What I Did: The frosting link provided in the recipe made an ultra greasy frosting that was unusable. So, instead we decided to forego the frosting all together and simply whip up a glaze to use as glue and decorate as planned. They are very yummy cupcakes that are decorated in a scarier than intended manner.

My Result:

Next Time I Will: Next time around, I would use my own butter-cream frosting recipe that actually works and then decorate as planned.

What I Did: I used parts of multiple recipes and did not measure my ingredients. The yolk mixture came out too thin and the boiled eggs that I cut in a zig-zag pattern kept tearing apart. They looked some what like a chick before the car ride over to the event :/

My Result:

Next Time I Will:  Measure my ingredients. Boil the eggs a few days earlier.

Hardly Sweetened

Posted under Blog

Hey Reapers! It’s Jenna, the creator of Pinterest Fail. This diversion from usual Pinterest Fail content is brought to you by my newest venture – Hardly Sweetened.

Hardly Sweetened. Low-sugar cocktails for drinkers who are In It For The Taste.

Hardly Sweetened

 

Click over to find a site devoted to low-sugar cocktails that are all about exploring flavors other than SWEEEEEET, as well as how-to posts explaining cocktail terms, creating homemade mixers, and building up the skills necessary to create cocktails at home. And I’ll keep my fingers crossed that the recipes featured on the site never end up being submitted to Pinterest Fail!

Have a cocktail recipe you love that’s low in sugar? Maybe something savory made with bacon? (I love bacon.) Use the contact form on the site to submit a recipe of your own and it could end up being featured on the site!

Thanks for your support and regular Fail posts should resume shortly. Happy Pinning, Winning, and Failing! – J
