Have you ever tried making something you saw on Pinterest and failed miserably? Well, let me tell you:

You’re not alone!

Pinterest-gone-wrong images are one of the most common things around the internet and it’s easy to figure out why - they’re hilarious! These seven Pinterest food fails will definitely put a smile on your face!

But remember,

This reminds me of that saying about if the universe gives you lemons then make some lemonade, but this person took it one step further: if the universe doesn’t give you lemons, but you still want the lemonade, IMPROVISE! Can’t deny people are creative, right?

Chicken Cakepops

Cakecops are the ultimate harder-than-it-looks food. I can say from my own experience: it’s really hard to get the dipping and pulling back right. At least one cakepop will stay drowned in the dipping bowl. In this case, though, I can’t even say where it all started to fall apart, but I can say best luck next time!


Princess Ariel (or is it?)

The only thing that comes to mind when I look at this (other than laughs, of course) is that they tried to do a rendition of Ariel meets The Beast. You know, the one from Beauty and the Beast...before he turns into her prince.

Eggs Gone Wrong

Isn’t this a fun cooking trend? It sounds easy enough - use slices of green pepper to hold eggs. This is one I haven’t even tried making at home (yet) because of this photo. I simply know the first couple of tries will be a huge mess.

Penguin Cupcakes

This person should get an award on not giving up. Even when the cupcake icing didn’t work out, they didn’t give up and just went with it. Let this kind stranger be an inspiration to all of us!


Bunny treats.

I wouldn’t say this is the worst fail ever, I mean, you could use the excuse that you were just making some festive Halloween treats, right? That would be the perfect way out for this.


Creepy pancakes.

First of all, the inspiration photo already gives me the creeps, and somehow it got even creepier. Can’t help but laugh at it (even though it’s a nervous laugh, it still counts, right?). Next time you’re going for something like this, use a zip bag and cut the tip so you don’t have batter going all over the place, okay?
