you for telling me who they were. Are. Are supposed to be. If that's Zac, I'll eat my hat.

LOL!!

(Shouldn't Tupac be the dead ringer cake?) Yes, I'm warped, sorry. Somehow, though, I seem to fit right in with CakeWrecks and TombWrecks viewers.

Rachel said...

I could've sworn that first one was George Hamilton!

Donkaloosa said...

I do NOT want to eat a cake that looks like a person! And forget the ear slice --- what about those EYE slices????

tjbmurph said...

Mr. Bean? I would have sworn that was Howard Cosell.

'course that opens up all kinds of new questions....

Anonymous said...

It's like Lady Gaga, but with Madonna's front teeth.

mtommasi said...

had fun guessing! that mr. T cake reminds me of the razorback you posted a while ago... odd. love the blog! :)

Anonymous said...

Zac Efron = Paul McCartney + Late-in-life Michael Jackson? Those are pretty big (and weird) shoes to fill, Zac.


wv: sanedum-- I'll never find my way back to sanedum if the path is filled with cakes like these...

Sharon said...

....But you messed up the face,
A big disgrace.
Airbrush lines all over the place.
Singin'

We will, we will wreck you!
We will, we will wreck you!

Handwriting horrors, what did that say?
Leaning tiers to ruin your wedding day.
Mickey Mouse, flash drive, too much space,
carrot jockeys all over the place.
Singin'

We will, we will wreck you!
We will, we will wreck you!

Ugly green camo, severed head and feet,
Heavy on the sprinkles, isn't that a treat?
Barbie, poo, and belly, gangsta, meat,
Hide it with flotsam, they'll think that's neat.
Singin'

We will, we will wreck you!
We will, we will wreck you!

Katie said...

Oh man! The Mr. T cake actually made me shudder!

Amanda Mac said...

Dear Lord.

I ROFL'ed at the orange icing comment. I nearly screamed at the football player (whoever the heck that is).

But Mr. Bean? That is a disgrace. Rowan Atkinson does NOT look like that. Perhaps the wreckerators should've sent the orange icing to the folks who did the Situation cake.

Bakingdom said...

Oh my. That Mr. T head made me ill. The hair...the jewelry...the hair...the fact that it's a random head sitting on a table...THE HAIR!

*gags*

Melinda said...

The first cake looks like George Hamilton with collagen-injected lips. None of them look like anything that I would want to eat.

Anonymous said...

I really thought the first one was spock... I would have never guessed Mr. Bean

Odie said...

Shut yo mouth, foo! That Mr. T cake is awesome. :D

Danger Boy said...

I challenge your identification of Zac Efron...I think it looks more like ET crossed with an anime character.
I think I'll have some pie.

Falze said...

I agree with the earlier note on #1, that's a fantastic Howard Cosell.

Jenniffer said...

I could have sworn that the first cake was Adam Sandler!

Trevor said...

Maybe it's just me, but Tupac's head looks like it's actually doing its best Linda Blair impersonation. I swear when I saw it, I was like "His head is on backwards!" It's probably just the lack of shoulders though. Still, UGH!

This post reminds me why a lot of bakers refuse to recreate people. I had this conversation the other day when talking about The Next Great Baker and the woman who made a "dog." yeah, I was like "Who wants to eat their pet?"

Torey said...

Unrelated to this post - just got a Cake Wrecks calendar for an early Christmas present. Best present EVER, I am SO EXCITED for next year now.

Anonymous said...

I thought Freddie Mercury was John Stossel. Now there's a 20/20 expose - name that cake!

pearljammies said...

Ray Lewis...DEAD ringer...

Nice.

Skwishee said...

I honestly thought the first one was a bad Bill Cosby. And the second one looked like an alien with swoopy/emo hair.

Anonymous said...

I wonder if they made inlay on Mr. T so that when you cut it you see jello brains. I know, gross, but that cake seriously wierds me out.

Barb Black said...

I thought Freddy Mercury was Omar Sharif.

The Mr. T cake is going to give me nightmares. For a Very. Long. Time.

Anonymous said...

The first one looks like Howard Cosell.

Donna Oswald said...

Sharon's post takes the cake (sorry couldn't resist) it was priceless though - Queen & Cake wrecks - 2 of my favs. Scary cakes tho, were the intended recipients someone the buyers actually liked?

Donna said...

I thought the first one was Howard Cosell!!!!

Michele said...

So I was thinking they were:
Prez Obama
Lead singer of Green Day
Tom Selleck
Kobe Bryant
HA!

Rogue Artist said...

I thought that first one was George Hamilton too - at least it would have explained the skin color. I think I was most disturbed by exactly how shiny the face of "Mr. Bean" was.

Tina said...

Not sure who that guy with the torso is, but what's with those fingers on the cake?

Tardis Chic said...

