Ahhh yes, desserts. Who doesn’t love a deliciously sweet dessert? There really is no other way to end a meal so perfectly.
And the best part about desserts? There are so many to choose from! Across the world, people have been baking and cooking up yummy desserts for centuries. And let us tell you – they all look incredible. CNN Travel did some research and found some of the most delicious on all of the planet.
Here are 50 of the most delicious desserts across the world according to CNN Travel.
In alphabetical order of dessert type, here are the yummiest, finger-licking desserts you could ever dream of. I think it’s time to start making travel plans strictly based on this list, don’t you?
1) Alfajores, South America
All across South America, when you step into a bakery, you’ll be sure to find these soft, filled cookies for sale. With shortcake cookies and a dulce de leche filling, this simple cookie is absolutely to die for. By far one of the most comforting treats you can find.
2) Apfelstrudel, Austria
Stretch some strudel dough until it’s transparent, then, wrap around a delicious apple filling that’s filled with fried breadcrumbs covered in butter and raisins, then bake! This, my friends, is an apfelstrudel from Austria – and it’s crazy good.
3) Baklava, Turkey
If you’ve never had baklava before, you’ve seriously never lived. By far one of the most famous desserts from the Ottoman Empire, it’s made with delicate layers of phyllo dough, ground nuts, and honey, however, there are many variations. It’s usually cut into diamond shapes and sold at local stores and restaurants all over Turkey.
4) Black Forest Cake, Germany
“Along with fairy tales and mountain-top castles, Germany’s Black Forest region is known as the namesake — if not the origin — of the country’s most luscious cake. Dark rounds of chocolate cake are doused in a cherry syrup spiked with kirschwasser, a sour cherry brandy, then stacked atop a thin, chocolate base with deep layers of whipped cream and fresh cherries.
5) Borma, Turkey and the Middle East
Borma is a dessert worth traveling for. It’s made from thin threads of crispy, golden knafeh dough with a ground nut filling. It’s similar to baklava, however, this dessert is fried which gives it a very crispy texture. It’s usually filled with either pine nuts, walnuts, or pistachios.
6) Brownie, United States
Would you like some fudge? Perhaps some cake? How about a swoon-worthy mixture of both? That’s basically what brownies are. Some are fudgier than others, while others are cakey, some people prefer a corner piece, while others like a center piece. No matter how they’re baked – brownies are a crowd-pleaser.
7) Cannoli, Sicily
The Italians love their food. There’s no doubt about that. And when it comes to dessert? The Sicilians have nailed it with the cannoli. A crispy shell is filled with a creamy, cheesy filling (usually ricotta) that’s usually flavored with candied citrus, nuts, or chocolate. Divine!
8) Cardamom Buns, Sweden
Even though Sweden has an official Cinnamon Roll Day on October 4th, locals and residents say that the cardamom bun is the true winner. Crushed cardamom is stirred into dough and rolled up with spices and sugar. Perfect with a morning cup of coffee.
9) Cendol, Singapore
Many Westerners might find this Asian treat to be a bit strange, but we promise, it tastes fantastic. This slushie-type dessert boasts shaved ice, iced coconut milk sweetened with palm sugar syrup, then, green rice-flour jelly, sweetened red beans, and pandan juice are added. Tastes heavenly on a hot SE Asian day.
10) Chocolate Chip Cookies, United States
If there’s anything that is quintessentially American, it’s apple pie and chocolate chip cookies. Generally a sugar cookie with chocolate chips, there have been endless variations on this classic favorite.
“Legend has it that the chocolate chip cookie has its origins in a happy accident, when Massachusetts inn owner Ruth Wakefield stirred chopped chocolate into her cookie dough in an attempt to make uniformly chocolatey cookies. Her brand-new recipe was published in a Boston newspaper, and the rest was pastry history,” says CNN.
11) Chocolate Mousse, France
Light, airy, and seemingly straight from heaven, chocolate mousse is made with only a handful of ingredients, but it takes serious finesse to do it correctly. Meaning “chocolate foam” in French, it’s a dessert that is rich and oh-so-satisfying.
12) Coconut Cake, Southern United States
Buttery, vanilla cake is piled high with shredded coconut and 7-minute-frosting, a Southern specialty. It can be found at functions all over the South such as potlucks, BBQs, and church picnics. Don’t be fooled by it’s all-white appearance, the taste is anything but bland.
