    Pinterest Fails

    Advertisements
    I've been in a crafty mood recently and made my first wreath I was a little over zealous and thought I might do a trial run for Levi's smash cake for his birthday. The end result wasn't pretty




    Needless to say, I'll most likely find a cake lady.

    Anyone else have some epic pinterest fails?

    Looks like you need more powdered sugar or meringue powder in your icing.

    Not really a fail, because I really liked this recipe. DH, however, did not.

    And this did not turn out as described, but still tasted really good

    This doesn't work
    New Life For Old Cookie Sheets . . . Again.

    Neither does this

    ooooo I was hoping someone would start one of these threads!

    The Topsy Turvy Planter looks super cute until the rain comes and makes all the dirt splash out of the pots exposing all the roots. Through trial and error (and after a lot of wasted soil) I found a way to get it to work.

    And this really isn't a fail but found a pin that said if you plant lemon seeds in a pot then it'll make your house smell like lemons. I think they meant lemon grass because these sprouts have no smell. Now I think I'm going to have 20 lemon trees!

    Food pins hardly ever work for me. I've been burned by so many bad Pinterest recipes I usually just stick to popular sites like Food Network or Taste of Home. I never have any problems with them.

    Do you know if each sprout should have it's own pot? In the pin they look so crowded that i doubt they'd grow much bigger

    The cake wasn't warm! I let it sit forever to make sure A couple people have suggested either the house was too warm or my hand melted the frosting. I had to use a vegan recipe so maybe that's contributing? And that I've never been able to make awesome frosting. Ever.

    While I'm at it, I thank you for your confidence in me Whit, but I did actually mess the cake up too. I've never heard of a cake requiring only egg whites so I used 3 whole eggs and had to call my mom to make sure I wasn't going to come out with a cake omelet. Baking is for the birds.
