We all the know the lure of the culinary DIY on social media sharing site Pinterest.  Beautiful images of perfect cakes, treats and dinners abound – and the thought of, ‘I can do that!’ reels us in.

Unfortunately, thinking you can do something is not always the same as doing it.  The hashtag #pinterestfail is inspired by this not so positive experience, it is as the name suggests, dedicated to celebrating when we just simply fail at making something on Pinterest.

From the messiest melting snowman cakes, collapsing gingerbread houses and mushed Oreo cookie brownies this ever growing collection of photos celebrates when something just goes plain wrong.

We hope you enjoy this collection of festive Pinterest fails!

  • Haha!! So true!


  • These are hilarious!!! Would love to see more


  • I’m sure there are A LOT more pinterest fails then you would find on pinterest


  • Nick and I were cracking up – more of these posts please!


  • very funny! often things are not worth the bother!


  • Thanks for the laughs Julia. Yes, I’ve had my fair share of failures, but where is the fun in not trying? Haven’t thought of taking photos though, maybe I should try this in future too.


  • how funny it always looks so easy until you give a try thanks for sharing


  • Our pinterest fail wasnt food related but still not what i had expected/wanted.


  • Lol these are so funny i have seen heaps and they always make me laugh


  • HAHA so funny looking at this stuff, pinterest makes it look so easy until you try it!


  • I love these comparisons. Hilarious!


  • I try to stick within my capacity and always try before deciding (or agreeing) to make the super complicated for my family. One too many fails taught me this!!!


  • utterly hilarious – my son and I lost it with the snowmen


  • I prefer the ‘fail’ snowmen – they look like abstract art!


  • Thank you so much for the laughs – it looks like the failures I often end up with.
