Woman goes viral for accidentally explicit baked goods: ‘These are not looking too good’

A woman in Arizona has gone viral after her attempt at making a romantic dessert went hilariously wrong. 

Emma Plummer, a self-taught baker who runs her own business, Butter + Whisk, is used to making all sorts of desserts — from French macarons and cupcakes to children's birthday cakes.

But last weekend, that experience seemed to temporarily fail her. The 23-year-old was crafting heart-shaped macarons in preparation for Valentine's Day, but her designs ended up looking like... well, something else. 

"I tried to make hearts and they turned out like ballsacks," Plummer tweeted last Sunday, sharing a photo of her suggestive-looking treats. 

The post instantly went viral, and has now been retweeted more than 45,000 times. 

Plummer told Insider that the hilarious mistake came from simple inexperience. She'd never made heart-shaped macarons before, so she just decided to form the treats around a template. Plummer added that she immediately noticed it wasn't going well. 

"I was like, 'Oh man, these are not looking too good, I don't know what I'm doing,'" she said.

But at first, Plummer said the desserts just looked like deformed hearts. It wasn't until she put them in the oven that they started to change into different.  

"They were very pink before I baked them," she said. "But as I baked them they kind of darkened a little bit, and turned into that fleshy color. When I took them out and turned the pan I was like, 'Oh no, they look just like ballsacks.'"

Plummer's other treats look far more appetizing though. She's shared dozens of different recipes on her company's Instagram page, including Christmas-themed macarons and even Earl Grey tea-flavored ones.

The 23-year-old later showed the mishap to her husband, who she said was "laughing hysterically." It wasn't until she checked Twitter the following day though, that she realized what a sensation she'd become. Now, the baker says she has strangers asking her for her "ballsack" recipe.

"I have a lot of people that said they wished they had them for their husbands' vasectomies!" she told Insider. 

As for the original macarons, Plummer told Insider they're all gone. She and her friends apparently ate them earlier this week while watching the season premiere of "The Bachelor." She added that she's not embarrassed by the mistake, and instead just happy it entertained so many people. 

"I just think it's funny, and people like to laugh," she said. "Life isn't always perfect and peachy, and having a laugh and something light-hearted is awesome."
