What I Did: This was for a work party, we thought the beaver cupcakes would be hilarious.
And it was, hilariously awful. I changed some stuff around, mostly because it was a storm and I wanted to use things I had at home. When I completed the project, I took a look at the finished product and couldn’t help but laugh hysterically and immediately show everyone I know.

My Result:


Next Time I Will: I would use pre-made eyes. That was the creepiest part!

What I Did: My before cooking picture looked a lot like the Pinterest picture, however, my after cooking picture looked more like mustaches.

My Result:

Next Time I Will: I guess next time I would secure the bacon ends together with a toothpick. I think that might help. We had a good Valentine’s Day mustache laugh!

What I Did: Hello everyone, you may remember me from my Minion Fail from the fall. I am back and redeeming myself! I found this post as a temp fix until my wife and I can afford new counters since we just bought this bungalow. This fix cost me $9 and 2 hours of patience with a side of OCD.

My Result:


Next Time I Will: I would of added some better glue behind the window since its cold and peeling off a little after being there for a month. I may peel and redo in the spring to get a better stick.

What I Did: I was having a craving for some comfort food when I remembered we had recently purchased a giant back of mozzarella cheese sticks from Costco, and that I had pinned a really simple recipe for baked mozzarella sticks a few weeks earlier.

It started out really well. I snipped the cheese sticks in half, dipped them in milk, then rolled them in a bread crumb mix I made with plain bread crumbs, garlic salt, basil, and oregano. It smelled really good and I thought they was going to turn out to be delicious.

I followed the directions and baked them at 425f for 10 minutes. When I opened the oven, I saw that the coating hadn’t helped them hold their shapes at all and they were now one flat, ugly breaded cheese-sheet. They did taste good, though.

My Result:Result

Next Time I Will:  The only thing I can think of that I may have done wrong was use fat-free milk to roll the cheese in, since it’s thinner than whole milk and may not have worked as well to keep the coating together. Other than that, I followed the instructions completely.

What I Did: White chocolate does not melt as smoothly as chocolate and most of my sprinkles seemed to melt. Also, working with melted chocolate is messy!

My Result:Result
