I made BREAD people...by hand.
This made me think that I was like the Muslim Martha. I made bread, I could do anything. I expanded my Muslim Martha experience and made .... (wait for it) ... home-made chicken noodle soup...& buns.
|This is what I tried to make|
So, I went shopping. I bought little white chocolate blob things for the eyes (already had the chocolate chips for the pupils) -- I bought some blue food coloring, some icing (yes, pre-made) and some mini chocolate chips (they were actually snack pack ones)
Today I went to work making them.
I mixed up my packaged cake mix and plopped it into cupcake tins. While they cooked, I made the eyes...then I mixed together the blue icing into the pre-made tin of cake frosting. Here came problem #1. In order to get the deep blue of Cookie Monster, I had to put in a lot of food coloring -- this, in turn, watered down the icing.
When the cupcakes were cooked and cooled, I iced. I'm not all that fancy and didn't bother with the Icing bag thing. I just splattered in on and thought "it's supposed to look messy." Here's the problem though -- the icing was too thin to stay "messy" and it smoothed itself out. It didn't do it immediately, though...it was a sneak attack thing. It waited until the eyes and mouth were in...and then everything began to slowly slide off the cupcake.
I ended up with this.
|Even the cupcake is sad|
Yikes. I'm no Martha. At least they taste good (but fair warning, they'll make your teeth turn blue)
