20 Cake Decorators Great At Following Instructions. Literally.


Imagine organizing a birthday party. Place the decorations, get the food, invite the guests, hire the entertainment, and… there’s something I’m forgetting… birthdays, birthdays… Oh that’s right! The cake! No birthday party could ever be complete without a cake! And I know exactly what mine should look like!

Now then, it’s complicated communicating your ideas to other people, especially describing what you want something to look like. It’s possible, and even likely, that there would be slight misunderstandings. However, there are misunderstandings, and then there are epic fails.

Here’s a list, made by Bored Panda, of cakes whose decorators followed instructions to the letter, resulting in hilarity. If you like this, you may also want to check out these birthday “cakes”.
