What I Did: Tried to make these the night before a class party. Apparently, cotton candy melts when sealed in a moisture-ridden Tupperware container.

My Result:

Next Time I Will: Put the cotton candy on *right* before serving.

What I Did: I wanted a healthy on-the-go pregnancy snack alternative, and thought this just might be the thing. I followed the directions exactly, and ended up with a sticky mango mess (which I ate anyway).

What I Did: We had some friends over for a 4th of July party, and I thought it would be AWESOME to attempt to write out USA with sparklers like I had seen so beautifully done on Pinterest. To say it was a fail would be an understatement. U2O? Wtf.

Blog Post Detailing The Experience: http://sarah-travelinglight.blogspot.com/2013/07/proud-to-be-from-u2o.html

My Result:

Next Time I Will:  I would need to get all my friends on board with writing the letters backwards. Ha! I also would need to try again when it’s not so light. It sort of lost the appeal when you can see my blurry friends.

What I Did: My grandpa was born on the Fourth of July, so every year we have his party and our Fourth of July celebration together. This year my cousin and I decided to get crafty and we found this ADORABLE cake that didn’t look too hard to make. Everything was ok until we went to put it together. That’s when we ran into some issues.

My Result:

Next Time I Will: Don’t use white cake mix, use something that’s more dense and make the layers thinner. Also have more support in the cake.
