These Valentine's Day treats were made with love, but sometimes love just isn't enough.
Originally published February 2016. Updated January 2017.
These pinwheel cookies turned into pink cookie rings that look a lot like... well... I'll leave it to your imagination.
Nothing's worse than being betrayed by your one true love. Yes, I'm talking about you, bacon.
These are technically a FAIL, but the result still looks totally delicious to me.
I'm guessing this chef wasn't super excited about celebrating Valentine's Day this year.
Replace the sprinkles with kernels of corn, and you'll realize why these strawberries look familiar.
Sprinkles truly can hide a multitude of sins, but in this case even that was too much to hope for.
These are allegedly Rice Krispies Treats, but I think we can all agree that they're actually baked potatoes.
These bacon roses, which look more like pig snouts than flowers, seem like an unwise Valentine's gift.
This looks more like radioactive waste than a cake, but at least there's a ton of frosting to make it edible.
This heart-inside-a-cake trick never seems to work out, but at least you'll get points for trying.
Receiving this desperate bakery-decorated cake would be creepy enough for Halloween territory.
This cake, decorated with raw chopped beef and a few salmon fillets (I think?), probably shouldn't have left the bakery.
We all know what this cake wanted to say. And if you're going to take it this far, you might as well cross the line.
These cookies look more like a windshield after a run-in with roadkill than an elegant stained glass window.
These yogurt-covered strawberries unfortunately look like they were vomited onto a baking sheet.
I'm starting to think that using strawberries in your Valentine's Day baking may just be a bad idea.
I have a feeling this baker took "chocolate roses" to mean something else entirely...
The cupid behind these sweets melted the treats themselves instead of their paramour's heart.
These may still taste OK, but they look like a craft project covered in paste, not an elegant Valentine's Day treat.
The good news is you can still tell these are cupcakes! The bad news is... well, you can see for yourself.
Making chocolate is sometimes harder than it seems, but the result always tastes good.
Hey, as long as the frosting still tastes good, who are we to judge?
It's not hard to believe that these enchanting cupcakes are more difficult to make than they look.
No one wants to wake up to a broken heart, but these pancakes result in just that.
The tie-dyed icing on these cookies make them look more psychedelic than romantic.
When you're using cake tops and heart-shaped holes as decor and neither works, you're in trouble.
Red pepper hearts that hold an egg were supposed to be for human and dog, but I have a feeling Fido got it all.
According to the chef of these pancakes, these heart pancakes look like ovaries.
This breaks my heart... my achy breaky pancakey heart.
Honestly, if you're gifting someone bread, they'll be so happy they won't notice it's not heart-shaped.
True beauty is on the inside, luckily for this aspiring cake decorator.
These cookies are heart-shaped. And there's a "diamond" ring beneath them. And I'm Cher.
First they misspelled "valentine," then they made the hearts upside down. Better luck next year?
When you burn the cake pops, your Valentine's dreams will come crumbling down (in a chocolaty heap, that is).
If this popcorn mix manages to start any conversation, it'll probably be "what happened?"
At least the cookie's broken and not their actual heart!
It looks like this chocolate seized up faster than someone on the end of an unwanted valentine.
Give this to someone who's always really chipper on Valentine's Day — but don't use it for a proposal.
Your sweetie may still get breakfast in bed after this, but you'll have to do a quick run to the drive-thru first.
How do you show someone you really care? You use spell-check before icing the cake.
