Post your WORST cake!! (cpntinued since after the crash)

post #1 of 422
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone, in case you haven't noticed, every time someone posts to an old thread that was affected by the crash (i.e. it existed before the crash but also had posts since Oct 2007), the new post gets buried amongst the corrupted pages. If someone posts a new message to the thread, you get an email message notification, but then you can't find the new post. Heath recommended that rather than try to continue to post on threads that have corrupt data, we should just start new threads.

SO I thought it might be a good time to start the Part II / Continued version of the Post your WORST cake!! thread.

Here is a link to the original thread, 80 glorious pages of some very proud moments which most of us are...um...not exactly so proud of!! http://forum.cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&t=18850&postdays=0&postorder=asc&&start=0
If you posted after Oct 13 you're toast (excepting one post from Oct 27).

So please, add your previously posted (after Oct 13) or newly discovered ugly cakes HERE to this thread, but for anyone new to the topic, please go back to the old thread and enjoy the splendor of some of Cake Central's most humorous attempts at bonafide cake decorating icon_lol.gif.

Note that if you dig into that old thread, pages 1-80 are intact and it APPEARS that there is a p. 81-82...but those are actually "no post exists" pages and you won't get anywhere by clicking on them. If you post into that old thread it is sooo hard to find the new posts, so please post here instead!

OK, wait, did you look thru the pics on the other thread?? This does not qualify, it's too darned pretty!! icon_lol.gif. Come on, I know your cakes are gorgeous, but you can do worse than that can't you??!! icon_twisted.gif ROTFL!!

Seriously, I'm kidding. I don't think this cake umm...suits my tastes too well either. but they are soo lucky they had YOU make it, it's gorgeous in spite of itself. Well maybe except that orange border icon_confused.gif

p.s. "frankencakes" -- that's awesome!

I made the Barbie/Princess cake for my 5 year old niece's birthday. See it in my photos, b/c the file is too large to put here.

My grandmother took Wilton Method classes in the early 1980's, and I learned basic stuff from her. When I made this cake, I hadn't made one in probably 15 years.

Just to set the scene, I work over night, 12 hour shifts. I baked the cake before I went to work, and decorated it when I got home. The cake looked good enough for a family birthday party for my niece, but I would never have taken it out for anyone else to see. (BC not very smooth, uneven bodice on the Barbie, etc) Then, I went to take a nap....

When I woke up, that is what I found. The other adults (my mother, sister, s-i-l, brother, my father and stepmother, LOTS of adults to watch 3 children under the age of 10) did not realize that the girls were in the kitchen eating the icing & flowers from the cake. At least everyone liked the cake!

I've seen lots of people post this site http://www.shrinkpictures.com/ to get their pictures to the correct size. I have no experience for it but I know it's worked wonders for others. icon_smile.gif

OK just to be fair since I restarted this thread, I figure I'd upload my worst cake again. This was from before I even realized I wanted to try to decorate cakes. Actually I'll humiliate myself with both cakes from the same day, I can't decide which one is worse. The bear was my DD's smash cake, and the round cake was...brace yourself...meant for the adults. Gaah! The smash cake was so ugly my DD was actually afraid of it! If you look closely you can see how I haphazardly applied sprinkles to it in an attempt to imply "fur".

The cake in my avatar is what I came up with the following year. Bit of an improvement, eh??!

I'll repost too, since the other thread went wonky...

I just HAD to post this cake. My sister is the one who actually did it, but she's okay with posting the picture online...

My sister was living with me last summer, which happens to be when my birthday is. She got some cake stuff from my mom, which included my favorite icing: coconut pecan... However, my sister doesn't like that icing, so she thought, "I'll just put that on HALF the chocolate cake, and put some white icing on the rest!" After getting that done, she thought it needed a little something, and found my food coloring sprays... So, using a toothpick and my red and orange spray, she made what we dubbed "The Creepy Russian Guy"...

Here goes My worst Cake....I was soo dissapointed, I had such a great idea, i had petals around the cake to make it look like a giant flouresent sunflower, my fondant was ripped and separate, the worst part is on the other side. Man I wanted to cry, I had such a good vision for this cake and was soo excited, then as I was making it and things started going wrong, I started to get upset.

Eh Cant have all your cakes come out good all the time when you are first starting out. All the talent on here keeps me motivated!!!!

lol...I LOVE this thread! icon_smile.gif

my worst cake was not too long ago..I made it for a pregnant friend who was on bed rest and was craving chocolate!! IT was supposed to be a replica of DEbbie Browns Baby in a Pram cake...and I was bound and determined to make this super super soft fondant work...well after trying about 50 times...I gave up, left it flipped over and put the baby on top.....

it ended up looking like the "Queen of the Rippled Cellulite!" thankfulyl she didnt care and it tasted really good...just looked ghastly icon_smile.gif

(i posted this before the crash and decided to replay it..lolicon_smile.gif
