For sweet mistakes, the slightest mistake can make an ugly disaster but still taste really great. Just stay calm and re-purpose the mistake where it is a condiment and not the star of the show; then you can come out on top! Like cakes; crumble the item and use crumbs as a topping for a parfait (“everybody loves a parfait” said the Donkey in Shrek) or crumble for a pie crust.
So when I make a mistake or someone in the bakery makes a mistake, I have fun running around the kitchen trying to figure out what I can make out of the mistake. Watch this 1 minute clip and this will help you keep your sense of humor the next time you think you have a disaster. The clip below is what runs through my mind when I make a mistake; don’t panic, be a Donkey!
