party DIY gone wrong :/

 Earlier this summer, I made a some notes (...6 pages...) of what I wanted to do for T's party.  Part of that was making as much as I could!  I hand high hopes of completing every part of my list, however, time and skill didn't allow for that :)

The first project that didn't work out were the homemade teething biscuits for the party favor cups, found here.  I already had all of the ingredients, and thanks to a great tip from a reader on the site, I whipped out some pretty cute biscuits.

 I was covered in flour, everything was covered in flour, I was super excited to use my cookie cutters, and I just knew this was going to be fantastic.  My friends would sing my praises and ask for the recipe, and I would be the the Baby Food Pioneer Woman.
 Things seemed to be going well.  I was following the instructions, things were baking, and "buuuuuuuuuzzzzzz," the timer went off!!! 
They cooled, but then something didn't seem right.  They were soft.  Like chocolate chip cookies out of the oven soft.  And, that didn't seem right.  Weren't they supposed to be crispy?!  That's what I thought too.  So, I had a choice to make:
1. I could put in another batch, cook them longer, and see if they came out crispier (it was already 9:30 pm...I go to bed an hour later)
2. or, throw in the towel and buy some puffs...

Guess what I did :/  If I hadn't had a million other items on my to-do, I would have given it another try, but I had to just move forward, so I did!!! :)

If you try these at home and get them to work, please tell me what i need to do to make them work!  Thanks! :)


  1. Ughhh disappointing when things don't work out as you planned, but I would've done the same thing (if I had even tried homemade to being with haha).

  2. that would have been so fun to make your own!! Great idea, sorry it didnt work out but the puffs were a nice touch!

  3. Eh, you are so super crafty that this blip doesn't even count! Good effort, though. :)

  4. Ha ha. I always over plan and then have to cut scope at the end. Glad to know I'm not the only one who can't do it all. I love the invitations with your artistic touch...and I can't wait to see pictures of the cake!

  5. aww i hate when that happens. so i'm guessing you bought the puffs huh? lol. well...better luck next time!
