Unfortunately for these folks, many of the results you’re about to see are mostly about the error. Want to see just badly you can bomb in the kitchen? Check out these cooking nightmares.
Mission: Candy Corn Cookies
Honestly, before we even talk about those candy corn cookies, we have to first comment on the state of that poor stove. It's quite clear that with appliances like that, this kitchen does not get nearly the amount of attention it truly deserves. It's a no brainer that whoever would attempt this instant supposedly easy candy corn mix would fail miserably.
Just keep it simple, buddy. It's great that you're making cookies, but lets first master shapes and single colors before we move onto advanced level baking, like two colors and triangles. Baby steps.
Classy Wedding Food
Tossing some sushi into a wine glass is not going to make the contents look any more appetizing. Especially if those contents resemble the sushi you would get at an airport. That's some low-level production right there. In fact it would have even been slightly more presentable on a small plate.
The sushi in there looks old, the vegetables, not particularly fresh. The whole thing honestly looks like someone took their leftovers and threw it into that glass.
Do These People Live In a Safari?
Apparently these were supposed to be garlic bread rolls. It's hard to even tell that these things once even started out as bread because as we can see now, they totally resemble something that you might find a deer leave behind in the wild.
How they let these simple little garlic rolls get burnt into a complete crisp? We do not know. Next time set a timer or buy a watch for Pete's sake, but don't' let this happen again.
What Happened To Those Blankets?
This one attempted to modify Pigs in a blanket. It's the perfect comfort food with these yummy strips of backs snuggled up in a sweet pastry. Yet something went awry.
A couple of jam pastries got caught in the mix and ended getting wounded in the baking process. Don't mix and match.
The plan was to bake some festive bunny ear-shaped cookies. It looked promising, at least so they thought. A few minutes in the oven, things started to go terribly awry and those bunny ear cookies started to evolve into something else, something not quite animal. Dare we say, human? Those cookies came out looking out like little baby bottoms instead!
Certainly not the goal, but actually incredibly cute nonetheless. Might we suggest serving these cookies at a baby shower instead? The shape might fit in better with the theme. We also love the very skillfully placing of the sprinkles. This person does not have a steady hand.
You are what you eat. That couldn't be truer for this Masterchef who created this absolute disaster. Even if things had gone a little smoother and the eyes were a little clearer or the bacon strips weren't burnt to a crisp, we still can't imagine this looking any less horrifying. Why someone wants to make a meatloaf that looks like a mummified head is beyond us.
How about we opt for scary decorations instead and leave creating horrific dishes out of it.
That's a Fluffly Lamb
Flipping through cooking magazines is the best way to find inspiration. And what is more inspiring than fluffy lamb butter? While that picture depicts some high-level skill and perfectly formed fluff, the real-life attempt on the right just looks like a mess with two eyes.
Sometimes we should just leave it to the experts.
Honey, Dinner Will Never Be Ready!
An ambitious dinner indeed, that almost cauldron-sized pot probably had some very tasty stewy contents inside. Unfortunately, the stove on which it was cooking was obviously not strong enough to withstand the sheer culinary weight of it.
While a new cooking unit is surely in order, the food might actually still be intact. Thankfully it was more of an internal structural disaster, than an external one. At least we hope. Of course, that dish could be a failure too.
It's advisable to use pots and pans that can accommodate the amount of food you're cooking. Next time make sure that there is a little bit of space between your spaghetti and the stove plate.
If you're not careful enough, the spaghetti will catch alight and your pasta dreams will go up in literal flames.
We can't deny the resourcefulness here. Skewers are pretty much a must when preparing shish kebabs, or so we thought. Can't get your hands on some wooden sticks? No problem, a hanger will do just fine. The handy hook is a fantastic way to get a good and even grill.
Once you're done, wipe down the grease and simply stick them back into your closet. No one will ever know!
The Inversed Cake
Typically a cake should go inside the bowl, in this case, the cup. The fact that they microwaved a cake mix in a cup might be the actual problem to begin with. This instant dessert went kablam in that microwave.
Well kids, bring out your forks. You can scoff up whatever that catastrophe is right out of the microwave.
