What to do if you Make a Mistake
This is a funny Friday flick I thought I’d share. Recently my youngest brother came to town for a visit. Even though he’s technically a grown-up, he’ll always be twelve years old to me.
The day that he arrived I was busy recording videos, so he had to be a lot quieter than he’s used to. By the final one he was ready to explode.
Long story short, his joking made me mess up the cookie I was working on, which led to this video, filmed and narrated by none other than my kid brother himself.
As usual I’m trying to be serious, and he’s having a good ol’ time.
This is one of those light bulb moments I had. Once upon a time, if I messed up on a cookie, it was either trashed or eaten. It took me a ridiculously long time to realize what you’re about to see. Pardon all the craziness and the first time camera man. This is NORMAL daily activity at my house! Have a great weekend everyone!
Gotta love those little brothers! Always trying to “help” 🙂
That’s so funny because I just recently figured that out after wasting so many cookies when I made mistakes. My friend asked me to decorate some cookies for her and she made the cookies and I decorated them. So when I smudged on one of them with my finger, I felt bad wasting one of her cookies, so I decided to try this and it worked!
Debbie I cannot tell you how many times back in my selling days I’d have exactly 25 cookies and mess up two. I’d literally fire up the oven and bake a batch. It seems like such an obvious solution but one that doesn’t occur to you unless someone tells you or you’re desperate. I still laugh at myself.
Ha! I love the brother/sister love! I’m glad I’m not the only one who eats her mess-ups. I too have started scraping and starting over…much to the dismay of my family. They love to eat “the ugly ones.” lol
I smiled the whole time watching that Callye! That was a really fun video and loved seeing or hearing you and your brother having fun together. My son LOVES it when I mess up on a cookie because I make him get rid of the evidence right away 😉
Awwww, how adorable! That’s really sweet, and it’s fun to see y’all interact like that! Also, the scraping is an AWESOME idea! I can’t believe I never thought of that!
I love the cookies! i wish i had found your blog before my friends baby shower. I would have loved to make these for her!! Love your blog, so happy i found it 🙂
I do exactly the same, but after using the knife, I use a paper towel. I love your cookies and your blog, but you already know this : Everybody loves Sugarbelle ja, ja, ja…

Great video, I was decorating cookies a couple of weeks ago and I happened to mess up on one, I felt bad wasting it so I ended up eating it ! I’m so glad, now I know a simple way to fix my cookies when I mess up – which happens a lot ! Thanks for sharing your simple cookie tips !
***At the end of the video, did your little brother say “Baa-aa” like, you know, a sheep says, or did he just say “bye” in a weird way ?
I always make a few spares, and even if there are no mistakes, there’ll be one or two for a family member. The joke around here is when a holiday approaches my son will ask my husband if he remembered to order cookies……
I use a paring knife to scrape it really clean…..’cause when I make a boo-boo, it’s usually a doozy!
Lmbo Gail. I always tell Dad. If I’m going to mess up I’ll just do it big. I don’t like to do anyting half-you know what 🙂
I’ve done this and I’m thinking on a lot more cookies than you’ve ever had to! So nice that your brother is home safe and able to come over and just hang out with you all.
Love how he says *ya, but it would make your teeth yellow* like that would be the neatest thing ever!
That is so much like what my little sister would do! 🙂
Gotta love brothers. Your brother sounds a lot like mine, only my brother is 8 years old than I am. He will always be a kid at heart.
I adore your blog please consider following me.
