Ever happen to you?!....

Has this ever happened to you?! ... last night I worked hard in the middle of the night (baby wasn't sleeping) to make these marshmallow minions to top cupcakes (see below) to take to my first meeting of a mommy and me group I joined...

anyway... I finished them up, wasn't super happy with ALL of them (see my notes on what to do different next time), but all in all I thought it would make a good first impression.

well, Elias was up every 1 to 2 hours! WTH!?! We woke so exhausted and was hoping he would be doing better (group was at 11).. but he just seemed to be fussy (understandable, I was fussy too!) and threw up his breakfast after a bit of a rant.

...so we had to cancel going... now my minions are in the garbage because no way am I allowing myself to eat 25 of them! lol... has this every happened to you? you spend all this time on something and your kid gets sick?!

well, here's how they turned out (p.s. the bottoms aren't very clean but they were going to be pulled off the sticks sit on icing anyway)...



 here's the tutorial I followed (link) ... I didn't have blue fruit roll-ups so I used icing... didn't worry about the bottoms not being smooth, they were going to be sitting on icing.

Tips:
- wish I had made my own black icing, the tube kind I found to be a bit watery and therefore, not that easy to control (aka lots of cursing and mess lol)
- add a little oil to the candy melts... makes it easier to coat





so since we had to miss group... off to the garbage, at least I hadn't done the icing on the cupcakes yet! :o(  ...I can't justify eating all of these lol... especially not post pregger weight! lol

  1. Awe! So cute. I like the minions they are pretty easy to replicate on cute desserts. Hope everything is better! One time when my son was little we had a dinner party scheduled with some childless friends and one couple who had a newborn. All of a sudden my son starts with diarrhea and we had just started potty training to make it worse! I had to call all my friends and cancel! Then by the time evening came he was fine!

    1. Noni - we did a lavender bath last night but maybe I can try adding a little near him on the sheets or something... I am willing to try anything! He used to sleep much better!

  4. So sad. They are adorable! Too bad you couldn't have called one of the moms, said, come by get the dessert, I can't make it. I'm so glad I work in a BIG building so none of my creations go in the garbage. But I get it.

    3. @Little Z - I would have but it was the first time meeting anyone in a mommy & me group so felt a bit weird saying - hey you never met me, but pick these up and feed to your kids but I won't be there ;o) At least they saw pics and appreciated my effort! If I wasn't on maternity leave, my coworkers would have downed them lol! hugs!