The Bread Maker
The poor fella got himself a breadmaker in order to make things easier, because baking a loaf of bread is just the hardest thing in the world to begin with. Heaven knows what went into that thing but whatever came out is horrifying.
It kind of just looks like a cross-section of planet earth. The rocks, soil, and weird crevasses, it's hard to believe that this was actually supposed to be bread. Just get it from the store. Who are you kidding?
Prepare for screaming. And not the joyful kind. The moment the kids lay their little eyes on that thing, that's probably the end of the whole darn birthday party. Poor SpongeBob looks he's come back from a torture chamber.
Interestingly, he does seem to have quite a big smile on his face. We wonder what that means.
Another great example of amateur bakers trying to capture original artworks. This Gatsby-themed cake looks nothing like the original book cover. Those eyes look like they've seen some horrors, and honestly, it probably just caught a glimpse of itself in the mirror. The candy lights are also a great touch.
Thankfully they took the liberty of writing "The Great Gatsby" on the actual cake. Without that, it probably would have just been "Traumatized Blue Man with Swollen Lips."
Don't Cook and Drink
It seems simple enough. Toss in some mini pies and fries into the oven, and let heat and time do the rest. Wrong. A little too much heat and a lot of time resulted in this utter mess.
There can only be one thing to blame and that is that bottle of bubbly on the counter there. An entire bottle of champagne is fun, it can also play games with your memory.
The "Aerated" Pizza
This is certainly one way to make a pizza. Let everything just fall to the bottom. Oven paper? Who needs 'em? Baking trays? What's that? Just slap the whole thing on the griddle and let nature do its magic.
Who needs plates anyway? Just scrape it out the bottom. We don't need to be fancy here. What is this? Rome?
Someone forgot to add the correct amount of water here and the spaghetti just ended up sticking to the pot. That's one stubborn pasta! Though we're not quite there yet, this sure is better than the whole spaghetti on fire saga.
Hopefully one day we will get to balance, where the elements of fire, water, and air all culminate in the perfect pasta balance.
Fork Al Dente
When you've run out of food, just move onto cooking the utensils. That fork, cooked right makes for one appetizing bright green dish. Hey, cooking is all about experimenting.
Jokes aside. Do not leave your plastic handle forks on the stove. You don't want luminous green liquid anywhere near your kitchen.
Not everyone is a master sushi chef. It's hard to form that perfect roll. not to mention getting the sheet of seaweed to stick to the rice like a tailor-made little jacket. It takes a bunch of tries to achieve that. Which is why this person aimed really low.
This literal little bed of rice and fish-shaped-something is the closest thing to sushi that this person is clearly capable of. We appreciate the little dollop of wasabi there too. As if that would make the "dish" anymore authentic.
Perhaps not as terrifying as the mummy meatloaf above but this spinach boy is pretty up there on the freak-demoter. That dental work alone needs some serious attention. If this is some tactic to get kids to eat their greens, we plead folks to just keep it old school and go back to Popeye.
Toothy Spinach Baby with Pastry Diaper is just not working for us. To say that it is unappetizing would be an understatement.
Yin and Yan
The world's balance comes in the form of these cookies. At least that's what their intention was. In reality, these cookies might be a little NSFW.
The cookies might very well taste fine, but one might want to avoid serving that at certain gatherings. Perhaps keep them for the grown-up affairs.
The Little Mermaid
It's always good to try out things yourself instead of relying on store-bought goods. It is however important to really think hard if you're up to the task before you attempt the impossible. Getting Ariel's flowy red hair is challenging and smearing around some baby pink icing is just not gonna cut it. We won't even get started on that face.
Just stick with a simple chocolate cake. You can't go wrong with that.
The Apolcoplsyse In a Pot
Whatever this was before, we will never know. Now it just looks like the literal end of the world as it's depicted in movies and books. The smell of smoke will probably remain for years to come.
We must admit, as disastrous as this kitchen fail is, that is one beautiful heap of burning food.
The Horsey Cutter
This is very confusing. This cookie cutter is clearly in the shape of the horse yet somehow the actual cookie didn't quite get the memo. Instead, it came out to be more of a chubby seal than a galloping stud.
