Okay on to my confession, er, make that confessions. There were two pins of mine on Pinterest that inspired me to do a crafting project and a baking first. Like everyone else that pinned this brownie/cupcake, I too jumped on the bandwagon and decided to make a batch for a Valentine's Day treat. Except my treats did not turn out like this delish beauty.

On Friday, I quickly looked up the recipe that Jen referred to on her blog and skimmed over the directions for this sweet concoction. Had I paid more attention my brownie/cupcake would not have turned out like this.
Whomp. Whomp. So they did not turn out like my inspiration but they were at least tasty and I was able to put my own spin on it which kinda sorta camouflaged my mistake. I made my own frosting and topped each one with a Sweethearts candy. See they don't look so bad now, right?
On to my second Pinterest project fail. I just love the idea of making wreaths out of cupcake liners so I thought of doing something a little different if you will. My kitchen window is pretty plain so I thought it would be quite darlin' if I hung individual heart-shaped foam cut outs decorated with cupcake liners. Cute idea, huh? Well I at least think so. This was my inspiration:

I am a natural born love-to-bake kinda girl so I thought this would be perfect decor for my kitchen. Well my first mistake was to start this craft project on a day I was not feeling so well and with very little time. After about half an hour I gave up and left my wannabe decor looking like this:
Ah well, they all aren't gems. I really like this idea I came up with so I will continue to work on this project later on this year. That way it will hopefully be ready by next year's Valentine's Day holiday season. There I have humbled myself by confessing some of my mistakes. 'Cause I gotta be honest with my friends and let them know I am not quite like Martha. I have a ways to go. :)
