Su single handedly managed her weekend of orders and shelf products like a champ.
Long serrated knife in right; knife in cake;Knife through cake; knife through left! *BLOOD*
That was basically what disabled my entire left palm saturday morning. I had 3 little cakes and 60 cupcakes to deliver by 7.
Mini Cakes and cupcakes for the morning weekend traffic at our Delectable outlet were waiting to be covered and decorated. But how?!My handy pair of sugar crafting 'machines' were reduced to one. My first thought was "CRAP! I don't have a band-aid big enough!" Haha I eventually made do with 4 band-aids.Lucky me; it was an incredibly sharp knife! The wound should heal within a day; it's pretty alright now, just the pulsing in my hand that annoys me every time I pick something heavy up. Making lime curd and liquids for my cakes is a real killer for me too!
It's a good excuse to work on more paper work and writing; attend my weekend Salsa lessons for a change! Sleep maybe? HahaI'm feeling a little helpless today; I've finally decided to slow it down a little. Allow the wound to close; working with a glove really is nasty when I'm in a hurry to complete my weekend projects.
*sigh* I need to learn to work calm and collected.
I guess haste was what got me into this in the first place!
I can almost hear Chef James in my head going: "I told you so Su Yin!"
Any offers to volunteer their perfectly good left hands tonight? *grin*
