Firstly I want to thank all the lovely people that are true to themselves and don’t mind posting their cupcake disasters on Flickr and elsewhere. You are the people that give us all hope that although we may sometimes fail that there is always a possibility of getting it right at another time! The inspiration for this post actually came from a cake by Linda (Elley) and although I totally feel for her ‘Cake Fail’ this is a great shot!
For Nbejcek the issue wasn’t really about how she made the cake mixture, but how much of it she made. There is something strangely artistic and appealing about this photo.
My final one is from Bassetsfarm and her disaster happened after all the hard work had been done, these looked like they were perfectly frosted. Apparently her carrier decided it didn’t want to lay flat anymore, and crash, multi-cupcake pile up!
I still reckon they look really good, except maybe that bottom one in the middle that seems to have taken the worst beating!
If you love seeing baking disasters there is actually a group on Flickr dedicated to Baking Blunders, so next time you have a ‘oh no!’ moment in the kitchen, take a photo and provide a knowing smile to all of the rest of us out there!