Oh well, it may have its own weird shape but it is actually quite cute! Call them mythical monster cookies. Call them whatever you like, just not horses!
Sweet and delicate Tinkerbell, the cheeky little fairy from Peterpan got an upgrade, and it does not look pretty. This weird pancake clearly did not go according to plan. It's okay, not everybody can be a pancake artist, and not everyone gets anatomy.
This pancake Tinkerbell would have a very hard time flying. Between those clunky mangled wings and those bent tree-trunk legs, Tinkerbomb is staying on that plate. Whether she will be eaten is another consideration too. It does not look very appetizing.
These poor eggs. Going for movie-themed food is always fun and challenging, but once again it's always advisable to pick something a little more cheery. This E.T inspired breakfast is a little hard to "swallow."
Instead of making fun alien style eggs, these look like the scene in which E.T is hooked up to machines in the lab. Someone take this away now!
Some people are knife crazy. The smoothness of the blade, the grip, and of course, the quality of that cutting action. You need the right knife to get the job done. Unfortainely, the job here would be to cut a fish and not the actual chopping board.
It looks as if this knife aficionado may have slightly overreached here. Either ease up know your cutting or get a regular knife.
This gelatinous goop of rice does not look particularly appealing. We're all for experimenting, but sometimes there are just basic foundations and rice is one of them. In no universe does rice get cooked like this.
And no, honey, a burned bottom can not be flipped over and pass for decoration. You can't drop some herbs on burnt rice and make it look it was intentional. The only place this rice belongs is in the trash.
This is a step up for the pizza that disappeared into the bottom of the oven. It this case, it was at least just the gooey and cheesy center that seemed to lose the battle to gravity. The resulting image; an atomic explosion.
Let this be a lesson, folks. Always make sure that your pizza is safe from collapse! No one wants cheese loss when it comes to the pizza experience.
Rice Cake Take 2
Another botched pot of rice we have here. People really don't understand ratios. An overstuffed pot just results in weird clumpy rice cake. It's not a desert, it's a side dish. Treat it as such!
Once again, rice like this does not belong on anyone's plate. Just read the instructions on the bag, Google "how to cook rice." or just stay out of the kitchen.
The Worst Cookies Ever
These terrible tasting cookies never asked to be born, but, alas, here there they are, waiting to be gobbled up and disappear off the face of this earth. Unfortunately for them and whoever made them, their existence is to be permanent. No matter how strong the plea, bad cookies are destined to rot away at the bottom of the cookie jar for eternity.
If you want to get rid of cookies, the only way to really do that is to make good ones.
Baking is a science and in order to get those baked goods in their optimal state. it requires perfect measurements, the right timing, and accurate heat. This an example of a baking attempt that seemed to fail in all categories.
The result; poop shaped cookies that have been burnt beyond recognition. Not they could have ever looked particularly appealing but at least if they weren't so burnt, it could have been slightly more salvageable.
Upside Down World
We all know how important it is to get your peanut butter fix and if you can't open that jar, well then, sometimes you just crack open the jar by any means necessary. If that involves breaking the other end of the jar, so be it.
Whoever did that actually succeed in breaking it open cleanly rather well! Where there is a will, there is away. We do sincerely hope though that this happened only because the lid was too tight and not because this seemed like it made sense.
Scooby Dooby Doo Where Are You?
Seriously, where are you? Because we barely recognize you in that horrific cake. We know it's meant to be you because some strategically placed a picture of the actual you beside the cake. This looks like your evil twin brother.
We give them a point for the valiant effort. Not everyone has it in them to make such a cake.
We're hesitant to call this a kitchen fail as clearly this person does not even have a kitchen. Perhaps the absence of any official cooking appliance is enough to qualify this culinary disaster.
In their defense, this did technically get the job done and we give them kudos for inventiveness. This poor iron-cooked egg can only be a reality in a student dorm.
A Tad Too Hot
Someone must have overheated the noodles to piping hot. Not that that plate helped. What kind of plate cracks like that? It's time to get some new tableware because that is clearly not cutting it.
It's pretty impressive how those noodles just popped right out of the center of that plate. When things get a little too hot and heavy, not even plates can withstand.
