Christmas Cupcake Fail. Meh.



I made this "meh" cupcake (inspired by this ornament), trying to be sooo clever during the holiday season. But all I could find was capital fondant letters, so it ended up looking like a lame acronym. MEH. More Eating Ham. My Envious Hamster. Or some one's initials. Basically, I realized capslock made it lose it's mehness. So I never did anything with the cupcake except eat it before the kids got home. It was goooood. Funfetti cake mix and frosting! At least it wasn't a complete failure.



In the future, I promise not to hoard my project failures for so long. MEH :)

  2. Sharon, I feel your pain. I tried to post a potentially fabulous cupcake photo only last month, but our youngest beat me to it (the cupcake). Gave up and posted what I could.

  4. Haha! Every single project I do has failed attempts. That is what I'm doing, experimenting and testing so I can offer up instructions on how to get it right. I want my readers to be able to avoid the trial and error.

  14. I love the idea of sharing DIY fails. I don't know if your cupcake qualifies though. May not have had the desired emotional impact, but damn it looks tasty!

  15. Oh, I couldn’t agree more! I adore crafty blogs and find much inspiration in the creativity of those lovely women. But couldn’t they, at least once, show us a project gone awry? Just once? It would surely be a boost to my self-esteem.
