I had found a carrot cake recipe that I wanted to try and I was going to follow the recipe exactly.

I par cooked the carrots and put them into a blender (I didn't have a food processor then). I thought the cover was on tightly and boy was I surprised when the lid came flying off while it was still whirring!

My face was totally covered in carrots as were the cupboards and yes, you guessed it - the ceiling.

My stepdaughter was visiting and none of them had ever seen me "unnerved"! I started to cry and she was like "what can I do and she got my husband - well--- he started laughing so hard, I thought he would cry too!

He immediately cleaned up the mess, went out and got more carrots for me! I started all over and the cake came out beautiful!

We still call it the Ceiling Carrot Cake and it is a family favorite. I only regret that we didn't take a picture - I'm sure my face was pretty silly looking.

Thanks for letting me tell you my story!

Oh! Poor Linda D. I can just imagine how you must have felt. Like to have your recipe some day though.

As bad as it was; it sure is a good memory for you and your family. It brought a smile to my face. :)
