Oh Pinterest, you make everything look so easy. Yet, underneath the step-by-step instructions and filtered photos, there lurks a dark secret: making cute stuff is hard, y’all! These 23 Pinterest food fails stand as hilarious testament to the skill, patience, and knowledge it takes to actually pull some of these recipes off.
1. Eggy in a Basket Fail
Is there even bread in there? What even is that? I have a lot of questions about this fail.
2. Paleo Cinnamon Roll Fail
Maybe they still tasted good? Maybe…
3. Hedgehog Cake Fail
The teeth just kill me! This one is so bad it’s good.
4. Hot Dog-Dog Fail
On the plus side, if you look at this one sideways it could be a shark. Don’t give up on your fails, people!
5. Baked Cheese Stick Fail
Meh, it’s okay. Healthy snacks kinda bum me out anyway.
6. Zucchini Chip Fail
Speaking of sad healthy snacks…
7. Frozen Banana Fail
How did the Bluth family make this look do-able?
8. Bunny Roll Fail
Put some butter on these and I’ll eat them no matter what they look like.
9. Bacon Hearts Fail
Nothing says I love you like bacon, but maybe this person should have kept it simple.
10. Skeleton Cookie Fail
This one looks like a before and after picture. That skeleton really bulked up!
11. Fried Egg Fail
Quick, scoop the eggs back in the peppers when nobody’s looking!
12. Vegan Corndog Fail
I still want to give them an A for effort. Vegan ingredients can be tricky.
13. Mickey Mouse Pancake Fail
Cover up the fail with sweet, sweet syrup and nobody ever has to know.
14. Cookie Monster Cupcake Fail
They got the cookie part right.
15. Nutella Mug Cake Fail
I would shamelessly lick Nutella off a dirty floor, so I gotta admit these still look good to me.
16. Rainbow Cake Fail
We need more frosting, stat!
17. Confetti Pancake Fail
This just makes me sad.
18. Jello Orange Fail
19. Cake Pop Fail
Poor little chickie!
20. The Epic Cake Fail
Just not even close!
21. Chocolate-Covered Fail
What I’ve learned about covering things in chocolate: it’s apparently really difficult!
22. Zucchini Fritter Fail
There’s a fork in the frame, so I’m guessing these were still edible. Points for that!
23. Candy Corn Massacre
I would never have the courage to even start cleaning that pan! Props to the brave soul who did this.