13) Cornes de Gazelle, Morocco
This dessert is common and beloved all around Morocco. Classically, the cornes de gazelle are a thin layer of dough curved around a filling of ground almonds and orange blossom water. They take hours to make and very labor intensive, but they are most certainly worth the work.
14) Crème Brûlée, France
Of course, the French were going to have multiple desserts on this list because, well, their cuisine is world-renowned. Crème brûlée is one of the most coveted desserts on the planet. Often made using full cream, crème brûlée is a rich custard with a sugary burnt topping. There’s nothing more satisfying than tapping your spoon through that burnt sugar.
15) Dan Tats, Hong Kong
Egg tarts are originally from Portugal, however, they made their way to Hong Kong and they’ve become this city/country’s most iconic dessert. “Perfectly sized for eating out-of-hand, dan tats are best enjoyed fresh from the oven, when the warm custard meets a perfectly crisp crust. And with a map-spanning backstory, dan tats are among the tastiest symbols of globalization,” says CNN Travel.
16) Doughnuts, United States
It’s no secret that we love our sweets and treats here in the United States, and doughnuts are just another prime example. Are they dessert? Are they breakfast? Who cares! With thousands of flavors and types of doughnuts being made in the U.S., you could spend your entire life trying to eat them all.
17) Eszterhazy Torta, Hungary
This lesser-known dessert is an elegant cake made with almond meringue and layers of buttercream. Then, it’s topped with chocolate and vanilla fondant that is ‘spider-webbed’ out. It melts in your mouth and is a local favorite in Budapest.
18) Flan, Latin America
When it comes to custards, flan might be king. Latin America has taken custard and put their own egg-y, creamy spin on it. In Mexico, you can find this melt-in-your-mouth dessert in nearly every cafe. And the caramel drizzled on top? Perfection!
19) Gâteau Fondant au Chocolat, France
Known as “chocolate lava cake” in the U.S., gâteau fondant au chocolat is what it’s called in France. Cut into a piece of this rich, chocolate cake and more melted chocolate oozes out.
“This dark and rich cake is a high-wire act of time and temperature: Serve too early and it’s a sticky pool of hot cake batter; serve too late and it’s a brownie. When the balance is perfect, however, the treat blends the tender bite of a chocolate cake with the oozy pleasure of a melted chocolate bar,” says CNN Travel.
20) Gelato, Italy
Many people think gelato is creamier than ice cream despite the fact that it has a lower fat content. Gelato can be found all over Italy in dreamy flavors from hazelnut to lemon to chocolate and more. Italians scoff at ice cream – it’s all about the gelato.
21) Gulab Jamun, India
Indian cuisine is known to be rich and full of flavor – their desserts are no exception. Gulab jamun are basically doughnut holes on steroids.
“Traditional recipes for gulab jamun dough start with a scoop of khoya, a reduction of cow or buffalo milk that simmers for hours over a low flame, lending the finished product a melting texture.
22) Japanese Cheesecake, Japan
The Japanese cheesecake is a much lighter, fluffier version than the New York version we’re used to here in the States. In Japan, their secret is to use sponge cake, then stir egg whites mixed with cream cheese and vanilla for the sponge cake to soak up. Fantastic!
23) Kashata, East Africa
Peanuts are a staple in East African cuisine and this dessert is a prime example. Carmelized sugar is mixed with peanuts, coconut, and cardamom, then turned into a candy meets cookie. Although the name of this dessert is adapted from the Arabic language, the origin is from East Africa.
24) Kifli, Hungary
Lots of people eat jelly or jam with their bread or pastries, but in Central Europe, they’ll be eating lekvár, which is a chunky preserve made with plums and apricots. A crescent pastry is stuffed with this preserve then baked to create a kifli. Sprinkle with powdered sugar or sesame seeds and enjoy! You’ll be sure to find these treats during the holidays in Hungary.
25) Knafeh, Levant
“Golden pastry tops sweet cream, nuts or salty cheese in this syrupy dessert, which offers a satisfying contrast of texture and flavor. Like many Middle Eastern desserts, knafeh is soaked in an aromatic sugar syrup that infuses the pastry topping and filling with the flavor of roses or orange blossoms,” says CNN Travel.
