At-Home Baking Failures to Make You Feel Better About Yourself


More of us are cooking or baking at home right now, and we’re not all…very good at it. But, like they say, a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step, and the path toward edible creations starts with some baking abominations.

Lucky for us, a lot of people have a good enough sense of humor about it to post their culinary misadventures publicly that we may revel in the failure together. Here are a few great examples.

It’s good to try new things. It’s good to be bad at those things for a while. If you like it, keep at it. And keep sharing the failures, cause they’re really funny.
