Truly awful cooking results

Rainbow goop

We’ve all had kitchen disasters, but hopefully never as bad as the ones that BuzzFeed so graphically illustrates in 37 People Who Are Worse At Cooking Than You Are. Here are a few of our favorites – check them all out for reassurance that your kitchen disasters can – and have – been surpassed:

Ruined microwave

Badly frosted cake

    Wow. The spaghetti in the coffee machine actually made me wince.

    I gave up on cupcakes – because I've made a replica of each cupcake disaster shown here! And the electric kettle on the stove – my kids did that as a surprise for my birthday once. And the spaghetti squash – happened to me, only 1/2 of it fell into a loosely closed cardboard box under the microwave. The ensuing mystery – what happened to the other half of the spaghetti squash – is the fodder for many a family kitchen tale.

    To me, all these things are silly memories, and a reminder that perhaps I am becoming a better cook. Or that I have even more colorful disasters in my future!
