What I Did: How adorable are these cookies? And gee, the instructions make them seem so easy to make. In only a few short minutes I, too, can have these wonderful Oreo Cookie turkey decorations and be a hero at our Thanksgiving feast.

My Result:

Next Time I Will:  Holy crap. Seriously? These couldn’t have been more impossible to make. As I posted on Facebook:

Let me just say BULL CRAP to whomever made those…no way in HELL did they use a toothpick to make the eyes and pupils and waddle and feet. NO WAY….mine looked more like a Turkey that was in the recent tornado….

I don’t think the author of this recipe meant to be a sadist, and I doubt it should have taken 75 minutes to make five of these. I also doubt my hair should be thinner and more gray as a result of this. Don’t let ANY freaking Martha Stewart type tell you how “EASY” these damn things are either. And don’t bother to buy frosting markers because THEY DO NOT FRIGGIN WORK. You will have to be creative and inventive all on your own. And consider a pair of tweezers and readers if not a magnifying glass and every light in the room on to even have a chance at making these. Happy (bad word here) Thanksgiving.

What I Did: So, I have naturally curly hair. But when I saw how to make the heatless waves via Pinterest, I thought, why not try it. Besides, the girl in the pictures had flawless waves from the technique- that should happen to me, right? Wrong. I woke up with the twists still perfectly intact, which made me excited about the end result. Well, when I unpinned them, and desperately tried to claw my way through the Narnia forest of hair, I was left with the most unmanageable [hairdo] that you could possibly imagine. I mean seriously. My hair has never looked this horrible, EVER. With the force of 50 bobby pins, I was finally able to make a bun that was presentable enough for work. Holy crap. Never again. I angered the beast that is my hair.

My Result:

Next Time I Will:  This project only has hope on people with soft, super straight hair. I would absolutely never attempt this again.

What I Did: My friend and I had been wanting to make the 3D hearts so we could hang them on our walls at college. They ended up looking more like 2D butts. We suck.

My Result:

Next Time I Will:  Draw less ugly hearts, make them look less butt-like. This project is a lost cause.

What I Did: I decided to make a “Shark Cake” for my Mom’s birthday. Her main hobby is Shark Fishing on the coast where we live. I found this awesome shark cake on pinterest, and said, “Easy Enough, I can do that!”

1st Fail
Mixing the icing with food coloring to create my own colors of icing sounded easy, My grey turned into seafoam of the actual shark

2nd Fail
Trying to shape the cake into an actual shark didn’t quite… work out. So I raided my pantry and found rice crispy treats and molded them into a shark, I then iced with my gorgeous seafoom/snot colored icing.

3rd Fail
The Teeth! By this point I just had to start laughing and have fun with it as it was a complete disaster. The more teeth the better, the more crooked the teeth were, perfect.

4th fail
My “Happy Birthday” writing slid on the brown “sand” and looks like “Happy BrithVdap”.

There are many more details, but I would say this was an overall major fail, and I have SO much respect for those who actually can bake!

My Result:

pinterest fail shark cake jaws nightmare hilarious birthday

Next Time I Will:  I wouldn’t change a thing about this cake. My mom loved my attempt, and it has been a great conversational piece and has gotten a lot of laughs from many different people. Totally worth the Fail :)
