What I Did: I thought it would be cool to bring to an office potluck. I figured it was just pretzels stuck into balls of cheese, so it should be easy to make a large batch. Instead, the cheese balls kept deforming in my hands when I tried to make the pumpkin lines with a toothpick. Plus, I only had short, thick pretzels on hand, which I thought would be fine for this test batch. After wrestling with just three of them, I realized that this was not going to work out, and just went with some baked sweet potatoes instead. :-)

Ho ho ho! Merry Christmas! Thank you for inspiring me to leave behind the Pinterest Stress by outsourcing the DIY (Do-It-Someone-Else, DISE, if you will).

What I Did: Multiple attempts to make this cute Santa Bread. Let’s just say this is the one that turned out the best of all of them. I think I’ve decided that the original pic on the website might be photo-shopped or something. [edited for content].

My Result:

Next Time I Will: Next time I would celebrate Hanukkah instead and make braided Challah bread.

What I Did: Well, I mostly followed the blog, but I only had gel to decorate with and that did not work very well as you can see and I tried a frosting writing pen that really didn’t work so I gave up in the end and we had melted snow cookies!

My Result:

Next Time I Will: possibly, but I’m not going to try…
