Okay, so we have covered COVID-19 lockdown baking fails, but this one featuring a TV presenter who turned her idol into a horror cake deserves a special mention.
New Zealand presenter Laura Daniel decided to get in on the iso-baking craze, but rather than attempting a basic banana bread like everyone else (no that banana bread is always without difficulty), Daniel decided to aim high and sculpture a cake version of New Zealand Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern.
You can tell that it’s supposed to be the popular leader based solely on the fact her recent biography, “The Story Behind An Extraordinary Leader,” is propped up behind the monstrosity, but otherwise, well, the picture really speaks for itself.
A blob of cake on a plate is covered with runny, yet lumpy white icing, with goggly blue eyes protruding, slick red lips, and shiny, black (liquorice?) strap hair. Perhaps most unsettling though, is the human looking teeth that could definitely possibly be someone’s dentures.
Daniel uploaded a photo of the spectacular failure to her Instagram account, where she apologised to Ardern.
“They say don’t bake your heroes. But I wanted to try anyway,” she wrote in the caption on the post.
