Epic Cake Fails - Cakes Gone Wrong!

Updated on June 23, 2016

Not all of us have the artistic flair when it comes to baking and decorating the type of masterpieces the "Cake Boss" throws out. That's why you should probably leave the baking of "important" cakes to the professionals.

However, there are a few "professional" bakers who follow their baking passion blindly (or maybe blindfolded). They bake with a 'devil-may-care' attitude and then decorate it with equally reckless abandon.

As it turns out, there are instances that you might have done a better job than the person whose actual job it is/was to bake the cake.

Here is our 'favorite' Cake Fails listed from worse to..er even worse. Prepare to be amazed, disgusted and dumbfounded!!

A birthday is not really a birthday without a cake but there are those rare times when it would have been better if you just forgot the cake on the roof of the car when you picked it up..

When you leave someone in charge of the baby shower cake, be sure to choose that person very, very carefully or you and your friends / family might spray their drinks all over each other when they see the cake version of you with sprawled legs, popping Jr like a champagne cork. And "yes", I'm referring to an actual cake with the exact theme.

See for yourself..
