We’ve all been there. You’re trying to make your kid’s birthday party special and you want to do something big and bold to accomplish it. So you decide to take on a project you saw online or on Pinterest that may be slightly above your skillset. Instead of it looking Pintastic like the photos or video it winds up looking Pinterrible.
Don’t feel too bad. It happens to everyone. Yes, even including celebrities who can afford to have someone else do it for them in the first place.
Actress Zooey Deschanel, best known for her roles in the movie 500 Days of Summer and TV’s New Girl, was celebrating her daughter’s first birthday with a party. She, like many of us, decided to try to earn parent of the year points by making her own special first birthday cake. While she had the right idea by trying to create a smash cake, a hot trend we’ve talked about before here on the blog, the execution fell, well, short.
Deschanel shared her daughter’s first birthday party story on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
Don’t feel too bad Zooey, we’ve all been there before.
