1. Dropping your knife on the ground.

You have the knife emoji, the arrow pointing down — which means you dropped the knife — and a scared-looking face. You didn’t hurt yourself, and the knife didn’t land on your foot, but it was a close call.

2. Cutting your finger on a mandoline.

You have a cut vegetable (technically a roasted sweet potato), two knives (which indicates the mandoline), a face that has a lot of pain, and blood which indicates a cut on your finger.

3. Dropping a freshly made baked good on the ground.

You have fire and a birthday cake and a heart-eyed face, which means you just made a cake in the oven that you’re super excited about. Then you have the arrow and crying face which means you dropped the cake.

4. Accidentally putting dish soap in the dishwasher.

The water and dishes are meant to indicate that you’re washing the dishes. But then something happens when you’re washing dishes and you get a ton of soap, which means you used the wrong product.

5. Accidentally using baking powder when you need baking soda (or vice versa).

The white circle and square represent baking powder and baking soda. When you mix then up when you’re making a recipe, you don’t get what you expected, hence the sad or annoyed face.

6. Breaking glass in the kitchen.

The glass of wine falls down and shatters. The “shattered” part is indicated by the white conversational emoji. It kinda looks like glass if you think about it. The sad face is pretty telling about how you feel when you shatter glass in your kitchen.

7. Burning something in the oven right before friends arrive for dinner.

The fire and plate of food indicate that you burned your meal. The arrow and the group of people indicate that you were meant to cook for some guests. You feel sad about the whole situation, hence the sad emoji.

8. Grease fire in the oven.

You’re cooking something in the oven (hence the pot full of food), and grease accidentally falls into the heat source and there’s a small fire. This fire is indicated by lots of smoke coming out of your oven.

9. When you accidentally left the freezer door open and everything melted.

You have an emoji with a snowflake and ice cream, and then an arrow indicating that something happened and now there’s ice cream and the sun. This means you left your door open to your freezer and now everything melted. No more ice cream for you.

How well did you do? Are you an emoji master? Or do you need to spend some time on the emojipedia?