26) Kouign Amann, Brittany, France
France has made the list once again with this airy and flakey dessert. Basically meaning “butter cake” in the Breton language, it’s similar to a croissant but with a more rustic texture. It’s usually rolled in sugar and sprinkled with a tiny bit of sea salt.
27) Kulfi, India
This frozen Indian treat is rich, creamy, and sweet. Taking hours to prepare, milk is stirred over a low flame until it becomes a reduction with a caramel taste from the natural sugars. Then, it’s infused with ingredients like cardamom, rose, saffron, or pistachio and frozen.
28) Lemon Tart, France
“A slender layer of lemon cream fills this classic French tart, whose flavor balances rich butter, the acidity of lemon juice and the bite of lemon zest. The crust, with a texture that’s similar to a shortbread cookie, retains a fatty crunch that’s an ideal contrast to the silky filling,” says CNN Travel. Blissful!
29) Linzer Torte, Austria
Named after the city in Austria, this is a classic dessert that’s been around since 1653. A fruit preserve is usually the filling in this fan favorite and surrounded by a lattice crust. You’ll find aromatics of cloves, cinnamon, and lemon zest.
30) M’hanncha, Morocco
This golden spiraled pastry is sure to make your tastebuds happy. Filled with ground nuts, orange blossom, and mastic (a natural resin that adds aroma), this celebratory dessert is usually served with traditional Moroccan mint tea. Thinner than phyllo, m’hanncha is made with warqa dough. It takes hours of practice to know how to make this delicate dessert.
31) Ma’amoul, Middle East
Come the holidays in the Levant region, you’ll be sure to find these traditional Middle Eastern cookies. Made with a thin semolina crust, they’re filled with chopped nuts, dates, or both. Shaped into intricate patterns, these mildly sweet treats are a religious tradition.
32) Mandazi, South Sudan
These fritters are eaten with a morning cup of creamy coffee or chai tea in South Sudan. “While many mandazi lovers trace the origins of these fried treats to South Sudan — where they’re often served with a rich chocolate dipping sauce that lands them firmly in dessert territory — mandazi are also a beloved snack across Tanzania, Kenya, Mozambique and Uganda,” says CNN Travel.
33) Medovik, Russia
A hint of honey is what really makes this Russian dessert so special and it happens to be one of Russia’s most beloved treats. Made with many honey cake layers and filled with either creamy frosting or condensed milk, this sweet treat is just incredible.
34) New York Cheesecake, United States
A classic New York cheesecake is a creamy and decadently-rich blend of cream cheese, sugar, eggs, and cream. It draws inspiration from cuisines around the world, much like the melting pot that New York City is itself. It’s a traditional American favorite that can be found across the country.
35) Oliebollen, Netherlands
In the Netherlands, they’ve created this sweet dumpling to offer the world when it comes to desserts. Oliebollen are crunchy, they’re crispy, and the sweetened batter is usually mixed with currants or raisins, then covered in powdered sugar. Find them at street vendors called oliebollenkrams.
36) Pavlova, Austria and New Zealand
“Sink a fork into the crisp meringue shell, and you’ll discover a sweetly chewy interior. Piled high atop the meringue are fluffy whipped cream and tart fruits, a lofty topping whose richness and bright flavor offset the sugary base for a world-class dessert,” says CNN Travel.
37) Polvorónes, Latin America, Spain, and the Philippines
If you love shortbread, you’re about to learn about your new favorite dessert. These tiny cookies, also known as Mexican wedding cookies, covered in powdered sugar crumble easily and melt once they hit your mouth. Recipes found in Manila to Mexico City can be found with pecans, almonds, or walnuts.
38) Qatayef, Middle East
Countries of the Middle East are pros when it comes to delicious desserts. These yummy treats start out as pancake batter and griddled on just one side. Inside, it’s stuffed with sweet ricotta cheese, dried fruits, nuts, and cream. Sometimes you’ll find cinnamon or rose water scented qatayef.
39) Rigó Jancsi, Hungary
Who wouldn’t love a fluffy, chocolate sponge cake layered with apricot jam and chocolate mousse? Yummy! It’s then topped with chocolate glaze and cut into perfect cubes. The texture is silky, smooth, and dream-worthy.
