Having owned my own KitchenAid stand mixer since 2001, I am quite thrilled for of our soon-to-be winner!  My original 4 quart mixer has seen me through thick and thin.  I cannot even begin to count the endless batches of cake batter and icing it has endured over the years.  Not to mention cookie dough, pizza dough… I could go on!  So I can only image how awesome this powerful 7 quart model will be!

    I would mix batter to make my fabulous white chocolate cake, or tres leches cakes, and some sweet Swiss meringue buttercream. And make 4 batches of white chocolate and raspberry cookies.
    The possibilities are endles, with more power.

    Wow, a 7 qt. mixer that is quieter! Yes, please! I would be able to bake without my kids whining that the mixer is too loud and running all the time. Holiday Cookie Exchange time, here I come!

    I could most definitely use a new one!!! Like you I’ve had mine since 2001 and I can tell I’m about to need to replace it. I bake and decorate plenty of cakes so it has almost seen it’s day! I would love a new one before this one goes out on me.

    Cupcakes and muffins and breads, oh my! With fall coming I’m hoping to return to my weekly cupcake/muffin baking and hope to have a lot of fresh zucchini and pumpkin to work with! Also, I’m planning on some root beer flavored concoctions for my brother’s birthday in October. Oh, how I’ve dreamed of a Kitchen Aid mixer of my very own!

    I’m just starting out in my cupcake/cake business. Winning this would mean no more hand mixer and doing two separate batches for larger orders.
