Candy Cane Carnage

Slowly but surely, I will destroy every tasty thing in my kitchen in the name of photography – or for cupcake experiments.   These candy canes were crushed for a new cupcake I was trying to bake. 

Tragic story.  I slaved over this new recipe but neglected to do one very important thing – restrain my hair.  So, when my cupcake creations, complete with crushed candy cane topping arrived at Matt’s house tonight, and when Rick took a big bite and the longest strand of my my blonde hair was pulled slowly from his mouth, I was horrified.  Of course someone else saw the long hair and had a slight mental breakdown and had to spit out his cupcake into the trash.  I was crushed.  How could I allow my hair to end up in my culinary triumph?  Unacceptable. 

2010 is determined to defeat me.  I can’t wait to get into 2011 when my hair avoids cake batter, men learn to be honest, and I lose the 20 stress  I’ve gained.  Grrrr.  

Wow, this wasn’t so much a cautionary tale of hair-baking follies as it was a venting session for 2010!

  1. Oh, I’m sorry. But that’s actually very funny!

    Have you ever made stained glass window cookies? That’s a great recipe to go candy crushing happy over. They look fabulous when they’re done, too (just remember to wear a hair net).

    1. Lol. It’s more funny now that I’m looking back on it. If it weren’t for the hair, I wouldn’t have had the story!

      I’ve never made stained glass window cookies – sounds like it’d be worth a try, though.

    1. Ha! Thanks, Emily! You know, in the end I don’t think it’s been too bad. I think I was focusing on what I didn’t have, but overall a lot of cool stuff happened too. 🙂

  2. I like the picture and the story. It is a good metaphor for how 2010 was for me. Looked promising at the start (mmmm! a cupcake!), then was not so good for a while (hmm… a hair), but in the end you remember that you have good friends and they went to the trouble to make something for you. So it wasn’t the best year but it balances out on the good side. I am definitely looking forward to a better 2011!

  3. The rest have proved to be great 😀 Not sure if they will make it TO the ferry tommorrow!! the first may have been tainted-but the truth lay in the rest… 🙂
