A MUM was left gutted after her attempt to make popcorn in the air fryer ended in an “absolute disaster”.
Laura, from Scotland, regularly shares her organising tips and food creations with fans on TikTok – @unorganisedmummy – as she “tries to get her backside in gear”.

Since picking up a £99 Sur La Table air fryer in Costco, she’s also been sharing some cooking tips on social media.
In a recent video, Laura revealed she had a craving for popcorn so decided to try it in her air fryer.
But the experiment was a total fail as she was left with a pile of burnt kernels.
In the clip, the mum said: “I’m making popcorn in my air fryer.
“Wee bit of olive oil because that’s what you do in your pan. Just a wee smidge.
“I’ve not got very many kernels left but they’ll do. These are from Tesco and they’re dead cheap.
“Now close the drawer, press play and hope for the best.
“I’ve got no idea if this works or not but I fancied a wee bit of popcorn so we’re going to give it a go.”
After setting her air fryer to 200C, she gave the kernels a shake after a few minutes before popping them back in.
But with just one piece popping, she was forced to keep it in for longer.
She added: “One’s popped. F*** sake, I’m not feeling very confident.
“Bloody hope it works.
“Sake, it’s burnt.”
Obviously disappointed by her ruined snack, Laura told followers: “Well that didn’t go to plan! Wasted the last of my popcorn.
“Air fryer disaster.”
Social media users managed to see the funny side, as one joked: “Thank you for doing this so I didn’t have to.”
We told earlier how Laura used her air fryer to make the “best Christmas baguette ever”.
In a short clip, the mum can be seen cooking part baked baguettes in on drawer of the air fryer while pigs in blankets sizzle away in the other side.
Once both are cooked, she spreads butter and cranberry sauce on the warm roll before adding her pigs in blankets and tucking in.
She said: “Pigs in blankets are so underrated. They should be an everyday food.”
