Cooking can be tricky so that what you expect to make may not be the reality. Sometimes, things can go terribly wrong and ruin the kitchen. Here are 20 hilarious cooking fails that prove some people really shouldn't have stepped in the kitchen.
1. A Big Flat Cookie
This is exactly what you don't want to see when trying to bake cookies. The dough was probably too buttery and melted in the oven. It may not be a happy result but surely a funny one. Now, instead of many little cookies, you have a big flat one!
2. Pumpkin Explosion
You should be extra careful when using a microwave. It seems like someone wasn't paying enough attention and put a whole pumpkin in it. Well, it exploded like a bomb, but luckily, no one got hurt. However, the cleaning afterward would be annoying.
3. A Diseased Cheesecake
Oh dear, this is probably the worst thing that happens in the kitchen, but unfortunately, it happens all the time. It is exactly what would happen when clumsy people decide to cook one day. Hopefully, it will not eliminate their interest too fast.
4. Walking Ginger Dead
Well, the final result seems to be even weirder than the advertised picture. It's hard to say if it's a cooking fail or success since it now definitely looks like monster gingerbread cookies.
5. Overcooked Lasagna
No one knew what happened to this lasagna during its time in the oven, not even who made this. Maybe the temperature of the oven was set too high, or the person left it in the oven for too long. Either way, try to be more careful next time!
6. Too Many Ducks, Too Little Space
Here is another common mistake when it comes to baking. You have to leave enough room for the bread to grow since the yeast will do its work. Or maybe, this person added a bit too much yeast or baking powder. In the kitchen, it’s all about practice!
7. Undesirable Pancakes
It seems that some people can't make pancakes at all. The first one may look odd, but every one of them? For some reason, all pancakes were heavily burnt. They may still be delicious, but don't eat them if they're already covered in carbon like this.
8. Wrong Amount
As basic as it is, cooking rice is not that easy. People tend to add too much rice, but they can always save it for later. This looks like someone really should invest in a rice cooker. How did they add 10 pounds of rice in such a small pot?
9. Sorry Honey
It looks like a man did something crazy when his wife was away for work. Hopefully, the broil remained okay, but there may not be a rescue for the grill and the melted plastic board. Don't be careless in the kitchen!
10. Outstanding Pancakes
The pan looks like everything but perfect, so is the pancake. As one of the easiest things in the world, how can pancakes stick to the pan like this? A bit more butter or a bit more patience may change the situation.
11. Pikachu Cake
Some funny kitchen mistakes in the world came in the form of failed cakes. And this person tried to make a Pikachu cake, but it was not exactly what the picture shows.
12. Sushi Is Not Easy
Sushi is so delicious that you may want to make it at home, but it's not as easy as it seems. To start with, you need to use proper Japanese sticky rice, or you will get a result like this. Or you can simply go to a sushi restaurant and have the rolls made by a master. They are pricy for good reasons.
13. Leaking Pizza
This picture can be considered as a crime against food because this person basically ruined a tasty-looking pizza. Cooking is not that difficult as long as you use common sense. Hopefully, that person would enjoy cleaning melted cheese from an oven.
14. Egg Alien
Cooking products have such a variety that you can actually buy a mold to make your fried eggs look like an alien. However, sometimes things don’t turn out to be exactly how you want. This image is the example of the eggs expanded upward, and it looks like a zombie-looking alien. Maybe this person shouldn't add all the egg whites in it.
15. Roasted Chicken
Well, this person basically killed these poor chickens twice. This is a result of mistakenly setting the oven to broil when the guy thought he turned it off. Be more careful next time!
16. Poor Gingerbread House
Making a gingerbread house can be a tough task. People look at pretty photos online and come up with ambitious plans to make their own. Sadly, this attempt was a huge failure. Hopefully, they will make something better after practice.
17. Crispy Chips
If you are not sure how to make things in the kitchen, perhaps it's a better idea not to try. This is what happens when you want to make crispy chips in the oven without "crisping" them first. Seriously, they look like real charcoal you would use to make a nice smoked brisket. It probably smells like smoked brisket already.
18. Cat Mess
This looks like a crime scene, but the cat is actually enjoying licking off the sauce. On the other hand, the woman looks like she completely gave up. Or, she had an awful day, and dropping the pot was just the cherry on top.
19. A Mug Cake
Mug cakes are quick treats that can be done in less than 10 minutes, and you only need to use your microwave. However, this is what happens to people when they think it's easy enough for them, but they just don't belong in the kitchen.
20. Completely Burnt
Maybe, it was someone who was so hungry and decided to eat something quick. But obviously, reheating pizza in the oven was not quick enough, and the person fell asleep. Voila, here you go, a completely black one.
