When marshmellows attack!

So here I am making some fondant icing for a baby cake. I am throwing a baby shower for a girl at work this weekend. The first thing to do when making the icing is melt marshmellows... harmless right? So I put the bowl of marshmellows in the microwave and every 30 seconds I take the bowl out and stir them up. Well putting the bowl back into the microwave I dropped the spoon I was using, only for it to land on my face! The marshmellows had stuck my lower eylashes to my upper eyelashes and to my eyelid. Freaking out I run to the bathroom half blind because my eye was stuck halfway shut! Luckily splashing water on my face disolved the marshmellows and I could then open my eyes again. Scary!!! My eye won't stop hurting, so hopefully it doesn't swell up. If it does I'll have to come up with a better excuse than marshmellows attacking me. Man... who knew baking cakes was such hard work!

Hahahaha! This post made me laugh out loud literally! How did you drop the spoon on your face? Were you below your hand? I hope it doesn't swell up either, but that is so funny! How did last night go? I wasn't able to make it over, but would've loved to.

Poor Kellie! That sounds like something I would do. I knocked a glass over in my kitchen a few years ago and somehow ended up having to get stitches on the back of my hand.

Now I have heard everything! Kellie, how did that happen. Poor girl, all because you were doing something good for someone else. Surely you will be blessed and you will be okay. Let us know how you feel now.

There is an unspoken rule that you have to post a picture of anything with the potential to make us all laugh hysterically.

Seriously, I hope it didn't hurt too bad. But next time.....pictures.

I totally agree with ang and sheryl we needed a picture. Although you do paint quite the mental one.
