So a couple of weeks ago, I tried out for Season Two of Netflix’s baking show “Nailed It.” They have not announced the people who did make the cut for Season 2, but I haven’t heard back, so I assume that mine did not make it. They did comment that it was hilarious, so I can walk away knowing I at least made an impression. I had so much fun making the cookie for my entry, so I wanted to show it to y’all.
If you haven’t watched the show, it plays off of people always saying “Nailed It” when they attempt a masterful Pinterest creation, only for theirs to be pretty awful. The show is so funny, and I highly recommend it.
My little creation was no exception to the Pinterest fails. I have always been able to bake well, but decorating is a completely different story. It took me over two hours to do this, and I had never used royal icing before, but it turned out much better than expected. The challenge was to bake a cookie and decorate it to match one of my selfies, and then upload it to social media and tag them.
Doing this challenge has inspired me to continue trying to become a better decorator for baked goods, in the hopes that one day I won’t completely embarrass my future children.
Did I “Nail It”?
