And the Epic Pinterest Fail:

Says Jamie: “I tried. I really did. And I know how to bake … but this was a fail of epic proportions. Not only did I waste HOURS, but I wasted a crap ton of cake cutting out the little hearts. Sad panda! They just came out as pink blobs in the middle. I wanted to scream … but instead I just ate a bunch of my failed cupcake creations.”

Aw, we were hoping this one would work out. Sometimes the only thing to do in these situations is to pour yourself a stiff drink and shake it off:

And the Epic Pinterest Fail:

Says Kristin: “I really wanted a fun halloween party this year … I thought the kids would get a kick out of edible chocolate blood! Bought ingredients, mixed, prepared, and it immediately began to fail. The chocolate wouldn’t come though the fountain, so I manually tried to twist it to help it get started, and there was pink chocolate everywhere! I couldn’t get it that deep red color either. The kids wouldn’t eat it … The adults wouldn’t eat it! I thought it’d be a little cheaper than dipping chocolate, but it actually cost more and was a complete waste. Fail!”

Oh no! It seemed like a good idea in theory, but this recipe failed harder than Ryan Seacrest high-fiving a blind man:

Candy Corn Cupcakes Fail

The following post was submitted to us by Tracy at MadeFromPinterest.net. Be sure to check out their site for other Pinterest fails (and wins!).

The original pin – make chocolate cupcakes and let them cool. Then cut the top out in a funnel shape and layer in the colored frosting:

And the Epic Pinterest Fail:

Says Tracy: “Everything was going fine until I went to cut the cupcakes. When the first one didn’t turn out, I decided the knife I was using wasn’t sharp enough. So, I got out one of my ‘expensive’ knives thinking that was the problem. Five cupcakes later, I ended up with the same results on every one. All the colors ran together as I cut down through the cupcake. Although they tasted great not one ended up looking like the original pin!”

Nothing like a good food fail to ruin your day:


… But there’s always another pin waiting, and if and when that one fails, be sure to take a photo and send it to us!

Warped Christmas Wreath Fail

EPF reader Brittany sent us the following fail. Thanks, Brittany!

The original pin – make a Christmas wreath for your door with ornaments:

And the Epic Pinterest Fail:

christmas-ornament-wreath-fail epic pinterest fail


Says Brittany: “I found this project on pinterest last Christmas, picked up some ornaments at the after Christmas sales and have been waiting all year to make it. It turned out to be super easy and I was really impressed with myself, even bragging about how the project took under a half hour. I had to knock it off with the bragging after the finished product lasted less time then it took to make it. Note to self: When doing crafts of this nature use plastic as opposed to glass.”

We feel your pain, Brittany! Much like heat, poor planning, and other elements can lead to an Epic Pinterest Fail, you’ve found another one — gravity. This pug puppy found out the same thing:

Says Natalie: “I was WAY too excited to show off my baking skills to my coworkers at a Halloween potluck. So I picked this gem from Pinterest and went for it. Did I have parchment paper, like the recipe asked? Nope. Weirdly-shaped baking sheet? Nah. So I made this goobery mess.”

Sexy (but Stupid) Halloween Costumes

This message brought to you by the EPF Soapbox.

It’s Halloween. Time for pumpkin carving, kids trick-or-treating in cute costumes, and … chicks walking around in slutty outfits? Why yes, nothing says “festival of the dead” quite like dressing up like a sexy kitten.

But our real issue isn’t the skin-baring outfits. Flaunt it if you got it, honey. Our issue is with the women who, instead of going for full-on sex like a Playboy bunny or a French maid, instead opt for a “creative” excuse to bare all. It leaves us confused. Just WTH is sexy about hot sauce, Sesame Street, or corn? CORN?!?

“Hot” and “Fire” can be euphemisms for sexy. But “Mild”? We feel sorry for the girl who gets “mild.”
