Oh the holidays. So many wonderful, festive things we can do!
Reader Rebecca saw this photo and thought, “what a festive plate for my holiday treats! I could hardly wait to serve my red velvet cheese balls on a perfectly coordinated red and white starlight mint platter. Surely my co-workers would admire my talent for creative baking.”
Off she went to the store…da-dee-dum.
They only had red and green starlight swirls and no sign of those pretty white centers.
Not a problem! Nothing would be dashing her holiday spirit.
When she got home, she unwrapped each individual mint. She put so much time and thoughtfulness into making a perfect 7×7″ square.
A square that would be such a delightful addition to the holiday party.
Into the oven they went.
Three minutes in: looking fabulous!
Five minutes in: They’re melting so nicely together!
Seven minutes in: Are they supposed to bubble like that on the sides?
Nine minutes in: Why is it lopping to one side like that?
One minute later…That doesn’t quite look like the platter in the original picture:
Guess who will have to find another platter for those red velvet cheese balls?