40) Saffron Ice Cream, Iran
Not only is this fabulous ice cream scented with saffron, but you’ll also find rosewater and pistachios. It’s a favorite celebratory dessert during Nowruz, the Persian New Year. It’s also known as bastani and it’s hands down one of the most delicious frozen treats to ever exist.
41) Sesame Balls, Jian Dui, China
If you’re lucky, you can find amazing sesame balls in your city’s Chinatown, but if you want the original? You’ll have to fly to China. With a fried, crispy shell, these glorious sweets are filled with either sweet bean paste or a soft puree made from lotus seeds. Sesame balls are a popular treat during Chinese New Year but can be found year-round.
42) Snow Ice, Xue Hua Bing, Taiwan
“Unusual shaving technique and complex toppings elevate the Taiwanese version above the competition. A creamy base, which can be flavored with everything from green tea to fruit purées, is frozen solid then shaved into a lofty pile of crumbling ice flakes.
43) Sour Cherry Pie, Midwestern United States
Pies of all kinds are quintessential to American culture. And if you’re in the Midwest? You have got to get your hands on some sour cherry pie. Perfectly tangy, perfectly sweet, the Montmorency cherries are the classic filling for this delicious pie.
44) Sticky Rice with Mango, Thailand
A perfectly ripe mango from Thailand is required for this simple but scrumptious dish. An authentic Thai mango is the only fruit that will do. Then, it’s accompanied by sticky rice drenched in sweet condensed milk or coconut milk with palm sugar and topped with sesame seeds.
45) Sticky Toffee Pudding, United Kingdom
“The ultimate in comforting British desserts, this homey sweet is a warm serving of sticky nostalgia. A base of soft cake is studded with chopped dates, then drowned in a creamy sauce. Much of the distinctive flavor comes from treacle, or molasses,” describes CNN Travel. Keep in mind that “pudding” in the UK is a general term for dessert, not like the other custard-type dessert we know elsewhere.
46) Tarte Tatin, France
Clearly, France is leading the list with “most delicious desserts” from around the world. A tarte Tatin is made by layering apples, sugar, and butter in a heavy pan, then topping it off with a round of dough. Once cooked and cooled, flip over. The pastry seals in all the flavor and the sugar carmelizes the apples. Absolutely delightful.
47) Tiramisú, Italy
An Italian meal wouldn’t be complete without a tiramisú for dessert. Whipped mascarpone, layered with ladyfingers soaked in espresso, covered in cocoa, and doused in booze (sometimes). The dessert’s literal meaning translates to “pick me up” or “cheer me up.”
48) Tres Leches Cake, Mexico and Central America
If you like decadent and creamy, you’ll LOVE a tres leches cake. “A fluffy sponge cake is the perfect vehicle for delivering loads of flavor in this wonderfully creamy dessert. The “three milks” that the sweet is named for are usually sweetened condensed milk, evaporated milk and cream, which combine for a delightful cake so wet it’s almost a drink,” describes CNN Travel.
49) Trifle, United Kingdom
Soak some sponge cake in sherry and layer it with jam, custard, and any other sweet treat you might have, then top it with some whipped cream to make this layered-favorite from the United Kingdom. The trifle has been around since about the 16th century.
50) Tub Tim Krob, Thailand
This dessert’s name literally translates to “crispy rubies.” It’s beautiful, it’s colorful, and it’s super refreshing. Made with crushed ice, sweetened coconut milk, and pandan, it’s perfect after a spicy meal. And those rubies? Those are water chestnuts that have been soaked in grenadine, rolled in tapioca flour, then boiled.
If you’re not drooling by now, there’s something wrong with you. Which of these desserts looked the most delicious? Have you been lucky enough to try any? Let us know!
50 Photos Of The Funniest Quarantine Baking Fails
We all have different ways of dealing with perpetual boredom. One highly proactive way you can approach time in isolation is to pick up a new skill or hobby. A popular choice for people during this time is to pick up baking for the first time and expand their repertoire of kitchen skills.
The problem is…it’s not quite as easy as it seems. Enjoy, 50 slides of people’s quarantine baking fails. and DON’T get any ideas!
1) This bread got the chop!
