Nothing is as deceiving as a recipe. Not even those icebergs that threatened the Titanic. I mean, that lasagna may look pretty in the pictures and the steps may sound so simple, anyone could do it but it couldn’t be further from the truth. That, however, was enough to fool you and now you’re as oblivious as the ship’s captain, heading towards a disaster. A kitchen disaster.
We collected some of the funniest examples of food expectations vs. reality to make you feel like an iron chef. After all, we all need some encouragement. From stained glass cookies that look like they’ve just committed suicide to a rice bear that is more mummy than bear, these dishes make you wonder if someone was brave enough to eat them. Scroll down to take a look why sometimes it’s better to simply order a pizza and vote for your funniest entries.
