What I Did: The Halloween makeup that we thought would be quick, and easy and involves no need to buy a costume! the result of this failure led to a truly inspirational dress up of Frida Kahlo. All was not lost!

What I Did: I chose this project because it looked so simply to do, plus I love a sunny side egg with toast and hot sauce! It was also just Halloween so I still had cutesy Halloween-themed food and goodies in mind. I used hot sauce for the skeleton body as well both because I didn’t have yellow mustard on hand and I wanted to taste more hot sauce.

My Result:

Next Time I Will: Next time I will try an “extra large” egg and see if that will give me more room for drawing with the hot sauce! The opening on the bottle is already quite small so this project truly is much more difficult than it looks. Also, an extra small fry pan to help the egg keep its shape.

Next Time I Will: Decorative frostings are not my thing. I’m much more of an ‘order-it-from-a-bakery-and-con-someone-else-into-making-it’ type of person.
