What I Did: Uh, I have no idea what happened. I blame the Cosmos. We changed nothing. We chose it because it looked fun and my son could use a dose of calm.

My Result:

Next Time I Will:┬áNext time, I would recognize the potential this “time out bottle” has to double as a zombie torso. But we won’t be trying it again.

What I Did: I did not have enough time (or skills) to pull this off! I didn’t have the peanut butter cups so I substituted with chocolate covered strawberries. The chocolate dried way too quickly for me, so when it came to putting the candy corns in, a lot of the chocolate cracked off. Also, you can’t just slot the candy corns into the middle of the oreos as all recipes seem to suggest! It makes them crack in half. And I had no icing so my turkeys ended up without eyes which made them look even weirder.

My Result:

Next Time I Will: Follow the recipe and have the exact things that you need!

What I Did: I love to read, so why wouldn’t my child? And what better theme for her baby photos than books and adorably dorky glasses? Unless your child dislikes both books and glasses. FAIL.

My Result:

Next Time I Will: I would have done the shoot when my child was a newborn and acted more like a houseplant. At four months, she’s much less cooperative.

What I Did: A friend and I set out to conquer some pins. Especially ones that had failed. Neither of us have much experience in baking, but we knew we could do sugar cookies. We didn’t change anything other than we put the dough in the freezer for an hour rather than the fridge.

My Result:

Next Time I Will: We would try and find a way to make the cookies more round and have more layers, but we consider this a win!
