9 unfortunate cakes that ended up looking like penises

We’ll be honest – there’s not much that makes us chuckle quite like a really great cake fail.

From cake decorators who spectacularly misunderstood their instructions, to professionals whose creations aren’t quite as perfect as one might expect, comical images just seem to be so much funnier in cake form. (Hey, there’s a reason we’re all suckers for a good Bake Off innuendo, right?)

And of course, there’s nothing that makes grown-ups giggle more than a rude-shaped cake springing up in some unexpected places (particularly if those places happen to be kids’ birthday parties… yep, we’re that mum struggling to stifle our laughter in the corner, sorry!)

In the spirit of sharing, we’ve rounded up some of the best cake cock-ups of all time – and trust us, they’ll make you feel MUCH better about your own kitchen skills…

We’ll never look at the Pig family in the same way again!