I got the first one right, I love Mr. Bean! To me it looked exactly like him, in a very Mr. Bean sorta way.

Anonymous said...

I can just here the conversation in the bakery when they were making the Ravens player cake (I don't remember his name).
"It would look great like this but it's supposed to feed 100. We will just make him a little beefier to add the extra servings."

critter42 said...

OK, am I the only one who sees the irony in stabbing Ray Lewis with a knife?

Clair said...

I actually thought Mr. Bean was a big nosed Bond...
And what in all this green earth was on top of Mr. T's head? Ewww

Sariah said...

I LOVE Mr. Bean (it's the time of year to watch his Christmas special again. WOOT!!), but I would never guess in a million years that was him. Now that I know however, if I squint really hard and focus on the eyebrows... yeah, I see it. :P

stawberi said...

To the first one, are you sure it's meant to be Mr Bean because the writing on the cake is Bahasa (Indonesian or Malaysian), and the person on the cake does look sorta South-East Asian.

Sara Bellum said...

Around 10 years ago there was a murder in Phoenix, AZ where they found nothing but a headless, armless, legless, torso. It turned out that I WORKED with the accomplice. Yikes. The Situation cake reminds me of this. *shudder*

Jim Todd said...

About the Ray Lewis "refrigerator" comment: there actually was an NFL player for the Chicago Bears, mainly back in the 80s, named William "The Refrigerator" Perry.

Amanda said...

Ewww!

Stella said...

Gives a new meaning to head on a platter. Wrecktabulous.

Amanda M said...

I still can't get over the first one which I thought was either

a) George Lopez
b) Obama
or
c) Diego (from Go Diego Go!)

Never would have gotten it right. :-D

Anonymous said...

My first thought was Howard Cosell as well.

Mary Connealy said...

Cindi Lauper was the first one I got. And that's only because she was standing there.

And eating Mr. T's earring doesn't bother me as much as eating his BEARD. Hairy Cake.

Anonymous said...

Did anyone look at the first one and see Spock? No? Just me then? Okay.

Also, I did get the second one. I think I'm proud of that, but I don't know why.

Caroline B said...

Yay, I recognized Mr. Bean straight away...they can have him, we're fed up with him.
That Mr. T. cake put me in mind of the story of John the Baptist...and that's just not right!

Tricia L said...

#1 is much more Howard Cosell than Mr. Bean (being a huge Mr. Bean fan, I did not at all see that).

#3 is Omar Sharif, sort of.

Perhaps we should rething our dislike of edible photo paper.

Michelle said...

the Mr. Bean one looks like a cross between Saddam Hussien and Adam Sandler...

Anonymous said...

The first one looks like the love child of Dean Martin and President Obama.

And I agree with the dead ringers being worse - getting a piece with the "hair" would trigger my gag reflex. Hair in food = grossssssss.

Anonymous said...

That is NOT Freddie Mercury. Anyone can see that that is the love-child of Omar Sharif and Tom Selleck. Duh.

I am proud to say that I have no idea who the orange guy showing his belly button is.

Alisha Rene' said...

I admit - I actually knew it was Zack Efron before reading the caption. Can I blame that on having a 10 yr old daughter? no? damn!
some of those were UBER scary

Heather said...

Yeah I thought Spock too. And I guessed Justin Bieber instead of Zac Ephron. I think Mr. T's hair is cookie crumbs.

Tsosie and Peterson Bunch said...

Okay, why is no one worried about the fingers on the torso cake that seem to be getting sucked into the black hole that is the bellybutton!!

Pauline said...

How'd they do the hair on Mr T?

Bryna said...

"I PITTY DA FOOL, who has to eat mohawk for dessert!!!!"

I thought Howard Cosell with a really good tan for the first cake.

That Mr T cake... ughhh. I pity the fool(s) who ate it.

Tracey said...

I totally got Freddie Mercury. The rest of them... not so much. And Mr. Bean appears to have jumped aboard the fake-tan wagon. Good stuff, as always!

Anonymous said...

I thought the first one looked like Mark Leonard - He played Sarek, Spock's dad in the original Star Trek

The Mr T cake is scary

Niki said...

I actually thought the 2nd one looked a little like Jimmy Fallon.

I'll never understand why people order cakes of other people. It's like some weird form of pseudo cannibalism.

I would have sworn the first one was Walter Matthau

Ramona said...

A friend of mine shared a wreck on facebook and I was told I needed to post my comment on here so here it is for you...

"I love Cake Wrecks... the cakes, the sarcasm, the references only a true geek would get! It is everything that makes life worth living all wrapped up in one perfect little bloggy package!"

*please note the proper use of quotation marks

noones - as in "noones" gonna buy those cakes! I know, I know... obvious, right? this is what I had to work with... could also be how a wreckerator spells noon

Charlie said...

