15 Cakes That Definitely Tried Their Best

Baking is a lot less of an art form and much more of a science. Half a teaspoon too much or too little is usually all that separates you from success and complete and utter failure.

Below is a collection of 15 cakes that definitely tried their best but failed miserably. Have a look and see how your skills as an amateur pastry chef measure up against some of the internet's most infamous.

I'm a rocket man.

I think it's gonna be a long, long time before I ever look to reorder from this bakery again. The astronaut on the top looks like an 80-year-old man dressed in a white parka. Aside from that, they did a pretty good job.

I think Jacinda Ardern is going to sue somebody.

My god, this is absolutely terrifying. It looks like an effigy, or perhaps some kind of creepy-ass shrine! I would ask why it is that the teeth look so realistic but I'm honestly afraid of the answer.

"My Friend Made A Danny DeVito Cake For Her Friend. It's Worse In Person."

I'm not sure how it's possible for this cake to look any worse in person, but I'll have to take your word for it. The pink icing was a bold choice, but it's not all bad.

If Steve Harvey has seen this, then I assure you he isn't happy about it.

I don't know how one of the original Kings of Comedy would feel about seeing his likeness represented in this way. And why is the cake in the shape of a triangle; was that a mistake or done purposefully?

This is what happens when you feed mogwai after midnight.

The cake on the right honestly looks like a mogwai as it's transforming into a gremlin. I'm personally shocked that any professional pastry shop would think that parents would be OK with getting blatantly ripped off.

An ode to a rejected cartoon.

So this cake is actually genius. I can't get into the specifics as to why it's so brilliant because they're a little NSFW. All I can say is that you absolutely must go to YouTube and watch Don Hertzfeldt's "Rejected Cartoons."

A real-life *Beauty And The Beast*.

How could you possibly give a little girl this monstrosity of a cake for her birthday? I'm a 33-year-old man and I'm pretty sure that I'm going to now have nightmares about this thing for at least the next week.

Great art is always divisive, as well as open to interpretation

"I made my friend a campfire cake for her birthday but the more I look at it, the more it looks like a flaming pile of poop." - Reddit u/marsupial23

The Elmo on the right looks as if he's been spending to much time with Oscar the Grouch.

This is what happens when you hang out with people who spend all of their time in a trash can. Eventually, it's going to catch up with you.

Olaf wasn't kidding when he said "I melt for you."

Is this supposed to be a joke? This cake looks like something from a Nailed It! blooper reel! I'm honestly surprised that it's even able to stand upright; that nose doesn't look long for this world.

Do or do not. There is no "try."

It looks like in their attempt to make Grogu, this wannabe pastry chef went ahead and made Master Yoda by mistake! I also think that the heat of the candle might be melting the fondant.

Maybe they won't notice?

I'm not one to complain, but if I paid good money for a Minnie Mouse cake and someone tried to pawn off this three-tiered abomination onto me — I'd have an all-out meltdown. This is an example of someone who truly hates their job.

A failed attempt at mirror-glazing a cake.

First and foremost, kudos for a valiant attempt at a difficult task. I couldn't mirror-glaze a cake and I wouldn't even know where to start. However, the cake on the right looks like someone literally vomited all over it.

The look of sheer terror on Cinderella's face is clear to see.

Is it terror or pain? I honestly can't tell. All I know is that it looks possessed and I don't like it. I feel like I'd be too afraid to cut into for fear that Cinderella would scream.

You don't know the *flour* of the Dark Side...

It appears that Darth Maul has really beefed up since we last saw him doing battle against Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi. Getting cut in half clearly does nothing as far as hampering your appetite is concerned.