Rip It Up
A can opener is generally a must when trying to open canned food. This person proves that you can rip open a tough can of tuna with a perfectly sharp bread knife. You can just really go to town on that thing and eventually find tuna paradise.
We do wonder how desperate this person was for food that would make them go to such great lengths to cut open a can of tuna. Was there nothing else in that kitchen?
Ladies and Gentleman, introducing the Pasta Taco. This piece of masterful culinary fusion could definitely be in one of New York or London's top restaurants. Why this is not a famous dish is a total mystery.
Jokes aside, this looks anything but appetizing. We feel that in this case, the person should have stuck with either tacos or pasta. There is no way that this can be good.
Cooking Skills on Fire
This person really outdid themselves. There are few things just too simple to mess up. And while this list proves to use that people can destroy things like eggs and rice, we would have never dreamed that can do this with toast.
What exactly are the settings on your toaster that could turn this poor slice of bread into a fiery disaster? Did you forget about it? It takes about two minutes to toast bread. What could have possibly distracted you so much during that time? So many questions, so much fire.
Kill It With Fire
Nothing good can come out of a kitchen that looks like that! The mess appears to be the result of total neglect. That aside, there are a few other more questionable looking things on that counter.
Thankfully (we're being optimistic) that meaty dish was saved from being engulfed by the flames. While it's a relief that the dish was saved, might we suggest just burning down that whole kitchen and starting over?
This kind of cake requires tremendous skill and care. Ideally, the colors should all stand separately, like...a rainbow. Instead, in this case, the colors just ran into each other creating more of a tie-dye effect.
On top of that, our master baker demonstrated their poor baking skills by not adhering to using the required amounts, thus the jar overflowing with colorful cake batter.
Don't microwave plastic or glass. It will result in an explosion. While a warming up some chocolate spread might be a good comforting snack, ut might be better to just eat some over a hot pan (out of the jar that is!)
Sometimes it seems as if the less prep is required, the more people will somehow mess it up. Humans are funny like that.
Don't Pea On The Floor
Handling frozen peas requires quite a bit of care. Typically we like them all in one place and not strewn all over the floor.
That must be a nightmare to clean up and a real shame to throw away all that food. Always try avoid food wasting!
Apparently the concept of a cheeseburger is somewhat subjective. There is no rule in the book of hamburgers that states how much cheese is actually required to officially get the name "cheeseburger." To some, that might be a perfectly sized slice of cheese.
Who are we kidding? That is one sorry excise for a cheeseburger and looks more like a prank than anything else.
The "Less Successful Secret Twin Brother of Caesar" Salad
Sometimes you just have to use whatever you have in the kitchen cabinets. If that means replacing croutons with Cheez-Its for you caesar salad, then so be it. It may be a slightly less subtle tasting sort of crunch, but in some ways, it does the job.
While some may take issue with the cheesy snack addition, Others might disapprove of the fact that the salad is drowning in dressing. Oh well, we suppose everything in the kitchen, from sauces to snacks went into that salad.
This sandwich grill has been through a lot. It's confusing how some slices of bread ended up being so terribly burnt and destroyed. The idea of popping a sandwich into these things generally involves as little fuss as possible.
Looks like some major experimenting went down here. Just try a simple grilled cheese next time. Can't go wrong with that. Well, anything is possible, really.
The Muffin Monster
Baking generally causes things to rise, so something didn't go quite right here. Beyond that, the way the muffins sort of melded into one giant muffin tray, makes for an interesting and new kind of dessert aesthetic, even if it's a horrible mistake
We can't quite imagine those things tasting particularly good. At least they tried.
Hamburger Level: Beginner
Whoever made this sorry excuse for a hamburger needs to take a long hard look at themselves. They couldn't even bother making a substantial patty, no toppings, not even a piece of lettuce or tomato. Then there's that random squirt of mustard.
This one of the saddest hamburgers ever made. It and whoever made it should be ashamed.
It's a Delicacy
As we have learned from this, innovation doesn't always necessarily equal tasty. While it's important to push the bounds of culinary traditions, you can't always slap a sausage on a cracker and call it day.
This looks like the poor man's version of fancy finger-food. I suppose we appreciate the creativity.
