Day 113(2 days late): Sweet Roll FAIL!

Posted by annagrace under Days 101-200

I’m beginning to think that I’m a failure in the kitchen. Or rather, I think I just lack adequate cooking supplies. That, and the fact that my oven does not cook at the temperature you set it at. I’m constantly burning things in it. Grrrr…

At any rate, I’m starting a diet on the 1st, so I’ve been trying to get rid of all the bad foods in my apartment for less temptation. I decided that I would make the tube of sweet rolls in the fridge for work tomorrow… and then I thought, why not make the rolls into the shape of something and use it for my 365 project!! (That’s how my brain works now… how can I make this creative??) So I decided, since I work at a paint store, why don’t I make a paint can? So I did! Here it is before baking

I swirled two of the rolls together to make the lid and smushed one to make the base with half of another roll. The other half became the handle.

So I put them in the oven at 400 degrees just like it says and set my timer for 15 min, following the directions. At about 12 minutes in, I decided to check on them because I’ve issues with stuff burning in my oven in the past… and they looked like this.

BURNED!!! Arrrgggg…. I hate my oven!! But I decided, I might as well ice them and eat them myself (if they were edible) over the next few days rather than throw them out, so, using a knife, I tried to write Benjamin Moore on the can. I realized very quickly that in order to even remotely see the icing, I would have to write it bigger, so I was able to fit the BE and part of the N and then just the M and 2 o’s…. But you still couldn’t really see it…

Soooo… I ended up just icing the whole thing. No need to waste the tasty icing!

I think a couple of them might still be okay to take to work, but even if they’re not, they’ll get eaten eventually! It doesn’t look at all like a paint can in the final result, but at least the raw dough sort of does! :neutral:
