What I Did: I wanted to make something neat for an Easter event that my boyfriend and I were invited to. These worked out GREAT! I used the wrong dough, the individually cut crescent roll dough, so it was a little difficult but ended up well. I also didn’t have the metal cones so had to make my own by cutting apart some foil pans. But I think that they worked out well – next time, I won’t paint them orange, my friends were a bit suspicious about eating non-natural food dye. I used avocado instead of mayonnaise in my egg salad and it was really good.

My Result:

Next Time I Will: Next time I would buy the correct sheet dough and not paint the carrots. Also, I would make my egg salad a bit chunkier because it leaked a but through the bread.

What I Did: The secret to making this lamp is : 1) use the right product and 2) be very, very, very careful when you remove the structure from the balloon. It took me 4 attempts to make this lamp. It is NOT as easy as it seems . The secret is to find the right product. After trying wallpaper adhesive, a home made glue based on plain flower and ordinary glue, I tried fabric hardener. Fabric hardener is like magic :) The doily’s became quite hard. After removing the balloon it was quite a quest to attach the lamp. But after some additional hours I succeeded and I am now the proud owner of this fabulous lamp!

My Result:

Next Time I Will: Don’t try ordinary glue, immediately go for the strong products! :)

What I Did: In search of a healthier diet I’m trying LCHF, these were supposed to be a substitute for bread, made with meringue, egg yolks and cream cheese. Psyllium husk was optional, so I left it out as I didn’t have any, perhaps that’s the key to not wasting 3 eggs and half a pack of cream cheese?

My Result:

Next Time I Will: Try adding psyllium husk, it was a bit thin…
