For the month of August, I have been taking my second cake decorating class. I love learning all these new flowers and how to make them.
Last Monday, I made my last batch of royal icing for class. It must be beat using a mixer for 7-10 minutes. This was my second batch of the day and boom, sparks flew and a weird smell came out of my mixer. Oh no, not again! Yes, I have burned up yet another hand mixer. Confession time: This is my fifth mixer that I have burned up. I must bake too much or make heavy duty items that don't go well with a hand mixer. After the demise of #5, I knew it was time to shell out the big bucks and get a Kitchenaid stand mixer.
