"I tried to make this cake from a recipe I had never done before. It was the worst thing I ever made. The frosting was also too thick, so I couldn't spread it on the crumbled cake. I cried after I frosted it, but now when I see the cake I can't help but laugh."


18. These spooky Halloween-themed olive spiders:

19. This batch of homemade caramel gone wrong:

12tomatoes.com / buzzfeed.com

"My siblings and I have a tradition on birthdays where the other three secretly make a layer each and bring it all together at the last moment. This one had a sponge on bottom, topped with a baked Alaska, then a jelly pond. It didn’t quite work out!"


21. These scary deviled egg chicks:

“My mom tried to make deviled egg chicks for Easter, but they turned out very wrong.”

—Leah Rullman

22. This sugary mess:

27. This collapsed wedding cake:

cupadeecakes.com / buzzfeed.com

"I made this for my brother’s wedding. It was supposed to be the wedding cake, but I was asked to do it with barely two days' notice. I was given a Pinterest picture that the bride wanted me to copy. I worked my butt off and got it done with 20 minutes to get dressed before I had to leave. The cake collapsed about 10 minutes into the trip there. It tasted awesome, but the bride was so pissed at me that she never even acknowledge me or the cake."


28. These rainbow heart fails:


“My girlfriend and I tried to make rainbow heart cookies. That failed, so we told people they were awkward pride flag cookies. Oops.”

32. The end of the world:

cakecrumbs.me, buzzfeed.com

“Throwback to when a friend and I tried to make a seven-layered ‘Earth’ cake for extra credit in a science class. The best part was it collapsing before we even got to turn it in as ‘The End of World as We Know It’ played on the radio.”

36. This face cake that had absolutely no chance:

womansweekly.com, buzzfeed.com

“Usually my grandma makes great cakes, but she couldn’t find a lot of the sweets to decorate and had to improvise. The red icing she used ran out as well. Safe to say it didn’t go well and my little cousins were horrified.”


37. This dinosaur nightmare:

instagram.com, buzzfeed.com

“My friends — who once set a pan of tinned tomatoes on fire, by the way — made this nightmare. It also tasted kinda awful.”

bigredkitchen.com / buzzfeed.com

"I was trying to make tri-coloured frosted cupcakes. The frosting wouldn't come out of the tip and I had to mix the colours by hand with a spoon. The cupcakes ended up looking like they were topped with Play-Doh. I tried to make it better with sprinkles, but that only made it worse."


50. And this person who literally just wanted tea:
