So my brother and neice stopped by last night as I was making a batch of Antonia's Icing. I chatted with them while I worked, not thinking anything of it. Well, last night I'm in bed and it hits me....instead of adding Cream of Tartar, I added Baking Powder!!LOL! Of course I come to this realization AFTER I've already iced the cookies, that by the way are my VERY FIRST order! icon_cry.gif Anyway, I obviously need to only do one thing at a time. Live and learn!

That happens to me all the time, all of a sudden I can practically wake up out of a deep sleep and realize that I goofed or forgot about something!

Oh, I am notorious for not being able to carry on a conversation and work at the same time! SO glad the cookies worked out! My favorite goof was when my best friend flew in for a visit. For breakfast I made a Dutch Apple Baby Pancake dusted with powdered sugar. However, I discovered once we started to eat that I had grabbed the container with cornstarch! OOPS! icon_lol.gif

Bummer for you, but glad they still tasted okay...that's the important part! I bet every single person here culd tell you a goof that they committed, or someone they know committed. My favorite story was when my aunt made brownies and added cough syrup instead of vanilla. I guess the worst mistake I can think of is the recent story of the day care worker that served the kids windshield washer fluid instead of kool aid. Some things we can laugh at, others just make us gasp!

Well, you don't need cream of tartar in RI. I never use it because I cannot get it here.

But here is my goof: I have everything, I mean everything in non original container - glass jars from baby food or yogurt, instant coffee glasses etc. Mostly everything is labeled, but sometimes I "know" it would be OK not to label it. The last time I filled the salt in the fine granulated sugar container. Luckily, I tested the "sugar" before giving it to my sponge cake icon_biggrin.gif

Now, I have 1/4 can of sugar/salt mix. Any takers?
