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.

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!

What I Did: I was going for a cute but spooky cake for our annual Halloween party. I had this cute bear mold already. How hard could it be to frost some bandages onto it?

My Result:

Next Time I Will: There will be no next time. The only way this cake can be saved is to be eaten. Quickly. A la mode.
