20 Baking Ideas With High Expectations That Ended Up As Horrendous Realities

Grab a few ingredients, follow the recipe, stick it in the oven and have a nice glass of wine while you wait for your masterpiece to bake. Well, try telling someone who’s good at baking that it’s all so straightforward and see if you get a spatula to the face.

Because one thing is for sure – even if you closely follow the recipe, things don’t always quite work out as planned. Take the above attempt at baking bird bread, for example…

To be fair to this poor baker, the picture on the left looks almost impossible to re-create unless you’re a master of the craft. Saying that, it is NOT okay to just stick your teddy under a chocolate fountain and pretend it’s a cake.

Poor Ariel. She looks like someone took her face and slammed it into Flounder, Sebastian and Prince Eric’s faces over and over until she resembled this monstrosity. But she seems happy, despite all of the hatred that has obviously been baked into her.
