If baking brownies, cookies, and other gourmet desserts was easy, we’d all do it. Right? Well, most of us certainly try. And most of us succeed. At least most of the time.
And then some times, we don’t. Instead, we’re left with no other option but to laugh at ourselves and our cringe-worthy kitchen catastrophes. In these moments, we probably wonder why we didn’t just order brownie gifts or cookie baskets instead.
If a picture is worth a thousand words, then these pictures of ultimate baking failures are worth a thousand laughs.
(Thank you to good-natured Reddit users for posting their embarrassing photos and to Huffington Post for collecting 14 of the best into an article entitled: Cookie Fail: Reasons You Should Be Easier On Yourself When You Mess Up.)
We’ve included two of our favorite cookie fails in this post. For example, check out the picture above of peanut butter cookies that were so hard that they broke the spatula. Or, enjoy the photo below of chocolate chip cookies that seem to have, ummm, melted in the oven.
