Hilarious Kitchen Fails That Will Make You Feel So Much Better About Your Cooking Skills

Let’s face it, most of us are nowhere close to Gordon Ramsay or Paula Dean. Well, we try to be good and some of us really put in a lot of effort to be good at cooking. But these hilariously-bad photos indicate that some people should only consider the option of ordering takeout than to prepare something themselves in the kitchen.

One thing is for sure that these people are not born with a great talent for cooking. We just hope that they keep on trying to become better (after all, practice is the key to success). And another reason why they should keep on trying is that we’ll get more hilarious photos like these. So, without further ado, let’s get started:

1. Birthday Cake Gone Wrong

This is an example of paying attention to what kids don’t like. Well, we can’t figure out the exact intentions of the person who made it.

The cake was made by someone for her friend’s daughter’s birthday. As expected, one of the kids started crying.

2. Bread Horror Show

We are sorry for showing you this picture as it seems like it came straight from the hell. It’ll probably give you nightmares for a long, long time.

Bread Horror Show

Apparently, they were supposed to be smiling faces. Now it looks like they have endured a lot of torture.

3. Peeling Half the Potatoes in the Bag

This is just a hilarious photo and the backstory is more hilarious as well. It is an example of taking a given task seriously.

When asked to peel half of the potatoes in the bag, the lady friend of this person did exactly as asked and peeled half side of each potato.

4. Egg with Rice For Visitor Alien

This poor person just wanted a good breakfast. The intentions were good but the outcome wasn’t.

It can be used for creating hilarious memes. For example, this is the face you make when you turn on the phone at night.

5. Pizza Fail

Most of us love pizza and this sight simply breaks our hearts. Well, life is not as easy as it seems.

We just hope that the cook composed herself and decided to start again by ordering a pizza.

6. “Hey, Where Are My Glasses?”

It is safe to say that the baker lost his/her glasses and decided to keep the working going.

“Hey, Where Are My Glasses?”


We can’t blame the baker for this because he clearly didn’t see his/her glasses in the first place.

7. The Look of Defeat

Well, the cat couldn’t wait for her human “servant” to give her food. So, she took the matter to its own paws.

The Look of Defeat


The look on this lady’s face clearly shows that she has accepted the fact that she can’t do anything about it.

8. Creating Lava

We are not sure whether this person is trying to be a cook or a scientist who has evil plans about the world.

Creating Lava


A simple attempt to make caramel failed and it seems as if he/she harnessed the sun.

9. Atomic Brownie

It looks as if there was a huge explosion inside of the cup and everything just spilled out.

We can only assume that the person who did this experiment won’t think about doing it ever again. Too much time gets wasted in cleaning the oven.

10. Money Cake

This picture beautifully depicts what we can get in reality if we set our expectations too high.

The intentions of this person were good but she didn’t expect that it would turn out to be this bad. Cookies are really underrated, try them next time.

At Least He Tried


We feel sorry for the husband as he was too afraid to say sorry to his wife face to face.

12. Main Reason Why You Shouldn’t Cook

It is hard to understand how someone can mess up even when it comes to making spaghetti.

Main Reason Why You Shouldn’t Cook


Probably the cook left the burner on high and forgot about helping the spaghetti slip down the pan.

13. Meatloaf Nightmare

This is a really scary sight for anyone, even the cook. One wonders why would anyone think about making a baby out of food.

Meatloaf Nightmare


It looks as if the meatloaf baby is possessed.  Good luck taking this picture out of your mind.

14. Better Buy a Rice Cooker Next Time

It is really difficult to comprehend how someone can accomplish this kind of disaster.

Better Buy a Rice Cooker Next Time


One thing is for sure that there is something more than just rice which caused this hilarious mess.

15. Recipe: Souls of the Damned

Not everything goes as planned and this picture clearly indicates that the person who cooked these wasn’t expecting to see souls of the damned.

Recipe: Souls of the Damned


One can say that it did go about 5% as planned. But hey, looks don’t matter (or maybe they do in this case).

16. When You Cook in College

Cooking is not an easy thing to do, especially when you don’t know the properties and functions of kitchen utensils.

This person thought that everything is made of steel and nothing would go wrong. Well, a mistake was made that day.

Some people may think it is a salamander or even an albino frog. Go wild with your imagination.

19. Nuclear Lunch

Who knew foods could cause as much havoc as a nuclear bomb (well, it may become true if we don’t plan for our future resources).

We can’t stop thinking that there is a high possibility the advertisement on the box is: “nuke and eat.”

