9+ People Who Should Have Double-Checked The Recipe

How many times have you stumbled upon a recipe on Pinterest that intrigued you, and you thought to yourself, "I can make that"? I'll admit it, this happens to me a lot.

Unfortunately, sometimes your overconfidence may actually come back to bite you when you realize that you took on more than you can handle. When that happens, it isn't always pretty.

Oh my goodness, this is probably the most interesting pie decorating I've ever seen. Especially since I just love octopus. But even I know not to touch this recipe because it can easily turn out like this.

I know this girl was going for a cute snowman. But, unfortunately, what she ended up with looks just a little bit more like Jabba the Hutt. Do you see the resemblance? I think it's pretty uncanny.

There's a reason I've never made a pie all by myself. And it's pretty much because I'm afraid of making a melted mess just like this person did. Just eat it with a spoon, ha, ha!

I think somebody overcompensated in ingredients that were called for in this recipe. And what they made is something that's actually desperately trying to escape from the baking pan. At least that's the impression I get. And you?

Heating up leftover rice should be the easiest recipe out there, right? Well, as it turns out, there are people who even struggle with this cooking task. I don't think it's supposed to look like this. I'm not judging! We've all been there.