When did Mr. Bean become African? and is it just me or is the cake for the Jersey shores guy totally flipping us off? Lady Gaga has buckteeth??? And now that you all are mentioning it, yeah having a hairy cake would totally.... ewwww

Michaela said...

@ Sharon (Sharon's Edible Art)

LOVE your remix! Made me laugh.

As did the comment about the orange icing for The Situation's cake. Looks like his cake missed the T part of GTL! Haha

john (not the baptist) said...

Mr. T's head makes me think of John the Baptist. Severed heads are the perfect touch for any birthday celebration.

Human figure cakes are a bad idea. Wreckerators: taking bad ideas and making them worse.

Anonymous said...

The Situation: "Hey, you wanna a piece of me!?"

protojew62 said...

I also got Zac Efron corretct...wouldnt eat ANY of the cakes that look like ppl~gross. Mr. T looks esp. nasty..what's the filling, I wonder? lol

Oldish Lady said...

And for you Sims 2 Geeks -- doesn't the second cake look like Zac Efron was kidnapped by aliens and this was the offspring?

Jabby said...

Oh hmm.. I thought the first one was George Lopez. I love Mr. Bean, but that looks nothing like him!

I guessed the Zac Efron cake just from the hair cause that's the only way I recognize him in human form. I also guessed the Tupac cake based on the bandana.

That Ray Lewis cake looks too real. You almost wonder if he's under the table with his head sticking through.

`I see!' said the Queen, who had meanwhile been examining the roses. `Off with their heads!' and the procession moved on, three of the soldiers remaining behind to execute the unfortunate gardeners, who ran to Alice for protection.

`You shan't be beheaded!' said Alice, and she put them into a large flower-pot that stood near. The three soldiers wandered about for a minute or two, looking for them, and then quietly marched off after the others.

`Are their heads off?' shouted the Queen.

`Their heads are gone, if it please your Majesty!' the soldiers shouted in reply.

I am worried. Very worried. And thanks to your description even more creeped out.

Loo-E Loo-I said...

I also thought the first cake looked like Howard Cosell. Now go back and read it in his voice...LOL

Had no idea who the 2nd cake represented. Looked almost like some claymation guy I've seen on a commercial.

I did get Freddie right, but it does look like the love child of Omar Sharif and Tom Selleck.

OK, forget Tupac's shoulders...what is up with his chin??? Looks like he's got a huge wad of chewin' tabbacky in his mouth!

At least they spelled her name right. I like Cyndi though, she's soooo unusual!

I think because of the angle of the cake, his hands look goofy pointing at his belly button. They're supposed to be pointing at his infamous abs. *eyeroll*

LOL! Reminds me of the joke my son told me...How do you wake up Lady Gaga? You po-po-poker in the face!

It's not a refrigerator, it looks more like a sweat box to me.

LOL @ sympathize with the inferior! Mr. T's nose looks smooshed.

wv: foome: I pitty the foome!

WomanBornInWrongDecade said...

I got the Freddy Mercury one right! I was only 3 when he died.

Brooke said...

Yeah, imma havta go with mildly surprised Cosell on that first one and what is up with torso guy's belly button? I mean, why is the cake pointing at it? Besides the fact that it's a pretty good belly button... for a cake... if you like cakes to have belly buttons... which I don't... but at least it's not hairy...

wv: pnewi What you say when you get frosting hair in your mouth...

Craig said...

EPCOT alert level: orange. As in orange skin tones.

Today on 'Celebrity Celebrity Lookalikes', we have:

#1 Ok, before I scrolled past the 'hair' (or toupe), I also thought Cosell. Brought back to be the new spokesman for Man Tan. Bean? Maybe from the direct-to-dumpster movie, 'Mr. Bean Sticks His Head in an Oven'. Hmm... [strokes chin]

#2 Peter Lorre as 'Zac Efron'.

#3 Saddam Hussein (or Tom Jones) as 'Freddy Mercury'.

#5 Cyndi Lauper as 'Jake' (or maybe 'Elwood'). Featuring The Cake as 'something with way too many quotation marks on it'.

#6 Speaking of Situation orange... The cake is more life-like.

Finally, whoever asked for Mr. T's head on a platter, you got it. What did he ever do to you? What did *we* ever do to you that we have to see that? Do we want to know what the 'hair' is made of?

Joy said...

I thought the first one was Omar Sharif and the second one was one of the Jonas Brothers (but really, Zac Efron could easily pass for one of the Jonas Brothers).

Brat said...

I thought the first one was Howard Cosell.

Those are ALL creepy.

Myeon said...

the first one isnt Mr.Bean LOL
the words are written in Malay(or indonesian,its similar languages)
it says
"selamat hari lahir Hud Haikal"

Goueznou said...

