- Reddit and Imgur users have shared hilariously awful decorated cakes
- Some have tried and failed to create cartoon characters out of icing and sponge
- Others attempted to recreate designs they have seen online with terrible results
The Great British Bake Off has shown what truly talented bakers can create in the kitchen.
But not everyone is so skilled when it comes to cake-making, as these photos prove.
These hilarious images shared on Reddit and Imgur show how hard it is to decorate a cake.
Nearly all of them are catastrophic attempts to recreate a professional bake they have seen in a shop or online – and they have all gone terribly wrong.
From laughable copies of cartoon characters to the bakers who don’t seem to have even tried, these are arguably some of the worst cake decorating fails of all time.
