Post your WORST cake!! (cpntinued since after the crash) - Page 16

post #226 of 422

Here is another cake that I hate! I seem to have a lot of losers and very few winners...this cake was made for a friend who was obsessed with Twilight...I used powder sugar to roll out the chocolate fondant, then wiped it clean with a damp cloth. I think that was a mistake...then the topper which was made of gumpaste with a edible image glued on with coffee to give it the sepia tone started to fall apart. The whole cake was a nightmare! (The rose sprays were bought. Don't mind the messy kitchen, we were at a party and we had just finished supper. )

After I finished laughing, not so much at the pics as all the coments you all have left, I can now post a pic.  It is not my worst.  But one really bad cake topper.

 

My niece told me it looked scary and I have to agree.

It was for my friends little girl and they loved it, so guess that's what matter's right!

Thanks!  The worst part of it was the navy blue buttercream...never again.  Let's just say navy blue is not a good color...Thankfully it was for my husband.

Okay, this is totally morbid I know.. my son's 9th birthday was coming up and I planned for months to try my luck at one of those r2d2 cakes, and like always I waited till the last few days to get organized. \then he tells me he no longer likes starwars and really digs Indiana Jones. My head was spinning. so i found a pic online that was of the monkey skull from Indiana jones and she had made it into a cake ,brains and all. I thought, ohh look if I screw up the jello will hide it. I made this cake in 2 hours... right before the party that is how prepared I was..

Anyways. when I brought the cake out some kids actually backed away and everyone was super quiet. and some of the kids lost their appetite and wouldn't eat it! Next year its going to be a happy cake ;)

lescrumptiuos, would have been better at halloween.  Sorry, I can't help it.  Not trying to be mean, the story is funny, the cake is really well done.  If I tried to make it in 2 hours it would not have come out so nice.

This was right after I decided I wanted to go to pastry school. Its fun fetti box mix made it pizza pans from my job. I didnt have any idea what to do, and had never iced a cake outside of the pan before. I didn't have enough strawberries so I ended up cutting them the other way. Boy is it an ugly cake, but it sure does hold a place close to my heart.

And this one is pretty bad too. This is back in the era where my family did not want me to waste cake and would not let me cut of the top.

Tink was to be put on after. Although I am sure she would have went straight to the bushes as soon as she saw the poor cake. Haha! You know what though, at that time I was so incredibly proud of that cake, the Mom and girl loved it and I learned a whole lot from it. What more could you ask for right. I would bet that in 5 years I will look back on the cakes I am doing now and say the same thing.

A compromise is the art of dividing a cake in such a way that everyone believes he has the biggest piece.

The cake isn't so bad but check out those roses.  Looks like somebody sat on them.  I still can't make a pretty butter cream rose :(

Why d'ya think I did an outline of a rose for Mother's Day 2012, and edible images of roses for my mother's birthday cake this year? I haven't found the time to learn to pipe bad roses, let alone good roses.

James, you're too funny!    I have watched all the tutorials and methods that members on CC have provided - I even gave making them on a stick a go and watched it plop into the sink before the second row - lol   I just do better with gum paste

I love what I do and do what I love

It took me 2 whole years to learn how to pipe roses.  Til then they were the same, flat.  I use to cry all the time. lol
