What I Did: How adorable are these cookies? And gee, the instructions make them seem so easy to make. In only a few short minutes I, too, can have these wonderful Oreo Cookie turkey decorations and be a hero at our Thanksgiving feast.

My Result:

Next Time I Will:  Holy crap. Seriously? These couldn’t have been more impossible to make. As I posted on Facebook:

Let me just say BULL CRAP to whomever made those…no way in HELL did they use a toothpick to make the eyes and pupils and waddle and feet. NO WAY….mine looked more like a Turkey that was in the recent tornado….

I don’t think the author of this recipe meant to be a sadist, and I doubt it should have taken 75 minutes to make five of these. I also doubt my hair should be thinner and more gray as a result of this. Don’t let ANY freaking Martha Stewart type tell you how “EASY” these damn things are either. And don’t bother to buy frosting markers because THEY DO NOT FRIGGIN WORK. You will have to be creative and inventive all on your own. And consider a pair of tweezers and readers if not a magnifying glass and every light in the room on to even have a chance at making these. Happy (bad word here) Thanksgiving.

What I Did: I did not have enough time (or skills) to pull this off! I didn’t have the peanut butter cups so I substituted with chocolate covered strawberries. The chocolate dried way too quickly for me, so when it came to putting the candy corns in, a lot of the chocolate cracked off. Also, you can’t just slot the candy corns into the middle of the oreos as all recipes seem to suggest! It makes them crack in half. And I had no icing so my turkeys ended up without eyes which made them look even weirder.

My Result:

Next Time I Will: Follow the recipe and have the exact things that you need!

What I Did: My youngest daughter is obsessed with pumpkins. So, for her 2nd birthday, I thought..what would be better than a pumpkin shaped cake? Nothing, that’s what.

I followed the directions on the link, but alas….it was a failure.

My Result:

Next Time I Will: What would I do next time? Buy a cake from the store.
