Failed Birthday Treat


Last week it was my daughter’s birthday and she finally could treat her classmates. I made chocolate flowers, but to be honest they didn’t came out my hands as I had them in my head.  
First: what I wanted to make where little flower pots with two little flowers and a butterfly, but although I didn't use any baking powder, the cookies came out of the oven way to big, so there was just enough room for one cookie. 
Second: I wanted to plant the flowers in play dough in little terracotta pots, but unfortunately the shop where they sell the little pots didn’t have enough of them, so I had to turn to something else.  I took cup cake liners instead, but because the flowers were too big some of them topped over all the time, as the cake liners weren’t heavy enough to keep them upright. 
It was much too late to start making other treats, so I had to leave it this way.
All in all not the nice, great looking project I had in my mind. I guess I don't have any talent for making nice treats, because this isn't my first failure, as you can see here
But.., there’s another chance in January, when my other daughter has her birthday J ! New round, new chance!
