Cake-tastrophes! Hopeless cooks share hilarious photos of baking fails after trying and failing to follow recipes from social media

  • Amateur cooks attempted to recreate creative dishes they had seen online
  • But none of them 'nailed it' despite their sarcastic captions stating otherwise
  • They saw the funny side though and captured their fails on camera?

Social media is awash with mouthwatering images of delectable meals, some of which are very creative.

But they can be deceptively hard to recreate in your own kitchen, if these hilarious photos of cooking and baking fails are anything to go by.?

Hopeless cooks have tired and spectacularly failed to follow recipes they've found online on websites such as Pinterest, with very funny results.

None of their attempts are worthy of being photographed and yet the evidence of their kitchen catastrophes have been caught on camera for all to see.

But the cooks have seen the funny side, with many sarcastically saying of the images: 'Nailed it.'?

These are some of the worst attempts to follow online recipes - and they will at least make you feel a lot better about your own culinary skills.??
