Post your WORST cake!! (cpntinued since after the crash) - Page 3

post #31 of 422
Hah. These are all great. Here's my contribution. My hubby was working out of town for New Year's a few years back. I decided to join him at the last minute, so I threw this pitiful thing together. I don't even remember the sizes of the layers, but the glass on top is about 2 inches in diameter. I have no idea what I used to bake the top layer, probably a custard cup. I obviously ran out of icing while icing it. I didn't know much about layer cakes at that point. Those are single layers, and I thought you put the layers on top of each other and THEN iced it. Yeah...

My original idea when I made the cake was to pour sparkling cider in the glass right before I showed it to him, but after it was done I realized that had disaster written all over it. I put candy sprinkles in the glass instead. It was pretty much a disaster all around. icon_smile.gif

LOL, no, my bear isn't Chewbacca!! I could only dream of raising him to that high of a level of esteem. Somewhere in the orig. thread is actually a great attempt at everyone's favorite Wookie...seriously, 80 pages to read thru...get cracking! icon_wink.gif I think Chewie was somewhere before...p 30? 40? LOL

Hawkette...your cake is really...um...creamy!

Thought I should finally show my face and post my worst cake...I have been following the previous thread (or some of it lol) and thought I should add my contribution..I don't know what I was thinking with this cake...I had wanted to try cornelli lace but didn't have a lot of time to do the cake (thank god it was for family) and my husband wanted all the piping ruby...I didn't even want anyone to take a photo of this one!!!!

Here's the second cake I did while I was taking my first Wilton course. I made it to take to a lunch at church after a canoe trip. I was so proud of it.

After I carved out the canoe I realized that it was way to small to serve everyone so I laid teh cake scraps on the board and iced them.

I guess these photos are good to look back at to see how far we've come.

OMG....you cc'ers have me laughing so hard I'm gonna pee my pants! icon_lol.gif And I'm at work!!!

I always know that when I need cheering up, all I have to do is check out this thread! icon_lol.gif

Last nite I got inspired to look through my box of pictures and couldn't find the one that could have been a good contender for at least 3rd place! Apparently it was so bad I was ashamed to take a picture of it for fear someone would eventually find it and I'd have to fess up that I actually did it! icon_lol.gif

I do have some pics of my wedding cakes that have really hideous attempts by a florist or Aunt Susie pretending to be a florist.....do those count?

The canoe cake was just cake balls before their time sitting on all those cake scraps.

This is my worst cake that I have a picture of. The absolute worst one I do not have a picture of and I don't even want to think about it! The worst one was going to be a teddy bear swimming pool cake for my MIL pool party. However when it fell apart I decided just to make it a dirt cake but I didn't have enough pudding and had about half a cup of white sandwich cookies to crumble on top. My MIL insisted on serving it at the party anyway. I wanted to hide at the bottom of the pool

But here's the worst with a picture. It was for my dd's 2nd birthday party last year. It's a long story but basically our fridge quit that day that I was going to make her cake. My genius but loveable DH decided to get the leaf blower to blow off the coils on the fridge inside the kitchen! Dust went everywhere and settled over everything in the kitchen about an inch thick. So I was up until 1am cleaning the kitchen and then started the cake after that. The piping is creative to say the least, the cake was so pink that you could see it glowing from heaven and the back of it decided to slide off in an attempt to avoid humiliation. The picture doesn't look that bad but it's because of creative camera angles that hide the back sliding off. We also discovered with this cake that my dd is allergic to red food dye after consuming so much pink icing. The best part is the white flowers that I made by slicing marshmallows into large circles. I will probably use that again.

Oooh the marshmallow slicing is a great idea.

Okay, another couple pictures from me! This one was a combined effort between my sister (who made the Russian cake) and myself four years ago for my little brother's birthday. She DESIGNED it, and I tried to decorate it. She wanted to try tiers. Like so many others, we didn't know about DOWELS or SEPERATOR PLATES... Nor did we know that you're supposed to ice each layer SEPARATELY. So we just stacked it, (with a thin layer of buttercream inbetween each layer) and then tried to ice it three different colors. HOWEVER, we'd mixed all the colors ahead of time, but didn't make enough of each one, and didn't want to make MORE icing. SO, as you can see with the first one, we just kind of smeared the leftover colors down the back/sides. So all the colors are kinda smeared together on the borders between layers AND in the back, LEANING badly, SO not smooth, storebought letters... Actually, about halfway through, we realized it was going to be BAD BAD BAD, so we didn't try too hard to make it smooth, because it was still gonna be hideous...

The letters actually USED to say "Happy Birthday", but we broke some, and just rearranged them, so now it says "Boy, I Had a party". We decided it looked like someone had had a "party" BEFORE the decorating phase... We laughed, little bro loved it, and we ate it all. Mmm.
