Ever had an I'ble just NOT go right? Answered


Well, The other night I set out to make two trays of treats for my work collegues on Christmas Eve... I then had a GREAT idea to turn them into I'bles

The peppermint Snowmen went great without any major unfixable hiccups... My candy Cane Fudge however *sigh* *face palm*

I deceided to make my Christmas treats into I'bles and Entries into the Christmas Gifts contest...So as I 'baked' I snapped away on my camera. Everything was going well until I was knocked by my dogs whilst adding the food colouring, so that it looked like a rainbow had vomited into my mix... then to add insult to injury, I dropped the cooling mixture on the way to the refridgerator.... Luckily I cought my camera... but the fudge was... well.. beyond repair.

What I wan't to know, is if you have ever had a disasterous I'ble attempt, and have you posted it?

One of my first instructables ended with me frying my beloved Fuji S5600, that was a great camera.

I've had dozens and dozens of failed projects, the supersaturated solution phase transform lamp would have been awesome, if it hadn't exploded.

The one corner of my Workplace is devoted to failed electronic projects (like trying to make the annoy-a-tron on my own, BEFORE they fixed the schematics...grrr). etc.

I want a workshop, my parents have re-claimed the shed... The garage is full of junk, so all I have got is my room, and the back yard... hehe

Definitely on the shed. Old wood is too good a conductor of electricity.

Actually, that could have been the problem!
