Clearly, no one follows orders better than these awful bakers.

1 / 8

Lost in translation

At least it’s German chocolate, though. And did you know that birthday cakes are Greek in origin?

2 / 8

Wait, Tristan’s in blue?

Then no birthday for Tristan this year.

We bet you didn’t know the significance of these 8 different food colors.

3 / 8

What more do you want?

I can’t even right now.

These people might be decorating cakes wrong, but don’t be so smug–you’ve probably been cutting cakes wrong your entire life.

4 / 8

Poor reading comprehension?

Or a brutally honest message to Blank’s wife?

Hey, everyone makes mistakes. Here are some of our favorite mistakes made by little kids.

5 / 8

And not “good riddance”

Even though that’s what we’re all thinking.

6 / 8

How about C!C!

Or C?C? Or C:C: or…

Speaking of embarrassing punctuation mistakes, make sure you’re not making these!

7 / 8
