Over 13.4 million of us tuned in to the grand finale of the most recent series of The Great British Bake Off, proving that the British public love to revel in the trials and triumphs of amateur baking.
While we can’t all be as fabulous as Mary Berry or as skilled as the contestants on the show, it’s always fun to try something new and get creative in the kitchen. However, sometimes our home-baking exploits don’t go quite to plan. In fact, sometimes they go horribly and hilariously wrong.
Here are some of our favourite food failures, guaranteed to make you smirk.
1.To infinity and beyond-awful baking attempts!
2.No animals were harmed in the making of this cake.

4.Some people can’t even be trusted to use a toaster.
5.This Frozen themed birthday cake is the stuff of nightmares.
