What I Did: Saw this on pinterest and thought it looked awesome. It didn’t come with a recipe so I used one off the internet. Hit a few snags but all in all it looked great no fail here. Not as professional looking as the original but still a great cake and it tasted awesome too. I’m not a beginner baker so I’m sure people who aren’t used to the kitchen may have some trouble.

My Result:result 

Next Time I Will: I used too much icing in the sponge cake and it cracked slightly but apart from that nothing.

What I Did: Well I love pancakes, I love cinnamon and icing, so I thought I could make this happen. there are so many links and recipes to similar pancakes all over the internet… but they were insanely hard to make. butter and cinnamon was dripping everywhere and I could not get it right! they still tasted really good but looked pretty bad :) We were laughing our heads of and talking about what a massive fail they were :)

My Result:

Next Time I Will:  I tried again one other time and made the cinnamon portion thicker, and it helped a bit, but there is a technique to this that I just can’t seem to nail down ;)

What I Did: My son loves to do arts and crafts! I thought that this would be great because I had an extra canvas from a pervious craft. We bought the letters and started putting the letters where we wanted them. He loves the “You are my Sunshine” song so that is what we decided to do. Instead of finger painting we used brushes and he went to town mixing colors and being creative. We finished and let it dry over night. The next day we started taking off the letters and found that the paint went under the stickers a little. Even with little mishap I think it turned out ok…..

My Result:

Next Time I Will: Not exactly sure what we could do next time to stop the paint from going under the stickers….
