I'm a Pinterest Turkey

I can do a lot of things.  I can sew just about anything anyone asks me too.  I have been known to get nasty with a glue gun.  I'm a pretty good saleswoman when it comes to getting my way.  I can wash clothes like crazy (putting them up is a different story).  I can knit.  I can crochet.  I can do homework.  I can understand economics (love economics).  I can fix things (thanks Dad!).  I can remember the weirdest things.  I can do a lot of things.  Some of those things I can even do well.

I CAN NOT bake.  Nope - not a chance.  Well, I mean sure I can bake things but perhaps it is better to say I can not decorate.  There was a time in my life where I could.  I once made a chocolate ganache cake with a hand rolled fondant ruffle edge.  But that was before the babies.  I had 4 hours to make that cake -- and believe me I needed every minute.

So comes today.  I find this cute Pinterest Turkey Rice Crispy Treat tutorial.  Easy enough to make for the  leader's class -- so wrong.  I stink like the princess's diapers.  I will let the pictures say for themselves.  

This is my first attempt at the turkey.  

Guess which one is mine and which one is the architect's?  
Yup - FAIL (on my part)

 So then I had the great idea to make "cake pops".  Except ALL the sticks are still in the bowl - 

Then I realized that I was in Rice Crispy Hell and I started clawing my way out.  FAIL

I guess I need to face the truth and know that Martha Stewart will never be calling.  I will never make that coveted TV apperance.  Now, if someone could only tell me, if I can't bake then why do I look like I do?.......hmmmmmm.
