17 Quarantine Baking Fails That Prove You’re Not The Only One Struggling

"It’s hard to say what went wrong — I think there were a number of things."

We recently asked the BuzzFeed Community to show us their biggest quarantine baking fails. Here are the hilarious results.

1. This bread that rose to the occassion.

2. And this cake that did not.

3. These muffins that con-caved under pressure.

"I wanted to make delicious banana chocolate chip muffins from a recipe my sister-in-law sent me. They came out a concave mess of crap."


4. This Pikachu that's really trying its best.

"My son wanted a Pikachu cake, so I worked with what I had. I call it ‘Pikachu on acid.’"


5. These angel food cakes that look anything but divine.

"I used an old box of angel food cake mix, but I didn't have an angel food cake pan. I tried using a large muffin tin instead."

6. This bread that looks more like fluffy bologna.

"My best friend and I made bread together, and I had never used a bread machine before. So when he asked, 'What color do you want it to be?' I said pink, not knowing he meant how light, medium, or dark I wanted the loaf to be. He went along with it and put pink food coloring in."


7. These crêpes that fell apart in the process.

"After making these, I decided that I’m just going to stick with making cookies."


8. These carrot cake muffins that ruined more than the oven.

"The pan totally overflowed. There was smoke in my house for days, and it was so bad that I just stayed in my bedroom until it went away."


9. These sugar cookies that are not exactly social distancing.

"I usually bake decently well, but here are my sugar cookies. I think I shouldn’t have grated the butter to soften them."


10. This pound cake that got pummeled.

11. This Bundt cake that left a little something behind.

12. These snickerdoodles that made me snicker.

"My brother saw a post about snickerdoodles and decided to make them. Next thing I heard was, 'G, come help me.' They had all melted."


13. These cake pops that turned into cake kabobs.

"I tried making cake pops. They slid down the sticks."


14. These chocolate chip cookies that pretty much melted.

"My sister attempted chocolate chip cookies from scratch. It’s hard to say what went wrong — I think there were a number of things."


15. And these cookies that are stuck together for good.

16. These peanut butter...eggs?

"They were supposed to be peanut butter eggs."


17. And finally, these brownies that turned out to be a marshmallow mess.

"I tried putting marshmallows on top of brownies. These are the marshmallows after I scraped them off the top in an attempt to salvage the brownies."
