50 Epic Kitchen Fails That Will Make You Die From Laughter
Maybe you want to make up to your partner for something stupid you've done or maybe you're bored. It doesn't matter, you've found the perfect recipe and you're willing to commit the whole evening to making it a reality. Problem is, nothing is as deceiving as a recipe. Not even those icebergs that threatened the Titanic. I mean, that lasagna may look pretty in the pictures and the steps may sound so simple, anyone could do it but it couldn't be further from the truth. That, however, was enough to fool you and now you're as oblivious as the ship's captain, heading towards a disaster. A kitchen disaster.
Bored Panda has collected some of the funniest examples of food expectations vs. reality to make you feel like an iron chef. After all, we all need some encouragement. From stained glass cookies that look like they've just committed suicide to a rice bear that is more mummy than bear, these dishes make you wonder if someone was brave enough to eat them. Scroll down to take a look why sometimes it's better to simply order a pizza and vote for your funniest entries.

Honestly, what I don't get is these ones that don't follow the original AT ALL. What did you expect? The eyes are those bugged out ones that come in a bag and don't look anything like the original, the nose is upside down, the ears are chocolate chips instead of discs, the colors are inverted (or maybe it was decorated hot and the sugar melted into the cupcake?) and the mouth doesn't look anything like the original. I mean, if you're not skilled or don't have much practice, don't take these liberties or the result will be...what you see here...

A lot of them make me kind of angry: People do you even look at the original?! Use the same "materials", go get a baking mold already! And please please: Frosting only AFTER baking and AFTER the cake is cold! Does anyone read the instructions? Very little have to do with expection vs. reality. You can't expect anything to look like "A" when you don't follow instructions or use material for "B", or rather "Z" :/
Agreed. I mean some projects are just truly advanced projects, but most of them go wrong because of not reading instructions or taking short cuts.
I'd dare to say that a couple of these "fails" are done on purpose. The cooks deliberately messed up the recipes so they could post them. And the ones "I ordered this, the bakery delivered that"... I dunno, but if It happened to me, I would sue the hell out of them.
Yeah, a lot of frosting while still warm and not using fondant and being surprised when the icing isn't all solid like that.
they probably don't even recognize fondant
My thoughts exactly!
Absolutely. Some of these fails are just too dumb.
Take a chill pill!
