17 Birthday Cake Fails That Will Make You Feel Good About Your Baking Skills

Like us on FB:

Most of us love birthday cake, am I right? There aren’t many things that are as delicious as a savory, moist cake with soft, creamy icing on it. When it comes to icing the cake though, there’s definitely an art to it.

Some cake decorators have carved out a solid living for themselves with their talents. You won’t see any of their work here. No, these creations are by people who should never be allowed to decorate another cake for as long as they live. Some of these are so bad, they look like they’re straight out of a horror film. Enjoy.
