105 Cake Fails That Prove Confectionery Is Not For Everyone

You’ve probably heard about his majesty, the king and the queen of all the delicious cakes smothered with whipped cream, the hedgehog cake. Started as a sincere baking fail by someone who thought that making such a dessert would be a walk in the park, it quickly turned into an internet craze with people deliberately making the worst hedgehog cakes out there. Take a look at some wonderfully awful examples in our previous entry right here.

But a hedgehog cake is far from the only way a cake can turn from good to decent, and then drop to a monstrosity. In fact, confectionery is the perfect environment for some of the funniest, craziest and unexpected fails worthy of a place in the camera roll hall of fame.

So today, we compiled a list with some of the most stomach-churning cakes that show you to be careful what you wish for and do not underestimate a carrot cake that your local bakery is nailing effortlessly. It doesn’t mean you will nail it too.

#92 Nailed It

This is what happens when I think I have not just dropper food coloring sets but a full on 12 piece Wilton professional set of food coloring… only when I went to try to find it, it’s nowhere to be seen. The other three packages of food coloring (one all-the-chemical-way and two crunchy granola colored-by-carrots types) are now an X file. BUT….

I do have 27 bottles of various sprinkles, and this is the result. The kids even helped. My now 6 year old Birthday Boy told me it’s the best cake he’s ever had, and that his birthday was the awesomest yet.
