It’s time to laugh at other peoples mishaps again. Ever looked at a picture of a cake on Pinterest and thought ‘I could do that’? The expectation, sadly, is often very different from reality and here is some hilarious examples of that…

Awww, what a cute cat cake. Shouldn’t be too difficult…

Someone baked this and then thought to them self that Lindey’s was the best place to take and share with all their friends.. #cakefail #food #whatareyou

Apparently there is also a lot that can go wrong with cakes that look like lambs…
Nailed it!

Another person who thought they could do it…
