Social media is full of food photos, but usually people are trying to put their best foot forward. A perfectly set table, a beautiful slice of cake, or a fall-inspired stew are common sights as we scroll through photos.

If you can never seem to snap the perfect food photo, take heart. These people have experienced the ultimate food fails – and you couldn’t do much worse.
