Hazards of Baking

Today I made a delicious cherry tart (recipe and pics to be posted shortly) but unfortunately it was not entirely smooth sailing. I neglected to remember that tart pans have a removable bottom which helps you lift out your beautifully crimped tart dough and slide it onto a platter. As I lifted the dough out of the oven I mistakenly held it by the bottom. Whoosh went the tart bottom, leaving the rim to fall onto my arm. And now I have a lovely red line on my arm as reminder to always hold by the edges when making a tart. Time will tell how it heals.

On the bright side, my tart has a great release system. 

How to handle a burn: Wash with copious amount of cold water. Keep chilled. (If using ice, wrap in a towel or plastic NOT a paper towel which can leave fibers on your skin. Place some aloe on the wound as necessary. If it hurts excessively or covers a large amount of skin please seek medical help. It's better safe than sorry.
