Madison Thomas | @inthelifeofmads Are you a Pinterest addict? Think you are the next Martha Stewart? Think again. Here’s to all the epic Pinterest fails that crushed the crafting and cooking dreams in all of us.

#1 Red, White, and Blue swirls of doom: These 4th of July treats were supposed to brighten up the holiday, but without a little time in the freezer, they sort of lost their spark.

#3 Too Much Kiss and Tell: A baby picture with good intentions, but maybe a little too much lots of love and lipstick.

#7 The Leaning Tower of Peanut: There was a minor slip-up when making this Peanut Butter Ganache Cake, apparently it is best to let the cake cool before adding the icing otherwise it’s a slippery slope from there.


#8 From Glitter To Gag: A husband help-out gone extremely bad – when trying to create glitter jars, black pepper and kernel oil are poor substitutions to say the very least.


What it's supposed to look like:

bottle 1

The end result:

bottle 2

#9 Lightning Mc-Can’t Do Cupcakes: These Lightning McQueen cupcakes are not exactly racing to the finish line, in fact, they are lacking in the car persona as a whole.


#10 Ruined Rainbow: Probably one of the most popular and widely attempted Pinterest crafts can quickly turn into a waxy mess.