When I saw the first line of the post, I thought, "Yay! I love this game!" But my first three guesses were 1) Leonard Nimoy, 2) I accidentally looked ahead and saw the answer, and 3) Freddie Mercury (right!), and after that I was so stumped by 4) the man with a white bow tied around his head that I kind of gave up.

BTW, to Anonymous @ 11:50 AM "Annette M" -- Fun fact: Mark Lenard continued to play Spock's father Sarek for a couple of appearances in TNG. According to Wikipedia he was only six and a half years older than Leonard Nimoy.

Herouth said...

I also thought the first one was Mr. Spock, but ruled this out immediately after checking his ears.

And anyway, Spock never had such a glazed look. [rimshot]

I totally recognized Freddie Mercury, but it's funny, I thought he died of AIDS, not MUMPS.

Esther said...

The first one looks a little like George Hamilton (with the arched eyebrows and overly tanned face). The last one (of Mr. T) is a little like how I'd expect the head of John the Baptist to look. Creepy.

Sarah Schwerin said...

The first one looks like Spock - if he were from India! LOL!

@Sharon: LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your lyrics!

For #1, my initial guess was George Lopez.

For #2, Ashton Kutcher.

After a few seconds, I guessed John Travolta on cake #3. Never heard of Freddy Mercury.

Cake #4, I thought it looked like a bald Snoop Dog. (Personally, I think SD should shave his head.)

I thought the woman was the cake on #5 for a little while until I looked closer.

Cake #6, I rather have a headless torso cake than one with a head. And also, what is the Situation's appeal? He's really not that cute.

Bec said...

I actually got the Freddy Mercury one right! And I had suspicions on Zac Efron and was fairly certain that was supposed to be Tupac... but the first one?! I thought either Adam Sandler or Barack Obama... never before would I have thought those two could have been mistaken for each other, but never have I seen them rendered in cake form, either.

Ninja Baker said...

I thought the first one was Adam Sandler! And that Zach Efron was Edward from Twilight. Shoulda known it wasnt though since he wasnt sparkling.

Also your comedic timing has reached new spectacular heights. Just when I scrolled down to the Freddie Mercury cake "We Will Rock You" came up on my iTunes.

It was astounding!

Aliza said...

Hey, I'm not the only one who recognized the Bahasa on the first cake! Nice to see wreckerators have gone international :)

#2. OK, the upright cake is cool. But the guy does look like a cross between Ephron and Michael Jackson and the nose & eyes look like they've undergone far too much surgery.

#3 Freddy Mercury? Seriously? I'm with the Saddam Hussein/Tom Selleck rorschach test group here. And LOVED Sharon's song. I want to hear #1 sing that as the CW official theme song!

#4 I think I prefer my wreckerators to have good heads on their shoulders. Which means no people cakes.

#5 Poor "Cyndi" is only supposed to have "fun". Nice to know that even celebs get wrecked cakes, not just regular folks :)

#6 Is it just me, or does the cake look better than the guy?

#8 Yup, I was thinking of The Refrigerator too! I definitely think the baker has real talent as a sculptor-- and needs to switch to a non-edible medium. And having shared a SMALL turboprop airplane with a pro football team (yes, I asked the flight attendant if they'd taken the extra weight into account), I would NEVER even *think* "Bite me" to anyone that gargantuan!

#9 OK, once again, impressive sculpting skills, wrong medium. Eating the head of a fictional cartoon character (or Barney) is one thing, but an actual person? Ugh, cannibalism does not appeal.

Christine said...

Not gonna lie...I actually liked the Gaga cake. Some braces would've been good, though. Also this:

Does anybody else think that the first cake looks like Mark Lenard, circa late 1960s, as Sarek? Paphipti and prosper, y'all!

pikkewyntjie said...

I don't think they got Sitch's ab formation quite right, but the skin tone is "dead on" for a dismembered torso.

Cake, anyone?

Anonymous said...

Funny enough, that first cake to me already screamed Rowan Atkinson (Mr. Bean). He just had a really slimy dark tan and his face isn't as chisled.

The rest of the cakes... meh. I enjoy these blogs because they do show how decorating a cake isn't easy, but if you don't have the skills, please learn them before you try to get a job decorating.

Honestly, I thought that was a life-sized cake of Cyndi Lauper. I had to Google it to make sure it wasn't.

#2 is Zac Efron? I thought it was Gollum, before he lost his hair.

Bree said...

I thought the first cake was Dean Martin. I think it's the hair.

I also thought Zac Efron was Justin Bieber. Clearly I'm not up on my Generation Z teen idols because they all look alike to me these days.

I guessed Freddie correct even though he looks like he has a gland problem.

Ol' 52 looks haunted, and probably because the Ravens are quickly blowing their chances to get in the playoffs. Yep, I'm from Maryland.
