What I Did: I wanted to make a mold of my lil ones hands and feet (puppy too). I thought this was a good project because I didn’t need to run to the craft store to get any of the materials needed, I already had everything in my pantry.  I followed the directions to a T! The outcome was a flaky mess :(

My Result:

Next Time I Will: I don’t think I would try this one again. I’m going to try a different mold that actually calls for glue. You never know though…I might be submitting that one on Pinterest Fail too.

What I Did: These cookies looked amazing, and the recipe looked simple enough. So I gather all of my supplies and get going. This recipe involves forming the cookie dough differently than most, so I was excited about it. Just one teeny little mis-step, however…

I mis-read the recipe and put in twice as much butter as was called for! How the heck did I do that?! Boo!

For the record, I tried again with the right amount of butter and while they turned out looking kinda like melty mutant peeps, they tasted great!

My Result:

Next Time I Will: Oh boy. Next time I will not channel my inner Paula Deen! I will keep trying this cookie-forming method she mentions, as it is intriguing. Maybe my next batch I will not form like marshmallows, but more egg-shaped. Hmm.

What I Did: I tried this dish first in Hawaii … My Auntie Lou said it was real easy to make. You just put condensed milk in between the layers of jello … WRONG … FAIL

My Result:

What I Did: I wanted to make caramel apple slices for my daughter’s halloween themed birthday party. Obviously that didn’t work out.

My Result: pinterest fail caramel apple slices result

Next Time I Will: Next time I would anchor the apples so they didn’t tip because they ALL tipped in the fridge. Maybe us a muffin tin?
