“My mum and I tried to make the duck cake for my little brother’s 14th birthday. The shape was perfect the night before but then the icing made the cake soggy and it collapsed in on itself. We still laugh about it and affectionately named it ‘Chip Lips.’”

“I made this for my brother’s wedding. It was supposed to be the wedding cake, but I was asked to do it with barely two days’ notice. I worked for hours on it, and was given a Pinterest picture the bride wanted. I worked my ass off though, got it done with 20 minutes to get dressed before I had to leave. The cake collapsed about 10 minutes into the trip there. It tasted awesome, but the bride was so pissed at me she didn’t even acknowledge me or the cake ever.”

“Usually my grandma makes great cakes but she couldn’t find a lot of the sweets to decorate so had to improvise. The red icing she used ran out as well. Safe to say it didn’t go well and my little cousins were horrified.”

“My sisters and I tried to make a German chocolate cake for Mother’s Day one year. We got up super early and spent hours making this cake from scratch. When it was time to put it all together everything went downhill. The glaze started oozing all over the kitchen (see paper towels surrounding cake on right) and half of it collapsed! We followed the directions exactly as they were written and have no idea what went wrong! It still tasted good though!”

“My siblings and I have a tradition on birthdays where the other three secretly make a layer each and bring it all together at the last moment. This one had a sponge on bottom, topped with a baked Alaska then a jelly pond… didn’t quite work out!”
