I got my first standing mixer for Christmas from my mum! She’d actually bought it for herself in a sale before deciding it was too small, haha. Classic mum. I don’t mind though because free things!
I mean, it’s no KitchenAid, but it’s pretty cute. The mixer is detachable from the stand and also comes with dough hooks; will be interesting to try make some dough with it. The first thing I made with it (pictured here) were some vegan chocolate cupcakes to serve as a base for blackforest cakes.
The cupcakes were for a picnic! I had some leftover cherries from Christmas and some cherry jam, so decided to make blackforest cakes – completely forgetting one of my friends can’t stand blackforest! Gah. Oh well.
I love glitter cherries!
We had a great day eating snacks in the sun and having a great time! Following photo by my lovely friend Paige:
