The mum has left hundreds of parents in hysterics by sharing her failed attempt at a popular breakfast trend.
Madison took inspiration from a cookbook and tried to impress her Bluey-obsessed kids by making toast in the shape of Bingo – Bluey’s younger sister.
But the end result is not as planned as Bingo’s face looks shocked rather than cute and lovable.
Our “attempt” at bingo toast, Madison wrote and shared the photos with the Bluey Mums Facebook group to compare what the toast should have looked like.
The children’s animation about blue-eyed puppy Bluey and her adventures has become a global phenomenon since it launched in 2018.
Anticipation: Mom Madison wanted to make a “bingo toast” (pictured) for her kids who are obsessed with the ABC Bluey cartoon
Fact: But the end result was not as planned as Bingo’s face looks shocked rather than cute and lovable
The main difference between the inspiration and Madison’s version is the size of the blueberries, which were used for Bingo’s eyes and nose.
The blueberry chosen was very small, which made the character appear to have wide eyes and a surprised look on her face.
The recipe itself is very simple and requires just a few ingredients — including bread, bananas, berries, and peanut butter.
The breakfast idea came from a $12 Amazon book called “Bluey and Bingo’s Fancy Restaurant Cookbook.”
How to make “Toast Bingo”
- Two slices of toast
- 1 slice of white bread
- 3 blueberries
- 1 banana
- Peanut butter, jam or chocolate spread
Cut the bananas into slices
Triangular toast cutouts for Bingo’s ears
Add your chosen butter flavoring along the edges
Place two slices of banana on Bingo’s ears
Stack the rest of the bananas to form Bingo’s eyes, eyebrows, and snout. Then grapes or blueberries are added to remove her eyes and nose
Many parents were left in stitches after seeing Madison’s attempt.
Someone joked, “Bingo has seen things, they look better than the picture I’m going to say!”
A third wrote, “It’s a thousand percent better than anything I can make, but Bingo also sounds like a mod (sic).”
Dozens of other moms have also tried making toast bingo themselves, with mixed results.
In one photo, Bingo looks more like a red fox than a blue heeled dog, and in another she has red jelly eyes.

Despite their best efforts, other mothers admitted they struggled, too. But the end results were funny
Despite their best efforts, other mothers admitted they struggled, too. But apart from their kids they still enjoyed bingo toast.
I don’t have any skills to do these things! But my daughter loved it and ate all the bread (she had been refusing bread for a while), one mom wrote.
Another said, “My daughter loved it though and that’s all that mattered.”
It comes after a young woman shared pictures of her ‘cake fail’ after trying to recreate a Bluey birthday cake made by professional baker Tegan ‘Tigga’ Maccormack.
The dessert was meant to be easy to make, involving slicing up a pre-made Woolworths mud cake and then adding the icing on top.
Lucy, from Melbourne, decided to try it herself after seeing the video on TikTok, but found the implementation more difficult than first thought and was disappointed with the outcome.
The original design looked cool and was made with icing to match the character’s exact color, along with marshmallow eyes and wafer ears.
But Lucy’s version looked nothing like the inspiration and instead looked decadent with a square wafer mouth and melted ice cream all over it.

Sharing a photo of the hilarious end result on Facebook, Lucy wrote: “Enjoy this sheer abomination – it looked easy on TikTok.”
It is also possible that the wooden skewers seen sticking out of the head were intended to hold the ears in place.
The end result left hundreds on Facebook hysterical but some said their child would ‘love’ this cake, despite its shape.
“This is the honesty I needed in my life,” one woman wrote, and another said, “It’s so cute even though it’s nothing like the picture.”
The stick did it for me. 10/10 for the effort though! A third wrote.
“I just showed my seven-year-old, ‘Keep trying!'” Then he said to me, “But it looks so bad, maybe she should eat it all.” Another added.
Another person said: “Oh my gosh, I honestly love it! It made me smile, thank you for sharing.”
