Cakes can get pretty expensive, especially when it comes to the fancier ones. And there’s a good reason for that – baking cakes is hard work. Not only does it require artistic skills but there’s some math involved as well, as even a little change in proportions can completely change the way a cake looks and tastes. But even knowing all of this doesn’t stop some people from trying to bake cakes at home – and they quickly realize they might have bitten off more than they can chew.
People who tried baking cakes at home are sharing the monstrosities they’ve created to the ‘Expectation Vs. Reality’ subreddit, and it’s every bit as hilarious as you would think.
