The Show Must Go On

While making a batch of caramel corn for an upcoming project, I ended up making caramel covered knuckles instead. 
WARNING: the next picture isn't pretty

When I poured the caramel on my hand I immediately put my hand under cool running water. (While I stirred the popcorn with my left.) Then I soaked it in a bowl of cool water for about 20 minutes. The next day I went to the doctor, where I cried like a baby when I got a tetanus shot, (I wasn't even close to crying when I got burned.) and they lathered some lotion on it and wrapped it up so I wouldn't stretch the blister.  I wasn't quite good as new, but I did manage to make another batch of caramel :)

This weekend I should have some really good cupcakes to show after all this drama.
