Baking Fail

We're having a St. Paddy's Day party at our house, so I was looking up some festive food ideas. I came across this major baking fail: 

Shamrock Cupcakes

Green penis, anyone? Note to self- any sort of shamrock creation must have four leaves. 

Anyone have a funny baking/food fail?

  • @eva116. I do too, but I just can't get past the penis. 

    @pobrecita is that your baking fail? I'd be pissed because that looks like a lot of work to roll them. What went wrong?

  • @cinemagoddess I'm sure you can help her with the fruit recs, right? 

    :))

    @chickenonsunday I can totally participate in helping you with this, but I need to go eat lunch first... before I go buy my self a whole pie to devour instead of eating my healthy lunch I brought in today.

    I like fruit. 

    Just not in dessert.

  • @chickenonsunday This is the most delicious thing I've ever baked. Ever. EVER. Seriously, if this doesn't take home a prize, the judges are broken. Follow the directions exactly. http://www.heidis-so-called-life.com/2010/11/pecan-pie-cheesecake.html

    Right...it's for fruit pie. Just wanted to see if you had any funny commentary for that category since you're so passionate about your desserts.

    @pobrecita, I've had spring rolls turn out like that too. I finally gave up and just buy the frozen ones unless I'm eating them raw like a basil roll.

    My baking fail - one time I made red velvet flavor mini donuts and decorated with a white icing drizzle, and they looked like bloodshot eyeballs. I don't have a pic. Also made an angel food cake that ended up the texture of a shoe insole.

    My story about greens - I picked up 3 orders of collard greens from a BBQ place the other night because I was going to a potluck, and maybe the guy thought I said something else about pot because he said, "Oh, a green party. I haven't been to one of those since highschool."

    I would gladly eat your red velvet eyeballs!

    Did you flip the angel food cake pan over when it was cooling? Fallen angel food is the suck.

  • I know you're all talking about pie. But just wanted to add that I did the Kit Kat cake from Pinterest and it turned out great. But it was seriously more candy than cake. Ahhh, sweet memories.

    @chickenonsunday no worries! Better to hear about recipes that work rather ones that failed ;)

    Sorry I haven't been able to get back to you yet on some recipes.

    It is a frosted two layer cake (any flavor you want), surrounded by a wall of kit kats and topped with M&Ms. It's really easy which was key because I'm not well versed in baking, or being creative.

    Here is my cake. It could have used more M&Ms on top for visual appeal but it was plenty to eat!!
