I was making brownies with the kids this weekend. They were excited because you can use paint on them and make your our creepy designs. As I took the contents out of the box I noticed something odd. The bag that said vanilla icing didn't look right. I opened it to find a powdery substance, not an "icy" substance. This obviously screwed up the whole project. The icing was supposed to go on top of the brownies, then you would paint on that, after it dried of course. And before you say it, no, I did not say anything about adding water, or anything else to the packet. Actually the second ingredient listed was water. There was no water, let me tell you. We ended up having plain brownies, so it wasn't a total loss. I guess I shouldn't expect much from brownies made by Crayola.
