Christmas Cake Decorating Fails
Christmas cake decorating is a tricky business. It takes talent, a keen eye for detail and a hefty dollop of patience.

Unfortunately (or fortunately, for us) these bakers don't possess any of those key skills.

Our favourite baking site (sorry, Bake Off), has rounded up some quality festive fails, celebrating all the brilliantly bad cakes and bakes made for the Christmas season.

We're talking wonky wordings, several epic spelling mistakes (Marry Cristmas) and all round icing incidents – all served up with a dusting of festive spirit (and sketchy sugar work).

The bakers behind these festive fails probably had the best intentions for their cakes, it's just a shame they didn't have a dictionary to hand when they started the piping...

Happy Christmas!
