Now that we’re officially in the holiday spirit and The 12 Cakes of Christmas is well underway… I think it’s time for a little giveaway.  Don’t you?  We’ve partnered up with our friends at KitchenAid again to bring you another fabulous contest!  One that involves both giving and receiving.  This year you’ll be the ultimate baker and the ultimate gift giver!  Because one lucky reader will win a 5 quart KitchenAid Stand Mixer for you!  AND a 5-Speed KitchenAid Hand Blender for your best baking friend!!  It’s twice the prizes and twice the fun!  It’s twice the Ho, Ho, Ho!


Are you squealing as loud as I am?!  Seriously…. talk about an amazing prize!

I absolutely love my KitchenAid and use it for everything!  For 12 years now, my classic 4.5 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 am quite thrilled for our soon-to-be winner of this gorgeous 5 Quart KitchenAid Stand Mixer!



And in the true spirit of the season… it is better to give than to receive!  Our lucky winner will be able to share this prize with their best baking buddy!

Whether that’s Mom, Aunt Carol, or your best friend!  It’s your gift to give!  It’s a 5-Speed KitchenAid Hand Blender!!  Stainless steel blades and five different attachments will have your best buddy blending, chopping and shredding with ease.  It can even froth milk for espresso drinks (now we’re really talking!).  Just think of your bestie happily frothing up a peppermint latte for you… as a way of saying thank you!  For sharing your amazing prize!  Oh what joy!

    As the Kitchenaid is the sexiest looking mixer ever, I’d have to whip up something sexy to go with it…

    This would be wonderful to have. I would make cakes,cookies , pizza dough,homeade bread and rolls . The possibilities are endless.Would sure make things a whole lot easier.

    Are you kidding? I couldn’t possibly count the ways I would use a Kitchen-Aid Stand Mixer. But, I would start out making my signature cookies and then maybe some caramel salted brownies and then…. You get the picture.

    Cakes, Cupcakes and cookies for my friends and family. I currently mix everything with a hand mixer. This would male things a lot faster.

    Missy Janeway says

    I would make lots of baked treats. Currently I am working on lots of gingerbread and royal icing for a gingerbread house party. I have a wonderful Kitchenade Mixer but it has only one attachment and I would love to mix my breads and meringues properly.. as well as happily use it for all the other treats I love making. Then I could share my current mixer with someone who can’t afford one.
