    I once made a cake but forgot to add the oil. It was like a bit of squidgy tarmac

    Ummmmmmmmmm quite a few:
    - Attempted to make fudge and it didnt go well, ended up burning it :cry2: Looking back at it, I have no idea why I attempted it (I try to avoid using the hob :rofl:)
    - Once microwaved some porridge for my sister..........with the spoon still inside (it was one of those ones with like a plastic handle)
    Dw guys, I did make a new one for her

    The most stressful tho was when I made a chocolate and treacle cheesecake :hide:
    - The thing I thought would be hardest (melting the butter on the hob) turned out to be the easiest thing
    - THe whipping cream I had bought wouldnt whip............. I tried putting it in the fridge and freezer and like an hour later, it still wouldnt thicken
    - During this time, the melted chocolate had hardened :rolleyes: so I thought maybe if I put the runny whipping cream with the solid melted chocolate, it might balance each othere out and make it ok :yep:
    - That didnt happen and just had to chuck it away
    - The galaxy counters I used instead (they were gona be decoration) and in the end I just added the remaining whipping cream as it was
    - I had to freeze it for like a day before it resembled cheesecake :facepalm:
    - It tasted amazing in the end, but dont buy Asda whipping cream bc it will stress you out to the max