20. Hot Bath for the Chocolate Bunny

Well, they wanted to make a cake for their beloved mother on Mother’s day and ran out of chocolate. Time was running short and they had to come up with a solution.

Hot Bath for the Chocolate Bunny


Desperate times call for desperate measures. Hence, they decided to use a chocolate bunny. At least the bunny looks happy.

21. Side Effects of Drinking

The person just wanted to have some good time. So after getting drunk, she decided to have something to eat. Instead of ordering something, she opted for baking.

Side Effects of Drinking


We can only assume that the smoke alarm woke her up. We are glad everything turned out to be okay…at least the things that mattered.

22. Just a Slight Kitchen Mishap

We can’t exactly figure out what actually happened here. The thing that is baffling us is that this lid is not even from the pressure cooker.

Just a Slight Kitchen Mishap


Whatever caused this mishap, we are sure that this person will be more careful in the future (or may not cook ever again).

23. Happy Birthday

It is believed that this is SpongeBob’s less famous brother who went the wrong way and started doing drugs.

Apparently, it looks like the cook decided to ice the cake when it was still hot. Nevertheless, it gave us a hilarious photo.

24. Tortured-Bunny

Well, it looks as if the bunny has enough of the torture and is ready to accept its fate.



Although there are so many things that are wrong in this picture, we’re not sure why this person thought a bunny has 4 front teeth.

25. Devil Spinach Baby

You can think that a spinach baby would be easy to make, you’re right! But we have no idea how this person messed this up.

Although it looks hilarious, it can prove to be a costly mistake. We just hope that this person learned his/her lesson.

Secondly, we believe that the chef did a really good job because it is terrifying (that were the initial intentions as well)

When someone tells you to spice up your life, show them this picture and ask “like this?”

If you want to try minimalist sushi, we strongly recommend you to try this recipe.

31. “Oh My Poor Lasagna”

The spelling makes this picture really funny and also the fact that the person dropped his/her “lasagaa”.

“Oh My Poor Lasagna”


The lesson for you: Don’t spell wrong or else this is going to be your fate.

32. Creativity at Its Best

Although it is a hack, we can still consider it fail because we see it as a fail. Different prespective people!

This seems like a good idea if you want to cook but you’re broke.

Ever achieved something that you didn’t expect to achieve even a million years? This is an example of how unexpected things happen.

Master level Cutting Skills

We are wondering whether this person was using an ax to cut the fish or she is super skillful.

34. Love For Cookie Monster

Although the name Cookie Monster has the word “Monster” in it, it doesn’t mean it has to be this scary.

Love For Cookie Monster

Given that the cook tried, we’ll give him -5 points on having the guts to take this picture.

35. This Person Is Probably The Reason Behind The “WARNING: Do Not Use Over Open Flame” Label

We can’t say anything on this one because what has happened here can make any sane person angry.

It is hard to understand how a person cannot see that it is an electric kettle.

36. When You Know Your Girlfriend Started Cooking

This guy knew that it was going to be a lot of smoke in the apartment, so he was prepared for it.

When You Know Your Girlfriend Started Cooking


The fire alarm is only good for other scenarios, not when your girlfriend is cooking.

Steamed Hotdogs


It is a really disgusting fail that may force many people to stop eating hotdogs.

38. Ceramic Fail

When you do not know how ceramic works, it will fail just like as shown in the picture.

Heating the ceramic on the stove top provides direct heat on the bottom, causing it to break.

Gluten Free Skeleton

This picture shows that it is time for the gluten-free skeleton to go back to the gym.

This is just downright wrong as the minion is melted and we can’t take this picture out of our heads.

42. Massacre of Egg Chicks

One must understand that some things are better left alone and one of those things is egg chicks.

Massacre of Egg Chicks


It seems as if the chicks killed each other. It is certainly not a dish to give to kids.

43. Close Enough

The only thing good about this picture is the right number of petals. Other than that, there is nothing correct about it.

Close Enough

But we must show some support and encourage this cook to never ever make this mistake again (or stop baking altogether).

44. 100% for Effort, 0% for Final Result

Okay, we must admit that the first one is too realistic to eat. But that can be said about the second one as well.

After watching the picture, we won’t be surprised if no one eats it.

45. My Roommate Tried To Make Pasta. I Stayed Hungry…

48. Expectation vs. Harsh Reality

It was good for the person to have such high expectations, but she made the mistake of neglecting the harsh reality.

Here is a public service message that can prevent many unfortunate incidents from happening. Don’t cook if you are drunk.

No Cooking if you’re Drinking

It looks as if this cookie was thrown in lava and then brought back. It is horrendous!
