redeeming myself in the baking dept

I am redeeming myself in my younger son's eyes. The last time I baked these scones, on Valentine's Day, I accidentally used salt instead of sugar. I know what you guys are thinking. You're reading this going, "there is no way she really did that". Yes folks, I did. And to make matters worse, I didn't realize I had done this until I had drizzled delectable lemon glaze over, oh, about 60 heart-shaped scones (since both boys wanted to bring a special snack into their classes that day). I had gotten up at the crack of dawn to bake, so it was perfectly acceptable for me to completely freak out. But wait, I knew I baked the first batch with sugar straight from the was in the second, third and fourth batch that I had used "sugar" from the big canister in my baking cupboard. Wait a minute. How the heck did salt get into my sugar canister anyway? Ugh, no time to figure that out. I tried (in vain) to locate the first batch of scones from amid the pretty platters stacked high with (salty) treats. Thinking I had located enough at least for my younger son's class, I still warned his teachers at drop-off. By all accounts, they were like salt licks. Inedible. Fast forward two months. Today when I asked my little one what he'd like to bring in for class snack he said, "oooh, how about scones! The ones with jelly! They are so yummy. I love them...But this time will you make them with sugar instead of salt?"
