Hi. My name is Meg. I’m mom to my curious little girl, Holden, and my handsome little man, Gatsby (I was an English major).

oh, bother. was created out of my struggle as a working mom in a Pinterest world. I’m a DIYer wannabe and creative design appreciator, but I usually find myself falling a bit short in the execution. You’ll see.

You can also find me on TwitterFacebookPinterest, and Instagram, or hit me up at ohbotherblog{at}gmail.com

Pinterest WIN: Rainbow Cupcake @ohbotherblog you read that right. take two on the rainbow cupcakes was a success. (in case you're just catching up, I want to do a rainbow/colorful theme for Holden's first birthday party, which is two weeks away. My first attempt at making Spearmint Baby's gorgeous rainbow cupcakes was a raging Pinterest fail.)

I did everything the same this time around, but instead of being aggressive and trying out my huge Wilton cupcake pan (I was thinking smash cake), I kept it reasonable and went with your standard cupcake.

It was late so I got lazy with the icing and just went with Betty, but I'll make my own for her actual party. I usually make Magnolia's vanilla buttercream icing, but I may try something new. I've had my eye on that coconut milk frosting that's all over Pinterest (another fail on the way?)

So this is how I eat a cupcake:

How to eat a cupcake: tear off the bottom and place on top. BOOM: cupcake sandwich @ohbotherblog

Tear off the bottom, plop it on top. BOOM: cupcake sandwich.

Thanks again to Spearmint Baby for the inspiration!

If you were hoping I'd screw it up again so I had another Pinterest fail, don't be sad: I also tried Oh Happy Day's Mini Cakes last night. So yeah, I have another fail to tell you all about. But we'll save that for another post.
