What I Did: We just used can frosting, did no specify what to use. Well the frosting was not the right consistency and was just melting, once we put the “bunny ears” on, it all went down hill…. literally.

My Result:

Next Time I Will: Next time I will use different frosting and use smaller ears.

What I Did: My son is having a friend over tomorrow for a play date. I excitedly told the other mom, OH, I will make them some Kool-Aid playdough! I am an experienced baker and the recipe seemed super simple. I followed it exactly. It was total sticky mush, something I needed 5 minutes to wash off my hands! No way am I letting my 2 year old near this! Where all the people praising it in the reviews lying? Lol, maybe :)

My Result:

Next Time I Will: The only possible explanation I can see is that I’m in Mexico. Drinks here are often much sweeter than in America. Maybe the Kool-Aid mixture has much more sugar, or some other ingredient that made things go wrong? Nothing I can do about it now, though!

What I Did: I thought this looked like a cute and easy Easter treat to make for the kids. This pin didn’t have any instructions but the pictures made it seem like it was easy enough. Well as you can see my version didn’t turn out. At least they were still delicious and just told the kids they were Easter bunny poop :)

My Result:

Next Time I Will: Maybe I should have waited for the marshmallow to cool off a bit or maybe used less butter.

What I Did: This project seemed pretty cool because sprite is good and gummy bears are cheap but we couldn’t find gummy bears so we settled for gummy worms.

My Result:

Next Time I Will: Freeze them longer than 3 hours, use gummy bears, and buy better popsicle holders.
