A Study in Frustration

So I decided to try my hand at some new things this week.  I can only call it an epic cookie fail. To say I'm in need of tips to improve is putting it mildly! Lol 

First . . . Circles. Yeah nothing else really needs to be said. I don't have a clue how anyone bakes a perfect circle.  Or how they pipe a perfect circle. It's obvious I can't.  *grin*

Beads . . . my nemesis. No matter what I do I end up with craters. I was using icing a bit thicker than 20 second. Before it was too thin. I'm very frustrated with this issue.  *bangs head on counter*

About the only good thing was experimenting with a watercolor effect. This was the first time I've tried to handpaint. It didn't turn out too bad but as usual my application was a bit sloppy. You should see my kitchen on baking days! *cough*

What frustrates you guys? I can't be the only on with an epic fail or two . . . Maybe three . . . But who's counting! Share with me so I know I'm not alone in my misery. LOL.
