A cake is the way to someone's heart. It doesn't matter if it's your birthday, cake is always the answer! Ever received an apology cake? Well, these people have, and they're probably the most amusing thing we've seen all week. We need to know the backstory!
I 'ham' sorry

The person who received this cake must have been pretty cut up about the person who ate all the ham. I guess you could call them a little piggy (too lame?). To be fair, they should have bought some new ham instead of a cake.

Someone was HANGRY! The reason to kick a lunchbox is unknown and being run over by a car is rather dramatic. I'm guessing even a cake couldn't fix this dilemma, but hey, at least they drew a heart and sad face!

The fact that the writing is in red still hints to me that the person is still being slightly psycho and is foreshadowing death. However, sprinkles are supposed to make everything better. Our Gookie Dough funfetti cake batter always does. Next time, choose a different colour for the icing? Just a little tip there.

'Sorry, you got stabbed.' Straight to the point. If the patient is still emotionally recovering then, this may have triggered some PTSD. Again, red shouldn't be everyone's go-to colour but let's hope the receiver took this lightly.
Right in the feels

Accidents happen and this person must have felt awful about what they did. The elbowing most-likely didn't hurt that much but this kind-hearted individual went out of their way to make a cake and even iced it themselves. The icing is worse than the action itself but we'll let it go.

What's the best way to make someone feel better about their diabetic diagnosis? Buy them a massive cake which is slathered in icing of course. We don't know if the sender was just being sarcastic or pure evil but we feel for the diabetic. Care to share?
Maybe we don't want an apology cake after all. We may be brutally savaged!
Cold days call for comfort eating. What's better than having a whole tub of Gookie Dough in your fridge? Turning them into waffles of course! Here's how to make the breakfast of your dreams.

You will need:
(For the waffle batter)
240g of all purpose flour
50g of granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon of salt
One tablespoon of baking powder
125ml of melted butter
125-200ml of whole milk
Two teaspoons of vanilla extract
(For the cookie dough)
One monster tub of Gookie Dough in a flavour of your choice
To make the waffle batter, simply add the flour, sugar, salt and baking soda in a large bowl and stir thoroughly to mix. Once combined, set aside.
Next, in a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, melted butter and vanilla. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and whisk together to combine it all.
Now it's time for the Gookie Dough. Take your dough out of the fridge and spoon little dollops of Gookie Dough into the waffle batter. Each time you add some, stir gently (so the chunks don't separate too much). All that's left is to preheat the waffle iron and get cooking!
Cook the waffles in batches in the preheated waffle iron, then as they come out of the iron, place them on a cooling rack and then top with extra cookie dough, ice cream, chocolate and anything else sweet that you're craving! *Recipe adapted from Laura In The Kitchen*
Simple and delicious way to brighten your morning even if the sun isn't shining. After all, food is the way to a girls heart no matter what!
Everyone has that one person they know who eats way too fast that it seems inhumane. One moment they'll have a roast dinner in front of them, and the next time you look, they've demolished the meal while you've only eaten one carrot. It's insane. Here are struggles you'll only understand if you are a fast eater.

When you finish your meal before everyone else, so you're just sat at the table with an empty plate, trying not to watch everyone else eat like snails. The frustration is real and awkward.
When you decide to eat with a group of people, and you get a sharing platter. You need to ensure you don't inhale everything before others have a chance to try. Splitting nachos or slices of garlic bread seems impossible, especially when people talk for half an hour between bites.
Burning your mouth is a daily occurrence because you immediately eat food as soon as it comes out of the oven, not giving a care in the world. Then when the food is scalding hot, you play a game of 'do I spit it out, do I cry or do I play hot potato'.
Following on smoothly from the burning scenario. When you do burn your tongue from the scalding food, you then make your tastebuds die, and you basically can't taste for the next few days. The struggle is real.
When eating around someone you don't know well, you have to make an effort to pace yourself, so you don't let them see what kind of monster you look like when you eat and that you're capable of eating anything and everything!
When cooking for yourself, you hate preparing and waiting for it to cook. You may take an hour to make the meal but to eat, it takes 3. This is why we buy Gookie Dough in monster tubs, so it takes us slightly longer!
When you're asking yourself whether you're still hungry or if your body hasn't yet processed the food you've quite literally downed.
So, there it is. Fast eaters need a medal for the challenges they face in life. Share this with a friend that is like sonic when it comes to food and let us know your struggles in the comments below!

You saw the inspiration on Instagram or that 'Birthday Goals' board on Pinterest. Seeing it and believing you can make it, you've got the ingredients, and you're ready to go! It can't be that hard, surely? Here are the baking disasters that are painful to look at.

Where do we start? What happened to the rainbow and why does it look like some disaster you'd see in a hospital? Happy Halloween, guys! No one was harmed during the process of making this crepe cake, just our eyes.

It's gone from super cute Easter treat to disastrous distressed birds which appear to be fighting for their life. Either that or they've applied too much blusher and become a little flustered. You can't deny that this isn't funny though, classic!

This baker forgot to add flour ingredients to their cookies. Everything was sifted and ready to go, but the dry ingredients weren't combined, so here's the result. Gorgeous gloopy mixture with rabbit droppings! This is why you choose Gookie Dough without fail.

The picture on the cake mix packet vs the result. Red velvet yet there is hardly any red? We're a little confused whether this person was supposed to put the icing mixture within the cake because to us, it doesn't seem to make sense. I guess certain people shouldn't bake!

Cooking takes time and patience, but this person apparently had a lot of time on his hands or got distracted and went to Mars and back before taking the pizza out. What a waste, we're very sad over this. However, at least there is an excuse for takeaway!
