Food is the fastest way to anyone's heart, we believe, so it's only natural that for such special occasions as birthdays and weddings you might get the temptation of making a festive cake by yourself.

The problem with the internet is that it makes everything look so easy. Take baking for example. Have a quick scroll through Instagram and Pinterest, and you'll find countless birthday cakes, and wedding cakes baked so perfectly that they barely even seem real. However, they are, and they were baked by humans, so if they can do it, why can't you? It can't be that difficult...right? Expectations vs. reality, in this case, are two very different things indeed and it frequently turns out that you are no Gordon Ramsay and no Jamie Oliver either, on the brighter side, though, very capable of a funny fail. So cake fails happen more often, than the creation of a sleek, designer-worthy cake.

Use our funny cake pictures list as a guideline to avoid an epic fail, if you do try to make one yourself.

Pretty sure the original Disney cover of the little mermaid was equally as phallic. Look it up!

Is this really a fail? The person clearly wasn't even trying to make it similar, different features and adding the teeth. This is a joke.
