Cake decorating is challenging and every baker and decorator has their share of cake disasters. Here are pictures of some of my worst cakes and cupcakes!

Today, I am sharing ALL of my early cake disasters with you…

Why?

Because MANY of you tell me that cake decorating INTIMIDATES you and you can’t imagine doing what I do.

Just like any BEGINNER, my early cakes were NOTHING special.

Some of them were downright AWFUL but I learnt from my MISTAKES in each cake that I made.

Here are four of my earliest cakes…YIKES!

my early cake disasters 1

Do you see that cake with a cupcake design? That was my FIRST decorated cake. It’s covered in CRUMBS coz I had no idea how to ice a cake…lol

And that cake with the house… I call it the “Leaning tower of Pisa” coz it’s about to COLLAPSE any second…haha. 

And how can we forget my purple cake a.k.a the “dented” cake… it had these odd HOLES all over!

And my first fondant cake with ROSES! Let’s just say that picture looks WAYYYYYY better than the actual cake. There was a BIG tear at the back which you can’t see…lol.

So many cake disasters! 

Ready for some more??? 😉

In the beginning, I PRACTICED a lot on cupcakes and cookies since they are faster to bake and decorate than cakes.

And that led to some very UNUSUAL designs :S

For starters, can you guess which cupcake is the SHEEP in that collage up there? lol

Only my lovely Dad figured out it was a sheep. Everyone else thought it was some sort of a MONSTER.

Here’s a hint… it’s in the top right section 😛

And let’s not even get started with my blue and yellow lady bug.. what the heck was I thinking? LOL!

Let’s see some more…. 😉

Do you see that blue swirly cupcake? Doesn’t that look like UNICORN poop? :S

And that green grassy cupcake…I think someone is having a BAD hair day! lol

I was very PROUD of these cupcakes back then…hehe. 

But now that I look at them again, I end up GIGGLING…hehe.

And here are a few MORE wacky designs…

But anyways… do you see what I mean?

I started off just like any other BEGINNER.

I made MANY mistakes and ended up with many cake disasters.

I was DISAPPOINTED more times than I care to remember but I kept going and CONTINUED practicing.

I still have a LONG way to go but I am NOT giving up and neither should you 😀

Honestly, DON’T get intimidated and just jump into it!

I am NOT going to lie and say decorating cakes is the easiest thing in the world.

But, it’s NOT the hardest thing in the world either like …ummm… let’s say, delivering a baby (OUCH!!!)…lol 😉

That was TRULY the hardest thing I have ever gone through! hahaha

I HOPE that seeing pictures of my cake disasters help you overcome your fear of cake decorating 🙂

Until next time, tata my lovelies!

    Ha ha I randomly found this post looking for ideas to make my baby’s first year’s birthday cake and I couldn’t stop laughing. Not that it’s that bad but because I totally have the me. Did you take the Wilton cake deco classes? Because that cupcake cake one and all the cupcakes, I feel like it’s totally what I made and I would go back home with my knowledge from the lesson of the day and keep practicing and make random designs with my leftover buttercream. Ha ha. Anyways, thanks for sharing!!
