11 Epic Easter Cake & Baking Fails #nailedit

Chicken or the egg: These cakes are well, you can use your own words to describe them. It’s certainly ‘cracking up’. That’s for sure. Is it a cute chick? Um, not really. There’s nothing cute to be seen here. Photos: Cake Wrecks


Bunny sheep: It’s a sheep. Yep. A sheep. But, those bunny ears make it into something entirely different. And, those teeth? Oh, those sheepy, scary teeth! This is the stuff nightmares are made of.

Bunny rolls: So, these aren’t cakes. Obviously. But, they are certainly Easter baking fails. These adorable little bunny rolls look super-simple on Pinterest. The real-life version didn’t come out exactly the same way.

Rabbit Fail: The original is adorable. The try isn’t as awesome. The cute cartoonish cake creation turns into a kid-like baking fail. Hey, that’s okay. Everyone needs to at least try. Right?

Not-so-cute cupcake: This little chicky cupcake (left) was supposed to be sweet — in both taste and appearance. But, that just didn’t happen. Somewhere in the baking process the sweet turned into kind of scary. Well, we can’t all be artist-like cake decorators, can we?

The Easter Impregnator: Not sure why this cake (right) even needs Easter sperm. But its got them. And we’re not convinced we want to eat it…

Raisin rabbits: These little bunnies are kind of bizarre. Their faces aren’t exactly on ‘right’ and the rest of them is kind of wrong too!

Carrot cake: Those bunnies need their Easter carrots. But, what exactly are these? We think this one pretty much speaks for itself.

Marshmallow ears: Baking cute bunny cupcakes isn’t easy. Seriously. These marshmallow-eared creatures didn’t exactly turn out as planned. Then there’s the rest of the face. That’s an “A” for effort!

Devilish eggs: Yeah, yeah, we know that deviled eggs aren’t anything like baked goods. But, this Easter fail was just too good not to include. Maybe the taste made up for the look?

Decided to try making these cute deviled egg chicks from pinterest yesterday #nailedit #pinterestfail #100happydays 53/100

Peeps house: Those Easter peeps are the best. Right? Making a cute little house for them sounds like a good idea. Or, not. At least, not when this happens.
