If you've ever ordered a custom-made cake, I bet you know how important it is to give very clear instructions. Because, well, it is very easy to turn a beautiful cake into an epic fail. Especially when you follow instructions too literally and don't have an auto correct for cakes.

This list of epic cake fails compiled by Bored Panda will definitely make you laugh! Take a look, add your own cake fails if you've experienced any, and vote for your favorites! If you liked this article, also be sure to check out the one about people who follow instructions too literally.

Passive-aggressive. I can see a rude customer and a cake decorator who had enough.

This is actually very sweet. I know how this writing came up there, but you can still take its meaning in a more positive way like - it's your birthday, so let's just enjoy the day.
