Pin the Pin, Now Make the Make....

Today is the last day of term which means that the kids go to school and pretty much do nothing and then knock of at 2.30pm.  Every so often, provided they have not missed too many days due to illness, I let my kids (one at a time) have a "mental health" day with me.  Miss M hasn't missed any school and due to my study schedule this semester and work etc, she and I haven't got much girl time in. So she stayed home and we hung out together.

Bit of dancing in the kitchen, bit of this and that, then some "making". Well, actually baking. We made some red velvet cupcakes and then found these on Pinterest, loved them so we made them.

We Pinned the Pin and Made the Make!

 What do you think? Ha Ha! Big Fail! OMG! Icing cookies is not easy! We gave up trying for daisies as ours looked like fried eggs. Well you've gotta try these thing don't you?

This is what they supposed to look like, hmmm. I need to study up on this, there must be some tricks I don't know about!

I loved 'mental health' days with the kids...we also did the same thing when the kids were a school...very important for their well being!

I think your cookies look amazing, not to mention those red velvet cupcakes. yum yum. we have finally reached a stage at chez muggins where some baking can be done by someone other than me (the cleaning up less enthusiastically!) Hooray for days off xoxo
