IF you give us enough notice, we can easily whip up a Victoria sponge or tray of brownies without a problem.
But the second you want anything fancier than that, we're out of the running – which is why we've increasingly left special occasion bakes to the professionals.
That said, one woman has been left fuming after outsourcing her mum's birthday cake to a local company – and let's just say, the final product didn't look ANYTHING like the inspiration photos.
In a viral video that's racked up over 513k views, the anonymous TikTok user explained how she wanted a chocolate cake with icing drizzling down the sides and topped with some extra treats.
She raged: "I ordered from a small cake business and this is what I sent. The cake was £25."
The first reference photo she sent had a mini bottle of Jack Daniels on the top while the second had chocolate bars welded to the side and was decorated with an edible teddy bear and marshmallows.

And for good measure, they'd finished off with some sprinkles, two edible flowers and a fake peony which had been shoved into the middle.
"I ordered this for my mums birthday," the customer wrote. "How am I meant to serve it."
Although there's no denying that the cake looks like nothing like the photos she sent over, viewers said the woman had no one to blame but herself.
"Get what you pay for," one replied.
"Yeah that's 25 quids worth I'd say," another added. "What you wanted would be at least 60."
A third wrote: "Looks like their kid made it!"
Jumping to her defence, a fourth argued: "People are saying what did you expect for £25 but the thing is the business owner acted as if they could make that but they didn't."
