What is your worst cooking disaster?

Well i have several but the worst one i think is when i decided to bake my son a birthday cake and he did get his cake but it ended up being the size of a cup-cake after i had to cut the black bits off LOL. It turns out the oven cooks from the bottom and i didn't realise this as we had just moved in and didn't use it much because it was summer and it gets very hot here, anyway that's my excuse. Does anyone else have any cooking disasters?
