Even the best cooks have dealt with kitchen disasters. From missing ingredients to burnt edges, there are so many things that can go wrong in the kitchen. Even so, some brave souls upload such kitchen fails onto YouTube for our enjoyment, and we had John from Preppy Kitchen watch some of these fails for himself. Buckle up, folks, because there's A LOT to learn.

First, he watched two young women attempt to make the viral Japanese soufflé pancakes. They're meant to be thick and fluffy and they require a lot of meticulous steps to get the look and texture just right. Preppy Kitchen suggests being extra gentle and careful when you fold meringue of any sort. Yes, fold it in—cue Moira Rose. When it comes to pancakes, he suggests sticking with the classic buttermilk because things like soufflé pancakes can be "so intense for breakfast." While the girls made pancakes that totally deflated and allegedly tasted like French toast, it was a valiant attempt.

Next, a YouTuber tried to make chocolate chip cookies using no measuring cups or tools at all. Like...none. As you probably guessed, the result was some very sad looking carb-y chocolate blobs, but they actually looked like they would taste pretty good. "They don't look inedible," John said. Which is totally a compliment!

From there, another video showed a twisted attempt at French macarons that did not involve thick enough egg whites but did involve melted wax paper in the oven. Finally, probably the most on-point of all of the fails, was a chocolate soufflé attempt that quickly became a lemon soufflé attempt after some burnt chocolate. These were the closest to the desired final product, but remember: Souflés are one of the hardest desserts to perfect.

Overall, Preppy Kitchen wasn't completely upset with the results, though he did have one major rule of thumb: "Always use a recipe if you don't know what you're doing." So, looks like you've come to the right place.