Now it’s one thing to over-bake bread, but it’s another thing altogether to produce break that can withstand an axe chop. They should get hold of your recipe to make bullet-proof vests!
2) These rolls have got the distancing thing down!
Well it would seem like “overnight baking”, may not be the best way to get those soft tasty rolls you’re trying to bake, but if you want rock hard, pitch black golf balls instead, that’s how you do it! Similarly if you’re trying to demonstrate social distancing, that’s the way to go!
3) Well, she’s got the spirit, but she’s a bit confused
It’s all good and well using tray liners to bake your muffins. Problem is, you kind of need the try to line! Otherwise what do you get? Well, you get puffy muffin textured cookies…but at least they’re in liners!
4) That’s lights-out for a lighthouse!
5) Baking is not for everybody
Remember kids, if you’re baking for the first time, follow the instructions VERY carefully. Any number of things can go wrong for the unexperienced. Think of recipes as parachutes! Otherwise your scones, can become stones.
6) Is this how Oreos were invented?
Not sure if these are burnt to a crisp, or simply trying to fit in with the whole “activated charcoal” fad. something tells me however, it’s probably the former. Youch!
7) You can teach an old dog new tricks…
But can you teach an old bread maker to make new bread? No. You cannot, it would seem. You can try, but you may just end up with a pile of…whatever that is.
8) Mmmm, maybe baking isn’t for you…
I mean, look, if you want to bake scorched hockey pucks, I will not stand in your way. It’s hard to tell if these were originally made with oats, or if that’s just the texture you get when you roast cookies to within an inch of their life.
9) Well Tommy, you try it then!
You have to agree with him though, that is one pretty messy…whatever that is. But hey, fluffy sponge covered in sweet, sweet frosting. t may look messy, but looks like it still tastes pretty good!
10) Cookies can’t social distance
Once again, who dropped the ball on telling these cookies about social distancing! Common choc chips, flatten that curve! Instead these cookies are just a flat mess!
11) Well that should just be illegal
Some people love cilantro, some people hate it. Either way, this is a crime against taste buds. Even if you’re a devout fan of the common herb, there is no place for it in a chocolate chip cookie!
Now I don’t know a lot about banana bread, but I’m pretty sure it’s not supposed to be the same color and consistency as volcanic rock. I mean I have heard of lava cake, but I don’t think this is it.
13) When does it become just “one” cookie?
At what point does it stop being several cookies and just become one giant melded together cookie? And don’t get me wrong, there is nothing at all wrong with the idea of a giant cookie!
14) Looks like these cookies didn’t get the memo…
When cookies all meld together like this…do they technically just become one giant cookie? Either way, these cookies are officially breaching the social distancing instructions.
15) Banana bread or sinkhole?
As a fan of a nice fluffy, soft piece of banana bread this does hurt a little. Looks like this banana bread is little more sunken than I would otherwise like, but hey, banana bread is banana bread.
16) Mmm, tasty rocks…
They say the rolling stone gathers no moss, but when the roll is as hard as a stone, what then? It gathers no interest in someone eating it?
17) Now that’s being optimistic
As aforementioned, it’s best to take these little baking losses in your stride. Rather that just throw in the towel (along with the baking itself), you should walk away with a checklist of lessons learnt. Just like this guy did!
18) People are uniting over their blunders
In the eternal struggle of isolated citizens attempting banana bread, yet another casualty has inspired others. Under the hashtag, #Mysham, other bakers have been sharing their own baking mishaps.
19) Those poor bunnies…
It’s not just banana bread that’s getting a hared time right now, these poor baked bunnies aren’t exactly in great shape either. In fact, they actually seem a little miserable. In fact, if nobody told me those were bunnies I would think they’re some sort of ghost cookies.
What was supposed to be a braided chocolate circle (whatever that is…) ended up looking more like…well…I’ll let you decide what it looks like. It seems like this baker already has…
This was supposed to be a nice, neat, braided circle of chocolate, caramel, and banana filled chocolate yeast bread, but the strands all burst and it ended up looking like a pan of Sasquatch feces. Tasted ok, though 😀 pic.twitter.com/gRv9PmyUjn

21) And it goes further than banana bread
I know that you CAN make bread out of potatoes, but I’ve never seen a loaf of bread BECOME one! In fact this disasterous loaf seems to even be growing roots. Hey, maybe before long they’ll be able to grow a whole plantation of loaves.
