21 Pinterest Cooking Fails You've Literally Never Seen Before

These people should never cook again.

We asked the BuzzFeed Community to send us pics of their absolute worst cooking fails. Here are the hilarious results.


8. This simple vanilla cake:

"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."


10. These less-than-perfect cookie bowls:

"Once I tried to make those Pinterest-famous cookie bowls for ice cream. Something went terribly wrong. My friends still make fun of me for this! The worst part was that I actually went to school for baking and pastry for a year."



14. These lackluster chocolate chip cookies:

"We forgot to add the flour ingredients to our cookies. We had everything sifted and ready to go, but we forgot to combine the dry ingredients and the wet ingredients! Don't ask me how, considering both my friend and I bake quite frequently and we were following a recipe that we had successfully made before."


15. This depressing frosting job:

"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 made it worse."



17. These "easy" brownies:

"I'm pretty good at cooking, but for whatever reason I cannot produce baked goods to save my life. This lump of charred concrete was meant to be delicious brownies. My wife is now in charge of all baking."


19. This batch of homemade caramel gone wrong:

"Tried to make a quadruple batch of caramel in what I thought was a big enough pan. Turned my back for one second and sentenced myself to an hour of painstaking (and very sticky) cleanup."
