Snowman Shooters and Some Advice



I won't make you wait for the advice.....
you may have heard it before.
But today it bears a different meaning.


Help Me!

DON'T EAT YELLOW SNOW

Let me elaborate. 
 
Many of you are on Pinterest, right?
Me too. 

I dink around on there and see all these GREAT,
CREATIVE ideas and think to myself..
SELF...YOU CAN DO THAT BETTER, NEATER
FASTER, STRONGER, CUTER!

Self often dupes oneself. 

Have you ever tried to recreate something
you have seen only for it to turn out like this:


Via Pinterest


Well, these little snowman shooters
had such potential.......

Click on this link for source of photo and recipe!

But as you can see, my "snow" looks yellow and
somehow Mr Snowman shooter has become
a warped melted snowman mutant chic. 

I am having an identity crisis here!


So then I turned to the cake batter ice cream that
has like 6 inches of ice on it and after I chisel that off
I think I can mask the ugly with some decorative
snowflake sprinkles....

Rainbow sprinkles and Snowflake sprinkles can't take the UGLY out of UGLY.


Nope...still fugly. 

So for all of you who have had high hopes
but ended up with fugly...this post is 
dedicated to YOUZZZZZ!

(Don't be surprised if you see a post Easter time titled, "Whimsical Spring Chick Ice Cream Shooter"...just act surprised and amazed...OK?) 

Sharing sage advice with these great parties you can find links at HERE!!!!!

I think that we have all felt the pain of pintrest failed creation! Someone told me pintrest was creators porn... they forgot to mention that it can also be very disapoint lol!

This has happened to me more times than I like to recall. However I thought your last pass looked great. Very funny post.

LOL! As long as it tastes it good doesn't matter what it looks like.

I was already thinking this had a "Peeps" look about it. And don't worry, I'll act surprised when I see it again! ;)

Lorraine said...

LOL, I feel your pain...

Kathryn Ross said...

Tooo funny, Trish! Yes, Pinterest has lots of ideas. I pin them and then say to myself - yeah . . . right . . . like I could really do that . . .

Worth a try in 2012, what do you think?
Joy!

Dorothy @ Crazy for Crust said...

You are so funny! I feel that way every time I make something I see in a cookbook or online. :)

Moogie said...

Hi-larious -- I've had soooo many blog fails of my own. And then the Island of Misfit toys song plays in my head. Yellow snowman needs to be your profile pic--he makes me smile ;0)

Lisa said...

Well my dear, yesterday I made some low sugar gluten free sugar cookies that even the dog refused...and she will eat dirty tissues. I had to laugh when you said you would use this for Easter because that was the first thought I had! I am sure they TASTE good, and that is really all that matters!

Hi Trish, love the snowmen, but the chick is pretty dang cute! Haven't stopped by for awhile, always a treat!

Barbara said...

Oh my...too cute and too honest...makes for a great post!!!I think it is adorable no matter what! Looking forward to seeing the Easter Post!

Paula said...

Well....beauty is in the eye of the beholder and I'm betting the shooter still tasted good :) Personally, I think it is cute.

SweetSugarBelle said...

HAHAHAHAHAHAH! I lol-ed! Hilarious! This happens to me ALL THE TIME. And I bet the yellow snow tasted alright, LOL!

This post was a real hoot! I have more main course mishaps than dessert ones. Like the other day I flipped a half baked pan of cornbread all over the inside of my oven - don't ask.

Erin said...

This is awesome! Good to know I'm not the only one who sometimes makes something and thinks "what the???" the picture looked way better! Ha! Love it, tho!

Michele Alger said...

I'm so glad to see someone as talented as you have something like the monster cupcakes turn out that way too! SO FUNNY! I actually LOVE the spring chic...I think the best projects and foods come from "accidents". WAY TO MISTAKE!! I'm pinning it on my Easter board ;)

Naturally Me Creations said...

LOL to the monster cupcake / cookies goodies.... :D And i can laugh about it 'cause i've also had my share of failed crafty attempts.... ;)

Naturally Me Creations said...

Oh yes, and i think your yellow snowman is just as good as the ones you tried to "copy" (neater even) :)