22) Some even throw their S.O.’s under the bus
Sometimes the shame isn’t even theirs! This guy’s poor girlfriend spent her time, sweat and effort baking him an isolation birthday cake, but I guess it didn’t quite work out so well. Well, it may be good if those are strawberries…but there’s a small chance that they’re tomatoes.
23) Puts the “pan” in “pandora’s box”
Typically cinnamon buns are, y’know…separate. Also they don’t usually amalgamate into this giant, heaving mess of cinnamon chaos. But…it may still taste good?
24) Not even microwave baking is safe
We’ve all seen the ol’ cake-in-a-cup trick, but sometimes it can go pretty wrong. One of the classic blunders that is just too easy to make, is putting way to much of the magic powder in the cup.
25) They say that baking is like chemistry…
…but that may not strictly be true. This baker and science maker is not all that successful in the techniques required to bake this…I guess cake?
This is why I’m a scientist. In case you were wondering this cake doesn’t taste good either. Think I’ll keep supporting local bakers and find a new quarantine hobby to try. #bakingfail pic.twitter.com/v0EOkwfoq1

26) Great if you want to bake yourself a golf-ball holder..
If you’re trying to bake cupcakes however, this may not be the result you’re after. Plus, aren’t cupcakes usually in, like, cups? In fact, whatever this baking is, sort of became the cups.
27) This loaf was a bit of a reach
So desperate was this loaf to escape its fate, that it appears to even have been reaching for a way out. Stay strong, strange loaf, maybe one day you will be free of this world!
28) another…reaching attempt
Here’s another loaf of bread that seems to just be happy hanging out. Not sure what it is that this loaf expects to grab at, but hopefully the next time around this baker may have more success.
29) Cake news…
I mean… your kid knows what a cake is right? At least some of these turned out OK, not sure about those ones on the edge though. I guess at least some of them were worthy of icing.
30) Is there such a thing as a cake exorcist?
I mean, I’m not here to judge. But also, I am. To be honest, this cake looks like it still tastes pretty good, even if it looks a little ghastly. The good news is, a one year old probably won’t discriminate between a pretty cake and an ugly one so long as it is loaded with sugar.
31) Send those macarons back!
I guess as it turns out, homemade almond flour isn’t ideal for making these (usually) delectable treats. They’re usually soft, which a slightly crunchy outer. These however, seem to be hard, with a hard outer, not to mention charred to a cinder. I’m no macaron expert but I’m sure that’s not how it was meant to go.
32) It’scone badly
I’m pretty sure there’s supposed to be a difference between scones and cookies. And I’m pretty sure it’s not just that one of them can’t be mispronounced. I won’t even get started on the whole cookies vs biscuits debate…although if I were, I would point out that a biscuit is something that you dip in your tea…so it has been and so it shall always be. Wot wot!
33) How do you burn something without even burning it?
According to this tweeter, they somehow managed to create these black-as-night banana bread muffins, but without actually burning them. They point to the colour being caused by some other sort of drastic chemical reaction, which I do have to call BS on. I’m no baker and so I know a burnt muffin when I see one!
34) Somewhere over a horrendous mess
What delightful little cookies (biscuits) this person set out to bake. What they got however, seems like more of a surrealist painter’s nightmare, put on a baking tray and shoved into the oven at 350 degrees for five minutes too long.
35) Well I’ve heard of lava cake…
But I’ve never seen it actually molten! Did somebody try actually scooping lava from the earth’s mantle, then dust it with frosting just to throw it back in the oven for another hour? Not going to lie, a little curious about how it tastes…
36) This funny bunny
This ambitious baker set out to make an adorable bunny cookie. Instead, what they ended up with was some sort of grotesque, molten horror-rabbit. Just going to say though- still looks delicious.
37) Silly Rabbit
Well, they got the ears and eye-holes right, but the shape…not so much. Instead of cute little round bun-nies, they ended up with these messes which seem to have amalgamated somewhat, just to be broken into square rabbits.
38) Fail? OR prevail?
While this person didn’t quite get what they set out for, but by the sounds of it, it kind of worked out in the end! I’ve certainly never heard of using wild yeast from dried fruit to make bread, but hey, maybe I’ll try it for my failed baking attempt!
