Pinterest and baker blogs are littered with photos of festive foods that are sure to put any Grinch into the holiday spirit.
But it turns out, recreating some of these beautiful dishes is much easier said than done. Food bloggers may have all day to whip up this sumptuous looking goodies but can the average home cook really make that cool-looking Christmas cookie?
From melting cookie snowmen to scary looking Santa sweets, these are some of the most horrific holiday food fails online.
Something's off with Santa's reindeer.
LOL! Food craft FAIL – as usual – just can NOT do the cooking thing. Merry Christmas anyhow. pic.twitter.com/1403vhwfyz

Those cute little strawberry Santas seemed easy enough.

A festive candy tray gone wrong. At least the mints are still edible.
Let's face it, a giant turkey is pretty much one of the most difficult foods to master.

Those holiday cupcake kits aren't as easy as they seem.
If you've made a mess of your gingerbread house, don't worry-- you're not alone.
At least this crafter had a clever cover up strategy.
