From decoration “art” that might inspire horror, to cakes so poorly baked they don’t even hold together, get comfortable as you scroll through, upvote your favorites, and be sure to share your cake fails in the comments section below.

#3 I Made Cake Toppers For My Wedding And Forgot To Check The Oven's Temperature Before Putting My Fiancée In

For better or worse, bad cake content does appear to be quite popular. Baking show aficionados know that for every series documenting the best things professional bakers can make, there is a show dedicated to amateurs trying and failing. Take Netflix’s Nailed It! which centers on home cooks attempting to recreate professional cakes.

As one can imagine, it goes wrong most of the time. Even without the pressure of a time limit and competition, people at home mess up constantly. After all, baking is a science, while decorating takes hours of practice. In that sense, a delicious, gorgeous cake takes such a cross-section of skills that it might be best to leave it to the professionals.

Good cakes simply take a lot of planning. Your oven and dishes need to be ready, and your ingredients measured out properly. Temperatures have to be managed, you can’t let your butter be too warm in certain situations, in others, it can’t be too cold. Don’t overmix, but also don’t undermix, let things cool, and don’t overbake, the list of things that can go wrong simply goes on and on.

Because the oven and mixer are doing most of the work, the “human” element of making a cake has to be managed perfectly. Cooking a dish often has more leeway, you can taste, add, and adjust as you go. Even with the plethora of bad cooking tips out there, most of us can make a tasty dinner, given time.

Of course, even if you have mastered the cake batter and baking process, no mean feat, there is also the question of decorating. Applying frosting, managing its temperature, and mixing food coloring to get the right effect isn’t exactly easy as well. It’s like painting, except your tools are five times larger than the more ergonomic paintbrushes.