39) What is it with the bunnies?
I guess that following Easter, everybody was in a rabbit state of mind, but maybe they should have looked a bit closer at those recipes. To be fair, this rabbit actually just looks jacked! That’s a gym bunny for sure.
40) Oh the horror…
What fresh nightmare is this disastrous creation? What little bakery of horrors could produce such a hideous mess? I will say what I’ve been saying this whole time though- I bet that is still as sweet and chocolaty as if it were immaculate.
41) Pretzels have seen better days
The MUTANT pretzels went a little wrong when they went from being wonderful little bread knots to…whatever those folded lumps are. I can’t tell if those are salted, but, is this person eating them with Nutella? Is that normal? Am I missing something?
42) This terrifying cookie
It’s hard to feel good about your baking skills when your pug seems to be shaken to the very core by a mere cookie. Usually dogsa re all to ready to take any treat in front of them, but this pup is petrified.
43) This custard tart turned to…custard?
Either something went wrong with this recipe, or there is something evil in that oven because something is strange in this neighbourhood. Somehow the eggs in this custard have rebelled and spilled out into a separate omelette alongside. I guess there’s nothing wring with a bonus omelette.
44) Actually kind of cute
Y’know, I’m not even 100% sure that this is even technically a fail being rather cute in a way. I mean, that is a “face” in the loosest possible definition of the word, but still! How much is that doggy?
45)Well, at least this guy has the spirit!
The important thing is that when you mess up horrendously in the kitchen over this period, you learn from your mistakes and try again. Before that though, just follow the damn recipe!
46) Nothing better to do?
While this is certainly tame as far as these fails go, I’m sure it’s not quite up to scratch for this quarantine baker. I don’t know, I feel like with a hefty dollop of cream and cup o’ tea, this would be pretty delightful!
47) Not as it appears
It seems like this video is just like Vin Diesel. Hard on the outside, but soft and sweet on the inside. Unlike Vin Diesel however, this break is probably not ready, and probably wouldn’t be cast in The Chronicles of Riddick. Probably.
48) A flop of glop
Well it seems like many things went wrong with this, a perfect storm of missing ingredients, faulty equipment, and gloopy consistency. Better luck next time! Given that we’re all quarantined, that could be literally any time!
49) Upside down cake, upside down?
Well I’ve heard of upside down cake, but don’t you need to turn it upside down first. And if this isn’t upside down cake, then why does it…appear to be upside down?
Well, that’s also not how you spell focaccia, but I’m just going to let that one slide! You know what else is sliding? This sloppy, melty dough. Sorry, I meant “D’oh!”

1) The Zombie Roll Apocalypse, Coming To a Dinner Table Near You
I’m just going to come out and say it—are those rolls vomiting? What a scary thing to come home to, unless it’s Halloween. If that’s the case, then these spewing faces might be just what the kids ordered. Kudos to the cook who made them, this picture made my day with a good laugh. Thanks for sharing!
2) RIP, Cutting Board
On one hand, it’s nice to be left a note by your spouse or partner. On the other hand, now you have to replace a cutting board and an electric burner. At the end of the day though, it’s nice to know that you’re loved.
3) 1 Minute Wonder
I love sushi but don’t have the stomach (literally) to try making it. This though, I could handle!
“Sushi Chef Level: Beginner”
4) Watch Out—Exploding Chickens!

It’s no secret that Americans love their fast food. In fact, we love all of our chain restaurants, whether they’re regional or national. Can you really blame us? We have some pretty kickin’ food. Just take McDonald’s, which has traveled across the world and garnered new fans in 101 different countries. It may not be good for you, but it sure is delicious.
That being said, eating out is expensive. Spending $50 a week — about the average for Americans — adds up to $2,500 every year. So how can you get your favorite restaurant recipes without spending that much money? You make them yourself, of course.
The good news is that in the age of the internet, it’s not as hard to learn as you might think. There are entire blogs dedicated to crafting “copycat” recipes of our favorite restaurant meals, from fast food all the way to fine dining. Whether leaked recipes or just imitations, they’re the next best thing to the dishes we know and love.
So, if you have the fast food bug or trying to save some money, grab a whisk and look through these recipes from all your favorite restaurants.
