    I thought this would be an amusing question to ask because we've all had at least one time in our lives where we've eaten something disgusting, burnt something, or dropped an entire plate of food on the floor.

    I will literally eat anything, which is fortunate because I have no cooking skills whatsoever. I think I am immune to the horrendous taste of my own cooking.

    Haha, I guess as long as you enjoy it then it doesn't matter so much. And toast is arguably a very subjective food item when it comes to 'toasty' levels. I barely toast mine at all but my parents think that I'm utterly bonkers for doing so.

    I was literally starving one day and when I got home my mum had made me a jacket potato for dinner. It looked perfect it had sooo much melted cheese across the top, loads of beans and a nice square of butter. I left it on the floor at the top of the stairs because I forgot my drink. My baby brother had just learnt how to walk a few steps at this point. When I went back up I saw that my brother had walked backwards and had ended up sitting on top of my jacket potato. Not cool.

    Are you vegan yourself then? Or was it made for someone who was vegan? I remember baking a vegan chocolate cake for my niece's christening party as my brother is vegan, but I forgot to actually bake two sponges as you have in a proper cake... so in the end it was only one sponge just sitting on a buffet table, looking very sad indeed.

    I made brownies and put them in the oven to cook, but when I went back to it 15 mins later I opened the oven door and a huge plume of smoke came out - I had turned on the grill instead of the oven :facepalm:the brownies were burnt black on the top and still mixture underneath

    Damn, that sounded delicious as well. It's worse when you've put the time and effort in to make something truly awesome and then it's denied you suddenly.

    i dont often eat dinner at dinner time and i decdied to cook dinner for myself along with the kids.
    cooked the kids dinner and turned the over off, forgetting about mine that was still in the oven.
    the next day after id done dinner, i wondered why the kitchen was smokey, turned out id left my already burnt dinner in there and it had just got even more burnt!

    i was in the childrens specialist hospital (they had a parents wing for kids who were in with serious problems) and i was cooknig a microwave meal one evening and rather then put it in for like 3 mins, i accidentially put it in for 30. came back to it being rock solid and black

    Oh damn, it had to be brownies as well! I swear I cooked chips in the oven once and I definitely set it to cook on 'fan oven,' but for some reason it decided to grill them instead. My oven is clearly possessed by a mischievous chip-hating spirit.

    When i was young i tried to cook eggs so i got up in the morning early and i tried to get an egg from the top of the fridge and my finger tips just touched it and manage to get it out of its holder then i didn't manage to grab the egg and it fell and went *sploot* on the floor and it crack and i was like

    OH NO.
    So basically i just went back to bed and just hid until my parents called me down to ask who did it and i was like
    It was me...

    Then they were like don't do it again and then i was grateful for my life lol

    Well, I suck at cooking but I am a very stubborn person. I was trying to make a surprise treat for my mum and I was adamant I could do it on my own. In the process of making Millionaire Shortbread I came across this thing called 'condensed milk'. I'd never heard of it so I just assumed it was like semi-skimmed/full fat so I used normal milk instead xD. What did I learn? Don't ever let me cook

    One time I was in the kitchen doing some cooking and then the ghost of a clown came at me with a knife. Then I woke up.

    You said you wanted a cooking nightmare right?
