28 Pinterest fails that will make you feel completely human

Cakes are hard.
  • Pinterest is the place we go to get ideas for things we will never actually do. We pin everything for a later date and then it just sits there forever. It's kind of sad, but every once in a while, a brave soul chances making Pinterest creations a reality, and hilarity most often ensues. Take a look:
