I can’t believe I’m posting this in January, but better late than never.
One day right before I started baking Christmas cookies, my husband asked me to bake some brownie bites for work.
I don’t have pictures of the brownies in this post, but that day will be this year’s Christmas List of Unfortunate Events (and I’m adding my Christmas dessert pictures).
Oh, and for those of you don’t know– my baking mishaps have become a trend!
I was baking the brownie bites when one of my kids had a meltdown, so I went to talk to him.
I didn’t hear the timer go off, and by the time I realized it, the brownies were overdone!
So I decided to make a second batch.
I stopped to talk in the middle of prepping, and then couldn’t remember if I had added one of the ingredients.
So I had to start again.
The third time was the charm– except the oven decided to go up to 387 degrees for no reason, and I freaked out.
But at least they were fine.
Then I was trying to put red coloring in the frosting, but accidentally used maple extract instead.
Yes, I was stressed and the bottles looked similar.
And it wasn’t just one drop– I dumped a bunch in it.
So I had to start again with the frosting.
There’s a pattern here…
And then I needed some purple frosting.
I used really nice purple food coloring, but it didn’t work.
I tried red and blue together, but it didn’t work.
No matter what I did, it came out grayish blue.
I finally settled for white frosting with sprinkles!
So for those of you who ever have stressful baking episodes, I can relate.
See you for the next episode of My List of Unfortunate Baking Events!
Here are the rest of my cookies:
Oh, and one more thing, the Hot Cocoa station I set up:
Hope your holidays were great!
