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.

My Result:

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.

User Error: Sugar Cookie Fingers

What I Did: I thought that this would be an easy way to make a spooky dessert. It said sugar cookie fingers, right? So I bought some pre-made sugar cookie dough at the store and painstakingly sculpted fingers and knuckles out of them. They were beautiful! And then I put them in the oven.. and they went downhill quickly. I put some sprinkles on them and served them anyway – with a good story!

My Result:

Next Time I Will: I would probably make the sugar cookie dough to their recipe – or maybe even try a shortbread that doesn’t spread as much.

What I Did: I wanted to make jelly worms for a Halloween party. I followed the instructions and was sure to give them enough time to set. It turns out the warm water used to release the “worms” from the straws kind of melts them.

My Result:

Next Time I Will: Larger straws may make a difference. I’m interested to see if this worked for someone!
