It’s one thing when your own baking attempts emerge from the oven as misshapen, molten messes that in no way resemble the photos in your recipe book.
But when you’ve forked out a handsome sum for a professional baker to work their magic, cake disasters aren’t quite as funny. Just ask UK bride Celia, whose dreams of a tyre-shaped wedding cake quickly descended into what may be best described as the ultimate Cake Fail.
Celia asked her baker to recreate a black wedding cake resembling three stacked tyres – behold exhibit A:
Not necessarily the wedding cake every girl dreams of, but hey, who’s to judge?

However, what Celia received was… well… Let’s just say this
monstrosity final product didn’t exactly rise to the occasion.
Oh dear. What’s a disgruntled bride to do? Why, share her disappointment with the internet, of course!
Celia posted the cake up for sale – jokingly – on eBay, noting: “A few defects due to maker being unskilled. Uncut, along with large amount of awful cupcakes for free. No topper or decoration. Unusual design. Very heavy.” Perhaps unsurprisingly, the cake hasn’t attracted any bids thus far.
So, the moral of this tragic story is this: If you’ve ever produced a cake fail of your own, take comfort in the fact that a) nobody paid you for it (hopefully), and b) you’re in good company.
