Okay, so I call this a craft fail because it isn’t really baking as much as it is decorating. It was a horrible attempt too… So here goes…
My daughters birthday party is going to be on March 27th (yes I am planning early) and the theme is going to be Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. So, after searching the internet far and wide for cute pictures I found these and decided that they would be a must have for the party. Since my MIL works at a candy store I figured she could be of great guidance, but wanted to try them on my own.
Now, lets just say I am REALLY glad I am starting early, because mine turned out terrible, I didn’t even get to the cute red sprinkles and jelly bean part (you will see why). Let me just list out the things that went wrong so that you can get an idea of what it looked like.
So with all this said, it was really pointless to continue and waste the expensive chocolate I bought, and I decided to just wait until I could change types of chocolate to the normal almond bark you can buy at the store for pretty cheep. As a side note, incase any bakers out there are thinking… maybe she didn’t use a double boiler, sadly I did… and it still turned out like this. Oh well, like the title says… Take 1! I will hopefully be attempting Take 2 this weekend and look forward to mastering making Mickey apples. But until then here are pictures from the Mickey Apple Attempt – Take 1.
See in the back ground in row 2 where the ear has sagged down to the rear?
Closer up to see the pooling and sagging of the ears.
Believe it or not this was the best one. But it was the sans caramel. So the ears are good, they didn’t move; however, the chocolate has that ice breaking effect that just isn’t right.
To keep up with me and see if I have mastered or failed again, hop on over to my and take a look at my blog. Hope everyone enjoyed my major craft fail and look forward to sharing more as I screw up try to master other things (be on the look out for clothing fails as I am a beginning sewing student for clothing from scratch).
