Okay, I have a new vent! I have a 3-tier wedding cake and two half sheet cakes to bake this week for Saturday. The bride has asked that it ALL be carrot cake. So, today I go to use my food processor's shredding blade and it is in four pieces. I ask DH and he looks sheepish and says that he forgot to tell me that it broke the last time he shredded cheese for pizza (about a month or so ago).

I am NOT shredding 10 bushels of carrots (okay a slight exageration) by hand! I have been saving up for a KitchenAid Pro model to match my mixer; but don't have enough yet. So, I guess I start calling friends and see if I can borrow one.

I don't mind the fact that it broke - these things happens. It is the fact I didn't know it until I needed it!

And now you tell DH if he breaks anything else you need to make your cakes, he best put on his track shoes and run like , well like the wind..
Then I'd point him in the direction of the nearest store that carries what you need and say go boy or and hand him a peeler and a shredder...Then go take a nap Wish I was closer and I'd loan ya my Cuisinart to use.

Yeah, there are times that I really kick myself for not bringing my large, heavy duty processor here..........never realized that you would have to grate your own cheese here and it's a pain when you need a lot.........all I have is the small Cuisinart model.....but our company has strict weight limits and will charge a lot for extra weight.......when leaving they will send a moving company's rep to "guesstimate" how much you have but upon packing up they will send it to be officially weighed.....the container weight is counted as well and the large processor might have put us over......they told us that we were almost there on the capacity

Thanks Kades, I wish I had waited and bought either a KitchenAid or a Cuisinart to begin with. Anything I have from those two companies works like a charm! As for DH, he promised that if I can't find one in time he WILL grate all my carrots for me. Sweet guy!

I use a Salad Shooter for my carrots. I use mine when I've got a lot to shred or grate. To grate, you put the shredded carrots back through it by using the shredder thing. Whenever I just need a very small amount, I just use my stand-up shredder.
