20 Times People Tried Baking Cakes And Got Hilariously Terrible Results

Published 4 years ago

Cakes can get pretty expensive, especially when it comes to the fancier ones. And there’s a good reason for that – baking cakes is hard work. Not only does it require artistic skills but there’s some math involved as well, as even a little change in proportions can completely change the way a cake looks and tastes. But even knowing all of this doesn’t stop some people from trying to bake cakes at home – and they quickly realize they might have bitten off more than they can chew.

People who tried baking cakes at home are sharing the monstrosities they’ve created to the ‘Expectation Vs. Reality’ subreddit, and it’s every bit as hilarious as you would think. From mirror finish cakes that look like aspic to creepy Disney character cakes, check out the most hilarious cake baking fails in the gallery below!

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
