Denial - "I did not just use 5 sticks of butter to make these sticky buns. I did not just spend 12 hours making these sticky buns."
Anger - "I used 5 sticks of butter and spent 12 hours making these sticky buns and they are no better than this?! They have so much butter, it's running down my childrens' faces as they eat the sticky buns. This is not buttered corn on the cob, these are sticky buns!"
Bargaining - "If I could somehow just suck some of the butter out of these rolls, they would be good. If only I had trusted my instinct that 3-1/2 cups of flour cannot support 5 sticks of butter..."
Depression - "I thought I was a better baker than this; but these aren't any good. They have an oily taste with all that butter. I gave some of these buns to my neighbors. They will think I have jumped the shark with these sticky buns. My baking life is over."
