      Mine actually wasn't a fail. Last Christmas I made an awesome tree shaped cake that came out wonderfully. I was so proud that it hadn't fallen apart or the frosting wasn't pretty. I got one picture before we put it in the oven to keep our pets out of it. Then my brother turned on the oven to make dinner and melted all the frosting off. Needless to say I cried and made a batch of cupcakes to replace it

    I know that you have good intentions but when you say little boy's birthday cake and then you make a construction site cake that is sexist and also what if a little girl wanted that cake what if a non-binary child wanted that cake what if an age and a child wanted that cake I know you're not trying to exclude these people but maybe you could just try a little kids cake or a birthday cake or a cake even you know but saying a little boy's birthday cake and then creating a construction site cakeIt's just stereotypical please try and be more gender inclusive and excepting and less sexist but by all means you're really good at making

    Something I did with brownies I mucked up once might work for cake as well, which is to make a sort of bread pudding situation by crumbling it up in a baking dish, pouring a custard over it and baking it. It can be a little sweet so so light on the sugar in the custard, but at least the brownie version tastes good and looks like you made it that way on purpose.
