Recently I published a post hinting to my hubby that I would LOVE a KitchenAid mixer for Christmas and how gorgeous the new KitchenAid Platinum edition colours are.
Matchbox.com.au saw my plee and they ever so kindly have played Santa to this little blogger and gifted me a KitchenAid Platinum ‘Raspberry Ice’ Mixer. I was beyond shocked and squealed with excitement when they contacted me, I am so very grateful for to matchbox.com.au. Matchbox.com.au have made me a very happy blogger!

To receive this is a wonderful reward for all my efforts. I enjoy writing and sharing photo’s of how I organise around my home and I look forward to continuing through 2012!!

Meet my KitchenAid Mixer
I love baking, I have always been a happy to bake from scratch. Baking with my kids has been a great experience, it a wonderful way to spend time together and also educates them on weight and fractions.
Look… I’m sharing!!!!
I received it on Friday and so far I have made a banana cake, pavlova, quiche, raspberry muffins and a banana and pecan loaf. Will share recipes soon, but here is a peak….
So far each recipe has been absolutely beautiful, with the standout being the icing for the banana cake, it was not grainy or lumpy and was so silky. I’m glad that I have a spot for it on my bench as it is very heavy, which is perfect as I know when I am cooking and turn my back it won’t move. To my amazement the bowl is very light, to the eye it appears to be heavy, KitchenAid have worked their magic to make it a perfect weight, so it makes pouring a cake into the tin quiet easy.
